Phase 2 Study of Inhaled Lipid Cisplatin in Pulmonary Recurrent Osteosarcoma

  • Study type:

    Interventional What is this?

    Describes the nature of a clinical study. Types include:

    • Observational study — observes people and measures outcomes without affecting results.
    • Interventional study (clinical trial) — studies new tests, treatments, drugs, surgical procedures or devices.
    • Medical records research — uses historical information collected from medical records of large groups of people to study how diseases progress and which treatments and surgeries work best.
  • Study phase:

    II What is this?

    During the early phases (phases 1 and 2), researchers assess safety, side effects, optimal dosages and risks/benefits. In the later phase (phase 3), researchers study whether the treatment works better than the current standard therapy. They also compare the safety of the new treatment with that of current treatments. Phase 3 trials include large numbers of people to make sure that the result is valid. There are also less common very early (phase 0) and later (phase 4) phases. Phase 0 trials are small trials that help researchers decide if a new agent should be tested in a phase 1 trial. Phase 4 trials look at long-term safety and effectiveness, after a new treatment has been approved and is on the market.

About this study

To establish whether treatment with Inhaled Lipid Cisplatin (ILC) is effective in delaying/preventing pulmonary relapse in osteosarcoma patients in complete surgical remission following one or two prior pulmonary relapses.

Participation eligibility

Participant eligibility includes age, gender, type and stage of disease, and previous treatments or health concerns. Guidelines differ from study to study, and identify who can or cannot participate. If you need assistance understanding the eligibility criteria, please contact the study team.

See eligibility criteria

Inclusion Criteria:

  1. History of osteosarcoma metastatic to the lung(s). (First or second pulmonary recurrence(s) removed by surgery, and previous second-line systemic chemotherapy is allowed).
  2. Patients must be macroscopically disease free following pulmonary metastectomy of a single or multiple lesions. Complete remission surgically (free of macroscopic disease) is required. Pleural disruption and/or microscopic positive margins are allowed.
  3. Age ≥13 years.
  4. Patients must have recovered sufficiently from all acute adverse effects of prior therapies, excluding alopecia.
  5. Patients must have an ECOG performance status of 0-2. (Lansky score of 50-100 if < 16 years old).
  6. Patients must have recovered sufficiently from surgery and have adequate airflow and pulmonary reserve. This decision should be at the investigator's discretion taking into consideration pre-surgery pulmonary function. (As a guideline: adequate airflow defined by a measured Forced Expiratory Volume (FEV1) not less than 50% of the predicted value and adequate pulmonary reserve as evidenced by a FEV1/FVC ratio of 65% or greater).
  7. Patients must have adequate renal function as defined by a serum creatinine of ≤ 1.5 mg/dl.
  8. Patients must have adequate liver function as defined by total bilirubin of ≤ 1.5 mg/dl and ALT or AST < 2.5 times the institution's upper normal limit.
  9. Patients must have adequate bone marrow function as defined by an absolute neutrophil count (ANC) of ≥ 1,000/mm3 and platelet count of ≥ 100,000/mm3.
  10. Signed informed consent including, where applicable, the consent of the patient's legal guardian.

Exclusion Criteria:

  1. Current extrapulmonary disease.
  2. Current macroscopic pulmonary lesions.
  3. Greater than 2 pulmonary recurrences.
  4. Greater than 4 weeks since thoracotomy rendering patient free of macroscopic disease.
  5. Females who are pregnant or breast-feeding.
  6. Concomitant disease or condition that could interfere with the conduct of the study, or that would, in the opinion of the investigator, pose an unacceptable risk to the patient in this study.
  7. Contraindication to or unwillingness to undergo multiple CT scans and chest X-rays.
  8. Unwillingness or inability to comply with the study protocol for any other reason.
  9. Participation in an investigational drug or device study or treatment with any anti-neoplastic agent within 14 days of the first day of dosing on this study
