  Purpose

RATIONALE: Drugs used in chemotherapy use different ways to stop tumor cells from dividing so they stop growing or die.

PURPOSE: Phase II trial to study the effectiveness of capecitabine in treating patients who have recurrent ovarian epithelial or primary peritoneal cavity cancer.

Study Start Date: March 2001
Primary Completion Date: July 2005 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Detailed Description:

OBJECTIVES:

  • Determine the antitumor activity of capecitabine in patients with recurrent, platinum-sensitive ovarian epithelial or primary peritoneal cavity cancer.
  • Determine the nature and degree of toxicity of this drug in this patient population.

OUTLINE: This is a multicenter study.

Patients receive oral capecitabine twice daily for 14 days. Courses repeat every 21 days 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: A total of 22-60 patients will be accrued for this study within 6-12 months.
