RATIONALE: Tissue plasminogen activator and captopril may help the body generate angiostatin. Angiostatin may stop the growth of cancer by stopping blood flow to the tumor.
PURPOSE: This phase I/II trial is studying the side effects and best dose of tissue plasminogen activator and captopril and to see how well they work in treating patients with progressive metastatic cancer.
|Condition or disease||Intervention/treatment||Phase|
|Unspecified Adult Solid Tumor, Protocol Specific||Biological: recombinant tissue plasminogen activator Drug: captopril||Phase 1 Phase 2|
- Determine the maximum tolerated dose and toxicity of captopril and tissue plasminogen activator (tPA) in patients with progressive metastatic cancer.
- Determine the in vivo generation of angiostatin by western analysis in patients treated with this regimen.
- Determine the antitumor effect of this regimen in these patients.
OUTLINE: This is a dose-escalation study.
Patients receive tissue plasminogen activator (tPA) IV over 6 hours and oral captopril twice daily on days 1-5. Courses repeat every 14 days for up to 1 year in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity. Patients who achieve a complete response (CR) receive 2 additional courses beyond CR.
Cohorts of 3-6 patients receive escalating doses of tPA and captopril until the maximum tolerated dose (MTD) is determined. The MTD is defined as the dose preceding that at which 2 of 3 or 2 of 6 patients experience dose-limiting toxicity.
