Effective second line chemotherapy schedules for recurrent ovarian carcinoma are not available. The combination of cisplatin and VP-16 given as a single dose in such patients gave inconsistent results. Since VP-16 is a dose-schedule dependant drug it was given in this pilot study as a continuous 72 hour infusion at a dose of 100 mg/m2/day. No objective response was observed among 7 patients with refractory or recurrent ovarian carcinoma who received a median of 3 treatment courses.
