Trial Information

A Phase II Evaluation of Flavopiridol (NSC# 649890) in the Treatment of Recurrent or Persistent Endometrial Carcinoma


- Determine the antitumor activity of flavopiridol in patients with recurrent or
persistent endometrial carcinoma.

- Determine the nature and degree of toxicity of this drug in these patients.

OUTLINE: This is a multicenter study.

Patients receive flavopiridol IV over 1 hour on days 1-3. Treatment repeats every 21 days
for at least 2 courses in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity.

Patients are followed every 3 months for 2 years, every 6 months for 3 years, and then
annually thereafter.

PROJECTED ACCRUAL: A total of 19-51 patients will be accrued for this study within 10-24
