Brief Summary:
AC480IV will be administered as a monotherapy and then in combination with docetaxel in patients with locally advanced or metastatic solid tumors for whom there are no standard or curative therapies available. It is designed to evaluate the safety and pharmacokinetic parameters of AC480IV as monotherapy and also in combination with docetaxel under the conditions of the study.

Drug Information available for: Docetaxel

Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: AC480IV
Dose range finding study
Drug: Docetaxel
Docetaxel will be administered intravenously, initially as monotherapy and subsequently in combination with docetaxel immediately following AC480IV administration.
Other Name: Taxol

Experimental: Docetaxel
Dose range finding study in subjects with solid tumors
Drug: AC480IV
AC480IV will be administered as an infusion using a dose escalation design.
Other Name: AC480IV•Esylate

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Determine the safety and tolerability, including the dose limiting toxicity (DLT) and the maximum tolerated dose (MTD), of a 2-day pulse of AC480IV both as monotherapy and in combination with docetaxel in patients with advanced solid tumor malignancies. [ Time Frame: 18 months ]
    The primary outcome of the study will be safety and tolerability of the study treatment as measured by physical examinations, adverse events, clinical chemistry evaluations, ECG assessments and the report of dose-limiting toxicity as outlined in the protocol.

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Determine the pharmacokinetic (PK) parameters (Cl, Vd, Cmax, Clast, AUClast, AUCinf, t1/2, etc.) of AC480IV and docetaxel as monotherapy and in combination. [ Time Frame: Measured at specified timepoints during 1st and/or 2nd cycles of treatment. ]
    This study is designed to evaluate the safety and PK parameters of AC480IV as monotherapy and also in combination with docetaxel.

  2. Determine any preliminary evidence of efficacy of AC480IV as monotherapy or in combination with docetaxel by assessing tumor response and time to disease progression. [ Time Frame: 18 months ]
    Efficacy assessments will be completed within 7 days after the end of Cycle 3 and then every 3 cycles thereafter. Response Evaluation Criteria in Solid Tumors 1.1 (RECIST 1.1) will be used to assess radiographic response.

  3. Evaluate HER profile and Ras mutation status in patients' tumors [ Time Frame: Measured in specified dosing cohorts at various timepoints during 1st and/or 2nd cycles of treatment. ]
    If possible, patients with tumors known to express HER receptors, such as head and neck, lung adenocarcinoma, upper GI/esophageal, and breast cancers will be included.

  4. Evaluate whether AC480IV has anti-metabolic activity in the tumor microenvironment. [ Time Frame: Measured in specified dosing cohorts at various timepoints during Part 1 of this study. ]
    Tumor metabolism will be assessed by comparing pre-dose and postdose assessments.

Ages Eligible for Study:   18 Years and older   (Adult, Older Adult)
Sexes Eligible for Study:   All
Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   No

Inclusion Criteria:

  1. Male or female age ≥18 years
  2. Provide written informed consent
  3. Has histological diagnosis of a primary solid tumor malignancy that meets study criteria
  4. Has measurable disease (or evaluable if not in MTD expansion cohort) via computed tomography (CT) or magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scans with or without non-measurable tumors (a lesion in a previously irradiated area is eligible to be considered as measurable disease as long as there is objective evidence of progression of that lesion prior to enrollment)
  5. Less than 4 prior systemic cancer therapies (with the exception of hormonal agents), including experimental agents, prior HER-family TKI therapies, and prior docetaxel and other taxane therapy; there are no limits to the number of prior therapies for Part 1
  6. Women of childbearing potential (WOCBP) must be using an adequate method of contraception.
  7. WOCBP must have a negative serum or urine pregnancy test (sensitivity ≤ 25IU human chorionic gonadotropin [hCG]/L) within 72 hours prior to the start of study drug administration
  8. Has an ECOG performance status of 0 or 1
  9. Has a life expectancy >3 months
  10. Has adequate organ function as determined by laboratory tests

Exclusion Criteria:

  1. Patient is currently receiving or has received within the last month prior to Cycle 1 Day 1 (6 weeks for nitrosoureas, mitomycin-C, and liposomal doxorubicin) other chemotherapeutic, hormonal, or investigational anti-cancer agents with the exception of gonadal suppression agents and bisphosphonates for osteoporosis and skeletal metastases which may be continued while on study
  2. Patient has received other chemotherapeutic, hormonal, or investigational anti cancer agents that are outside of the timeframe described above and thus would be allowed in the study, but has toxicity that is unresolved (i.e., toxicity has resolved to Grade ≤ 1 or is deemed irreversible)
