Brief Summary:
A phase I study is conducted to determine the maximum tolerated dose (MTD), dose limiting toxicity (DLT), safety and pharmacokinetics (PK) profile of a single agent CKD-516 injection on a weekly schedule in patients with advanced solid cancers failed to standard therapy. The usefulness of the this regimen is evaluated by response rate, progression free survival and vascular disruption effect by Dynamic Contrast-Enhanced MRI (DCE-MRI).

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Unspecified Adult Solid Tumor, Protocol Specific Drug: CKD-516 inj Phase 1

Detailed Description:


  • I. Determine the maximum tolerated dose of CKD-516 administered at single doses every 21 days in patients with advanced solid tumors.
  • II. Determine both the toxicity and dose limiting toxicity of this regimen in these patients.
  • III. Determine the plasma and urine pharmacokinetics of CKD-516.
  • IV. Gather preliminary data regarding possible antitumor effects in those patients with measurable diseae. Assess the effects of CKD-516 on tumor blood flow using DCE-MRI scanning techniques, and establish the dose at which these effects occur.

OUTLINE: This is an open label, dose escalation study. Patients receive CKD-516 IV over 30 minutes on day 1, 8 every 3 weeks in the absence of unacceptable toxicity or disease progression. Cohorts of 3~6 patients receive escalating doses of CKD-516 until the maximum tolerated dose(MTD) is determined. The MTD is defined as the dose preceding that at which 2 of 3 or 2 of 6 patients experience dose limiting toxicity.

Study Type : Interventional  (Clinical Trial)
Estimated Enrollment : 30 participants

Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: CKD-516 inj Drug: CKD-516 inj
5.0 mg/2ml; 1.0, 2.0, 3.3, 5, 7, 9 ~ mg/m2; Day 1, Day 8 every 3 weeks
Other Name: CKD-516

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. MTD, Maximum Tolerated Dose [ Time Frame: 1st cycle ]
  2. PK parameters of CKD-516 and its metabolite, S516, when CKD-516 administered on Days 1 and 8 of a 21-day cycle [ Time Frame: 1st cycle ]
  3. Dose-limiting Toxicity [ Time Frame: 1st cycle ]

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. ORR%, Objective response rate [ Time Frame: every 2 cycle ]
  2. PFS, Progression Free Survival [ Time Frame: 30 days before or after last patient out ]
  3. Vascular disruption effect(with DCE-MRI) [ Time Frame: 24hr after 1st cycle day 1 treatment ]
