    New; endometrial Stage IIIc or IV, looking for metronomic chemotherapy

    I had hysterectomy in May 2019. Oncologist offers carboplatin & paclitaxel at MTD followed by radiation. Asked about IV Vitamin C either as stand alone or adjuvant and oncologist says he would be embarrassed to admit he considered it.

    Gynecologist called around to see if anyone offered metronomic chemotherapy (low dose, few adverse side effects) to no avail.

    Does anyone know what oncologists offer it?

    Thanks

    PubMed only finds four papers for the search terms metronomic chemotherapy endometiral: https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/...py+endometrial

    ScholarGoogle finds quite a few more: https://scholar.google.com/scholar?h...ometrial&btnG=

    Your best bet could be to read the papers, find where those teams are working, and ask them about the therapy. They will know if it is past the experimental stage.
