Brief Summary:
This trial will compare the efficacy and toxicity of standard first-line chemotherapy alone vs. standard chemotherapy plus sorafenib in patients with stage III/IV ovarian cancer following cytoreductive surgery. Patients with residual large volume disease and/or bowel involvement will be excluded, to minimize the risk of bowel perforation.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Ovarian Cancer Drug: Sorafenib Drug: Paclitaxel Drug: Carboplatin Phase 2

Detailed Description:

All patients must be at least 4 weeks from cytoreductive surgery before starting treatment. Patients will be randomized to receive treatment with either paclitaxel/carboplatin + sorafenib or paclitaxel/carboplatin. Paclitaxel/carboplatin will be repeated every 21 days for a maximum of 6 cycles. Patients with objective response/stable disease after completing 6 courses of chemotherapy will continue sorafenib until disease progression or for a total of 12 months.

- Regimen A:

Paclitaxel 175 mg/m2 1-3 hour IV infusion, Day 1

Carboplatin AUC 6 infused over 20 minutes IV, Day 1

Sorafenib 400mg PO bid

- Regimen B:

Paclitaxel 175mg/m2, 1-3 hour IV infusion, Day 1

Carboplatin AUC 6.0, 20 minute IV infusion, Day 1

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. 2-year Progression-free Survival [ Time Frame: 2 years ]
    The proportion of patients with progression-free survival at 2 years. Progression-free survival is measured from Day 1 of study drug administration to disease progression as defined by Response Evaluation Criteria in Solid Tumors (RECIST) v1.1, or death on study. Progression is defined in RECIST v1.1 as a 20% increase in the sum of the longest diameter of target lesions, or a measurable increase in a non-target lesion, or the appearance of new lesions

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Overall Response Rate (ORR) [ Time Frame: 18 months ]
    Number of patients with either complete response (CR) or partial response (PR) as defined in Response Evaluation Criteria in Solid Tumors (for patients with measurable disease) or determined by CA-125 levels (for patients without measurable disease). Complete Response: Disappearance of all target lesions, disappearance of all non-target lesions, and normalization of CA-125 for at least 4 weeks. In patients who have only elevated CA-125, the CA-125 must normalize (< 23U/mL) for more than 4 weeks. Partial Response: At least a 30% decrease in the sum of the longest diameter of target lesions, taking as reference the baseline sum of longest diameters. For patients with elevated CA-125 only, partial response will be defined as a > 50% decrease in the serum CA-125 level.

  2. Overall Survival (OS) [ Time Frame: 18 months ]
    Overall survival was measured from the date of study entry until the date of death

  3. Toxicity of Paclitaxel/Carboplatin vs. Paclitaxel/Carboplatin/Sorafenib [ Time Frame: 18 months ]
    Number of patients experiencing treatment-related adverse events

  3. All patients must have undergone cytoreductive surgery, with the

    following results:

    1. No residual tumor nodule > 3cm
    2. No residual tumor involvement of the bowel (ie. invasion into bowel


    3. No residual intestinal obstruction
  4. Measurable or evaluable disease. Patients with elevated CA-125 levels

    and/or evaluable disease per RECIST criteria are eligible.

  5. ECOG performance status 0 or 1.
  6. ANC ≥ 1500/µL, platelets ≥ 100,000/µL, hemoglobin ≥ 9.0 g/dL.
