RATIONALE: Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as docetaxel, capecitabine, and cisplatin, work in different ways to stop tumor cells from dividing so they stop growing or die. Giving more than one chemotherapy drug may kill more tumor cells. PURPOSE: This phase I trial is studying the side effects and best dose of docetaxel, capecitabine, and cisplatin in treating patients with metastatic or unresectable solid tumors.

Study summary:

OBJECTIVES: Primary - Determine the maximum tolerated dose of docetaxel, cisplatin, and capecitabine in patients with advanced solid tumors. - Determine the dose-limiting toxicity and recommended phase II dose of this regimen in these patients. Secondary - Determine the non-dose-limiting toxic effects associated with this regimen in these patients. - Determine the pharmacokinetics of this regimen in these patients. - Determine any clinical activity of this regimen in these patients. OUTLINE: This is a dose-escalation study. Patients receive docetaxel IV over 30 minutes and cisplatin IV over 30 minutes on days 1 and 8 and oral capecitabine twice daily on days 1-14. Courses repeat every 21 days in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity. Cohorts of 3-6 patients receive escalating doses of docetaxel, cisplatin, and capecitabine until the maximum tolerated dose (MTD) is determined. The MTD is defined as the dose preceding that at which 2 of 3 or 2 of 6 patients experience dose-limiting toxicity. At least 6 patients receive treatment at the MTD. PROJECTED ACCRUAL: A minimum of 21 patients will be accrued for this study within 1.5 years.
