RATIONALE: Opioid growth factor may stop the growth of pancreatic cancer by blocking blood flow to the tumor.
PURPOSE: This phase II trial is studying how well opioid growth factor works in treating patients with advanced pancreatic cancer that cannot be removed by surgery.
|Condition or disease||Intervention/treatment||Phase|
|Pancreatic Cancer||Biological: opioid growth factor Biological: metenkephalin, OGF-opioid growth factor||Phase 2|
- Determine the growth inhibitory effects of opioid growth factor ([Met^5]-enkephalin) in patients with advanced unresectable pancreatic cancer.
- Determine the pharmacokinetics of this drug in these patients.
- Determine the quality of life of patients treated with this drug.
- Determine the pain control, depression, and nutritional status of patients treated with this drug.
OUTLINE: This is an open-label study.
Patients receive opioid growth factor ([Met^5]-enkephalin) IV over 45 minutes once weekly. Treatment continues in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity.
Quality of life is assessed at baseline, every 4 weeks during study treatment, and at the completion of study treatment.
Patients are followed weekly for survival.
PROJECTED ACCRUAL: A total of 50 patients will be accrued for this study.
