Combination Chemotherapy in Treating Patients With Recurrent or Advanced Cancer of the Uterus
RATIONALE: Drugs used in chemotherapy use different ways to stop tumor cells from dividing so they stop growing or die. Combining more than one drug may kill more tumor cells.
PURPOSE: Phase II trial to study the effectiveness of combination chemotherapy with mitomycin, doxorubicin, and cisplatin in treating patients with recurrent or advanced cancer of the uterus.
Drug: doxorubicin hydrochloride
Drug: mitomycin C
|Study Design:||Primary Purpose: Treatment|
|Official Title:||Evaluation of Mitomycin, Doxorubicin and Cisplatin in the Treatment of Recurrent or Advanced Uterine Sarcomas|
|Study Start Date:||August 1997|
|Primary Completion Date:||January 2000 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)|
OBJECTIVES: I. Estimate the antitumor activity of the combination of mitomycin, doxorubicin, and cisplatin (MAP) in patients with recurrent or advanced uterine sarcomas. II. Determine the nature and degree of toxicity of MAP chemotherapy in this cohort of patients.
OUTLINE: Patients receive IV doxorubicin, mitomycin, and cisplatin over 3 hours once every 3 weeks, for a minimum of 1 course. Patients who have complete response, partial response, or stable disease will continue for at least 3 courses. If side effects are not severe, patients may remain on the study regimen at the investigator's discretion for a maximum of 6 courses. All patients are followed until death.
PROJECTED ACCRUAL: The first stage of accrual is anticipated to accrue 20 evaluable patients in approximately 12 months. If indicated, a second stage will accrue approximately 10 evaluable patients.
