PURPOSE: Phase I trial to study the effectiveness of combining paclitaxel and L-778,123 in treating patients who have recurrent or refractory solid tumors or lymphomas.
OBJECTIVES: I. Determine the maximum tolerated dose of L-778,123 when combined with paclitaxel in patients with recurrent or refractory solid tumors or lymphomas. II. Evaluate the safety, tolerability, and dose limiting toxicity of this regimen in these patients. III. Assess steady state plasma concentrations of various doses of L-778,123 combined with paclitaxel in these patients. IV. Evaluate radiologic or tumor marker responses to this regimen in these patients. V. Evaluate the relationship between ras mutations and response to this regimen in these patients.
OUTLINE: This is a dose escalation, multicenter study of L-778,123. Patients receive paclitaxel IV over 3 hours followed within 24 hours by L-778,123 IV over 7 days. Courses repeat every 21 days in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity. Patients achieving complete response receive 2 courses after documentation of response. Cohorts of 1-3 patients receive escalating doses of L-778,123 until the maximum tolerated dose (MTD) is determined. The MTD is defined as the dose at which 2 of 6 patients experience dose limiting toxicity. Patients are followed at about 2 weeks.
PROJECTED ACCRUAL: A maximum of 40 patients will be accrued for this study.

A leukemia/lymphoma found predominately in children and young adults and characterized LYMPHADENOPATHY and THYMUS GLAND involvement. It most frequently presents as a lymphoma, but a leukemic progression in the bone marrow is common.
B-cell lymphoid tumors that occur in association with AIDS. Patients often present with an advanced stage of disease and highly malignant subtypes including BURKITT LYMPHOMA; IMMUNOBLASTIC LARGE-CELL LYMPHOMA; PRIMARY EFFUSION LYMPHOMA; and DIFFUSE, LARGE B-CELL, LYMPHOMA. The tumors are often disseminated in unusual extranodal sites and chromosomal abnormalities are frequently present. It is likely that polyclonal B-cell lymphoproliferation in AIDS is a complex result of EBV infection, HIV antigenic stimulation, and T-cell-dependent HIV activation.
A form of undifferentiated malignant LYMPHOMA usually found in central Africa, but also reported in other parts of the world. It is commonly manifested as a large osteolytic lesion in the jaw or as an abdominal mass. B-cell antigens are expressed on the immature cells that make up the tumor in virtually all cases of Burkitt lymphoma. The Epstein-Barr virus (HERPESVIRUS 4, HUMAN) has been isolated from Burkitt lymphoma cases in Africa and it is implicated as the causative agent in these cases; however, most non-African cases are EBV-negative.
Two or more distinct types of malignant lymphoid tumors occurring within a single organ or tissue at the same time. It may contain different types of non-Hodgkin lymphoma cells or both Hodgkin and non-Hodgkin lymphoma cells.
