Bryostatin 1 in Treating Patients With Ovarian Epithelial Cancer
A Phase II Trial of Bryostatin 1 in Ovarian Cancer Administered by Weekly 24 Hour Intravenous Infusion

RATIONALE: Drugs used in chemotherapy use different ways to stop cancer cells from dividing so they stop growing or die.

PURPOSE: Phase II trial to study the effectiveness of bryostatin 1 in treating patients who have ovarian epithelial cancer that has not responded to previous chemotherapy.

OBJECTIVES:

  • Evaluate the antitumor activity and toxicity of bryostatin 1 in patients with platinum resistant ovarian epithelial cancer.
  • Determine the response rate in patients treated with this regimen.

OUTLINE: This is a multicenter study.

Patients receive bryostatin 1 IV over 24 hours. Treatment repeats weekly for 8 courses in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity. Patients achieving stable or regressive disease may receive additional treatment.

Patients are followed for at least 4 weeks after treatment, then every 3 months.

PROJECTED ACCRUAL: A total of 14-25 patients will be accrued for this study.
