Combination Chemotherapy in Treating Patients With Advanced Solid Tumors
RATIONALE: Drugs used in chemotherapy use different ways to stop tumor cells from dividing so they stop growing or die. Combining more than one drug may kill more tumor cells.
PURPOSE: Phase I trial to study the effectiveness of combination chemotherapy in treating patients who have advanced solid tumors.
Unspecified Adult Solid Tumor, Protocol Specific
Drug: leucovorin calcium
|Study Design:||Primary Purpose: Treatment|
|Official Title:||A Phase I Study of Docetaxel Plus 5-FU, Cisplatin and Leucovorin in Patients With Advanced Solid Tumors|
|Study Start Date:||January 2000|
|Study Completion Date:||May 2002|
|Primary Completion Date:||May 2002 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)|
OBJECTIVES: I. Determine the maximum tolerated dose of docetaxel administered in combination with cisplatin, fluorouracil, and leucovorin calcium in patients with advanced solid tumors. II. Determine the toxicities associated with this combination regimen in this patient population. III. Evaluate the clinical response to this combination regimen in these patients.
OUTLINE: This is a dose escalation study of docetaxel and fluorouracil (5-FU). Patients receive docetaxel IV over 1 hour on day 1, cisplatin IV over 1 hour on day 2, and leucovorin calcium IV immediately followed by 5-FU IV on days 1-5. Treatment repeats every 3 weeks in the absence of disease progression. Cohorts of 3-5 patients receive escalating doses of docetaxel and 5-FU until the maximum tolerated dose (MTD) is determined. The MTD is defined as the dose preceding that at which more than 1 of 3 or 1 of 5 patients experience dose limiting toxicity. Patients are followed every 3 months until death.
PROJECTED ACCRUAL: A total of 30 patients will be accrued for this study over 2 years.
