OXiGENE Announces ZYBRESTAT(R) Plus Avastin(R) Continues To Be Well Tolerated In Second Interim Toxicity Analysis Of A Phase 2 Ovarian Cancer Trial

About the Phase 2 Trial

The Phase 2 trial was initiated in March 2011, and is titled, "A Randomized Phase II Evaluation of Single-Agent Bevacizumab (IND #7921) (NSC #704865) and Combination Bevacizumab with Fosbretabulin Tromethamine (CA4P) (NSC #752293) in the Treatment of Recurrent or Persistent Epithelial Ovarian, Fallopian Tube or Primary Peritoneal Carcinoma." The Study chair and co-chairs are Bradley Monk, MD, Creighton University School of Medicine, St. Joseph's Hospital and Medical Center, Phoenix, Arizona, Robert L.Coleman, MD, University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center, Houston, Texas and Carol Aghajanian, MD, Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center, respectively. The study is being conducted at more than 80 sites in the U.S.

To be eligible for the study, patients must have measurable or detectable recurrent or persistent epithelial ovarian, fallopian tube or primary peritoneal carcinoma, and must have had one prior platinum-based chemotherapeutic regimen for management of primary disease containing carboplatin, cisplatin or another organoplatinum compound. Patients can be either platinum-sensitive or platinum-resistant but cannot have received more than two prior chemotherapy regimens.

Patients are randomized into two arms: one arm receives bevacizumab 15 mg/kg IV on day 1 and then every three weeks; the second arm receives bevacizumab plus fosbretabulin tromethamine 60 mg/m 2 IV on day 1 and then every three weeks. Patients are treated until disease progression or until adverse effects prohibit further therapy. The primary endpoint of the Phase 2 trial is progression-free survival. Secondary endpoints include safety, overall survival and objective responses by treatment arm.
