3-AP in Treating Patients With Advanced Prostate Cancer
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 3-AP in treating patients who have advanced prostate cancer that has been previously treated with hormone therapy.
|Study Design:||Masking: Open Label
Primary Purpose: Treatment
|Official Title:||A Phase II Study of 3-Aminopyridine-2-Carboxaldehyde Thiosemicarbazone (3-AP, Triapine) in Patients With Advanced Prostate Cancer|
|Study Start Date:||December 2002|
- Determine the response rate in patients with advanced hormone-refractory prostate cancer treated with 3-AP.
- Determine the toxic effects of this drug in these patients.
OUTLINE: This is a multicenter study.
Patients receive 3-AP IV over 2 hours on days 1-4. Treatment repeats every 2 weeks for up to 1 year in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity.
Patients are followed every 2-3 months for up to 1 year.
PROJECTED ACCRUAL: Approximately 13-27 patients will be accrued for this study.
