  Purpose
The primary objective of this study is to estimate whether the addition of trastuzumab to paclitaxel and carboplatin chemotherapy improves progression free survival when compared to paclitaxel and carboplatin alone in Uterine Serous Papillary Carcinoma (USPC) patients overexpressing Her2/neu at 3+ level by immunohistochemistry (IHC)or positive by fluorescence in situ hybridization (FISH).

Arms Assigned Interventions
Active Comparator: Carboplatin/Paclitaxel
Chemotherapy
Drug: Carboplatin/Paclitaxel
Paclitaxel 175 mg/m2 will administered intravenously every 21 days for 6 cycles. Carboplatin AUC 5 will be administered intravenously every 21 days for 6 cycles. 100% of patients will receive Carboplatin/Paclitaxel.
Other Names:
  • Taxus brevifolia
  • cis-Diammine
Experimental: Trastuzumab
Monoclonal antibody
Drug: Trastuzumab
Paclitaxel 175 mg/m2 will be administered intravenously every 21 days for 6 cycles. Carboplatin AUC 5 will be administered intravenously every 21 days for 6 cycles. On day 1, an 8 mg/kg loading dose of trastuzumab will be administered over a 90 minute period. Beginning on day 21, patients will receive 6mg/kg of trastuzumab, administered intravenously every 21 days and continued indefinitely every 21 days after 6 cycles of cytotoxic therapy are completed and until progression of the disease or prohibitive toxicities occur. 50% of patients will receive Carboplatin/Paclitaxel with the addition of Trastuzumab.
Other Name: Herceptin

Detailed Description:
The purpose of this study is to perform a randomized Phase II evaluation of Carboplatin/Paclitaxel with or without Trastuzumab (Herceptin) in patients with HER2/neu+ advanced stage/recurrent disease with an emphasis on determining the progression free survival in USPC patients and assessing immunologic markers predictive of trastuzumab response.
