Abstract: Aim: To determine the survival and prognostic factors of patients with primary fallopian tube cancer (PFTC) who had been treated with paclitaxel and carboplatin chemotherapy. Methods: The records of patients with PFTC who had been treated between 2002 and 2010, identified through the report of Chiang Mai University Hospital, were reviewed. All patients had pathological materials initially reported or reviewed by a gynecologic pathologist before initiation of treatment. Results: Thirty patients met the inclusion criteria. Median age was 51 years. Serous adenocarcinoma was observed in the majority of patients (76.7%). Approximately 46% of patients were in stage III. The 5-year progression-free survival (PFS) for all patients was 37.2%. The 5-year PFS was 75.0% for stage I, 51.4% for stage II and 18.5% for stage III. Median PFS of the entire cohort was 26.0 months with a 95% confidence interval (CI) of 18.733.3 months. This rate was 18.5 months (95% CI, 6.735.6) for stage III whereas it was not reached for patients of stage III. Serous histology and stage were noted to be significant independent predictors of PFS with an adjusted hazards ratio of 7.54 (95% CI, 1.3442.4) and 6.19 (95% CI, 1.5924.08), respectively. Conclusion: The 5-year PFS of the whole cohort was 37.2% with a median survival of 26 months. International Federation of Gynecology and Obstetrics stage and histological subtype were a significant independent factor for predicting PFS. © 2013 Japan Society of Obstetrics and Gynecology.
