Clinical Trials (PDQ®)
|Phase III||Treatment||Completed||18 and over||NCI||GOG-111|
I. Compare response rate, response duration, and survival of patients with suboptimal Stage III and Stage IV ovarian carcinoma randomly assigned to treatment with cisplatin/taxol vs. cisplatin/cyclophosphamide. II. Further evaluate the toxicities of cisplatin/taxol in this patient population. III. Compare the therapeutic index of these two combinations in patients with ovarian carcinoma.
Histologically documented suboptimal Stage III (i.e., greater than 1 cm in diameter) or Stage IV epithelial ovarian carcinoma The following histologies are acceptable: Serous adenocarcinoma Mucinous adenocarcinoma Clear cell adenocarcinoma Endometrioid adenocarcinoma Undifferentiated carcinoma Mixed epithelial carcinoma Borderline carcinoma and "probably malignant" tumors are excluded Measurable disease preferred but not required Cytologic confirmation required if entry is based on malignant pleural effusion (35 mm slide of cytology specimen must be submitted) Postoperative CT scan required and report available at randomization for patients with nonmeasurable disease
Biologic therapy: Not specified Chemotherapy: No prior chemotherapy Endocrine therapy: Not specified Radiotherapy: No prior radiotherapy Surgery: No more than 6 weeks beyond optimal surgery for ovarian cancer consisting minimally of exploratory laparotomy with biopsy and, when appropriate, TAH/BSO
Age: 18 and over Performance status: GOG 0-2 Hematopoietic: WBC at least 3,000 Platelets at least 100,000 Hepatic: Bilirubin no more than 2 x normal SGOT no more than 2 x normal No acute hepatitis Renal: Creatinine no more than 2.0 mg/dl Cardiovascular: No current requirement for anti-arrhythmic medication No history of cardiac arrhythmia Other: No septicemia or severe infection No severe GI bleeding No second malignancy except nonmelanomatous skin cancer
It is estimated that a total of 360 patients will be entered over about 2.5 years.
Randomized study. Arm I: 2-Drug Combination Chemotherapy. Cisplatin, CACP, NSC-119875; Cyclophosphamide, CTX, NSC-26271. Arm II: 2-Drug Combination Chemotherapy. CACP; Taxol, TAX, NSC-125973.Published Results

Note: The purpose of most clinical trials listed in this database is to test new cancer treatments, or new methods of diagnosing, screening, or preventing cancer. Because all potentially harmful side effects are not known before a trial is conducted, dose and schedule modifications may be required for participants if they develop side effects from the treatment or test. The therapy or test described in this clinical trial is intended for use by clinical oncologists in carefully structured settings, and may not prove to be more effective than standard treatment. A responsible investigator associated with this clinical trial should be consulted before using this protocol.
