Carboxyamidotriazole and Paclitaxel in Treating Patients With Advanced Solid Tumors or Refractory Lymphomas
RATIONALE: Drugs used in chemotherapy use different ways to stop cancer cells from dividing so they stop growing or die. Combining more than one drug may kill more cancer cells.
PURPOSE: This phase I trial is studying the side effects and best dose of carboxyamidotriazole and paclitaxel in treating patients with advanced solid tumors or refractory lymphomas.
Brain and Central Nervous System Tumors
Small Intestine Cancer
Unspecified Adult Solid Tumor, Protocol Specific
|Study Design:||Primary Purpose: Treatment|
|Official Title:||A PHASE I STUDY OF THE COMBINATION OF CAI AND PACLITAXEL IN ADULT PATIENTS WITH REFRACTORY CANCERS OR LYMPHOMA|
|Study Start Date:||October 1994|
|Study Completion Date:||July 2006|
|Primary Completion Date:||July 2006 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)|
- Determine the maximum tolerated dose of paclitaxel when combined with carboxyamidotriazole in patients with advanced solid tumors or refractory lymphomas.
- Determine the pharmacokinetics and toxicities of this regimen in these patients.
- Identify diseases for which this combination appears active.
OUTLINE: This is a dose escalation study.
Patients receive oral carboxyamidotriazole (CAI) daily with paclitaxel IV over 3 hours on day 8 and every 3 weeks thereafter. Course 1 is 28 days and all other subsequent courses are 21 days. Treatment continues in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity. Patients who achieve complete response receive 2 additional courses of treatment.
Sequential dose escalation of CAI is followed by sequential dose escalation of paclitaxel. Dose escalation in cohorts of 3 to 6 patients each continues 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.
PROJECTED ACCRUAL: A total of 70 patients will be accrued for this study.
