Drug: liposomal NDDP
Procedure: therapeutic thoracoscopy
|Study Design:||Primary Purpose: Treatment|
|Official Title:||Phase II Clinical Study of a Liposome Entrapped Cisplatin Analog (L-NDDP) Administered Intrapleurally in Patients With Malignant Pleural Mesothelioma|
|Study Start Date:||September 1998|
|Primary Completion Date:||May 2001 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)|
OBJECTIVES: I. Determine the antitumor efficacy of a liposomal-cisplatin analogue (L-NDDP) administered into the pleural space in patients with malignant pleural mesothelioma. II. Determine the time to progression and overall survival in this patient population. III. Evaluate the quantitative and qualitative toxicity of intrapleural L-NDDP.
OUTLINE: All patients undergo a thoracoscopy under general anesthesia. The thoracoscope is removed and any collected fluid is drained from the chest cavity. The first treatment with liposomal-cisplatin analogue (L-NDDP) is administered at this time into the intrapleural space over a 10 minute period. Subsequent 10 minute intrapleural infusions of L-NDDP through a percutaneous catheter are administered every 3 weeks. Treatment continues unless unacceptable toxic effects or disease progression occurs. Antitumor activity is assessed 2 months after the second course of therapy, and every 2 months thereafter.
PROJECTED ACCRUAL: A total of 14-30 patients will be accrued for this study within 2.5 years.
