Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Maximum tolerated dose

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Dose limiting toxicity
  • All over response

Estimated Enrollment: 18
Study Start Date: May 2003
Study Completion Date: May 2005
Primary Completion Date: May 2004 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Detailed Description:

Upon determination of eligibility, patients will be receive:

  • Topotecan + Carboplatin

In order to determine the most appropriate dosing regimen to progress into future phase II trials, two different dosing schedules of topotecan and carboplatin will be utilized (ARM I and ARM II). Patients will be accrued to both treatment arms simultaneously.
