This study will investigate the safety and tolerability of combination therapy with MK-2206 and AZD6244 and determine the maximum tolerated dose (MTD) and recommended Phase 2 dose (RPTD) for this drug combination in the treatment of participants with locally advanced or metastatic solid tumors. Preliminary efficacy data will also be collected.

Condition Intervention Phase
Locally Advanced or Metastatic Solid Tumors Drug: MK-2206 plus AZD6244 Phase 1

Study Type: Interventional
Study Design: Allocation: Non-Randomized
Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment
Masking: None (Open Label)
Primary Purpose: Treatment
Official Title: A Phase I Study of Oral MK-2206 in Combination With Oral AZD6244 in Patients With Locally Advanced or Metastatic Solid Tumors

Further study details as provided by Merck Sharp & Dohme Corp.:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Incidence of dose limiting toxicities (DLTs) [ Time Frame: 28 days ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Number of participants with a tumor response according to Response Evaluation Criteria in Solid Tumors (RECIST) [ Time Frame: Baseline and after every 8 weeks of treatment until documentation of objective response or disease progression ]

Enrollment: 63
