Last verified: October 2012
This study provides a mechanism for continued administration of ALN-VSP02 therapy to patients with cancer who completed participation in another ALN-VSP02 clinical study. The primary objective of this study is to collect long term safety data.

Condition Intervention Phase
Solid Tumors Drug: ALN-VSP02 Phase 1

Study Type: Interventional
Study Design: Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment
Masking: None (Open Label)
Primary Purpose: Treatment
Official Title: A Multi-center, Open-Label, Extension Study of ALN-VSP02 in Cancer Patients Who Have Responded to ALN-VSP02 Treatment

Further study details as provided by Alnylam Pharmaceuticals:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Collect long term ALN-VSP02 safety data [ Time Frame: Throughout the study ]
    Patients remain on treatment until disease progression or an adverse event. Adverse events are assessed throughout treatment.

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Assess disease response by Response Evaluation Criteria In Solid Tumors (RECIST) [ Time Frame: Every 2 months ]
    Disease response is assessed every 2 months until the patient stops treatment due to disease progression or an adverse event

  • Evaluate preliminary evidence of antitumor activity/antiangiogenic activity [ Time Frame: Every 3 - 6 months ]
    Evaluations will take place every 3-6 months until disease progression

Enrollment: 7
Study Start Date: July 2010
Study Completion Date: September 2012
Primary Completion Date: August 2012 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Intervention Details:
    Drug: ALN-VSP02
    The dose of ALN-VSP02 will be administered at the same dose level and schedule received at the completion of the previous study
Detailed Description:
Study ALN-VSP02 is an extension study for previously conducted ALN-VSP02 studies. The study is being conducted to allow for continued ALN-VSP02 therapy for patients who completed participation in an ALN-VSP02 clinical study, achieved clinical benefit with ALN-VSP02 (i.e., disease response of stable disease or better), and, in the Investigator's opinion, may benefit from continuation of ALN-VSP02 therapy.

Ages Eligible for Study:   18 Years and older   (Adult, Senior)
Sexes Eligible for Study:   All
Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   No

Inclusion Criteria:

  1. Patient has completed a previous ALN-VSP02 study, and is deemed to have stable disease or better.
  2. Patient has an Eastern Cooperative Oncology Group (ECOG) performance status score of 0-1.
  3. Patient has adequate hematologic, liver, and renal function.

Exclusion Criteria:

  1. Patient is receiving full-dose (therapeutic) anticoagulation therapy and/or aspirin > 325 mg/day or other platelet inhibitory agents.
  2. Patient has clinically significant cardiovascular disease or uncontrolled serious cardiac arrhythmia.
  3. Patient has clinically significant cerebrovascular disease.
  4. Patient has a seizure disorder not controlled on medication.
