  • Pharmacokinetics and Pharmacodynamics [ Time Frame: At baseline and steady state during cycle 1 ]

Enrollment: 27
Study Start Date: April 2007
Study Completion Date: January 2011
Primary Completion Date: August 2010 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: I
Intravenous KW-2478 (ascending dose cohorts)
Drug: KW-2478
Daily intravenous KW-2478 for 5 days in 14-day cycles, ascending dose cohorts

Detailed Description:
This is a Phase I, open-label, dose-escalation study of KW-2478 in patients with relapsed/refractory multiple myeloma, chronic lymphocytic leukaemia or B-cell Non-Hodgkin's lymphoma who have no established therapeutic alternatives. Up to 42 patients will be enrolled at up to six investigational sites over a period of approximately 12 months until an MTD is reached. An additional 12 patients may be enrolled at the MTD in an expanded cohort of one or more of the eligible conditions.
