Recruitment status was Active, not recruiting
RATIONALE: Drugs used in chemotherapy use different ways to stop tumor cells from dividing so they stop growing or die.
PURPOSE: Phase II trial to study the effectiveness of DHA-paclitaxel in treating patients who have metastatic pancreatic cancer.
|Study Design:||Primary Purpose: Treatment|
|Official Title:||Phase II Open-Label Study of Taxoperxin (DHA-Paclitaxel) Injection by 2 Hour Intravenous Infusion in Patients With Metastatic Cancer of the Pancreas|
|Study Start Date:||June 2001|
- Determine the tumor response rate, duration of response, and time to disease progression in patients with metastatic carcinoma of the pancreas treated with DHA-paclitaxel.
- Determine the overall survival of patients treated with this drug.
- Determine the toxicity profile of this drug in these patients.
- Assess the quality of life of patients treated with this drug.
OUTLINE: This is a multicenter study.
Patients receive DHA-paclitaxel IV over 2 hours on day 1. Treatment repeats every 21 days in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity.
Quality of life is assessed at baseline, every 2 courses, and at completion of treatment.
Patients are followed every 3 months.
PROJECTED ACCRUAL: A total of 21-50 patients will be accrued for this study.
