A Phase II Evaluation of the Poly (ADP-Ribose) Polymerase (PARP) -1 and -2 Inhibitor Veliparib (ABT-888) (NSC #737664) in the Treatment of Persistent or Recurrent Epithelial Ovarian, Fallopian Tube, or Primary Peritoneal Cancer Patients Who Carry a Germline BRCA1 or BRCA2 Mutation
This phase II trial studies how well veliparib works in treating patients with epithelial ovarian, fallopian tube, or primary peritoneal cancer that has come back or does not respond to treatment. Veliparib may stop the growth of tumor cells by blocking some of the enzymes needed for cell growth.
Stanford is not currently accepting new patients for this trial. You may want to check clinicaltrials.gov to see if other locations are recruiting.

Phase: Phase 2
Ages Eligible For Study:
- Patients must have recurrent or persistent epithelial ovarian, fallopian tube, or primary peritoneal carcinoma AND carry a germline mutation in BRCA1 or BRCA2 (confirmation required via Myriad test report); histologic documentation of the original primary tumor is required via the pathology report - All patients must have measurable disease as defined by Response Evaluation Criteria in Solid Tumors(RECIST)1.1; measurable disease is defined as at least one lesion that can be accurately measured in at least one dimension (longest diameter to be recorded); each lesion must be >= 10 mm when measured by computed tomography (CT), magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), or caliper measurement by clinical exam; or >= 20 mm when measured by chest x-ray; lymph nodes must be >= 15 mm in short axis when measured by CT or MRI - Patient must have at least one "target lesion" to be used to assess response on this protocol as defined by RECIST; 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 who have received one prior cytotoxic regimen must have a Gynecological Oncology Group (GOG) performance status of 0, 1, or 2 - Patients who have received two or three prior cytotoxic regimens must have a GOG performance status of 0 or 1 - Recovery from effects of recent surgery, radiotherapy, or chemotherapy - Patients should be free of active infection requiring antibiotics (with the exception of uncomplicated urinary tract infection [UTI]) - Any hormonal therapy directed at the malignant tumor must be discontinued at least one week prior to registration; continuation of hormone replacement therapy is permitted - Any other prior therapy directed at the malignant tumor, including chemotherapy, biologic/targeted (non-cytotoxic) agents and immunologic agents, must be discontinued at least three weeks prior to registration; patients receiving nitrosoureas or mitomycin C must discontinue 6 weeks prior to registration - Any prior radiation therapy must be discontinued at least four weeks prior to registration - 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, biologic/targeted (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 - Patients are allowed to receive, but are not required to receive, biologic/targeted (non-cytotoxic) therapy for management of recurrent or persistent disease; patients are allowed to receive, but are not required to receive, biologic/targeted (non-cytotoxic) therapy as part of their primary treatment regimen - Patients with both platinum-sensitive and platinum-resistant disease are eligible; patients with platinum-refractory disease are NOT eligible - Definitions: - Platinum sensitive ovarian cancer is defined as patients who respond to platinum-based therapy (complete or partial) and then progress/recur more than 6 months after their last platinum dose (i.e., platinum-free interval is > 6 months) - Platinum resistant ovarian cancer is defined as patients who respond to platinum-based therapy (complete or partial) and then progress/recur within 6 months of their last platinum dose (i.e., platinum-free interval is =< 6 months) - Platinum refractory ovarian cancer is defined as patients who have progression of disease while receiving platinum-based chemotherapy or who fail to achieve at least a partial response to platinum-based chemotherapy (i.e., best response to platinum-based chemotherapy is stable disease) - Absolute neutrophil count (ANC) greater than or equal to 1,500/mcl - Platelets greater than or equal to 100,000/mcl - Creatinine less than or equal to 1.5 x institutional upper limit normal (ULN) - Bilirubin less than or equal to 1.5 x ULN - Aspartate aminotransferase (AST) and alanine aminotransferase (ALT) less than or equal to 3 x ULN - Alkaline phosphatase less than or equal to 2.5 x ULN - Patients must have signed an approved informed consent and authorization permitting release of personal health information - Patients of childbearing potential must have a negative pregnancy test prior to the study entry and be practicing an effective form of contraception
