Abstract Share this page

This study evaluated the efficacy and toxicity of belotecan (CKD-602), a new camptothecin analogue topoisomerase i inhibitor, in patients with recurrent or refractory epithelial ovarian cancer. Data from 63 patients who had been treated with intravenous belotecan (0.5 mg/m(2)/day), administered for 5 days every 3 weeks at a single institute in Seoul, Korea, were collected retrospectively. The overall response rate was 30.2% including 9 patients with complete remission (CR) and the progression free survival was a median of 6.5 (0.7 - 29.7) months. The platinumsensitive group had a significantly higher response rate and longer progression-free survival more than the platinum-resistant group. The most common adverse effect of belotecan was hematologic toxicity which was tolerable. As a single chemotherapy agent, belotecan was effective in treating recurrent or refractory epithelial ovarian cancer, and had acceptable toxicity. Further studies of the efficacy of belotecan in combination with platinum or the other agents are warranted.
