Irinotecan in Treating Patients With Refractory Ovarian Epithelial, Primary Peritoneal, or Fallopian Tube 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 irinotecan in treating patients who have refractory ovarian epithelial, primary peritoneal, or fallopian tube cancer.
Fallopian Tube Cancer
Primary Peritoneal Cavity Cancer

- Determine the objective confirmed and unconfirmed complete and partial response rates of patients with platinum- and taxane-refractory ovarian epithelial, primary peritoneal, or fallopian tube cancer treated with irinotecan.
- Determine the progression-free and overall survival of patients treated with this drug.
- Evaluate the qualitative and quantitative toxic effects of this drug in these patients.
OUTLINE: Patients receive irinotecan IV over 90 minutes on days 1 and 8. Courses repeat every 21 days in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity.
Patients are followed every 6 months for 3 years.
PROJECTED ACCRUAL: A total of 20-40 patients will be accrued for this study.
