Trial Information

A Phase II Trial Of IM862 Combined With Paclitaxel And Carboplatin In Newly Diagnosed Advanced Epithelial Ovarian Or Primary Peritoneal Carcinoma Followed By IM862 Consolidation Therapy

OBJECTIVES: I. Determine the complete pathologic response rate at second-look surgery in
patients with optimally resected stage III ovarian epithelial or primary peritoneal cancer
treated with adjuvant paclitaxel, carboplatin, and IM-862. II. Determine the safety profile
of this regimen in this patient population. III. Determine the incidence of infectious and
hematologic complications in patients treated with this regimen. IV. Determine the
progression-free survival of patients with no disease or minimal disease burden after
initial therapy, when treated with IM-862 consolidation therapy. V. Correlate angiogenesis
markers and immunologic parameters with response in patients treated with this regimen.

OUTLINE: This is a randomized, double-blind, multicenter study. Patients are stratified
according to participating center. Patients are randomized to one of three IM-862 doses.
Patients receive paclitaxel IV over 3 hours and carboplatin IV over 30 minutes on day 1.
Treatment repeats every 21 days for 6 courses in the absence of disease progression or
unacceptable toxicity. Treatment with IM-862 begins within 10 days of chemotherapy
initiation and continues until clinical evidence of disease progression or until 3 days
before second-look surgery. Arm I: Patients receive a low-dose of IM-862 and 2 placebo doses
intranasally daily. Arm II: Patients receive a medium-dose of IM-862 and 2 placebo doses as
in arm I. Arm III: Patients receive higher-dose IM-862 intranasally three times daily.
Patients undergo second-look surgery within 4-8 weeks after completion of the last course of
chemotherapy. Patients with a complete pathologic response or only microscopically
detectable residual disease receive consolidation therapy with IM-862, according to their
original treatment arm. Consolidation therapy begins within 3-14 days after second-look
surgery and continues for 24 weeks in the absence of disease progression. Patients are
followed at 6 and 12 months.

PROJECTED ACCRUAL: A total of 180 patients (60 per arm) will be accrued for this study
within 1 year.
