Condition peritoneal carcinomatosis
Treatments paclitaxel, radical surgery-peritonectomy
Phase phase 2
Sponsor Maimónides Biomedical Research Institute of Córdoba
Start date July 2012
End date November 2014
Trial size 32 participants
Trial identifier NCT02739698, PI 0678-10


A randomized controlled single-blind clinical trial was performed, in 32 patients diagnosed with peritoneal carcinomatosis from epithelial ovarian cancer, who underwent radical surgery-peritonectomy, achieving an optimal R0-R1 cytoreduction (microscopic tumor residues (R0) or macroscopic tumor residues < 1cm (R1)) followed by hyperthermia against normothermia intraperitoneal intraoperative chemotherapy with paclitaxel
