PURPOSE: This phase II clinical trial is studying the side effects and how well EGEN-001 works in treating patients with persistent or recurrent ovarian epithelial cancer, fallopian tube cancer, or primary peritoneal cancer.
- To estimate the proportion of patients who survive progression-free for ≥ 6 months and the proportion of patients who have objective tumor response (complete or partial) in patients with persistent or recurrent ovarian epithelial, fallopian tube, or primary peritoneal carcinoma treated with intraperitoneal EGEN-001.
- To determine the frequency and severity of adverse events as assessed by the NCI CTCAE version 4.0.
- To determine the duration of progression-free survival and overall survival.
- To collect blood and peritoneal lavage fluid from patients that will be stored for future research.
OUTLINE: This is a multicenter study.
Patients receive intraperitoneal EGEN-001 on days 1, 8, 15, and 22. Courses repeat every 4 weeks in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity.
Blood and peritoneal fluid samples may be collected at baseline for translational research.
After completion of study treatment, patients are followed up every 3 months for 2 years and then every 6 months for 3 years.
Masking: Open Label, Primary Purpose: Treatment

This pilot clinical trial studies how well intravital microscopy works in evaluating patients with primary peritoneal, fallopian tube, or stage IA-IV ovarian cancer. Intravital microscopic...
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...
Recent evidence has suggested that the fallopian tube may often be the site of origin for the most common and lethal form of ovarian cancer. As a result, many Colleges of Obstetrics & Gynecology, incl...
Papillomas of the fallopian tube are exceedingly rare benign tumors, and only very few cases have been reported in the literature. Clinically, they may present as a mass lesion or occur without sympto...
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...
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.
Formation of an artificial opening in a fallopian tube.
A pair of highly specialized muscular canals extending from the UTERUS to its corresponding OVARY. They provide the means for OVUM collection, and the site for the final maturation of gametes and FERTILIZATION. The fallopian tube consists of an interstitium, an isthmus, an ampulla, an infundibulum, and fimbriae. Its wall consists of three histologic layers: serous, muscular, and an internal mucosal layer lined with both ciliated and secretory cells.
Biological therapy involves the use of living organisms, substances derived from living organisms, or laboratory-produced versions of such substances to treat disease. Some biological therapies for cancer use vaccines or bacteria to stimulate the body&rs...
An antibody is a protein produced by the body's immune system when it detects harmful substances, called antigens. Examples of antigens include microorganisms (such as bacteria, fungi, parasites, and viruses) and chemicals. Antibodies may be produc...
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...
