RATIONALE: Drugs used in chemotherapy use different ways to stop tumor cells from dividing so they stop growing or die.
PURPOSE: Phase I trial to study the effectiveness of BMS-247550 in treating patients who have metastatic, recurrent, or locally advanced, ovarian cancer, breast cancer, or metastatic or unresectable solid tumors.
- Determine the maximum tolerated dose, recommended phase II dose, and associated toxic effects of BMS-247550 in patients with advanced solid tumors.
- Determine the pharmacokinetic and pharmacodynamic relationship of this treatment regimen in these patients.
- Assess the extent of microtubule bundle and mitotic aster formation and cell cycle kinetics in peripheral blood mononuclear cells in these patients treated with this regimen.
- Determine any evidence of antitumor activity of this treatment regimen in these patients.
- Evaluate the relationship between tumor response and the occurrence of mutation in the class 1 isotype of B-tubulin and B-tubulin isotype distribution in patients with advanced or recurrent solid tumors, ovarian cancer, or breast cancer treated with this regimen.
- Investigate MDR1, MRP, and cMOAT mRNA and protein expression as prognosticators of tumor response in these patients treated with this regimen.
- Determine the relationship between stathmin expression and phosphorylation status as a function of response in these patients treated with this regimen.
- Correlate the expression of proapoptotic (p53, bax, bad, and bid) and antiapoptotic (survivin, inhibitors of apoptotic proteins, bcl-2, and bcl-x) proteins in tumor samples and/or ascites with response and clinical outcome in these patients treated with this regimen.
OUTLINE: This is a dose-escalation, multicenter study.
- Part I: Patients with advanced solid tumors receive BMS-247550 IV over 1 hour every 3 weeks. Treatment continues in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity.
Cohorts of 3-6 patients receive escalating doses of BMS-247550 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.
- Part II: Patients with ovarian, breast, or other cancer receive BMS-247550 as in the part I portion of the study at the MTD. Treatment continues in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity.
Patients are followed at 2 months.
PROJECTED ACCRUAL: Approximately 42-66 patients will be accrued for this study within 12-16 months.
Primary Purpose: Treatment

We propose to evaluate ixabepilone in combination with cyclophosphamide for the neoadjuvant treatment of locally advanced breast cancer. In this regimen, ixabepilone is substituted for doc...
The goal of this clinical research study is to learn about certain genes and proteins in tumors that do not respond well to treatment. These features will be compared with the status of t...
To provide extended access to Ixabepilone therapy to subjects with metastatic breast cancer who have completed the previous Phase II study (CA163-107)
The purpose of this study is to find out what effects different schedules of ixabepilone has on the patient and her metastatic breast cancer
The purpose of this clinical research study is to learn if Ixabepilone plus bevacizumab is effective in shrinking or stopping the growth of cancer when given as first line chemotherapy in ...
Gene expression profiling of breast cancer has demonstrated the importance of stromal response in determining the prognosis of invasive breast cancer. The host response to breast cancer is of increasi...
The aim of this study was to assess the frequency of second primary non-breast cancer after breast cancer diagnosis and treatment, and its correlation with clinicopathological features.
Phthalates, known endocrine disruptors, may play a role in breast carcinogenesis. Few studies have examined phthalates in relation to breast cancer (BC), and, to our knowledge, none have considered su...
Assessing trends in breast cancer survival among young women who are largely unaffected by breast cancer screening will provide important information regarding improvements in the effectiveness of can...
Early breast cancer follow-up guidelines for patients who underwent surgery suggest a regular and accurate clinical examination of the breast area, for an early identification of cutaneous or subcutan...
Abnormal accumulation of lymph in the arm, shoulder and breast area associated with surgical or radiation breast cancer treatments (e.g., MASTECTOMY).
Metastatic breast cancer characterized by EDEMA and ERYTHEMA of the affected breast due to LYMPHATIC METASTASIS and eventual obstruction of LYMPHATIC VESSELS by the cancer cells.
A infiltrating (invasive) breast cancer, relatively uncommon, accounting for only 5%-10% of breast tumors in most series. It is often an area of ill-defined thickening in the breast, in contrast to the dominant lump characteristic of ductal carcinoma. It is typically composed of small cells in a linear arrangement with a tendency to grow around ducts and lobules. There is likelihood of axillary nodal involvement with metastasis to meningeal and serosal surfaces. (DeVita Jr et al., Cancer: Principles & Practice of Oncology, 3d ed, p1205)
A deoxycytidine derivative and fluorouracil PRODRUG that is used as an ANTINEOPLASTIC ANTIMETABOLITE in the treatment of COLON CANCER; BREAST CANCER and GASTRIC CANCER.
Carbohydrate antigen elevated in patients with tumors of the breast, ovary, lung, and prostate as well as other disorders. The mucin is expressed normally by most glandular epithelia but shows particularly increased expression in the breast at lactation and in malignancy. It is thus an established serum marker for breast cancer.
In a clinical trial or interventional study, participants receive specific interventions according to the research plan or protocol created by the investigators. These interventions may be medical products, such as drugs or devices; procedures; or change...
