VNP40101M and Cytarabine in Treating Patients With Hematologic Malignancies

2014-08-27 03:54:52 | BioPortfolio

Summary

RATIONALE: Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as VNP40101M and cytarabine, use different ways to stop cancer cells from dividing so they stop growing or die. Combining more than one drug may kill more cancer cells.

PURPOSE: Phase I trial to study the effectiveness of combining VNP40101M with cytarabine in treating patients who have hematologic malignancies, including myelodysplastic syndrome or relapsed, refractory, or untreated leukemia.

Description

OBJECTIVES:

- Determine the maximum tolerated dose of VP40101M when administered with cytarabine in patients with hematologic malignancies.

- Determine the toxic effects of this regimen in these patients.

OUTLINE: This is an open-label, dose-escalation study of VNP40101M.

Patients receive cytarabine IV over 24 hours on days 1-4 for patients under 65 years of age OR on days 1-3 for patients 65 years of age and over. Patients also receive VNP40101M IV over 15-60 minutes on day 2. Treatment repeats every 4 weeks for up to 3 courses (in patients with responding disease) in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity. Patients with a continued response may receive additional courses at the discretion of the investigator.

Cohorts of 3-6 patients receive escalating doses of VNP40101M until the maximum tolerated dose (MTD) is determined. The MTD is defined as the dose preceding that at which 2 of 3 or 2 of 6 patients experience dose-limiting toxicity. Up to 10 patients may receive treatment at the MTD.

PROJECTED ACCRUAL: Approximately 25 patients will be accrued for this study.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A pyrimidine nucleoside analog that is used mainly in the treatment of leukemia, especially acute non-lymphoblastic leukemia. Cytarabine is an antimetabolite antineoplastic agent that inhibits the synthesis of DNA. Its actions are specific for the S phase of the cell cycle. It also has antiviral and immunosuppressant properties. (From Martindale, The Extra Pharmacopoeia, 30th ed, p472)

Congener of CYTARABINE that is metabolized to cytarabine and thereby maintains a more constant antineoplastic action.

A replication-defective strain of Murine leukemia virus (LEUKEMIA VIRUS, MURINE) capable of transforming lymphoid cells and producing a rapidly progressing lymphoid leukemia after superinfection with FRIEND MURINE LEUKEMIA VIRUS; MOLONEY MURINE LEUKEMIA VIRUS; or RAUSCHER VIRUS.

A strain of Murine leukemia virus (LEUKEMIA VIRUS, MURINE) producing leukemia of the reticulum-cell type with massive infiltration of liver, spleen, and bone marrow. It infects DBA/2 and Swiss mice.

A strain of Murine leukemia virus (LEUKEMIA VIRUS, MURINE) arising during the propagation of S37 mouse sarcoma, and causing lymphoid leukemia in mice. It also infects rats and newborn hamsters. It is apparently transmitted to embryos in utero and to newborns through mother's milk.
