Pyrazoloacridine in Treating Women With Refractory Metastatic Breast Cancer
RATIONALE: Drugs used in chemotherapy use different ways to stop tumor cells from dividing so they stop growing or die.
PURPOSE: Phase II trial to study the effectiveness of pyrazoloacridine in treating women who have refractory metastatic breast cancer.
|Study Design:||Primary Purpose: Treatment|
|Official Title:||Phase II Evaluation of Pyrazoloacridine (NSC #366140) in Patients With Metastatic Breast Cancer|
|Study Start Date:||July 1997|
|Study Completion Date:||January 2002|
OBJECTIVES: I. Determine the efficacy of pyrazoloacridine in patients with refractory breast cancer. II. Determine the toxic effects of pyrazoloacridine in these patients.
OUTLINE: Patients receive pyrazoloacridine IV over 3 hours. Treatment repeats every 21 days for 2-8 courses in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity.
PROJECTED ACCRUAL: A total of 12-35 patients will be accrued for this study within 1 year.
