This study is a phase I dose escalation, multi-center, open-label study of HSP990 administered orally once weekly in adult Japanese and Korea patients with advanced solid malignancies.

Condition Intervention Phase
Advanced Solid Tumors Drug: HSP990 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 Dose Escalation, Multi-center, Open-label Study of HSP990 Administered Orally Once Weekly in Adult Japanese and Korea Patients With Advanced Solid Malignancies

Further study details as provided by Novartis ( Novartis Pharmaceuticals ):

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • establish maximum tolerated dose (MTD) [ Time Frame: 2.5 years ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Safety by measuring occurrence of dose limiting toxicity (DLT) and other adverse events [ Time Frame: 2.5 years ]
  • Efficacy by collecting data on response (complete response [CR], partial response [PR]) and stable disease (SD) [ Time Frame: 2.5 years ]
  • Establishment of a pharmacokinetic profile by collecting information on parameters including but not limited to Cmax, Tmax, T1/2 and AUC in plasma samples [ Time Frame: 2.5 years ]
  • Measurement of biomarkers for HSP90 pathway in blood and tissue [ Time Frame: 2.5 years ]
