Scientific title

ICON8: An international phase III randomised trial of dose fractionated chemotherapy compared to standard three weekly chemotherapy, following immediate primary surgery or as part of delayed primary surgery, for women with newly diagnosed epithelial ovarian, fallopian tube or primary peritoneal cancer
and
ICON8B: A phase III randomised trial investigating the combination of dose-fractionated chemotherapy and bevacizumab compared to either strategy alone for the first-line treatment of women with newly diagnosed high-risk stage III-IV epithelial ovarian, fallopian tube or primary peritoneal cancer

Acronym

ICON8 and ICON8B

Study hypothesis

Ovarian cancer is the most lethal gynaecological malignancy in the UK. Most patients respond well to firstline treatment, surgery and chemotherapy, but the majority go on to develop relapsed disease and the 5-year survival rate for patients with advanced disease is only 30%. There is a significant need to develop more effective first-line treatments.

ICON8:
Standard firstline chemotherapy is a combination of two drugs: carboplatin and paclitaxel, given once every 3 weeks for 6 cycles. However, giving these agents weekly may be more effective; this is called dose-fractionated chemotherapy. In ICON8 two dose-fractionated chemotherapy regimens are compared with standard carboplatin-paclitaxel.

The main outcome measures are whether dose-fractionated chemotherapy extends the time until ovarian cancer relapses (improved progression-free survival) and whether women who receive it live longer (improved overall survival). Secondary outcome measures are comparative toxicity, impact on quality of life and costeffectiveness. Two interim-analyses are planned: the first looking at feasibility and safety of the dose-fractionated regimens; and the second at their activity.

Women with newly diagnosed epithelial ovarian, fallopian tube or primary peritoneal cancers are eligible; including those with highrisk early stage (FIGO IC/IIA) or advanced (FIGO IIBIV) cancers. They can enter the trial either following primary surgery or with a plan to undergo delayed primary surgery between the 3rd and 4th cycles of chemotherapy. Women will be randomised to receive either: standard chemotherapy; or carboplatin given 3-weekly with weekly paclitaxel; or both carboplatin and paclitaxel weekly. Treatment duration in all three arms is 18 weeks.

ICON8B (added 12/08/2015):
As of 2014, the incorporation of bevacizumab and weekly dose dense paclitaxel respectively into the first-line management of ovarian cancer have shown improved survival in phase III clinical trials, hence both of these approaches can be considered new standards of care. They do however have markedly different economic implications for healthcare providers, and also place distinct burdens on patients with respect to treatment-related toxicity and duration of therapy. Hence there is an urgent need to compare these treatment approaches in a randomised trial. In ICON8B standard 3-weekly carboplatin-paclitaxel and bevacizumab will be compared to dose fractionated chemotherapy with or without bevacizumab in a randomised controlled trial.

The main outcome measures are to determine whether dose-fractionated chemotherapy with bevacizumab extends the time until ovarian cancer relapses (improved progression-free survival) and whether women who receive it live longer (improved overall survival). Secondary outcome measures are comparative toxicity, impact on quality of life and cost effectiveness. One interim analysis is planned after 50 delayed primary surgery patients have been randomised to each trial arm to establish the safety of bevacizumab in the neo-adjuvant treatment of patients undergoing delayed primary ovarian cancer surgery.

On 12/08/2015 the following changes were made to the trial record:
1. The overall trial end date was changed from 28/04/2014 to 01/05/2022.
2. The target number of participants was changed from 1485 to 2655.
3. Australia, New Zealand, Mexico, Korea and Ireland were added to the countries of recruitment.

Results and Publications

Publication and dissemination plan

For ICON8, results of the stage 1 feasibility and safety analysis will be published. After the stage 2 analysis, advice will be sought from the Trial Steering Committee with regards to publication of those results. The progression-free survival analysis is expected to occur 1 year after the last patient is randomised, and the overall survival analysis is expected to occur 3 years after the last patient is randomised. The results of the progression-free and overall survival analyses will be published separately, and as soon as possible after each analysis has occurred.

For the ICON8B cohort, results of the safety analysis in Delayed Primary Surgery patients will be published. The progression-free survival analysis is expected to occur 1 year after the last patient is randomised, and the overall survival analysis is expected to occur 3 years after the last patient is randomised. The results of the progression-free and overall survival analyses will be published separately, and as soon as possible after each analysis has occurred.

IPD sharing statement:
Data will be made available on request following the MRC CTU Data Sharing Policy. Data release applications will be reviewed by the Trial Management Group and Trial Steering Committee before final approval. Data sharing contracts will be put in place between the applicant and UCL.
