Study Title:GOG 0213: A Phase III Randomized Controlled Clinical Trial of Carboplatin and Paclitaxel (or Gemcitabine) Alone or in Combination With Bevacizumab (NSC #704865, IND #113912) Followed by Bevacizumab and Secondary Cytoreductive Surgery in Platinum-Sensitive, Recurrent Ovarian, Peritoneal Primary and Fallopian Tube Cancer. NCI-Supplied Agents: Bevacizumab (NSC #704865, IND #113912)
What is the purpose of the study?This randomized phase III trial is studying giving carboplatin, paclitaxel and gemcitabine together with or without bevacizumab after surgery to see how well it works in treating patients with recurrent ovarian epithelial cancer, primary peritoneal cavity cancer, or fallopian tube cancer. Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as carboplatin, paclitaxel and gemcitabine work in different ways to stop the growth of tumor cells, either by killing the cells or by stopping them from dividing. Monoclonal antibodies, such as bevacizumab, can block tumor growth in different ways. Some block the ability of tumor cells to grow and spread. Others find tumor cells and help kill them or carry tumor-killing substances to them. It is not yet known whether combination chemotherapy is more effective when given with or without bevacizumab after surgery in treating patients with recurrent ovarian epithelial cancer, primary peritoneal cavity cancer, or fallopian tube cancer.
