Comparison of Cisplatin Combined With Either Paclitaxel or Gemcitabine in Treating Patients With Recurrent, Persistent, or Metastatic Cervical Cancer

2014-07-24 14:33:49 | BioPortfolio

Summary

RATIONALE: Drugs used in chemotherapy use different ways to stop tumor cells from dividing so they stop growing or die. Combining more than one drug may kill more tumor cells. It is not yet known whether cisplatin is more effective when combined with paclitaxel or gemcitabine in treating cervical cancer.

PURPOSE: Randomized phase III trial to compare the effectiveness of cisplatin combined with paclitaxel to that of cisplatin combined with gemcitabine in treating women who have recurrent, persistent, or metastatic cervical cancer.

Description

OBJECTIVES:

- Compare the overall survival, progression-free survival, and objective response rate (confirmed and unconfirmed, complete and partial) of patients with recurrent, persistent, or metastatic cervical cancer treated with cisplatin and paclitaxel vs cisplatin and gemcitabine.

- Compare the toxicity of these regimens in these patients.

OUTLINE: This is a randomized, multicenter study. Patients are stratified according to disease status at study entry (metastatic vs recurrent vs persistent), prior cisplatin as a radiosensitizer (yes vs no), and extent of disease (confined to pelvis vs extrapelvic disease). Patients are randomized to 1 of 2 treatment arms.

- Arm I: Patients receive paclitaxel IV over 24 hours on day 1 and cisplatin IV over 2 hours on day 2.

- Arm II:Patients receive gemcitabine IV over 30 minutes on days 1 and 8 and cisplatin IV over 2 hours on day 1.

In both arms, treatment repeats every 21 days for up to 6 courses in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity.

Patients are followed every 3 months for 2 years and then annually for 3 years.

PROJECTED ACCRUAL: A total of 500 patients (250 per treatment arm) will be accrued for this study within 4 years.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

An inorganic and water-soluble platinum complex. After undergoing hydrolysis, it reacts with DNA to produce both intra and interstrand crosslinks. These crosslinks appear to impair replication and transcription of DNA. The cytotoxicity of cisplatin correlates with cellular arrest in the G2 phase of the cell cycle.

An injectable formulation of albumin-bound paclitaxel NANOPARTICLES.

Morphological abnormalities of the cervical EPITHELIUM, usually revealed in PAP SMEAR, which do not meet the criteria for squamous CERVICAL INTRAEPITHELIAL NEOPLASIA or SQUAMOUS CELL CARCINOMAS of the CERVIX . It may be a sign of infection with certain types of human papillomavirus (HPV).or sign of a benign (not cancer) growth, such as a cyst or polyp or, in menopausal women, of low hormone levels. More testing, such as HPV test, may be needed.

A network of nerve fibers originating in the upper four cervical spinal cord segments. The cervical plexus distributes cutaneous nerves to parts of the neck, shoulders, and back of the head, and motor fibers to muscles of the cervical spinal column, infrahyoid muscles, and the diaphragm.

A parameter usually used in PRENATAL ULTRASONOGRAPHY to measure the length of the uterine neck (CERVIX UTERI). Cervical length or its shortening is used to identify and prevent early cervical opening and PRETERM BIRTH.
