g/m2) 3x weekly during 5 weeks of cisplatin (40 mg/m2, 70 mg maximum) chemoradiation. Brachytherapy followed. Toxicity was monitored by common terminology criteria for adverse events v3.0. Response was assessed by exam and 3-month posttherapy positron emission tomography (PET/CT). Institutional review board approval was provided for conduct of research. Results: 14 patients tolerated 206 (98%) of 210 planned 3-AP infusions. Four patients experienced reversible 3-AP-related grade 3 leukopenia or thrombocytopenia. Two patients had reversible, possibly 3-AP-related, grade 3 hypokalemia and hyponatremia. One patient with pre-existing portal hypertension had a less than 30-day post-chemoradiation grade 4 hemorrhage secondary to an iatrogenic Mallory-Weiss tear of gastric varices, occurring before brachytherapy and resulting in death. 13 (93%) of 14 patients achieved durable complete clinical responses (median follow-up 9 months, range 3-18 months). 10 (91%) of 11 patients had 3-month PET/CT scans that recorded metabolic activity in the cervix or vagina equal or less than that of the cardiac blood pool, suggesting complete metabolic responses. Conclusions: 3-AP given 3x weekly co-administered with cisplatin chemoradiation is well tolerated and associated with a high clinical and metabolic response. Further accrual is on-going (Grant: Case Western Reserve University 5U01 CA062502).
