N2004-03: Intravenous Fenretinide in Treating Young Patients With Recurrent or Resistant Neuroblastoma
A Phase I Study of Intravenous (Emulsion) Fenretinide in Children With Recurrent or Resistant Neuroblastoma

RATIONALE: Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as fenretinide, work in different ways to stop the growth of tumor cells, either by killing the cells or by stopping them from dividing.

PURPOSE: This phase I trial is studying the side effects and best dose of intravenous fenretinide in treating young patients with recurrent or resistant neuroblastoma.

OBJECTIVES:

Primary

  • To determine the maximum tolerated dose of fenretinide when given as a continuous intravenous infusion in young patients with recurrent and/or resistant neuroblastoma.
  • To define the toxicities of this drug in these patients.
  • To determine the plasma pharmacokinetics of this drug in these patients.

Secondary

  • To determine the response rate in patients treated with this drug.
  • To determine the bioavailability of fenretinide in normal peripheral blood mononuclear cells as a surrogate marker for drug bioavailability to tumor tissue.

OUTLINE: This is a multicenter study.

Patients receive fenretinide IV continuously over 120 hours on days 0-4. Treatment repeats every 21 days for 6 courses in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity.

Blood samples are collected periodically for pharmacokinetic analysis by high performance liquid chromatography.

After completion of study treatment, patients are followed periodically.

    • Refractory disease (i.e., less than a partial response to front-line therapy that included ≥ 4 courses of chemotherapy)
    • Persistent disease after at least a partial response to front-line therapy (i.e., still has residual disease by MIBG, CT/MRI, or bone marrow biopsy)

      • Biopsy of at least one residual site demonstrating viable neuroblastoma required (tumor by bone marrow morphology is considered adequate documentation of disease)
