RATIONALE: Drugs used in chemotherapy use different ways to stop tumor cells from dividing so they stop growing or die.
OBJECTIVES: I. Estimate the antitumor activity of paclitaxel in patients with metastatic or persistent leiomyosarcoma of the uterus who have failed treatment protocols of higher priority. II. Determine the nature and degree of toxic effects of paclitaxel in this group of patients.
OUTLINE: Patients receive a continuous infusion of paclitaxel once every 3 weeks over 3 hours. Patients in complete remission, partial remission, or stable disease undergo at least 3 courses of paclitaxel. Paclitaxel continues until disease progression or adverse effects prohibit further treatment. All patients are followed until death.
PROJECTED ACCRUAL: This study anticipates an annual accrual of approximately 25 patients over 2.5 years.
Primary Purpose: Treatment

The purpose of this study is to compare the effects on urothelial cancer of nab-paclitaxel compared to paclitaxel to treat this disease. This research is being done because currently ther...
The purpose of this study is to test any good and bad effects of the combination of study drugs called NKTR-214 and nivolumab.
The hypothesis of this study is that paclitaxel levels increase chromosomal instability (CIN) in tumors and this is lethal to tumors that have pre-existing CIN. Treatment will be administ...
The purpose of the trial is to determine the maximum tolerated dose (MTD) of BEZ235 and BKM120 in combination with weekly paclitaxel and weekly paclitaxel/trastuzumab.
The purpose of this study is to determine whether there is any difference of the pharmacokinetics of two taxane formulations, paclitaxel injection and liposomal paclitaxel in Chinese cance...
In order to search for substances that reduce the neurotoxicity of paclitaxel, the sensitivity of differentiated rat neuronal PC12 cells to paclitaxel was compared to that of malignant and non-maligna...
Paclitaxel (taxol) is an important agent against many tumors, including breast cancer. Ample data documents that paclitaxel inhibits breast cancer metastasis while others prove that paclitaxel enhance...
Esophageal adenocarcinoma (EAC) is the fastest growing cancer in the western world and the overall 5 year survival rate of EAC is below 20%. Most patients with EAC present with locally advanced or wid...
While paclitaxel is one of the most commonly used drugs to treat breast, ovarian, and lung cancers, little is known about the impact of paclitaxel-induced peripheral neuropathy (PIPN) on cancer surviv...
The APICE study evaluates the cost-effectiveness of nanoparticle albumin-bound paclitaxel (nab-paclitaxel - Nab-P) + gemcitabine (G) vs G alone in metastatic pancreatic cancer (MPC) from the Italian N...
An injectable formulation of albumin-bound paclitaxel NANOPARTICLES.
A cyclodecane isolated from the bark of the Pacific yew tree, TAXUS BREVIFOLIA. It stabilizes MICROTUBULES in their polymerized form leading to cell death.
A group of 16-member MACROLIDES which stabilize MICROTUBULES in a manner similar to PACLITAXEL. They were originally found in the myxobacterium Sorangium cellulosum, now renamed to Polyangium (MYXOCOCCALES).
Genus of coniferous yew trees or shrubs, several species of which have medicinal uses. Notable is the Pacific yew, Taxus brevifolia, which is used to make the anti-neoplastic drug taxol (PACLITAXEL).
An experimental sarcoma of mice.
In a clinical trial or interventional study, participants receive specific interventions according to the research plan or protocol created by the investigators. These interventions may be medical products, such as drugs or devices; procedures; or change...
Cancer is not just one disease but many diseases. There are more than 100 different types of cancer. Most cancers are named for the organ or type of cell in which they start - for example, cancer that begins in the colon is called colon cancer; cancer th...
