Purpose:

RATIONALE: Drugs used in chemotherapy use different ways to stop tumor cells from dividing so they stop growing or die. PURPOSE: Phase I/II trial to study the effectiveness of annamycin liposomal in treating patients who have locally advanced or metastatic breast cancer that has not responded to previous chemotherapy.


Study summary:

OBJECTIVES: I. Determine the observed anti-tumor activity of annamycin liposomal in patients with anthracycline-resistant locally advanced or metastatic breast cancer. II. Determine the qualitative and quantitative toxicity and reversibility of toxicity of this regimen in these patients. III. Determine the clinical pharmacology of this regimen in these patients. IV. Determine the rationale for the dose and chosen schedule of this regimen in these patients. OUTLINE: Patients receive annamycin liposomal IV over 60 minutes on day 1. Treatment continues every 3 weeks for at least 2 courses in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity. PROJECTED ACCRUAL: A total of 14-30 patients will be accrued for this study within 7-30 months.


Criteria:

DISEASE CHARACTERISTICS: Diagnosis of locally advanced or metastatic breast cancer High likelihood of anthracycline resistance due to prior anthracycline exposure in the adjuvant or metastatic setting Prior anthraquinone (e.g., mitoxantrone) insufficient Prior cumulative anthracycline dose limited to doxorubicin-equivalent 350 mg/m2 by IV bolus or 450 mg/m2 by prolonged (at least 48 hours) infusion Measurable or evaluable disease Brain metastases treated by prior surgery and/or radiotherapy allowed if neurologic status stable 2 weeks after discontinuation of dexamethasone Hormone receptor status: Not specified PATIENT CHARACTERISTICS: Age: 18 and over Sex: Male or female Menopausal status: Not specified Performance status: Zubrod 0-2 Life expectancy: At least 12 weeks Hematopoietic: Absolute granulocyte count greater than 1,500/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 Cardiovascular: No history of heart failure Ejection fraction at least 55% by 2-dimensional echocardiogram Other: Not pregnant or nursing Negative pregnancy test Fertile patients must use effective contraception Other prior malignancy allowed if curatively treated and there is clear diagnosis of metastatic breast cancer requiring treatment PRIOR CONCURRENT THERAPY: Biologic therapy: No concurrent prophylactic filgrastim (G-CSF) Chemotherapy: See Disease Characteristics At least 3 weeks since prior chemotherapy (6 weeks for mitomycin or nitrosourea) and recovered Endocrine therapy: See Disease Characteristics Radiotherapy: See Disease Characteristics At least 3 weeks since prior radiotherapy and recovered Surgery: See Disease Characteristics
