Overall Status
Cervical cancer is one of the major health problems for chinese women. Besides surgery and radiotherapy, neoadjuvant chemotherapy has been proved to be an effective program by many studies.

However, not all patients respond well to neoadjuvant chemotherapy. Knowing the therapeutic effect of the neoadjuvant chemotherapy before receiving it can not only reduce the economic burden, but also more importantly save time to take more suitable treatments.

This study is undertaken to build a model combine both clinical and genetic factors to predict the effects of neoadjuvant chemotherapy.
