Nordihydroguaiaretic Acid in Treating Patients With Nonmetastatic Relapsed Prostate Cancer
|ClinicalTrials.gov Identifier: NCT00313534|
Recruitment Status : Terminated (Ran out of drug)

RATIONALE: Nordihydroguaiaretic acid may stop the growth of tumor cells by blocking some of the enzymes needed for cell growth.
PURPOSE: This phase I trial is studying the side effects and best dose of nordihydroguaiaretic acid in treating patients with nonmetastatic relapsed prostate cancer.
|Condition or disease||Intervention/treatment||Phase|
|Prostate Cancer||Drug: masoprocol||Phase 1|
- Determine the maximum tolerated dose of nordihydroguaiaretic acid (NDGA) in patients with nonmetastatic, biochemically relapsed prostate cancer.
- Determine prostate-specific antigen-modulating effects of NDGA in these patients.
OUTLINE: This is a dose-escalation study.
Patients receive oral nordihydroguaiaretic acid (NDGA) twice daily on days 1-28. Treatment repeats every 28 days in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity.
Cohorts of 3-6 patients receive escalating doses of NDGA 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.
PROJECTED ACCRUAL: A total of 30 patients will be accrued for this study.
|Study Type :||Interventional (Clinical Trial)|
