17-N-Allylamino-17-Demethoxygeldanamycin in Treating Patients With Chronic Phase Chronic Myelogenous Leukemia That Did Not Respond to Imatinib Mesylate
RATIONALE: Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as 17-N-allylamino-17-demethoxygeldanamycin, work in different ways to stop the growth of cancer cells, either by killing the cells or by stopping them from dividing. It may also stop the growth of cancer cells by blocking some of the enzymes needed for cell growth.
PURPOSE: This phase I trial is studying the side effects and best dose of 17-N-allylamino-17-demethoxygeldanamycin in treating patients with chronic phase chronic myelogenous leukemia that did not respond to imatinib mesylate.
|Study Design:||Masking: Open Label
Primary Purpose: Treatment
|Official Title:||A Phase 1, Multicenter, Open-Label, Dose-Escalation, Safety, Pharmacokinetic, and Pharmacodynamic Study of Intravenously Administered CNF1010 )17-(Allylamino)-17-Demethoxygeldanamycin [17-AAG]) in Patients With Gleevec-Resistent Chronic Myelogenous Leukemia|
|Study Start Date:||October 2004|
|Study Completion Date:||October 2006|
- Determine the maximum tolerated dose and dose-limiting toxicity of 17-N-allylamino-17-demethoxygeldanamycin (17-AAG), in terms of frequency, severity, and duration of treatment-emergent adverse events, in patients with imatinib mesylate-resistant Philadelphia chromosome (Ph)-positive chronic phase chronic myelogenous leukemia.
- Determine the pharmacokinetics of this drug and its primary metabolite (17-amino-17-demethoxygeldanamycin) in these patients.
- Determine the hematologic response rate, in terms of WBC count, platelet count, and assessment of blast cells in peripheral blood, in patients treated with this drug.
- Determine the cytogenic response rate, in terms of Ph-positive progenitor cells in the bone marrow, in patients treated with this drug.
- Assess the effect of this drug on pharmacodynamic markers (i.e., CRKL phosphorylation, BCR-ABL kinase activity, and BCR-ABL, RAF kinase, and HSP70 expression) in these patients.
OUTLINE: This is an open label, dose-escalation, multicenter study.
Patients receive 17-N-allylamino-17-demethoxygeldanamycin (17-AAG) IV over 15 minutes or 1 hour (depending on the dose administered) once on days 1, 4, 8, 11, 15, 18, 22, and 25. Treatment repeats every 28 days for up to 3 courses in the absence of unacceptable toxicity or disease progression. Eligible patients may receive additional courses of 17-AAG at the discretion of the investigator.
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. Up to 10 additional patients are treated at the MTD.
Patients are followed for 1 month.
PROJECTED ACCRUAL: Approximately 40 patients will be accrued for this study.
