A Dose-finding Study of RO5323441 in Patients With Metastatic Treatment-Refractory Colorectal or Ovarian Cancer

This study has been completed.

Last verified: November 2016
This exploratory, open label study will assess the the dose-effect relationship, efficacy and safety of RO5323441 in patients with metastatic treatment-refractory colorectal or ovarian cancer. Cohorts of patients will receive doses of intravenous RO5323441 in the range of 25mg to 3g every 1 or 2 weeks and will undergo serial dynamic contrast-enhanced magnetic resonance imaging (DCE-MRI) assessments. In the absence of disease progression and unacceptable toxicity, patients may continue to receive their maximum dose of RO5323441 for a core treatment phase of up to a total of 6 months. Treatment with RO5323441 can be extended at the investigator's discretion until disease progression or unacceptable toxicity occurs. Target sample size is <100.

  • Additional DCE-MRI effects (time-course of DCE-MRI effects, test-retest reproducibility) [ Time Frame: up to 19.5 months ]
  • Candidate biomarkers associated with PD effect of RO5323441 [ Time Frame: up to 19.5 months ]
  • Pharmacokinetics: maximum and trough concentrations of RO5323441 [ Time Frame: up to 19.5 months ]
  • Safety and tolerability: Adverse events, vital signs, laboratory parameters [ Time Frame: up to 19.5 months ]
  • Efficacy: ORR, duration of response, progression-free survival according to RECIST criteria, CTI/MRI assessments [ Time Frame: up to 19.5 months ]
