Brief Summary:
The purpose of the study is to assess the safety, tolerability and pharmacokinetics of AZD8055 and determine the maximum tolerated dose to take into phase II trials.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Solid Tumors Drug: AZD8055 Phase 1

Study Type : Interventional  (Clinical Trial)
Actual Enrollment : 64 participants
Allocation: Non-Randomized
Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment
Masking: None (Open Label)
Primary Purpose: Treatment
Official Title: A Phase I/II, Open-Label, Multi-center Study to Assess the Safety, Tolerability, Pharmacokinetics and Preliminary Efficacy of the Tor Kinase Inhibitor AZD8055 Administered Orally to Patients With Advanced Solid Tumours.
Study Start Date : July 2008
Primary Completion Date : November 2010
Study Completion Date : November 2010

Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: 1
The study will start with AZD8055 formulated in a liquid solution prior to the tablet formulation becoming available. The tablet formulation will be introduced in Part A at the beginning of a new cohort at an appropriate dose, no higher than the dose of the liquid formulation in the last completed evaluated cohort. Oral solution or tablet, single dose on Day 1 Part A, twice daily ascending dosing from day 8 onwards (until maximum tolerated dose is reached), cycles of 28 days treatment.
Drug: AZD8055
Oral solution or tablet, single dose on Day 1 Part A, twice daily ascending dosing from day 8 onwards (until maximum tolerated dose is reached), cycles of 28 days treatment.

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Safety and tolerability of AZD8055 [ Time Frame: Assessed at all visits ]

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. To identify early signals of anti-tumour activity [ Time Frame: Visits 1, 5, and 9 and 11 ]
  2. To identify early signals of anti-tumor activity [ Time Frame: Visits 1, 5, 9 and 13 ]
