Brief Title  ICMJE Paclitaxel in Treating Patients With Ovarian Epithelial Cancer or Primary Peritoneal Cancer
Official Title  ICMJE A Phase II Evaluation of Weekly Paclitaxel in the Treatment of Recurrent or Persistent Platinum and Paclitaxel-Resistant Ovarian or Primary Peritoneal Cancer
Brief Summary

RATIONALE: Drugs used in chemotherapy use different ways to stop tumor cells from dividing so they stop growing or die.

PURPOSE: Phase II trial to study the effectiveness of paclitaxel in treating patients who have recurrent or persistent ovarian epithelial cancer or primary peritoneal cancer.

Detailed Description

OBJECTIVES:

  • Determine the antitumor activity of paclitaxel in patients with recurrent or persistent platinum- and paclitaxel-resistant ovarian epithelial or primary peritoneal cancer.
  • Determine the nature and degree of toxicity of this drug in these patients.

OUTLINE: Patients receive paclitaxel IV over 1 hour once weekly for 4 weeks. Treatment repeats every 4 weeks in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity.

Patients are followed every 3 months for 2 years, every 6 months for 3 years, and then annually thereafter.

PROJECTED ACCRUAL: Approximately 19-51 patients will be accrued for this study within 6-12 months.
