Eligibility
Key inclusion criteria
DISEASE CHARACTERISTICS:

- Histologically confirmed ovarian epithelial, fallopian tube, or primary peritoneal
cavity cancer

- Newly diagnosed disease

- Meets 1 of the following staging criteria:

- High-risk stage I or IIA disease (grade 3 disease or clear cell carcinoma only)

- Stage IIB-IV disease (all grades and all histological types)

- Must have undergone initial surgery (e.g., debulking cytoreductive surgery or a biopsy
if the patient has stage IV disease) within the past 6 weeks

- Patients with stage IV disease for which initial surgical debulking was not
appropriate are eligible provided the following criteria are met:

- Stage IV disease diagnosed by histology

- No planned surgery prior to disease progression, including interval
debulking surgery

- Patients with prior early-stage ovarian epithelial or fallopian tube carcinoma treated
with surgery alone are eligible at the time of diagnosis of abdominopelvic recurrence
provided no further interval cytoreductive therapy is planned prior to disease
progression

carcinoma allowed provided the following criteria are met:

Summary
Brief summary
RATIONALE: Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as carboplatin and paclitaxel, work in different
ways to stop the growth of tumor cells, either by killing the cells or stopping them from
dividing. Monoclonal antibodies, such as bevacizumab, can block tumor growth in different
ways. Some block the ability of tumor cells to grow and spread. Others find tumor cells and
help kill them or carry tumor-killing substances to them. Bevacizumab may also stop the
growth of tumor cells by blocking blood flow to the tumor. It is not yet known whether giving
carboplatin and paclitaxel together with bevacizumab is more effective than carboplatin and
paclitaxel alone in treating patients with ovarian epithelial cancer, fallopian tube cancer,
or primary peritoneal cavity cancer.

PURPOSE: This randomized phase III trial is studying carboplatin, paclitaxel, and bevacizumab
to see how well they work compared with carboplatin and paclitaxel alone in treating patients
with newly diagnosed ovarian epithelial cancer, fallopian tube cancer, or primary peritoneal
cavity cancer.
