Purpose:

RATIONALE: Chemoprevention uses drugs to try and prevent development of cancer. Fenretinide may be effective in treating cervical neoplasia and preventing cervical cancer. PURPOSE: Randomized double-blinded phase III trial to compare the effectiveness of fenretinide to placebo in treating patients with cervical neoplasia.


Study summary:

OBJECTIVES: I. Determine the efficacy of fenretinide (N-(4-hydroxyphenyl) retinamide; 4-HPR) at regressing cervical intraepithelial neoplasia (CIN). II. Document the qualitative and quantitative toxicity of 4-HPR in women with CIN. OUTLINE: This is a double blinded study. Patients are randomized to receive either fenretinide or placebo. Patients are administered fenretinide or a placebo by mouth (PO) daily for 6 months with 3 days of rest every month. Patients undergo colposcopy, colpophotography, and Pap smears at 3, 6, 9, and 12 months. Patients undergo cervical biopsy at 6 and 12 months to assess changes. PROJECTED ACCRUAL: 84-100 patients will be accrued.


Criteria:

DISEASE CHARACTERISTICS: Histologically diagnosed new or recurrent cervical intraepithelial neoplasia grade 2-3 lesion involving at least one quadrant of the transformation zone of the cervix PATIENT CHARACTERISTICS: Age: 18 and over Performance status: Zubrod 0-2 Life expectancy: At least 12 months Hematopoietic: Absolute granulocyte count greater than 1500/mm3 Platelet count greater than 100,000/mm3 Hepatic: Bilirubin no greater than 1.5 mg/dL Renal: Creatinine no greater than 1.5 mg/dL Other: Fertile patients must use effective contraception Fasting triglyceride less than 2 times normal No prior malignancy Must consent to colposcopy and cervical biopsy PRIOR CONCURRENT THERAPY: Not specified
