A Study of DOX-SL in the Treatment of AIDS-Related Kaposi's Sarcoma
Open Trial of DOX-SL (Stealth Liposomal Doxorubicin Hydrochloride) in the Treatment of Moderate to Severe AIDS-Related Kaposi's Sarcoma

To evaluate the safety and effectiveness of Stealth liposomal doxorubicin hydrochloride (DOX-SL) in the long-term treatment of AIDS-related Kaposi's sarcoma (KS) in patients who previously had good responses to DOX-SL in controlled studies of limited duration, or those with KS who discontinued treatment with another Kaposi's sarcoma therapy because of inadequate efficacy or unacceptable toxicity. To provide a defined protocol for Kaposi's sarcoma patients for whom DOX-SL therapy is indicated.

Patients receive DOX-SL every 3 weeks for a maximum of 20 cycles (including any cycles from a previous DOX-SL study). KS lesions are evaluated prior to administration of each treatment, at the end of the final treatment cycle, and at 4 weeks following the end of the final treatment. Patients who respond will be followed every 2 months for up to 1 year. Study treatment may be interrupted for up to 4 months because of complete response, development of opportunistic infections, or adverse drug effects.

Inclusion Criteria

Concurrent Medication:

Allowed:

  • Prophylaxis for PCP, cryptococcal, and herpes infections, and antiretroviral therapy provided these doses have been stable for at least 1 month.
  • Maintenance therapy for tuberculosis, fungal, and herpes infections.
  • Therapy for new episodes of tuberculosis, fungal, and herpes infections except with potentially myelotoxic chemotherapy.
  • Foscarnet or ganciclovir for CMV infection.
  • Colony stimulating factors and erythropoietin.

Patients must have:

  • Moderate to severe AIDS-related Kaposi's sarcoma.
  • Documented anti-HIV antibody.
  • No active opportunistic infection with mycobacteria, cytomegalovirus, toxoplasma, Pneumocystis carinii, or other microorganisms (if under treatment with myelotoxic drugs).

NOTE:

  • Eligible KS patients include those who have discontinued therapy in the control arm of a DOX-SL KS study because of side effects or inadequate efficacy OR other KS patients for whom DOX-SL is believed to be indicated. Patients must not be eligible for other Liposome Technology protocols comparing DOX-SL with established therapies.
