Condition prostate cancer
Treatments ct-2584, chemotherapy
Phase phase 2
Sponsor CTI BioPharma
Start date December 1998
Trial size 80 participants
Trial identifier NCT00004026, CDR0000067257, CPMC-IRB-8781, CTI-1038


RATIONALE: Drugs used in chemotherapy use different ways to stop tumor cells from dividing so they stop growing or die. CT-2584 may stop the growth of prostate cancer by stopping blood flow to the tumor.

PURPOSE: Randomized phase II trial to study the effectiveness of CT-2584 in treating patients who have metastatic prostate cancer that has not responded to previous therapy.

Additional Information

Official title A Phase II Study of CT-2584 Mesylate in Patients With Hormone Refractory Prostate Cancer
Description OBJECTIVES: I. Compare the efficacy, safety, and pharmacokinetics of 2 different treatment schedules of CT-2584 in patients with hormone refractory, metastatic adenocarcinoma of the prostate. OUTLINE: This is a randomized, multicenter study. Patients are randomized to 1 of 2 treatment arms: Arm I: Patients receive CT-2584 IV over 6 hours daily for 3 days every 3 weeks. Arm II: Patients receive CT-2584 IV over 6 hours once every 7 days for 3 weeks. Courses repeat every 3 weeks in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity. PROJECTED ACCRUAL: Approximately 80 patients will be accrued for this study.
