Last updated: October 31, 2013
Last verified: October 2013
Investigation of absorption, distribution, metabolism and excretion (ADME) and assessment of safety, tolerability and preliminary therapeutic effects of [14C]volasertib in patients with advanced solid tumours.

Condition Intervention Phase
Drug: BI 6727
Phase 1

Study Type: Interventional
Study Design: Allocation: Non-Randomized
Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment
Masking: Open Label
Primary Purpose: Treatment
Official Title: Investigation of the Metabolism, Excretion and Pharmacokinetics of an Openlabel Single Dose of 300 mg [14C]Volasertib Administered Intravenously in Patients With Various Solid Tumours With a Possible Extension Phase With Nonlabelled Drug

Further study details as provided by Boehringer Ingelheim:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Individual time course profiles of 14C-radioactivity in nmol/L in whole blood, plasma and urine and in nmol/kg for faeces [ Time Frame: 3 weeks ]
  • Individual time course profiles of BI 6727 and its metabolite CD 10899 in plasma and urine [ Time Frame: 3 weeks ]
  • Estimation of pharmacokinetic parameters using non-compartmental methods: from plasma and urinary concentrations of BI 6727 and its metabolite CD 10899; from whole blood, plasma, urinary and faecal concentrations of the 14C-radioactivity [ Time Frame: 3 weeks ]
  • Rate and extent of excretion mass balance based on the total radioactivity in urine and faeces [ Time Frame: 3 weeks ]
  • Time dependency (if feasible) of Cblood cells/Cplasma ratio and Cblood/Cplasma ratio of 14C-radioactivity [ Time Frame: 3 weeks ]
  • Elucidation of metabolite structures and identification of major metabolites in plasma, urine, and faeces (if feasible) in comparison with various animal species (will be reported separately) [ Time Frame: 3 weeks ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Number of participants with adverse events as a measure of safety [ Time Frame: 52 weeks ]
  • Tolerability of BI 6727 [ Time Frame: 52 weeks ]
  • Assessment of preliminary therapeutic effects of BI 6727 [ Time Frame: 52 weeks ]
