Interleukin-2 Plus Interferon Alfa in Treating Adults With Metastatic Cancer

2014-08-27 03:59:08 | BioPortfolio

Summary

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.

Description

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.
