The purpose of this study is to provide access to paclitaxel therapy to subjects with advanced or recurrent esophageal cancer who have completed the previous Phase 2 study (CA139-540) and who should continue on therapy with paclitaxel as assessed by the treating investigator(s). To evaluate the severity of observed adverse reactions in treated subjects for assessment of long-term safety.

Further study details as provided by Bristol-Myers Squibb:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Number of Adverse Events (AEs) Per Participant [ Time Frame: Weekly Day 1 to 4 years ]
    AE=any new unfavorable symptom, sign, or disease or worsening of a preexisting condition that may not have a causal relationship with treatment. Severity of the adverse event was judged and graded according to the National Cancer Institute Common Toxicity Criteria (NCI-CTC) version 2.0.

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Number of Participants With Complete Response to Tumor [ Time Frame: Every 7 weeks Day 1 to 4 years ]
    Tumor measured/evaluated via imaging and assessed according to the Response Evaluation Criteria in Solid Tumor (RECIST) version 1.0 wherein complete response is disappearance of all target lesions; partial response is 30% decrease in the sum of the longest diameter of target lesions; progressive disease is 20% increase in the sum of the longest diameter of target lesions, and stable disease is small changes that do not meet above criteria. The baseline assessment was done prior to the first administration of drug in the original Study CA139-540 (NCT 00344552).

Enrollment: 1
Study Start Date: March 2008
Study Completion Date: April 2012
Primary Completion Date: April 2012 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: Paclitaxel
One hour intravenous infusion on Days 1, 8, 15, 22, 29, 36, followed by 1 week of rest (6 weeks on, 1 week off). One treatment course consists of 49 days. Day 1 dose same level as last dose of original Study CA139-540 (100mg/m2, 80 mg/m2, or 60 mg/m2). Treatment to continue until disease progression or unacceptable toxicity apparent.
Drug: Paclitaxel

Sexes Eligible for Study:   All
Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   No
Subjects with advanced or recurrent esophageal cancer who have completed the previous late Phase 2 study (CA139-540) and for who continued therapy with paclitaxel would be beneficial as deemed by the investigator(s).
