Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Number of Participants With Dose-limiting Toxicity (DLT) [ Time Frame: Days 1 through 21 (Cycle 1) ]
    DLT is defined as any of the following: Common Terminology Criteria (CTC), Version 3, Grade(Gr) 4 neutropenia (absolute neutrophil count <500 cells/mm^3) for at least 5 days or febrile neutropenia; Gr 4 thrombocytopenia (<25,000 cells/mm^3 or bleeding needing platelet transfusion); Gr 3 or 4 nausea, vomiting, or diarrhea, despite medical intervention; any other drug-related Gr 3 or 4 nonhematologic toxicity, except Gr 3 injection site reaction, fatigue/asthenia, transient arthralgia/myalgia, or transient electrolytes abnormal. Gr 1=Mild; Gr 2=Moderate; Gr 3=Severe; Gr 4=Life-threatening.

  • Maximum Tolerated Dose (MTD) and Recommended Phase 2 Dose of Carboplatin in Combination With Ixabepilone, 32 mg/m^2 [ Time Frame: Days 1 through 21 (Cycle 1) ]
    The MTD was defined as the highest dose evaluated for which less than one sixth of patients experience a DLT in Cycle 1. The recommended phase 2 dose is the MTD defined in Cycle 1, with consideration given to chronic cumulative toxicity occurring at later cycles.


Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Number of Participants With Death as Outcome, Treatment-related Serious Adverse Events (SAEs), SAEs, Adverse Events (AEs), and Treatment-related AEs Leading to Discontinuation [ Time Frame: Days 1 through 21 (Cycle 1) ]
    An SAE is any untoward medical event that at any dose: results in death, persistent or significant disability/incapacity, or drug dependency or abuse; is life-threatening, an important medical event, or a congenital anomaly/birth defect; or requires inpatient hospitalization or prolongs existing hospitalization. An AE is any new untoward medical occurrence or worsening of a preexisting medical condition that does not necessarily have a causal relationship with this treatment. Treatment-related comprises certainly, probably, and possibly related and of unknown relationship to study drug.

  • Number of Participants With Grade 3 or Greater Treatment-related AEs [ Time Frame: Days 1 through 21 (Cycle 1) ]
    An AE is defined as any new untoward medical occurrence or worsening of a preexisting medical condition that does not necessarily have a causal relationship with treatment. AEs graded according to CTC, Version 3.0. Gr 1=Mild; Gr 2=Moderate; Gr 3=Severe; Gr 4=Life-threatening. Treatment-related comprises certainly, probably, and possibly related and of unknown relationship to study drug.

  • Number of Participants With Abnormalities in Hematology Laboratory Values by Worst CTC Grade [ Time Frame: At screening and Days 8 and 15 of Cycle 1 (21 days) ]

    LLN=lower level of normal; ULN=upper level of normal. Hemoglobin (g/dL; LLN=11.3; ULN=14.9); leukocytes (*10^3 c/uL; LLN=4.1; ULN=6.1); lymphocytes (*10^3 c/uL); neutrophils (absolute), neutrophils + bands (*10^3 c/uL); platelet count (*10^9 c/L; LLN=131; ULN=365)

    Appendix 7.1.2


  • Number of Participants With Abnormalities in Serum Chemistry Laboratory Values by Worst CTC Grade [ Time Frame: At screening and Days 8 and 15 of Cycle 1 (21 days) ]
    ULN=upper limit of normal; LLN=lower limit of normal. Alkaline phosphatase=ALP(LLN=115; ULN=359) (U/L); alanine aminotransferase=ALT (LLN=8; ULN=42)(U/L); aspartate aminotransferase=AST (LLN=13; ULN=33) (U/L); albumin (LLN=3.7; ULN=5.2)(g/dL); bilirubin (LLN=0.3; ULN=1.2)(mg/dL); calcium (LLN=8.7; ULN=10.3)(mg/dL); creatinine (LLN=0.6; ULN=1.1)(mg/dL); potassium (LLN=3.6; ULN=4.9) (mEq/L); sodium (LLN=138; ULN=146) (mEq/L)

  • Number of Participants With Abnormalities in Urine Testing Results by Worst CTC Grade [ Time Frame: At screening and Days 8 and 15 of Cycle 1 (21 days) ]
    Toxicities graded according to CTC, Version 3. Protein Gr 1: <1.0 g/24 hrs (1+); Gr 2: 1.0 to 3.4 g/24 hrs (2+ to 3+ ); Gr 3: >=3.5 g/24 hrs (4+); Gr 4: Nephrotic syndrome. Note: + = qualitative measure of urine chemistry.

  • Number of Participants With Abnormalities in Blood Pressure and Heart Rate [ Time Frame: At screening and Day 1 of Cycle 1 (21 days) and Day 1 of Cycle 2 (Study day 22) ]
    Blood pressure and heart rate obtained before ixabepilone infusion, every 1 hour during and at the end of ixabepilone infusion, and at the end of carboplatin infusion in Cycle 1. For subsequent cycles, vital signs obtained before ixabepilone infusion, at the end of ixabepilone infusion, and at the end of carboplatin infusion. Any new or worsening clinically significant changes since last entry were recorded as appropriate AE or SAE.

  • Number of Participants With Abnormalities in Weight and Eastern Cooperative Oncology Group (ECOG) Performance Status [ Time Frame: At screening of Cycle 1 (21 days) and Day 1 of Cycle 2 (Study day 22) ]
    Participants weighed same day as serum chemistry tests. Body surface area recalculated only if body weight changes >10%. ECOG criteria used to assess disease progression and affects on daily living abilities and to determine appropriate treatment and prognosis. Grade 1=Restricted physical activity but ambulatory and capable of light work; Grade 2=Ambulatory, capable of self care, but unable to carry out any work activities; Grade 3=Capable of limited self care, confined to bed or chair 50% or more of waking hours; Grade 4=Completely disabled, totally confined to bed or chair.

  • Number of Participants at Each Response Evaluation Criteria in Solid Tumors (RECIST) Assessment [ Time Frame: Days 1 through 21 (Cycle 1) ]
    Tumor response was assessed using the RECIST assessment: Complete response (CR)=Disappearance of all clinical and radiologic evidence of target lesions; Partial response (PR)=At least 30% reduction in the sum of the longest diameters of all target lesions; Progressive disease (PD)=At least 20% increase in the sum of the longest diameters of all target lesions; Stable disease (SD)=Neither PR nor PD criteria were met.

  • Maximum Observed Plasma Concentration of Ixabepilone [ Time Frame: Days 1 to 8 of Cycle 1 (21 days) ]
  • Time of Maximum Observed Plasma Concentration of Ixabepilone [ Time Frame: Days 1 to 8 of Cycle 1 (21 days) ]
