Study of Safety and Efficacy of Glufosfamide in Combination With Gemcitabine in Cancer
A Phase 1/2 Dose-Escalation Study of the Safety, Efficacy and Pharmacokinetics of Glufosfamide in Combination With Gemcitabine in Advanced Solid Tumors and Pancreatic Adenocarcinoma
The purpose of this study is to determine the safety of glufosfamide when administered in combination with gemcitabine.

This study, TH-CR-301, is a Phase 1/2 study that will evaluate the efficacy and safety of glufosfamide in combination with gemcitabine in advanced solid tumors or in first line treatment of pancreatic cancer.

Study Hypothesis: Glufosfamide in combination with gemcitabine may provide benefits in survival to patients with advanced solid tumors or metastatic pancreatic cancer.
