Safety of TKI258 in Advanced/Metastatic Melanoma Subjects
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.
This study is an open-label, dose-escalating study to delineate the safety, pharmacokinetics (PK), and pharmacodynamics (PD) of TKI258. Pharmacokinetics and pharmacodynamics will be performed on all subjects. The eligible subject population consists of subjects who have been diagnosed with locally advanced or metastatic melanoma that is refractory to standard therapy or for which no curative standard therapy exists.
