RATIONALE: Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as pemetrexed disodium, work in different ways to stop tumor cells from dividing so they stop growing or die.
PURPOSE: This phase II trial is studying how well pemetrexed disodium works in treating patients with recurrent cancer of the cervix.
|Condition or disease||Intervention/treatment||Phase|
|Cervical Cancer||Drug: pemetrexed disodium||Phase 2|
- Determine the antitumor activity of pemetrexed disodium in patients with recurrent carcinoma of the cervix that failed higher priority treatment protocols.
- Determine the nature and degree of toxicity of this drug in these patients.
OUTLINE: This is a multicenter study.
Patients receive pemetrexed disodium IV over 10 minutes on day 1. Courses repeat every 21 days in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity.
Beginning 7 days before and continuing until 3 weeks after the last dose of pemetrexed disodium, patients also receive oral folic acid daily and cyanocobalamin (vitamin B_12) intramuscularly every 9 weeks.
Patients are followed every 3 months for 2 years and then every 6 months for 3 years.
PROJECTED ACCRUAL: Approximately 22-60 patients will be accrued for this study within 1-2 years.
