  Purpose

This is a Phase 2 randomized study with two treatment arms to compare the effectiveness of oregovomab (a murine monoclonal antibody directed against CA125) when combined with first-line chemotherapy (carboplatin and paclitaxel) to first-line chemotherapy (carboplatin and paclitaxel) alone in female patients with advanced ovarian cancer. This study is to confirm previous results that showed oregovomab was able to help the body to produce an immune response to CA125 (a target that has been identified on ovarian cancer cells) in patients with stage III-IV ovarian cancer when they were receiving chemotherapy for their disease. The primary aim of the study is to see how well these patients with advanced ovarian cancer make an immune response to CA125 by using a specific test (ELISPOT assay) of the patient's blood. The study will also look at the side effects of the oregovomab, other immune response parameters, how well the patients respond to the treatment of their disease (how long it takes to show that their disease has progressed and how long these patients survive overall).

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Change in CA125 ELISPOT assay response for cytotoxic T cell antigen specific immunity induction to end of first-line chemotherapy [ Time Frame: At Baseline (up to 4 weeks before Cycle 1), Cycle 5 (approximately 12 weeks after Cycle 1) and termination (approxmately 25 weeks after Cycle 1) ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Time to clinical relapse [ Time Frame: Study termination (approxmiately 25 weeks after Cycle 1) ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    The time period from the date of randomization to the date of confirmed relapse as defined by clinical, radiologic, and/or pathologic evaluations.

  • Immune parameters: HAMA (human anti-mouse antibody) titers and DTH (delayed type hypersensitivity) [ Time Frame: HAMA: screening, Cycle 3 (approx. 6 weeks after Cycle 1), Cycle 5 (approx. 12 weeks after Cycle 1), Cycle 5 plus 12 weeks (approx. 24 weeks after Cycle 1) DTH: screening and termination (approx. 25 weeks after Cycle 1) ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Laboratory test for (HAMA) human anti-mouse antibody present in patients' sera. DTH (delayed type hypersensitivity) is an on-site test conducted by the investigator by injecting a small amount of the Oregovomab product and three other antigens (mumps, tetanus, and Candida) into the skin of the patient and observing the effects.

  • Clinical response [ Time Frame: Up to three years after enrollment in the study ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Patients will be categorized into one of the following: increasing disease, stable disease, or progression [measurable disease studies]

  • Survival [ Time Frame: Up to three years after enrollment in the study ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    The observed length of life from entry into the study to death or the date of last contact

  • Change in vital signs from baseline to end of study [ Time Frame: At Baseline (up to 4 weeks before Cycle 1), Cycle 3 (approximately 6 weeks after Cycle 1), Cycle 5 (approximately 12 weeks after Cycle 1) and Cycle 5 plus 12 weeks (approxmately 24 weeks after Cycle 1) ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
    The following vital signs will be obtained: heart rate, respiratory rate, blood pressure, temperature

  • Change in clinical laboratory results from baseline to end of chemotherapy [ Time Frame: At Baseline (up to 4 weeks before Cycle 1), Cycle 3 (approximately 6 weeks after Cycle 1), Cycle 5 (approximately 12 weeks after Cycle 1), Cycle 5 plus 12 weeks (approxmately 24 weeks after Cycle 1) and termination (approximately 25 weeks after Cycle 1) ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
    The following clinical laboratory results will be obtained: hematology (White Blood Cells [total count and differential], hemoglobin, hematocrit, Red Blood Cells), biochemistry (albumin, alkaline phosphatase, alanine aminotransferase, aspartate aminotransferase, bilirubin [total], lactate dehydrogenase, protein, creatinine, urea, bicarbonate, chloride, potassium, sodium, calcium, phosphate, glucose, uric acid) and urinalysis (dipstick, pH, specific gravity, bilirubin, blood, protein, glucose, ketones, urobilinogen, microscopic evaluation)
