Patients with extensive and bulky disease are often those whose initial surgery is delayed after 3 or 4 cycles of neo-adjuvant chemotherapy.
In that case, there is, indeed, some concern to administer bevacizumab during the chemotherapy surrounding the interval debulking surgery due to the long half life (14- 21 days) of this monoclonal antibody and the interference of anti angiogenic agents with wound healing.
Vargatef® (Nintedanib) might offer a better alternative to bevacizumab in the neo-adjuvant setting. Vargatef® (Nintedanib) has a much shorter half-life of 7 to 19 hours. Preliminary experience in cancer did not show a trend for increased incidence of fistula or bowel perforation. For more details please refer to the investigator drug brochure for Vargatef® (Nintedanib).
This trial will compare progression-free survival and surgical complications of 188 patients with FIGO stage IIIC/IV treated in first line with either neo-adjuvant chemotherapy (carboplatin & paclitaxel) and interval debulking surgery or the same treatment + Vargatef® (Nintedanib).

400 mg (200 mg twice daily) Route of administration= oral Twice daily (to be swallowed unchewed with a glass of water of about 250 mL. If taken twice the dose interval should be of around 12 hours at the same times every day, usually in the morning and the evening after food intake).
Continuous daily dosing until progression of disease or until criteria for interruption of treatment are met, no intake of Vargatef® (Nintedanib) on days of paclitaxel and carboplatin administration. The maximum time on monotherapy is 2 years.
|Placebo Comparator: placebo||

If taken twice the dose interval should be of around 12 hours at the same times every day, usually in the morning and the evening after food intake).
Continuous daily dosing until progression of disease or until criteria for interruption of treatment is met, no intake of placebo on days of paclitaxel and carboplatin administration.
The maximum time on monotherapy is 2 years.
