Paclitaxel 135mg/m2 IV Day 1 every 21 days x 6 cycles, Cisplatin 75mg/m2 IP Day 2 every 21 days x 6 cycles, Bevacizumab 15mg/kg Day 1 IV every 21 days x 5 cycles (beginning with cycle 2)
Avastin 15mg/kg IV every 21 days x 12 cycles
Ovarian cancer is the leading cause of death from gynecologic cancer in the United States. The high death rate stems from late presentation and tumor that has spread beyond the ovary at the time of diagnoses.
Ovarian cancer typically spreads throughout the peritoneal cavity. Three randomized clinical trial have recently demonstrated the superiority of intraperitoneal(IP) over intravenous platinum based chemotherapy in optimally debulked advance ovarian cancer. The success of Bevacizumab in metastatic colorectal cancer has led to trials evaluating its' efficacy in advanced ovarian cancer. Based on the mechanism of action of Bevacizumab, there may be benefit of extended therapy with this agent.
