This trial is active, not recruiting.

Conditions ovarian cancer, malignant female reproductive system neoplasm, cancer, ovarian tumor, ovarian epithelial cancer recurrent
Treatments doxil/caelyx, ati-0918
Phase phase 1
Sponsor Azaya Therapeutics, Inc.
Start date October 2012
End date October 2015
Trial size 40 participants
Trial identifier NCT01715168, ATI0918-101


The purpose of this study is to find the answers to the following research question(s):

1. Is the study drug equivalent to the approved drug, Doxil/Caelyx, and does it act the same way in the body as the approved drug?

ATI-0918 is believed to be a generic of Doxil/Caelyx and this is what the study is trying to prove. All people who participate in this study will receive the research study medication (ATI-0918) and Doxil/Caelyx in addition to best supportive care (treatment for symptoms).

The study drug being tested in this study works the same as the FDA (government) approved drug doxorubicin HCl. ATI-0918 is a generic (the same) formulation of doxorubicin HCl being delivered (given to the patient).
