Topotecan: 0,75 mg/m²/d, day 1-3, and Carboplatin: AUC 5 (after Cockroft and Gault Formula) on day 3 after Topotecan, q 21d
Other Name: Hycamtin
No Intervention: 2
Paclitaxel 175 mg/m2/d, day 1 and Carboplatin: AUC 5 (after Cockroft and Gault formula), day 1, q21d OR gemcitabine 1000 mg/m2/d, day 1 and 8 and Carboplatin AUC 4 (after Cockroft and Gault formula), day 1, q 21d.
In Germany there are two established therapy regimes for platin sensitive ovarian cancer: the combination of carboplatin and paclitaxel as well as the combination of carboplatin with gemcitabine. Choice of therapy is individual due to missing randomized comparisons between the regimes. Topotecan has shown good efficacy in second-line therapy of ovarian cancer as well as a good, especially, non-hematoxic toxicity profile. Several phase II-studies have demonstrated a synergistic effect of topotecan in combination with carboplatin exhibiting good efficacy and tolerability.
It shall be tested in this randomized phase III-study if the combination of topotecan and carboplatin shows improvement of progression-free survival in comparison to the standard regimes.
