A First in Man Study of MABp1 in Patients With Advanced Cancers

This study has been completed.

XBiotech, Inc. Identifier:
First received: November 16, 2009
Last updated: October 15, 2013
Last verified: October 2013

The purpose of this study is to block interleukin-1 alpha activity with a True Human monoclonal antibody, thus interrupting the inflammatory response that supports tumor growth/metastasis and which drives the cachexic process.

An adaptive design will be employed which will allow for the exploration of different dosing regimens, as well as tumor types that show preliminary evidence of efficacy.

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Maximum tolerated dose [ Time Frame: one year ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Tumor response [ Time Frame: one year ]
  • Cachexia Response [ Time Frame: 8 weeks ]
    Change in LBT as measured by DEXA

Enrollment: 52
Study Start Date: March 2010
Study Completion Date: August 2013
Primary Completion Date: October 2012 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: MTD
The study will utilize a standard 3+3 design for dose escalation. Once the maximum tolerated dose has been reached, an expansion cohort, as well as tumor specific expansion cohorts will be explored.
Drug: MABp1
0.25 mg/kg,0.75 mg/kg,1.25 mg/kg, 3.75 mg/kg IV (in the vein) on day 1 of each 21 day cycle until progression or unacceptable toxicity develops.
