This phase I trial studies the side effects and the best dose of stereotactic body radiation therapy (SBRT) in treating patients with metastatic or recurrent ovarian cancer or primary peritoneal cancer. SBRT may be able to send x-rays directly to the tumor and cause less damage to normal tissue.

Condition Intervention Phase
Recurrent Ovarian Epithelial Cancer
Recurrent Ovarian Germ Cell Tumor
Malignant Tumor of Peritoneum
Stage IV Ovarian Epithelial Cancer
Stage IV Ovarian Germ Cell Tumor
Radiation: stereotactic body radiation therapy
Procedure: positron emission tomography
Procedure: computed tomography
Other: questionnaire administration
Radiation: fludeoxyglucose F 18

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Tumor response to SBRT as assessed by FDG-PET/CT [ Time Frame: At 3 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    FDG-PET response based on interpretation by nuclear medicine physician with measurement of the maximal standard uptake value (SUV) and identification of new sites of disease. Percentage of decreased SUVmax between the pre- and post-treatment FDG-PET/CT, evaluating means, medians, range and standard deviations.

  • The rate of grade 3 or greater non-hematologic acute toxicity as graded by the CTCAE v. 4.0 [ Time Frame: 4-6 weeks, and up to 3 months after treatment ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
    Toxicity will be tabulated by type and grade.

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Measure CA-125 level [ Time Frame: At baseline; 6 weeks; and 3, 6, and 12 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • FACT-Ovarian Symptom Index [ Time Frame: At baseline; 6 weeks; and 3, 6, and 12 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Late toxicity and non-grade 3 or greater acute toxicity following SBRT [ Time Frame: At 6 weeks; 3, 6, 12, 18 and 24 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
  • Local control [ Time Frame: Up to 5 years ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Progression-free survival [ Time Frame: Up to 5 years ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Overall survival [ Time Frame: Up to 5 years ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Detailed Description:


I. Evaluate response of platinum-resistant ovarian cancer to stereotactic body radiation therapy (SBRT) using fludeoxyglucose F 18 (18F-FDG) positron emission tomography (PET)/computed tomography (CT) 3 months after therapy.

II. Determine the rate of grade 3 or greater non-hematologic acute toxicity from SBRT using Common Terminology Criteria for Adverse Events (CTCAE) version 4.0.


I. Evaluate response to SBRT using cancer antigen-125 (CA-125) and symptom assessment using Functional Assessment of Cancer Therapy (FACT)-Ovarian Symptom Index (FOSI).

II. Determine the rate of late and non-grade 3 acute toxicity using CTCAE version 4.0.

III. Evaluate local control, progression-free survival, and overall survival following SBRT.


Patients undergo SBRT 5 days a week for approximately 1 week in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity.

After completion of study treatment, patients are followed up at 6 weeks, 3, 6, 9, and 12 months, and then every 6 months for 4 years.
