PURPOSE: Phase II trial to study the effectiveness of R115777 in treating patients who have progressive, metastatic prostate cancer that has not responded to hormone therapy.
|Condition or disease||Intervention/treatment||Phase|
|Prostate Cancer||Drug: chemotherapy Drug: tipifarnib||Phase 2|
OBJECTIVES: I. Determine whether R115777 has any antitumor activity in patients with progressive, metastatic, hormone refractory prostate cancer. II. Determine the safety and pharmacokinetics of this regimen in this patient population.
OUTLINE: Patients receive oral R115777 every 12 hours on days 1-21. Courses repeat every 4 weeks in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity. Patients are followed every 3 months.
PROJECTED ACCRUAL: A total of 15-30 patients will be accrued for this study within 10-16 months.
