R115777 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.
PURPOSE: Phase I trial to study the effectiveness of R115777 in treating patients who have advanced solid tumors.
|Unspecified Adult Solid Tumor, Protocol Specific||Drug: tipifarnib||Phase 1|
|Study Design:||Primary Purpose: Treatment|
|Official Title:||Phase I Trial of R115777 (NSA 702818) in Advanced Malignant Solid Tumors|
|Study Start Date:||August 2001|
|Study Completion Date:||July 2008|
|Primary Completion Date:||July 2008 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)|
- Determine the maximum tolerated dose of R115777 in patients with advanced malignant solid tumors.
- Assess the toxicity of this drug in these patients.
- Determine, preliminarily, the efficacy of this drug in these patients.
- Determine the potential predictors of response in patients treated with drug.
OUTLINE: This is a multicenter, dose-escalation study.
Patients receive oral R115777 twice daily on weeks 1 and 3. Treatment repeats every 28 days in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity.
Cohorts of 3-6 patients receive escalating doses of R115777 until the maximum tolerated dose (MTD) is determined. The MTD is defined as the dose preceding that at which at least 2 of 3 or 2 of 6 patients experience dose-limiting toxicity.
PROJECTED ACCRUAL: A minimum of 20 patients will be accrued for this study within 12 months.
