Danazol in Treating Patients With Advanced or Recurrent Endometrial Cancer

2014-08-27 03:58:27 | BioPortfolio


RATIONALE: Hormone therapy may be an effective treatment for endometrial cancer.

PURPOSE: Phase II trial to study the effectiveness of danazol in treating patients with advanced or recurrent endometrial cancer.


OBJECTIVES: I. Assess the antitumor activity of danazol in patients with advanced or recurrent endometrial cancer. II. Determine the nature and toxicity of danazol in these patients.

OUTLINE: Patients receive oral danazol 4 times per day for at least 4 weeks. Patients with partial response, complete response, or stable disease continue treatment in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity. Patients are followed every 3 months for 2 years, every 6 months for 2 years, and then annually thereafter.

PROJECTED ACCRUAL: A total of 23-56 patients will be accrued for this study within 26 months.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A synthetic steroid with antigonadotropic and anti-estrogenic activities that acts as an anterior pituitary suppressant by inhibiting the pituitary output of gonadotropins. It possesses some androgenic properties. Danazol has been used in the treatment of endometriosis and some benign breast disorders.

Neoplasms of the endometrial stroma that sometimes involve the MYOMETRIUM. These tumors contain cells that may closely or remotely resemble the normal stromal cells. Endometrial stromal neoplasms are divided into three categories: (1) benign stromal nodules; (2) low-grade stromal sarcoma, or endolymphatic stromal myosis; and (3) malignant endometrial stromal sarcoma (SARCOMA, ENDOMETRIAL STROMAL).

A hereditary disease characterized by multiple ectodermal, mesodermal, and endodermal nevoid and neoplastic anomalies. Facial trichilemmomas and papillomatous papules of the oral mucosa are the most characteristic lesions. Individuals with this syndrome have a high risk of BREAST CANCER; THYROID CANCER; and ENDOMETRIAL CANCER. This syndrome is associated with mutations in the gene for PTEN PHOSPHATASE.

The extension of endometrial tissue (ENDOMETRIUM) into the MYOMETRIUM. It usually occurs in women in their reproductive years and may result in a diffusely enlarged uterus with ectopic and benign endometrial glands and stroma.

Tumors or cancer of ENDOMETRIUM, the mucous lining of the UTERUS. These neoplasms can be benign or malignant. Their classification and grading are based on the various cell types and the percent of undifferentiated cells.
