Trial Description


RATIONALE: Drugs used in chemotherapy use different ways to stop tumor cells from dividing so they stop growing or die. Combining more than one drug may kill more tumor cells. It is not yet known if carboplatin is more effective with or without liposomal doxorubicin in treating recurrent ovarian epithelial or primary peritoneal cancer.

PURPOSE: Randomized phase III trial to determine the effectiveness of carboplatin with or without liposomal doxorubicin in treating patients who have recurrent ovarian epithelial or primary peritoneal cancer.

Further Study Information


  • Compare overall survival of patients with platinum-sensitive recurrent ovarian epithelial or primary peritoneal cancer treated with carboplatin with or without pegylated doxorubicin HCl liposome.
  • Compare progression-free survival, confirmed complete response rates, and time to treatment failure in patients treated with these regimens.
  • Compare the toxicity of these regimens in these patients.

OUTLINE: This is a randomized, multicenter study. Patients are stratified according to disease measurability (elevated CA 125 only vs nonmeasurable disease only with or without elevated CA 125 vs measurable disease), number of disease sites (2 or fewer vs 3 or more), and serous tumor histology (yes vs no). Patients are randomized to 1 of 2 treatment arms.

  • Arm I: Patients receive carboplatin IV over 15 minutes and pegylated doxorubicin HCl liposome IV over 1 hour on day 1.
  • Arm II: Patients receive carboplatin IV as in arm I. Treatment in both arms repeats every 4 weeks for a total of 15 courses in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity.

Patients are followed at 4 weeks, every 6 months for 3 years, and then annually for 7 years.

PROJECTED ACCRUAL: A total of 900 patients will be accrued for this study within 4 years.

Eligibility Criteria


  • Histologically confirmed ovarian epithelial carcinoma
  • Stage III or IV disease at time of initial staging laparotomy
  • Primary peritoneal and mixed Mullerian tumors allowed
  • No borderline ovarian tumors
  • Disease progression or recurrence after a progression-free and platinum-free interval of 6-24 months after completion of first-line platinum-based chemotherapy (either single agent or combination therapy)
  • Disease progression or recurrence based solely on CA 125 elevation allowed, provided that one of the following is true:
  • Prior baseline CA 125 greater than 35 U/mL and subsequent normalization of no greater than 35 U/mL must have CA 125 greater than 2 times upper limit of normal (ULN) on 2 occasions at least 1 week apart
  • Prior baseline CA 125 greater than 35 U/mL that never normalized must have CA 125 greater than 2 times the nadir value on 2 occasions at least 1 week apart
  • Prior normal baseline CA 125 (no greater than 35 U/mL) must show CA 125 greater than 2 times ULN on 2 occasions at least 1 week apart
  • No known brain metastases
