Combination Chemotherapy and Peripheral Stem Cell Transplantation in Treating Patients With Epithelial Ovarian Cancer or Primary Peritoneal Cancer
RATIONALE: Drugs used in chemotherapy use different ways to stop tumor cells from dividing so they stop growing or die. Combining chemotherapy with peripheral stem cell transplantation may allow the doctor to give higher doses of chemotherapy drugs and kill more tumor cells.
PURPOSE: Phase I/II trial to study the effectiveness of amifostine, carboplatin and cyclophosphamide, followed by peripheral stem cell transplantation, in treating patients with epithelial ovarian cancer or primary peritoneal cancer.
Primary Peritoneal Cavity Cancer
Drug: amifostine trihydrate
Procedure: peripheral blood stem cell transplantation
|Study Design:||Endpoint Classification: Safety Study
Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment
Masking: Open Label
Primary Purpose: Treatment
|Official Title:||A Phase I/II Dose Escalation Trial of Carboplatin With Amifostine Pretreatment to Augment High Dose Cyclophosphamide With Autologous Peripheral Blood Stem Cell Support for the Treatment of Patients With Epithelial Ovarian Cancer|
- Maximum tolerated dose [ Time Frame: 4 years ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
|Study Start Date:||December 1996|
|Study Completion Date:||October 2001|
|Primary Completion Date:||December 2000 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)|
Experimental: Arm A
Cyclophosphamide (40mg/kg/day on days -6, -5 and -4), Carboplatin (1600, 1700 or 1800 mg/m2 on days -6, -5, -4 and -3), Amifostine (910 mg/m2 on days -6, -5, -4 and -3), Peripheral blood stem cell transplantation (day 0), G-CSF (beginning day 4)
|Biological: filgrastim Drug: amifostine trihydrate Drug: carboplatin Drug: cyclophosphamide Procedure: peripheral blood stem cell transplantation|
OBJECTIVES: I. Determine the maximum tolerated dose of high dose carboplatin with a fixed dose of high dose cyclophosphamide with amifostine pretreatment, and peripheral blood stem cell rescue in patients with ovarian epithelial cancer. II. Monitor engraftment kinetics such as granulocyte and platelet recovery. III. Determine the toxic effects of this regimen in this patient population. IV. Document the response of this patient population to this regimen in terms of time to progression, event free survival, and overall survival.
OUTLINE: This is a dose escalation study. Patients undergo apheresis over 2-4 days to mobilize peripheral blood stem cells (PBSC). They then receive amifostine IV over 15 minutes. Fifteen minutes later, carboplatin is administered over 30 minutes on days -6 through -3. Cyclophosphamide IV is administered 1 hour after the carboplatin infusion is completed on days -6 through -4. PBSC are infused on day 0. Filgrastim (G-CSF) is administered beginning on day 4. Cohorts of 3-6 patients are treated at each dose level. At least 15 days must pass between the day of PBSC infusion and the next dose escalation. The dose limiting toxicity (DLT) is defined as the dose producing grade 3 or 4 nonhematologic toxicity in 2 of 6 patients. The maximum tolerated dose (MTD) is defined as one dose level below the DLT dose. At least 6 patients are treated at the MTD. Patients are followed monthly for 6 months, every 2-3 months for 1 year, and annually until death.
PROJECTED ACCRUAL: This study will accrue 28 patients over 2 years.
