  Purpose
This phase II trial is studying the side effects and how well temsirolimus works in treating patients with refractory or recurrent ovarian epithelial cancer, fallopian tube cancer, or primary peritoneal cancer. Temsirolimus may stop the growth of tumor cells by blocking some of the enzymes needed for cell growth.

Fallopian Tube Cancer Primary Peritoneal Cavity Cancer Recurrent Ovarian Epithelial Cancer Drug: temsirolimus Phase 2

Study Type: Interventional
Study Design: Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment
Masking: None (Open Label)
Primary Purpose: Treatment
Official Title: A Phase II Evaluation of CCI-779 (Temsirolimus, NCI-Supplied Agent, NSC #683864, IND #61010) in the Treatment of Persistent or Recurrent Epithelial Ovarian, Fallopian Tube or Primary Peritoneal Carcinoma

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • 6 Month Progression-free Survival (PFS) [ Time Frame: 6 months ]
    Number of participants who survived progression-free for more than 6 months.

  • Objective Tumor Response Based on the Gynecologic Oncology Group (GOG) Response Evaluation Criteria in Solid Tumors (RECIST) Criteria [ Time Frame: Up to 5 years ]
    Number of participants who experienced an objective tumor response up to 5 years. Per RECIST version 1.0 criteria: each target lesion must be >= 20 mm when measured by conventional techniques, including palpation, plain x-ray, CT, and MRI, or >= 10 mm when measured by spiral CT. Complete Response is a disappearance of all target and non-target lesions. Partial Response is at least a 30% decrease in the sum of longest dimensions (LD) of all target measurable lesions, taking as reference the baseline sum of LD. Increasing Disease is at least a 20% increase in the sum of LD of target lesions, taking as references the smallest sum LD or the appearance of new lesions.

  • Frequency and Severity of Adverse Events as Assessed by the Common Terminology Criteria for Adverse Events Version 3.0 (CTCAE v3.0) [ Time Frame: Up to 5 years ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Duration of PFS [ Time Frame: Up to 6 months ]
    Characterized with Kaplan-Meier plots and estimates of the median time until death or progression.

  • Duration of Overall Survival [ Time Frame: Up to 5 years ]
    Characterized with Kaplan-Meier plots and estimates of the median time until death or progression.


Other Outcome Measures:
  • Reason Off Study Therapy [ Time Frame: from study entry until end of study treatment ]
  • Patient Vital Status [ Time Frame: Study entry up to 2 years ]
    Patients alive or dead after 24 months from time of study entry


Enrollment: 60

Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: Treatment (temsirolimus)
Patients receive temsirolimus IV over 30 minutes on days 1, 8, 15, and 22. Courses repeat every 28 days in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity.
Drug: temsirolimus
Given IV
Other Names:
  • CCI-779
  • cell cycle inhibitor 779
  • Torisel

Detailed Description:

OBJECTIVES: Primary I. Determine the 6-month progression-free survival (PFS) or objective tumor response in patients with refractory or recurrent ovarian epithelial, fallopian tube, or primary peritoneal cavity cancer treated with temsirolimus.

II. Determine the toxicity of this drug in these patients.

Secondary I. Determine the duration of PFS and overall survival of these patients.

OUTLINE: This is a nonrandomized, multicenter study.

Patients receive temsirolimus IV over 30 minutes on days 1, 8, 15, and 22. Courses repeat every 28 days in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity.

After completion of study treatment, patients are followed every 3 months for 2 years and then every 6 months for 3 years.

PROJECTED ACCRUAL: A total of 52 patients will be accrued for this study.
