Safety and Efficacy Study of Torisel and Liposomal Doxorubicin for Patients With Recurrent Sarcoma
Phase I/II Trial of Torisel and Liposomal Doxorubicin in Patients With Advanced Soft Tissue and Bone Sarcomas

The purpose of this study is to identify a safe dosing regimen for the combination of Torisel and liposomal doxorubicin in patients with recurrent sarcoma. A secondary purpose of the study is to determine how effective this combination is for the treatment of recurrent sarcoma.

The effectiveness of treatments for recurrent sarcomas is quite limited. One hypothesis to explain the refractory nature of recurrent sarcomas is the existence of chemotherapy-resistant sarcoma stem cells.

Interventional
Phase 1
Phase 2
Allocation: Non-Randomized
Endpoint Classification: Safety/Efficacy Study
Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment
Masking: Open Label
Primary Purpose: Treatment
Sarcoma
Drug: temsirolimus (Torisel) plus liposomal doxorubicin (Doxil)
Patients will be treated with temsirolimus weekly by iv and with liposomal doxorubicin by iv every 28 days. Initial dosing will be with standard doses for each drug, but dosing will be modified based on toxicity.
Other Names:
  • Torisel
  • Doxil
Experimental: Temsirolimus plus Liposomal Doxorubicin
Intervention: Drug: temsirolimus (Torisel) plus liposomal doxorubicin (Doxil)
