Analysis of Stage I EFHWTs Treatment Finds Event-Free Survival and Overall Survival Rates Greater Than 95%

Data for stage I epithelial-predominant favorable-histology Wilms tumors (EFHWTs) reported greater than a 95% event-free survival rate and overall survival rate, supporting the utility of investigating the treatment of stage I EFHWTs with observation alone after nephrectomy, according to a recent study published in Cancer.

Specifically, the 4-year event-free survival (EFS) rate was 96.2% (95% CI, 92%-100%), while the 4-year overall survival (OS) rate was 100%. More, the EFS and OS rates did not statistically significantly differ with the age at diagnosis (<48 vs ≥48 months; P= .37) or treatment (EE4A vs observation only; P= .55).

“The current study examines the outcomes of all patients with stage I EFHWTs registered in a cooperative group clinical study to evaluate the feasibility of treating these patients without adjuvant chemotherapy through a retrospective review,” wrote…
