A Phase II Combined Modality Protocol of Debulking Surgery With Heated Intraoperative Chemotherapy (HIPEC) Followed by Intraperitoneal Chemotherapy for the Treatment of Recurrent Ovarian, Primary Peritoneal and Fallopian Tube Cancers
1. Patients must have histologically confirmed ovarian, primary peritoneal or fallopian
2. Patients must have measurable evidence of recurrent intraabdominal disease based on
Computed tomography (CT scan) findings.
3. Patients must fulfill the following with regard to prior chemotherapy:
1. 4 weeks or greater since conclusion of prior chemotherapy;
2. Prior intraperitoneal chemotherapy with cisplatin is acceptable; and,
3. Prior systemic chemotherapy is acceptable.
4. Patients must have a Karnofsky Performance Status of > 70%
5. Patients must have an estimated life expectancy of at least 16 weeks.
6. Patient assurance of study compliance and geographic proximity that allows for
7. Patients must have adequate organ function at the screening visit as defined by the
following laboratory values:
Absolute neutrophil count (ANC) ≥1.5 x 109/L Platelet count ≥100 x 109/L Hemoglobin ≥8
g/dL Albumin ≥ 2 g/dL Total Bilirubin ≤ 2.5 x ULN* Alkaline phosphatase ≤ 3.0 x ULN*
Aspartate transaminase (AST) and alanine transaminase (ALT) ≤ 3.0 x ULN Creatinine ≤ 1.5 x
 Patient must have signed informed consent
 Patient must be at least 18 years of age
 Following cytoreductive surgery, patient's residual disease should be no larger than
1cm to Receive HIPEC and continue with normothermic IP chemotherapy
1. Have active peripheral neuropathy of Grade 2 or greater intensity, as defined by the
National Cancer Institute (NCI) Common Toxicity Criteria for Adverse Events (CTCAE;
2. Have experienced myocardial infarction within 6 months prior to enrollment or have
New York Hospital Association (NYHA) Class III or IV heart failure (see section
16.4), uncontrolled angina, severe uncontrolled ventricular arrhythmias, or
electrocardiographic evidence of acute ischemia or active conduction system
3. Prior radiation therapy within 4 weeks of enrollment.
4. Have uncontrolled active systemic infection requiring therapy.
5. Have a history of allergic reaction attributable to compounds containing boron or
mannitol or hypersensitivity reactions to drugs formulated with polysorbate 80.
6. Have had a serious concomitant systemic disorders (including oncologic emergencies)
incompatible with the study (at the discretion of the investigator).
7. Have had a "currently active" second malignancy other than non-melanoma skin cancer
or carcinoma in situ of the cervix are not to be registered. Patients who are not
considered to have a "currently active" malignancy if they have completed therapy and
are considered by their physician to be at less than 30% risk of relapse.
8. Have had any investigational agent within 4 weeks before enrollment into the study.
9. Have a history of a serious medical or psychiatric illness preventing informed
consent or, in the opinion of the investigator, would make the patient a poor study
10. Evidence of extraabdominal metastasis on preinclusion thoracic computed tomography
(CT) scans (i.e. brain or chest disease).
