Trial Information

A Phase I Trial of ZD1839 With Capecitabine in Patients With Advanced Solid Tumors (Formerly a Phase I Trial of ZD1839 With Capecitabine and Celecoxib)


OBJECTIVES:

I. Determine the maximum tolerated dose of gefitinib and capecitabine in patients with
advanced solid tumors.

II. Determine the dose-limiting toxic effects of this regimen in these patients.

III. Determine the pharmacologic profile of this regimen in these patients.

OUTLINE: This is a dose-escalation study of gefitinib and capecitabine.

Patients receive oral gefitinib once daily on days 1-14 and oral capecitabine twice daily on
days 8-21. Treatment repeats every 28 days in the absence of disease progression or
unacceptable toxicity. Cohorts of 3-6 patients receive escalating doses of gefitinib and
capecitabine until the maximum tolerated dose (MTD) is determined. The MTD is defined as the
dose preceding that at which at least 2 of 6 patients experience dose-limiting toxicity.

PROJECTED ACCRUAL: A total of 11-41 patients will be accrued for this study within 2.5
years.
