Further study details as provided by Eisai Inc.:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Dose-Escalation Component: To determine the MTD defined by dose-limiting toxicity (DLT) of E7080. Safety assessments based on adverse events, physical exams, and selected lab values. [ Time Frame: 4 weeks ]
  • Expansion Component: Time to progression. [ Time Frame: From day of registration to the day when progressive disease is first confirmed ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Dose-Escalation Component: To evaluate the anti-tumor effect of E7080 using Response Evaluation Criteria in Solid Tumors (RECIST). [ Time Frame: Every 8 weeks ]
  • Expansion Component: Progression-free survival. [ Time Frame: From day of registration to the day when progressive disease is first confirmed or death ]
  • Expansion Component: Objective response rate. [ Time Frame: Every 8 weeks ]
  • Expansion Component: Disease control rate. [ Time Frame: At 8 weeks and 16 weeks ]
  • Expansion Component: Overall survival. [ Time Frame: From day of registration to the day of death ]

Enrollment: 66
Study Start Date: July 2009
Study Completion Date: December 2014
Primary Completion Date: June 2014 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: 1 Drug: E7080
In the Dose-Escalation Component of the study, E7080 will be administered as continuous once-daily oral dosing. Dose-escalation will occur based on safety information obtained during Cycle 1. The recommended dose for the Expansion Component of the study will use the MTD in Cycle 1.
