Oxaliplatin in Treating Patients With Persistent or Recurrent Endometrial Cancer
RATIONALE: Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as oxaliplatin, work in different ways to stop tumor cells from dividing so they stop growing or die.
PURPOSE: Phase II trial to study the effectiveness of oxaliplatin in treating patients who have persistent or recurrent endometrial cancer.
|Study Design:||Masking: Open Label
Primary Purpose: Treatment
|Official Title:||Phase II Evaluation of Oxaliplatin in the Treatment of Recurrent or Persistent Endometrial Carcinoma|
|Study Start Date:||November 1999|
|Study Completion Date:||September 2007|
- Determine the antitumor activity of oxaliplatin in terms of response rate in patients with persistent or recurrent endometrial carcinoma that is refractory to curative or established therapy.
- Determine the nature and degree of toxicity of this treatment regimen in these patients.
OUTLINE: This is a multicenter study.
Patients receive oxaliplatin IV over 2 hours on day 1. Treatment repeats every 3 weeks in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity.
Patients are followed every 3 months for 2 years and then every 6 months for 3 years.
PROJECTED ACCRUAL: Approximately 19-51 patients will be accrued for this study.
