A phase II study of intravenous exatecan mesylate (DX-8951f) administered daily for 5 days every 3 weeks to patients with advanced ovarian, tubal or peritoneal cancer resistant to platinum, taxane and topotecan



DX-8951f administered parenterally as a single agent daily at a dose of either 0.5 or 0.3 mg/m 2 per day for 5 days is feasible in patients with advanced ovarian, tubal and peritoneal cancer resistant to platinum, taxane and topotecan. Although no responses were observed, a significant number of patients had stable disease with a decrease in CA-125 levels. In this heavily pretreated population, DX-8951f has clinically relevant hematologic and gastrointestinal toxicities in about 25% of patients. DX-8951 appeared to have linear pharmacokinetic characteristics on the basis of multiple administrations.
