This trial is designed to study the drug-drug interaction between ASA404 and fluvoxamine, an inhibitor of its metabolic pathway (CYP1A2). The study will consist of two phases. The purpose of the Core Phase is to study the drug drug interaction between fluvoxamine and ASA404. The purpose of the Extension Phase is to provide continued treatment for those patients that have not progressed during the Core Phase and to collect safety data on ASA404 when given in combination with paclitaxel, docetaxel or the paclitaxel plus carboplatin chemotherapy regimen.
||Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment
Masking: Open Label
Primary Purpose: Treatment
||A Multi-center, Open-label, Drug-drug Interaction Study to Assess the Effects of Fluvoxamine on the Pharmacokinetics of ASA404 in Adult Patients With Solid Tumor Malignancies
Primary Outcome Measures:
- evaluate the effect of administration of fluvoxamine, a CYP1A2 inhibitor, after 2-cycles of ASA404, on the pharmacokinetics of ASA404 [ Time Frame: approximately 2 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
Secondary Outcome Measures:
- evaluate the effect of administration of fluvoxamine on the safety profile (incidence of AEs or SAEs generated) of ASA404 [ Time Frame: 4 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
- assess the safety (incidence of AEs and SAEs) of ASA404 in combination with paclitaxel, doctaxel or the paclitaxel plus carboplatin chemotherapy regimen in patients with solid tumor malignancies [ Time Frame: 12 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

||September 2010 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Experimental: ASA404 + Fluvoxamine
ASA404 + Fluvoxamine (Core Phase), ASA404 + either paclitaxel or docetaxel or paclitaxel plus carboplain chemotherapy combination (Extension Phase)
