The purpose of this open-label, multi center, phase I study, was to determine the safety profile of PHA-793887 administered by intravenous infusion to patients with advanced/metastatic solid tumors. This was a dose-finding study to determine the maximum tolerated dose and the dose of PHA-793887 that can be safely used in phase II investigations.

Condition Intervention Phase
Advanced/Metastatic Solid Tumors
Drug: PHA-793887
Phase 1

Study Type: Interventional
Study Design: Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment
Masking: Open Label
Primary Purpose: Treatment
Official Title: A Phase I Dose-Escalation Study of PHA-793887 Administered as a 1-hour IV Infusion on Days 1, 8 and 15 in a 4-Week Cycle in Patients With Advanced/Metastatic Solid Tumors

Further study details as provided by Nerviano Medical Sciences:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Determination of Dose Limiting Toxicities and Maximum Tolerated Dose [ Time Frame: First cycle ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Assessment of Adverse Events (based on CTCAE version 3.0) [ Time Frame: All cycles ]
  • Evaluation of pharmacokinetics: plasma concentrations at different times after dosing and related assessment of conventional pharmacokinetic parameters. [ Time Frame: First 2 cycles ]
  • Evaluation of pharmacodynamics: biomarkers modulation in skin and tumor samples of consenting patients at baseline and post-treatment. [ Time Frame: First cycle ]

Enrollment: 19
Study Start Date: November 2006
Study Completion Date: February 2008
Primary Completion Date: February 2008 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: Dose-Escalation Drug: PHA-793887
Escalating doses of PHA-793887 administered weekly by IV infusion for 3 consecutive weeks in 4-week cycles.
