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.
- Determine the maximum tolerated dose of doxorubicin HCl liposome when administered with carboplatin in patients with gynecological tumors.
- Determine the dose-limiting toxicity of this regimen in these patients.
- Determine the kind, frequency, severity, and duration of adverse events in patients treated with this regimen.
OUTLINE: This is a multicenter, dose-escalation study of doxorubicin HCl liposome.
Patients receive doxorubicin HCl liposome IV over 60 minutes followed by carboplatin IV over 30 minutes on day 1. Treatment repeats every 28 days for 6 courses.
Cohorts of 3-6 patients receive escalating doses of doxorubicin HCl liposome until the maximum tolerated dose (MTD) is determined. The MTD is defined as the dose preceding that at which at least 2 of 3 or 2 of 6 patients experience dose-limiting toxicity. Once the MTD is determined, additional patients are accrued and treated at the MTD as above.
Patients are followed at 4-6 weeks and then every 3 months thereafter.
PROJECTED ACCRUAL: A total of 12-24 patients will be accrued for this study within 1 year.
Primary Purpose: Treatment

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.
