Perifosine in Treating Patients With Locally Advanced, Unresectable, or Metastatic Pancreatic Cancer
RATIONALE: Perifosine may stop the growth of tumor cells by blocking the enzymes necessary for tumor cell growth.
PURPOSE: Phase II trial to study the effectiveness of perifosine in treating patients who have locally advanced, unresectable, or metastatic pancreatic cancer.
|Study Design:||Masking: Open Label
Primary Purpose: Treatment
|Official Title:||Phase II Trial Of Perifosine In Locally Advanced, Unresectable Or Metastatic Pancreatic Adenocarcinoma|
|Study Start Date:||July 2003|
|Study Completion Date:||August 2005|
- Determine the activity of perifosine, in terms of objective response, in patients with locally advanced, unresectable, or metastatic pancreatic cancer.
- Determine the response duration, progression-free survival, and overall survival of patients treated with this drug.
- Determine the toxicity of this drug in these patients.
OUTLINE: This is a multicenter study.
Patients receive oral perifosine every 6 hours for a total of 6 doses and then once daily in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity.
Patients are followed every 3 months for 3 years.
PROJECTED ACCRUAL: A total of 35-84 patients will be accrued for this study within 21 months.
