Alanosine in Treating Patients With Cancer
RATIONALE: Drugs used in chemotherapy such as alanosine use different ways to stop tumor cells from dividing so they stop growing or die.
PURPOSE: This phase II trial is studying how well alanosine works in treating patients with soft tissue sarcoma, sarcoma of the bone, mesothelioma, non-small cell lung cancer, or pancreatic cancer.
|Study Design:||Masking: Open Label
Primary Purpose: Treatment
|Official Title:||A Phase II, Open-Label, Non-Randomized, Multicenter, Single Agent Study of Intravenous SDX-102 for the Treatment of Patients With MTAP-Deficient Cancer|
|Study Start Date:||March 2003|
|Primary Completion Date:||December 2005 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)|
- Determine the response rates in patients with methylthioadenosine phosphorylase (MTAP)-deficient cancer when treated with alanosine.
- Determine the time to response and duration of response in patients treated with this drug.
- Determine the progression-free survival of patients treated with this drug.
- Determine the pharmacodynamic activity of this drug in these patients, based on special imaging to measure tumor adenosine triphosphate depletion.
- Determine the pharmacokinetic activity of this drug in these patients.
- Determine the safety and tolerability of this drug in these patients.
OUTLINE: This is a nonrandomized, open-label, multicenter study.
Patients receive alanosine IV continuously on days 1-5. Treatment repeats every 21 days for up to 9 courses in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity.
Patients are followed at 28 days.
PROJECTED ACCRUAL: A total of 50-145 patients (10-29 per tumor type) will be accrued for this study.
