VNP40101M in Treating Patients With Advanced Solid Tumors or Lymphomas
RATIONALE: Drugs used in chemotherapy use different ways to stop cancer cells from dividing so they stop growing or die.
PURPOSE: Phase I trial to study the effectiveness of VNP40101M in treating patients who have advanced solid tumors or lymphomas.
Small Intestine Cancer
Unspecified Adult Solid Tumor, Protocol Specific
|Study Design:||Primary Purpose: Treatment|
|Official Title:||A Phase I Trial of VNP4010M, A Novel Alkylating Agent for Patients With Advanced or Metastatic Cancer|
|Study Start Date:||March 2001|
- Determine the maximum tolerated dose of VNP40101M in patients with advanced solid tumors or lymphomas.
- Determine the toxic effects of this drug in these patients.
- Determine the pharmacokinetics of this drug in these patients.
- Determine the anti-tumor effects of this drug in these patients.
OUTLINE: This is a dose-escalation study.
Patients receive VNP40101M IV over 15 minutes on day 1. Treatment repeats every 4 weeks for up to 8 courses in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity.
Cohorts of 1-6 patients receive escalating doses of VNP40101M until the maximum tolerated dose (MTD) is determined. The MTD is defined as the highest dose at which no more than 1 of 6 patients experiences dose-limiting toxicity.
PROJECTED ACCRUAL: Approximately 20-30 patients will be accrued for this study.
