GOG 0238: A Randomized Trial of Pelvic Irradiation with or without Concurrent Weekly Cisplatin in Patients with Pelvic-Only Recurrence of Carcinoma of the Uterine Corpus
Aims: The purpose of this study is to compare a combination of radiation therapy and weekly treatment of the chemotherapy drug cisplatin to the standard treatment for this type of cancer which is radiation therapy alone. This study will also evaluate the side effects of combining radiation therapy and chemotherapy with cisplatin. 
Diagnosis: Recurrent Endometrial Cancer 
Principal Investigator: Jean Hurteau, MD

GOG 3005/AbbVie M13-694: A Phase 3 Placebo-Controlled Study of Carboplatin/Paclitaxel With or Without Concurrent and Continuation Maintenance Veliparib (PARP inhibitor) in Subjects with Previously Untreated Stages III or IV High-Grade Serous Epithelial Ovarian, Fallopian Tube, or Primary Peritoneal Cancer
Aims: The purpose of this study is to compare the combination of carboplatin, paclitaxel and veliparib to carboplatin, paclitaxel and placebo followed by continued therapy with either veliparib or placebo to determine if it slows the progression of your cancer.  A BRCA gene test will be required for your participation to further assess treatment response.
Diagnosis: Previously untreated stage 3 or 4 ovarian, fallopian tube, or primary peritoneal cancer

GOG 0274: The OUTBACK Trial: A Phase III Trial of Adjuvant Chemotherapy as Primary Treatment for Locally Advanced Cervical Cancer Compared to Chemoradiation Alone: The Outback Trial
Aims: The purpose of this study is to compare standard treatment; radiation therapy combined with the chemotherapy drug cisplatin (called chemo-radiation), to standard treatment plus additional investigational chemotherapy with the FDA approved agents, carboplatin and paclitaxel. The study will see if the addition of these chemotherapy agents will reduces the risk of tumor recurrence and improves overall survival. 
Diagnosis: Advanced Cervical Cancer
Principal Investigator: Jean Hurteau, MD
IRB Approval Number: EH12-455

GOG 0277: A Phase III Randomized Trial of Gemcitabine (NSC #613327) plus Docetaxel (NSC #628503) followed by Doxorubicin (NSC # 123127) versus Observation for Uterus-Limited, High-Grade Uterine Leiomyosarcoma
Aims: In this study, we are looking to see if giving chemotherapy with gemcitabine plus docetaxel, followed by doxorubicin, to patients whose leiomyosarcoma was found only in the uterus, decreases the chance that the leiomyosarcoma will come back (recur).
Diagnosis: Uterus-Limited, High-Grade Uterine Leiomyosarcoma

GOG 0286B: A Randomized Phase II/III Study of Paclitaxel/Carboplatin/Metformin (NSC#91485) Versus Paclitaxel/Carboplatin/Placebo as Initial Therapy for Measureable Stage II or IVA, Stage IVB, or Recurrent Endometrial Cancer
Aims: The purpose of this study is to find out if the drug combination paclitaxel, carboplatin and metformin works better than paclitaxel and carboplatin alone in treating your type of cancer and to find out what side effects are caused by treatment with these drugs.
Diagnosis: Measurable Stage III or IVA, Stage IVB, or Recurrent Endometrial Cancer
Principal Investigator: Jean Hurteau, MD

UC13-1235: A Randomized Placebo Controlled Phase II Trial of Metformin in Conjunction with Chemotherapy
Aims: The purpose of this study is to see if participants who receive 6 cycles of carboplatin plus either paclitaxel or docetaxel (standard chemotherapy ) plus metformin followed by metformin alone continued after the chemotherapy will have an improved outcome compared to those receiving 6 cycles of carboplatin plus either paclitaxel or docetaxel (standard chemotherapy) plus placebo followed by placebo alone continued after chemotherapy.
