Laboratory Study in Predicting Tumor Response to Chemotherapy in Patients With Ovarian Cancer, Fallopian Tube Cancer, or Primary Peritoneal Cancer
Recruitment status was Recruiting
RATIONALE: Collecting samples of tissue from patients with cancer to study in the laboratory may help doctors predict how well patients will respond to treatment with certain chemotherapy drugs and plan the best treatment.
PURPOSE: This laboratory study is looking at tumor tissue samples to predict response to chemotherapy in patients with ovarian cancer, fallopian tube cancer, or primary peritoneal cancer.
Fallopian Tube Cancer
Primary Peritoneal Cavity Cancer
Other: flow cytometry
Other: immunohistochemistry staining method
|Official Title:||Application of the Microculture Kinetic (MiCK) Assay for Apoptosis to Testing Drug Sensitivity of Ovarian, Fallopian and Primary Peritoneal Adenocarcinomas|
- Correlation of a statistically significant discriminator of sensitivity with complete response rate [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
|Study Start Date:||March 2006|
- Evaluate the ability of the microculture kinetic (MiCK) assay to predict the outcome of patients with ovarian, fallopian tube, or primary peritoneal adenocarcinoma treated with first-line chemotherapy.
- Evaluate the ability of the MiCK assay to guide chemotherapy in a third-line, refractory treatment setting (exclusive of anti-vascular endothelial growth factor) in these patients.
OUTLINE: Patients are stratified according to prior chemotherapy (no [stratum I] vs yes [stratum II]).
Tumor tissue and/or effusion specimens are collected at baseline. Specimens are examined by the microculture kinetic (MiCK) assay and immunocytochemical or flow cytometry assay.
MiCK assay results do not influence treatment for stratum I patients. Stratum II patients may receive treatment based on MiCK assay results for tumor sensitivity to specific chemotherapy drugs.
PROJECTED ACCRUAL: A total of 60 patients will be accrued for this study.
