Primary Outcome Measures:
  • To assess the anti-tumor activity, as measured by tumor response rate (proportion of patients with complete or partial response, of 500 mg/m2 vs. 900 mg/m2 of pemetrexed therapy administered every 21 days

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Time to response
  • Duration of response
  • Time to objective progressive disease (TtPD)
  • Time to treatment failure (TtTF)
  • Objective PFS
  • OS
  • To assess safety and toxicity profile of two doses of pemetrexed in patients with ovarian cancer

Estimated Enrollment: 100
Study Start Date: June 2005
