N-cadherin, a protein involved in blood vessel cell binding, is increased as cancer progresses, and is on the surface of many tumor cells. ADH-1 blocks N-cadherin. This study will test the safety and effects of the combination ADH-1 and carboplatin or ADH-1 and docetaxel or ADH-1 and capecitabine in subjects with specific incurable, solid tumors with a protein biomarker called N-cadherin.

Condition Intervention Phase
Neoplasms Drug: ADH -1 and carboplatin Drug: ADH -1 and docetaxel Drug: ADH -1 and capecitabine Phase 1

Study Type: Interventional
Study Design: Allocation: Non-Randomized
Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment
Masking: None (Open Label)
Primary Purpose: Treatment
Official Title: A Phase 1, Multicenter, Dose-Escalation Study to Investigate the Safety and Tolerability of ADH-1 in Combination With 1) Carboplatin or 2) Docetaxel or 3) Capecitabine in Subjects With N-Cadherin Positive, Advanced Solid Tumors (Adherex Protocol Number AHX-01-006)
