Prolonged Emend in a Study (NYU 03-67) of Oxaliplatin and Topotecan in Previously Treated Ovarian Cancer
The investigators propose to totally abolish the emesis (vomiting) associated with the regimen of oxaliplatin + topotecan by adding a daily administration of aprepitant (Emend) for 17 days to the HT3 blocker routinely given on days 1 and 15.

|Official Title:||Pilot Study Exploring the Efficacy of Prolonged Emend to Reduce Nausea and Vomiting During Treatment in a Phase II Study (NYU 03-67) of Oxaliplatin Combined With Continuous Infusion Topotecan for Patients With Previously Treated Ovarian Cancer|
- to determine whether daily administration of Emend will prevent emesis during cycle 1 in patients with previously treated ovarian cancer enrolled in NYU 03-67 (oxaliplatin combined with continuous infusion topotecan) [ Time Frame: 28 days (1 cycle) ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
|Study Start Date:||December 2010|
|Estimated Study Completion Date:||December 2013|
|Estimated Primary Completion Date:||December 2012 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)|
Patients enrolled to NYU 03-67 will be receiving Oxaliplatin 85 mg/m2 IV over 120 minutes on Day 1 and 15 Topotecan 0.4mg/m2/day CIV from D1 to 15 (in addition to the assigned intervention)
Cycle 1, day 2 to 17: Emend 80mg once daily in the morning on days 2 through 17 Cycles 2-6 (optional extension arm): same Emend dosing
Other Name: Emend
Patients enrolled in NCT0031361, NYU 03-67 (A Phase II study of Oxaliplatin combined with continuous infusion topotecan as chemotherapy for patients with previously treated ovarian cancer NCI #6317) will receive oxaliplatin 85mg/m2 as a 2-hr IV infusion on D1, 15 and topotecan 0.4mg/m2/day as a continuous infusion for 14 days beginning on D1 (D1-15) on a 4 week cycle.
On days 1 and 15 of the first cycle, patients will also receive IV ondansetron 32 mg and 10mg of dexamethasone. Emend 125 mg will be given on day 1; on days 2-17, patients will be given daily oral 80mg Emend without dexamethasone.
On cycles 2-6 patients opting to continue to receive Emend as above: Emend 125 mg will be given on day 1; on days 2-17, patients will be given daily oral 80mg Emend without dexamethasone.
Following cycle 1, Emend will be given in its conventional schedule (i.e., d 1-3, and d 15-17) unless after discussion with the Principal Investigator, the patient's request to receive drug as in cycle 1 is deemed desirable and safe to enter the optional extension arm.
