Bryostatin 1 in Treating Patients With Recurrent or Refractory Hodgkin's Disease
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 bryostatin 1 in treating patients who have recurrent or refractory Hodgkin's disease.
|Study Design:||Primary Purpose: Treatment|
|Official Title:||Phase II Clinical Evaluation of Bryostatin 1 in Patients With Hodgkin's Disease|
|Study Start Date:||June 1999|
OBJECTIVES: I. Determine the response rate in patients with recurrent or refractory Hodgkin's disease treated with bryostatin 1. II. Determine qualitative and quantitative toxicities of bryostatin 1 in these patients. III. Determine duration of response and survival in these patients.
OUTLINE: Patients receive bryostatin 1 by continuous IV infusion over 72 hours. Courses repeat every 14 days in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity for at least 4 courses. Patients who achieve complete response (CR) are treated with 4 additional courses beyond CR.
PROJECTED ACCRUAL: A total of 14-27 patients will be accrued for this study within 2 years.
