ClinicalTrials.gov Identifier: NCT00317434
(Due to unacceptable non-dose limiting toxicities, excessive treatment delays and limited clinical responses.)
The purpose of this study is to determine the maximum tolerated dose of Lapatinib with Carboplatin AUC 6 in patients with platinum sensitive recurrent ovarian or primary peritoneal carcinoma and to determine the nature and degree of toxicity of Lapatinib in combination with carboplatin AUC 6 in this cohort of patients.
