|Brief Title ICMJE||Gemcitabine Combined With Mistletoe in Treating Patients With Advanced Solid Tumors|
|Official Title ICMJE||A Phase I Study Of The Effect Of Mistletoe Extract, A Complementary Medicine Botanical, On Pharmacokinetics, Pharmacodynamics And Safety Of Gemcitabine In Patients With Advanced Solid Tumors|
RATIONALE: Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as gemcitabine, use different ways to stop tumor cells from dividing so they stop growing or die. Mistletoe may slow the growth of tumor cells and may be an effective treatment for solid tumors.
PURPOSE: Phase I trial to study the effectiveness of combining gemcitabine with mistletoe in treating patients who have advanced solid tumors.
OUTLINE: This is an open-label, dose-escalation study.
Patients receive gemcitabine IV over 30 minutes on days 1 and 8 and mistletoe subcutaneously daily starting on day 8 of course 1. Treatment repeats every 21 days for at least 3 courses in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity.
Patients receive escalating doses of gemcitabine and mistletoe in 2 stages.
In both stages, the MTD is defined as the dose preceding that at which 2 patients experience dose-limiting toxicity.
PROJECTED ACCRUAL: A total of 45-51 patients will be accrued for this study.
