RATIONALE: Drugs used in chemotherapy use different ways to stop cancer cells from dividing so they stop growing or die.
PURPOSE: This phase I trial is studying the side effects and best dose of 12-O-tetradecanoylphorbol-13-acetate in treating patients with hematologic cancer or bone marrow disorder that has not responded to previous treatment.
- Determine the maximum tolerated dose and dose limiting toxicity of 12-O-tetradecanoylphorbol-13-acetate (TPA) in patients with relapsed or refractory hematologic malignancies or bone marrow disorders.
- Determine the pharmacokinetics of TPA in these patients.
- Determine the effects of TPA on the cellular composition of blood and bone marrow in these patients.
OUTLINE: This is a dose-escalation study.
Patients receive 12-O-tetradecanoylphorbol-13-acetate (TPA) IV over 1 hour on days 1 and 8 followed by 2 weeks of rest. Courses repeat in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity.
Cohorts of 3-6 patients receive escalating doses of TPA until the maximum tolerated dose (MTD) is determined. The MTD is defined as the dose at which no more than 1 of 6 patients experiences dose limiting toxicity.
PROJECTED ACCRUAL: Approximately 36 patients will be accrued for this study.
Primary Purpose: Treatment

RATIONALE: Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as tetradecanoylphorbol acetate (TPA), dexamethasone, and choline magnesium trisalicylate, work in different ways to stop the growth of cancer c...
The purpose of this study is to find out the safe dose range of the study drug in patients with myeloproliferative disorders.
The three main chronic myeloproliferative disorders are polycythemia vera (PV), essential thrombocythemia (ET) and idiopathic myelofibrosis (IMF). These are clonal neoplastic diseases cha...
RATIONALE: Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as clofarabine and cyclophosphamide, work in different ways to stop the growth of cancer cells, either by killing the cells or by stopping them ...
RATIONALE: Analyzing tissue and blood samples from healthy volunteers or patients with Fanconi anemia, myeloproliferative disorders, or myeloma in the laboratory may help doctors learn mor...
Platelet distribution width (PDW) and mean platelet volume are markers of platelet activation and have prognostic value in coronary heart diseases, as well as in cancers of solid organs. In this study...
In general, chronotherapy is desirable for a more effective and/or safe dosage regimen. In this study, a daily rhythm of skin vitamin D receptor (VDR) and chronotherapeutic profiles of maxacalcitol, a...
Chronic diseases are prevalent and the leading causes of mortality. Comorbidity of substance use disorders (SUDs) and chronic diseases is understudied to inform behavioral healthcare integration.
In the last decade, a group of chronic disorders associated with fatigue (CDAF) emerged as the leading cause of chronic fatigue, chronic pain, and functional impairment, all of which have been often l...
In many patients, chronic heart failure (CHF) is associated with chronic kidney disease (CKD). Virtually all patients with terminal CKD and many patients with early CKD display various disorders of mi...
Clonal myeloid disorders that possess both dysplastic and proliferative features but are not properly classified as either MYELODYSPLASTIC SYNDROMES or MYELOPROLIFERATIVE DISORDERS.
A phorbol ester found in CROTON OIL with very effective tumor promoting activity. It stimulates the synthesis of both DNA and RNA.
A myelodysplastic/myeloproliferative disorder characterized by myelodysplasia associated with bone marrow and peripheral blood patterns similar to CHRONIC MYELOID LEUKEMIA, but cytogenetically lacking a PHILADELPHIA CHROMOSOME or bcr/abl fusion gene (GENES, ABL).
Conditions caused by abnormal CILIA movement in the body, usually causing KARTAGENER SYNDROME, chronic respiratory disorders, chronic SINUSITIS, and chronic OTITIS. Abnormal ciliary beating is likely due to defects in any of the 200 plus ciliary proteins, such as missing motor enzyme DYNEIN arms.
A leukemia affecting young children characterized by SPLENOMEGALY, enlarged lymph nodes, rashes, and hemorrhages. Traditionally classed as a myeloproliferative disease, it is now considered a mixed myeloproliferative-mylelodysplastic disorder.
Head and neck cancers
Cancer can occur in any of the tissues or organs in the head and neck. There are over 30 different places that cancer can develop in the head and neck area. Mouth cancers (oral cancers) - Mouth cancer can develop on the lip, the tongue, the floor...
