Imatinib Mesylate and 17-N-Allylamino-17-Demethoxygeldanamycin in Treating Patients With Chronic Myelogenous Leukemia
RATIONALE: Imatinib mesylate may stop the growth of cancer cells by blocking the enzymes necessary for cancer cell growth. Drugs used in chemotherapy such as 17-N-allylamino-17-demethoxygeldanamycin use different ways to stop cancer cells from dividing so they stop growing or die. Combining imatinib mesylate with chemotherapy may kill more cancer cells.
PURPOSE: This phase I trial is studying the side effects and best dose of 17-N-allylamino-17-demethoxygeldanamycin when given together with imatinib mesylate in treating patients with chronic myelogenous leukemia.

|Official Title:||Phase I Study Of The Combination Of 17-AAG And Imatinib Mesylate (Gleevec) In Patients With Blastic Phase, Accelerated Phase Of Chronic Mesylate Leukemia (CML) Or Patients With Chronic Phase CML Who Have Not Achieved A Cytogenetic Response With Imatinib Mesylate|

- Determine the maximum tolerated dose and dose-limiting toxicity of 17-N-allylamino-17-demethoxygeldanamycin (17-AAG) when administered with imatinib mesylate in patients with chronic myelogenous leukemia.
- Determine the pharmacokinetics of this regimen in these patients.
OUTLINE: This is an open-label, nonrandomized, multicenter, dose-escalation study of 17-N-allylamino-17-demethoxygeldanamycin (17-AAG).
Patients receive oral imatinib mesylate on days 1-21 and 17-AAG IV over 1 hour on days 1, 4, 8, and 12. Courses repeat every 21 days in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity.
Cohorts of 3-6 patients receive escalating doses of 17-AAG until the maximum tolerated dose (MTD) is determined. The MTD is defined as the dose preceding that at which 2 of 3 or 2 of 6 patients experience dose-limiting toxicity. Once the MTD is determined, an additional cohort of 6-10 patients receives treatment at the recommended phase II dose.
PROJECTED ACCRUAL: Approximately 21-42 patients will be accrued for this study within 1.5 years.
