Trial Information

A Phase I/II Trial of ACA 125 in Patients With Recurrent Epithelial Ovarian, Fallopian Tube or Peritoneal Cancer

Patients with epithelial ovarian, fallopian tube or peritoneal cancer who receive surgical
cytoreduction and platinum/taxane containing chemotherapy have a significant chance of
entering complete clinical remission but about 70% will eventually relapse. Many patients
respond to additional cytotoxic treatment with partial or complete responses, yet
approximately 100% of these patients will ultimately progress. Novel consolidation
strategies following treatment for recurrent disease are needed and an immunologic approach
is an attractive option.

Inclusion Criteria:

- Patients with epithelial carcinoma arising in the ovary, fallopian tube or
peritoneum, stages I-IV. These patients must have received initial surgery and
chemotherapy with at least one platinum based chemotherapy regimen.

- Patients must have relapsed and now have completed chemotherapy for recurrent disease
within the last 6 weeks.

- Eligible patients may have asymptomatic residual measurable disease on CT scan,
and/or may have an elevated CA-125, or may be in complete clinical remission.

- Patients must have adequate hematologic, renal and hepatic functions.

Exclusion Criteria:

- Patients with any other active malignancy concomitantly

- Patients within 3 weeks of prior cytotoxic or investigational chemotherapy

- Patients within 4 weeks of prior radiotherapy

- Patients within 6 weeks of prior immunotherapy

- Patients who have received any prior anti-cancer vaccine
