A total of 44 women received a combination of ifosfamide (1.5 g/m2 daily x5) and cisplatin (50 mg/m2 on day 1 only) as first-line chemotherapy for recurrent or metastatic carcinoma of the cervix. In all, 12/42 (38%) evaluable patients responded, with the median duration of response being 7 months. Bone marrow and gastrointestinal toxicity were frequently severe. There were 3 septic death. Although cisplatin plus ifosfamide is an active combination against this disease, these results suggest that it is no more so than either drug used alone.
