A Phase II Evaluation of Dalantercept (NSC #757172), a Novel Soluble Recombinant Activin Receptor-Like Kinase 1 (ALK-1) Inhibitor Receptor-Fusion Protein, in the Treatment of Persistent or Recurrent Epithelial Ovarian, Fallopian Tube, or Primary Peritoneal Carcinoma

This phase II trial studies the side effects and how well dalantercept works in treating
patients with ovarian epithelial, fallopian tube, or primary peritoneal cavity cancer that
has returned. Dalantercept may stop the growth of tumor cells by blocking some of the enzymes
needed for cell growth. Dalantercept may also stop the growth of tumor cells by blocking
blood flow to the tumor.

PRIMARY OBJECTIVES:

I. To estimate the proportion of patients who survive progression-free for at least 6 months
and the proportion of patients who have objective tumor response (complete or partial) in
patients with persistent or recurrent epithelial ovarian, fallopian tube, or primary
peritoneal carcinoma, treated with dalantercept.

II. To determine the frequency and severity of adverse events associated with treatment with
dalantercept as assessed by the Active Version of the National Cancer Institute (NCI) Common
Terminology Criteria for Adverse Events (CTCAE).

SECONDARY OBJECTIVES:

I. To determine the duration of progression-free survival (PFS) and overall survival (OS).

TERTIARY OBJECTIVES:

I. To measure the expression of vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF), fibroblast growth
factor (FGF), platelet-derived growth factor (PDGF), transforming growth factor-beta (TGF-B),
activin receptor-like kinase 1 (ALK1), cluster of differentiation 105 (CD105), and other
markers via immunohistochemistry (IHC) and determine if there is correlation between
expression and clinical response to treatment.

II. To determine the correlation between ALK1 gene expression, other markers, and clinical
response to treatment.

III. To determine the correlation between concentration of VEGF, bone morphogenetic protein
(BMP)9, BMP10, and ALK1 in pre-cycle 1 plasma using an enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay
(ELISA), and clinical response to treatment.

OUTLINE:

Patients receive dalantercept subcutaneously (SC) on day 1. Courses repeat every 3 weeks 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.

Inclusion Criteria:

- Patients must have recurrent or persistent epithelial ovarian, fallopian tube, or
primary peritoneal carcinoma; histologic documentation of the original primary tumor
is required via the pathology report

- All patients must have measurable disease as defined by Response Evaluation Criteria
in Solid Tumors (RECIST) 1.1; measurable disease is defined as at least one lesion
that can be accurately measured in at least one dimension (longest diameter to be
recorded); each lesion must be >= 10 mm when measured by computed tomography (CT),
magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) or caliper measurement by clinical exam; or >= 20 mm
when measured by chest x-ray; lymph nodes must be >= 15 mm in short axis when measured
by CT or MRI

- Patient must have at least one "target lesion" to be used to assess response on this
protocol as defined by RECIST 1.1; tumors within a previously irradiated field will be
designated as "non-target" lesions unless progression is documented or a biopsy is
obtained to confirm persistence at least 90 days following completion of radiation
therapy

- Patients must not be eligible for a higher priority Gynecologic Oncology Group (GOG)
protocol, if one exists; in general, this would refer to any active GOG phase III
protocol or Rare Tumor protocol for the same patient population

- Patients who have received one prior regimen must have a GOG performance status of 0,
1, or 2; patients who have received two prior regimens must have a GOG performance
status of 0 or 1

- Recovery from effects of recent surgery, radiotherapy, or chemotherapy:

- Patients should be free of active infection requiring antibiotics (with the
exception of uncomplicated urinary tract infection [UTI])

- Any hormonal therapy directed at the malignant tumor must be discontinued at
least one week prior to registration; continuation of hormone replacement therapy
is permitted

- Any other prior therapy directed at the malignant tumor, including immunologic
agents, must be discontinued at least three weeks prior to registration; therapy
with nitrosoureas or mitomycin must be discontinued at least six weeks prior to
registration

- Any prior radiation therapy must be discontinued at least four weeks prior to
registration

- At least 4 weeks must have elapsed since the patient underwent any major surgery
(e.g., major: laparotomy, laparoscopy); there is no delay in treatment for minor
procedures (e.g., central venous access catheter placement)

- Prior therapy:

- Patients must have had one prior platinum-based chemotherapeutic regimen for
management of primary disease containing carboplatin, cisplatin, or another
organoplatinum compound; this initial treatment may have included intraperitoneal
therapy, consolidation, biologic/targeted (non-cytotoxic) agents (e.g.,
bevacizumab) or extended therapy administered after surgical or non-surgical
assessment

- Patients are allowed to receive, but are not required to receive, one additional
cytotoxic regimen for management of recurrent or persistent disease

- Patients who have received only one prior cytotoxic regimen (platinum-based
regimen for management of primary disease), must have a platinum-free interval of
less than 12 months, or have progressed during platinum-based therapy, or have
persistent disease after a platinum-based therapy

- Patients are allowed to receive, but are not required to receive,
biologic/targeted (non-cytotoxic) therapy as part of their primary treatment
regimen

- Patients must have NOT received any biologic/targeted (non-cytotoxic) therapy
targeting the VEGF pathway for management of recurrent or persistent disease

- For the purposes of this study, poly (ADP-ribose) polymerase (PARP) inhibitors
will be considered ?cytotoxic?; patients are allowed to receive, but are not
required to receive, PARP inhibitors for management of primary or
recurrent/persistent disease (either alone or in combination with cytotoxic
chemotherapy); PARP inhibitors will NOT count as a prior regimen when given alone

- Absolute neutrophil count (ANC) greater than or equal to 1,500/mcl
