RATIONALE: Drugs used in chemotherapy use different ways to stop tumor cells from dividing so they stop growing or die.
OBJECTIVES: I. Determine the response rate and time to treatment failure in patients with recurrent ovarian epithelial, fallopian tube, or primary peritoneal carcinoma treated with oral capecitabine. II. Determine the tolerability and safety of this regimen in these patients.
OUTLINE: Patients receive oral capecitabine twice daily for 14 days. Treatment continues every 3 weeks in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity.
PROJECTED ACCRUAL: A total of 14-35 patients will be accrued for this study.
Primary Purpose: Treatment
Fallopian Tube Cancer

RATIONALE: Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as docetaxel and capecitabine, work in different ways to stop the growth of tumor cells, either by killing the cells or by stopping them from di...
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...
Carboplatin and Paclitaxel or Oxaliplatin and Capecitabine With or Without Bevacizumab as First-Line Therapy in Treating Patients With Newly Diagnosed Stage II-IV or Recurrent Stage I Epithelial Ovarian or Fallopian Tube Cancer
This randomized phase III trial studies carboplatin given together with paclitaxel with or without bevacizumab to see how well it works compared with oxaliplatin given together with capeci...
This study will evaluate the impact of low dose aspirin on normal fallopian tube fimbriae in women who have surgery to have their fallopian tubes removed. Participants will take a low dose...
RATIONALE: Giving the p53 gene for ovarian, fallopian tube, or peritoneal cancer may inhibit tumor growth. Giving the gene directly into the peritoneum may kill more cancer cells. PURPOSE...
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...
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...
A recent paradigm shift in ovarian cancer research is the finding that many ovarian cancers may originate from fallopian tube epithelial (FTE) cells. As tissue stem and progenitor cells often serve as...
Diseases involving the FALLOPIAN TUBES including neoplasms (FALLOPIAN TUBE NEOPLASMS); SALPINGITIS; tubo-ovarian abscess; and blockage.
A deoxycytidine derivative and fluorouracil PRODRUG that is used as an ANTINEOPLASTIC ANTIMETABOLITE in the treatment of COLON CANCER; BREAST CANCER and GASTRIC CANCER.
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.
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...
