Combination Chemotherapy in Treating Patients With Solid Tumors
Recruitment status was Active, not recruiting
RATIONALE: Drugs used in chemotherapy use different ways to stop tumor cells from dividing so they stop growing or die. Combining more than one drug may kill more tumor cells.
PURPOSE: Phase I trial to study the effectiveness of combining fenretinide, paclitaxel, and cisplatin in treating patients who have solid tumors that have not responded to previous therapy.
Unspecified Adult Solid Tumor, Protocol Specific
|Study Design:||Primary Purpose: Treatment|
|Official Title:||A Phase I Study Of Fenretinide Combined With Paclitaxel And Cisplatin For The Treatment Of Refractory Solid Tumors|
|Study Start Date:||January 2001|
- Determine the maximum tolerated dose, clinical toxicity, and recommended phase II dose of fenretinide when combined with paclitaxel and cisplatin in patients with refractory solid tumors.
- Determine the pharmacokinetics of this regimen in these patients.
- Determine the therapeutic response to this regimen in these patients.
OUTLINE: This is a dose escalation, multicenter study of fenretinide.
Patients receive oral fenretinide twice daily on days 1-7 and paclitaxel IV over 3 hours followed by cisplatin IV over 2 hours on day 2. On day 8 of course 1, patients also receive fenretinide once in the morning. Treatment repeats every 3 weeks for a maximum of 8 courses in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity. Patients who achieve complete response receive 2 additional courses.
Cohorts of 3-6 patients receive escalating doses of fenretinide until the maximum tolerated dose (MTD) is determined. The MTD is defined as the dose preceding that at which 2 of 3 or 2 of 6 patients experience dose-limiting toxicity.
PROJECTED ACCRUAL: A total of 3-24 patients will be accrued for this study within 1 year.
