GLPG0187: Safety, Tolerability and Pharmacokinetics in Patients With Solid Tumors

This study has been completed.
Information provided by (Responsible Party):
Galapagos NV Identifier:
First received: February 28, 2011
Last updated: June 9, 2013
Last verified: June 2013
The purpose of the study is to determine the safety and tolerability of GLPG0187 administered through continuous intravenous infusion and to explore its preliminary clinical efficacy in patients with solid tumors.

Condition Intervention Phase
Solid Tumors Drug: GLPG0187 Phase 1

Study Type: Interventional
Study Design: Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment
Masking: None (Open Label)
Primary Purpose: Treatment
Official Title: An Open-label, Dose Escalating Phase Ib Study for the Assessment of Safety, Tolerability, Pharmacokinetics, and Pharmacodynamics of Multiple Intravenous Doses of GLPG0187 in Subjects With Solid Tumors

Further study details as provided by Galapagos NV:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Safety and tolerability [ Time Frame: Four weeks + three-week cycles ]
    Patients will be monitored for cardiovascular safety (ECG) and adverse events, and blood- and urine-samples taken before and at fixed timepoints after a one-hour infusion of GLPG0187; if patients tolerate the treatment well, procedures will be repeated before and at fixed timepoints after the start of a three-week continuous infusion patients. Through monitoring and analysis of the blood- and urine-samples, it will be established whether the study medication would have any negative effects on the patient's general condition. Results will indicate whether DLT has occurred.

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Pharmacokinetics of GLPG0187 after intravenous infusion. [ Time Frame: Up to four weeks. ]
    Blood samples will be taken at regular timepoints before and on fixed timepoints after start of the one-hour infusion, as well as before and on fixed timepoints during the (first) three-week infusion, to establish the concentration of the study medication in the blood.

  • Pharmacodynamics of GLPG0187 [ Time Frame: Up to four weeks ]
    Blood samples will be taken at regular timepoints before and on fixed timepoints after start of the one-hour infusion, as well as before and on fixed timepoints during the (first) three-week infusion, to measure the levels of CTx (collagen telopeptide, a bone resorption biomarker).

  • Preliminary efficacy of GLPG0187 in terms of clinical activity. [ Time Frame: Four weeks + three-week cycles ]
    evaluation of antitumor effects according to RECIST 1.1.

Experimental: GLPG0187
GLPG0187 for infusion
Drug: GLPG0187
continuous IV infusion

Detailed Description:

Patients with pathologically confirmed diagnosis of advanced, recurrent, or metastatic cancer and who are refractory to standard therapy or for whom no standard therapy exists will first receive a one-hour infusion of a defined dose of GLPG0187. If well tolerated, one week later a three-week continuous infusion is started. If according to the investigator a subject has a clinical benefit from treatment with GLPG0187, the treatment cycle may be repeated until disease progression, Dose Limiting Toxicity (DLT), or the patient chooses to stop or cannot/will not comply with study procedures.

Throughout treatment, safety and tolerability will be monitored. Within one patient, a fixed dose (infusion rate) will be used. If at a given dose-level sufficient patients have been treated without reaching DLT, the dose for the next group of patients will be increased. This can be repeated until DLT is established, or the scheduled maximum dosage is reached.

  • Written informed consent according to local guidelines.

Exclusion Criteria:

  • Prior Treatment:

    • Less than 4 weeks since the last treatment with other cancer therapies, (i.e. endocrine therapy, immunotherapy, chemotherapy, etc.), and < 6 weeks for nitrosoureas and Mitomycin C.
    • Prior therapy with integrin receptor antagonists
  • Current Treatment:

    • Chronic daily treatment with corticosteroids (dose of 10 mg/day or more methylprednisolone or equivalent), with the exception of inhaled steroids.
    • Current or recent (within 30 days of first study treatment) treatment with another investigational drug or participation in another investigational study.
  • Hematology, coagulation and biochemistry:

    • Inadequate bone marrow function: Absolute Neutrophil Count (ANC): < 1.5 x 10E9/L, or platelet count <100 x 10E9/L or hemoglobin < 6 mmol/L.
    • Inadequate liver function, defined as:

      • Serum (total) bilirubin > 2 x the Upper Limit of Normal (ULN) for the institution;
      • Aspartate Amino Transferase (ASAT) or Alanine Amino Transferase (ALAT) > 2.5 x ULN (> 5 x ULN in subjects with liver metastases);
