  Purpose

The purpose of this research study is to evaluate how patients with newly diagnosed advanced ovarian, fallopian tube, primary peritoneal or papillary serous Mullerian tumor respond to Avastin and erlotinib, or Avastin alone over 1 year. These drugs have been used in the treatment of other types of cancers and information from those studies suggests that these agents may help to treat the cancers studied here.

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • To examine the progression free survival of Avastin and erlotinib (AE) or Avastin (A) as consolidation therapy at predefined time. [ Time Frame: 3 years ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • To examine the toxicity between the two consolidative regimens AE versus A. [ Time Frame: 3 years ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • To assess the response to CTA. [ Time Frame: 3 years ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Estimated Enrollment: 60
Study Start Date: August 2007
Estimated Study Completion Date: September 2013
Estimated Primary Completion Date: September 2013 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: 1
Avastin every three weeks for 1 year
Drug: Avastin
Given every three weeks for 1 year
Drug: paclitaxel
Given intravenously on Day 1 of each cycle for 6 cycles (each cycle lasts 21 days)
Drug: carboplatin
Given intravenously on Day 1 of each cycle for 6 cycles (a cycle lasts 21 days)
Experimental: 2
Avastin every three weeks for 1 year and erlotinib every day for one year
Drug: Avastin
Given every three weeks for 1 year
Drug: erlotinib
Every day for one year
Drug: paclitaxel
Given intravenously on Day 1 of each cycle for 6 cycles (each cycle lasts 21 days)
Drug: carboplatin
Given intravenously on Day 1 of each cycle for 6 cycles (a cycle lasts 21 days)

Detailed Description:
  • Each treatment cycle lasts three weeks (21 days). Participants will receive only paclitaxel and carboplatin on Day 1 of Cycle 1. They will receive paclitaxel, carboplatin and Avastin for cycles 2-6. All of these drugs are given intravenously.
  • After participants receive six cycles of treatment with paclitaxel and carboplatin, they will be randomized into one of two study groups. Group 1 will receive treatment with Avastin every 3 weeks for 1 year. Group 2 will receive Avastin every 3 weeks for 1 year and take erlotinib orally every day for 1 year. This second part will occur about one month after the second look surgery (see below).
  • If there is no cancer seen on a scan that is performed after 6 cycles of paclitaxel, carboplatin and Avastin, second look surgery will be discussed. The second look surgery is to see if there is any cancer at the end of treatment that was not seen by CT scan or MRI. This surgery will take place about one month after the 6th cycle of treatment if it is recommended.
  • During all treatment cycles participants will have a physical exam and be asked questions about their general health and specific questions about any problems they are experiencing.
  • Blood tests including chemistry, hematology, CA-125, as well as other tests to measure any additional effect of the study drug or disease status, will be done prior to each cycle of treatment and during the follow-up period.
  • Assessment of the tumor by CT scan or MRI will be done as follows: After every three cycles of chemotherapy; every three months during consolidation treatment (treatment with Avastin OR Avastin and erlotinib); every three months after the end of study treatment for 1 year, unless the tumor grows.
