RATIONALE: Temsirolimus may stop the growth of tumor cells by blocking some of the enzymes needed for cell growth. Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as vinorelbine ditartrate, work in different ways to stop the growth of tumor cells, either by killing the cells or by stopping them from dividing. Giving temsirolimus together with vinorelbine ditartrate may kill more tumor cells.

PURPOSE: This phase I trial is studying the side effects and best dose of giving temsirolimus and vinorelbine ditartrate together in treating patients with unresectable or metastatic solid tumors.

  • Projected life expectancy of at least 3 months
  • Provision of informed consent prior to any study-related procedures
  • Negative pregnancy test for women of childbearing potential
  • Female patients must not be pregnant due to the potential mutagenicity and teratogenicity of this treatment; a pregnancy test must be administered 7 days prior to administration of therapy to women of childbearing potential; patients must agree to use some form of contraception while on this study at initiation and for the duration of participation in the study; sexually active males must also use a reliable and appropriate method of contraception; post-menopausal women must be amenorrheic for at least 12 months to be considered of nonchildbearing potential
