RATIONALE: Drugs used in chemotherapy use different ways to stop tumor cells from dividing so they stop growing or die.
OBJECTIVES: I. Determine the objective response rate and disease stabilization rate in patients with platinum-resistant advanced ovarian epithelial cancer, fallopian tube cancer, or primary peritoneal cancer treated with TLK286. II. Determine the safety of this regimen in these patients. III. Determine the duration of objective response, time to tumor progression, and overall survival in patients treated with this regimen.
OUTLINE: This is a multicenter study. Patients receive TLK286 IV over 30 minutes on day 1. Treatment repeats every 21 days in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity. Patients are followed every 6 weeks for 1 year and then every 12 weeks thereafter.
PROJECTED ACCRUAL: Approximately 20-40 patients will be accrued for this study within 12 months.
Primary Purpose: Treatment
Fallopian Tube Cancer
Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center
National Cancer Institute (NCI)

RATIONALE: Lenalidomide may stop the growth of cancer by blocking blood flow to the tumor. Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as doxorubicin hydrochloride liposome, work in different ways to...
This randomized phase II trial studies how well Ataxia-telangiectasia and Rad3-related [ATR] kinase inhibitor VX-970 (VX-970) and gemcitabine hydrochloride work compared to standard treatm...
RATIONALE: Erlotinib may stop the growth of tumor cells by blocking some of the enzymes needed for cell growth. Sometimes after treatment, the tumor may not need additional treatment until...
RATIONALE: There is emerging data to suggest that the optimal use of angiogenesis inhibitors may be in combination with chemotherapy. The optimal use of atrasentan may be in combination w...
Prospective, multi-center, non-randomized study to assess the ability of the MAKO 7 device to collect cell samples from the fallopian tube that can be evaluated for the presence or absence...
The tight junction between epithelial cells helps making connections in the fallopian tube and contributes to successful fertilization. Breaking the tight junction complex induces various diseases suc...
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...
To study the association between endometrial polyps and fallopian tube patency diagnosed by hysteroscopy, conventional histology, and four-dimensional hysterosalpingo contrast sonography (4D-HyCoSy).
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...
Diseases involving the FALLOPIAN TUBES including neoplasms (FALLOPIAN TUBE NEOPLASMS); SALPINGITIS; tubo-ovarian abscess; and blockage.
Methods for assessing the patency of the fallopian tubes.
Benign or malignant neoplasms of the FALLOPIAN TUBES. They are uncommon. If they develop, they may be located in the wall or within the lumen as a growth attached to the wall by a stalk.
Formation of an artificial opening in a fallopian tube.
A pair of highly specialized muscular canals extending from the UTERUS to its corresponding OVARY. They provide the means for OVUM collection, and the site for the final maturation of gametes and FERTILIZATION. The fallopian tube consists of an interstitium, an isthmus, an ampulla, an infundibulum, and fimbriae. Its wall consists of three histologic layers: serous, muscular, and an internal mucosal layer lined with both ciliated and secretory cells.
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...
