A Study of Trimetrexate Plus Leucovorin in Children With Pneumocystis Carinii Pneumonia
A Study of Neutrexin (Trimetrexate Glucuronate) With Leucovorin Protection for Pediatric Patients (Ages 2-12) With Pneumocystis Carinii Pneumonia
To evaluate the safety and efficacy of trimetrexate glucuronate with leucovorin protection in pediatric patients with Pneumocystis carinii pneumonia (PCP) who are refractory to or have demonstrated severe or life-threatening toxicities to standard therapies (e.g., TMP/SMX or parenteral pentamidine).
Patients receive intravenous infusions of trimetrexate glucuronate and leucovorin for 21 days. Leucovorin is continued for 3 additional days after discontinuation of trimetrexate glucuronate. Patients are followed for 1 month.
