RATIONALE: GTI-2040 may stop the growth of cancer cells by blocking the enzymes necessary for their growth. It may also increase the effectiveness of docetaxel by making the tumor cells more sensitive to the drug. Combining GTI-2040 with docetaxel may kill more tumor cells
PURPOSE: Phase I/II trial to study the effectiveness of combining GTI-2040 with docetaxel in treating patients who have recurrent, metastatic, or unresectable locally advanced non-small cell lung cancer, prostate cancer, or other solid tumors.
- Determine the recommended phase II dose of GTI-2040 and docetaxel in patients with recurrent, metastatic, or unresectable locally advanced non-small cell lung cancer, prostate cancer, or other solid tumors (phase I study closed to accrual as of 8/5/2004).
- Determine the toxicity of this regimen in these patients.
- Determine the objective tumor response rate in patients treated with this regimen.
- Determine the stable disease rate, time to disease progression, objective response duration, and duration of stable disease in patients treated with this regimen.
- Determine the pharmacokinetics of GTI-2040 when administered in combination with docetaxel in these patients.
- Correlate the pharmacokinetics of GTI-2040 with the biological and toxic effects of this regimen in these patients.
- Correlate baseline and post-treatment levels of ribonucleotide reductase activity in tumor biopsies and peripheral blood mononuclear cells and tumoral expression of c-myc, ras, pRAF1, pMAPK, and markers of apoptosis with clinical outcome in patients treated with this regimen.
OUTLINE: This is an open-label, dose-escalation, multicenter study.
- Phase I (closed to accrual as of 8/5/2004): Patients receive GTI-2040 IV continuously on days 1-14. Patients also receive docetaxel IV over 1 hour on day 3 during course 1 and on day 1 for all subsequent courses. Courses repeat every 21 days in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity.
Cohorts of 3-6 patients receive escalating doses of GTI-2040 and docetaxel until the maximum tolerated dose (MTD) is determined. The MTD is defined as the dose at which 2 of 3 or 2 of 6 patients experience dose-limiting toxicity. The recommended phase II dose (RP2D) is defined as the dose preceding the MTD.
- Phase II: Patients receive GTI-2040 and docetaxel at the RP2D as in phase I. Patients are followed every 3 months.
PROJECTED ACCRUAL: A total of 12-48 patients (12-18 for phase I [closed to accrual as of 8/5/2004] and 15-30 for phase II) will be accrued for this study within 4-16 months.

Tumors or cancer of the LUNG.
Malignant neoplasm arising from the epithelium of the BRONCHI. It represents a large group of epithelial lung malignancies which can be divided into two clinical groups: SMALL CELL LUNG CANCER and NON-SMALL-CELL LUNG CARCINOMA.
Nuclear phosphoprotein encoded by the p53 gene (GENES, P53) whose normal function is to control CELL PROLIFERATION and APOPTOSIS. A mutant or absent p53 protein has been found in LEUKEMIA; OSTEOSARCOMA; LUNG CANCER; and COLORECTAL CANCER.
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.
A form of highly malignant lung cancer that is composed of small ovoid cells (SMALL CELL CARCINOMA).
Cancer is not just one disease but many diseases. There are more than 100 different types of cancer. Most cancers are named for the organ or type of cell in which they start - for example, cancer that begins in the colon is called colon cancer; cancer th...
