Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: A
Standard of care chemotherapy plus experiment intervention (PF-3512676)
Drug: PF-3512676 + Paclitaxel + Carboplatin
  • PF-3512676: 0.2 mg/kg subcutaneously Days 8 and 15 of each 21 day cycle x 6 cycles then weekly as maintenance until disease progression or unacceptable toxicity.
  • Paclitaxel: 200 mg/m2 intravenously Day 1 of each 21 day cycle x 6 cycles.
  • Carboplatin: AUC 6 intravenously Day 1 of each 21 days cycle x 6 cycles.
Other Name: Taxol; Paraplatin
Active Comparator: B
Standard of care chemotherapy
Drug: Paclitaxel + Carboplatin
  • Paclitaxel: 200 mg/m2 intravenously Day 1 of each 21 day cycle x 6 cycles.
  • Carboplatin: AUC 6 intravenously Day 1 of each 21 days cycle x 6 cycles.
Other Name: Taxol; Paraplatin

Detailed Description:
PF-3512676 dosing was stopped 20 June 2007 in response to DSMC recommendation to close the trial, citing lack of efficacy concerns as the primary reason with a safety issue (sepsis) also contributing to the decision. Subjects were allowed to complete standard of care treatment/survival follow-up. Data collection was completed on 17 July 2008.
