Brief Summary:

RATIONALE: Estrogen can stimulate the growth of ovarian cancer cells. Hormone therapy using arzoxifene hydrochloride may fight ovarian or peritoneal cancer by blocking the use of estrogen by the tumor cells.

PURPOSE: This phase II trial is studying how well arzoxifene hydrochloride works in treating women with metastatic refractory ovarian cancer or primary peritoneal cancer.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Ovarian Cancer Primary Peritoneal Cavity Cancer Drug: arzoxifene hydrochloride Phase 2

Detailed Description:

OBJECTIVES: I. Evaluate response rate to arzoxifene hydrochloride in patients with metastatic refractory ovarian epithelial cancer or primary peritoneal cancer. II. Determine the time to progressive disease, time to treatment failure, response duration, and survival of these patients. III. Assess the safety of this treatment in these patients. IV. Measure changes in serum estradiol, follicle stimulating hormone, luteinizing hormone, and sex hormone binding globulin during this treatment in these patients.

OUTLINE: Patients receive oral arzoxifene hydrochloride daily at a fixed dose. Treatment continues in the absence of unacceptable toxicity or disease progression.
