Brief Summary:

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 vinorelbine in treating patients with metastatic prostate cancer that has not responded to hormone therapy.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Prostate Cancer Drug: vinorelbine tartrate Phase 2

Detailed Description:

OBJECTIVES: I. Evaluate the efficacy of vinorelbine in patients with metastatic hormone-resistant prostate cancer. II. Evaluate the toxicity of vinorelbine in these patients. III. Evaluate the quality of life of these patients, and correlate quality of life with PSA response.

OUTLINE: Patients receive a 5-10 minute intravenous infusion of vinorelbine on day 1 and day 8 of a 21-day course. Patients with stabilization of their disease, partial response, or complete response, receive a maximum of 12 courses of treatment. Patients showing disease progression or severe toxic side effects discontinue treatment. Quality of life and pain are assessed prior to treatment, at days 1 and 8 of each course, and at end of the treatment. Patients are followed every 3 months until disease progression.

PROJECTED ACCRUAL: A total of 14-40 patients will be accrued for this study.
