Further study details as provided by University of Oklahoma:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • To determine the proportion of patients who are able to receive 6 cycles of intraperitoneal cisplatin chemotherapy. [ Time Frame: 3 years ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • To determine the frequency of dose reductions or dose delays due to neuropathy; To determine the frequency of dose reductions or dose delays due to metabolic, renal, or nausea and vomiting toxicity [ Time Frame: 3 years ]

Enrollment: 21
Study Start Date: January 2006
Study Completion Date: December 2011
Primary Completion Date: December 2011 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: Paclitaxel, Cisplatin IP
There is only one arm for this study and it represents the participants receiving the intraperitoneal chemotherapy
Drug: Paclitaxel, Cisplatin IP
Paclitaxel 135 mg/m2 IV (3-hr infusion) on Day 1, Cisplatin 50 mg/m2 IP on Days 1 and 8, Repeat every 3 weeks for 6 cycles

Detailed Description:
Giving chemotherapy directly into the abdomen is called intraperitoneal (IP) chemotherapy. Because ovarian, fallopian, primary peritoneal and uterine cancer spread in the abdominal cavity, giving chemotherapy drugs by infusion into the abdominal cavity may result in a greater dose of the drugs reaching the tumor cells. Intraperitoneal treatments will be administered through an implantable peritoneal catheter. These catheters are to be inserted into the peritoneal cavity, tunneled through the subcutaneous tissue, and connected to an implantable port, which is placed in the subcutaneous tissue of the anterior, inferior thorax.
