Primary Purpose: Treatment
|Official Title:||A Phase II Study of Gemcitabine, Paclitaxel, and Doxorubicin, With Pegfilgrastim for the Treatment of Patients With Metastatic Transitional Cell Carcinoma and Renal Insufficiency|
- Overall response rate (complete and partial response) [ Time Frame: Up to 12 weeks ]Overall response defined as participants with Complete or Partial Response using Response Evaluation Criteria in Solid Tumors (RECIST): Complete Response: Disappearance of all target lesions. Partial Response: At least 30% decrease in sum of longest diameter of target lesions, reference baseline sum longest diameter. Progressive Disease: At least a 20% increase in sum of longest diameter of target lesions, reference smallest sum longest diameter recorded since treatment started or appearance of 1 or > new lesions. Stable Disease: Neither sufficient shrinkage to qualify for partial response nor sufficient increase to qualify for progressive disease, reference smallest sum longest diameter since treatment started.
- Time to progression [ Time Frame: Up to 3 years ]Time measured in months from the date of protocol registration to disease progression, assessed up to 3 years
- Survival duration [ Time Frame: 3 years ]Time measured from the date of protocol registration to death, assessed up to 3 years
- Frequency of neutropenic fever or treatment delay because of neutropenia [ Time Frame: Up to 3 years ]Safety and efficacy of pegfilgrastim administered on the day of chemotherapy measured by the frequency of neutropenic fever or treatment delay because of neutropenia

Other Names:Drug: Paclitaxel
135 mg/m^2 IV over 1 hour
Other Names:Drug: Doxorubicin hydrochloride
Doxorubicin 40 mg/m^2 IV over 20 minutes
Other Names:Drug: Pegfilgrastim
Subcutaneously injection on day 1.
I. Assess the efficacy of gemcitabine hydrochloride, paclitaxel, doxorubicin hydrochloride, and pegfilgrastim, in terms of response rate, in patients with metastatic or unresectable transitional cell carcinoma of the bladder or urinary tract and renal insufficiency.
I. Assess the safety and tolerability of this regimen in these patients. II. Determine the median time to progression in patients treated with this regimen.
III. Determine the median survival duration in patients treated with this regimen.
IV. Assess the safety and efficacy of pegfilgrastim in these patients.
OUTLINE: This is a multicenter study.
Patients receive doxorubicin hydrochloride intravenous (IV) over 20 minutes, paclitaxel IV over 60 minutes, gemcitabine hydrochloride IV over 90 minutes, and pegfilgrastim subcutaneously on day 1. Treatment repeats every 14 days for up to 9 courses in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity.
After completion of study treatment, patients are followed every 3 months for 3 years.
