RATIONALE: Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as docetaxel and temozolomide, work in different ways to stop the growth of tumor cells, either by killing the cells or by stopping them from dividing. Giving more than one drug (combination chemotherapy) may kill more tumor cells.
PURPOSE: This phase I trial is studying the side effects and best dose of docetaxel and temozolomide in treating patients with metastatic cancer.
|Condition or disease||Intervention/treatment||Phase|
|Unspecified Adult Solid Tumor, Protocol Specific||Drug: docetaxel Drug: temozolomide||Phase 1|
- Determine the toxicity profile, dose-limiting toxicity, and maximum tolerated dose of docetaxel and temozolomide (TMZ) in patients with metastatic cancer.
- Determine the activity of docetaxel and TMZ in these patients.
OUTLINE: This is a dose-escalation study.
Patients receive docetaxel IV over 1 hour on days 1, 8, and 15 and oral temozolomide once daily on days 1-21. Treatment repeats every 28 days for up to 1 year in the absence of unacceptable toxicity or disease progression.
Cohorts of 3-6 patients receive escalating doses of docetaxel and temozolomide until the maximum tolerated dose (MTD) is determined. The MTD is defined as the dose preceding that at which at least 2 of 3 or 2 of 6 patients experience dose-limiting toxicity. A total of 6 patients receive treatment at the MTD.
After completion of study treatment, patients are followed periodically.
PROJECTED ACCRUAL: A total of 24 patients will be accrued for this study.
