Flavopiridol and Docetaxel 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 combining flavopiridol and docetaxel in treating patients who have advanced solid tumors.
Unspecified Adult Solid Tumor, Protocol Specific
|Study Design:||Primary Purpose: Treatment|
|Official Title:||Phase I Study Of Flavopiridol And Docetaxel (Taxotere) In Patients With Advanced Cancers|
|Study Start Date:||March 2001|
|Study Completion Date:||December 2005|
|Primary Completion Date:||February 2003 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)|
- Determine the dose-limiting toxic effects and maximum tolerated dose of flavopiridol and docetaxel in patients with advanced solid tumors.
- Determine the objective response rate and duration of response in patients treated with this regimen.
- Determine the pharmacokinetics of these drugs in this patient population.
OUTLINE: This is a dose-escalation study.
Patients receive docetaxel IV over 60 minutes on day 1 and flavopiridol IV continuously over 24 hours on day 2. Treatment repeats every 3 weeks in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity.
Cohorts of 3-6 patients receive escalating doses of docetaxel and flavopiridol until the maximum tolerated dose (MTD) is determined. The MTD is defined as the dose preceding that at which 2 of 3 or 6 patients experience dose-limiting toxicity.
PROJECTED ACCRUAL: A total of 18-24 patients will be accrued for this study within 9-11 months.
