Brief Summary:

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

PURPOSE: Phase II trial to study the effectiveness of dolastatin 10 in treating patients with metastatic prostate cancer that has not responded to previous hormone therapy.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Prostate Cancer Drug: dolastatin 10 Phase 2

Detailed Description:

OBJECTIVES: I. Determine the objective response rate in patients with hormone refractory prostate cancer treated with dolastatin 10. II. Determine the toxicity of this regimen in this patient population.

OUTLINE: Patients receive dolastatin 10 IV bolus every 3 weeks. Treatment continues for a minimum of 2 courses in the absence of unacceptable toxicity or disease progression.

PROJECTED ACCRUAL: A total of 15-30 patients will be accrued for this study.

Study Type : Interventional  (Clinical Trial)
