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 rebeccamycin analog in treating children who have relapsed or refractory neuroblastoma.
|Condition or disease||Intervention/treatment||Phase|
|Neuroblastoma||Drug: becatecarin||Phase 2|
- Determine the response rate to rebeccamycin analogue in children with relapsed or refractory neuroblastoma.
- Determine the toxicity of this drug in these patients.
- Identify and establish in vitro biologic correlates of clinical responses and toxicity of this drug in these patients.
OUTLINE: Patients receive rebeccamycin analogue IV over 1 hour once on days 1-5. Treatment repeats every 3 weeks for at least 2 courses in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity.
PROJECTED ACCRUAL: This study will accrue up to 30 patients within 1.5 years.
