Eligibility Criteria  ICMJE

Inclusion Criteria:

  • Histologically or cytologically confirmed colorectal cancer
  • KRAS wild type metastatic colorectal cancer
  • Progression of disease on at least 2 prior therapy to have included 5FU, or oxaliplatin or bevacizumab or irinotecan
  • Prior treatment with cetuximab is allowed (full dose tolerated), provided that the patient never required a dose reduction due to toxicities
  • Must have at least one measurable lesion
  • Must be 18 years of age or older
  • ECOG performance status 0-1
  • Life expectancy must be greater than 12 weeks

Exclusion Criteria:

  • Colorectal cancer with a KRAS mutation or in which the KRAS genotype status is unknown
  • Metastasis to the CNS
  • Prior treatment with any Hsp90 inhibitor compounds
  • Patients who received systemic anti-cancer treatment prior to the first dose of AUY922 within the following time frames:

    • Radiotherapy, conventional chemotherapy: within 2 weeks
    • Palliative radiotherapy: within 2 weeks
    • Nitrosoureas, monoclonal antibodies, such as trastuzumab and mitomycin: within 6 weeks
    • Any continuous-dosing (i.e. daily dosing, every-other-day dosing, Monday-Wednesday-Friday dosing, weekly etc.) of systemic anti-cancer treatment for which the recover period is not known, or investigational drugs (i.e. targeted agents) within a duration of ≤ 5 half lives of the agent and their active metabolites (if any)
