S0025 Irinotecan in Treating Patients With Refractory Ovarian Epithelial, Primary Peritoneal, or Fallopian Tube Cancer
S0025: Phase II Trial Of Irinotecan (CAMPTOSAR) For Patients With Platinum And Taxane Refractory Ovarian, Peritoneal Or Fallopian Tube Cancer

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 irinotecan in treating patients who have refractory ovarian epithelial, primary peritoneal, or fallopian tube cancer.


  • Determine the objective confirmed and unconfirmed complete and partial response rates of patients with platinum- and taxane-refractory ovarian epithelial, primary peritoneal, or fallopian tube cancer treated with irinotecan.
  • Determine the progression-free and overall survival of patients treated with this drug.
  • Evaluate the qualitative and quantitative toxic effects of this drug in these patients.

OUTLINE: Patients receive irinotecan IV over 90 minutes on days 1 and 8. Courses repeat every 21 days in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity.

Patients are followed every 6 months for 3 years.

PROJECTED ACCRUAL: A total of 20-40 patients will be accrued for this study.

  • Must meet one of the following criteria for refractory/relapsed disease:

    • Relapsed within 6 months after completing front-line concurrent or sequential platinum (either cisplatin or carboplatin) and taxane (paclitaxel or docetaxel) chemotherapy
    • Had a best response of increasing disease during this front-line regimen

      • Consolidation chemotherapy and reinduction therapy are counted as part of the front-line regimen
  • Unidimensionally measurable disease

    • At least 2 cm by medical photograph (skin or oral lesion), palpation, plain x-ray, CT scan, MRI, or other conventional technique (bone lesions not included)
    • At least 1 cm by spiral CT scan
    • Measurable disease must remain outside of radiotherapy field
  • If the tumor is known to be KIT (CD117) or PDGFR positive, patient must be offered SWOG-S0211 if available
