RATIONALE: Drugs used in chemotherapy use different ways to stop tumor cells from dividing so they stop growing or die. Combining more than one drug with peripheral stem cell transplantation may allow the doctor to give higher doses of chemotherapy drugs and kill more tumor cells.
PURPOSE: Phase II trial to study the effectiveness of combination chemotherapy plus peripheral stem cell transplantation in treating patients with stage III or stage IV ovarian epithelial cancer.
|Condition or disease||Intervention/treatment||Phase|
|Ovarian Cancer||Biological: filgrastim Drug: carmustine Drug: cisplatin Drug: melphalan Drug: paclitaxel Procedure: peripheral blood stem cell transplantation Procedure: surgical procedure||Phase 2|
OBJECTIVES: I. Evaluate the complete response rates, event free survival, and overall survival of patients with recently diagnosed stage III or IV ovarian epithelial cancer receiving carmustine plus melphalan followed by consolidation therapy after having undergone surgical debulking. II. Evaluate the therapy related mortality associated with the autotransplant and the consolidation therapy in these patients. III. Evaluate the quality of life in this patient population.
OUTLINE: Patients are stratified by stage (III vs IV) and volume of residual disease (less than 3 cm vs at least 3 cm). Approximately 10-15 days after surgery, patients receive filgrastim (G-CSF) subcutaneously daily until all peripheral blood stem cell (PBSC) collections have been completed. Patients then receive carmustine IV over 2 hours on day -2 and melphalan IV over 20 minutes on day -1. Peripheral blood stem cells are infused 24 hours after melphalan on day 0. Patients receive G-CSF subcutaneously beginning on day 6 and continuing until granulocytes have recovered. Three months after the PBSC infusion, patients receive consolidation therapy with paclitaxel IV over 6 hours on day 2 and cisplatin IV over 24 hours on day 3. Consolidation treatment is repeated every 3 months for a total of 4 courses. Quality of life questionnaires are completed prior to PBSC transplant, before discharge after transplant, before each consolidation treatment, and 3 months after the last consolidation course. Patients are followed at least every 3 months for the first 2 years, and then every 6 months thereafter.
PROJECTED ACCRUAL: An estimated 32 patients will be accrued into this study over 3-4 years.
