A Study of ADH300004 in Surgically Resected Primary or Metastatic Colorectal Cancer and Liver Biopsy, or Planned Hepatic Resection

This study has been completed.

Last verified: August 2007
5 fluorouracil (5 FU), one of the most actively investigated anti-cancer drugs, is rapidly inactivated by the enzyme dihydropyrimidine dehydrogenase (DPD). ADH300004 blocks DPD. This study will examine the kinetics of inhibition and recovery of the metabolic pathways for fluoropyrimidines in subjects who receive a single oral dose of ADH300004, and may allow optimization of oral 5 FU dosing to subjects in future studies.

Condition Intervention Phase
Neoplasms Drug: ADH300004 Phase 1

Study Type: Interventional
Study Design: Allocation: Non-Randomized
Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment
Masking: None (Open Label)
Primary Purpose: Treatment
Official Title: Phase 1 Study of the Evaluation of Dihydropyrimidine Dehydrogenase (DPD), Uridine Phosphorylase (UP), Orotate Phosphoribosyl Transferase (OPRT), and Thymidine Phosphorylase (TP) Activity in Tissue Resected From Subjects Undergoing Planned Resection of Primary or Metastatic Colorectal Cancer and Liver Biopsy, or Planned Hepatic Resection, Following Administration of Oral ADH300004 (Adherex Protocol Number AHX-03-101)
