Zoledronate and BMS-275291 in Treating Patients With Prostate Cancer

This study has been completed.
Information provided by (Responsible Party):
National Cancer Institute (NCI) Identifier:
First received: June 6, 2002
Last updated: June 4, 2013
Last verified: June 2013
Phase II trial to study the effectiveness of combining zoledronate with BMS-275291 in treating patients who have prostate cancer that has not responded to previous hormone therapy. Zoledronate may prevent bone loss and stop the growth of tumor cells in bone. BMS-275291 may stop the growth of tumor cells by blocking the enzymes necessary for cancer cell growth. Combining zoledronate with BMS-275291 may kill more tumor cells.

Condition Intervention Phase
Adenocarcinoma of the Prostate

Drug: zoledronic acid
Other: laboratory biomarker analysis

Study Design: Allocation: Randomized
Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment
Masking: Open Label

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Confirmed response (PSA decline of greater than 50% confirmed at least four weeks apart) [ Time Frame: Up to 2 years ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Overall survival time [ Time Frame: From registration to death due to any cause, assessed for up to 2 years ]
    The distribution of survival time will be estimated using the method of Kaplan-Meier.

  • Time to disease progression [ Time Frame: From registration to documentation of disease progression, assessed up to 2 years ]
    The distribution of time to progression will be estimated using the method of Kaplan-Meier.

  • Duration of PSA response or duration of PSA control [ Time Frame: Up to 2 years ]
    The distribution of this response duration will be estimated using the method of Kaplan-Meier.

  • Incidence of toxicity as per NCI CTCAE version 2.0 [ Time Frame: Up to 2 years ]
    The maximum grade for each type of toxicity will be recorded for each patient, and frequency tables will be reviewed to determine toxicity patterns.

Detailed Description:


I. To evaluate the confirmed response rate of hormone refractory prostate cancer patients treated with Zometa with BMS-275291.


I. To evaluate the toxicity profile associated with this treatment in this patient population.

II. To evaluate the overall and progression-free survival associated with this treatment regimen.

III. To explore changes markers for bone turnover, fPYR, fDPYR, and serum samples for cross-linked N-telopeptides from baseline.

IV. To assess changes in bone tumor metabolism after treatment using PET scans. V. To assess changes in MMP-1, MMP-9, VEGF and bFGF from baseline after treatment.

OUTLINE: This is an open-label, multicenter study. Patients are stratified according to prior chemotherapy (yes vs no) and participating center.

ARM I: Patients receive zoledronate IV over at least 15 minutes on day 1 and oral BMS-275291 daily on days 1-28.

ARM II (CLOSED TO ACCRUAL AS OF 10/10/2003): Patients receive zoledronate as in Arm I.

In both arms, courses repeat every 28 days in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity.

Patients are followed every 3 months until disease progression and then every 6 months for up to 2 years.


Ages Eligible for Study:   18 Years and older   (Adult, Senior)
