INTRODUCTION

The following material represents a subset of chemotherapy regimens that are used for the treatment of women with gynecologic cancers. This is not an exhaustive list; it includes regimens that are considered by the authors and editors to be commonly used and important for the care of patients with gynecologic cancers. Additional regimens may be added over time, particularly as treatment for gynecologic cancers evolve.

This topic review is intended to provide only a listing of chemotherapy regimens. It does not address the appropriate context for use of these regimens in the care of patients with gynecologic cancer. Clinicians should refer to the individual disease-oriented topic reviews that discuss the use of these protocols in appropriate clinical situations:

Ovarian cancer

(See "First-line chemotherapy for advanced (stage III or IV) epithelial ovarian, fallopian tubal, and peritoneal cancer".)

(See "Adjuvant therapy of early stage (stage I and II) epithelial ovarian, fallopian tubal, or peritoneal cancer".)

(See "Medical treatment for relapsed epithelial ovarian, fallopian tubal, or peritoneal cancer: Platinum-sensitive disease".)
