  Purpose

A prospective phase I and consecutive phase II, twoarm, randomized multi-center trial of temsirolimus in combination with pioglitazone, etoricoxib and metronomic low-dose trofosfamide versus dacarbazine (DTIC) in patients with advanced melanoma

Phase I: To determine the dose of temsirolimus to be used in phase II part of the study

Phase II:

To determine overall survival Secondary objectives

  • To evalulate response rate
  • To evaluate time to progression (TTP)
  • To evalulate time to partial response (time to PR or better)(TPR)
  • To evaluate quality of life
  • To evaluate tolerability and safety

Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: Experimental Arm
Temsirolimus: 15 or 25 mg iv weekly , week 1+.In the phase I part of the study the finally used dosis will be determined. Pioglitazone (Actos) 60 mg p.o. daily, day 1+. Etoricoxib (Arcoxia) 60 mg p.o. daily, day 1+ Trofosfamide (Ixoten) 50 mg p.o. thrice daily as metronomic angiostatically and immunomodulatory acting therapy, day 1+.
