This is a Phase I, open label, dose-escalation study of MetMAb administered by intravenous (IV) infusion in patients with advanced solid malignancies that are refractory to or for which there is no standard of care. The study consists of a dose-escalation stage, an expansion stage testing MetMAb at the recommended Phase II dose (RP2D), and a dose-escalation stage testing the combination of MetMAb, at two different doses with bevacizumab at a recommended dose.

Further study details as provided by Genentech, Inc.:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Safety and tolerability of MetMAb alone or in combination with bevacizumab will be assessed (frequency and nature of dose-limiting toxicities; nature, severity, and relatedness of adverse events; changes in vital signs and clinical laboratory parameters) [ Time Frame: Length of study ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Objective response, defined as a complete or partial response confirmed ≥4 weeks after initial documentation [ Time Frame: Length of study ]
  • Duration of objective response [ Time Frame: Length of study ]
  • Progression-free survival [ Time Frame: Length of study ]

Enrollment: 44
