Birinapant for Advanced Ovarian, Fallopian Tube, and Peritoneal Cancer
- Birinapant is an experimental cancer treatment drug. It removes certain proteins in cells, which helps to kill the cells. The drug is more likely to cause the death of cancer cells than normal cells because cancer cells have more of these proteins. Studies suggest that it can help treat ovarian cancer, primary peritoneal cancer, or fallopian tube cancer. Researchers want to see how well Birinapant works against the three types of cancer.
- To test the effectiveness of Birinapant for ovarian, primary peritoneal, or fallopian tube cancer.
- Women at least 18 years of age who have ovarian, primary peritoneal, or fallopian tube cancer that has not responded to standard treatment.
- Participants will be screened with a physical exam and medical history. Blood and urine samples will also be collected. Tumor tissue samples may be collected before treatment. Imaging studies will also be performed.
- Participants will have an infusion of Birinapant once per week for 3 weeks in a row, followed by a break for a week on the fourth week. This 4-week schedule is one cycle of treatment.
- Treatment will be monitored with frequent blood tests and imaging studies.
- Another optional tumor biopsy will be collected 6 weeks after the start of treatment.
- Treatment will continue as long as the cancer does not grow and the side effects are not severe.
