Carboxyamidotriazole in Treating Patients With Refractory or Recurrent Ovarian Epithelial, Fallopian Tube, or Primary Peritoneal Cancer

2014-07-23 21:55:52 | 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 carboxyamidotriazole in treating patients with refractory or recurrent ovarian epithelial, fallopian tube, or primary peritoneal cancer.

Description

OBJECTIVES:

- Determine the clinical outcome in patients with ovarian epithelial, fallopian tube, or primary peritoneal cancer treated with carboxyamidotriazole.

OUTLINE: Patients receive oral carboxyamidotriazole daily beginning on day 1. Treatment continues in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity.

PROJECTED ACCRUAL: A total of 19-40 patients will be accrued for this study within 2 years.

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.

A performance measure for rating the ability of a person to perform usual activities, evaluating a patient's progress after a therapeutic procedure, and determining a patient's suitability for therapy. It is used most commonly in the prognosis of cancer therapy, usually after chemotherapy and customarily administered before and after therapy. It was named for Dr. David A. Karnofsky, an American specialist in cancer chemotherapy.

Formation of an artificial opening in a fallopian tube.
