RATIONALE: Perifosine 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 perifosine in treating patients who have locally advanced, unresectable, or metastatic pancreatic cancer.
|Condition or disease||Intervention/treatment||Phase|
|Pancreatic Cancer||Drug: perifosine||Phase 2|
- Determine the activity of perifosine, in terms of objective response, in patients with locally advanced, unresectable, or metastatic pancreatic cancer.
- Determine the response duration, progression-free survival, and overall survival of patients treated with this drug.
- Determine the toxicity of this drug in these patients.
OUTLINE: This is a multicenter study.
Patients receive oral perifosine every 6 hours for a total of 6 doses and then once daily in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity.
Patients are followed every 3 months for 3 years.
PROJECTED ACCRUAL: A total of 35-84 patients will be accrued for this study within 21 months.
