Safety Study of an Immune Response Modifier in Patients With Refractory Solid Organ Tumors
The safety and scientific validity of this study is the responsibility of the study sponsor and investigators. Listing a study does not mean it has been evaluated by the U.S. Federal Government.
Read our disclaimer for details.
Study 1493-852A is a phase 1 study with the primary objective of determining safety and the highest tolerated dose of an experimental immune response modifier administered intravenously to patients with solid organ tumors not responsive to currently available treatments. The secondary objective of the study is to monitor the tumor response to this form of treatment.
