  Purpose
The purpose of this study is to determine the clinical toxicities associated with administering sequential dFdC as a one hour infusion followed by a continuous infusion of FUdR over 24 hours with low dose oral LV weekly for three weeks out of four.

Condition Intervention Phase
Neoplasms Drug: gemcitabine Drug: fluorodeoxyuridine Drug: leucovorin Phase 1

Study Type: Interventional
Study Design: Primary Purpose: Treatment

Estimated Enrollment: 60
Study Start Date: September 1995
Estimated Study Completion Date: April 2000
Detailed Description:
The MTD and biochemically active dose of FUDR as a 24-hour and gemcitabine as a 2-hour infusion will be determined first (Part A); if the biochemically active FUDR dose is less than the MTD, new patients will be entered to determine the maximum tolerated duration of FUDR infusion (Part B).
