A Phase I Study of Intravenous Carboplatin/Paclitaxel or Intravenous and Intraperitoneal Paclitaxel/Cisplatin in Combination With Continuous or Intermittent /CTEP-Supplied Agent ABT-888 (NSC #737664) and CTEP-Supplied Agent Bevacizumab (NSC #704865) in Newly Diagnosed Patients With Previously Untreated Epithelial Ovarian, Fallopian Tube or Primary Peritoneal Cancer
This phase I trial studies the side effects and best dose of veliparib when given together with carboplatin, paclitaxel, and bevacizumab in treating patients with newly diagnosed stage II-IV ovarian epithelial, fallopian tube, or primary peritoneal cancer. Veliparib may stop the growth of tumor cells by blocking some of the enzymes needed for cells to repair themselves from damage and survive. Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as carboplatin and 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, a type of drug called a monoclonal antibody, blocks tumor growth by targeting certain cells and preventing the growth of new blood vessels that tumors need to grow. Giving veliparib together with carboplatin, paclitaxel, and bevacizumab may kill more tumor cells.
I. To determine the maximum tolerated dose (MTD) and dose-limiting toxicities of ABT-888 (veliparib) when administered using continuous versus intermittent dosing schedules with intravenous carboplatin, paclitaxel and bevacizumab using two different treatment regimens; or with intraperitoneal cisplatin and intravenous and intraperitoneal paclitaxel and bevacizumab in women with newly diagnosed, previously untreated, epithelial ovarian, fallopian tube, or primary peritoneal cancer.
II. To determine the feasibility of these treatment regimens over four cycles in a 2-stage group sequential design once the MTD is established.
III. To assess the toxicity of these regimens using Cancer Therapy Evaluation Program (CTEP) National Cancer Institute (NCI) Common Terminology Criteria for Adverse Events (CTCAE) version 4.0.
I. To estimate the response rate (in measurable disease patients) and progression-free survival in patients treated with these treatment regimens.
I. To assess the extent of poly-ADP-ribose polymerase (PARP) inhibition in peripheral blood mononuclear cells (PBMCs) on day 1 of cycles 1 and 2.
II. To assess genomic breast cancer, early onset (BRCA) mutation status in all patients in regimens I and II with continuous ABT-888 dosing and descriptively correlate with toxicity and efficacy.
OUTLINE: This is a dose-escalation study of veliparib followed by a feasibility study. Patients are sequentially assigned to 1 of 3 treatment regimens.
REGIMEN I: Patients receive paclitaxel intravenously (IV) over 3 hours, carboplatin IV over 30 minutes, and bevacizumab IV over 30-90 minutes (beginning in course 2) on day 1. Patients also receive veliparib orally (PO) twice daily (BID) on days 1-21. Treatment repeats every 21 days for 6 courses. Patients then receive bevacizumab alone on day 1. Treatment with bevacizumab repeats every 21 days for 16 courses in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity.
REGIMEN II: Patients receive paclitaxel IV over 1 hour on days 1, 8, and 15. Patients also receive carboplatin, bevacizumab, and veliparib as in Regimen I. Treatment repeats every 21 days for 6 courses. Patients then receive bevacizumab alone on day 1. Treatment with bevacizumab repeats every 21 days for 16 courses in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity.
REGIMEN III: Patients receive paclitaxel IV over 3 hours on day 1 and intraperitoneally (IP) on day 8, and cisplatin IP on day 1 or 2. Patients also receive bevacizumab and veliparib as in Regimen I. Treatment repeats every 21 days for 6 courses. Patients then receive bevacizumab alone on day 1. Treatment repeats every 21 days for 16 courses in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity.
After completion of study treatment, patients are followed up periodically.
