This study is primarily designed to assess the safety and tolerability of AZD4547 at increasing doses in patients with advanced solid malignancies and for whom no standard medication options are available. It also assesses the blood levels and action of AZD4547 in the body over a period of time.

Condition Intervention Phase
Advanced Solid Malignancies
Drug: AZD4547
Phase 1

Study Type: Interventional
Study Design: Allocation: Non-Randomized
Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment
Masking: Open Label
Primary Purpose: Treatment
Official Title: A Phase I, Open-Label, Multicentre Study to Assess the Safety, Tolerability, Pharmacokinetics and Preliminary Anti-tumour Activity of Ascending Doses of AZD4547 in Patients With Advanced Solid Malignancies

Further study details as provided by AstraZeneca:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • To investigate the safety and tolerability of AZD4547 when given orally to patients with advanced solid malignancies and define the maximum tolerated dose (MTD) and/or a continuous, tolerable dose Recommended Dose (RD). [ Time Frame: Blood samples weekly during dosing. Physical Exam every 3 weeks. ECG & vital, minimum every 3 weeks. Ophthalmology at baseline, monthly for 3 months then every 8 weeks. MUGA/Echocardiogram at baseline, 3 weeks after start of dosing and every 3 months. ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • To characterise the pharmacokinetics (PK) of AZD4547 following a single administration and at steady state after dosing when given orally. [ Time Frame: PK samples out to 96 hours after single dose (in parts A & B only). Steady state PK profile 3 weeks after the start of BD dosing. ]
  • To obtain a preliminary assessment of the anti tumour activity of AZD4547 by evaluation of tumour response using Response Evaluation Criteria in Solid Tumours (RECIST) criteria version 1.1 [ Time Frame: Baseline assessment, then assessment every 6 weeks after start of treatment. ]

Enrollment: 979
Study Start Date: October 2009
Study Completion Date: March 2015
Primary Completion Date: February 2014 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: Part A
Ascending doses of AZD4547 administered orally to patients to define the maximum tolerated dose (MTD) and/or a continuous, tolerable Recommended Dose (RD)
Drug: AZD4547
Single dose is followed by washout 5-10 days before multiple dose
Experimental: Part B
Dose expansion phase, at the RD defined in Part A
Drug: AZD4547
Single dose is followed by washout 5-10 days before multiple dose, and at dose of 80mg twice daily
Experimental: Part C
Expansion phase in patients with FGFR1 and FGFR2 amplified tumours commencing at the RD defined from Part A
Drug: AZD4547
Patients start at a dose of 80 mg twice daily, with no washout


Ages Eligible for Study:   25 Years and older   (Adult, Senior)

Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   No

Inclusion Criteria:

  • Minimum life expectancy of 12 weeks
  • The presence of a solid, malignant tumour that is resistance to standard therapies or for which no standard therapies exist
  • In the expansion for the study patients must have a tumour at least 1cm in size that can be measure using a CT or MRI scan, and provide a tumour sample to the sponsor company for testing of FGFR1 and/or 2 amplification
  • Expansion, 5 groups of advanced cancer
  • Solid tumours,FGFR1 and/or FGFR2 gene amplified
  • Squamous NSCLC, FGFR1 gene low & high amplified
  • Gastric adenocarcinoma, including the lower oesophagus/gastro-oesophageal junction, FGFR2 gene low & high amplified

Exclusion Criteria:

  • Treatment with any other chemotherapy, immunotherapy or anticancer agents within 3 weeks before the first dose of study
  • An inability to be able to take the study medication
  • A bad reaction to AZD4547 or any drugs similar to it in structure or class.
