Trial Information

A Phase II Trial of NCI-Supplied Agent: Bevacizumab (rhuMAB VEGF) (NSC 704865, IND 7921) for Recurrent Sex Cord-Stromal Tumors of the Ovary


I. To estimate the anti-tumor activity of bevacizumab by assessing frequency of objective
response in patients with recurrent sex cord-stromal tumors of the ovary who have measurable


I. To determine the nature and degree of toxicity of this drug in these patients.

II. To determine the overall survival and progression-free survival of these patients.


I. To quantify expression of angiogenic or lymphangiogenic markers in recurrent stromal
tumors of the ovary to determine the frequency of alterations and potential utility of
biologic agents directed at these proteins for inclusion in future studies.

OUTLINE: This is a multicenter study.

Patients receive bevacizumab intravenously (IV) over 30-90 minutes on day 1. Courses repeat
every 21 days in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity.

After completion of study therapy, patients are followed every 3 months for 2 years, every 6
months for 3 years, and then periodically thereafter.
