Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Determine anti-tumor activity as measured by surviving progression-free [ Time Frame: Progression-free survival for at least 6 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Overall survival [ Time Frame: Until death ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Frequency of response as measured by RECIST criteria (imaging) [ Time Frame: Tumor response measured prior to every other cycle of therapy ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Correlate patterns of gene expression as assessed by microarrays [ Time Frame: Correlative studies when specimens available ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Correlate hypoxia inducible factor 1 (HIF-1) and hypoxia induced gene expression as measured by laboratory studies [ Time Frame: When specimens available ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Assess potential role of FDG-PET imaging as early indicator of response [ Time Frame: Prior to treatment, prior to cycle 3 and at completion of treatment ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Detailed Description:

Cervical cancer remains a major cause of morbidity and mortality in women. Chemoradiation has led to improvements in survival, but the prognosis for patients with recurrent, metastatic cervical cancer remains poor. There is the need for more effective treatments for the management of recurrent/persistent cervical cancer. Angiogenesis appears to play an important role in cervical cancer development and progression, therefore VEGF inhibition appears to be a rationale therapeutic strategy for cervical cancer. There is increasing evidence that combining an anti-angiogenic agent with either cytotoxic chemotherapy or radiation enhances anti-tumor activity. This study combines the current most active chemotheraputic regimen for cervical cancer (cisplatin + topotecan) with an anti-angiogenic agent.
