Summary
Brief summary
RATIONALE: Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as carboplatin, work in different ways to stop
the growth of tumor cells, either by killing the cells or by stopping them from dividing.

PURPOSE: This randomized phase III trial is comparing different doses of carboplatin to see
how well they work in treating patients with stage IC, stage II, stage III, or stage IV
ovarian, fallopian tube, or primary peritoneal cancer.
