3-Aminopyridine-2-carboxaldehyde Thiosemicarbazone in Treating Patients With Solid Tumors
An Open Label, Dose Escalation Study to Evaluate Safety, Tolerability, and Pharmacokinetics of 3-Aminopyridine-2-Carboxaldehyde Thiosemicarbazone (3-AP) in Cancer Patients Using a Single Daily Dose for Five Days

RATIONALE: Drugs used in chemotherapy use different ways to stop tumor cells from dividing so they stop growing or die.

PURPOSE: Phase I trial to study the effectiveness of 3-aminopyridine-2-carboxaldehyde thiosemicarbazone in treating patients who have solid tumors that have not responded to previous treatment.

OBJECTIVES: I. Determine the effects of 3-aminopyridine-2-carboxaldehyde thiosemicarbazone (3-AP) in patients with solid tumors by evaluating the safety and tolerability, maximum tolerated dose (MTD) and recommended dose for Phase II studies, pharmacokinetics, and tumor response.

OUTLINE: This is a dose escalation study. Patients receive 3-aminopyridine-2-carboxaldehyde thiosemicarbazone (3-AP) IV over 2 hours on days 1-5. Treatment repeats every 4 weeks in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity. Cohorts of 1-6 patients receive escalating doses of 3-AP until the maximum tolerated dose (MTD) is determined. The MTD is defined as the dose preceding that at which 2 of 6 patients experience dose limiting toxicity. Patients are followed for 4 weeks or until recovered.

PROJECTED ACCRUAL: Approximately 21 patients will be accrued for this study.
