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 pyrazoloacridine in treating patients who have metastatic skin or eye melanoma.
|Condition or disease||Intervention/treatment||Phase|
|Intraocular Melanoma Melanoma (Skin)||Drug: pyrazoloacridine||Phase 2|
- Assess the antitumor activity of pyrazoloacridine (PZA) in chemotherapy naive patients with metastatic cutaneous or ocular melanoma.
- Determine the toxic effects of PZA in this patient population.
- Determine the pharmacokinetic profile of PZA in these patients.
OUTLINE: Patients are stratified into cutaneous or ocular melanoma treatment groups.
Patients receive pyrazoloacridine IV over 3 hours on day 1. Treatment continues every 21 days in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity.
PROJECTED ACCRUAL: Approximately 28-70 patients will be accrued for this study.
