Further study details as provided by Merrimack Pharmaceuticals:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Phase II dose of MM-151 alone and in combination with irinotecan based either on the maximum tolerated dose (MTD) or maximum dose of 18 mg/kg in patients with advanced solid malignancies. [ Time Frame: Two years ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Number of dose limiting toxicities (DLTs) within a cohort [ Time Frame: 2 years ]
  • Adverse event profile of MM-151 alone and in combination with irinotecan [ Time Frame: 2 years ]
  • Objective response to MM-151 alone and in combination with irinotecan based on RECIST [ Time Frame: 2 years ]

Other Name: camptosar

Detailed Description:
This study is a Phase 1 and pharmacologic open-labeled dose-escalation trial using a "3+3" design exploring weekly, bi-weekly, and tri-weekly dosing schedules. Successive MM-151 monotherapy cohorts of three or more patients will be treated at escalating doses until a maximum tolerated dose is identified, and subsequently in combination with irinotecan. The study consists of three parts as follows: MM-151 monotherapy dose escalation (Part 1); MM-151 monotherapy expansion cohort in cetuximab-refractory colorectal cancer (Part 2); MM-151 + irinotecan dose escalation (Part 3). It is expected that approximately 4 study sites will participate.

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

Inclusion Criteria:

  • Patients must have histologically or cytologically confirmed advanced malignant solid tumor that has recurred or progressed following standard therapy, or that has not responded to standard therapy, or for which there is no standard therapy, or who are not candidates for standard therapy
  • Patients must be > 18 years of age
  • Patients of their legal representatives must be able to understand and sign an informed consent form
  • Patients must have evaluable or measurable tumor(s)
  • Patients must be recovered from the effects of any prior surgery, radiotherapy or other antineoplastic therapy. Up to CTCAE Grade 1 is acceptable for patients with known peripheral neuropathy
  • Women of childbearing potential as well as fertile men and their partners must agree to abstain from sexual intercourse or to use an effective form of contraception during the study and for 90 days following the last dose of MM-151 (an effective form of contraception is an oral contraceptive or a double barrier method)

Exclusion Criteria:

  • Patients for whom potentially curative antineoplastic therapy is available
  • Patients who are pregnant or lactating
  • Patients with an active infection or with an unexplained fever > 38.5°C during screening visits or on the first scheduled day of dosing. (At the discretion of the investigator, patients with tumor fever may be enrolled.)
  • Patients with untreated and/or symptomatic CNS malignancies (primary or metastatic); patients with CNS metastases who have undergone surgery or radiotherapy, whose disease is stable, and who have been on a stable dose of corticosteroids for at least 2 weeks prior to the first scheduled day of dosing will be eligible for the trial
