A Randomized Phase II Induction Discontinuation Trial of Emactuzumab Following Paclitaxel and Bevacizumab in Patients with Platinum-Resistant, Epithelial Ovarian, Fallopian Tube or Primary Peritoneal Cancer
MD Anderson Study Status
Bevacizumab, Emactuzumab, Paclitaxel
This randomized phase II trial studies the side effects of paclitaxel and bevacizumab with or without emactuzumab and how well they work in treating patients with ovarian, fallopian tube, or primary peritoneal cancer that has come back after treatment with platinum chemotherapy. Monoclonal antibodies, such as emactuzumab, block tumor growth in different ways by targeting certain cells. Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as paclitaxel, work in different ways to stop the growth of tumor cells, either by killing the cells, by stopping them from dividing, or by stopping them from spreading. Bevacizumab may prevent the growth of new blood vessels that tumors need to grow. Giving emactuzumab with paclitaxel and bevacizumab may work better in treating ovarian, fallopian tube, or primary peritoneal cancer.
