Cetuximab and Carboplatin in Treating Patients With Recurrent Ovarian Epithelial Cancer or Primary Peritoneal Cancer

Study:

A Phase II Evaluation of Cetuximab (C225, NSC #714692) in Combination With Carboplatin (NSC #241240) in the Treatment of Recurrent Platinum-Sensitive Ovarian or Primary Peritoneal Cancer

Rationale:

Monoclonal antibodies such as cetuximab can locate tumor cells and either kill them or deliver tumor-killing substances to them without harming normal cells. Drugs used in chemotherapy such as carboplatin work in different ways to stop tumor cells from dividing so they stop growing or die. Combining cetuximab with carboplatin may kill more tumor cells.

Purpose:

This phase II trial is studying how well giving cetuximab together with carboplatin works in treating patients with recurrent ovarian epithelial cancer or primary peritoneal cancer.
