CetuGEX™: Dose Escalation Study
Dose-escalation, PK- and Safety Study With Single Agent CetuGEX™ in Patients With EGFR Positive Locally Advanced and/or Metastatic Cancer

This is a prospective, open label, multicenter study evaluating the safety, tolerability and pharmacokinetics of CetuGEX™ after intravenous administration in patients with EGFR positive, locally advanced and/or metastatic solid cancers. The effect of CetuGEX™ on the development of anti-drug antibodies and on tumour response will also be evaluated.
