RATIONALE: Drugs used in chemotherapy use different ways to stop tumor cells from dividing so they stop growing or die. Combining more than one drug may kill more tumor cells. PURPOSE: Phase I trial to study the effectiveness of doxorubicin plus estramustine in treating patients with metastatic recurrent prostate cancer that does not respond to hormone therapy.

Study summary:

OBJECTIVES: I. Estimate the maximum tolerated dose of weekly intravenous doxorubicin (DOX) that can be given in combination with oral estramustine (EM) in patients with metastatic prostate cancer refractory to treatment with hormonal agents. II. Assess the frequency of expression of the multidrug resistance phenotype in biopsy specimens from these patients. III. Assess the response to DOX/EM in these patients. OUTLINE: 2-Drug Combination Chemotherapy. Doxorubicin, DOX, NSC-123127; Estramustine, EM, NSC-89199. PROJECTED ACCRUAL: Three to 18 patients will be entered.


DISEASE CHARACTERISTICS: Biopsy proven metastatic prostate cancer Biopsy requirement waived at principal investigator's discretion if new disease site technically inaccessible and PSA elevated Recurrent disease following orchiectomy, estrogen, or gonadotropin-releasing hormone agonist therapy If previously irradiated: Progressive disease outside prior radiotherapy field required No brain metastases PATIENT CHARACTERISTICS: Age: 18 and over Performance status: Not specified Hematopoietic: Not specified Hepatic: Bilirubin no greater than 1.5 mg/dL ALT/AST less than 3 times greater than normal Renal: Not specified Cardiovascular: Left ventricular ejection fraction at least 45% No NYHA class III/IV status No unstable angina Other: No Crohn's disease, ulcerative colitis, or other inflammatory bowel syndrome PRIOR CONCURRENT THERAPY: Biologic therapy: Not specified Chemotherapy: No prior doxorubicin or estramustine Endocrine therapy: See Disease Characteristics At least 30 days since flutamide Estrogen or gonadotropin-releasing hormone agonists discontinued prior to treatment Radiotherapy: At least 6 weeks since radiotherapy Surgery: Not specified
