This randomized, open-label, 2-arm study will evaluate the efficacy and safety o f Avastin added to chemotherapy versus chemotherapy alone in patients with epith elial ovarian, fallopian tube or primary peritoneal cancer with disease progress ion within 6 months of platinum therapy. All patients will receive standard chem otherapy 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 15 mg/kg iv 3-weekly) concomitantly. Anticipated time on study treatment is until d isease 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 sam ple size is 100-500 individuals.
