MLN2704 in Subjects With Metastatic Androgen-Independent Prostate Cancer

This study has been completed.
Information provided by:
Millennium Pharmaceuticals, Inc. Identifier:
First received: October 8, 2003
Last updated: July 12, 2007
Last verified: July 2007
The purpose of the study is to determine the highest dose of MLN2704 that can be given multiple times safely to patients with prostate cancer, and to identify any side effects associated with taking the drug. This study will also evaluate how MLN2704 is taken up, broken down and eliminated by the body.
