Prolonged Emend in a Study (NYU 03-67) of Oxaliplatin and Topotecan in Previously Treated Ovarian Cancer

2014-08-27 03:17:49 | BioPortfolio

Summary

The investigators propose to totally abolish the emesis (vomiting) associated with the regimen of oxaliplatin + topotecan by adding a daily administration of aprepitant (Emend) for 17 days to the HT3 blocker routinely given on days 1 and 15.

Description

Patients enrolled in NCT0031361, NYU 03-67 (A Phase II study of Oxaliplatin combined with continuous infusion topotecan as chemotherapy for patients with previously treated ovarian cancer NCI #6317) will receive oxaliplatin 85mg/m2 as a 2-hr IV infusion on D1, 15 and topotecan 0.4mg/m2/day as a continuous infusion for 14 days beginning on D1 (D1-15) on a 4 week cycle.

On days 1 and 15 of the first cycle, patients will also receive IV ondansetron 32 mg and 10mg of dexamethasone. Emend 125 mg will be given on day 1; on days 2-17, patients will be given daily oral 80mg Emend without dexamethasone.

On cycles 2-6 patients opting to continue to receive Emend as above: Emend 125 mg will be given on day 1; on days 2-17, patients will be given daily oral 80mg Emend without dexamethasone.

Following cycle 1, Emend will be given in its conventional schedule (i.e., d 1-3, and d 15-17) unless after discussion with the Principal Investigator, the patient's request to receive drug as in cycle 1 is deemed desirable and safe to enter the optional extension arm.

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.
