Recurrence after 4th line

1st line 6 cycles iv taxol + carbo & 3 cycles IP cisplatin consolidation (1 Year Remission)

2d line 6 cycles iv carboplatin + Doxil ( No surgery) and PET/CT at end of treatment showed No Evidence of Disease ( 1 Year Remission)

3d line Gemzar + Avastin + Oxaliplatin (no surgery) and PET/CT at end of treatment showed No Evidence of Active Disease 7 month remission.

4th line 12 weekly taxol CA125 today which came in at 8.5 at end of treatment.  4 Months remission.

Her latest CA124 has gone up to 135.  Her performance status is very good and she has no symptoms currently.  What options do we have this time around?

Hi there

you should ask her doctor about trying carboplatin again
it looks like it has been over a year since she has seen platinum
other option include:
-doxil again
-topotecan
-avastin with cytoxan

has she ever been on hormone therapy such as tamoxifen?
please keep in touch
best wishes
