Until 2014, chemotherapy was the only treatment option available for patients with persistent, recurrent, or metastatic disease. However, treatment with the anti–vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) agent, bevacizumab, in combination with paclitaxel and cisplatin or paclitaxel and topotecan was granted approval by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for the treatment of this patient population in August 2014.
