Hydroxychloroquine in Treating Patients With Solid Tumors Undergoing Radiation Therapy for Bone Metastases
|ClinicalTrials.gov Identifier: NCT01417403|
Recruitment Status : Terminated (Recently published data that has shown HCQ to be safe when combined with chemo and or radiation at even higher doses than what is used in this study.)

|Condition or disease||Intervention/treatment||Phase|
|Bone Metastases Unspecified Adult Solid Tumor, Protocol Specific||Drug: hydroxychloroquine Radiation: radiation therapy||Phase 1|
I. To determine the maximum tolerated dose (MTD) of hydroxychloroquine that can safely be administered to cancer patients in association with radiation prior to developing this approach for disease treatment.
OUTLINE: This is a dose escalation study.
Beginning 3 days before the initiation of radiotherapy, patients receive hydroxychloroquine orally (PO) once daily (QD) or twice daily (BID). Treatment continues until completion of radiotherapy.
After completion of study treatment, patients are followed up at 4 weeks.
