Troglitazone in Treating Patients With Liposarcoma

2014-07-23 21:57:06 | BioPortfolio


RATIONALE: Troglitazone may help liposarcoma cells develop into normal cells.

PURPOSE: Phase II trial to study the effectiveness of troglitazone in treating patients with malignant liposarcoma.


OBJECTIVES: I. Evaluate the clinical activity of troglitazone in patients with malignant liposarcoma. II. Evaluate the tolerance and safety of troglitazone in this patient population.

OUTLINE: This is an open label trial. All patients are given a single dose of oral troglitazone daily. Patients continue to receive troglitazone as long as their disease responds to treatment or remains stable.

PROJECTED ACCRUAL: Initially, 14 patients of each of the 5 subtypes of liposarcoma will be accrued. If 1 or more patients show evidence of biological response, an additional 16 patients of each subtype will be accrued for a total of 30 per subtype.
