Twenty-four evaluable patients with advanced or recurrent epithelial ovarian carcinoma who progressed on platinum-containing combination chemotherapy were treated with medroxyprogesterone acetate (C.T. Provera) 50 mg orally three times a day until progression of disease. One patient had a partial response (4.2%), 9 patients had stable disease (37.5%), and 14 (58.3%) had increasing disease. The 95% upper confidence limit for response is less than or equal to 18.3%. There was no toxicity associated with its use. C.T. Provera has limited activity in patients with epithelial ovarian cancer who have failed combination chemotherapy.
