Additional Information

Official title Phase II Study of TLC D-99 for Hepatobiliary Carcinomas
Description OBJECTIVES: I. Determine the response rate and toxicity of doxorubicin HCl liposome in patients with carcinomas of the liver and bile ducts. OUTLINE: Patients receive doxorubicin HCl liposome IV over 15 minutes every 21 days. Filgrastim (G-CSF) is administered subcutaneously starting on day 2 and continuing for 10-14 days. Disease is restaged after every 3 courses. Treatment continues in the absence of unacceptable toxicity or disease progression. Patients are followed every 3 months for the first year, and then every 6 months thereafter. PROJECTED ACCRUAL: There will be 17-26 evaluable patients accrued into this study.
