Women from St. Petersburg, FL, can access the latest advances in uterine cancer chemotherapy at Moffitt Cancer Center, located only a short drive away in Tampa. We offer a world-class range of chemotherapy treatments, from traditional medications that are currently considered the “gold standard” of uterine cancer chemotherapy, to today’s newest medication combinations that are only available through clinical trials.
To be most effective, uterine cancer chemotherapy requires a highly individualized approach. This is why the team at Moffitt:
- Evaluates each patient’s unique diagnosis and tumor profile to determine which medications are likely to be most effective
- Considers a patient’s previous treatment history to learn more about how the patient’s body may respond to different medications
- Discusses potential outcomes and side effects with a patient to ensure that any treatment recommendations reflect the patient’s unique wishes
- Comprises numerous medical specialists, including uterine cancer surgeons, gynecologic oncologists, radiation oncologists and reproductive specialists, to ensure that all recommendations seamlessly complement each other for optimal results
We offer many forms of chemotherapy, including oral and intravenous medications. The most common medications prescribed for uterine cancer are paclitaxel, cisplatin, carboplatin, doxorubicin and ifosfamide, although our team is routinely evaluating additional options through our clinical research program. As a National Cancer Institute-designated Comprehensive Cancer Center, we make it possible for patients from St. Petersburg to access novel, world-class treatments – including chemotherapy drugs – before those options are widely available in other settings.
