Anti-tubulin couplets have activity in hormone-resistant prostate cancer. This study was designed to define the dose-limiting toxicity (DLT) and recommended phase II dose (RPTD) of the unique triplet combination of paclitaxel, estramustine phosphate (EMP) and vinorelbine (Pacl-E-Vin). Patients with advanced malignancies who had failed standard therapy, ECOG(More)
Our objective was to evaluate the role of amifostine as a cytoprotector in patients with solid tumors receiving the myelosuppressive regimen of gemcitabine/cisplatin combination. Patients with advanced solid tumors were randomized to gemcitabine-amifostine-cisplatin (GAP) or gemcitabine-cisplatin (GP) in Cycle 1 (C1) and then were crossed over to the other(More)
This study's objectives were to determine the maximum tolerated dose (MTD) of 9-aminocamptothecin (9-AC), given as a prolonged continuous infusion (CI) for 7-21 days, when formulated in dimethylacetamide/polyethylene glycol 400 (DMA) and then later as a colloidal dispersion (CD), and to determine the steady-state pharmacokinetics of 9-AC. Patients with(More)
