|Official Title:||A Phase II Trial of 6-Hydroxymethylacylfulvene (HMAF; MGI-114) in Patients With Advanced Cervical Carcinoma|
OBJECTIVES: I. Evaluate the efficacy of 6-hydroxymethylacylfulvene in patients with stage IVB or recurrent cervical carcinoma. II. Determine the safety of this drug in this patient population.
OUTLINE: Patients receive 6-hydroxymethylacylfulvene IV over 5 minutes daily for 5 consecutive days. Treatment continues every 28 days in the absence of unacceptable toxicity or disease progression.
PROJECTED ACCRUAL: A total of 12-37 patients will be accrued for this study within 6-19 months.
