Paclitaxel in Treating Patients With Ovarian Stromal Cancer

2014-08-27 03:57:25 | 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 paclitaxel in treating patients who have ovarian stromal cancer.

Description

OBJECTIVES:

- Determine the clinical response to paclitaxel in patients with ovarian stromal cancer.

- Determine toxicity of this drug in these patients.

- Determine the value of inhibin for predicting response in these patients when treated with this regimen.

OUTLINE: This is a multicenter study. Patients are stratified according to prior treatment (yes vs no).

Patients receive paclitaxel IV over 3 hours on day 1. Treatment continues every 21 days in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity.

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

PROJECTED ACCRUAL: A total of 45 patients will be accrued for this study.

This study will try to determine whether or not certain genes are responsible for the huge variation in toxicity and effect observed between patients treated with paclitaxel (chemotherapeu...

A Multi-Institutional Phase II Study of Cyclophosphamide, Paclitaxel, Cisplatin With G-CSF for Patients With Newly Diagnosed Advanced Stage Ovarian Cancer

A supra-additive cytotoxic effect was seen when CAI and paclitaxel were given to human ovarian cancer cells sequentially in tissue culture. We have demonstrated that CAI given for 8 days ...

Carboplatin Plus Paclitaxel With or Without Continued Low-Dose Paclitaxel in Treating Patients With Early-Stage Ovarian Cancer

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. It is not ye...

A Study of VB-111 Combined With Paclitaxel vs. Paclitaxel for Treatment of Recurrent Platinum-Resistant Ovarian Cancer (OVAL)

The purpose of this phase 3, randomized, multicenter study is to compare VB-111 plus paclitaxel to paclitaxel in adult patients with Recurrent Platinum-Resistant Ovarian Cancer.

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.
