Nitrocamptothecin in Treating Patients With Recurrent or Metastatic Ovarian Epithelial or Primary Peritoneal Cancer
RATIONALE: Drugs used in chemotherapy use different ways to stop tumor cells from dividing so they stop growing or die.
PURPOSE: Phase II trial to study the effectiveness of nitrocamptothecin in treating patients who have recurrent or metastatic ovarian epithelial or primary peritoneal cancer.
Primary Peritoneal Cavity Cancer
|Study Design:||Primary Purpose: Treatment|
|Official Title:||A Phase II Evaluation Of 9-Nitro-Camptothecin In The Third-Line Treatment Of Recurrent Ovarian Or Primary Peritoneal Cancer|
- Determine the antitumor activity of nitrocamptothecin in patients with recurrent or metastatic ovarian epithelial or primary peritoneal cancer.
- Determine the nature and degree of toxicity of this regimen in these patients.
OUTLINE: Patients receive oral nitrocamptothecin on days 1-5. Treatment continues every 7 days in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity.
Patients are followed at 2 weeks, then every 3 months for 2 years, and then every 6 months for 3 years.
PROJECTED ACCRUAL: Approximately 19-51 patients will be accrued for this study within 22 months.
