Myocet ® - Carboplatine in Ovarian Cancer in Relapse, Sensitive to the Platinum (MYCA)

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: NCT01705158
Recruitment Status : Completed
First Posted : October 12, 2012

Brief Summary:
The purpose of this study is to determine the efficacy and the safety of the association of carboplatine and liposomal doxorubicin in patient with ovarian cancer in relapse, sensitive to platin.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Ovarian Cancer Drug: carboplatin and liposomal doxorubicin Phase 1 Phase 2

Detailed Description:
In front of a shortage of Caelyx, the implementation of an alternative treatment must be considered to treat patients with ovarian cancer in relapse, sensitive to platin: associate the carboplatin with another drug of the family of the doxorubicin: liposomal doxorubicin (Myocet®).

Official Title: Phase Ib / II Trial Evaluating the Association Myocet ® - Carboplatine in Patients Having a Cancer of the Ovary in Relapse, Sensitive to the Platinum
Study Start Date : October 2012
Actual Primary Completion Date : October 2014
Actual Study Completion Date : April 2017

Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: carboplatin and liposomal doxorubicin
carboplatin and liposomal doxorubicin in ovarian cancer in realapse
Drug: carboplatin and liposomal doxorubicin
Carboplatin AUC5 and liposomal doxorubicin 40 or 50 mg/m2, IV (in the vein) on day 1 of each 28 day cycle. Number of Cycles: 6 or until progression or unacceptable toxicity develops.
Other Names:
  • carboplatin
  • liposomal doxorubicin, Myocet

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Determine the control disease rate in 1 year [ Time Frame: 12 months ]
    To determine the proportion of not progressive patients in 1 year (rate of control of the disease or the rate of not progress in 12 months)

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. To estimate the rate of objective answer (CR/PR) [ Time Frame: 2,5 years ]
    • To estimate the survival without progress (PFS)
    • To estimate the overal survival (OS)
    • To estimate the profile of toxicity of the association.
    • Quality of life.
    • Validation of the clearance of CA-125 as predictive marker of the efficiency of the treatment and as factor forecast of the survival.
