SJG-136 in Treating Patients With Advanced Solid Tumors
This phase I trial is studying the side effects and best dose of SJG-136 in treating patients with advanced solid tumors. Drugs used in chemotherapy work in different ways to stop the growth of tumor cells, either by killing the cells or by stopping them from dividing.

- MTD defined as the dose preceding that at which 2 of 3 or 2 of 6 patients experience dose-limiting toxicity [ Time Frame: 21 days ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
- Bivariate response variable (tumor response) evaluated by the Response Evaluation Criteria in Solid Tumors (RECIST) [ Time Frame: Up to 5 years ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

I. Determine the maximum tolerated dose and recommended phase II dose of SJG-136 in patients with metastatic or unresectable solid tumors.
II. Determine the safety and dose-limiting toxic effects of this drug in these patients.
III. Determine, preliminarily, the efficacy of this drug in these patients.
I. Determine the pharmacokinetic parameters of this drug and its metabolites in these patients.
II. Correlate pharmacokinetic parameters with clinical effects of this drug in these patients.
OUTLINE: This is an open-label, dose-escalation study.
Patients receive SJG-136 IV over 20 minutes once daily on days 1-3. Courses repeat every 21 days in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity.
Cohorts of 1-6 patients receive escalating doses of SJG-136 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. At least 6 patients are treated at the MTD.
After completion of study treatment, patients are followed for 30 days.
