Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Progression-Free Survival at 6 Months (PFS-6) [ Time Frame: First dose to 6 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Data presented are the percentage of participants without progressive disease (PD) or death from any cause at 6 month after first dose. PD was determined using Response Evaluation Criteria In Solid Tumors (RECIST) criteria version 1.0. PD is ≥20% increase in sum of longest diameter of target lesions and/or unequivocal progression of non-target lesion and/or new lesion.

  • Objective Response Rate (ORR) [ Time Frame: First dose to date of objective progressive disease /death or new anti-cancer therapy up to 34.6 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Objective response is confirmed complete response (CR) + partial response (PR), as classified by the investigators according to the Response Evaluation Criteria In Solid Tumors (RECIST) criteria version 1.0. CR is disappearance of all target and non-target lesions; PR is ≥30% decrease in sum of longest diameter of target lesions without new lesion and progression of non-target lesion. ORR is calculated as a total number of participants with CR or PR from the start of study treatment until disease progression/recurrence or the start of new therapeutic anticancer treatment, whichever occurred first, divided by the total number of participants treated, then multiplied by 100.


Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Progression-Free Survival (PFS) [ Time Frame: First dose to measured progressive disease or death due to any cause up to 34.6 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Defined as the time from date of first dose to the first observation of progression of disease (PD) or death due to any cause. PD was determined using Response Evaluation Criteria In Solid Tumors (RECIST) criteria version 1.0. PD is ≥20% increase in sum of longest diameter of target lesions and/or unequivocal progression of non-target lesion and/or new lesion. For participants who had no PD or death or had started new therapeutic anticancer treatment, PFS was censored at their last radiographic tumor assessment.

  • Overall Survival at 1 Year (OS-1) [ Time Frame: First dose to 12 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Data presented are the percentage of participants surviving at least 12 months after first dose based on Kaplan Meier Method.

  • Overall Survival (OS) [ Time Frame: First dose to death due to any cause up to 43.9 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Overall survival is defined as the time from first dose to the date of death due to any cause. For participants who were alive or were lost to follow-up, overall survival was censored on the last date the participant was known to be alive.

  • Summary Listing of Participants Reporting Drug-Related Treatment-Emergent Adverse Events [ Time Frame: First dose to 30 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
    Data presented are the number of participants who experienced treatment-emergent adverse events (TEAE), serious adverse events (SAE), Grade 3 or 4 TEAE, or adverse events (AE) leading to discontinuation of treatment that were considered to be related to ramucirumab. A summary of SAEs and other nonserious AEs, regardless of causality, is located in the Reported Adverse Events section.

Other Name: IMC-1121B

Detailed Description:

Current chemotherapies used to treat ovarian cancer participants include doxorubicin, topotecan, and paclitaxel, to mention a few. Doxorubicin was studied in ovarian cancer participants that were refractory to paclitaxel and platinum-based chemotherapy agents. Inhibition of angiogenesis is considered a promising approach to the treatment of cancer. Vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) is an important regulator of angiogenesis and is likely an important therapeutic target in persistent or recurrent epithelial ovarian, fallopian tube, or primary peritoneal carcinoma. VEGF is overexpressed in ovarian tissue and may be the most important single tumor angiogenic factor. Phase 1 studies currently nearing completion with ramucirumab have demonstrated safety and tolerability at clinically relevant doses, with preliminary evidence of clinical efficacy in ovarian cancer participants. Therefore, ImClone Systems plans to conduct a Phase 2 trial to assess the safety and efficacy of ramucirumab in participants with platinum-refractory persistent or recurrent epithelial ovarian, fallopian tube, or primary peritoneal carcinoma.

Criteria

Inclusion Criteria:

Each participant must meet the following criteria to be enrolled in this study:

  1. The participant has recurrent or persistent epithelial ovarian, fallopian tube, or primary peritoneal carcinoma. Histologic documentation of the original primary tumor is required via a pathology report
  2. The participant has at least one unidimensional-measurable target lesion [≥ 2 centimeter (cm) with conventional techniques, or ≥ 1 cm by spiral computed tomography (CT) or magnetic resonance imaging (MRI)], as defined by Response Evaluation Criteria in Solid Tumors (RECIST). Tumors within a previously irradiated field will be designated as "nontarget" lesions unless progression is documented or a biopsy is obtained to confirm persistence at least 90 days following completion of radiation therapy
  3. The participant has recovered to Grade ≤ 1 by the National Cancer Institute Common Terminology Criteria for Adverse Events, Version 3.0 (NCI-CTCAE v3.0) from the effects of recent surgery, radiotherapy, chemotherapy, hormonal therapy, or other targeted therapies for ovarian cancer, with the exception of alopecia or peripheral neuropathy (which must have resolved to Grade ≤ 2). Any other prior therapy directed at the malignant tumor must be discontinued at least three weeks prior to the first dose of study medication, or hormonal therapy discontinued at least one week prior to the first dose of study medication. Continuation of hormone replacement therapy is permitted
  4. The participant has completed at least one platinum-based chemotherapeutic regimen for management of primary disease, and must have at least one of the following: a platinum-free interval of < 12 months after the final dose of primary platinum-based therapy, progression during platinum-based therapy, or persistent disease after platinum-based therapy
  5. The participant has an Eastern Cooperative Oncology Group Performance Status (ECOG PS) of 0-1 at study entry
  6. The participant has adequate hematological functions [absolute neutrophil count (ANC) ≥ 1200 cells/microliter (uL), hemoglobin ≥ 9 grams/deciliter (g/dL), and platelets ≥ 100,000 cells/uL]
  7. The participant has adequate hepatic function [bilirubin ≤ 1.5 times the upper limit of normal (ULN); aspartate transaminase (AST) and/or alanine transaminase (ALT) ≤ 3.0 times ULN, or ≤ 5.0 times ULN if the transaminase elevation is due to liver metastases]

  9. The participant's urinary protein is ≤ 1+ on dipstick or routine urinalysis (UA). If urine dipstick or routine analysis indicated ≥ 2+ proteinuria, then a 24-hour urine must be collected and must demonstrate < 1000 milligrams (mg) of protein in 24 hours to allow participation in the study
  10. The participant has adequate coagulation function, as defined by international normalized ratio (INR) ≤ 1.5 and a partial thromboplastin time (PTT) ≤ 1.5 X ULN if not receiving anticoagulation therapy. Participants on full-dose anticoagulation must be on a stable dose of oral anticoagulant or low molecular weight heparin, and if on warfarin must have therapeutic INR and have no active bleeding (defined as within 14 days of first dose of study medication) or pathological condition that carries a high risk of bleeding (example, tumor involving major vessels or known varices)
  11. For participants who have received anthracycline therapy, the left ventricular ejection fraction (LVEF) must be within normal institutional range by a pretreatment echocardiogram or multigated acquisition (MUGA) scan
  12. If sexually active, the participant is post-menopausal, surgically sterile, or using effective contraception in the opinion of the investigator

[Prior radiation for localized cancer (for example, of the breast, head and neck, or skin) is permitted, provided that it was completed > 3 years prior to the first dose of study medication, and the participant remains free of recurrent or metastatic disease.]
  5. The participant has received prior chemotherapy for any abdominal or pelvic tumor, other than for the treatment of ovarian, fallopian tube, or primary peritoneal cancer < 3 years prior to the first dose of study medication. Prior adjuvant chemotherapy for localized breast cancer is permitted, provided that it was completed >3 years prior to the first dose of study medication, and that the participant remains free of recurrent or metastatic disease
