In this study, BKM120 will be administered to adult patients with advanced solid tumors whose disease has progressed despite standard therapy or for whom no standard therapy exists. The trial will confirm the safety and tolerability and determine the maximum tolerated dose (MTD) of BKM120 in Japanese patients.

Condition Intervention Phase
Advanced Solid Tumor
Drug: BKM120
Phase 1

Study Type: Interventional
Study Design: Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment
Masking: Open Label
Primary Purpose: Treatment
Official Title: A Phase I Study of BKM120, Administered Orally in Adult Japanese Patients With Advanced Solid Tumors

Further study details as provided by Novartis:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • establish Maximum tolerate dose (MTD) [ Time Frame: every day up to first 4 weeks ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Safety assessed by type, frequency and severity of adverse events [ Time Frame: Every week ]
  • Efficacy assessed by RECIST [ Time Frame: Every 2 months ]
  • Establishment of a pharmacokinetic profile by collecting information on parameters including but not limited to Cmax, Tmax, T1/2 and AUC in plasma samples [ Time Frame: Every 2 weeks up to first 4 weeks, then every odd cycle ]
  • Measurement of biomarkers for PI3K pathway in blood and tissue [ Time Frame: First 4 weeks ]
