Allocation randomized
Endpoint classification safety/efficacy study
Intervention model parallel assignment
Masking open label
Primary purpose treatment
(No Intervention)
Patients receive bevacizumab 15 mg/kg iv on day 1 followed by gemcitabine 1000mg/m² iv on day 1 & 8 and carboplatin AUC4 iv on day 1 every 3 weeks for up to 6 cycles in the absence of progression disease or unacceptable toxicities. Patients then continue to receive bevacizumab 15 mg/kg iv every 3 weeks until progression disease or unacceptable toxicities.
Patients receive bevacizumab 10 mg/kg iv on day 1 & 15 followed by PLD 30mg/m² iv on day 1 carboplatin AUC4 iv on day 1 every 4 weeks for up to 6 cycles in the absence of progression disease or unacceptable toxicities. Patients then continue to receive bevacizumab 15 mg/kg iv every 3 weeks until progression disease or unacceptable toxicities.

Primary Outcomes

investigator-determined progression-free survival
time frame: every 12 weeks until progression or up to 30 months (whichever occurs first)

Secondary Outcomes

biological progression-free survival by serum CA 125
time frame: every 3 weeks until progression or up to 30 months (whichever occurs first)
Health related Quality of Life (QoL)
time frame: Baseline and then every 12 weeks until investigator-determined progresssion-free survival and thereafter at every visit for th 5-years follow-up or death (whichever occurs first)
Safety and Tolerability, i.e. type, frequency, severity and duration o adverse reactions
time frame: every 3 weeks, 30 months after start of treatment or if applicable 4 weeks after last dose of bevacizumab (whichever occurs later)
Overall Survival
time frame: every 3 weeks during treatment with bevacizumab, thereafter every 6 months; for up 30 months
