This is an open-label, multicenter pilot study in patients with advanced solid tumors.

The primary objective of this study is to compare progression-free survival using a treatment regimen selected by molecular profiling with progression-free survival for the most recent regimen the patient has progressed on.

To be eligible, patients must have received at least two lines of prior chemotherapeutic, hormonal or biological regimens for advanced disease, have measurable or evaluable, refractory disease and have clear documentation of the time between treatment start and documented progression on the last treatment prior to study entry. Eligible patients must undergo or have available a tumor biopsy for molecular profiling within 2 months of IHC/FISH and/or DNA microarray analysis.

Condition Intervention Phase
Refractory Cancer
Other: Treatment based on Molecular Profiling
Early Phase 1

Study Type: Interventional
Study Design: Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment
Masking: Open Label
Primary Purpose: Treatment
Official Title: A Pilot Study Utilizing Molecular Profiling of Patients' Tumors to Find Potential Targets and Select Treatments for Their Refractory Cancers

Further study details as provided by Scottsdale Healthcare:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • To compare progression-free survival using a treatment regimen selected by molecular profiling with progression-free survival for the most recent regimen the patient has progressed on. [ Time Frame: Every 8 weeks disease assessments are performed ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • To determine the frequency with which molecular profiling of a patient's tumor by IHC/FISH and/or microarray analysis yields a target against which there is a commercially available, approved therapeutic regimen. [ Time Frame: Time of Profiling- Baseline ]
  • To determine the response rate (according to RECIST or disease-specific response criteria) and the percent of patients with non-progression at 4 months in patients with solid tumors whose therapy is selected by molecular profiling. [ Time Frame: 4 months ]

Enrollment: 86
Study Start Date: September 2006
Estimated Study Completion Date: March 2009
Primary Completion Date: March 2009 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Intervention Details:
    Other: Treatment based on Molecular Profiling
    Treatment with commercially available treatments (per package insert instructions)
