Evaluation of irofulven (MGI-114) in the treatment of recurrent or persistent endometrial carcinoma: A phase II study of the Gynecologic Oncology Group
Investigational New Drugs (2004) 22:343-349.
Objective: This multi-center phase II trial was conducted by the Gynecologic Oncology Group to evaluate the activity and toxicity of irofulven in patients with previously treated adenocarcinoma of the endometrium. Methods: Eligible patients had documented recurrent or persistent endometrial carcinoma after receiving definitive locoregional therapy, and were required to have measurable disease, performance status of 0-2, and adequate bone marrow, hepatic and renal functions prior to study entry. Patients were allowed one prior chemotherapy regimen. The initial dose of irofulven was 11 mg/m(2)/day for four days administered intravenously. Cycles were repeated every 28 days. Doses were escalated or reduced based on previous cycle toxicity. Results: Twenty-five patients were enrolled onto the trial. There was one (4%) confirmed complete response. Seven (28%) patients had stable disease, with a median duration of 10.4 (range: 4.4-21.6) months. Patients received a median of one (r! ange: 1-5) cycle of protocol treatment. There were three early treatment-related deaths due to renal failure and severe electrolyte disturbances. Two patients experienced grade 4 hematologic adverse effects. Conclusion: Irofulven administered at the dose and schedule used in this trial was minimally active and resulted in significant toxicity.
