Bevacizumab With or Without Everolimus in Treating Patients With Recurrent or Persistent Ovarian Epithelial Cancer, Fallopian Tube Cancer, or Primary Peritoneal Cancer
This randomized phase II trial studies how well bevacizumab with or without everolimus works in treating patients with recurrent or persistent ovarian epithelial cancer, fallopian tube cancer, or primary peritoneal cancer. 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. Everolimus may stop the growth of tumor cells by blocking some of the enzymes needed for cell growth. Bevacizumab and everolimus may also stop the growth of tumor cells by blocking blood flow to the tumor. It is not yet known whether bevacizumab is more effective when given together with or without everolimus in treating ovarian epithelial cancer, fallopian tube cancer, or primary peritoneal cancer.
A Phase II Randomized, Double-Blinded Evaluation of Oral Everolimus (RAD001) Plus Bevacizumab vs. Oral Placebo Plus Bevacizumab in the Treatment of Recurrent or Persistent Epithelial Ovarian, Fallopian Tube or Primary Peritoneal Cancer
- To estimate the progression-free survival hazard ratio of the combination of oral everolimus (RAD001) and bevacizumab compared to oral placebo and bevacizumab in patients with persistent or recurrent ovarian, fallopian tube, or primary peritoneal cancer.
- To determine the nature and degree of toxicity of oral everolimus (or placebo) plus bevacizumab.
II. To characterize and compare progression-free survival and overall survival in patients with measurable disease (Response Evaluation Criteria in Solid Tumors [RECIST] criteria) and patients with detectable (non-measurable) disease.
III. To estimate the proportion of patients with measurable disease who have objective tumor responses by treatment.
IV. To provide descriptive information about cancer antigen (CA)-125 responses by regimen and where possible by objective tumor responses.
OUTLINE: Patients are randomized to 1 of 2 treatment arms.
ARM I: Patients receive bevacizumab intravenously (IV) over 30-90 minutes on days 1 and 15 and everolimus orally (PO) once daily (QD) on days 1-28.
ARM II: Patients receive bevacizumab as in Arm I and placebo PO QD on days 1-28.
In both arms, courses repeat every 28 days in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity.
After completion of study treatment, patients are followed every 3 months for 2 years and then every 6 months for 3 years.

- Patients must have recurrent or persistent epithelial ovarian, fallopian tube, or primary peritoneal carcinoma; histologic documentation of the original primary tumor is required via the pathology report
- Patients must have measurable disease or detectable (non-measurable) disease:
- Measurable disease is defined as at least one lesion that can be accurately measured in at least one dimension (longest dimension to be recorded); each lesion must be greater than or equal to 10 mm when measured by computed tomography (CT), magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) or caliper measurement by clinical exam; or greater than or equal to 20 mm when measured by chest x-ray; lymph nodes must be greater than or equal to 15 mm in short axis when measured by CT or MRI

- Ascites and/or pleural effusion attributed to tumor
- Solid and/or cystic abnormalities on radiographic imaging that do not meet RECIST 1.1 definitions for target lesions
- Patients in the measurable disease cohort must have at least one ?target lesion? to be used to assess response on this protocol as defined by RECIST 1.1; tumors within a previously irradiated field will be designated as ?non-target? lesions unless progression is documented or a biopsy is obtained to confirm persistence at least 90 days following completion of radiation therapy
- Patients must not be eligible for a higher priority Gynecologic Oncology Group (GOG) protocol, if one exists; in general, this would refer to any active GOG phase III protocol or Rare Tumor Protocol for the same patient population
- Patients who have had one prior treatment must have a GOG performance status of 0, 1, or 2; patients who have had two or three prior treatments must have a GOG performance status of 0 or 1

- Prior therapy:
- Patients must have had one prior platinum-based chemotherapeutic regimen for management of primary disease containing carboplatin, cisplatin, or another organoplatinum compound' this initial treatment may have included intraperitoneal therapy, consolidation, non-cytotoxic agents or extended therapy administered after surgical or non-surgical assessment
- Patients are allowed to receive, but are not required to receive, two additional cytotoxic regimens for management of recurrent or persistent disease, with no more than 1 non-platinum, non-taxane regimen
- Patients are allowed to receive, but are not required to receive, biologic (non-cytotoxic) therapy as part of their primary treatment regimen; patients must have NOT received any non-cytotoxic therapy for management of recurrent or persistent disease
- Patients who have received only one prior cytotoxic regimen (platinum-based regimen for management of primary disease), must have a platinum-free interval of less than 12 months, or have progressed during platinum-based therapy, or have persistent disease after a platinum-based therapy
