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 ISIS 3521 in treating patients who have advanced, unresectable, or metastatic non-small cell lung cancer or unresectable or metastatic melanoma.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Lung Cancer Melanoma (Skin) Biological: ISIS 3521 Phase 2

Detailed Description:

OBJECTIVES: I. Determine the complete and partial response rates and duration of response in patients with locally advanced, unresectable, or metastatic non-small cell lung cancer or unresectable or metastatic melanoma treated with ISIS 3521. II. Determine safety of ISIS 3521 in these patients.

OUTLINE: This is a multicenter study. Patients are stratified by disease type. Patients receive ISIS 3521 IV over 21 days followed by 7 days of rest. Courses repeat every 28 days in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity.

PROJECTED ACCRUAL: A total of 28-50 patients (14-25 per stratum) will be accrued for this study.

Study Type : Interventional  (Clinical Trial)
Estimated Enrollment : 50 participants
Primary Purpose: Treatment
Official Title: Phase II Trial With ISIS 3521/CGP 64128A in Patients With Malignant Melanoma and Non Small Cell Lung Cancer
Study Start Date : June 1998
