This an an open-label study to define the safety profile and the maximum tolerated dose and confirm the clinical effective dose of palifosfamide-tris given intravenously in combination with etoposide and carboplatin in a wide range of cancers which etoposide and carboplatin are normally given. Once the maximum dose of palifosfamide-tris is determined,a Phase II study using the 3 agents combined will begin.

Further study details as provided by Ziopharm:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Assess the safety profile [ Time Frame: 21 Days ]
    Adverse events, vital signs, physical examination, laboratory data and concomitant medications

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Determine the maximum tolerated dose [ Time Frame: Up to 21 days ]
    Each dose level cohort will be 3 subjects. After 3 subjects have received a regimen, there will be a minimum observation period of 1 full cycle (21 days) for each of the 3 subjects before enrollment of the group of subjects at the next dose level.

  • Assess early signs of efficacy [ Time Frame: duration of study ]
    To assess early signs of efficacy using this investigational combination in this patient population
