Ages Eligible for Study:   18 Years to 70 Years   (Adult, Senior)
Sexes Eligible for Study:   Female
Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   No

Inclusion Criteria:

  • Histologically/cytologically confirmed, optimally debulked stage III-IV epithelial ovarian cancer excluding clear cell histology.
  • ECOG Performance Status is 0-2
  • No prior chemotherapy for this malignancy,
  • Acceptable hematological profile (as defined by a leukocyte count ≥ 3000/mm3, a platelet count ≥ 100.000mm3 and Hb ≥ 9g/100mL), and adequate renal function (as defined by serum creatinine ≤ 1.5mg/dl or creatinine clearance by formulation ≥ 60 mL/min), and hepatic function (as defined by bilirubin ≤ 1.5 x maximum normal value even with hepatic metastasis; transaminases (ALT, AST) ≤ 1.5 x maximum normal value; alkaline phosphatase ≤ 2.5 x maximum normal value, except in case of a bone metastasis)

Exclusion Criteria:

  • Concomitant use of another anti-cancer therapy
  • Unstable medical condition that makes the patient unable to take part in a clinical study (congestive heart failure, serious arrythmia, uncontrolled diabetes mellitus), history of myocardial infarction within last 3 months, massive pleural, peritoneal or pericardial effusion; or presence of serious uncontrolled infection.
  • Presence of other tumours different from basal cell carcinoma of the skin.
  • Pregnancy or breastfeeding. In women of childbearing potential and in men, an adequate contraceptive method must be used
  • Social or psychological condition that render the patient inadequate for the follow-up of the study
  • Contraindication for any of the study drugs (e.g. history of hypersensitivity to any of the ingredients of the study drugs)
