PURPOSE: Phase II trial to study the effectiveness of bryostatin 1 in treating patients with stage IV breast cancer.
|Condition or disease||Intervention/treatment||Phase|
|Breast Cancer||Drug: bryostatin 1||Phase 2|
- Determine the clinical response of patients with stage IV breast cancer to bryostatin 1.
- Determine the efficacy of this regimen in these patients.
- Estimate the pharmacokinetic parameters of bryostatin 1 when given as 24 hour infusion.
- Determine the ability of this regimen to regulate lymphocyte function in these patients.
- Determine the effect of this regimen on platelet function and protein kinase C activity in these patients.
OUTLINE: Patients receive bryostatin 1 IV over 24 hours. Treatment continues weekly in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity.
Patients are followed every 4-8 weeks for tumor response.
PROJECTED ACCRUAL: A total of 14-25 patients will be accrued for this study.
