Trial Information

A Dose Finding Study of R115777 (NSC 702818) in Patients With Advanced Hematologic Malignancies


OBJECTIVES:

I. Determine the relationship between tipifarnib dose and inhibition of farnesylation in
malignant cells of patients with advanced hematologic malignancies.

II. Determine the safety profile of this drug in this patient population. III. Determine the
clinical activity of this drug in these patients.

OUTLINE: This is a randomized study. Patients are randomized to 1 of 4 dose levels.

Patients receive oral tipifarnib twice daily for 21 days. Courses repeat every 28 days in
the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity. After 1 course of therapy,
patients may receive subsequent therapy at the maximum tolerated dose at the investigator's
discretion.
