Atrasentan in Treating Patients With Progressive or Recurrent Malignant Glioma
RATIONALE: Drugs used in chemotherapy use different ways to stop cancer cells from dividing so they stop growing or die.
PURPOSE: Phase I trial to study the effectiveness of atrasentan in treating patients who have progressive or recurrent malignant glioma.
Brain and Central Nervous System Tumors
Drug: atrasentan hydrochloride
|Study Design:||Primary Purpose: Treatment|
|Official Title:||A Phase I Evaluation of the Safety and Pharmacokinetics of ABT-627 in Adults With Recurrent Malignant Gliomas|
|Study Start Date:||June 2002|
- Determine the maximum tolerated dose of atrasentan in patients with progressive or recurrent malignant glioma.
- Describe the pharmacokinetics of this drug in these patients.
- Assess preliminary evidence of therapeutic activity of this drug in these patients.
OUTLINE: This is a dose-escalation, multicenter study.
Patients receive oral atrasentan once daily. Courses repeat every 28 days in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity.
Cohorts of 2-10 patients receive escalating doses of atrasentan until the maximum tolerated dose (MTD) is determined. The MTD is defined as the dose preceding that at which at least 1 patient experiences dose-limiting toxicity.
Patients are followed every 2 months.
PROJECTED ACCRUAL: Approximately 35 patients will be accrued for this study.
