Imatinib Mesylate in Treating Patients With Stage III or Stage IV Ovarian Epithelial or Primary Peritoneal Cancer

2014-08-27 03:56:07 | BioPortfolio

Summary

RATIONALE: Imatinib mesylate may stop the growth of tumor cells by blocking the enzymes necessary for cancer cell growth.

PURPOSE: Phase II trial to study the effectiveness of imatinib mesylate in treating patients who have stage III or stage IV ovarian epithelial or primary peritoneal cancer that has not responded to previous treatment.

Description

OBJECTIVES:

- Determine the response rates (confirmed, complete, and partial) in patients with platinum- and taxane-refractory stage III or IV ovarian epithelial or primary peritoneal cancer treated with imatinib mesylate.

- Determine the toxicity of this drug in these patients.

- Correlate, preliminarily, CD117 and platelet-derived growth factor receptor expression levels with response in patients treated with this drug.

OUTLINE: This is a multicenter study.

Patients receive oral imatinib mesylate once daily in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity.

Patients are followed every 3 months for 1 year, every 6 months for 2 years, and then annually thereafter.

PROJECTED ACCRUAL: A total of 20-40 patients will be accrued for this study.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A tyrosine kinase inhibitor and ANTINEOPLASTIC AGENT that inhibits the BCR-ABL kinase created by chromosome rearrangements in CHRONIC MYELOID LEUKEMIA and ACUTE LYMPHOBLASTIC LEUKEMIA, as well as PDG-derived tyrosine kinases that are overexpressed in gastrointestinal stromal tumors.

Autosomal dominant HEREDITARY CANCER SYNDROME in which a mutation most often in either BRCA1 or BRCA2 is associated with a significantly increased risk for breast and ovarian cancers.

An antineoplastic agent used to treat ovarian cancer. It works by inhibiting DNA TOPOISOMERASES, TYPE I.

Cessation of ovarian function after MENARCHE but before the age of 40, without or with OVARIAN FOLLICLE depletion. It is characterized by the presence of OLIGOMENORRHEA or AMENORRHEA, elevated GONADOTROPINS, and low ESTRADIOL levels. It is a state of female HYPERGONADOTROPIC HYPOGONADISM. Etiologies include genetic defects, autoimmune processes, chemotherapy, radiation, and infections.
