3-AP in Treating Patients With Previously Untreated Locally Recurrent or Metastatic Renal Cell Carcinoma
RATIONALE: Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as 3-AP, work in 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 locally recurrent or metastatic renal cell (kidney) carcinoma (cancer).
|Study Design:||Masking: Open Label
Primary Purpose: Treatment
|Official Title:||A Phase II Study of Triapine (NSC 663249) in Previously Untreated Patients With Recurrent Renal Cell Carcinoma|
|Study Start Date:||January 2004|
|Study Completion Date:||September 2008|
- Determine the efficacy of 3-AP (Triapine®), in terms of objective response rate, in patients with previously untreated locally recurrent or metastatic renal cell carcinoma.
- Determine the adverse events and tolerability of this drug in these patients.
- Determine the time to disease progression and overall survival of patients treated with this drug.
OUTLINE: This is a nonrandomized, multicenter study.
Patients receive 3-AP (Triapine®) IV over 2 hours on days 1-4 and 15-18. Treatment repeats every 28 days for up to 6 courses (for stable patients) in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity. Patients who achieve a complete response (CR) receive 1 additional course after documentation of CR. Patients who achieve a partial response (PR) receive 2 additional courses after documentation of stable PR.
Patients are followed every 4 weeks until relapse and then every 3 months for up to 2 years.
PROJECTED ACCRUAL: A total of 15-30 patients will be accrued for this study within 1 year.
