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 plus ICI D1694 in treating patients with advanced solid tumors.
OBJECTIVES: I. Determine the maximum tolerated dose of ICI D1694 (TDX) when given with irinotecan (CPT-11) every 3 weeks in patients with advanced solid malignancies. II. Describe the pharmacokinetics of TDX and CPT-11 when given in combination. III. Investigate the relationship between topoisomerase I expression in peripheral mononuclear cells and myelosuppression and/or gastrointestinal toxicity. IV. Investigate the effect of CPT-11 on thymidylate synthase expression in tumor.
OUTLINE: This is a dose-escalating study to determine the maximum tolerated dose (MTD) of ICI D1694 (TDX) given in combination with irinotecan. Irinotecan is given intravenously on day 1 and ICI D1694 intravenously on day 2. Treatment is repeated every 3 weeks until disease progression or unacceptable toxicity intervenes. Cohorts of 3-6 patients receive escalated doses of TDX until the MTD is defined; an additional 10-12 patients will be entered at the MTD to confirm this as a recommended phase II dose.
PROJECTED ACCRUAL: 30-35 patients will be entered.

In this manuscript we aimed at the simultaneous separation and quantification of Gemcitabine and Irinotecan hydrochloride (injected both as single components and in combination) from Sprague Dawley ra...
To enhance synergistic therapeutic effects in breast cancer therapy. Here, we used hollow mesoporous silica nanoparticles as a biocompatible carrier to coload chemotherapy drugs Irinotecan and near-in...
Irinotecan (CPT-11) in combination with 5-fluorouracil (5FU) is widely used in the treatment of colorectal cancer. We assessed potential clinical variables that may predict toxicity and more specifica...
As a treatment for solid tumors, dendritic cell (DC)-based immunotherapy has not been as effective as expected. Here, we review the reasons underlying the limitations of DC-based immunotherapy for sol...
We report a case of triple negative spindle cell carcinoma of the breast, responsive to irinotecan chemotherapy. A 49-year old woman who had a tumor in the chest wall with a skin ulcer visited our hos...
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.
An adenocarcinoma in which the tumor elements are arranged as finger-like processes or as a solid spherical nodule projecting from an epithelial surface.
