RATIONALE: Monoclonal antibodies, such as bevacizumab, can block tumor growth in different ways. Some block the ability of tumor cells to grow and spread. Others find tumor cells and help kill them or carry tumor-killing substances to them. Bevacizumab may also stop the growth of cancer by blocking blood flow to the tumor. Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as docetaxel, work in different ways to kill tumor cells or stop them from growing. Giving bevacizumab together with docetaxel may kill more tumor cells.
PURPOSE: This phase II trial is studying how well giving bevacizumab together with docetaxel works in treating patients with recurrent ovarian epithelial cancer, fallopian tube cancer, or primary peritoneal cancer.
- Determine the 6-month progression-free survival (PFS) and the overall PFS of the investigational treatment regimen.
- Determine the response rate (RR) of the investigational treatment regimen.
- Determine duration of response.
- Assess the safety profile of the investigational treatment regimen of bevacizumab and weekly docetaxel in progressive or recurrent ovarian cancer within 12 months of platinum-based chemotherapy regimen.
- Estimate the overall survival (OS) of patients treated with the investigational treatment regimen.
OUTLINE: This is a multicenter study.
Bevacizumab IV over 30-90 minutes is administered every 3 weeks (day 1 of 21-day cycle) in combination with docetaxel IV over 1 hour each week (days 1and 8 of 21-day cycle) for at least 8 courses in the absence of disease progression or toxicity.
After completion of study treatment, patients are followed periodically for 5 years.

The purpose of the study is to determine whether the administration of bevacizumab and gemcitabine given by IV infusion can prolong survival, delay tumor growth, and/or shrink tumors in pa...
Carboplatin and Paclitaxel With or Without Bevacizumab Compared to Docetaxel, Carboplatin, and Paclitaxel in Treating Patients With Stage II, Stage III, or Stage IV Ovarian Epithelial, Fallopian Tube, or Primary Peritoneal Cavity Carcinoma (Cancer)
RATIONALE: Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as carboplatin, docetaxel, and paclitaxel, work in different ways to stop tumor cells from dividing so they stop growing or die. Combining more ...

Carboplatin, Paclitaxel and Gemcitabine Hydrochloride With or Without Bevacizumab After Surgery in Treating Patients With Recurrent Ovarian Epithelial Cancer, Primary Peritoneal Cavity Cancer, or Fallopian Tube Cancer
This randomized phase III trial studies carboplatin, paclitaxel and gemcitabine hydrochloride when together with or without bevacizumab after surgery to see how well it works in treating p...
Detailed pathologic studies over the past decade suggest a distal fallopian tube origin for the majority of "ovarian" high-grade serous carcinomas (HGSC). This review will summarize molecular alterati...
Current evidences indicate that the fallopian tube plays a major role in the pathogenesis of epithelial ovarian cancer (EOC). Salpingectomy represents a novel and potentially effective risk-reducing o...
Interval debulking surgery (IDS) after neoadjuvant chemotherapy (NAC) is currently one of the preferred treatment options for advanced ovarian, fallopian tube or peritoneal cancer. This study was cond...
Class V Beta tubulin isotype (βV-tubulin) was recently found to have tissue-specific expression patterns in epithelial tissues with secretory function and aberrant expression in tumors. The aims of t...
Primary neuroendocrine tumors of the fallopian tube are extremely rare with a few reported cases of high-grade neuroendocrine carcinoma and a single report of a carcinoid tumor arising in a teratoma. ...
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.
