Brief Summary:

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 PS-341 in treating patients who have advanced solid tumors or lymphoma that have not responded to previous treatment.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Lymphoma Small Intestine Cancer Unspecified Adult Solid Tumor, Protocol Specific Drug: bortezomib Phase 1

Detailed Description:

OBJECTIVES: I. Determine the dose-limiting toxicity and maximum tolerated dose of PS-341 in patients with advanced solid tumors or lymphoma. II. Evaluate the pharmacodynamics of this drug by measuring 20S proteasome inhibition in these patients. III. Assess changes in P53 or P27, and possibly E2F-1 and cyclin E, in patients with lymphoma in response to this drug. IV. Evaluate objective tumor response to this drug in these patients. V. Evaluate the relationship between toxicity and 20S proteasome inhibition in blood and in accessible tumor tissue in these patients. VI. Evaluate response to treatment with this drug in patients with measurable or evaluable disease.

OUTLINE: This is a dose-escalation, multicenter study. Patients receive PS-341 IV on days 1 and 4. Treatment repeats every 14 days for at least 2 courses in the absence of unacceptable toxicity or disease progression. Patients with stable or responding disease may receive additional courses at the discretion of the treating physician. Cohorts of 3-6 patients receive escalating doses of PS-341 until the maximum tolerated dose (MTD) is determined. The MTD is defined as the dose at which 2 of 3 or 6 patients experience dose-limiting toxicity. Patients are followed at 4 weeks.

PROJECTED ACCRUAL: A maximum of 27 patients will be accrued for this study.
