A Phase II Trial of Cabozantinib (XL-184) (NSC #761968) in Women with Recurrent, Clear Cell Carcinoma of the Ovary, Fallopian Tube, or Peritoneum.
This phase II trial studies how well cabozantinib-s-malate works in treating patients with ovarian, fallopian tube, or primary peritoneal cavity cancer that has come back or is growing, spreading, or getting worse. Cabozantinib-s-malate may stop the growth of tumor cells by blocking the growth of new blood vessels necessary for tumor growth and also by blocking some of the enzymes needed for cell growth.
* A retrospective review of all patients entered will be performed to confirm clear cell histology; patients must have recurrent or, progressive clear cell ovarian cancer not solely based on cancer antigen (CA)-125; primary tumors must be at least 50% clear cell histomorphology in order to be eligible or have a histologically documented recurrence with at least 50% clear cell histomorphology; recurrence should be biopsy proven unless the tumor is located in an area deemed unsafe to biopsy by the surgeon; if a biopsy can be obtained without significant risk, then biopsy should be obtained
* If the primary tumor had at least 50% clear cell histomorphology, a biopsy of the recurrent or persistent tumor is not required; the percentage of clear cell histomorphology must be documented in the pathology report or in an addendum to the original report; if slides of the primary tumor are not available for review due to disposal of slides by the histology laboratory (typically 10 years after diagnosis), biopsy of recurrent or persistent disease is required
* If slides of the primary tumor are not available for review, a biopsy of the recurrent or persistent tumor is required to confirm at least 50% clear cell histomorphology; the percentage of involvement must be documented in the pathology report or in an addendum to the original report
* Patients must have had one prior platinum-based chemotherapeutic regimen for management of primary disease; platinum sensitive and resistant patients are eligible
* Patients are allowed to receive, but are not required to receive, one additional cytotoxic regimen for management of recurrent or persistent disease
