Trial Information

A Phase II Study of Every 2 Week Doxil and Gemcitabine in Recurrent Ovarian Cancer

This study will evaluate the toxicities of Doxil and Gemcitabine given on an every two week
basis. Our hypothesis is that toxicity will be less than that with standard dosing without
any negative effect on survival. Patients will also be evaluated with CT scans every 3
months. Toxicity will be assessed with every cycle of treatment. Treatment will continue
until toxicity or signs of progression.
