A Dose-escalation Pharmacokinetic Study of Intravenous ASA404 in Adult Advanced Cancer Patients With Impaired Renal Function and Patients With Normal Renal Function
The safety and scientific validity of this study is the responsibility of the study sponsor and investigators. Listing a study does not mean it has been evaluated by the U.S. Federal Government.
Read our disclaimer for details.
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the safety and pharmacokinetics of ASA404 in patients with refractory or relapsed metastatic cancer with impaired renal function and with normal renal function. It is very possible that patients with renal impairment will show differences in renal excretion of parent ASA404 and its metabolites, warranting a study that leads to a better pharmacokinetic assesssment in this population.
To evaluate the pK of a single intravenous dose of ASA404 1200 and 1800 mg/m2 monotherapy in adult cancer patients with impaired renal function compared to matching patients with normal renal function [ Time Frame: 12 months ]
Secondary Outcome Measures
To evaluate the pharmacokinetics of a single i.v. dose of ASA 1200 and 1800 mg/m2 +chemotherapy (doctaxel or paclitaxel + carboplatin) in adult cancer patients with impaired renal function compared to matching patients with normal renal function [ Time Frame: 12 months ]
To assess the safety and tolerability of ASA404 in adult cancer patients with impaired renal function compared to matching patients with normal renal function [ Time Frame: 12 months ]
To assess the safety and tolerability of ASA404 1200 or 1800 mg/m2 in combination with chemotherapy (docetaxel or paclitaxel + carboplatin)
To evaluate ASA404 pharmacokinetic parameters including AUC (0-t last),), AUC (0-inf)), T ((½)), CL, V(Z), Cmax, and Tmax
