RATIONALE: Interleukin-2 may stimulate a person's white blood cells to kill metastatic cancer cells. Interferon alfa may interfere with the growth of the cancer cells. Combining interleukin-2 and interferon alfa may kill more cancer cells.
PURPOSE: Phase II trial to study the effectiveness of interleukin-2 plus interferon alfa in treating adults with metastatic cancer.
OBJECTIVES: I. Determine the response rate, failure-free survival, and overall survival of interleukin-2 and interferon alpha administered subcutaneously on an outpatient basis for 8 weeks to patients with metastatic cancer. II. Determine the toxicities associated with this therapy.
OUTLINE: Biological Response Modifier Therapy. Interleukin-2 (Cetus), IL-2, NSC-373364; Interferon alpha (Schering), IFN-A, NSC-377523.
PROJECTED ACCRUAL: Up to 30 patients with various malignancies will be entered.
Primary Purpose: Treatment
Chronic Myeloproliferative Disorders
aldesleukin, recombinant interferon alfa
Hoag Memorial Hospital Presbyterian

The primary purpose of this study is to compare the efficacy of pegylated interferon alfa-2b (PEG Intron, C98026) versus interferon alfa-2b (Intron® A) in the treatment of participants wi...
This study will determine the efficacy of PEG-Intron (SCH 54031) in participants with chronic Hepatitis C virus (HCV) infection who have not been previously treated with interferon. Partic...
This study will evaluate the safety and efficacy of alb-interferon in adults with genotype 2 or 3 chronic hepatitis
Sustained suppression of HBsAg production after interferon treatment was not reported for children with chronic hepatitis B and with genotype C infection that is prevalent in Asia. Among children with...
To evaluate in vivo confocal microscopy (IVCM) findings of ocular surface squamous neoplasia (OSSN) during treatment with topical interferon alfa-2b (IFN alfa-2b).
Approximately one-third of patients have durable responses after finite (48-week) treatment with peginterferon alfa-2a. The ability to identify patients likely to respond would be particularly useful ...
Interferon is the only treatment option in chronic delta hepatitis (CDH). A CDH database (333 patients, 161 with interferon treatment history) was analyzed for effects of treatment duration on virolog...

Clonal myeloid disorders that possess both dysplastic and proliferative features but are not properly classified as either MYELODYSPLASTIC SYNDROMES or MYELOPROLIFERATIVE DISORDERS.
Interferon secreted by leukocytes, fibroblasts, or lymphoblasts in response to viruses or interferon inducers other than mitogens, antigens, or allo-antigens. They include alpha- and beta-interferons (INTERFERON-ALPHA and INTERFERON-BETA).
Blood is a specialized bodily fluid that delivers necessary substances to the body's cells (in animals) – such as nutrients and oxygen – and transports waste products away from those same cells. In vertebrates, it is composed of blo...
