A Phase II Evaluation Of Gleevec (Imatinib Mesylate) (IND #61135, NSC #716051) In The Treatment Of Persistent Or Recurrent Epithelial Ovarian Or Primary Peritoneal Carcinoma


PRIMARY OBJECTIVES:

I. To evaluate the cytostatic, anti-tumor activity of Gleevec (Imatinib Mesylate) through
the probability of surviving progression-free for at least 6 months in patients with
recurrent or persistent epithelial ovarian or primary peritoneal carcinoma receiving
Gleevec.

II. To determine the frequency and severity of adverse effects of Gleevec in this cohort of
patients as assessed by CTC.

SECONDARY OBJECTIVES:

I. To determine the distribution of the overall survival. II. To determine the distribution
of progression-free survival. III. To estimate the clinical response rate (partial and
complete response as defined under the RECIST criteria).

IV. To assess the effects of prognostic variables: initial performance status, platinum
sensitivity, and mucinous (or clear cell) histology).

TERTIARY OBJECTIVES:

I. To determine the levels of expression of c-KIT and its ligand, stem cell factor (SCF) in
archived, formalin fixed, paraffin embedded primary tumors collected prior to the initiation
of first-line chemotherapy.

II. To determine the levels of expression of platelet derived growth factor receptor (PDGFR)
and its ligand PDGF in archived, formalin fixed, paraffin embedded primary tumors collected
prior to the initiation of first-line chemotherapy.

III. To determine the levels of expression of AKT2 and its activated form, phospho-AKT2, in
archived, formalin fixed, paraffin embedded primary tumors collected prior to the initiation
of first-line chemotherapy.

OUTLINE: This is a multicenter study.

Patients receive oral imatinib mesylate twice daily on days 1-28. Courses repeat every 28
days in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity.

Patients are followed every 3 months for 2 years, every 6 months for 3 years, and then
annually thereafter.


Inclusion Criteria:



- Histologically confirmed ovarian epithelial or primary peritoneal carcinoma

- Recurrent or persistent disease

- At least 1 unidimensionally measurable target lesion

- At least 20 mm by conventional techniques OR at least 10 mm by spiral CT scan

- Tumors within a previously irradiated field considered nontarget lesions

- At least one prior platinum-based chemotherapy regimen (containing carboplatin,
cisplatin, or another organoplatinum compound) for primary disease required

- Initial treatment may include high-dose, consolidation, or extended therapy

- Initial treatment-free interval less than 12 months for patients who received
only 1 prior platinum-based regimen

- Initial treatment-free interval of more than 12 months allowed provided disease
progression has occurred within 12 months after retreatment with a second-line
platinum-based regimen

- Ineligible for a higher priority GOG protocol (e.g., any active phase III GOG
protocol for the same patient population)

- Performance status - GOG 0-2 (if patient has received one prior treatment regimen)

- Performance status - GOG 0-1 (if patient has received two prior treatment regimens)

after study participation

- No active infection requiring antibiotics

- No greater than grade 1 sensory and motor neuropathy

- No other invasive malignancy within the past 5 years except nonmelanoma skin cancer

- No signs or symptoms of bowel dysfunction

- At least 3 weeks since prior immunologic therapy directed at the malignant tumor

- No concurrent biologic therapy or immunotherapy for the malignant tumor

- Recovered from prior chemotherapy

- No prior noncytotoxic chemotherapy for persistent or recurrent disease

- One additional cytotoxic regimen for persistent or recurrent disease allowed

- No concurrent chemotherapy for the malignant tumor

- At least 1 week since prior hormonal therapy directed at the malignant tumor

- Concurrent hormone replacement therapy allowed

- Recovered from prior radiotherapy

- No prior radiotherapy to more than 25% of marrow-bearing areas

- No concurrent anticancer radiotherapy

- Recovered from recent prior surgery

- At least 3 weeks since other prior therapies directed at the malignant tumor

- No prior imatinib mesylate

- No prior anticancer therapy that would preclude study participation

- No concurrent therapeutic anticoagulation with warfarin
