TLK286 in Treating Patients With Advanced Ovarian Epithelial Cancer, Fallopian Tube Cancer, or Primary Peritoneal Cancer

2014-08-27 03:56:41 | BioPortfolio

Summary

RATIONALE: Drugs used in chemotherapy use different ways to stop tumor cells from dividing so they stop growing or die.

PURPOSE: Phase II trial to study the effectiveness of TLK286 in treating patients who have advanced ovarian epithelial cancer, fallopian tube cancer, or primary peritoneal cancer.

Description

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.

Clinical Trials [1702 Associated Clinical Trials listed on BioPortfolio]

Lenalidomide and Doxorubicin Hydrochloride Liposome in Treating Patients With Recurrent Ovarian Epithelial Cancer, Fallopian Tube Cancer, or Primary Peritoneal Cancer

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...

Erlotinib or Observation in Treating Patients Who Have Undergone First-Line Chemotherapy for Ovarian Cancer, Peritoneal Cancer, or Fallopian Tube Cancer

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...

Gemcitabine Hydrochloride Alone or With VX-970 in Treating Patients With Recurrent Ovarian, Primary Peritoneal, or Fallopian Tube Cancer

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...

Ph II Atrasentan + DOXIL in Recurrent Ovarian/Fallopian/Peritoneal Serous Papillary Adenoca

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...

Topotecan in Treating Patients With Advanced Ovarian Epithelial, Fallopian Tube, or Primary Peritoneal Cancer

RATIONALE: Drugs used in chemotherapy use different ways to stop tumor cells from dividing so they stop growing or die. PURPOSE: Phase I trial to study the effectiveness of topotecan in t...

Extending the safety evidence for opportunistic salpingectomy in prevention of ovarian cancer: A cohort study from British Columbia, Canada.

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...

Papilloma of the Fallopian Tube: A Rare Gynecologic Neoplasm Harboring a BRAF (c.1799T>A) Mutation (V600E).

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...

Tuboperitoneal fistula, ectopic pregnancy, and remnants of fallopian tube: a confocal microtomography analysis and 3D reconstruction of human fallopian tube pathologies.

Opportunistic salpingectomy at benign gynecological surgery for reducing ovarian cancer risk: a 10-year single centre experience from China and a literature review.

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...

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...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

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.
