This study has been completed.
Information provided by (Responsible Party):
Millennium Pharmaceuticals, Inc. Identifier:
First received: January 26, 2009
Last updated: June 23, 2014
Last verified: June 2014
This is an open-label, multicenter, phase 1, dose escalation study of IXAZOMIB. The primary purpose of this study is to determine the safety profile, establish the maximum tolerated dose, and inform the phase 2 dose of IXAZOMIB administered intravenously in patients with nonhematologic malignancies.

Condition Intervention Phase
Advanced Non-hematologic Malignancies Drug: IXAZOMIB Phase 1

Study Type: Interventional
Study Design: Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment
Masking: None (Open Label)

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Dose limiting toxicities, adverse events, serious adverse events, assessments of clinical laboratory values, and vital sign measurements. [ Time Frame: Up to 12 months ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Plasma PK parameters [ Time Frame: 1 month ]
  • Blood pharmacodynamic parameters [ Time Frame: 1 month ]
  • Disease response based on the investigator's assessment [ Time Frame: 4 months ]
  • Pharmacokinetics and pharmacodynamics in tumor tissue [ Time Frame: Day 1, Day 4 ]

Enrollment: 116
Study Start Date: March 2009
Study Completion Date: June 2012
Primary Completion Date: April 2012 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: 1

All patients will receive IXAZOMIB IV injection on Days 1, 4, 8, and 11 of each treatment cycle followed by a rest period of 10 days.

The first stage of the study will be initiated at a starting dose of 0.125 mg/m2

Subsequent doses will increase until a maximum tolerated dose (MTD) is established.

  5. Life-threatening illness unrelated to cancer
  6. Diarrhea >Grade 1 based on the NCI CTCAE categorization
  7. Systemic antineoplastic therapy / or radiotherapy within 21 days before the first dose of study treatment
  8. Systemic treatment with prohibited medications
  9. Patient has symptomatic brain metastasis
  10. Evidence of current uncontrolled cardiovascular conditions, including cardiac arrhythmias, congestive heart failure (CHF), angina, or myocardial infarction within the past 6 months
