Trial Description

Summary

RATIONALE: Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as trabectedin, work in different ways to stop the growth of tumor cells, either by killing the cells or by stopping them from dividing.

PURPOSE: This phase II trial is studying how well trabectedin works in treating patients with advanced, persistent, or recurrent leiomyosarcoma of the uterus.

Further Study Information

OBJECTIVES:

  • Determine the antitumor activity of trabectedin, as measured by frequency and duration of objective response, in patients with advanced, persistent, or recurrent uterine leiomyosarcoma.
  • Determine the nature and degree of toxicity of this drug in these patients.

OUTLINE: This is a nonrandomized, multicenter study.

Patients receive trabectedin IV continuously over 24 hours on day 1. Courses repeat every 3 weeks in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity. Patients who achieve a confirmed complete response may receive at least 2 additional courses.

After completion of study treatment, patients are followed every 3 months.

PROJECTED ACCRUAL: A total of 43 patients will be accrued for this study.

Eligibility Criteria

DISEASE CHARACTERISTICS:

  • Histologically confirmed uterine leiomyosarcoma
  • Histological confirmation of original primary tumor required
  • Advanced, persistent, or recurrent disease
  • Documented disease progression
  • Measurable disease, defined as ≥ 1 unidimensionally measurable lesion ≥ 20 mm by conventional techniques, including palpation, plain x-ray, CT scan, and MRI OR ≥ 10 mm by spiral CT scan
  • At least 1 target lesion
  • Tumors within a previously irradiated field are considered nontarget lesions unless progression is documented or a biopsy is obtained to confirm persistence at least 90 days following completion of radiotherapy
  • Ineligible for a higher priority GOG protocol (i.e., any active phase III GOG protocol for the same patient population)

PATIENT CHARACTERISTICS:

  • GOG performance status 0-2
  • Not pregnant or nursing
  • Negative pregnancy test
  • Fertile patients must use effective contraception
  • Platelet count ≥ 100,000/mm³
  • Absolute neutrophil count ≥ 1,500/mm³
  • Hemoglobin > 9.0 g/dL
  • Creatinine ≤ 1.5 times upper limit of normal (ULN)
  • Bilirubin normal
  • AST ≤ 2.5 times ULN
  • Alkaline phosphatase ≤ 1.5 times ULN
  • CPK ≤ ULN
  • No active infection requiring antibiotics (except for patients with uncomplicated UTI)
  • No neuropathy (sensory or motor) > grade 1
  • No other invasive malignancy within the past 5 years except for nonmelanoma skin cancer
  • No known active liver disease or hepatitis
  • Must be willing/able to have a central venous catheter

PRIOR CONCURRENT THERAPY:

  • See Disease Characteristics
  • Recovered from prior surgery, radiotherapy, or other therapy
  • No prior cancer treatment that would preclude study therapy
  • No prior cytotoxic chemotherapy or biologic therapy for uterine sarcoma
  • No prior chemotherapy for any abdominal or pelvic tumor within the past 5 years
  • Prior adjuvant chemotherapy for localized breast cancer is allowed provided it was completed more than 3 years ago and there is no evidence of recurrent or metastatic disease
  • No prior trabectedin
  • No prior radiotherapy within the past 5 years to any portion of the abdominal cavity or pelvis other than for treatment of uterine sarcoma
  • Prior radiotherapy for localized cancer of the breast, head and neck or skin is allowed, provided that it was completed more than 3 years ago and there is no evidence of recurrent or metastatic disease
  • At least 1 week since prior hormonal therapy for the malignancy (continuation of hormone replacement therapy is permitted)
  • No concurrent amifostine or other protective agents
