Further study details as provided by Bayer:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Characterize safety, tolerability + pharmacokinetics, to determine the maximum tolerated dose of BAY80-6946 administered 1x weekly for 3 weeks, every 4weeks, as a 1h-intravenous infusion. Evaluate biomarkers that may be predictive of tumor response. [ Time Frame: 2 years ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Determine the effects of BAY80-6946 on blood glucose and insulin, and its safety in patients with type I or II diabetes. [ Time Frame: 2 years ]
  • Evaluate for early signs of efficacy in expansion cohorts [ Time Frame: 2 years ]

Enrollment: 57
Study Start Date: November 2009
Study Completion Date: February 2016
Primary Completion Date: February 2016 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: Copanlisib Drug: Copanlisib (BAY80-6946)
BAY80-6946 given IV over 1 hour every week for three weeks with a one week break until progression or unacceptable toxicities develop.
