  Purpose

Phase I trial to study the effectiveness of EMD 121974 in treating patients who have advanced solid tumors. EMD 121974 may slow the growth of solid tumors by stopping blood flow to the tumor

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • MTD of cilengitide defined as the dose preceding that at which 2 of 6 patients experience dose-limiting toxicity. [ Time Frame: 4 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
    Graded according to the NCI Common Toxicity Criteria version 2.0.

  • Toxic effects of cilengitide described as an adverse event that has an attribution of possibly, probably or definitely related to investigational treatment [ Time Frame: Up to 4 years ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
    Graded according to the NCI Common Toxicity Criteria version 2.0.

  • Biological activity of this regimen [ Time Frame: Up to 4 years ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Measured buy TUNEL assay, CD31 immunohistochemistry, dynamic contrast-enhanced MRI, and FDG-PET scan.


Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Pharmacokinetics of cilengitide [ Time Frame: At 0.5, 1.0, 1.5, 2.0, 3.0, 4.0, 8.0, and 24.0 hours post-end-of-infusion on day 1 of course 1 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Observation of response consisting of complete response, partial response, or stable disease, evaluated using the RECIST criteria [ Time Frame: Up to 4 years ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Time to progression [ Time Frame: Up to 4 years ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Detailed Description:

OBJECTIVES:

I. Determine the toxic effects and maximum tolerated dose of EMD 121974 in patients with advanced solid tumors.

II. Determine the biologic activity of this drug in these patients. III. Determine the pharmacokinetic profile and plasma biological effects of this drug and identify any relationship with its biologic activity or observed toxicity in these patients.

IV. Determine, preliminarily, the antitumor efficacy of this drug in these patients.

OUTLINE: This is a dose-escalation study.

Patients receive EMD 121974 IV over 1 hour twice weekly. Courses repeat every 4 weeks in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity.

Cohorts of 3-10 patients receive escalating doses of EMD 121974 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.
