Brief Summary:
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the safety and efficacy of CT-2103 (poly(L)glutamate-paclitaxel) in combination with carboplatin for the treatment of patients with Stage III or IV ovarian or primary peritoneal cancer.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Ovarian Neoplasm Drug: CT-2103 (poly(L)glutamate-paclitaxel) Drug: carboplatin Phase 2

Detailed Description:
CT-2103 is a pharmaceutical that links paclitaxel, the active ingredient in Taxol(R), to a biodegradable polyglutamate polymer. The objective of this trial is to evaluate the toxicity, estimate the response rate, progression-free survival and overall survival in patients with newly diagnosed stage III or IV ovarian or primary peritoneal carcinoma treated with CT-2103 in combination with carboplatin.

Study Type : Interventional  (Clinical Trial)
Actual Enrollment : 82 participants
Allocation: Non-Randomized
Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment
Masking: None (Open Label)
