Brief Summary:

RATIONALE: Drugs used in chemotherapy use different ways to stop tumor cells from dividing so they stop growing or die.

PURPOSE: Phase II trial to study the effectiveness of capecitabine in treating patients who have recurrent ovarian, fallopian tube, or primary peritoneal cancer.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Fallopian Tube Cancer Ovarian Cancer Primary Peritoneal Cavity Cancer Drug: capecitabine Phase 2

Detailed Description:

OBJECTIVES: I. Determine the response rate and time to treatment failure in patients with recurrent ovarian epithelial, fallopian tube, or primary peritoneal carcinoma treated with oral capecitabine. II. Determine the tolerability and safety of this regimen in these patients.

OUTLINE: Patients receive oral capecitabine twice daily for 14 days. Treatment continues every 3 weeks in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity.

PROJECTED ACCRUAL: A total of 14-35 patients will be accrued for this study.
