  Purpose

This is a global, Phase 2, open label, dose selection, proof-of-concept study to assess progression free survival in subjects with metastatic melanoma.

80+ subjects at 29 sites in the U.S., U.K., Germany and Australia will be randomized into one of two dose groups: 2 mg/kg, 4 mg/kg. Weekly treatment will continue until disease progression.

Subjects must have measurable disease by CT Scan or MRI and must have completed at least one prior round of chemotherapy.

Subjects will be assessed for Efficacy, PK/PD, Overall survival, and Safety (Adverse Events/Adverse Events of Interest, Electrocardiograms (ECG's), clinical labs, physical exams/vital signs, tolerability).

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Progression Free Survival (PFS) rate based on RECIST [ Time Frame: after 80 subjects complete 24 weeks of treatment ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Evaluate the rate of PFS at 24 weeks for two dose levels of MORAb-004 based on RECIST (radiographic measure of tumors)


Enrollment: 80
Study Start Date: April 2011
Study Completion Date: January 2014
Primary Completion Date: March 2013 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: MORAb-004, 2 mg/kg
Biologic (monoclonal antibody)
Biological: MORAb-004 (monoclonal antibody)
Subjects will receive one cycle of treatment with MORAb-004, administered intravenously, on Days 1, 8, 15, and 22 (4 administrations per cycle). Additional cycles will continue without interruption until disease progression occurs.

Detailed Description:

MORAb-004 is a monoclonal antibody directed against endosialin, a cell surface glycoprotein, which is expressed on cells involved in tumor vasculature. Studies have found endosialin to play a key role in tumor growth and neovessel formation in numerous cancer types including melanoma. Preclinical pharmacological studies have shown that MORAb-004 is a potentially useful anti-cancer agent. This clinical trial is being performed to determine the efficacy of MORAb-004 at two dose levels in subjects with metastatic melanoma, as well as to establish serum pharmacokinetics and pharmacodynamics of the antibody.
