Detailed Description:

The study will include patients with a variety of solid tumors (i.e. esophageal, colon, pancreatic, bronchial, gastric, hepatocellular, gall bladder, prostate and gynaecological carcinomas.)

The clinical benefit response - CBR, is an end point that provides a clinical measure for symptom improvement in patients. The key evaluation parameters for CBR will be assessment of pain, the ability to perform daily activities and weight change.
