BBR 3464 in Treating Patients With Metastatic Small Cell Lung Cancer That Has Not Responded to Previous Treatment

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

Summary

RATIONALE: Drugs used in chemotherapy use different ways to stop tumor cells from dividing so they stop growing or die.

PURPOSE: Phase II trial to study the effectiveness of BBR 3464 in treating patients who have metastatic small cell lung cancer that has not responded to previous treatment.

Description

OBJECTIVES: I. Determine the efficacy of BBR 3464 in terms of response rate in patients with sensitive or refractory metastatic small cell lung cancer. II. Determine the duration of response and time to progression in patients treated with this drug. III. Determine the overall survival of patients treated with this drug. IV. Determine the incidence and severity of toxic effects of this drug in this patient population. V. Determine the pharmacokinetics of this drug in this patient population.

OUTLINE: This is a multicenter study. Patients are stratified according to disease (refractory vs sensitive). Patients receive BBR 3464 IV over 1 hour on day 1. Treatment repeats every 21 days for at least 3 courses in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity. Patients with complete or partial response or stable disease may receive up to 6 courses of therapy. Patients without progressive disease after 6 courses may continue treatment at the investigator's discretion. Patients are followed every 9 weeks for 3 years.

PROJECTED ACCRUAL: A total of 24-74 patients (12-37 per stratum) will be accrued for this study.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

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).
