Combination Chemotherapy in Treating Patients With Advanced Solid Tumors
RATIONALE: Drugs used in chemotherapy use different ways to stop tumor cells from dividing so they stop growing or die. Combining more than one drug may kill more tumor cells.
PURPOSE: Phase I trial to study the effectiveness of combination chemotherapy in treating patients who have advanced solid tumors.
|Unspecified Adult Solid Tumor, Protocol Specific||Drug: gemcitabine hydrochloride Drug: pegylated liposomal doxorubicin hydrochloride Drug: vinorelbine ditartrate||Phase 1|
|Study Design:||Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment
Masking: Open Label
Primary Purpose: Treatment
|Official Title:||Phase I Trial of Combination Pegylated Liposomal Doxorubicin (Doxil), Vinorelbine, and Gemcitabine|
|Study Start Date:||February 2000|
|Study Completion Date:||February 2005|
|Primary Completion Date:||April 2003 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)|
Drug: gemcitabine hydrochloride
- Determine the pharmacokinetic profile of gemcitabine, doxorubicin HCl liposome, and vinorelbine in patients with advanced solid tumors.
- Determine the maximum tolerated dose of this regimen in these patients.
- Determine the toxicity profile of this regimen in these patients.
OUTLINE: This is a dose escalation study.
Patients receive doxorubicin HCl liposome IV over 1-2.5 hours on day 1, gemcitabine IV over 30 minutes on days 1 and 8, and vinorelbine IV over 6-10 minutes on days 1 and 15. Treatment continues every 28 days in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity.
Cohorts of 3-6 patients receive escalating doses of doxorubicin HCl liposome, gemcitabine, and vinorelbine until the maximum tolerated dose (MTD) is determined. The MTD is defined as the dose preceding that at which 2 of 3 or 2 of 6 patients experience dose limiting toxicity.
Patients are followed every 3 months for up to 1 year.
PROJECTED ACCRUAL: Approximately 9-24 patients will be accrued for this study within 12-18 months.
