Condition ovarian cancer
Treatments carboplatin, cisplatin, cyclophosphamide, doxorubicin hydrochloride
Phase phase 3
Sponsor Medical Research Council
Start date April 1991
Trial identifier NCT00002477, CDR0000077026, EU-91002, MRC-ICON1


RATIONALE: Drugs used in chemotherapy use different ways to stop tumor cells from dividing so they stop growing or die. Combining more than one drug may kill more cancer cells.

PURPOSE: Randomized phase III trial to compare the effectiveness of adjuvant therapy using platinum-based chemotherapy drugs with no adjuvant therapy in treating patients with early stage invasive ovarian epithelial cancer.

Additional Information

Official title Phase III Randomized Study of Adjuvant Therapy With a Platinum-Containing Regimen (e.g., CBDCA or CAP: CTX/DOX/CDDP) vs No Adjuvant Therapy in Patients With Fully Resected Early Stage Ovarian Cancer
Description OBJECTIVES: I. Determine whether adjuvant chemotherapy with a platinum-containing regimen (e.g., carboplatin or CAP: cyclophosphamide/doxorubicin/cisplatin) prolongs survival in patients with early stage ovarian cancer compared to those receiving no adjuvant treatment. OUTLINE: Randomized study. Patients are randomized to Arm I or II; treatment should begin within 6 weeks of surgery. Regimens listed in Arm I are recommended, but other platinum-containing regimens are allowed provided the doses at a minimum meet those listed below. Arm I: Single-agent Chemotherapy or 3-Drug Combination Chemotherapy. Carboplatin, CBDCA, NSC-241240; or CAP: Cyclophosphamide, CTX, NSC-26271; Doxorubicin, DOX, NSC-123127; Cisplatin, CDDP, NSC-119875. Arm II: Observation. No adjuvant therapy. PROJECTED ACCRUAL: A maximum of 2,000 patients will be randomized.
