The purpose of this study is to determine if Angiocal® (PRS-050-PEG40) is safe and well tolerated when it is injected into the veins of patients with solid tumors. Other purposes of this study are to investigate how the body of the patients reacts to Angiocal®, how the blood level of Angiocal® develops after injection and how the tumor responds to the injection of Angiocal®.

Condition Intervention Phase
Solid Tumor
Drug: Angiocal® (PRS-050-PEG40)
Phase 1

Study Type: Interventional
Study Design: Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment
Masking: Open Label
Primary Purpose: Treatment
Official Title: A Phase I, Open-label Study of the Safety, Tolerability, and Pharmacokinetics of Angiocal® (PRS-050-PEG40) in Patients With Solid Tumors

Further study details as provided by Pieris Pharmaceuticals GmbH:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Dose limiting toxicity [ Time Frame: Throughout the course of the study ]
    Dose limiting toxicity is determined by recording and evaluating adverse events / toxicity.

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Pharmacokinetic analysis [ Time Frame: Throughout the course of the study ]
    AUC_0- τ; AUC_0-tlast; AUC_0-∞; C_max; T_max; t_½; CL; V_z; V_ss; RA_AUC; RA_Cmax; RL; dose normalized values (norm) for AUC_0-τ and C_max will be determined by dividing the original toxicokinetic parameter by the dose level.

  • Development of biomarkers in blood over time [ Time Frame: Throughout the course of the study ]
  • Response of target lesions over time [ Time Frame: Throughout the course of the study ]
    The objective tumor response for target lesions will be presented over time, employing the categories 'complete response', 'partial response, 'progressive disease´ and 'stable disease' and absolute changes.

  • ECOG performance status [ Time Frame: Throughout the course of the study ]
    ECOG = Eastern Cooperative Oncology Group

  • Clinical laboratory measures [ Time Frame: Throughout the course of the study ]
    Hematology, biochemistry, coagulation parameters, and urinalysis.

  • Anti-drug antibodies [ Time Frame: Throughout the course of the study ]
  • Results of 12-lead Electrocardiogram by time point [ Time Frame: Throughout the course of the study ]
    Changes from the baseline visit will be presented using shift tables (employing the categories 'normal', 'abnormal, clinically not significant' and 'abnormal, clinically significant') and absolute changes in laboratory values, if appropriate. Changes from the baseline visit in QTc between >30 and <60 ms and >60 ms will be listed and summarized separately.

  • Changes of vital signs from the baseline visit [ Time Frame: Throughout the course of the study ]
    Heart rate, blood pressure and body temperature.

  • Physical examination [ Time Frame: Throughout the course of the study ]
    Any changes in physical examination findings from baseline visit will just be summarized, since the physical examiniations will not result in measurable values.

Enrollment: 26
Study Start Date: May 2010
Study Completion Date: September 2011
Primary Completion Date: September 2011 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: Angiocal®
Drug: Angiocal® (PRS-050-PEG40)
Single dose of Angiocal® i.v. (intravenous) on Day 1 and further applications of Angiocal® i.v. during a repeated dosing period.

Detailed Description:
This is a phase I, open-label, dose escalation study with Angiocal® in patients with solid tumors using a group sequential adaptive treatment assignment. Patients will be allocated to different dose levels in small cohorts and will receive one single dose application on Day 1, followed by a repeated dosing period. The primary objective of the study is to evaluate the safety and tolerability of Angiocal® when administered intravenously to patients with solid tumors. The secondary objectives of the study are the characterization of the pharmacodynamic response, evaluation of the pharmacokinetic profile of Angiocal®, observation of tumor response.
