A Phase II Randomized Open Label Study of MM-121 in Combination With Paclitaxel Versus Paclitaxel Alone in Patients With Platinum Resistant/ Refractory Advanced Ovarian Cancers


Brief Summary
To determine whether the combination of MM-121 plus paclitaxel is more effective than paclitaxel alone

Detailed Description
This is a multicenter, open-label, randomized, Phase II study of MM-121 in patients with platinum resistant or refractory recurrent/advanced ovarian cancers. Up to 210 patients will be randomized (2:1) to receive MM-121 plus paclitaxel or paclitaxel alone.


Phase 2 - takes the treatment one step further, assessing the activity of a particular therapy in a disease, often building upon leads from the Phase I trial. While patients are generally required to be previously untreated, participation in a Phase II trial doesn't usually preclude the patient from getting the standard treatment after they've received the investigational agent. At best they are allowed to get a new drug they wouldn't be able to get otherwise that may turn out to be better for their disease.
