CCI-779 in Treating Patients With Prostate Cancer

2014-08-27 03:57:03 | BioPortfolio

Summary

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

PURPOSE: Randomized phase II trial to determine the effectiveness of CCI-779 in treating patients who have progressive prostate cancer.

Description

OBJECTIVES: I. Determine the safety of CCI-779 in patients with androgen-independent prostate cancer. II. Determine the effects of CCI-779 on prostate-specific antigen levels in these patients. III. Assess the pharmacokinetic parameters of CCI-779 in these patients. IV. Assess the possible pharmacodynamic relationship of CCI-779 with clinical response in these patients. V. Determine the impact of CCI-779 on the quality of life in these patients.

OUTLINE: This is a randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled, multicenter study. Patients are randomized to 1 of 4 arms. Arm I: Patients receive low-dose CCI-779 IV over 30 minutes weekly. Arm II: Patients receive high-dose CCI-779 IV over 30 minutes weekly. Arm III: Patients receive low-dose placebo IV over 30 minutes weekly. Arm IV: Patients receive high-dose placebo IV over 30 minutes weekly. Treatment continues in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity. Patients who develop progressive disease while receiving placebo may cross over to the equivalent dose of CCI-779. Quality of life is assessed at baseline; at weeks 4, 8, 12, 24, and 36; and at final/cross-over visit. Patients are followed every 3 months.

PROJECTED ACCRUAL: Approximately 150 patients will be accrued for this study.

Hormone Therapy and Temsirolimus in Treating Patients With Relapsed Prostate Cancer

RATIONALE: Androgens can cause the growth of prostate cancer cells. Hormone therapy may fight prostate cancer by lowering the amount of androgens the body makes. Temsirolimus may stop the ...

Cixutumumab and Temsirolimus in Treating Patients With Metastatic Prostate Cancer

RATIONALE: Monoclonal antibodies, such as cixutumumab, can block tumor growth in different ways. Some block the ability of tumor cells to grow and spread. Others find tumor cells and help ...

Impact of Temsirolimus Therapy on Circulating Tumor Cell Biology In Men With Castration Resistant Metastatic Prostate Cancer

This is a single arm study of 20 men with treatment refractory metastatic CRPC who will receive temsirolimus IV at a dose of 25 mg weekly until progression. Progression will not include PS...

Temsirolimus and Bevacizumab in Treating Patients With Hormone-Resistant Metastatic Prostate Cancer That Did Not Respond to Chemotherapy

RATIONALE: Temsirolimus may stop the growth of tumor cells by blocking some of the enzymes needed for cell growth. Monoclonal antibodies, such as bevacizumab, can block tumor growth in dif...

Temsirolimus to Reverse Androgen Insensitivity for Castration-resistant Prostate Cancer

There is a clear need for novel effective agents in castration-resistant prostate cancer (CRPC), an entity previously referred to as "androgen-insensitive" or "hormone-refractory" prostate...
