12-O-Tetradecanoylphorbol-13-acetate in Treating Patients With Hematologic Cancer or Bone Marrow Disorder
RATIONALE: Drugs used in chemotherapy use different ways to stop cancer cells from dividing so they stop growing or die.
PURPOSE: This phase I trial is studying the side effects and best dose of 12-O-tetradecanoylphorbol-13-acetate in treating patients with hematologic cancer or bone marrow disorder that has not responded to previous treatment.
Chronic Myeloproliferative Disorders
Multiple Myeloma and Plasma Cell Neoplasm
Drug: tetradecanoylphorbol acetate
|Study Design:||Primary Purpose: Treatment|
|Official Title:||Phase I Study of 12-O-tetradecanoylphorbol-13-acetate (TPA) in Patients With Refractory Hematologic Malignancies/Bone Marrow Disorders|
|Study Start Date:||December 1998|
|Study Completion Date:||November 2004|
|Primary Completion Date:||November 2004 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)|
- Determine the maximum tolerated dose and dose limiting toxicity of 12-O-tetradecanoylphorbol-13-acetate (TPA) in patients with relapsed or refractory hematologic malignancies or bone marrow disorders.
- Determine the pharmacokinetics of TPA in these patients.
- Determine the effects of TPA on the cellular composition of blood and bone marrow in these patients.
OUTLINE: This is a dose-escalation study.
Patients receive 12-O-tetradecanoylphorbol-13-acetate (TPA) IV over 1 hour on days 1 and 8 followed by 2 weeks of rest. Courses repeat in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity.
Cohorts of 3-6 patients receive escalating doses of TPA until the maximum tolerated dose (MTD) is determined. The MTD is defined as the dose at which no more than 1 of 6 patients experiences dose limiting toxicity.
PROJECTED ACCRUAL: Approximately 36 patients will be accrued for this study.
