RATIONALE: Drugs used in chemotherapy use different ways to stop tumor cells from dividing so they stop growing or die.
- Determine the maximum tolerated dose and duration of prolonged topotecan as maintenance in patients with advanced ovarian epithelial, fallopian tube, or primary peritoneal cancer with complete clinical response after platinum-based chemotherapy.
- Determine the safety of this regimen in these patients.
OUTLINE: This is a dose-escalation study.
Patients receive oral topotecan twice daily for 21 days. Treatment repeats every 28 days for up to 6 months in the absence of unacceptable toxicity or disease progression.
Patients who tolerate course 1 may receive an escalated dose of topotecan for subsequent courses. The maximum tolerated dose is defined as the dose tolerated by the majority of the patients.
Patients are followed every 2 months for at least 6 months.
PROJECTED ACCRUAL: A total of 20 patients will be accrued for this study.
Primary Purpose: Treatment
Fallopian Tube Cancer
topotecan hydrochloride, adjuvant therapy

Detailed pathologic studies over the past decade suggest a distal fallopian tube origin for the majority of "ovarian" high-grade serous carcinomas (HGSC). This review will summarize molecular alterati...
Interval debulking surgery (IDS) after neoadjuvant chemotherapy (NAC) is currently one of the preferred treatment options for advanced ovarian, fallopian tube or peritoneal cancer. This study was cond...
The aim of this study was to provide a three-dimensional (3D) microscopic reconstruction of morphological modifications of the fallopian tube (FT) following surgical sterilization (including tuboperit...
Current evidences indicate that the fallopian tube plays a major role in the pathogenesis of epithelial ovarian cancer (EOC). Salpingectomy represents a novel and potentially effective risk-reducing o...
Class V Beta tubulin isotype (βV-tubulin) was recently found to have tissue-specific expression patterns in epithelial tissues with secretory function and aberrant expression in tumors. The aims of t...
Drug therapy given to augment or stimulate some other form of treatment such as surgery or radiation therapy. Adjuvant chemotherapy is commonly used in the therapy of cancer and can be administered before or after the primary treatment.
Diseases involving the FALLOPIAN TUBES including neoplasms (FALLOPIAN TUBE NEOPLASMS); SALPINGITIS; tubo-ovarian abscess; and blockage.
Radiotherapy given to augment some other form of treatment such as surgery or chemotherapy. Adjuvant radiotherapy is commonly used in the therapy of cancer and can be administered before or after the primary treatment.
Combined chemotherapy and radiotherapy given to augment some other form of treatment such as surgery. It is commonly used in the therapy of cancer.
Methods for assessing the patency of the fallopian tubes.
In a clinical trial or interventional study, participants receive specific interventions according to the research plan or protocol created by the investigators. These interventions may be medical products, such as drugs or devices; procedures; or change...

Cancer is not just one disease but many diseases. There are more than 100 different types of cancer. Most cancers are named for the organ or type of cell in which they start - for example, cancer that begins in the colon is called colon cancer; cancer th...
