Fenretinide in Treating Patients With Solid Tumors

2014-07-23 21:57:03 | BioPortfolio

Summary

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 fenretinide in treating patients who have solid tumors.

Description

OBJECTIVES: I. Determine the maximum tolerated dose and toxicity of oral fenretinide in patients with solid malignant tumors. II. Determine the pharmacokinetics of fenretinide and its metabolites. III. Determine the preliminary antitumor activity of fenretinide in this patient population. IV. Determine the recommended phase II starting dose of fenretinide. V. Determine whether fenretinide induces apoptosis in clinical specimens.

OUTLINE: This is a dose escalation study. Patients receive oral fenretinide once daily on days 1, 8 and 9 and three times a day on days 2-7. Courses repeat every 3 weeks in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity. Treatment continues for up to 6 months following complete remission. Accessible tumors are biopsied on day 8. Cohorts of 3-6 patients receive escalating doses of fenretinide until the maximum tolerated dose (MTD) is determined. The MTD is defined as the dose preceding that at which 2 of 6 patients experience dose limiting toxicity.

PROJECTED ACCRUAL: Approximately 21 patients will be accrued for this study within 6-9 months.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A solid, unencapsulated tumor of the KIDNEY composed of spindle mesenchymal cells that resemble FIBROBLASTS or muscle cells. The homogeneous mass typically extends into the renal parenchyma and replaces most of the kidney. In most cases, mesoblastic nephroma is benign and occurs in the fetus or newborn, and rarely in the older child or the adult.

A transplantable, poorly differentiated malignant tumor which appeared originally as a spontaneous breast carcinoma in a mouse. It grows in both solid and ascitic forms.

A malignant cystic or semisolid tumor most often occurring in the ovary. Rarely, one is solid. This tumor may develop from a mucinous cystadenoma, or it may be malignant at the onset. The cysts are lined with tall columnar epithelial cells; in others, the epithelium consists of many layers of cells that have lost normal structure entirely. In the more undifferentiated tumors, one may see sheets and nests of tumor cells that have very little resemblance to the parent structure. (Hughes, Obstetric-Gynecologic Terminology, 1972, p184)

A solid tumor consisting of a dense infiltration of MAST CELLS. It is generally benign.

Diseases of the respiratory system in general or unspecified or for a specific respiratory disease not available.
