RATIONALE: Drugs used in chemotherapy use different ways to stop tumor cells from dividing so they stop growing or die. Combining more than one drug may kill more tumor cells.
PURPOSE: Phase I trial to study the effectiveness of UCN-01 and cisplatin in treating patients who have advanced or metastatic solid tumors.
- Determine the maximum tolerated dose of cisplatin when administered with UCN-01 in patients with advanced solid tumors.
- Assess the toxicity and potential antitumor activity of this regimen in these patients.
- Determine the pharmacokinetics of this regimen in these patients.
OUTLINE: This is a dose-escalation, multicenter study of cisplatin.
Patients receive cisplatin IV over 1 hour on day 1 and UCN-01 IV continuously over 36-72 hours beginning on day 2. Treatment continues every 4 weeks for a total of 6 courses in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity.
Cohorts of 1-6 patients receive escalating doses of cisplatin 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 2-3 months for at least 1 year.
PROJECTED ACCRUAL: A total of 9-30 patients will be accrued for this study within 1 year.
Primary Purpose: Treatment

Adjuvant chemotherapy for solid tumors based on platinum-derived compounds such as cisplatin is the treatment of choice in most cases. Cisplatin triggers signaling pathways that lead to cell death, bu...

Despite the enormous advances made in the field of oncology, no solution to the side effect of nephrotoxicity caused by cisplatin used as an antineoplastic agent for approximately 40 years has yet be...
CD133 positive (CD133) cells are cancer stem cells in glioblastoma that are associated with poor prognosis and resistance to radiotherapy. However, the role of CD133 in chemoresistance is inconclusive...
An inorganic and water-soluble platinum complex. After undergoing hydrolysis, it reacts with DNA to produce both intra and interstrand crosslinks. These crosslinks appear to impair replication and transcription of DNA. The cytotoxicity of cisplatin correlates with cellular arrest in the G2 phase of the cell cycle.
A solid, unencapsulated tumor of the KIDNEY composed of spindle mesenchymal cells that resemble FIBROBLASTS or muscle cells. The homogeneous mass typically extends into the renal parenchyma and replaces most of the kidney. In most cases, mesoblastic nephroma is benign and occurs in the fetus or newborn, and rarely in the older child or the adult.
A transplantable, poorly differentiated malignant tumor which appeared originally as a spontaneous breast carcinoma in a mouse. It grows in both solid and ascitic forms.
A malignant cystic or semisolid tumor most often occurring in the ovary. Rarely, one is solid. This tumor may develop from a mucinous cystadenoma, or it may be malignant at the onset. The cysts are lined with tall columnar epithelial cells; in others, the epithelium consists of many layers of cells that have lost normal structure entirely. In the more undifferentiated tumors, one may see sheets and nests of tumor cells that have very little resemblance to the parent structure. (Hughes, Obstetric-Gynecologic Terminology, 1972, p184)
A solid tumor consisting of a dense infiltration of MAST CELLS. It is generally benign.
