S0355 Ixabepilone in Treating Patients With Advanced Solid Tumors or Lymphomas and Liver Dysfunction
RATIONALE: Drugs used in chemotherapy work in different ways to stop tumor cells from dividing so they stop growing or die.
PURPOSE: This phase I trial is studying the side effects and best dose of ixabepilone in treating patients with advanced solid tumors or lymphomas and liver dysfunction.
- Determine the levels of hepatic impairment at which dose modifications of ixabepilone are required in patients with advanced solid tumors or lymphomas and varying levels of liver dysfunction.
- Determine the effect of hepatic dysfunction on the plasma pharmacokinetics of this drug in these patients.
- Determine the toxic effects of this drug at varying levels of hepatic dysfunction in these patients.
OUTLINE: This is a dose-escalation, multicenter study. Patients are stratified according to liver function (normal vs mild dysfunction vs moderate dysfunction vs severe dysfunction).
Patients receive ixabepilone IV over 3 hours on day 1. Courses repeat every 3 weeks in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity.
Cohorts of 3-6 patients receive escalating doses of ixabepilone until the maximum tolerated dose (MTD) is determined. The MTD is defined as the dose preceding that at which at least 2 of 3 or 2 of 6 patients experience dose-limiting toxicity. Once the MTD is determined, at least 6 but no more than 12 patients are treated at the recommended phase II dose.
Patients are followed for 30 days.
PROJECTED ACCRUAL: A total of 12-84 patients (6-12 for stratum 1; 2-18 for stratum 2; 2-24 for stratum 3; and 2-30 for stratum 4) will be accrued for this study within 12 months.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions
B-cell lymphoid tumors that occur in association with AIDS. Patients often present with an advanced stage of disease and highly malignant subtypes including BURKITT LYMPHOMA; IMMUNOBLASTIC LARGE-CELL LYMPHOMA; PRIMARY EFFUSION LYMPHOMA; and DIFFUSE, LARGE B-CELL, LYMPHOMA. The tumors are often disseminated in unusual extranodal sites and chromosomal abnormalities are frequently present. It is likely that polyclonal B-cell lymphoproliferation in AIDS is a complex result of EBV infection, HIV antigenic stimulation, and T-cell-dependent HIV activation.
Precursor T-cell Lymphoblastic Leukemia-lymphoma
A leukemia/lymphoma found predominately in children and young adults and characterized LYMPHADENOPATHY and THYMUS GLAND involvement. It most frequently presents as a lymphoma, but a leukemic progression in the bone marrow is common.
A form of undifferentiated malignant LYMPHOMA usually found in central Africa, but also reported in other parts of the world. It is commonly manifested as a large osteolytic lesion in the jaw or as an abdominal mass. B-cell antigens are expressed on the immature cells that make up the tumor in virtually all cases of Burkitt lymphoma. The Epstein-Barr virus (HERPESVIRUS 4, HUMAN) has been isolated from Burkitt lymphoma cases in Africa and it is implicated as the causative agent in these cases; however, most non-African cases are EBV-negative.
Two or more distinct types of malignant lymphoid tumors occurring within a single organ or tissue at the same time. It may contain different types of non-Hodgkin lymphoma cells or both Hodgkin and non-Hodgkin lymphoma cells.
Lymphoma, Large-cell, Anaplastic
A systemic, large-cell, non-Hodgkin, malignant lymphoma characterized by cells with pleomorphic appearance and expressing the CD30 ANTIGEN. These so-called "hallmark" cells have lobulated and indented nuclei. This lymphoma is often mistaken for metastatic carcinoma and MALIGNANT HISTIOCYTOSIS.
