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 topotecan in treating patients who have recurrent ovarian epithelial or primary peritoneal cancer.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Ovarian Cancer Primary Peritoneal Cavity Cancer Drug: topotecan hydrochloride Phase 2

Detailed Description:

OBJECTIVES: I. Determine the antitumor activity of topotecan in patients with recurrent platinum sensitive ovarian epithelial or primary peritoneal cancer. II. Determine the nature and degree of toxicity of this treatment regimen in these patients.

OUTLINE: Patients receive topotecan IV over 30 minutes on days 1-3. Treatment continues every 3 weeks in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity. Patients are followed every 3 months for 2 years and then every 6 months for 3 years.

PROJECTED ACCRUAL: A total of 22-60 patients will be accrued for this study.

Study Type : Interventional  (Clinical Trial)
Primary Purpose: Treatment
Official Title: Phase II Evaluation of Three-Day Topotecan (NSC 609699) in Recurrent Platinum-Sensitive Ovarian or Primary Peritoneal Cancer
Study Start Date : February 2000
Actual Primary Completion Date : January 2004
