Thalidomide in Treating Patients With Gynecologic Sarcomas
RATIONALE: Thalidomide may stop the growth of gynecologic sarcomas by stopping blood flow to the tumor.
PURPOSE: Phase II trial to study the effectiveness of thalidomide in treating patients who have recurrent or persistent gynecologic sarcomas.
|Study Design:||Primary Purpose: Treatment|
|Official Title:||Phase II Study of Thalidomide (NSC #66847) in Patients With Sarcomas of Gynecologic Origin|
|Study Start Date:||September 2000|
|Study Completion Date:||August 2006|
- Determine the impact on survival and the antitumor effects of thalidomide in patients with sarcomas or carcinosarcoma (mixed mesodermal tumors) of gynecologic origin.
- Determine the safety and side effect profiles of the target dose of this treatment regimen in this patient population.
- Determine the antiangiogenic and immunologic effects of this treatment regimen in these patients.
OUTLINE: Patients receive oral thalidomide daily. Treatment continues in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity.
Patients are followed every 3 months for 2 years, every 6 months for 3 years, and then annually thereafter.
PROJECTED ACCRUAL: A total of 60 patients will be accrued for this study within 18 months.
