Abstract

OBJECTIVE: Kaposi sarcoma is an angioproliferative disease. Kaposi sarcoma is clinicopathologically classified into four subgroups based on epidemiological data. For its systemic treatment, in addition to some chemotherapeutics, taxanes have also been used during the recent years for their anti-angiogenic properties. In this study, we aimed to compare paclitaxel and non-paclitaxel chemotherapeutic regimens in terms of efficacy and side effects.
