Phase II Trial of Doxorubicin and Bortezomib in Patients With Incurable Adenoid Cystic Carcinoma of the Head and Neck
This is a Phase II trial non-randomized study to evaluate the objective response rate and stable disease rate (primary endpoints), progression-free survival, overall survival and toxicities with the combination of doxorubicin and bortezomib in patients with incurable head and neck adenoid cystic carcinoma. Also, we plan to collect tumor tissue from previous diagnostic procedures and baseline blood specimens for future correlative studies.
Patients will be treated with bortezomib 1.3 mg/m2, intravenously on days 1, 4, 8 and 11, and doxorubicin 20 mg/m2, intravenously on days 1 and 8, every 21 days. Zinecard will be added at the 8th cycle and all subsequent cycles with doxorubicin. After the completion of 14 cycles, if there is no progression, bortezomib once a week at a dose of 1.6 mg/m2 on days 1,8,15, every 28 days, will be administered alone. Treatment will continue unless disease progression or intolerable toxicity emerges (see section 5 for detailed treatment plan and dose modifications).

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions
Carcinoma, Adenoid Cystic
Carcinoma characterized by bands or cylinders of hyalinized or mucinous stroma separating or surrounded by nests or cords of small epithelial cells. When the cylinders occur within masses of epithelial cells, they give the tissue a perforated, sievelike, or cribriform appearance. Such tumors occur in the mammary glands, the mucous glands of the upper and lower respiratory tract, and the salivary glands. They are malignant but slow-growing, and tend to spread locally via the nerves. (Dorland, 27th ed)
A cystic growth originating from lymphatic tissue. It is usually found in the neck, axilla, or groin.
Carcinoma 256, Walker
A transplantable carcinoma of the rat that originally appeared spontaneously in the mammary gland of a pregnant albino rat, and which now resembles a carcinoma in young transplants and a sarcoma in older transplants. (Stedman, 25th ed)
An adenocarcinoma characterized by the presence of cells resembling the glandular cells of the ENDOMETRIUM. It is a common histological type of ovarian CARCINOMA and ENDOMETRIAL CARCINOMA. There is a high frequency of co-occurrence of this form of adenocarcinoma in both tissues.
Carcinoma, Non-small-cell Lung
A heterogeneous aggregate of at least three distinct histological types of lung cancer, including SQUAMOUS CELL CARCINOMA; ADENOCARCINOMA; and LARGE CELL CARCINOMA. They are dealt with collectively because of their shared treatment strategy.
- Although mTOR is clearly an attractive therapeutic target in tumor, no clinical study on mTOR inhibition by RAD001 has been systematically conducted in adenoid cystic carcinom...
RATIONALE: Bortezomib may stop the growth of tumor cells by blocking the enzymes necessary for their growth. Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as doxorubicin, work in different ways to stop...
This is a phase II study to evaluate the effectiveness of study drug sunitinib malate in patients with recurrent and/or metastatic adenoid cystic carcinomas of the salivary gland. There cu...
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the FDA-approved drug nelfinavir (NFV) as an oncologic agent for adenoid cystic cancers of the head and neck. Specifically, subjects will be asked...
This is a Phase II study of imatinib (Glivec) administered as a daily oral treatment in patients with recurrent/metastatic adenoid cystic carcinoma of the head and neck overexpressing KIT.
ABSTRACT: Adenoid cystic carcinoma of the peripheral lung is a rare entity. We recently encountered a patient with adenoid cystic carcinoma. A 75-year-old woman showed a nodular lesion with 10mm in di...
Malignant tumors of minor salivary glands are uncommon, representing only 2-4% of all head and neck malignancies. In the larynx, minor salivary gland tumors rarely occur and constitute less than 1% of...
Autophagy is the endogenous cellular pathway that facilitates cellular survival by maintaining energy homeostasis and macromolecular synthesis during cellular stress and nutrient deprivation. Endoplas...
Adenoid cystic carcinoma of the breast is a rare subtype of breast cancer with basal-like features. Published studies on breast adenoid cystic carcinoma are limited, resulting in relatively scarce inf...
Objectives: To evaluate the epidemiological aspects of adenoid cystic carcinoma (ACC) and to evaluate the different therapeutic possibilities as well as the percentage of survival. Study Design: A ret...
