Interleukin-12, Paclitaxel, and Trastuzumab in Treating Patients With Solid Tumors

2014-08-27 03:56:26 | BioPortfolio

Summary

RATIONALE: Interleukin-12 may kill tumor cells by stopping blood flow to the tumor and by stimulating a person's white blood cells to kill cancer cells. Drugs used in chemotherapy use different ways to stop tumor cells from dividing so they stop growing or die. Monoclonal antibodies such as trastuzumab can locate tumor cells and either kill them or deliver tumor-killing substances to them without harming normal cells. Combining interleukin-12, chemotherapy, and monoclonal antibody therapy may kill more tumor cells.

PURPOSE: Phase I trial to study the effectiveness of interleukin-12, paclitaxel, and trastuzumab in treating patients who have solid tumors.

Description

OBJECTIVES:

- Determine the maximum tolerated dose of interleukin-12 when given in combination with paclitaxel and trastuzumab (Herceptin®) in patients with HER2/neu-overexpressing malignancies.

- Determine the response rate and time to progression in patients treated with this regimen.

- Determine the anti-tumor effect of this regimen in these patients.

OUTLINE: This is a dose-escalation study of interleukin-12.

Patients receive trastuzumab (Herceptin®) IV over 30-90 minutes on days 1, 8, and 15 and paclitaxel IV over 3 hours on day 1 of course 1. Beginning with course 2, patients receive trastuzumab and paclitaxel as in course 1 and interleukin-12 subcutaneously on days 2, 5, 9, 12, 16, and 19. Courses repeat every 21 days for up to 1 year in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity.

Cohorts of 3-6 patients receive escalating doses of interleukin-12 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.

Patients are followed every 3 months for 1 year and then every 6 months thereafter.

PROJECTED ACCRUAL: A total of 3-18 patients will be accrued for this study within approximately 6 months.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A humanized monoclonal antibody against the ERBB-2 RECEPTOR (HER2). As an ANTINEOPLASTIC AGENT, it is used to treat BREAST CANCER where HER2 is overexpressed.

Abnormal accumulation of lymph in the arm, shoulder and breast area associated with surgical or radiation breast cancer treatments (e.g., MASTECTOMY).

Metastatic breast cancer characterized by EDEMA and ERYTHEMA of the affected breast due to LYMPHATIC METASTASIS and eventual obstruction of LYMPHATIC VESSELS by the cancer cells.

A infiltrating (invasive) breast cancer, relatively uncommon, accounting for only 5%-10% of breast tumors in most series. It is often an area of ill-defined thickening in the breast, in contrast to the dominant lump characteristic of ductal carcinoma. It is typically composed of small cells in a linear arrangement with a tendency to grow around ducts and lobules. There is likelihood of axillary nodal involvement with metastasis to meningeal and serosal surfaces. (DeVita Jr et al., Cancer: Principles & Practice of Oncology, 3d ed, p1205)

A deoxycytidine derivative and fluorouracil PRODRUG that is used as an ANTINEOPLASTIC ANTIMETABOLITE in the treatment of COLON CANCER; BREAST CANCER and GASTRIC CANCER.
