Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Maximum Tolerated Dose (MTD) of a single dose of intravenous recombinant human tumor necrosis factor-α plus liposomal doxorubicin [ Time Frame: Up to 22 days ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
    MTD is the dose level below the one that produces 2 or more Dose-Limiting Toxicities

  • Dose Limiting Toxicity (DLT) of a single dose of intravenous recombinant human tumor necrosis factor-α plus liposomal doxorubicin [ Time Frame: up to 22 days ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]

    Toxicity Criteria will be those listed in NCI Common Terminology Criteria for Adverse Events (CTCAE) version 4.0.

    Any grade 3 cytokine release syndrome/acute infusion reaction or allergic and toxicity Grade 3 and above will be considered a DLT except:

    • Grade 3 toxicities that recover to grade 1 or less within 48 hours after standard supportive treatment.
    • Grade 4 neutropenia that recovers within 14 days.
    • Grade 4 thrombocytopenia that recovers within 14 days.
    • Grade 4 anemia that recovers within 14 days.


Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Overall tumor response using the international criteria proposed by the Response Evaluation Criteria in Solid Tumors (RECIST v1.1) [ Time Frame: 4 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Caelyx/doxorubicin plasma levels [ Time Frame: 0, 24, 48 and 192 hours post‐dose ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Caelyx/doxorubicin plasma levels will be measured at 0, 24, 48 and 192 hours post‐dose by fluorimetry (excitation at 470nm, emission 590 nm) after liposomes have been disrupted in 70% ethanol, 0.3 N HCl
