Study Description
Brief Summary:

The primary objective of this trial is to determine the safety and tolerability of BI 853520 monotherapy by defining the maximum tolerated dose (MTD) and recommending the dose for further trials in the development of this compound.

Secondary objectives are

  • determination of the pharmacokinetic (PK) profile;
  • exploratory pharmacodynamic analysis; and
  • collection of preliminary data on anti-tumour efficacy.

Outcome Measures

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Determination of the MTD. It will be defined by the occurrence of dose-limiting toxicities (DLT) during the first treatment cycle of each patient in the dose finding phase [ Time Frame: After the first 28 days of treatment ]

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Cmax (maximum measured concentration of the analyte in plasma) after first dose [ Time Frame: up to 48 hours ]
  2. AUCt,1 (area under the concentration-time curve of the analyte in plasma over a uniform dosing interval t after administration of the first dose) [ Time Frame: up to 48 hours ]
  3. Cmax,ss (maximum measured concentration of the analyte in plasma at steady state over a uniform dosing interval t) after the last dose in cycle 1 [ Time Frame: up to 24 hours ]
  4. AUCt,ss (area under the concentration-time curve of the analyte in plasma at steady state over a uniform dosing interval t) after the last dose in cycle 1 [ Time Frame: up to 24 hours ]
  5. Disease control rate (CR or PR or SD per RECIST v1.1) ) [ Time Frame: up to 39 months ]
  6. Duration of disease control (measured from drug start date to the date of disease progression for patients who had CR or PR or SD during treatment) [ Time Frame: up to 39 months ]
  7. Objective response rate (CR or PR per RECIST v1.1) [ Time Frame: up to 39 months ]
  8. Tumour shrinkage (in millimetre) defined as change from baseline to the minimum post-baseline sum of diameters of target lesions. [ Time Frame: up to 39 months ]
  9. Pharmacodynamic assessment: phosphorylated and total PTK2 (FAK) modulation in tumour biopsies [ Time Frame: baseline, day 22 and day 28 ]
