  • ZK219477 in Patients With Breast Cancer and Brain Metastases
  • The purpose of this research study is to determine the effects (good and bad) of ZK219477 on participants and their cancer. ZK219477 is a chemotherapy drug that is thought to work by interfering with the ability of cancer cells to grow and divide. It is a part of a group of drugs called "epothilones" which appear to cause shrinkage of cancer in some patients with breast cancer. It is generally difficult for chemotherapy to enter the brain. However, it is believed that ZK219477 crosses into the brain. We are also studying whether an investigational MRI scan procedure may eventually help to predict which patients will benefit from ZK219477.

  • Treatment of Recurrent Primary or Secondary Central Nervous System (CNS) Lymphoma With ALIMTA (Pemetrexed)
  • The purpose of this research study is to determine the safety of the study drug pemetrexed, and the highest dose of this drug that can be given to people safely. Another goal of this research study is to gain information about how the body handles pemetrexed and how pemetrexed may work to treat the participant's lymphoma in the nervous system. Pemetrexed (also known as Alimta) has been approved by the FDA for the treatment of some lung cancers and has been shown to be effective in laboratory studies. Information from these studies suggests that pemetrexed may help to treat patients with either primary or secondary central nervous system lymphoma.
