Stage IV Colorectal CA ALIMTA
Phase I: The primary objective of the Phase 1 portion of this study is to determine the Maximum tolerated dose and the recommended Phase 2 dose of ALIMTA plus oxaliplatin when given with folate and vitamin B-12 supplementation in the treatment of patients with unresectable, locally advanced or metastatic colorectal cancer. The Phase I component of the study will be activated for enrollment of Mayo Clinic patients only.
Phase II: The primary objective of the Phase 2 portion of this study is to determine the tumor response rates to ALIMTA plus oxaliplatin and oxaliplatin plus 5-fluorouracil and leucovorin in patients with locally advanced unresectable or Stage IV colorectal cancer that have not received prior chemotherapy for advanced disease. Patients will be randomly assigned to receive either ALIMTA plus oxaliplatin (Arm A) or Oxaliplatin plus 5-Fluorouracil and Leucovorin (Arm B). The Phase II component of the study will be activated for enrollment of patients via the Mayo Clinic Cancer Research Consortium mechanism. A comparison will be made of the side effects between regimens.
Locally Advanced Unresectable or Stage IV Colorectal Cancer
Drug: ALIMTA plus Oxaliplatin versus Oxaliplatin plus 5-Fluorouracil and Leucovorin (FOLFOX 4 Regimen)
|Study Design:||Allocation: Non-Randomized
Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment
Masking: Open Label
Primary Purpose: Treatment
|Official Title:||A Phase I Dose-Finding Study and a Randomized Phase II Study of ALIMTA Plus Oxaliplatin Versus Oxaliplatin Plus 5-Fluorouracil and Leucovorin (FOLFOX 4 Regimen) in the First-Line Treatment of Patients With Locally Advanced Unresectable or Stage IV Colorectal Cancer|
- Proportion of successes will be estimated by the number of successes divided by the total number of evaluable patients. Confidence intervals for the true success proportion will be calculated using the exact binomial distribution.
