Trial Information

Phase II Clinical Trial of Bryostatin-1, NSC 339555, and Cisplatin in Patients With Recurrent and/or Advanced Inoperable Squamous Cell, Adeno or Adenosquamous Cell Carcinoma of the Cervix

OBJECTIVES: I. Determine the safety and efficacy of bryostatin-1 plus cisplatin in patients
with recurrent or advanced carcinoma of the cervix. II. Determine the response rate,
progression free interval, and duration of survival of these patients when treated with this

OUTLINE: This is a multicenter study. Patients receive bryostatin-1 IV over 1 hour and
cisplatin IV over 1 hour on day 1. Treatment continues every 21 days in the absence of
disease progression or unacceptable toxicity. Patients are followed until death.

PROJECTED ACCRUAL: A total of 37 patients will be accrued for this study over 2-3 years.
