Inclusion Criteria

    1. Female patients ?18 years of age 2. Histologically confirmed epithelial ovarian cancer (mucinous adenocarcinoma, clear cell carcinomas and grade 1 serous tumors are excluded) and documented disease. 3. Patients must have platinum-resistant disease 4. Patients must have disease that is measurable according to RECIST 1.1 and require chemotherapy treatment. 5. ECOG PS 0-2. 6. Adequate hematological functions:
  • ANC ? 1000/mm3
  • PLT ? 100,000/mm3
  • PT and PTT (seconds) < 1.2 X ULN. Patients who are anticoagulated do not need to meet criteria for PT and PTT.

Exclusion Criteria

    1. Non-epithelial tumors (Carcino-sarcomas are excluded) 2. Ovarian tumors with low malignant potential (i.e. borderline tumors) and mucinous tumors. 3. History of other clinically active malignancy within 5 years of enrollment, except for tumors with a negligible risk for metastasis or death, such as adequately controlled basal-cell carcinoma, adequately controlled, non-metastatic squamous-cell carcinoma of the skin, or carcinoma in situ of the cervix or breast. 4. Previous ovarian cancer treatment with >3 anticancer regimens. 5. Any prior radiotherapy to the pelvis or abdomen. 6. Inadequate liver function, defined as:
  • Serum (total) bilirubin > ULN (Exception: documented Gilbert's disease patients can be enrolled)
  • Alkaline phosphatase, AST/SGOT or ALT/SGPT ?2.5 x ULN (or ? 5 x ULN in the presence of liver metastases). 7. Inadequate renal function, defined as:
  • Serum creatinine > ULN OR
  • Calculated creatinine clearance < 50ml/min (by Cockroft & Gault formula and renal function 7. New York Heart Association (NYHA) Grade II or greater congestive heart failure 8. History of myocardial infarction or unstable angina within 6 months prior to day of randomization. 9. History of stroke or transient ischemic attack within 6 months prior to day of randomization. 10. Patient with proliferative and/or vascular retinopathy 11. Known brain metastases 12. History of hemoptysis or active GI bleeding within 6 month prior to day of randomization 13. Evidence of bleeding diathesis or significant coagulopathy (in the absence of therapeutic anticoagulation). 14. History of abdominal fistula or gastrointestinal perforation. 15.
