Boehringer Ingelheim Identifier:
First received: August 5, 2008

Last verified: August 2009

The primary objective of this trial is to determine the MTD of the combination of BIBW 2992/BIBF 1120 therapy administered concomitantly in a 28-day cycle schedule.

Secondary objectives are the collection of antitumor efficacy data, the determination of pharmacokinetic parameters of BIBF 1120 and BIBW 2992, and if data allow the determination of the pharmacokinetic influence of BIBW 2992 on BIBF 1120 and vice versa.

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • The primary endpoint of this trial is the safety of the combination of BIBW 2992/BIBF 1120 when administered concomitantly, and this is assessed by the dose limiting toxicity [ Time Frame: Until undue toxicity or progressive disease. ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Pharmacokinetics, Objective tumor response. [ Time Frame: Until undue toxicity or progressive disease. ]

Enrollment: 28
Study Start Date: January 2007
Primary Completion Date: August 2009 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)

  13. Treatment with other investigational drugs; chemotherapy, immunotherapy, radiotherapy or hormone therapy (including LHRH agonists, megestrol acetate, or other hormones taken for breast cancer or prostate cancer); participation in another clinical study within the past 4 weeks before start of therapy or concomitantly with this study. Treatment with bisphosphonates is allowed.
