A Phase I/II Clinical Trial Assessing Safety and Efficacy of BZL101 for Metastatic Breast Cancer
The safety and scientific validity of this study is the responsibility of the study sponsor and investigators. Listing a study does not mean it has been evaluated by the U.S. Federal Government.
Read our disclaimer for details.
BZL 101 is an aqueous extract from herba Scutellaria Barbata D. Don of the Lamiaceae family. Preclinical studies suggest that this herb has antitumor activity for breast cancer and preliminary clinical data suggest that it is tolerable in patients with metastatic breast cancer. The overall goals of this Phase I/II trial are to assess the toxicity, maximum tolerated dose, safety and preliminary efficacy of BZL101 for the treatment of advanced metastatic breast cancer.
