RATIONALE: Drugs used in chemotherapy use different ways to stop tumor cells from dividing so they stop growing or die.
PURPOSE: Phase I trial to study the effectiveness of taurolidine in treating patients who have recurrent ovarian epithelial cancer, fallopian tube cancer, or primary peritoneal cancer.
|Condition or disease||Intervention/treatment||Phase|
|Fallopian Tube Cancer Ovarian Cancer Primary Peritoneal Cavity Cancer||Drug: chemotherapy Drug: taurolidine||Phase 1|
OBJECTIVES: I. Determine the maximum tolerated dose and recommended phase II dose of taurolidine after positive second-look surgery in patients with recurrent ovarian, fallopian tube, or primary peritoneal cancer. II. Determine the dose-limiting toxicity and safety of this drug in these patients.
OUTLINE: This is a dose-escalation study. Patients receive taurolidine intraperitoneally weekly on weeks 1-3 and 7-9 in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity. Cohorts of 1-6 patients receive escalating doses of taurolidine until the maximum tolerated dose (MTD) is determined. The MTD is defined as the dose preceding that at which at least 2 of 6 patients experience dose-limiting toxicity. Patients are followed every 3 weeks for 9 weeks.
PROJECTED ACCRUAL: A maximum of 15 patients will be accrued for this study within 12-18 months.
