The purpose of this study is to investigate the PK and safety of NKTR-102 in patients with mild, moderate, or severe hepatic impairment.

Condition Intervention Phase
Advanced or Metastatic Solid Tumors in Patients With Hepatic Impairment Drug: 145 mg/m2 NKTR 102 Drug: 120 mg/m2 NKTR 102 Drug: 50 mg/m2 NKTR 102 Phase 1

Study Type: Interventional
Study Design: Allocation: Non-Randomized
Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment
Masking: None (Open Label)
Primary Purpose: Treatment
Official Title: An Open-Label, Parallel-Group, Multicenter, Phase 1 Study to Investigate the Pharmacokinetics of NKTR-102 for Injection (Etirinotecan Pegol) in Patients With Advanced or Metastatic Solid Tumors and Hepatic Impairment

Further study details as provided by Nektar Therapeutics:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Pharmacokinetics (PK) of NKTR-102 and its metabolites [ Time Frame: Day 1 through Day 42 ]
    1 pre-dose PK measurements 14 post-dose PK measurements

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Safety and tolerability of NKTR-102 [ Time Frame: Day 1 through Day 42 ]
    Assessments are: physical examinations, vital signs, ECGs, AEs, and laboratory testing.

Enrollment: 25
Actual Study Start Date: November 2013
Estimated Study Completion Date: September 2017
Primary Completion Date: May 2017 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: normal hepatic function
12 Patients will receive a 90-minute IV infusion
Drug: 145 mg/m2 NKTR 102
Experimental: mild hepatic dysfunction
6 Patients will receive a 90-minute IV infusion
Drug: 120 mg/m2 NKTR 102
Experimental: severe hepatic dysfunction
6 Patients will receive a 90-minute IV infusion
Drug: 50 mg/m2 NKTR 102

Detailed Description:
Safety and PK data from patients with mild, moderate, or severe hepatic impairment will be compared with a control group consisting of patients with normal hepatic function.
