AstraZeneca Identifier:
First received: July 16, 2007
Last updated: July 26, 2011
Last verified: July 2011
A multicentre, 2-part study to assess the safety and tolerability of once daily oral doses of AZD2171 when administered with various anticancer regimens (part A) and to confirm the tolerability of its combination with FOLFOX (part B).

Condition Intervention Phase
Advanced Solid Tumor Drug: AZD2171 Drug: FOLFOX Drug: Pemetrexed Drug: Irinotecan (administered with & without Cetuximab) Drug: Docetaxel Phase 1

Study Type: Interventional
Study Design: Allocation: Non-Randomized
Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment
Masking: Open Label
Primary Purpose: Treatment
Official Title: A Phase 1, Open Label Study to Assess the Safety, Tolerability and Pharmacokinetics of AZD2171 and Selected Chemotherapy Regimens When Given in Combination to Patients With Advanced Solid Tumors

Further study details as provided by AstraZeneca:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Determine the safety and tolerability of once daily oral doses of AZD2171 when given in combination with one of these anticancer regimens; FOLFOX, Pemetrexed, Irinotecan, Docetaxel [ Time Frame: After 5 weeks of treatment ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Examine the PK interaction of AZD2171 with one of the 4 different chemotherapeutic regimens. Make a preliminary evaluation of clinical response as measured by objective response rate. [ Time Frame: Assessed at each visit ]
