RATIONALE: AMG 706 may stop the growth of tumor cells by blocking some of the enzymes needed for cell growth and by blocking blood flow to the tumor.

PURPOSE: This phase II trial is studying how well AMG 706 works in treating patients with persistent or recurrent ovarian epithelial cancer, fallopian tube cancer, or primary peritoneal cancer.

Study Type: Interventional
Study Design: Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment
Masking: None (Open Label)
Primary Purpose: Treatment
Official Title: A Phase II Evaluation of AMG 706 (IND # 79,697) in the Treatment of Persistent or Recurrent Epithelial Ovarian, Fallopian Tube, or Primary Peritoneal Cancer

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Objective response [ Time Frame: every 28 days during treatment for up to 5 years ]
  • Progression-free survival (PFS) at 6 months [ Time Frame: every 28 days during treatment then every 3 months for 2 years then every 6 months for 3 years ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Frequency and severity of adverse effects as assessed by CTCAE v3.0 [ Time Frame: every 28 days during treatment for up to 5 years ]
  • Duration of PFS and overall survival [ Time Frame: every 28 days during treatment then every 3 months for 2 years then every 6 months for 3 years ]

Enrollment: 23
Study Start Date: December 2007
Primary Completion Date: July 2013 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: AMG 706
AMG 706 daily
Drug: motesanib diphosphate

Detailed Description:



  • To assess the activity of AMG 706, in terms of the frequency of patients with progression-free survival for at least 6 months after initiating therapy or with an objective tumor response, in patients with persistent or recurrent ovarian epithelial, fallopian tube, or primary peritoneal carcinoma.


  • To determine the frequency and severity of adverse events as assessed by CTCAE v3.0.
  • To characterize the distribution of the progression-free and overall survival of these patients.

OUTLINE: This is a multicenter study.

Patients receive oral AMG 706 once daily on days 1-28. 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.
