This study has suspended participant recruitment.
Information provided by (Responsible Party):

First received: November 1, 1999
Last updated: July 10, 2012
Last verified: July 2012

RATIONALE: Drugs used in chemotherapy use different ways to stop tumor cells from dividing so they stop growing or die.

PURPOSE: Phase I trial to study the effectiveness of BIBX 1382 in treating patients who have solid tumors.

Condition Intervention Phase
Unspecified Adult Solid Tumor, Protocol Specific Drug: BIBX 1382 Phase 1

Study Type: Interventional
Study Design: Primary Purpose: Treatment
Official Title: Phase I and Pharmacokinetics Study to Determine the Safety of BIBX 1382 in Patients With a Solid Tumor on a Continuous Daily Oral Administration Schedule and After Single Oral and Intravenous Doses

Further study details as provided by European Organisation for Research and Treatment of Cancer - EORTC:

Estimated Enrollment: 80
Study Start Date: February 1999
Detailed Description:

OBJECTIVES: I. Determine the maximum tolerated dose of oral BIBX 1382 in patients with solid tumors. II. Determine qualitative and quantitative toxicities of oral BIBX 1382 in these patients. III. Determine predictability, duration, intensity, onset, reversibility, and dose relationship of the toxicities of oral BIBX 1382 in these patients. IV. Determine safe and optimal doses of oral BIBX 1382 for a Phase II study. V. Assess the pharmacokinetics of oral BIBX 1382 in these patients. VI. Document any antitumor activity in these patients treated with oral BIBX 1382.

OUTLINE: This is a dose escalation study. Patients receive BIBX 1382 IV over 1 hour followed 7 days later by oral BIBX 1382. Beginning 3 days later, patients receive oral BIBX 1382 daily for 28 days. Courses of daily oral BIBX 1382 repeat every 28 days in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity. Cohorts of 3-6 patients receive escalating doses of oral BIBX 1382. The maximum tolerated dose (MTD) is defined as the dose at which dose limiting toxicity occurs in at least 2 of 6 patients. Patients are followed for up to 4 weeks.

PROJECTED ACCRUAL: A total of 40-80 patients will be accrued for this study over 18 months.
