  Outcome Measures

1.  Primary:   The Cystostatic, Anti-tumor Activity of the Combination of Gleevec and Gemzar Via Progression-free Survival for at Least Six Months in Patients With Recurrent or Persistent Epithelial Ovarian or Primary Peritoneal Carcinoma.   [ Time Frame: Time to progression was measured from enrollment in study until documented disease progression over a period not greater than 2 years. ]

2.  Primary:   To Determine the Safety and Tolerability Via Frequency and Severity of Adverse Effect of Combination Gleevec and Gemzar in This Cohort of Patients as Assessed Byt Common Toxicity Criteria   [ Time Frame: Until disease progression or unacceptable toxicity ]

3.  Secondary:   Tumor Response Rates Using Modified SWOG Criteria to the Combination of Gleevec and Gemzar in Patients With Relapsed Ovarian Cancer Who Have Failed at Least One Prior Chemotherapy Treatment.   [ Time Frame: Subjects treated until progression of disease or unacceptable toxicity. no maximum dose was specified ]

4.  Secondary:   To Determine the Distribution of the Overall Survival   [ Time Frame: Until death ]

5.  Secondary:   To Estimate the Clinical Response Rate(Partial and Complete Response as Defined Under the SWOG Criterial)   [ Time Frame: until disease progression or unacceptable toxicity ]

6.  Secondary:   To Assess the Effects of Prognostic Variables; Initial Performance Status; Platinum Sensitivity, and Mucinous (or Clear Cell)Histology on Progression-free Survival Overall.   [ Time Frame: Until disease progression ]

  Serious Adverse Events

  Other Adverse Events

  Limitations and Caveats

Limitations of the study, such as early termination leading to small numbers of participants analyzed and technical problems with measurement leading to unreliable or uninterpretable data
This study was terminated due to a combination of poor accrual and lack of evidence of benefit.
