RATIONALE: Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as oxaliplatin and topotecan, work in different ways to stop the growth of tumor cells, either by killing the cells or by stopping them from dividing. Giving more than one drug (combination chemotherapy) may kill more tumor cells.
PURPOSE: This phase II trial is studying how well giving oxaliplatin together with topotecan works in treating patients with ovarian epithelial cancer, primary peritoneal cancer, or fallopian tube cancer.
- Estimate the overall clinical response rate (complete and partial responses) in patients with previously treated ovarian epithelial, primary peritoneal, or fallopian tube cancer treated with oxaliplatin and topotecan.
- Determine the toxic effects in patients treated with this regimen.
- Estimate the time to progression and overall clinical response duration in patients treated with this regimen.
OUTLINE: This is an open-label, multicenter study.
Patients are stratified according to response to prior platinum therapy (resistant vs sensitive).
Patients receive oxaliplatin IV over 2 hours on days 1 and 15 and topotecan IV continuously on days 1-14. Treatment repeats every 28 days for up to 6 courses in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity.
After completion of study treatment, patients are followed at 30 days.
PROJECTED ACCRUAL: A total of 52 patients will be accrued for this study.

Recent evidence has suggested that the fallopian tube may often be the site of origin for the most common and lethal form of ovarian cancer. As a result, many Colleges of Obstetrics & Gynecology, incl...
Papillomas of the fallopian tube are exceedingly rare benign tumors, and only very few cases have been reported in the literature. Clinically, they may present as a mass lesion or occur without sympto...

Fallopian tube carcinoma is a rare female genital cancer with no specific clinical and surgical features. It is hardly diagnosed on imaging due to non-specific presentation. Laparoscopy has been recom...
