Recruitment Details
Key information relevant to the recruitment process for the overall study, such as dates of the recruitment period and locations

Patients were randomized over a period of 1.9 years starting from 2012-01-11 to 2013-09-11.

The study was initially a two-arm study with MM-398 monotherapy and 5-FU/LV control (protocol version 1) . A third arm of MM-398+5-FU/LV was added later (protocol version 2).


Pre-Assignment Details
Significant events and approaches for the overall study following participant enrollment, but prior to group assignment
All patients were screened for UGT1A1*28 allele at baseline.

Reporting Groups
  Description
MM-398 (Arm A) • MM-398 120 mg/m2 IV on Day 1of a 3 weekly cycle Patients who were homozygous for UGT1A1*28 allele received the first cycle of therapy at a reduced dose of 80 mg/m2. If the patient did not experience any drug related toxicity after the first administration of MM-398, from cycle 2 onwards, the dose could be increased in increments of 20 mg/m2 up to a maximum of 120 mg/m2.
5-FU + Leucovorin (Arm B)
  • 5-FU 2000 mg/m2 IV over 24-hours, every week for 4 weeks (days 1, 8, 15 and 22), followed by 2 weeks of rest, in a 6 week cycle
  • Leucovorin l + d racemic form 200 mg/m2, or l form 100 mg/m2 IV over 30 minutes, every week for 4 weeks (days 1, 8, 15 and 22), followed by 2 weeks of rest, in a 6 week cycle.
MM-398 + 5-FU + Leucovorin (Arm C)
  • MM-398 80 mg/m2 IV every 2 weeks Patients who were homozygous for UGT1A1*28 allele and were randomized to Arm C, received the first cycle of therapy at a reduced dose of 60 mg/m2. If the patient did not experience any drug related toxicity after the first administration of MM-398, from cycle 2 onwards, the dose could be increased to 80 mg/m2.
  • 5-FU 2400 mg/m2 IV over 46-hours, and
  • Leucovorin l + d racemic form 400 mg/m2, or l form 200 mg/m2 IV over 30 minutes, every 2 weeks

  1. One patient in the 5-FU/LV arm did not have a recorded Baseline KPS value.
  2. Designation of the KPS level for the randomization strata is made during the screening period prior to knowledge of the treatment assignment. Baseline KPS is the last observed KPS value prior to treatment in treated patients and the last observed value in patients who were randomized and did not receive study drug. The observed baseline KPS value may be recorded post-randomization.
