|Official Title:||Phase II Study of MGI-114 (NSC# 683863) Administered Intravenously for Five Days Every 28 Days to Patients With Metastatic Colorectal Cancer|
- Antitumor Activity of MGI-114 [ Time Frame: Every 28 day cycle ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
|Study Start Date:||August 1998|
|Study Completion Date:||November 2000|
|Primary Completion Date:||November 2000 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)|
6-hydroxymethylacylfulvene (MGI-114) IV over 5 minutes daily for 5 consecutive days every 28 day cycle.
Drug: Irofulven (MGI-114)
IV over 5 minutes daily for 5 consecutive days. Courses repeated every 28 days. Minimum treatment period is 2 courses.
OBJECTIVES: I. Assess the antitumor activity of 6-hydroxymethylacylfulvene (MGI-114) when given daily for 5 days every 28 days to patients with metastatic adenocarcinoma of the colon or rectum. II. Evaluate the qualitative and quantitative toxicities of MGI-114 given on this schedule in this patient population.
OUTLINE: Patients receive 6-hydroxymethylacylfulvene (MGI-114) IV over 5 minutes daily for 5 consecutive days. Courses are repeated every 28 days. The minimum treatment period is 2 courses. Treatment continues indefinitely in the absence of unacceptable toxic effects or disease progression. Patients are followed at the end of every other course while on the study, and then every 3 months thereafter until death.
PROJECTED ACCRUAL: A total of 18-35 patients will be accrued for this study within 6-10 months.
