Exisulind in Preventing Polyps in Patients With Familial Adenomatous Polyposis
study id #: NCT00026468
condition: Colorectal Cancer, Small Intestine Cancer
RATIONALE: Exisulind may be effective in preventing the development and growth of polyps in patients who have familial adenomatous polyposis.
PURPOSE: Randomized phase II/III trial to determine the effectiveness of exisulind in preventing the development and growth of polyps in patients who have familial adenomatous polyposis.
intervention: Drug: exisulind
start date: July 1999
estimated completion: July 1999
last updated: July 24, 2013
phase of development: Phase 2, Phase 3
Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment
Primary Purpose: Prevention
- Determine the ability of exisulind to inhibit growth and development of duodenal adenomas in patients with familial adenomatous polyposis.
- Determine the effect on apoptosis in polyp vs mucosal tissue in these patients when treated with this drug.
OUTLINE: This is a randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled study. Patients are randomized to one of two treatment arms.
- Arm I: Patients receive oral exisulind 4 times daily.
- Arm II: Patients receive oral placebo 4 times daily. Treatment continues for 1 year.
PROJECTED ACCRUAL: A total of 100 patients (50 per treatment arm) will be accrued for this study.
