Clinical and Translational Study of STA-9090
The purpose of this study is to find out what effects, good and/or bad STA-9090 has on colorectal cancer. This is a phase II trial which tests both how well the drug works in fighting your cancer as well as any possible side effects it will have on the patient.
Cancer is a disease of uncontrolled growth. This growth is controlled in part by a series of proteins that are part of a growth pathway. Some of these proteins are destroyed by a protein called HSP90 and STA-9090 is a test drug which blocks one of the proteins that helps cancer grow. This study will also look at molecular markers that may affect how the cancer grows, and how it responds to treatment.

|Official Title:||A Phase II Clinical and Translational Study of STA-9090 in Patients With Refractory Metastatic Colorectal Cancer|
- To Determine Overall Objective Response. [ Time Frame: every 8 weeks ]Patients with measurable disease will be evaluated using RECIST criteria for determination of response.

|Primary Completion Date:||July 2012 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)|
This is an open-label Phase 2 clinical study in patients with advanced colorectal cancer (CRC). Patients will be treated with 200mg/m2 of STA-9090 during a 1-hour intravenous infusion 1 time per week for three consecutive weeks followed by a 1 week dose-free interval. Patients tolerating STA-9090 will be permitted to continue treatment until disease progression.
Patients will be enrolled and receive 200mg/m2 of STA-9090. Patients will receive single agent STA-9090 intravenous (I.V.) infusion (an indwelling catheter may not be used) over 60 minutes weekly (three weeks on and one week off). Follow-up imaging will be performed every 8 weeks to evaluate response.
