This study has been completed.

This research study is looking at 9cUAB30 in healthy participants. Studying samples of blood and urine from healthy participants may help doctors learn more about how 9cUAB30 is used by the body.

Condition Intervention Phase
No Evidence of Disease
Other: Laboratory Biomarker Analysis
Other: Pharmacological Study
Drug: Retinoid 9cUAB30
Phase 1

Study Type: Interventional
Study Design: Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment
Masking: Open Label
Primary Purpose: Treatment
Official Title: A Pilot Study of the Novel Retinoid, 9cUAB30 to Determine Preliminary Pharmacokinetics

Further study details as provided by National Cancer Institute (NCI):

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Single dose pharmacokinetics of 9cUAB30 [ Time Frame: 0, 30, 45, 60, and 90 minutes, 2, 4, 6, 8, 12, 16, 18, 20, and 24 hours, and day 8 ]
    Scatterplots will be used to explore possible associations. Jonckheere-Terpstra trend test will be performed to determine the significance of the association between increasing dose level and each of the pharmacokinetic parameters. A Spearman rank correlation analysis will be performed to determine the relationship between actual dose administered and the pharmacokinetic parameters. Additionally, logistic regression analyses will be performed to correlate PK parameters with toxicity.

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Grade II or greater toxicities assessed using NCI Common Terminology Criteria for Adverse Events (CTCAE) version 3.0 [ Time Frame: Up to 30 days ]
    Patient toxicity will be summarized in several ways; the presence or absence of any toxicities, worst CTCAE grade, and strongest investigator-defined relationship will all be examined and characterized by dose. The different pharmacokinetic measures will be correlated with toxicity measures with polyserial correlation, a method for estimating the correlation between a continuous variable and an ordinal variable whose underlying distribution is continuous.

Primary Completion Date: March 2010 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: Arm I
Participants receive a single dose of oral 9cUAB30 on day 1.
Other: Laboratory Biomarker Analysis
Correlative studies
Other: Pharmacological Study
Correlative studies
Drug: Retinoid 9cUAB30
Given orally
Other Name: 9cUAB30

Detailed Description:


I. To characterize the single-dose pharmacokinetics of 9cUAB30 in healthy volunteers.


I. To determine the toxicities of this drug in these participants. II. To correlate the pharmacokinetics with the toxicity of this drug in these participants.


Participants receive a single dose of oral 9cUAB30 on day 1. Blood and urine samples are collected at baseline, periodically on day 1, and then on day 8 for pharmacokinetic studies by high performance liquid chromatography.

After completion of treatment, participants are followed at days 8 and 30.
