NCT00976911
First received: September 14, 2009
Last updated: December 3, 2013

  Purpose

This randomized, open-label, 2-arm study will evaluate the efficacy and safety of Avastin added to chemotherapy versus chemotherapy alone in patients with epithelial ovarian, fallopian tube or primary peritoneal cancer with disease progression within 6 months of platinum therapy. All patients will receive standard chemotherapy with either paclitaxel or topotecan or liposomal doxorubicin. Patients randomized to Arm 2 of the study will receive Avastin (10mg/kg iv 2-weekly or 15mg/kg iv 3-weekly) concomitantly. Anticipated time on study treatment is until disease progression. Patients will then receive standard of care, those in Arm 1 (chemotherapy only) may opt to receive Avastin (15mg/kg iv 3-weekly). Target sample size is 100-500 individuals.
