RATIONALE: Drugs used in chemotherapy use different ways to stop tumor cells from dividing so they stop growing or die. CT-2584 may stop the growth of prostate cancer by stopping blood flow to the tumor.

PURPOSE: Randomized phase II trial to study the effectiveness of CT-2584 in treating patients who have metastatic prostate cancer that has not responded to previous therapy.

Condition Intervention Phase
Prostate Cancer Drug: CT-2584 Drug: chemotherapy Phase 2

Study Type: Interventional
Study Design: Allocation: Randomized
Primary Purpose: Treatment
Official Title: A Phase II Study of CT-2584 Mesylate in Patients With Hormone Refractory Prostate Cancer

Estimated Enrollment: 80
Study Start Date: December 1998
Detailed Description:

OBJECTIVES: I. Compare the efficacy, safety, and pharmacokinetics of 2 different treatment schedules of CT-2584 in patients with hormone refractory, metastatic adenocarcinoma of the prostate.

OUTLINE: This is a randomized, multicenter study. Patients are randomized to 1 of 2 treatment arms: Arm I: Patients receive CT-2584 IV over 6 hours daily for 3 days every 3 weeks. Arm II: Patients receive CT-2584 IV over 6 hours once every 7 days for 3 weeks. Courses repeat every 3 weeks in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity.

PROJECTED ACCRUAL: Approximately 80 patients will be accrued for this study.
