UCN-01 in Treating Patients With Advanced or Metastatic Kidney Cancer
This trial is active, not recruiting.
|Sponsor||University of California, San Francisco|
|Collaborator||National Cancer Institute (NCI)|
|Start date||December 2002|
|Trial identifier||NCT00030888, CDR0000069208, NCI-5522, UCSF-NCI-5522|
RATIONALE: Drugs used in chemotherapy use different ways to stop tumor cells from dividing so they stop growing or die.
PURPOSE: Phase II trial to study the effectiveness of UCN-01 in treating patients who have unresectable stage III or stage IV kidney cancer.
|United States||No locations recruiting|

|Official title||A Phase 2 Study Of UCN-01 In Advanced Renal Cell Carcinoma|
|Description||OBJECTIVES: - Determine the efficacy of UCN-01, in terms of time to objective progression, in patients with stage IV or unresectable stage III renal cell carcinoma. - Determine the objective response rate in patients treated with this drug. OUTLINE: Patients receive UCN-01 IV over 3 hours on day 1. Courses repeat every 3 weeks in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity. PROJECTED ACCRUAL: A total of 21-61 patients will be accrued for this study within 15 months.|
