  Purpose

Phase I trial to study the effectiveness of EMD 121974 in treating patients who have HIV-related Kaposi's sarcoma. EMD 121974 may stop the growth of Kaposi's sarcoma by stopping blood flow to the tumor.

Enrollment: 30
Study Start Date: September 2000
Study Completion Date: March 2001
Primary Completion Date: March 2001 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: Arm I
Patients receive EMD 121974 IV twice a week for four weeks. Courses repeat every 4 weeks in the absence of disease progression. Cohorts of 3-6 patients receive escalating doses of EMD 121974 until the maximum tolerated dose (MTD) is determined. The MTD is defined as the dose at which no more than 1 of 6 patients experiences dose limiting toxicities.
Drug: cilengitide

Detailed Description:

OBJECTIVES:

I. Determine the safety and toxicity of EMD 121974 in patients with HIV related Kaposi's sarcoma.

II. Determine the antiangiogenic activity of this drug in these patients. III. Determine the antitumor activity of this drug in these patients. IV. Determine the effect of this drug on CD4 and CD8 cell counts and percentages, and on HIV viral load in these patients.

V. Determine the pharmacokinetics of this drug in these patients.

OUTLINE: This is a dose escalation study.

Patients receive EMD 121974 IV twice a week for four weeks. Courses repeat every 4 weeks in the absence of disease progression. Cohorts of 3-6 patients receive escalating doses of EMD 121974 until the maximum tolerated dose (MTD) is determined. The MTD is defined as the dose at which no more than 1 of 6 patients experiences dose limiting toxicities.

Patients are followed for at least 1 month.

PROJECTED ACCRUAL: A total of 18-30 patients will be accrued for this study within 1 year.
