Doxorubicin has been used to treat ovarian cancer as part of different combination therapies, but high cumulative doses should be avoided because of the risk of cardiotoxicity. Pegylated Lyposomal Doxorubicin (Caelyx) has been developed to reduce the risk of cardiotoxicity. The purpose of this study is to evaluate the safety and efficacy of Caelyx in combination with carboplatin in women with recurrent ovarian cancer.

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Complete response rate, according to RECIST criteria; Partial response rate, according to RECIST criteria [ Time Frame: Complete or partial response: re-evaluation 4 weeks later to confirm response; Upon completion of chemotherapy: follow-up every 2 months until documentation of progressive disease; All patients will be followed for a minimum of one year for survival ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Safety and tolerability; Duration of response; CA-125 response; Time to progression; Overall survival [ Time Frame: All patients will be followed for a minimum of one year for survival ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]

Enrollment: 58
Study Start Date: October 2003
Study Completion Date: September 2007
Primary Completion Date: September 2007 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: Single Arm
Caelyx 30 mg/m2 in combination with carboplatin dosed to target AUC of 5 mg/mL.min.
Drug: Pegylated Lyposomal Doxorubicin
Subjects will receive Caleyx 30 mg/m2 intravenously on Day 1 of each 4-week cycle, during 6 cycles. Patients still achieving clinical benefit after a total of 6 cycles may continue therapy.
Other Name: SCH 200746
Drug: Carboplatin
Subjects will receive carboplatin dosed to target AUC of 5 mg/mL.min, intravenously, on Day 1 of each 4-week cycle, after the Caelyx infusion, during 6 cycles. Patients still achieving clinical benefit after a total of 6 cycles may continue therapy.
