Irinotecan and Paclitaxel in Treating Patients With Metastatic or Recurrent Cancer

2014-08-27 03:58:54 | BioPortfolio

Summary

RATIONALE: Drugs used in chemotherapy use different ways to stop tumor cells from dividing so they stop growing or die. Combining more than one drug may kill more tumor cells.

PURPOSE: Phase I trial to study the effectiveness of irinotecan and paclitaxel in treating patients with metastatic or recurrent cancer.

Description

OBJECTIVES: I. Determine the maximum tolerated dose (MTD) of irinotecan administered in combination with paclitaxel in patients with metastatic or recurrent malignancies. II. Evaluate the toxicity and safety of this combination regimen in this patient population. III. Determine the pharmacokinetic profile of irinotecan in combination with paclitaxel on a weekly schedule and if the sequence of administration influences irinotecan pharmacokinetics in these patients. IV. Determine pharmacodynamic models of irinotecan and its SN-38 and SN-38G metabolites when administered in this weekly combination schedule.

OUTLINE: This is a dose escalation study of irinotecan. Patients receive irinotecan IV concurrently with paclitaxel IV weekly. Patients demonstrating stable disease or partial or complete clinical response continue with treatment as long as dose limiting toxicities are not observed and adequate performance status is maintained. Cohorts of 3 patients receive escalating doses of irinotecan until the maximum tolerated dose is determined or 150 mg/m2 is reached.

PROJECTED ACCRUAL: A total of 36 patients will be accrued for this study.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

An injectable formulation of albumin-bound paclitaxel NANOPARTICLES.

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.
