|Condition or disease||Intervention/treatment||Phase|
|Central Nervous System Neoplasms Neoplasm Metastasis||Drug: Temozolomide||Phase 1|
High dose chemotherapy and autologous stem cell transplant is an accepted treatment alternative for patients with brain tumors. Temozolomide has been approved for use by the United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for certain tumors of the brain. The doses of temozolomide given in this study will be higher than approved by the FDA and higher than those given in any prior studies.
Over 25 subjects will be enrolled on this study over a period of 5 years. This study will only be available at Tufts Medical Center.
|Study Type :||Interventional (Clinical Trial)|
|Actual Enrollment :||2 participants|
|Intervention Model:||Single Group Assignment|
|Masking:||None (Open Label)|
|Official Title:||Phase I Dose Escalation Study of Temozolomide With Autologous Stem Cell Rescue for Patients With Relapsed/Refractory CNS Malignancy Including Isolated Metastatic Disease|
|Study Start Date :||April 2004|
|Primary Completion Date :||April 2012|

Before taking part in this study, subjects will have stem cells collected in a procedure called apheresis. Once on this study, subjects will be admitted to the hospital and receive daily doses of temozolomide by mouth for 5 days. Stem cells will be given back to subjects who will remain in the hospital until blood counts have recovered. Doses of temozolomide will range from 350 mg to 1500 mg/m(squared) daily for 5 days (total dose 1750 to 7500 mg/m(squared).
