Tipifarnib in Treating Patients With Recurrent Bladder Cancer
RATIONALE: Tipifarnib may stop the growth of tumor cells by blocking the enzymes necessary for tumor cell growth.
PURPOSE: Phase II trial to study the effectiveness of tipifarnib in treating patients who have recurrent bladder cancer.
|Study Design:||Masking: None (Open Label)
Primary Purpose: Treatment
|Official Title:||A Phase II Study of R115777 (Zarnestra) in Superficial Transitional Cell Carcinoma of Bladder|
- 1-year recurrence-free survival
- Recurrence rate at 3, 6, 9, and 12 months
- Progression rate at 3, 6, 9, and 12 months
- Survival rate
- Time to treatment failure
- Molecular changes in the host tissue
|Study Start Date:||November 2002|
|Primary Completion Date:||March 2006 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)|
- Determine the 1-year recurrence-free survival rate of patients with stage 0 or I recurrent transitional cell carcinoma of the bladder treated with tipifarnib.
OUTLINE: This is a multicenter study.
Patients receive oral tipifarnib twice daily on days 1-21. Treatment repeats every 28 days for up to 12 courses in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity.
Patients are followed every 3 months.
PROJECTED ACCRUAL: A total of 37 patients will be accrued for this study within 18 months.
