Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Phase I: Maximum Tolerated Dose (MTD) of combination of TLC D-99 and Ifosfamide [ Time Frame: Definition of TDL ]
  • Phase II: Response rate (CR/PR or SD) [ Time Frame: Tumor assessment ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:

Estimated Enrollment: 36
Study Start Date: September 2006
Study Completion Date: December 2009
Primary Completion Date: December 2009 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Intervention Details:
    Drug: combination of TLC D-99 and Ifosfamide
    • TLC D-99: 40 mg/m2 Day 1 every 3 weeks;
    • Ifosfamide: 3000 mg/m2 Day 1, 2, 3 every 3 weeks
Detailed Description:

The Maximum Tolerated Dose of the combination was determined and the Phase I terminated.

Then, Phase II study started.
