Temozolomide in Treating Young Patients With Refractory or Recurrent Leukemia
RATIONALE: Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as temozolomide, work in different ways to stop cancer cells from dividing so they stop growing or die.
PURPOSE: This phase I trial is studying the side effects and best dose of temozolomide in treating young patients with refractory or recurrent leukemia.
|Study Design:||Masking: Open Label
Primary Purpose: Treatment
|Official Title:||A Phase I Trial Of Temozolomide In Pediatric Patients With Refractory/Recurrent Leukemias|
- Maximum tolerated dose and recommended phase II dose [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
- Toxicity as assessed by CTCAE 3.0 [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
- Pharmacokinetics as assessed by CI, area under the curve (AUC), and half-life (T ½) [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
- Antitumor activity [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
- Biologic activity and mechanisms of resistance [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
|Study Start Date:||March 2004|
- Determine the maximum tolerated dose and recommended phase II dose of temozolomide in pediatric patients with refractory or recurrent leukemia.
- Determine the toxic effects of this drug in these patients.
- Determine the pharmacokinetics of this drug in these patients.
- Determine the antitumor activity of this drug in these patients.
- Determine the biologic activity and mechanism(s) of resistance to this drug in these patients.
OUTLINE: This is an open-label, dose-escalation, multicenter study.
Patients receive oral temozolomide once daily on days 1-5. Treatment repeats every 28 days for up to 12 courses in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity.
Cohorts of 3-6 patients receive escalating doses of temozolomide until the maximum tolerated dose (MTD) is determined. The MTD is defined as the dose preceding that at which 2 of 6 patients experience dose-limiting toxicity.
PROJECTED ACCRUAL: A total of 3-36 patients will be accrued for this study within 18-24 months.
