A Study to Determine Safety, Pharmacokinetics and Pharmacodynamics of Intravenous TKM 080301 in Neuroendocrine Tumors (NET) and Adrenocortical Carcinoma (ACC) Patients

This study has been completed.

Last verified: August 2015
This study will be a Phase I/II, open-label, non-randomized, dose-finding trial conducted at multiple clinical centers. The study is designed to determine the safety, tolerability and PK of TKM-080301 in adult patients with solid tumors or lymphomas that are refractory to standard therapy or for whom there is no standard therapy. After the determination of the maximum tolerated dose this dose will be utilized in an expansion cohort or subjects with refractory neuroendocrine tumors (NET) or adrenocortical carcinoma (ACC) tumors.

  • Patient is seronegative for hepatitis B virus (HBV) and hepatitis C virus (HCV),
  • Patients must have a life expectancy of at least 12 weeks.

Exclusion Criteria:

  • Unresolved toxicities (> Grade 1) of previous chemotherapy,
  • Patients with primary tumors of the central nervous system (CNS),
  • Prophylactic hematologic growth factors administered </= 2 weeks prior to start of therapy,
  • Patient has history of or existing clinically significant cardiovascular disease,
  • Patient has a history of clinically significant asthma or COPD requiring daily medication within the last 6 months,
  • Patient has a seizure disorder not controlled on medication,
  • Patient has a known or suspected viral, parasitic, or fungal infection,
  • Patient has known hypersensitivity or previous severe reactions to oligonucleotide- or lipid-based products, including liposomal drug products and phospholipid-based products,
  • Patient has been treated with any investigational drugs, biologics, or devices within 28 days prior to study treatment.
