PURPOSE: Phase II trial to study the effectiveness of combining flavopiridol and paclitaxel in treating patients who have locally advanced or metastatic esophageal cancer that has not responded to previous paclitaxel therapy.
- Determine the response rate in patients with paclitaxel-refractory locally advanced or metastatic esophageal cancer treated with sequential paclitaxel and flavopiridol.
- Determine the toxicity of this regimen in these patients.
- Assess the quality of life of patients treated with this regimen.
- Obtain pharmacokinetic information about this regimen.
OUTLINE: This is a multicenter study.
Patients receive paclitaxel IV over 3 hours on day 1 and flavopiridol IV continuously over 24 hours on day 2 weekly for 3 weeks. Courses repeat every 3 weeks in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity.
Quality of life is assessed at baseline, after courses 1 and 2, and then every 2 courses thereafter.
PROJECTED ACCRUAL: A total of 12-37 patients will be accrued for this study within 6-18 months.
Primary Purpose: Treatment
