Descriptive Information
Brief Title  ICMJE Combination Chemotherapy in Treating Patients With Advanced Cancer
Official Title  ICMJE A Phase I Study of Low Dose Continuous Infusion Topotecan in Combination With 5-Fluorouracil and Leucovorin for Advanced Malignancies
Brief Summary

RATIONALE: Drugs used in chemotherapy use different ways to stop tumor cells from dividing so they stop growing or die. Combining more than one drug may kill more tumor cells.

PURPOSE: Phase I trial to study the effectiveness of combining topotecan, fluorouracil, and leucovorin in treating patients who have advanced cancer.

Detailed Description

OBJECTIVES: I. Evaluate the maximum tolerated dose (MTD) of continuous infusion topotecan in combination with fluorouracil for patients with advanced malignancy and establish a recommended phase II dose based on the MTD. II. Evaluate the dose limiting toxicity of this combination in these patients. II. Obtain pharmacokinetic and pharmacodynamic data for topoisomerase-1 depletion in patients receiving this treatment. IV. Identify any objective tumor responses arising from this treatment in these patients.

OUTLINE: This is a dose-escalation study of topotecan in combination with fluorouracil. Patients receive topotecan as a 24-hour continuous infusion on days 1-14 in combination with fluorouracil IV and leucovorin calcium IV on days 1-5; course repeats every 4 weeks. Treatment continues in the absence of unacceptable toxicity or disease progression. In the absence of dose limiting toxicity (DLT) in the first cohort of 3 patients treated, subsequent cohorts each receive escalating doses on the same schedule. If DLT is observed in 2 of 3 patients or 2 of 6 patients at a given dose level, then dose escalation ceases and the next lower dose is declared the maximum tolerated dose.

PROJECTED ACCRUAL: Approximately 6-30 patients will be accrued for this study.
