The purpose of the study is to see if daily and twice daily administration of BIIB021 is tolerated in patients with advanced solid tumors.

Condition Intervention Phase
Advanced Solid Tumors Drug: BIIB021 Phase 1

Study Type: Interventional
Study Design: Allocation: Non-Randomized
Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment
Masking: None (Open Label)
Primary Purpose: Treatment
Official Title: A Phase 1, Multicenter, Open-Label, Dose-Escalation, Safety, Pharmacokinetic, and Pharmacodynamic Study of BIIB021 Administered Once or Twice Daily to Subjects With Advanced Solid Tumors

Further study details as provided by Biogen:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Safety and tolerability of BIIB021 [ Time Frame: As specified in protocol ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • PK and PD of BIIB021 [ Time Frame: As specified in protocol ]
  • Antitumor activity [ Time Frame: As specified in protocol ]

Enrollment: 68
Study Start Date: February 2008
Study Completion Date: December 2010
Primary Completion Date: July 2010 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: 1
Subjects in Schedule A will take BIIB021 in the morning at approximately 0800 with at least 6 ounces of water following an overnight fast (Beginning at midnight).
Drug: BIIB021
Dosage, frequency (once daily), and duration as specified in protocol. This dosing arm is currently on hold.
Other Name: CNF2024
Experimental: 2
Subjects in Schedule B will take BIIB021 in the morning at approximately 0800 with at least 6 ounces of water following an overnight fast (beginning at midnight). The second dose will be taken, following at least a 2-hour fast, 12 hours (+/- 2 hours) after the first dose, except on Day 1 of Cycle 1 and Day 1 of Cycle 2.
Drug: BIIB021
Twice daily dosing
Other Name: CNF2024

Detailed Description:
Heat shock protein 90 (HSP90) inhibitors are anticipated to have clinical activity in solid tumors because Hsp90 is required for the folding, activation, and assembly of many proteins involved in cancer cell survival, proliferation, and metastasis. The maximum tolerated dose (MTX) for BIIB021 administered twice weekly in a phase I study in subjects with advanced solid tumors have been defined at 600mg. It is now reasonable from a safety perspective and desirable from a pharmacokinetic perspective to evaluate more frequent dosing intervals in solid tumors with the goal of providing more sustained and completed inhibition of Hsp90.
