Enrollment: 129
Study Completion Date: July 2004

Ages Eligible for Study:   18 Years and older
Genders Eligible for Study:   Female
Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   No

Inclusion Criteria:

  • Signed informed consent
  • Willingness to undergo tumor biopsy and disease that is amenable to biopsy (Cohort 1 only)
  • Age >=18 years old
  • Advanced, histologically documented carcinoma of the ovary
  • Measurable disease with at least one lesion that can be accurately measured per RECIST in at least one dimension (longest dimension recorded). Each lesion must be >=20 mm when measured by conventional techniques, including palpation, plain X-ray, CT, and MRI, or >=10 mm when measured by spiral CT.
  • Or, clinically or radiologically detectable disease (e.g., ascites, peritoneal deposits, mesenteric thickening or lesions that do not fulfill RECIST for measurable disease). In addition, the subject must have two consecutive pre-treatment CA 125 levels that are both greater than 2× the institutional upper limit of normal (ULN) and >=40 IU/mL, taken at least 1 week and not more than 3 months apart. The second of the two measurements of CA 125 level should not be drawn within 28 days following the screening biopsy. The later value must be within 2 weeks of starting rhuMAb 2C4 treatment.
  • One or more prior platinum-based chemotherapeutic regimens for the management of primary disease containing carboplatin, cisplatin, or another organoplatinum compound
  • Life expectancy >=12 weeks
  • ECOG performance status 0 or 1
  • Use of an effective means of contraception (for women of childbearing potential)
  • Granulocyte count >=1500/uL, platelet count of >=75,000/uL, and hemoglobin >=9 g/dL (hemoglobin may be supported by transfusion or erythropoietin or other approved hematopoietic growth factors; darbopoeitin [Aranesp] is permitted)
  • Serum bilirubin <=1.5× the ULN and alkaline phosphatase, AST, and ALT <=2.5× ULN (ALT, AST, and alkaline phosphatase <=5× ULN for subjects with liver metastases)
  • Serum creatinine <=1.5× ULN
  • International normalized ratio (INR) <1.5 and activated partial thromboplastin time (aPTT) <1.5 ULN (except for subjects receiving warfarin)

Exclusion Criteria:

  • Prior treatment with experimental anti-cancer agents within 4 weeks prior to Day 1 (the day on which the first rhuMAb 2C4 infusion is administered)
  • Prior treatment with HER pathway inhibitors (e.g., Herceptin [Trastuzumab], Iressa [gefitinib], Tarceva [erlotinib hydrochloride], C225, CI1033, and TAK165)
  • History or clinical evidence of central nervous system or brain metastases
  • Ejection fraction, determined by ECHO, <50%
  • Uncontrolled hypercalcemia (>11.5 mg/dL)
  • Prior exposure to doxorubicin or liposomal doxorubicin >360 mg/m2 , mitoxantrone >120 mg/m2 , or idarubicin >90 mg/m2
  • History of other malignancies within 5 years of Day 1 except for adequately treated carcinoma in situ of the cervix, ductal carcinoma in situ of the breast, or basal or squamous cell skin cancer
  • History of serious systemic disease, including active infection, uncontrolled hypertension (diastolic blood pressure >100 mmHg on two consecutive occasions), unstable angina, congestive heart failure, or myocardial infarction within 6 months prior to Day 1, or unstable symptomatic arrhythmia requiring medication (subjects with chronic atrial arrhythmia, i.e., atrial fibrillation, paroxysmal supraventricular tachycardia, or controlled hypertension are eligible)
  • Ongoing liver disease, including viral or other hepatitis, current alcohol abuse, or cirrhosis
  • Known human immunodeficiency virus infection
  • Pregnancy or lactation
  • Major surgery or significant traumatic injury within 3 weeks prior to Day 1 with the exception of tumor biopsy for the purposes of the study
  • Inability to comply with study and follow-up procedures
  • Any other diseases, metabolic dysfunction, physical examination finding, or clinical laboratory finding giving reasonable suspicion of a disease or condition that contraindicates the use of an investigational drug or that may affect the interpretation of the results or render the subject at high risk from treatment complications
