Carboplatin and Paclitaxel or Oxaliplatin and Capecitabine, With or Without Bevacizumab, as First-Line Therapy in Treating Patients With Newly Diagnosed Stage II, Stage III, Stage IV, or Recurrent Stage I Epithelial Ovarian Cancer or Fallopian Tube Cancer


A GCIG Intergroup Multicenter Phase III Trial of Open Label Carboplatin and Paclitaxel +/- NCI-Supplied Agent: Bevacizumab (NSC #704865, IND #113912) Compared With Oxaliplatin and Capecitabine +/- Bevacizumab as First Line Chemotherapy in Patients With Mucinous Epithelial Ovarian Cancer or Fallopian Tube Cancer (MEOC)




This randomized phase III trial is studying carboplatin given together with paclitaxel with or without bevacizumab to see how well it works compared with oxaliplatin given together with capecitabine with or without bevacizumab as first-line therapy in treating patients with newly diagnosed stage II, stage III, stage IV, or recurrent stage I epithelial ovarian cancer or fallopian tube cancer. Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as carboplatin, paclitaxel, oxaliplatin, and capecitabine, work in different ways to stop the growth of tumor cells, either by killing the cells or by stopping them from dividing. Monoclonal antibodies, such as bevacizumab, can block tumor growth in different ways. Some block the ability of tumor cells to grow and spread. Others find tumor cells and help kill them or carry tumor-killing substances to them. It is not yet known which regimen of combination chemotherapy given together with or without bevacizumab is more effective in treating epithelial ovarian cancer or fallopian tube cancer.
