Effects of vinorelbine plus cisplatin as second-line neoadjuvant chemotherapy regimen in the treatment of breast cancer

, : Effects of vinorelbine plus cisplatin as second-line neoadjuvant chemotherapy regimen in the treatment of breast cancer. Zhonghua Yi Xue Za Zhi 93(2): 93-95

To study the value of a combination of vinorelbine and cisplatin (NP) as second-line neoadjuvant chemotherapy regimen for primary breast cancer. Primary breast cancer patients on neoadjuvant chemotherapy and non-responsive to anthracyclines plus taxanes received the NP regimen. The clinical objective response was evaluated with dynamic contrast-enhanced magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) according to RECIST 1.1 before operation. The pathological response was evaluated by the Miller-Payne grading system. And the toxicities were observed and evaluated according to National Cancer Institute-Common Terminology Criteria Version 3.0 (NCI-CTC v3.0). A total of 33 breast cancer patients were examined. The outcomes were complete remission (CR, n = 0, 0%), partial remission (PR, n = 16, 48.5%), stable disease (n = 17, 51.5%) and progressive disease (n = 0, 0%). The clinical responsive rate (CR + PR) rate was 48.5%. The pathological response rates were G1 (n = 6, 18.2%), G2 (n = 6, 18.2%), G3 (n = 10, 30.3%), G4 (n = 9, 27.2%) and G5 (n = 2, 6.1%). And the pathological response (G3+G4+G5) was found in 21 cases (63.6%). The most common toxicities included neutropenia and nausea/vomiting. No serious toxicities were observed. As a well-tolerated and effective regimen, NP regimen may be recommended as an option of second-line neoadjuvant chemotherapy regimen for primary breast cancer.
