Oxaliplatin, Ifosfamide and Etoposide in Treating Young Patients With Recurrent or Refractory Solid Tumors or Lymphoma

This phase I trial is studying the side effects and best dose of oxaliplatin and etoposide in treating young patients with recurrent or refractory solid tumors or lymphomas. Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as oxaliplatin and etoposide, work in different ways to stop the growth of cancer cells, either by killing the cells or by stopping them from dividing. Oxaliplatin may also help etoposide work better by making cancer cells more sensitive to the drug. Giving oxaliplatin together with etoposide may kill more cancer cells.

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • MTD of the combination of oxaliplatin and etoposide assessed by Common Terminology Criteria for Adverse Events (CTCAE) version 3.0 [ Time Frame: 21 days ]
  • MTD of the addition of ifosfamide to the combination of oxaliplatin and etoposide assessed by CTCAE version 3.0 [ Time Frame: 21 days ]

Enrollment: 40
Study Start Date: November 2004
Primary Completion Date: January 2012 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: Arm I
Patients receive oxaliplatin IV over 2 hours on day 1 and etoposide IV over 1 hour on days 1-3. Courses repeat every 21 days in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity.
Drug: oxaliplatin
Given IV
Other Names:
  • 1-OHP
  • Dacotin
  • Dacplat
  • Eloxatin
  • L-OHP
Drug: etoposide
Given IV
Other Names:
  • EPEG
  • VP-16
  • VP-16-213

Detailed Description:


I. Determine the maximum tolerated dose of oxaliplatin and etoposide in pediatric patients with recurrent or refractory solid tumors or lymphoma.

II. Determine the dose-limiting toxic effects of this regimen in these patients.


I. Determine the pharmacokinetic profile of this regimen in these patients. II. Correlate the extent of oxaliplatin and etoposide exposure with toxic effects and therapeutic effects of this regimen in these patients.

III. Determine, preliminarily, the antitumor activity of this regimen in these patients.

OUTLINE: This is a dose-escalation study.

Patients receive oxaliplatin IV over 2 hours on day 1 and etoposide IV over 1 hour on days 1-3. Courses repeat every 21 days in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity.

Cohorts of 3-6 patients receive escalating doses of oxaliplatin and etoposide 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.
