Docetaxel in Treating Patients With Recurrent or Refractory Ovarian or Primary Peritoneal Cancer

2014-08-27 03:58:25 | 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 docetaxel in treating patients with recurrent or refractory ovarian or primary peritoneal cancer.

Description

OBJECTIVES: I. Estimate the antitumor activity of docetaxel in patients with paclitaxel- and platinum-resistant, recurrent or refractory, ovarian epithelial or primary peritoneal cancer who have failed on higher priority treatment protocols. II. Determine the nature and degree of toxicity of docetaxel in this patient population.

OUTLINE: Patients receive docetaxel as a 1 hour continuous intravenous infusion. Courses are repeated every 21 days. Treatment continues in the absence of unacceptable toxic effects or disease progression. All patients are followed every 3 months for 2 years, every 6 months for 3 years, and then until death.

PROJECTED ACCRUAL: A total of 23-56 patients will be accrued for this study.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Autosomal dominant HEREDITARY CANCER SYNDROME in which a mutation most often in either BRCA1 or BRCA2 is associated with a significantly increased risk for breast and ovarian cancers.

An antineoplastic agent used to treat ovarian cancer. It works by inhibiting DNA TOPOISOMERASES, TYPE I.

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.

A homolog of p53 TUMOR SUPPRESSOR PROTEIN that encodes full-length trans-activating and N-terminally-truncated (DeltaN) isoforms. Detection of splice variants and isoforms in the nervous system (human TELENCEPHALON, CHOROID PLEXUS; CEREBROSPINAL FLUID), embryonic tissue, human BREAST CANCER; OVARIAN CANCER, suggest roles in cellular differentiation.
