Phase 1

Study Type: Interventional
Study Design: Allocation: Non-Randomized
Endpoint Classification: Safety Study

Further study details as provided by Aprea AB:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Dose-Limiting Toxicity (DLT) is reached and HFD is defined accordingly, OR the dose, which is expected to result in maximum plasma concentration close to, but not exceeding 35 μg/ml in any single patient without showing signs of DLT. [ Time Frame: 21 days ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Determination of the toxicity and safety profile of APR-246 based on safety parameters from the entire study period. [ Time Frame: continuously during 21 days ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
  • Determination of the PK profile for up to 22 hours after the last APR-246 infusion. Cmax (maximal plasma concentration), AUC (area under the curve), t1/2 (half-life) and clearance will be determined. [ Time Frame: continuously, during 21 days ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]

Estimated Enrollment: 36
