Detailed Description:

OBJECTIVES:

Primary

  • Determine the pharmacokinetics of daunorubicin hydrochloride in pediatric patients with malignancy.

Secondary

  • Evaluate the relationship between body composition (percent body fat) and the pharmacokinetics of daunorubicin hydrochloride in these patients.
  • Correlate the pharmacokinetics of daunorubicin hydrochloride with gender, age, or ethnic background in these patients.
  • Explore, in a preliminary fashion, possible relationships between pharmacokinetic results and toxicity.
  • Explore, in a preliminary fashion, possible relationships between pharmacokinetic results and renal and hepatic function and complete blood count.
  • Explore, in a preliminary fashion, possible genetic polymorphisms that may influence daunorubicin hydrochloride disposition.

OUTLINE: This is a multicenter study.

Patients undergo blood collection prior to, periodically during, and after treatment with daunorubicin hydrochloride for pharmacokinetic analysis.

Patients also undergo body composition testing within 7 days before or after the administration of daunorubicin hydrochloride using dual-energy x-ray absorptiometry.

PROJECTED ACCRUAL: A total of 100 patients will be accrued for this study.
