Aminocamptothecin in Treating Patients With T-Cell Lymphoma
RATIONALE: Drugs used in chemotherapy use different ways to stop cancer cells from dividing so they stop growing or die.
PURPOSE: Phase II trial to study the effectiveness of aminocamptothecin in treating patients with advanced cutaneous T-cell lymphoma.
|Study Design:||Primary Purpose: Treatment|
|Official Title:||PHASE II TRIAL OF 9-AMINOCAMPTOTHECIN IN ADVANCED CUTANEOUS T CELL LYMPHOMA|
|Study Start Date:||May 1995|
OBJECTIVES: I. Assess the antitumor activity of aminocamptothecin (9-AC) administered by 72-hour infusion in patients with advanced cutaneous T-cell lymphoma. II. Assess the toxic effects of 9-AC administered on this schedule.
OUTLINE: Single-Agent Chemotherapy. Aminocamptothecin, 9-AC, NSC-603071.
PROJECTED ACCRUAL: A total of 30 patients will be accrued; if no more than 1 response is seen in the first 15 patients, the study will close. Probable duration of study is 18 months.
