Summary
Brief summary
This study is investigating the safety of administering heated (42 degrees Celsius) versus normal temperature (37 degrees Celsius) chemotherapy during surgery for ovarian cancer patients.

Who is it for?
You may be eligible for this trial if you are a female aged 18-75 years who has been diagnosed with primary stage III epithelial ovarian, fallopian tube or peritoneal cancer with disease that is limited to the abdominal cavity. You must have had 3-4 cycles of pre-operative platinum-based chemotherapy and be fit for surgery.

Study details
Participants will receive cisplatin chemotherapy administered intraperitoneally to the abdominal cavity during surgery. They will randomly be allocated to either a hyperthermic arm, who will receive the chemotherapy drug heated to 42 degrees Celsius, or a normothermic arm who will receive the drug at normal body temperature of 37 degrees Celsius. Follow-up information about adverse events, quality of life and disease outcomes will be collected following the surgery.

Information from this study will be used to design future trials evaluating the efficacy of heated chemotherapy.
