Randomized Phase II Study of Docetaxel Followed by Vandetanib (ZD6474) vs. Docetaxel Plus Vandetanib in Patients With Persistent or Recurrent Epithelial Ovarian, Fallopian Tube, or Primary Peritoneal

new search

Trial Conditions
  • Fallopian Tube Cancer
  • Ovarian Cancer
  • Primary Peritoneal Cavity Cancer
What is the purpose of this trial?

RATIONALE: Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as docetaxel, work in different ways to stop the growth of tumor cells, either by killing the cells or by stopping them from dividing. Vandetanib may stop the growth of tumor cells by blocking some of the enzymes needed for cell growth and by blocking blood flow to the tumor. It is not yet known whether docetaxel is more effective when given alone or together with vandetanib. PURPOSE: This randomized phase II trial is studying docetaxel given together with or without vandetanib to see how well it works in treating patients with persistent or recurrent ovarian epithelial cancer, fallopian tube cancer, or primary peritoneal cancer.
