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 irofulven in treating patients who have persistent or recurrent refractory endometrial cancer.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Endometrial Cancer Drug: irofulven Phase 2

Detailed Description:

OBJECTIVES: I. Assess the antitumor activity of 6-hydroxymethylacylfulvene in patients with persistent or recurrent, refractory endometrial carcinoma. II. Determine the nature and degree of toxicity of this treatment in these patients.

OUTLINE: This is a multicenter study. Patients receive 6-hydroxymethylacylfulvene IV over 5 minutes on days 1-4. Treatment continues every 28 days in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity. Patients are followed every 3 months for 2 years and then every 6 months for 3 years.

PROJECTED ACCRUAL: Approximately 19-51 patients will be accrued for this study.

Study Type : Interventional  (Clinical Trial)
Primary Purpose: Treatment
Official Title: A Phase II Evaluation of MGI-114 in the Treatment of Recurrent or Persistent Endometrial Carcinoma
Study Start Date : August 2000
Actual Primary Completion Date : October 2004
