RATIONALE: CI-1040 may stop the growth of tumors by blocking the enzymes necessary for cancer cell growth and by stopping blood flow to the tumor.

PURPOSE: Phase II trial to study the effectiveness of CI-1040 in treating patients who have metastatic or unresectable breast, colon, pancreatic, or non-small cell lung cancer.

Study Start Date: February 2002
Study Completion Date: November 2003
Primary Completion Date: November 2003 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Detailed Description:


  • Determine the antitumor activity of CI-1040 in patients with non-small cell lung, breast, colon, or pancreatic cancer.
  • Determine the safety profile of this drug in these patients.
  • Assess quality of life (overall and for each tumor type) of patients treated with this drug.
  • Determine the relationship between study drug concentration and antitumor response in these patients and target suppression and safety of this drug.
  • Correlate target suppression (pERK) with antitumor effects of this drug in these patients.
  • Correlate the mRNA expression profile of the tumors with antitumor effects of this drug in these patients.

OUTLINE: This is a multicenter study. Patients are stratified according to tumor type (non-small cell lung vs breast vs colon vs pancreas).

Patients receive oral CI-1040 twice daily on days 1-21. Courses repeat every 28 days in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity.

Quality of life is assessed at baseline and then every 28 days during the first 6 months of study therapy.

Patients are followed every 2 months.

PROJECTED ACCRUAL: A total of 52-172 patients (13-43 per stratum) will be accrued for this study.
