Safety/Tolerability Study of AV-412 in Subjects With Refractory or Relapsed Solid Tumor Malignancies
A Phase 1, Sequential Cohort, Dose Escalation Trial to Determine the Safety, Tolerability, and Maximum Tolerated Dose of Daily Oral Administration of AV-412 in Patients With Refractory or Relapsed Solid Tumor Malignancies
AV-412 is a new oral therapy developed to inhibit the growth of solid tumors in patients who have not responded to standard therapy or surgical interventions, or who have experienced relapse. This study will test the safety of AV-412 and determine the maximum tolerated dose for the treatment of solid tumors.

Although progress has been made, patients with malignancies often either progress after the traditional approach of chemotherapy, surgery, or radiotherapy, or are not candidates for these approaches because of the advances stage of disease. Novel therapies that may offer greater potential than those currently available are urgently needed.

AV 412 is a potent inhibitor of human epidermal growth factor family receptor tyrosine kinases (TKIs) and represents a growing class of anti-cancer agents. The recent introduction of TKIs has opened the door to new approaches to cancer treatment in which the goals of therapy are to halt disease progression, ameliorate symptoms, and improve patient quality of life. AV412 may inhibit growth of solid tumors, with fewer and less debilitating side effects.

This study is designed to determine the safety, tolerability and maximum tolerated dose of daily oral administration of AV 412. Patients will be assigned to escalating drug dose cohorts to determine the optimal dose. Evaluations to determine tolerability include PK, PD, and the adverse events which occur during the course of study drug administration.
