High-dose ICE With Amifostine
High Dose Ifosfamide, Carboplatin and Etoposide With Amifostine Chemoprotection
The purpose of the study is to evaluate the combination of amifostine and high dose chemotherapy with blood stem cell support. Amifostine is a druf developed to protect normal tissues against the toxicities of chemotherapy and radiotherapy and has reduced the side effects of chemotherapy given at conventional doses.

  • Unspecified Adult Solid Tumor, Protocol Specific
  • Biological: filgrastim
  • Drug: Amifostine
    Other Name: Ethyol®
  • Drug: Carboplatin
    Other Name: Paraplatin
  • Drug: Etoposide
    Other Names:

    Other Name: Ifex
  • Procedure: peripheral blood stem cell transplantation
Experimental: High Dose ICF with Amifostine
  • Patients undergo peripheral blood stem cell transplantation (PBSC) harvest on day -8,
  • ifosfamide IV, carboplatin IV etoposide IV (ICE) by 96 hour continuous infusion on days -7 to -4.
  • Patients receive amifostine IV twice a day on days -7 to -3.
  • PBSCs are reinfused on day 0.
  • Filgrastim (G-CSF) is administered subcutaneously beginning on day 0 at least 2 hours after infusion of the stem cells and continuing until blood cell counts recover.
  • Patients are followed monthly for the first 2 months and then for survival.
