In short


  • Types of radiation therapy currently used to treat cervical cancer are external beam radiation therapy (EBRT), intensity-modulated radiotherapy (IMRT), and brachytherapy (internal RT).
  • The most effective single agent which has been used for the last three decades to treat cervical cancer is the platinum-based chemotherapeutic, cisplatin. Currently, topotecan, paclitaxel and other non-platinum-based chemotherapeutics such as 5-fluorouracil and bleomycin, are commonly used in combination with cisplatin for treating cervical cancer.
  • EGFR is overexpressed in approximately 70% of cervical squamous cell carcinomas where it regulates growth, survival, proliferation, and differentiation
  • Promising genetic therapy for cervical cancer employs genetic approaches such as CRISPR/Cas9 and RNAi
