Flavopiridol and Paclitaxel in Treating Patients With Locally Advanced or Metastatic Esophageal Cancer That Has Not Responded to Previous Paclitaxel

2014-08-27 03:57:25 | BioPortfolio

Summary

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 cancer cells.

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.

Description

OBJECTIVES:

- 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.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

An injectable formulation of albumin-bound paclitaxel NANOPARTICLES.

Tumors or cancer of the ESOPHAGUS.

A pathological condition characterized by the presence of a number of ESOPHAGEAL DIVERTICULA in the ESOPHAGUS.

Circular innermost layer of the ESOPHAGUS wall that mediates esophageal PERISTALSIS which pushes ingested food bolus toward the stomach.

Disorders affecting the motor function of the UPPER ESOPHAGEAL SPHINCTER; LOWER ESOPHAGEAL SPHINCTER; the ESOPHAGUS body, or a combination of these parts. The failure of the sphincters to maintain a tonic pressure may result in gastric reflux of food and acid into the esophagus (GASTROESOPHAGEAL REFLUX). Other disorders include hypermotility (spastic disorders) and markedly increased amplitude in contraction (nutcracker esophagus).
