  • Study Participants

Patients with recurrent or metastatic solid tumors receive oral vinorelbine at one of three different doses (30 or 40 or 50 mg). Vinorelbine will be administered orally at a metronomic schedule three times a week: on Monday, Wednesday and Friday.
The purpose of this study is to define the biologically optimal dose of vinorelbine when administered at a metronomic dosing schema. [Metronomic chemotherapy refers to the close, regular administration of minimally toxic doses of cytotoxic drugs, with minimal or no drug-free breaks, over prolonged periods]. Patients with recurrent or metastatic solid tumors are randomly assigned one of three different doses of oral vinorelbine (30 or 40 or 50 mg). Treatment is administered three times a week (Monday, Wednesday and Friday) continuously until disease progression or unacceptable toxicity or to a maximum of 24 months.

congestive heart failure,
cerebrovascular accident or transient ischemic attack, or pulmonary embolism,
cardiac dysrhythmias of grade >/= 2,
