A Phase 1 Dose Escalation Study of AMG 780 in Adult Subjects With Advanced Solid Tumors

This study has been terminated.
(Part A, the dose escalation and primary objective of the study, was completed. Part B, the dose expansion, was not conducted due to a business decision.)

Information provided by (Responsible Party):
This is a first in human, open-label, sequential dose escalation and expansion study of AMG 780 in up to 62 subjects with advanced solid tumors. The dose escalation part of the study is aimed at evaluating the safety, tolerability, pharmacokinetics and pharmacodynamics of AMG 780. The dose expansion will consist of up to 20 subjects and the dose level of AMG 780 will be dependent upon emerging safety and PK data from the dose escalation part of the study.

Condition Intervention Phase
Advanced Solid Tumors Drug: AMG 780 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 1, First-in-Human Study Evaluating the Safety, Tolerability, Pharmacokinetics, and Pharmacodynamics of AMG 780 in Adult Subjects With Advanced Solid Tumors

Further study details as provided by Amgen:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • To assess the safety and tolerability of AMG 780 in subjects with advanced solid malignancies (including adverse event rate, incidence of dose-limiting toxicities, and determination of maximum tolerated dose) [ Time Frame: 2.5 years ]
  • To evaluate the pharmacokinetic (PK) parameters of AMG 780 including, but not limited to Cmax, AUC, and accumulation ratio [ Time Frame: 2.5 years ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • To evaluate tumor response using RECIST criteria (measured by CT/MRI) [ Time Frame: 2.5 years ]
  • To evaluate changes in tumor volume (measured by volumetric CT/MRI) [ Time Frame: 2.5 years ]
  • To evaluate changes in tumor vascularity and to estimate the relationship between dose/pharmacokinetics and vascular response (measured by DCE-MRI) [ Time Frame: 2.5 years ]
  • To evaluate the incidence of anti-AMG 780 antibody formation [ Time Frame: 2.5 years ]

Enrollment: 44
