ClinicalTrials.gov Identifier: NCT00826891
Verified January 2009 by Chinese Anti-Cancer Association. Recruitment status was: Not yet recruiting
This is a single arm, open-label study in women from China who have Advanced (stage IVB) Recurrent or Persistent cervical cancer to ⑴assess the response rate (i.e., CR + PR) of Cisplatin combined with Topotecan in treatment of advanced (stage IVB) recurrent or persistent Cervical cancer; ⑵assess the toxicities of CT regimen in treatment of cervical cancer. Prior to treatment, written informed consent should be obtained from all patients. Eligible patients will be assigned to CT regimen. The CT regimen is topotecan 0.75 mg/m2 IV during 30minutes days 1, 2, and 3; followed by cisplatin 50 mg/m2 IV on day1, repeated every 21 days. The study will consist of two phases: the safety run-in phase and study phase.
Patients must have specific minimum neutrophil and platelet counts before administration of Hycamtin. The dose of Hycamtin is 0.75 mg/m2 by intravenous infusion over 30 minutes daily on days 1, 2, and 3; followed by cisplatin 50 mg/m2 by intravenous infusion on day 1 repeated every 21 days (a 21-day course).
Dosage adjustments for subsequent courses of Hycamtin in combination with cisplatin are specific for each drug.
