RATIONALE: Drugs used in chemotherapy use different ways to stop tumor cells from dividing so they stop growing or die.

PURPOSE: Randomized phase I trial to determine if Ro 31-7453 is more effective with or without food in treating patients who have metastatic solid tumors.

Condition Intervention Phase
Unspecified Adult Solid Tumor, Protocol Specific
Drug: MKC-1
Phase 1

Study Type: Interventional
Study Design: Primary Purpose: Treatment
Official Title: The Food-Effect Bioavailability Study of Ro 31-7453, a Novel Cell Cycle Inhibitor, in Stable Patient Volunteers With Solid Tumors

Primary Completion Date: October 2001 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Detailed Description:

OBJECTIVES: I. Assess the impact of food on the bioavailability of Ro 31-7453 in patients with locally advanced or metastatic solid tumors.

OUTLINE: This is a randomized, crossover study. Patients are randomized to one of two treatment arms. Arm I: Patients receive oral Ro 31-7453 under fasting conditions on day 1. After a 1-week washout period, patients receive oral Ro 31-7453 under fed conditions. Arm II: Patients receive fed treatment as in arm I on day 1. After a 1-week washout period, patients receive fasted treatment as in arm I. Both arms: At the start of week 3, patients may continue to receive oral Ro 31-7453 every 12 hours on days 1-4. Treatment repeats every 3 weeks for at least 24 weeks in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity. Patients are followed at 7 days.

PROJECTED ACCRUAL: A total of 10 patients (5 per arm) will be accrued for this study.
