Brief Summary:
The primary objective of this study is to investigate the feasibility, tolerability and safety of surgical debulking and resection with heated intraoperative chemotherapy (HIPEC) followed by repeated intraperitoneal chemotherapy for treatment of recurrent ovarian, primary peritoneal, and fallopian tube carcinomas.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Recurrent Ovarian Cancer Fallopian Tube Cancer Drug: Cisplatin Drug: Doxorubicin Phase 2

Detailed Description:
This is a phase II , open label, single center study of surgery followed by heated intraoperative cisplatin in patients with recurrent ovarian, primary peritoneal or fallopian tube cancers. Approximately twenty patients will receive surgery and intraoperative (hyperthermic) cisplatin followed by four consecutive courses of outpatient intraperitoneal cisplatin and doxorubicin given on days 1 and 8 during a 3 week cycle.

Official Title: A Phase II Combined Modality Protocol of Debulking Surgery With Heated Intraoperative Chemotherapy (HIPEC) Followed by Intraperitoneal Chemotherapy for the Treatment of Recurrent Ovarian, Primary Peritoneal and Fallopian Tube Cancers
Study Start Date : March 2012
Actual Primary Completion Date : April 2014
Actual Study Completion Date : April 2014

Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: Out-Patient Intraperitoneal Chemotherapy
Intraoperative (hyperthermic) cisplatin followed by 4 courses of intraperitoneal cisplatin and doxorubicin given on days 1 & 8 during a 3 week cycle.
Drug: Cisplatin
Cisplatin (75 mg/m2) prepared in 2L normal saline.
Other Names:
  • cis-diamminedichloroplatinum(II) (CDDP)
  • Platinol
  • Platinol-AQ

Drug: Doxorubicin
Doxorubicin (25 mg flat dose) prepared in 500 ml dialysis fluid (glucose or icodextrin-based).
Other Names:
  • hydroxyldaunorubicin
  • Adriamycin

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Adverse Event Rate and/or Laboratory Changes [ Time Frame: 5 years ]
    The adverse event rate and laboratory changes will be used to investigate the safety of surgical debulking with heated intraperitoneal chemotherapy (HIPEC) combined with repeated intraperitoneal chemotherapy.

  2. Toxicity Rating Based on NCI Common Toxicity Criteria [ Time Frame: Up to 5 years ]
    Patients will be rated for toxicity prior to each cycle using the NCI Common Toxicity Criteria (NCICTC; see the CTCAE, Version 4.0).

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Time to Serum Ca-125 Nadir and/or CT Response (RECIST Criteria) [ Time Frame: Up to 5 years (survival) ]
    Efficacy of surgical resection with HIPEC combined with repeated intraperitoneal chemotherapy: The end point will be the objective response rate and progression-free survival as well as the overall survival, if feasible. We will analyze the time to serum Ca 125 nadir and/or CT response based on Recist criteria.

  2. Kaplan-Meier Curves for Patient Overall Survival [ Time Frame: Up to 5 years, survival ]
    Kaplan-Meier analysis will be done using PROC LIFETEST in Statistical Application Software (SAS).

Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   No

Inclusion Criteria:

  1. Patients must have histologically confirmed ovarian, primary peritoneal or fallopian tube carcinoma.
  2. Patients must have measurable evidence of recurrent intraabdominal disease based on Computed tomography (CT scan) findings.
  3. Patients must fulfill the following with regard to prior chemotherapy:

    1. 4 weeks or greater since conclusion of prior chemotherapy;
    2. Prior intraperitoneal chemotherapy with cisplatin is acceptable; and,
    3. Prior systemic chemotherapy is acceptable.
  4. Patients must have a Karnofsky Performance Status of > 70%
  5. Patients must have an estimated life expectancy of at least 16 weeks.
  6. Patient assurance of study compliance and geographic proximity that allows for adequate follow-up.
  7. Patients must have adequate organ function at the screening visit as defined by the following laboratory values:

    Absolute neutrophil count (ANC) ≥1.5 x 109/L Platelet count ≥100 x 109/L Hemoglobin ≥8 g/dL Albumin ≥ 2 g/dL Total Bilirubin ≤ 2.5 x ULN* Alkaline phosphatase ≤ 3.0 x ULN* Aspartate transaminase (AST) and alanine transaminase (ALT) ≤ 3.0 x ULN Creatinine ≤ 1.5 x ULN

  8. Patient must have signed informed consent
  9. Patient must be at least 18 years of age
  10. Following cytoreductive surgery, patient's residual disease should be no larger than 1cm to Receive HIPEC and continue with normothermic IP chemotherapy

Exclusion criteria:

  1. Have active peripheral neuropathy of Grade 2 or greater intensity, as defined by the National Cancer Institute (NCI) Common Toxicity Criteria for Adverse Events (CTCAE; Version 4).
  2. Have experienced myocardial infarction within 6 months prior to enrollment or have New York Hospital Association (NYHA) Class III or IV heart failure (see section 16.4), uncontrolled angina, severe uncontrolled ventricular arrhythmias, or electrocardiographic evidence of acute ischemia or active conduction system abnormalities.
  3. Prior radiation therapy within 4 weeks of enrollment.
  4. Have uncontrolled active systemic infection requiring therapy.
  5. Have a history of allergic reaction attributable to compounds containing boron or mannitol or hypersensitivity reactions to drugs formulated with polysorbate 80.
  6. Have had a serious concomitant systemic disorders (including oncologic emergencies) incompatible with the study (at the discretion of the investigator).
  7. Have had a "currently active" second malignancy other than non-melanoma skin cancer or carcinoma in situ of the cervix are not to be registered. Patients who are not considered to have a "currently active" malignancy if they have completed therapy and are considered by their physician to be at less than 30% risk of relapse.
  8. Have had any investigational agent within 4 weeks before enrollment into the study.
  9. Have a history of a serious medical or psychiatric illness preventing informed consent or, in the opinion of the investigator, would make the patient a poor study candidate.
