Phase I Dose Escalation Study of the Safety and Pharmacokinetics of ME-143 Single Agent for Refractory Solid Tumors
|Study Design:||Allocation: Non-Randomized
Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment
Masking: Open Label
Primary Purpose: Treatment
|Official Title:||Phase I Open Label Dose Escalation Study of the Safety and Pharmacokinetics of ME-143 as a Single Agent in Patients With Refractory Solid Tumors|
- Dose limiting toxicity [ Time Frame: within the first 28 day cycle ]Patients will be administered ME-143 IV infusions weekly and assessed by physical exam, vital signs, hematology and clinical chemistry, urinalysis and pharmacokinetic sampling.
- Response rate [ Time Frame: baseline and a minimum of every 12 weeks ]radiologic assessments will be performed at baseline and a minimum of every 12 weeks

Experimental: single arm
experimental drug, dose escalation with 4 dose cohorts of 2.5 mg/kg, 5 mg/kg, 10 mg/kg, 20 mg/kg; Cycle 1 is 3 weekly IV infusions on Days 1, 8 and 15. If either the 10 mg/kg or 20 mg/kg dose levels are not tolerable, a 7.5 mg/kg or a 15 mg/kg dose level will be evaluated. After safety assessment, if there is clinical benefit, weekly dosing may continue until withdrawal.
Once the highest tolerated dose has been determined, patients will be enrolled to receive IV infusions 2-days per week. Cycle 1 at the highest dose level is 3 weekly IV infusions on Days 1, 2, 8, 9, 15 and 16. After safety assessment, if there is clinical benefit, weekly dosing may continue until withdrawal.
