Recruitment Status : Completed
First Posted : December 7, 2005
Last Update Posted : May 4, 2012

Novartis ( Novartis Pharmaceuticals )

Brief Summary:
The objective of this study is to assess the safety and efficacy of patupilone compared to pegylated liposomal doxorubicin. Additionally, this study will assess the ability of patupilone to extend the survival time and potential beneficial effects in women who have nonresponsive or recurrent ovarian, primary fallopian, or primary peritoneal cancer.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Ovarian Cancer Fallopian Tube Cancer Peritoneal Neoplasms Drug: EPO906 (Patupilone) Drug: doxorubicin Phase 3

Study Type : Interventional  (Clinical Trial)
Actual Enrollment : 829 participants
Allocation: Randomized
Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment
Masking: None (Open Label)
Primary Purpose: Treatment
Official Title: A Randomized, Parallel Group, Open-label, Active Controlled, Multicenter Phase III Trial of Patupilone (EPO906) Versus Pegylated Liposomal Doxorubicin in Taxane/Platinum Refractory/Resistant Patients With Recurrent Epithelial Ovarian, Primary Fallopian or Primary Peritoneal Cancer
Study Start Date : November 2005
Actual Primary Completion Date : February 2010

Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: Patupilone Drug: EPO906 (Patupilone)
Other Name: Patupilone
Active Comparator: doxorubicin Drug: doxorubicin

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. To show superiority of patupilone in overall survival compared to doxorubicin in taxane/platinum resistant patients with ovarian cancer [ Time Frame: every 8 weeks ]

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. To determine the duration of overall response in patients with complete response (CR) or partial response (PR) or stable disease (SD) [ Time Frame: End of study ]
  2. To determine the progression-free survival (PFS) of patients treated with patupilone [ Time Frame: end of study ]
  3. To determine the time to disease progression (TTP) of patients treated with patupilone [ Time Frame: end of study ]
  4. To determine overall best tumor response (CR, PR, SD, PD and Unknown) [ Time Frame: end of study ]
  5. To investigate the safety and tolerability of patupilone [ Time Frame: end of study ]
  6. To evaluate the pharmacokinetics (PK) of patupilone from all patients [ Time Frame: end of study ]
  7. To explore relationships between Cmin (pre-dose patupilone blood concentration) and efficacy/adverse events [ Time Frame: end of study ]
