Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Objective Response Rate (complete response and partial response) as defined by modified RECIST

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Duration of response
  • Progression Free Survival
  • Changes in tumor markers
  • overall survival time
  • time to response
  • Tumour Related Symptoms (medullary thyroid cancer arm)
  • AMG 706 pharmacokinetic profile
  • patient reported outcome (EQ-5D)
  • Safety Endpoint: Incidence of treatment-emergent adverse events (including all, serious, treatment-related, and each by maximum severity).
  • Pharmacokinetic Enpoint: AMG 706 pharmacokinetic parameters (Cmax, t1/2, AUC0-24,C24)
