Sodium Salicylate in Treating Patients With Advanced Myelodysplastic Syndrome, Acute Myelogenous Leukemia, or Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemia
RATIONALE: Drugs used in chemotherapy use different ways to stop cancer cells from dividing so they stop growing or die.
PURPOSE: Phase I trial to study the effectiveness of sodium salicylate in treating patients who have advanced myelodysplastic syndrome , acute myelogenous leukemia or chronic lymphocytic leukemia.
Drug: sodium salicylate
|Study Design:||Masking: Open Label
Primary Purpose: Treatment
|Official Title:||A Phase I Study of Salicylate for Adult Patients With Advanced Myelodysplastic Disorders or Acute Myelogenous Leukemia|
|Study Start Date:||August 1999|
|Primary Completion Date:||September 2004 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)|
- Evaluate the safety, toxicity, and pharmacokinetics of sodium salicylate in patients with advanced myelodysplastic syndrome; newly diagnosed, relapsed, or refractory acute myelogenous leukemia; or relapsed or refractory chronic lymphocytic leukemia.
- Define biologic characteristics that influence the likelihood of a clinical response to this drug in this patient population.
OUTLINE: Patients receive oral sodium salicylate twice a day. Intrapatient dose escalation or de-escalation is permitted. Treatment continues for up to 6 weeks in the absence of unacceptable toxicity or disease progression. Responding patients may continue to receive sodium salicylate beyond the 6-week period.
Patients with acute myelogenous leukemia are followed until the end of therapy. Patients with myelodysplastic syndrome are followed until death or progression to leukemia.
PROJECTED ACCRUAL: A total of 20 patients will be accrued for this study within 1 year.
