This phase II trial studies the effectiveness of paclitaxel in treating patients who have ovarian stromal cancer. Drugs used in chemotherapy use different ways to stop tumor cells from dividing so they stop growing or die.

Condition Intervention Phase
Adult Type Ovarian Granulosa Cell Tumor
Ovarian Gynandroblastoma
Ovarian Sertoli-Leydig Cell Tumor
Ovarian Sex Cord Tumor With Annular Tubules
Ovarian Steroid Cell Tumor
Drug: Paclitaxel
Phase 2

Study Type: Interventional
Study Design: Endpoint Classification: Safety/Efficacy Study
Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment
Masking: Open Label
Primary Purpose: Treatment
Official Title: Phase II Study of Paclitaxel for Ovarian Stromal Tumors as Second-Line Therapy

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Frequency of complete clinical response, assessed using GOG RECIST criteria [ Time Frame: Up to 5 years ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Duration of progression-free survival [ Time Frame: The period from study entry until disease progression, death or date of last contact, assessed up to 5 years ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Overall survival [ Time Frame: The observed length of life from entry into the study to death or the date of last contact, assessed up to 5 years ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Enrollment: 31
Study Start Date: November 2000
Primary Completion Date: July 2013 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: Treatment (paclitaxel)
Patients receive paclitaxel IV over 3 hours on day 1. Treatment continues every 21 days in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity.
Drug: Paclitaxel
Given IV
Other Names:
  • Anzatax
  • Asotax
  • Bristaxol
  • Praxel
  • Taxol
  • Taxol Konzentrat

Detailed Description:


I. To estimate the probability of clinical response and toxicity of paclitaxel as second-line chemotherapy in measurable disease patients with malignant tumors of the ovarian stroma.

II. To evaluate the value of inhibin for predicting response.


Patients receive paclitaxel intravenously (IV) over 3 hours on day 1. Treatment continues every 21 days in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity.

Patients are followed every 3 months for 2 years, then every 6 months for three years, and then annually thereafter.
