RATIONALE: Drugs used in chemotherapy such as soblidotin use different ways to stop tumor cells from dividing so they stop growing or die.
PURPOSE: Phase II trial to study the effectiveness of soblidotin in treating patients who have advanced or metastatic soft tissue sarcoma.
- Determine the objective tumor response rate in patients with advanced or metastatic soft tissue sarcoma with prior exposure to anthracycline-based chemotherapy when treated with soblidotin.
- Determine the duration of response in patients treated with this drug.
- Determine the time to tumor progression in patients treated with this drug.
- Determine the median survival time and 12-month survival rate of patients treated with this drug.
- Determine the quantitative and qualitative toxic effects of this drug in these patients.
- Determine the pharmacokinetics of this drug in these patients.
OUTLINE: This is an open-label, multicenter study.
Patients receive soblidotin IV over 1 hour on days 1 and 8. Treatment repeats every 3 weeks for at least 2 courses in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity.
Patients are followed every 3 months for survival.
PROJECTED ACCRUAL: A total of 27 patients will be accrued for this study within 12 months.
