2014-07-24 14:33:04 | BioPortfolio

Summary

RATIONALE: Forodesine (BCX-1777) may stop the growth of cancer cells by blocking the enzymes necessary for their growth.

PURPOSE: Phase I trial to study the effectiveness of BCX-1777 in treating patients who have refractory stage IIA, stage IIB, stage III, stage IVA, or stage IVB cutaneous T-cell lymphoma.

Description

OBJECTIVES:

- Determine the safety and efficacy of forodesine (BCX-1777) in patients with refractory stage IIA-IVB cutaneous T-cell lymphoma.

- Determine the pharmacokinetics and pharmacodynamics of this drug in these patients.

OUTLINE: This is an open-label, multicenter study.

Patients receive oral forodesine (BCX-1777) once daily on days 1-28. Courses may be repeated in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity.

Patients are followed periodically.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A nitrogen mustard compound that functions as an ALKYLATING ANTINEOPLASTIC AGENT and is used in the treatment of CHRONIC LYMPHOCYTIC LEUKEMIA and NON-HODGKIN'S 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.

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.

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.
