Liposomal Doxorubicin in Treating Patients With Advanced or Recurrent Endometrial Cancer
RATIONALE: Drugs used in chemotherapy use different ways to stop tumor cells from dividing so they stop growing or die.
PURPOSE: Phase II trial to study the effectiveness of liposomal doxorubicin in treating women who have recurrent, stage III, or stage IV endometrial cancer.
Drug: pegylated liposomal doxorubicin hydrochloride
|Study Design:||Primary Purpose: Treatment|
|Official Title:||Evaluation of Doxil as First-Line Therapy of Advanced or Recurrent Endometrial Carcinoma|
|Study Start Date:||May 2000|
|Primary Completion Date:||August 2005 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)|
- Determine the antitumor activity and safety of doxorubicin HCl liposome in patients with advanced or recurrent endometrial cancer.
- Determine the response rate, response duration, and overall survival of these patients treated with this regimen.
OUTLINE: Patients receive doxorubicin HCl liposome IV over 1 hour. Courses repeat every 4 weeks in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity.
Patients are followed every 3 months for 2 years and then every 6 months for 3 years.
PROJECTED ACCRUAL: A total of 19-51 patients will be accrued for this study.
