VNP40101M in Treating Patients With Relapsed or Refractory Leukemia or Myelodysplastic Syndrome
A Phase I Trial Of VNP40101M, A Novel Alkylating Agent, For Patients With Hematologic Malignancies

RATIONALE: Drugs used in chemotherapy use different ways to stop cancer cells from dividing so they stop growing or die.

PURPOSE: Phase I trial to study the effectiveness of VNP40101M in treating patients who have relapsed or refractory leukemia or myelodysplastic syndrome.

OBJECTIVES:

  • Determine the toxic effects of VNP40101M in patients with relapsed or refractory leukemia or poor-risk myelodysplastic syndromes.
  • Determine the maximum tolerated dose of this drug in these patients.
  • Determine the pharmacokinetics of this drug in these patients.
  • Determine the antitumor effects of this drug in these patients.

OUTLINE: Patients receive VNP40101M IV over 15 minutes once every 4 weeks.

PROJECTED ACCRUAL: Approximately 40 patients will be accrued for this study.
