  • Unspecified Adult Solid Tumor, Protocol Specific


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 evaluate the effectiveness of KRN5500 in treating patients with metastatic solid tumors.

Study summary:

OBJECTIVES: I. Determine the maximum tolerated dose and toxicities of KRN5500 in patients with solid malignant tumors. II. Characterize the clinical pharmacokinetics of KRN5500 in this patient population. III. Initiate the preliminary evaluation of antitumor activity of KRN5500 in these patients. IV. Determine the recommended Phase II dose of KRN5500. OUTLINE: This is a dose escalation study. Patients receive KRN5500 IV over 1 hour on days 1-3. Courses repeat every 21 days. Patients with stable disease and partial or complete remission continue treatment for 6 months beyond complete remission. Cohorts of 3 to 6 patients receive escalating doses of KRN5500. The maximum tolerated dose is defined as the dose preceding that at which at least 2 of 6 patients experience dose limiting toxicity. PROJECTED ACCRUAL: Approximately 30 patients will be accrued for this study over 9-12 months.
