Survival (S) and progression-free survival (PFS) were evaluated in 129 advanced ovarian cancer patients, who achieved a macroscopic complete response (112 pathological complete response and 17 microscopic disease) at second-look after platinum-based combination chemotherapy with or without doxorubicin (DX). The impact on S and PFS of age, performance status (PS), stage, histology, grade (G), residual disease after first surgery (RD), chemotherapy regimen, disease status at second-look and consolidation therapy were evaluated by univariate and multivariate analysis. In the 118 months observation period, median S and PFS were 81 and 34 months, respectively. Stage, G, RD, PS and disease status at second-look had significant impact on both S and PFS in univariate analysis, whereas consolidation therapy did not influence outcome. Cox's regression analysis showed that G, RD and PS had an independent impact on PFS. Test for interaction demonstrated no statistically significant relationship between RD, chemotherapy regimen and outcome. In conclusion, advanced ovarian cancer patients with macroscopically complete remission at second-look have a substantial risk of relapse after aggressive treatment. The risk of recurrence was estimated to be maximal in the first 3 years after restaging, and was correlated with poor PS, RD > 2 cm after first surgery and undifferentiated tumour.
