  Purpose
This phase II trial studies how well temsirolimus, carboplatin, and paclitaxel as first-line therapy works in treating patients with newly diagnosed stage III-IV clear cell ovarian cancer. Temsirolimus may stop the growth of tumor cells by blocking some of the enzymes needed for cell growth. Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as carboplatin and paclitaxel, work in different ways to stop the growth of tumor cells, either by killing the cells or by stopping them from dividing. Giving temsirolimus with combination chemotherapy may be an effective treatment for ovarian cancer.

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Proportion of Patients Who Are Alive and Progression-free for at Least 12 Months After Study Entry in Patients With Newly Diagnosed Stage III or IV Clear Cell Ovarian Cancer in the Following Populations: Patients in the U.S./Worldwide and Japan [ Time Frame: Tumor scans were done every other cycle for the first 6 months; then every 3 months x2; then every 6 months thereafter; and at any other time if clinically indicated or signs suggestive of progressive disease or rising levels; for up to 5 years. ]
    Progression of target lesions (TL) was a >=20% increase in the sum of the diameters of TL, taking as reference the smallest sum on study (including the baseline sum if that is the smallest on study). In addition to the relative increase of 20%, the sum must demonstrate an absolute increase >=5 mm. Progression of non-target lesions (NTL) as defined as appearance of >=1 new lesions or unequivocal progression of existing NTL. Unequivocal progression should not normally trump target lesion status; it must be representative of overall disease status change, not a single lesion increase. Clear progression of only NTL is exceptional, but the opinion of the treating physician should prevail in such circumstances, and the progression status should be later confirmed by a review panel (or Principal Investigator). Progression of TL, unequivocal progression of NTL, or new lesions constitutes progression. This description is abbreviated; see the RECIST 1.1 manuscript for further details.

  • Compare Progression-free Survival in Newly Diagnosed Stage III or IV Clear Cell Ovarian Cancer Patients in Patients in the U.S. and Worldwide (Outside of Japan) Versus Patients in Japan. [ Time Frame: Tumor scans were done every other cycle for the first 6 months;then every 3 mnths x2;then every 6 mnths thereafter; and at any other time if clinically indicated based on symptoms or physical signs suggesting progressive dx or rising serum tumor marker le ]
    Progression-free survival (PFS) was defined s the period from study entry until disease progression, death, or the last date of contact. Progression was based on Response Evaluation Criteria In Solid Tumors (RECIST) 1.1. Outcome measure data not reported because protocol stated "If the combination is declared active (i.e. HO is rejected) in one or both of the populations, the two populations will be compared with respect to PFS using a logrank test stratified by optimal/suboptimal disease status." The combination was not declared active in either population.

  • Frequency and Severity of Toxicity [ Time Frame: Each cycle while on treatment ]
    Grade 3 or higher adverse events were graded by CTC AE v4


Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Progression-free Survival [ Time Frame: Tumor scans were done every other cycle for the first 6 months; then every 3 months x 2; then every 6 mths thereafter; and at any other time if clinically indicated based on symptoms or physical signs suggestive of progressive disease or rising tumor mark ]
    Progression-free survival (PFS) was defined as the period from study entry until disease progression, death, or the last date of contact. Progression was based on RECIST 1.1

  • Overall Survival [ Time Frame: Every cycle during treatment, then every 3 months for the first 2 years, then every six months for the next three years and then annually for the next 5 years. ]
    Overall survival is defined as the duration of time from study entry to time of death or the date of last contact.

  • Objective Tumor Response [ Time Frame: Every other cycle for first 6 months; then every 3 months for two years; then every six months for the next three years; and at any other time if clinically indicated based on symptoms or physical signs suggestive of progressive disease or rising serum tu ]
    Complete and Partial Tumor Response by RECIST 1.1. RECIST1.1 is a multi-page paper, and response is defined in the protocol across multiple pages, so it is not practical to define response here.

Detailed Description:

PRIMARY OBJECTIVES:

I. To assess the activity of the study regimen as measured by the proportion of patients who are alive and progression-free for at least 12 months after study entry in patients with newly diagnosed stage III or IV clear cell ovarian cancer in the following populations: patients in the United States (U.S.) and worldwide (outside of Japan) and patients in Japan.

II. To compare progression-free survival in newly diagnosed stage III or IV clear cell ovarian cancer patients in patients in the U.S. and worldwide (outside of Japan) versus patients in Japan.

SECONDARY OBJECTIVES:

I. To characterize the duration of overall survival and progression-free survival in each population.

II. To examine the frequency and severity of adverse events as assessed by Common Terminology Criteria for Adverse Events (CTCAE) version 4 in each population.

III. To estimate the rate of objective tumor response in patients with measurable disease.

TERTIARY OBJECTIVES:

I. To explore whether immunohistochemical (IHC) expression of components of the mammalian target of rapamycin (mTOR) signaling pathway (phosphatase and tensin homolog [PTEN], total and phosphorylated protein kinase B [Akt], as well as, ATP-binding cassette, sub-family C [CFTR/MRP], member 3 [ABCC3] [MRP3], ATPase, H+ transporting, lysosomal accessory protein 1 [AB CF2], cyclin E, and vascular endothelial growth factor [VEGF]) are associated with outcome, nationality or clinical characteristics.

II. To explore whether there is any differences in differential gene expression profiles between U.S. and worldwide (outside of Japan) versus Japanese patients.

OUTLINE:

Patients receive paclitaxel* intravenously (IV) over 3 hours and carboplatin IV over 30 minutes on day 1 and temsirolimus IV on days 1 and 8. Treatment repeats every 3 weeks for 6 courses. Patients then receive consolidation therapy comprising temsirolimus IV on days 1, 8, and 15. Treatment repeats every 3 weeks for 11 courses in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity.

NOTE: * For circumstances in which docetaxel should be substituted for paclitaxel, docetaxel is given IV over 1 hour.

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