Carboplatin in Treating Patients With Stage IC-IV Ovarian, Fallopian Tube, or Primary Peritoneal Cancer
RATIONALE: Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as carboplatin, work in different ways to stop the growth of tumor cells, either by killing the cells or by stopping them from dividing.
PURPOSE: This randomized phase III trial is comparing different doses of carboplatin to see how well they work in treating patients with stage IC, stage II, stage III, or stage IV ovarian, fallopian tube, or primary peritoneal cancer.

- Compare progression-free survival of patients with stage IC-IV ovarian epithelial, fallopian tube, or primary peritoneal cancer treated with flat-dose vs intra-patient dose-escalated carboplatin as first-line chemotherapy.
- Compare the toxic effects of these regimens in these patients.
- Compare the quality of life of patients treated with these regimens.
- Compare overall clinical response rate and CA 125 response in patients treated with these regimens.
- Compare overall survival of patients treated with these regimens.
OUTLINE: This is a randomized, multicenter study. Patients are randomized to 1 of 2 treatment arms.
- Arm I: Patients receive a flat dose of carboplatin on day 1.
- Arm II: Patients receive intra-patient dose-escalated carboplatin on day 1. In both arms, treatment repeats every 21 days for up to 6 courses in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity.
Quality of life is assessed at baseline, before each treatment course, and then at 2 months post-chemotherapy.
Patients are followed every 2 months for 2 years, every 3 months for 1 year, every 4 months for 1 year, and then every 6 months thereafter.
