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 DHA-paclitaxel in treating patients who have metastatic prostate cancer that has not responded to hormone therapy.
|Condition or disease||Intervention/treatment||Phase|
|Prostate Cancer||Drug: DHA-paclitaxel||Phase 2|
- Determine the objective tumor response rate or prostate-specific antigen response, duration of response, and time to disease progression in patients with metastatic hormone-refractory prostate cancer treated with DHA-paclitaxel.
- Determine the overall survival of patients treated with this drug.
- Determine the toxicity profile of this drug in these patients.
- Assess the quality of life of patients treated with this drug.
OUTLINE: This is a multicenter study.
Patients receive DHA-paclitaxel IV over 2 hours on day 1. Treatment repeats every 21 days in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity.
Quality of life is assessed at baseline, every 2 courses, and off study.
Patients are followed every 3 months.
PROJECTED ACCRUAL: A total of 18-50 patients will be accrued for this study.
