Dr Andres Poveda – Fundacion Instituto Valenciano de Oncologia, Spain

Dr Andres Poveda talks to ecancer at the 2012 ESMO meeting about the treatment of platinum resistant ovarian cancer.  

 

Tivantinib is now used to increase progression free survival in clinical trials with positive early results.  Results offer hope to patients in the worst condition. Previously patients with high resistance to treatments were treated mainly in the palliative setting.

 

Bevacizumab has been also added to treatments with the potential of doubling progression free survival. This breakthrough is set to increase quality of life and reduce symptoms as well.
