Brief Summary:
The purpose of this study is to answer the fundamental question, should the physicians choose Surgery or Chemotherapy (SOC 2) in advanced ovarian cancer?

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Epithelial Ovarian Cancer Fallopian Tube Cancer Primary Peritoneal Carcinoma Procedure: Upfront cytoreductive surgery Procedure: Interval debulking surgery Phase 3

Detailed Description:

OBJECTIVES: Compare the efficacy and safety in patients with FIGO (2014) stage IIIC or IV epithelial ovarian cancer, fallopian tube cancer, or peritoneal carcinoma treated with neoadjuvant chemotherapy followed by interval debulking surgery versus upfront surgery.

OUTLINE: This is a randomized phase III multicenter study. Patients will receive upfront maximal cytoreductive surgery followed by at least 6 cycles of adjuvant chemotherapy or 3 cycles of neoadjuvant chemotherapy followed by interval debulking surgery, and then at least 3 cycles of adjuvant chemotherapy.

Patients are followed every 3 months within the first 5 years, and then every 6 months.

PROJECTED ACCRUAL: A total of 456 patients will be accrued for this study within 5 years.


Study Type : Interventional  (Clinical Trial)
Estimated Enrollment : 456 participants
Allocation: Randomized
Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment
Masking: None (Open Label)
Primary Purpose: Treatment
Official Title: Study of Upfront Surgery Versus Neoadjuvant Chemotherapy Followed by Interval Debulking Surgery for Patients With Stage IIIC and IV Ovarian Cancer
Study Start Date : December 2015
Estimated Primary Completion Date : December 2022
Estimated Study Completion Date : December 2022


Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: Upfront cytoreductive surgery
Upfront cytoreductive surgery with a maximal cytoreduction of complete gross resection within 3 weeks after biopsy, followed by at least 6 cycles of adjuvant chemotherapy.
Procedure: Upfront cytoreductive surgery
Upfront cytoreductive surgery with a maximum cytoreduction, then followed by 6 cycles of Paclitaxel 175mg/m2 or Docetaxel 60-75 mg/m2 plus Carboplatin AUC (area under the curve) 5
Other Name: Primary debulking surgery, PDS

Active Comparator: Neoadjuvant chemotherapy
neoadjuvant chemotherapy with 3 cycles of chemotherapy, then followed by interval debulking surgery. The maximal time interval between course 3 chemotherapy and IDS is 6 weeks. And then 3 cycles of adjuvant chemotherapy.
Procedure: Interval debulking surgery
3 cycles of Paclitaxel 175mg/m2 or Docetaxel 60-75 mg/m2 plus Carboplatin AUC (area under the curve) 5, Interval debulking surgery with a maximal cytoreduction of complete gross resection, then followed by another 3 cycles of chemotherapy




Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Overall survival [ Time Frame: Participants will be followed for at least 5 years after randomization ]

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Progression-free survival [ Time Frame: Participants will be followed for at least 2 years after randomization ]
  2. Post-operative complications [ Time Frame: Participants will be followed up to 6 months after randomization ]
    The surgical complications will be evaluated at 30-day after upfront cytoreductive surgery or interval debulking surgery.

  3. Quality of life assessments [ Time Frame: Participants will be followed for at least 5 years or death after randomization ]

Ages Eligible for Study:   18 Years and older   (Adult, Older Adult)
Sexes Eligible for Study:   Female
Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   No
Criteria

Inclusion Criteria:

  1. Women aged ≥ 18 years.
  2. Pathologic confirmed stage IIIC and IV epithelial ovarian cancer, fallopian tube cancer or primary peritoneal carcinoma (diagnosis by biopsy or fine needle aspiration*). Laparoscopic biopsy with pictures is recommended.

    * If fine needle aspiration showing an adenocarcinoma, patients should satisfy the following conditions: a. the patient has a pelvic mass, and b. omental cake or other metastasis larger than 2 cm in the upper abdomen, or pathologic confirmed extra-abdominal metastasis, and c. serum CA125/CEA ratio>25. If serum CA125/CEA ratio<25 or malignancies of other origins, such as breasts and digestive tract, are suspected from symptoms, physical examinations or imaging diagnosis, endoscopy or ultrasonography should be done to exclusive metastasis ovarian cancer.

  3. ECOG performance status of 0 to 2.
  4. ASA score of 1 to 2.
  5. Adequate bone marrow, liver and renal function to receive chemotherapy and subsequently to undergo surgery:

    1. white blood cells >3,000/µL, absolute neutrophil count ≥1,500/µL, platelets ≥100,000/µL, hemoglobin ≥9 g/dL,
    2. serum creatinine <1.25 x upper normal limit (UNL) or creatinine clearance ≥60 mL/min according to Cockroft-Gault formula or to local lab measurement,
    3. serum bilirubin <1.25 x UNL, AST(SGOT) and ALT(SGPT) <2.5 x UNL.
  6. Comply with the study protocol and follow-up.
  7. Written informed consent.

Exclusion Criteria:

  1. Patients with non-epithelial tumors as well as borderline tumors.
  2. Mucinous ovarian cancer.
  3. Low grade ovarian cancer.
  4. Synchronous or metachronous (within 5 years) malignancy other than carcinoma in situ.
  5. Any other concurrent medical conditions contraindicating surgery or chemotherapy that could compromise the adherence to the protocol.
  6. Other conditions, such as religious, psychological and other factors, that could interfere with provision of informed consent, compliance to study procedures, or follow-up.
