Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: 1
400 mg/m2 loading dose, 250 mg/m2 weekly X 2 Cycles

400 mg/m2 loading dose, 250 mg/m2 weekly X 2 Cycles
Other Name: Erbitux

Detailed Description:
To determine the overall response rate of cetuximab alone in subjects with ovarian or primary peritoneal carcinoma who have persistent or recurrent disease following 1-2 previous regimens of chemotherapy. Potential relationship between response, dose, and the occurence of rash in the treatment of subjects who have stable disease after the initial 6 weeks of treatment, time to progression, and 1 yr survival.

Ages Eligible for Study:   18 Years and older   (Adult, Senior)

Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   No

Inclusion Criteria:

  • subjects must have recurrent or persistent epithelial ovarian or primary peritoneal carcinoma. Histologic confirmation of the original primary tumor is required.
  • EGFR expression must be positive as determined by an outside reference lab
  • Subjects must have had a treatment-free interval following platinum of <12 mos
  • All subjects must have measurable disease at baseline
  • Subjects must have at least one recurrent lesion to be used to assess response
  • Recovery from effect of recent surgery, radiotherapy or chemotherapy

Exclusion Criteria:

  • Subjects with other invasive malignancies (including peritoneal mesotheliomas)
  • Subjects with unstable cardiac disease or MI within 6 mos
  • Subjects with Acute hepatitis
  • Subjects with active or uncontrolled infection
  • A history of prior cetuximab or other therapy which targets the EGFR pathway or prior history of prior chimerized or murine monoclonal antibody therapy
