RATIONALE: Drugs used in chemotherapy use different ways to stop tumor cells from dividing so they stop growing or die.
PURPOSE: Phase II trial to study the effectiveness of paclitaxel in treating patients with AIDS-related Kaposi's sarcoma.
|Condition or disease||Intervention/treatment||Phase|
|Sarcoma||Drug: indinavir sulfate Drug: nelfinavir mesylate Drug: paclitaxel Drug: ritonavir Drug: saquinavir mesylate||Phase 2|
- Determine whether the body distribution and plasma clearance of paclitaxel is affected by protease inhibitors (e.g., indinavir, ritonavir, saquinavir mesylate, or nelfinavir mesylate).
OUTLINE: Patients are stratified according to protease inhibitor treatment (yes vs no), prior paclitaxel (yes vs no), and prior doxorubicin or daunorubicin (yes vs no).
Patients receive paclitaxel IV over 3 hours on day 1. Treatment continues every 2 weeks for at least 1 course in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity. Patients who previously received paclitaxel receive no more than 1 course during this study.
PROJECTED ACCRUAL: A total of 33 patients will be accrued for this study.
