Evaluation of Paclitaxel (Taxol, NSC #673089), Carboplatin (Paraplatin, NSC #241240), and BSI-201 (NSC #746045, IND #71,677) in the Treatment of Advanced, Persistent, or Recurrent Uterine Carcinosarcoma
To estimate the antitumor activity of paclitaxel, carboplatin, plus BSI-201 in patients with recurrent or advanced uterine carcinosarcomas.
Based on data generated by BiPar/Sanofi, it is concluded that iniparib does not possess characteristics typical of the PARP inhibitor class. The exact mechanism has not yet been fully elucidated, however based on experiments on tumor cells performed in the laboratory, iniparib is a novel investigational anti-cancer agent that induces gamma-H2AX (a marker of DNA damage) in tumor cell lines, induces cell cycle arrest in the G2/M phase in tumor cell lines, and potentiates the cell cycle effects of DNA damaging modalities in tumor cell lines. Investigations into potential targets of iniparib and its metabolites are ongoing.

Participants will be administered pacitaxel, carboplatin and BSI-201 (Iniparib) in 21 day treatment cycles. Treatment will continue until disease progression or adverse effects prohibit further therapy.
Paclitaxel will be administered IV over 3 hours on Day 1 every 21 days.Drug: carboplatin
Carboplatin will be administered intravenously (IV) over 30 minutes on day 1 after pacitaxel administration, every 21 days.Drug: BSI-201 (Iniparib)
BSI-201 will be administered IV over one hour twice weekly beginning on day 1 (doses of BSI-201 must be separated by at least 2 days).
