Tesetaxel is an orally active tubulin-binding inhibitor of the taxane class. Evaluation of tesetaxel in Japanese patients has been limited. This study is being conducted to determine the maximum tolerated dose and safety of tesetaxel administered orally once every 21 days to Japanese patients.

Condition Intervention Phase
Advanced Solid Tumors
Drug: Tesetaxel
Phase 1

Study Type: Interventional
Study Design: Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment
Masking: Open Label
Primary Purpose: Treatment
Official Title: A Phase I Study of Tesetaxel Administered Once Every 21 Days to Japanese Subjects With Advanced Solid Tumors

Further study details as provided by Genta Incorporated:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Maximum tolerated dose in mg/m2 based on the dose-limiting adverse events that occur [ Time Frame: First cycle (expected to be 21 days, including the day of first dose of tesetaxel followed by a rest period) ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Dose-limiting toxicities (adverse events that result in a reduction in the dose of tesetaxel in the dose-escalation scheme) [ Time Frame: First cycle (expected to be 21 days, including the day of first dose of tesetaxel followed by a rest period) ]
  • Percentage of patients with adverse events [ Time Frame: Through 30 days after the last dose of tesetaxel ]
  • Tumor response rate [ Time Frame: After Cycle 2 (expected to be after Day 42 counting from the date of first dose of tesetaxel) ]

Estimated Enrollment: 12
Study Start Date: April 2011
Estimated Study Completion Date: September 2012
Estimated Primary Completion Date: July 2012 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: Tesetaxel
Tesetaxel administered orally once every 21 days for at least 2 cycles
Drug: Tesetaxel
The starting dose for the first 3 patients treated will be 24 mg/m2. In the absence of dose-limiting toxicity, the dose will be increased by 3 mg/m2 for the next group of 3 patients treated. Interpatient dose escalation will continue in this manner to 27 and 31 mg/m2 until the maximum tolerated dose or the maximum dose allowed per protocol (31 mg/m2) is reached and 6 patients are treated at this dose.
