|Study Design:||Primary Purpose: Treatment|
|Official Title:||A Phase II Trial of Bryostatin 1 in Ovarian Cancer Administered by Weekly 24 Hour Intravenous Infusion|
|Study Start Date:||July 1999|
- Evaluate the antitumor activity and toxicity of bryostatin 1 in patients with platinum resistant ovarian epithelial cancer.
- Determine the response rate in patients treated with this regimen.
OUTLINE: This is a multicenter study.
Patients receive bryostatin 1 IV over 24 hours. Treatment repeats weekly for 8 courses in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity. Patients achieving stable or regressive disease may receive additional treatment.
