Brief Summary:
This is a single center in patient/outpatient, uncontrolled dose escalating study in cancer patients to evaluate the safety, tolerability and pharmacokinetic (PK) profiles of body surface area adjusted doses of liposomal curcumin administered intravenously as an 8 hour infusion once weekly for 8 weeks.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Patients With Advanced Cancer Who Have Failed Standard of Care Therapy Drug: Liposomeal curcumin Phase 1 Phase 2

Detailed Description:
Patients with solid tumors who either failed to initially respond to approved chemotherapy or who have progressive solid tumor cancers following initial response to approved chemotherapy, are eligible for treatment in this phase 1b trial of ascending doses of intravenous liposomal curcumin following a four week period without previous chemotherapy.The escalating dose range of liposomal curcumin will be from 100mg/M2 to 300 mg/M2 in cohorts of three to 6 patients, and administered over eight hours by a syringe pump weekly for eight weeks. Safety and tolerability will be determined by drug related adverse symptoms(if any), hematologic and serologic signs at each clinic visit and by electronic communication between visits. Pharmacokinetic profiles following infusion of drug will be compared with any adverse changes, and any beneficial subjective or objective responses. When the maximum tolerated dose level is reached in any cohort , another three patients will be accrued at a preceding dose level to assure tolerability in subsequent phase 2 clinical trials.

Drug Information available for: Curcumin

Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: Liposomeal curcumin ascending dose phase 1b Drug: Liposomeal curcumin



Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Safety [ Time Frame: Eight(8) weeks ]
    The primary objectives of this study are to determine in cancer patients the safety profile of increasing doses of intravenous liposomal curcumin until the maximum tolerated dose (MTD) is determined. This will be done by assessing clinical chemistry, hematology, EKGs and urine analyses, signs and physical symptoms of adverse events.

  2. Determine the maximum tolerated dose of lipocurc [ Time Frame: in the cohort after eight ( 8) weeks of treatment ]
    The primary objectives of this study are to determine in cancer patients the safety profile of increasing doses of intravenous liposomal curcumin until the maximum tolerated dose (MTD) is determined. This will be done by assessing clinical chemistry, hematology, EKGs and urine analyses, signs and physical symptoms of adverse events.

  3. Maximum tolerated dose [ Time Frame: eight(8) weeks ]
    The primary objectives of this study are to determine in cancer patients the safety profile of increasing doses of intravenous liposomal curcumin until the maximum tolerated dose (MTD) is determined. This will be done by assessing clinical chemistry, hematology, EKGs and urine analyses, signs and physical symptoms of adverse events.

  4. Maximum tolerated dose defined by < Grade 1 hematologic toxicity, [ Time Frame: Outcome measured weekly x 8 weeks ]

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Response by Recist criteria [ Time Frame: Eight(8) weeks ]
    The secondary objectives are to determine the PK profiles of increasing doses, up to the MTD of liposomal curcumin, and to record any evidence of beneficial effect associated with the treatment.

  2. Tumor response by resist criteria [ Time Frame: 8 weeks ]
    The secondary objectives are to determine the PK profiles of increasing doses, up to the MTD of liposomal curcumin, and to record any evidence of beneficial effect associated with the treatment.

  3. Tumor response [ Time Frame: Eight weeks ]
    The secondary objectives are to determine the PK profiles of increasing doses, up to the MTD of liposomal curcumin, and to record any evidence of beneficial effect associated with the treatment.

  4. Benefit [ Time Frame: Eight(8) weeks ]
    The secondary objectives are to determine the PK profiles of increasing doses, up to the MTD of liposomal curcumin, and to record any evidence of related beneficial effect associated with the treatment.

  5. Objective change in measurable tumor size by Resist criteria [ Time Frame: once after 8 weeky treatments ]

Other Outcome Measures:
  1. Serologic changes in hepatic, renal, cardiac parameters [ Time Frame: weekly x 8 weeks ]
