Condition ovarian stromal cancer
Treatment bevacizumab
Phase phase 2
Target VEGF
Sponsor National Cancer Institute (NCI)
Start date September 2008
End date January 2013
Trial size 35 participants
Trial identifier NCT00748657, CDR0000613531, GOG-0251, NCI-2009-00611, U10CA027469


This phase II trial is studying how well bevacizumab works in treating patients with recurrent sex cord-stromal tumors of the ovary. 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. Bevacizumab may also stop the growth of tumor cells by blocking blood flow to the tumor.

Additional Information

Official title A Phase II Trial of NCI-Supplied Agent: Bevacizumab (rhuMAB VEGF) (NSC 704865, IND 7921) for Recurrent Sex Cord-Stromal Tumors of the Ovary
Principal investigator Jubilee Brown
Description PRIMARY OBJECTIVES: I. To estimate the anti-tumor activity of bevacizumab by assessing frequency of objective response in patients with recurrent sex cord-stromal tumors of the ovary who have measurable disease. SECONDARY OBJECTIVES: I. To determine the nature and degree of toxicity of this drug in these patients. II. To determine the overall survival and progression-free survival of these patients. TERTIARY OBJECTIVES: I. To quantify expression of angiogenic or lymphangiogenic markers in recurrent stromal tumors of the ovary to determine the frequency of alterations and potential utility of biologic agents directed at these proteins for inclusion in future studies. OUTLINE: This is a multicenter study. Patients receive bevacizumab intravenously (IV) over 30-90 minutes on day 1. Courses repeat every 21 days in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity. After completion of study therapy, patients are followed every 3 months for 2 years, every 6 months for 3 years, and then periodically thereafter.
