Carboplatin/paclitaxel Reactions 1680, p83 - 2 Dec 2017 Febrile neutropenia, neuropathy and anorexia: 3 case reports In a retrospective study of 52 patients, three patients [ages and sexes not stated] were described, who developed febrile neutropenia, neuropathy or anorexia during treatment with carboplatin and paclitaxel [durations of treatment to reactions onsets and outcomes not stated]. Patient 1: a patient developed febrile neutropenia during treatment with carboplatin and paclitaxel. The patient, who had progression of urothelial carcinoma after gemcitabine and cisplatin chemotherapy, received IV infusion of carboplatin AUC 5 and IV infusion of paclitaxel 175 mg/m on day 1. The cycle was repeated every 21 days. Subsequently, the patient developed grade 3 febrile neutropenia. Patient 2: a patient developed neuropathy during treatment with carboplatin and paclitaxel. The patient, who had progression of urothelial carcinoma after gemcitabine and cisplatin chemotherapy, received IV infusion of carboplatin AUC 5 and IV infusion of paclitaxel 175 mg/m on day 1. The cycle was repeated every 21 days. Subsequently, the patient developed grade 3 neuropathy. Patient 3: a patient developed anorexia during treatment with carboplatin and paclitaxel. The patient, who had progression of urothelial carcinoma after gemcitabine and cisplatin chemotherapy, received IV infusion of carboplatin AUC 5 and IV infusion of paclitaxel 175 mg/m on day 1. The cycle was repeated every 21 days. Subsequently, the patient developed grade 3 anorexia. Author comment: "Table IV shows the toxicities associated with [paclitaxel and carboplatin] chemotherapy." "[F]ebrile neutropenia was only observed in 1 patient". "With regard to non-hematological toxicities, grade 3 neuropathy and grade 3 anorexia developed in 1 patient each." Furubayashi N, et al. The combination of paclitaxel and carboplatin as second-line chemotherapy can be a preferred regimen for patients with urothelial carcinoma after the failure of gemcitabine and cisplatin chemotherapy.
