A Phase I Study Of 17-Dimethylaminoethylamino-17-Demethoxygeldanamycin, (17-DMAG) (NSC 707545) In Patients With Advanced Solid Tumors
I. Determine the maximum tolerated dose of
17-dimethylaminoethylamino-17-demethoxygeldanamycin (17-DMAG) in patients with metastatic or
unresectable solid tumors or lymphomas.
II. Determine the safety and toxicity of this drug in these patients. III. Determine the
pharmacokinetics and pharmacodynamics of this drug in these patients.
IV. Determine the recommended phase II dose of this drug for future studies.
I. Determine tumor response in patients treated with this drug.
OUTLINE: This is a dose-escalation, multicenter study.
Patients receive 17-dimethylaminoethylamino-17-demethoxygeldanamycin (17-DMAG) IV over 1-6
hours on days 1-3 or 1-5. Courses repeat every 21 days in the absence of disease progression
or unacceptable toxicity. Cohorts of 1-2 patients receive accelerated escalating doses of
17-DMAG until at least 1 of 2 patients experience dose-limiting toxicity (DLT). Cohorts are
then expanded to 3-6 patients who receive escalating doses (in a standard manner) of 17-DMAG
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 DLT.
Patients are followed at 4 weeks.
