Details and patient eligibility


This study will investigate the efficacy as well as the safety of RAD001 in combination with bevacizumab for recurrent ovarian, peritoneal, and fallopian tube cancer. RAD001 will be taken orally once daily and bevacizumab will be administered once every 14 days. The study will be conducted over a period of about 3 to 4 years.

Full description

In this trial, approximately 50 patients will receive the study drug, RAD001 in combination with bevacizumab (Avastin)chemotherapy. RAD001 will be taken orally once daily and bevacizumab will be administered intravenously once every 14 days. In addition to study treatment, a few blood samples and a sample of the patients tumor from a previous surgery if available will be collected for research.
