This is a study to assess the safety and tolerability of SNS-314 in advanced solid tumors in humans.

Condition Intervention Phase
Advanced Solid Tumors Drug: SNS-314 Phase 1

Study Type: Interventional
Study Design: Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment
Masking: No masking
Primary Purpose: Treatment
Official Title: Phase 1 Open-Label Multicenter, Dose-Escalating, Clinical Study of the Safety, Tolerability, and Pharmacokinetic and Pharmacodynamic Profiles of SNS-314, a Novel Aurora Kinase Inhibitor, Administered to Patients With Advanced Solid Tumors

Further study details as provided by Sunesis Pharmaceuticals:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • To assess the safety and tolerability of SNS-314 [ Time Frame: 1 Year ]

Enrollment: 32
Study Start Date: August 2007
Study Completion Date: March 2009
Primary Completion Date: March 2009 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: Dose escalating cohorts of SNS-314
Sequential groups, starting at a dose of 30 mg/m2, will be escalated according to identification of dose limiting toxicities against various criteria. Doses escalated by doubling the dose until the first observation of clinically significant Grade 2 or greater toxicity related to SNS-314 injection. Results in dosing increments of 67%, 50%, 40%, 33%, and subsequently 25% based on modified Fibonacci schema.
Drug: SNS-314

Stage 1 - Escalating doses of SNS-314 Injection on days 1, 8 and 15

Stage 2 - Same as stage 1 except SNS-314 Injection is administered at the maximum tolerated dose established in stage 1

Detailed Description:
Other objectives of this study include measuring pharmacokinetics (how long the drug can be measured in the blood).

Ages Eligible for Study:   18 Years and older   (Adult, Senior)
Sexes Eligible for Study:   All
Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   No
