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 pyroxamide in treating patients who have advanced cancer.
|Condition or disease||Intervention/treatment||Phase|
|Chronic Myeloproliferative Disorders Leukemia Lymphoma Multiple Myeloma and Plasma Cell Neoplasm Myelodysplastic Syndromes Precancerous Condition Small Intestine Cancer Unspecified Adult Solid Tumor, Protocol Specific||Drug: pyroxamide||Phase 1|
- Determine the maximum tolerated dose of pyroxamide in patients with advanced malignancies.
- Define, qualitatively and quantitatively, the dose-limiting and non-dose-limiting toxic effects of this drug in these patients.
- Describe the pharmacologic behavior of this drug in these patients.
OUTLINE: This is a dose-escalation study.
Patients receive pyroxamide IV continuously over 5-7 days. Courses repeat every 21 days in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity.
Cohorts of 3-6 patients receive escalating doses of pyroxamide 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.
Patients are followed monthly for resolution of adverse events.
PROJECTED ACCRUAL: A maximum of 32 patients will be accrued for this study.
