Paclitaxel and BMS-214662 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 paclitaxel and BMS-214662 in treating patients who have advanced solid tumors.
Unspecified Adult Solid Tumor, Protocol Specific
|Study Design:||Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment
Masking: Open Label
Primary Purpose: Treatment
|Official Title:||Phase I Study of BMS-214662 and Paclitaxel in Patients With Advanced Malignancies|
- Determine the maximum tolerated dose of BMS-214662 in combination with paclitaxel. [ Time Frame: Treatment repeats every 3 weeks for at least 2 courses in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity. ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
|Study Start Date:||July 2000|
|Study Completion Date:||April 2002|
|Primary Completion Date:||December 2001 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)|
OBJECTIVES: I. Determine the maximum tolerated dose of BMS-214662 in combination with paclitaxel in patients with advanced solid tumors. II. Determine the safety and tolerability of this regimen in these patients. III. Determine the pharmacokinetics of this treatment regimen in this patient population. IV. Determine the pharmacodynamic effects of this treatment regimen in serial tumor biopsies in these patients. V. Determine the cytotoxicity of this treatment regimen in these patients.
OUTLINE: This is a dose-escalation study of BMS-214662. Patients receive paclitaxel IV over 3 hours on day 1 and BMS-214662 IV over 1 hour on day 3 of course 1. For all subsequent courses, patients receive paclitaxel IV over 3 hours followed 30 minutes later by BMS-214662 IV over 1 hour on day 1. Treatment repeats every 3 weeks for at least 2 courses in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity. Patients with stable disease or objectively responding disease receive additional therapy at the investigator's discretion. Cohorts of 3-6 patients receive escalating doses of BMS-214662 until the maximum tolerated dose (MTD) is determined. The MTD is defined as the dose preceding that at which 2 of 6 patients experience dose-limiting toxicity. Patients are followed every 4 weeks.
PROJECTED ACCRUAL: A maximum of 18-21 patients will be accrued for this study within 12-15 months.
