Brief Summary:
This phase I trial is studying the side effects and best dose of SJG-136 in treating patients with advanced solid tumors. Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as SJG-136, work in different ways to stop the growth of tumor cells, either by killing the cells or by stopping them from dividing.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Unspecified Adult Solid Tumor, Protocol Specific Drug: SJG-136 Phase 1

Detailed Description:


I. To determine the toxicities, pharmacokinetic profile and the recommended phase 2 dose of SJG-136 in patients with an advanced solid tumor.


I. To determine preliminary efficacy data and evaluation of correlative markers of DNA damage and apoptosis in peripheral blood lymphocytes.

OUTLINE: This is an open-label, dose-escalation study.

Patients receive SJG-136 intravenously (IV) over 20 minutes on days 1, 8, and 15. Courses repeat every 28 days in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity. Cohorts of 3-6 patients receive escalating doses of SJG-136 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. At least 6 patients are treated at the MTD.

Study Type : Interventional  (Clinical Trial)
Estimated Enrollment : 36 participants
Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment
Masking: None (Open Label)
Primary Purpose: Treatment
Official Title: A Phase I Study With SJG-136 (NSC #694501) in Patients With an Advanced Solid Tumor
Study Start Date : November 2004
Primary Completion Date : February 2007

Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: Treatment (SJG-136)
Patients receive SJG-136 IV over 20 minutes on days 1, 8, and 15. Courses repeat every 28 days in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity.
Drug: SJG-136
Given IV

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Recommended phase 2 dose of SJG-136 [ Time Frame: Day 28 ]
    Defined as when ≤1 out of 6 patients achieve dose-limiting toxicity (DLT) at highest dose level below the maximally administered dose.
