2016-08-23 12:23:22 | BioPortfolio

Summary

This research study is evaluating two drugs called Nivolumab and Bevacizumab as a possible treatment for relapsed Relapsed Ovarian, Fallopian Tube Or Peritoneal Cancer.

Description

This research study is a Phase II clinical trial. Cancers are recognized by the immune system, and under some circumstances,the immune system may control or even eliminate tumors. An antibody is a natural protein made by our immune system that binds other proteins and molecules to fight infection and its ill effects.

Nivolumab is an experimental antibody drug that may make the immune response more active against Cancer. Bevacizumab is an antibody that works by stopping the formation of blood vessels.

The FDA (the U.S. Food and Drug Administration) has not approved Nivolumab for Relapsed Ovarian, Fallopian Tube Or Peritoneal Cancer but it has been approved for other uses.

Bevacizumab has been FDA approved when used together with chemotherapy for the treatment of Ovarian, Fallopian Tube, Or Primary Peritoneal Cancer that has returned within 6 months of a chemotherapy that contains a platinum drug.

The combination of Nivolumab and Bevacizumab has not been approved by the FDA in any setting.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Portable peritoneal dialysis using the continuous (24 hours a day, 7 days a week) presence of peritoneal dialysis solution in the peritoneal cavity except for periods of drainage and instillation of fresh solution.

Disorder characterized by a wide range of structural changes in PERITONEUM, resulting from fibrogenic or inflammatory processes. Peritoneal fibrosis is a common complication in patients receiving PERITONEAL DIALYSIS and contributes to its gradual decrease in efficiency.

Tumors or cancer of the PERITONEUM.

Natural openings in the subdiaphragmatic lymphatic plexus in the PERITONEUM, delimited by adjacent mesothelial cells. Peritoneal stomata constitute the principal pathways for the drainage of intraperitoneal contents from the PERITONEAL CAVITY to the LYMPHATIC SYSTEM.

Uptake of substances from the PERITONEAL CAVITY.
