Temozolomide in Treating Patients With Recurrent Oligodendroglial Tumors
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 temozolomide in treating patients with recurrent oligodendroglial tumors following combination chemotherapy.
|Study Design:||Primary Purpose: Treatment|
|Official Title:||Second Line Chemotherapy With Temozolomide in Recurrent Oligodendroglial Tumors After PCV-Chemotherapy|
|Study Start Date:||April 1998|
|Primary Completion Date:||March 2000 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)|
OBJECTIVES: I. Determine the response rate and duration of response in oligodendroglial tumors to temozolomide treatment in patients with progressive disease during or after procarbazine/lomustine/vincristine (PCV) chemotherapy. II. Determine the feasibility and toxicity of temozolomide chemotherapy following PVC chemotherapy in these patients.
OUTLINE: This is an open label, multicenter trial. Temozolomide is administered orally on days 1-5 of each 4-week course; treatment continues for a maximum of 12 courses. Patients are followed every 2 months for the first 6 months and then every 3 months thereafter.
PROJECTED ACCRUAL: A total of 16-29 patients will be accrued for this study.
