RATIONALE: Drugs used in chemotherapy use different ways to stop tumor cells from dividing so they stop growing or die. PURPOSE: Phase I trial to study the effectiveness of AG2037 in treating patients who have advanced, metastatic, or recurrent solid tumors.

Study summary:

OBJECTIVES: - Determine the maximum tolerated dose and dose-limiting toxic effects of AG2037 in patients with advanced, metastatic, or recurrent solid tumor. - Determine the safety and tolerance of this drug in these patients. - Assess the pharmacokinetics of this drug in these patients. - Document any antitumor effects of this drug in these patients. OUTLINE: This is a dose-escalation, multicenter study. Patients receive AG2037 IV weekly on weeks 1-3. Treatment repeats every 4 weeks for up to 6 courses in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity. Cohorts of 3-6 patients receive escalating doses of AG2037 until the maximum tolerated dose (MTD) is determined. The MTD is defined as the dose preceding that at which at least 2 of 6 patients experience dose-limiting toxicity. Patients are followed weekly for 4 weeks. PROJECTED ACCRUAL: A total of 18-60 patients will be accrued for this study.
