UCN-01 and Topotecan in Treating Patients With Recurrent, Persistent, or Progressive Advanced Ovarian Epithelial, Primary Peritoneal, or Fallopian Tube Cancer
RATIONALE: Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as topotecan, work in different ways to stop tumor cells from dividing so they stop growing or die. UCN-01 may stop the growth of tumor cells by blocking the enzymes necessary for their growth. Combining UCN-01 with topotecan may kill more tumor cells.
PURPOSE: Phase II trial to study the effectiveness of combining UCN-01 with topotecan in treating patients who have recurrent, persistent, or progressive advanced ovarian epithelial, primary peritoneal, or fallopian tube cancer.
Fallopian Tube Cancer
Primary Peritoneal Cavity Cancer
Drug: topotecan hydrochloride
|Study Design:||Masking: Open Label
Primary Purpose: Treatment
|Official Title:||A Phase II Study of UCN-01 in Combination With Topotecan in Patients With Advanced Ovarian Cancer|
|Study Start Date:||January 2004|
- Determine the antitumor activity of UCN-01 and topotecan, in terms of complete and partial objective response rates, in patients with recurrent, persistent, or progressive advanced ovarian epithelial, primary peritoneal, or fallopian tube cancer.
- Determine the antitumor activity of this regimen, in terms of stable disease rates and duration of response, in these patients.
- Determine the progression-free, median, and overall survival of patients treated with this regimen.
- Determine the safety and tolerability of this regimen in these patients.
- Determine the relationship between clinical and pharmacodynamic effects of this regimen in these patients.
OUTLINE: This is a multicenter study.
Patients receive UCN-01 IV over 3 hours on day 1 and topotecan IV over 30 minutes on days 1-5. Treatment repeats every 21 days for up to 6 courses in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity.
PROJECTED ACCRUAL: A total of 19-33 patients will be accrued for this study within 5-11 months.
