  • MTD defined as the dose at which fewer than 20% of patients experience DLT assessed using CTC version 2.0 [ Time Frame: 3 weeks ]
  • 20S proteasome inhibition [ Time Frame: Up to 2 weeks ]
    The 95% confidence interval for the percent of patients who exhibit inhibition at a recommended dose level determined according to the table above is 61%-100%, if six patients are evaluated or 55%-100% if five patients are evaluated.
  • Progression free survival [ Time Frame: Up to 24 months ]

Bortezomib in Treating Children With Advanced Solid Tumors
A Phase I Study Of PS-341 In Pediatric Patients With Refractory Solid Tumors
Drugs used in chemotherapy use different ways to stop tumor cells from dividing so they stop growing or die. Phase I trial to study the effectiveness of bortezomib in treating children who have advanced solid tumors that have not responded to previous treatment.


I. Determine the maximum tolerated dose of bortezomib in pediatric patients with refractory solid tumors.

II. Determine the dose-limiting toxicity and other toxic effects of this regimen in these patients.

III. Preliminarily determine the antitumor activity of this regimen in these patients.

OUTLINE: This is a dose-escalation study.

Patients receive bortezomib IV on days 1, 4, 8, and 11. Courses repeat every 21 days in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity.

Cohorts of 3-6 patients receive escalating doses of bortezomib until the maximum tolerated dose (MTD) is determined. The MTD is defined as the dose preceding that at which 2 of 3 or 2 of 6 patients experience dose-limiting toxicity. If dose-limiting toxicity in the form of myelosuppression occurs in stratum I, dose escalation continues with patients meeting the qualifications for stratum II.

PROJECTED ACCRUAL: Approximately 24-36 patients will be accrued for this study.
