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 liposomal lurtotecan in treating patients who have metastatic or locally recurrent head and neck cancer.
|Condition or disease||Intervention/treatment||Phase|
|Head and Neck Cancer||Drug: liposomal lurtotecan||Phase 2|
- Determine the therapeutic activity of lurtotecan liposome in patients with metastatic or loco-regionally recurrent squamous cell carcinoma of the head and neck.
- Determine the objective response, duration of response, and time to progression in patients treated with this drug.
- Determine the toxicity profile of this drug in these patients.
- Determine the possible pharmacokinetic/pharmacodynamic relationship of this drug in these patients.
OUTLINE: This is a multicenter study. Patients are stratified according to presence of a target lesion in a previously irradiated field (within vs outside).
Patients receive lurtotecan liposome IV over 30 minutes on days 1 and 8. Treatment repeats every 21 days in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity.
Patients are followed every 6 weeks.
PROJECTED ACCRUAL: A total of 38-72 patients (19-36 per stratum) will be accrued for this study.
