Eribulin Mesylate in Treating Patients With Recurrent Ovarian Epithelial, Primary Peritoneal Cavity, or Fallopian Tube Cancer

The safety and scientific validity of this study is the responsibility of the study sponsor and investigators. Listing a study does not mean it has been evaluated by the U.S. Federal Government. Read our disclaimer for details. Identifier: NCT00334893

Brief Summary:
This phase II trial is studying how well eribulin mesylate works in treating patients with recurrent ovarian epithelial, primary peritoneal cavity, or fallopian tube cancer. Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as eribulin mesylate, work in different ways to stop the growth of tumor cells, either by killing the cells or by stopping them from dividing.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Fallopian Tube Cancer Primary Peritoneal Cavity Cancer Recurrent Ovarian Epithelial Cancer Drug: eribulin mesylate Phase 2

Detailed Description:


I. Determine the frequency of objective response (complete and partial responses) in patients with recurrent ovarian epithelial, primary peritoneal cavity, or fallopian tube cancer treated with E7389 (eribulin mesylate).


II. Determine the toxicity profile of this drug in these patients.

OUTLINE: This is a multicenter study. Patients are stratified according to prior platinum sensitivity (yes vs no).

Patients receive eribulin mesylate intravenously (IV) over 15 minutes on days 1 and 8. Courses repeat every 21 days in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity.

After completion of study treatment, patients are followed for 4 weeks.

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Objective Response to Treatment With Eribulin Mesylate in Patients With Recurrent Ovarian, Fallopian Tube, or Peritoneal Cancer. [ Time Frame: up to a total of a year ]
    Per Response Evaluation Criteria In Solid Tumors Criteria (RECIST v1.0) for target lesions and assessed by MRI: Complete Response (CR), Disappearance of all target lesions; Partial Response (PR), >=30% decrease in the sum of the longest diameter of target lesions; Overall Response (OR) = CR + PR.

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Toxicity Profile of Eribulin Mesylate in Patients With Recurrent Ovarian, Fallopian Tube, or Peritoneal Cancer [ Time Frame: From the time of their first treatment with eribulin mesylate ]
    Measured by NCI CTCAE Version 4.0. The 95% confidence intervals should be provided. Please see adverse events.
