A Dose-Finding and Exploratory Study of RO5323441 in Combination With Sorafenib in Patients With Hepatocellular Carcinoma
Exploratory Open Label Dose-escalation Phase Ib Study to Evaluate Safety, Pharmacokinetics and Therapeutic Activity of RO5323441, Administered Intravenously, in Combination With Sorafenib (Nexavar®), in Patients With Advanced or Metastatic and/or Unresectable Hepatocellular Carcinoma

This open-label study will assess the safety, efficacy and pharmacokinetics of R O5323441 in combination with sorafenib in patients with advanced or metastatic h epatocellular carcinoma previously untreated with systemic therapy. In the dose- finding Part I, cohorts of patients will receive escalating doses of RO5323441 i ntravenously (iv) every 2 weeks in combination with sorafenib 400 mg orally twic e daily. In the exploratory Part II, patients will be randomized to receive eith er the previously established dose of RO5323441 iv every 2 weeks plus continuous oral sorafenib or sorafenib alone. Anticipated time on study treatment is until disease progression or unacceptable toxicity occurs. For patients in the sorafe nib arm with disease progression crossover to combination treatment with RO53234 41 will be allowed.
