This pilot clinical trial studies how well intravital microscopy works in evaluating patients with primary peritoneal, fallopian tube, or stage IA-IV ovarian cancer. Intravital microscopic evaluation of tumor blood vessels, blood flow, immune cell interactions, and drug uptake may be eventually visualized and may lead to valuable prognostic information.
This randomized phase II trial studies hyperthermic intraperitoneal chemotherapy or intraperitoneal chemotherapy in improving quality of life in patients with stage IIIC-IV ovarian, fallopian tube, or primary peritoneal cancer. In hyperthermic intraperitoneal chemotherapy, the chemotherapy is warmed before being used and may help the drugs get into the cancer cells better, minimize the toxicity of the drugs on normal cells, and help to kill any cancer cells left over after surgery. Intraperitoneal chemotherapy is delivered directly to the abdominal cavity to help treat cancer. It is not yet known whether hyperthermic intraperitoneal chemotherapy or intraperitoneal chemotherapy works better in improving quality of life in patients with ovarian, fallopian tube, or primary peritoneal cancer.
This randomized pilot clinical trial studies health care coach support in reducing acute care use and cost in patients with cancer. Health care coach support may help cancer patients to make decisions about their care that matches what is important to them with symptom management.
This phase II trial studies how well pUMVC3-IGFBP2 plasmid deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA) vaccine (IGFBP-2 vaccine) and combination chemotherapy work in treating patients with stage III-IV ovarian, fallopian tube, or primary peritoneal cancer undergoing surgery. IGFBP-2 is a protein found in the blood and tumor cells of most who have been diagnosed with ovarian cancer. Too much IGFBP-2 has been associated with more invasive disease. Vaccines made from DNA may help the body build an effective immune response to kill tumor cells that express IGFBP-2. Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as paclitaxel and carboplatin, work in different ways to stop the growth of tumor cells, either by killing the cells, by stopping them from dividing, or by stopping them from spreading. Giving IGFBP-2 vaccine and combination chemotherapy may work better in treating patients with stage III-IV ovarian, fallopian tube, or primary peritoneal cancer undergoing surgery.
This clinical trial studies positron emission tomography (PET) imaging utilizing 18F-FSPG [(S)-4-(3-[18F]Fluoropropyl)-L-glutamic acid], a glutamic acid derivative, to image patients with ovarian cancer before undergoing surgery or transplant. Diagnostic procedures, such as 18F-FSPG PET, may help find and diagnose ovarian cancer and find out how far the disease has spread.
This phase I clinical trial studies the side effects of sirolimus and NY-ESO-1 protein with MIS416 in treating patients stage II-IV ovarian, fallopian tube, or primary peritoneal cancer. Sirolimus may stop the growth of tumor cells by blocking some of the enzymes needed for cell growth. Vaccine therapy, like Y-ESO-1 protein with MIS416, may strengthen the immune system to find and kill tumor cells. Biological therapies, such as sirolimus, use substances made from living organisms that may stimulate or suppress the immune system in different ways and stop tumor cells from growing. Giving sirolimus and vaccine therapy may work betting in treating patients with ovarian, fallopian tube or primary peritoneal cancer.
This pilot trial studies how well nanoparticle albumin-bound rapamycin works in treating patients with cancer that as has spread to other places in the body and usually cannot be cured or controlled with treatment (advanced cancer) and that has an abnormality in a protein called mechanistic target of rapamycin (mTOR). Patients with this mutation are identified by genetic testing. Patients then receive nanoparticle albumin-bound rapamycin, which may stop the growth of cancer cells by blocking the mTOR enzyme, which is needed for cell growth and multiplication. Using treatments that target a patient's specific mutation may be a more effective treatment than the standard of care treatment.
This phase I trial studies the side effects and best dose of talazoparib in treating patients with solid tumors that have spread to other places in the body and usually cannot be cured or controlled with treatment (advanced) or have spread to other places in the body (metastatic) and cannot be removed by surgery and liver or kidney dysfunction. Talazoparib may stop the growth of tumor cells by blocking some of the enzymes needed for cell growth.
This phase I trial studies the side effects and best dose of activated T-cell therapy when given together with low-dose aldesleukin and sargramostim in treating patients with ovarian, fallopian tube, or primary peritoneal cancer that is stage III-IV, has not responded to previous treatment, or has come back. Activated T cells that have been coated with bi-specific antibodies, such as anti-cluster of differentiation (CD)3 and anti-human epidermal growth factor receptor 2 (HER2), may stimulate the immune system in different ways and stop tumor cells from growing. Aldesleukin may stimulate white blood cells to kill tumor cells. Colony-stimulating factors, such as sargramostim, may increase the production of blood cells. Giving activated T-cell therapy with low-dose aldesleukin and sargramostim may be a better treatment for ovarian, fallopian tube, or primary peritoneal cancer.
This research study is studying a possible test which may help doctors diagnose women with ovarian cancer.
