A Study of DEDN6526A in Patients With Metastatic or Unresectable Melanoma

This study has been completed.
Information provided by (Responsible Party):
Genentech, Inc. Identifier:
First received: January 20, 2012
Last updated: November 1, 2016
Last verified: November 2016
This multicenter, open-label study will assess the safety and pharmacokinetics of DEDN6526A in patients with metastatic or unresectable melanoma. Cohorts of patients will receive escalating doses of DEDN6526A by intravenous infusion on Day 1 of each 21-day cycle. In the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity, patients may continue to receive DEDN6552A for up to 17 cycles (1 year).

Condition Intervention Phase
Malignant Melanoma Drug: DEDN6526A Phase 1

Study Type: Interventional
Study Design: Allocation: Non-Randomized
Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment
Masking: None (Open Label)
Primary Purpose: Treatment
Official Title: A Phase I, Open-Label Study of the Safety and Pharmacokinetics of Escalating Doses of DEDN6526A in Patients With Metastatic or Unresectable Melanoma

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Safety: Incidence of adverse events [ Time Frame: assessed on an ongoing basis and up to 90 days following last dose of study treatment ]
  • Maximum tolerated dose/dose-limiting toxicities [ Time Frame: approximately one year after study start ]
  • Determination of recommended Phase II dose [ Time Frame: approximately 2 years ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Pharmacokinetics: Area under the concentration-time curve [ Time Frame: Pre-dose, 30 min. and 4, 24, 48 hours post-dose and Days 7, 10, 15, 17 Cycles 1-4, pre-dose and 30 min. post-dose Cycle 5 and every other cycle thereafter ]
  • Anti-therapeutic antibody (ATA) levels [ Time Frame: Pre-dose Day 1 Cycles 1-4, and within 30 days post last dose ]
  • Tumor response (tumor assessments according to RECIST criteria) [ Time Frame: up to approximately 1 year ]
