Phase 1 Dose Escalation Study of ARQ 092 in Adult Subjects With Advanced Solid Tumors and Recurrent Malignant Lymphoma
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.
This is an open-label, Phase 1, dose escalation study of oral ARQ 092 administered to subjects with advanced solid tumors and recurrent malignant lymphoma. The study is designed to explore the safety, tolerability, pharmacokinetics, and pharmacodynamics of ARQ 092 and to define a recommended Phase 2 dose of ARQ 092.
Subjects in this study will receive ARQ 092 orally at dose levels specified for their respective dose cohorts. Dosing will begin at 10 mg every other day (QOD) and will escalate until the MTD or RP2D is determined. Cycles will be repeated in four-week (28 day) intervals until progression of disease, unacceptable toxicity, or another discontinuation criterion is met. In the case of toxicity, dose adjustment will be permitted.
Assess the safety and tolerability of ARQ 092 in subjects with advanced solid tumors and recurrent malignant lymphoma by monitoring frequency and severity of adverse events [ Time Frame: Up to treatment discontinuation + 30 days with an estimated treatment duration of 4 to 16 weeks ]
Secondary Outcome Measures :
Assess the pharmacokinetic profile (Cmax, AUC, and half-life) of ARQ 092 [ Time Frame: During the first 29 days of treatment for each dose level ]
Assess pharmacodynamic activity [ Time Frame: During the first 29 days of treatment ]
Determine preliminary evidence of activity as defined by RECIST v 1.1 [ Time Frame: Up to treatment discontinuation + 30 days with an estimated treatment duration of 4 to 16 weeks ]
Determine recommended Phase 2 dose [ Time Frame: Up to treatment discontinuation + 30 days with an estimated treatment duration of 4 to 16 weeks ]
