Trial Information

A Phase II Study of Intravenous (IV) Vinflunine in Patients With Locally Advanced or Metastatic Transitional Cell Carcinoma (TCC) of the Urothelium

Inclusion Criteria:

- Clinical diagnosis of transitional cell carcinoma of the urothelium that is locally
advanced or metastatic (i.e. patients cannot be candidates for local/regional control
of disease).

- Relapse or progression within 12.5 months of prior cisplatin or carboplatin
containing chemotherapy regimen.

- Adequate performance status (Karnofsky greater or equal to 80).

Exclusion Criteria:

- Receipt of more than 1 prior chemotherapy regimen in any setting.

- Prior discontinuation of platinum due solely to toxicity.

- Current neuropathy greater or equal to CTC grade 2.

- Prior radiation to greater or equal to 30% of bone marrow.

- Inadequate hematologic function: ANC <1,500 cells/mm3, Platelet<100,000 cells/mm3.

- Inadequate hepatic function: total bilirubin > 1.5 times ULN, ALT/AST > 2.5 times ULN
or > 5 times ULN in case of liver metastasis.

- Inadequate renal function: creatinine clearance <20 ml/min.

- Prior allergy to any vinca-alkaloid.
