This phase II trial studies how well veliparib works in treating patients with epithelial ovarian, fallopian tube, or primary peritoneal cancer that has come back or does not respond to treatment. Veliparib may stop the growth of tumor cells by blocking some of the enzymes needed for cell growth.
A Phase II Evaluation of the Poly (ADP-Ribose) Polymerase (PARP)-1 and -2 Inhibitor Veliparib (ABT-888) (NSC#737664) in the Treatment of Persistent or Recurrent Epithelial Ovarian, Fallopian Tube, or Primary Peritoneal Cancer Patients Who Carry a Germline BRCA1 or BRCA2 Mutation
I. To estimate the proportion of patients who have objective tumor response (complete or partial).
II. To determine the frequency and severity of adverse events associated with treatment with veliparib (ABT-888) as assessed by the Active Version of the National Cancer Institute (NCI) Common Terminology Criteria for Adverse Events (CTCAE) version 4.0
I. To determine the duration of progression-free survival (PFS) and overall survival (OS).
II. To determine the proportion of patients who survive progression-free for at least 6 months.
I. To explore the association between single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) in deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA) repair genes (e.g., breast cancer [BRCA]1, Fanconi) and clinical characteristics, response, and patient outcome (PFS and OS).
Patients receive veliparib orally (PO) twice daily (BID) on days 1-28. Courses repeat every 28 days in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity.
After completion of study treatment, patients are followed up every 3 months for 2 years and then every 6 months for 3 years.
