Phase I Study of Bryostatin-1 (NSC 339555) and Cisplatin in Advanced Malignancies
OBJECTIVES: I. Determine the maximum tolerated dose and dose limiting toxicity of bryostatin
1 in combination with cisplatin in patients with advanced malignancy. II. Determine the
recommended phase II doses of bryostatin 1 and cisplatin in both a 21 day and 14 day course,
based on toxicity, effect on protein kinase C activity, and pharmacokinetics, in this
patient population. III. Determine the pharmacokinetics of bryostatin 1 in these patients.
IV. Identify any objective tumor responses arising from treatment in these patients.
OUTLINE: This is a dose escalation study of bryostatin 1. Cohorts 1-7: Patients receive
cisplatin IV over 1 hour on day 1 of the first course. Subsequent courses repeat every 21
days with bryostatin 1 IV over 24 hours on day 1 and cisplatin IV over 1 hour on day 2 in
the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity. Cohorts 8-10: Patients receive
cisplatin as in cohorts 1-7. Subsequent courses repeat every 21 days with bryostatin 1 IV
over 1 hour followed by cisplatin on day 1. Cohort 11: Patients receive bryostatin 1 and
cisplatin as in cohorts 8-10. Cohorts of 3-6 patients receive escalating doses of bryostatin
1 or cisplatin until the maximum tolerated dose (MTD) of is determined. The MTD is defined
as the dose preceding that at which 2 of 3 or 2 of 6 patients experience DLT. The
recommended phase II dose (RPTD) is defined as the dose preceding the MTD. After the RPTD is
determined for the 21 day schedule, cohorts of patients receive escalating doses of
bryostatin and constant doses of cisplatin on a 14 day schedule. The MTD14 and RPTD14 are
determined in the same manner as above. Patients are followed for 6 months.
PROJECTED ACCRUAL: A total of 36-72 patients will be accrued for this study.
