|Neoplasms||Drug: BAL101553 Drug: BAL101553 at MTD||Phase 1 Phase 2|
This is the first study of prolonged intravenous infusion of BAL101553 (lisavanbulin). BAL101553 will be administered as an intravenous infusion over 48 hours, to adults with advanced or recurrent solid tumors or recurrent glioblastoma who have failed standard therapy, or for whom no effective standard therapy is available.
The primary goal of the study is to find the highest dose of BAL101553 that can safely be given to humans and to assess what side effects occur. The study will start by treating patients with a low dose. Once it has been shown that this low dose is well tolerated, new patients will be treated at higher dose levels ("dose escalation"). Once the highest, well tolerated dose is identified, up to 20 new patients with platinum-resistant/refractory ovarian cancer and up to 20 new patients with recurrent glioblastoma will be treated at that dose (this part is called "dose expansion") to further assess as secondary goal the tolerability and potential anticancer activity of BAL101553. A further secondary goal of this study is to assess the pharmacokinetics of BAL101553.

BAL101553 at MTD in patients with platinum-resistant/refractory ovarian cancer or recurrent glioblastoma
Drug: BAL101553 at MTD
BAL101553 48-hour infusion on day 1, 8, and 15 of each 28-day cycle; treatment with maximum tolerated dose (MTD)
- Maximum Tolerated Dose (MTD) of BAL101553 [ Time Frame: 28 day cycle ]First 28-day treatment cycle dose limiting toxicities (DLT) graded according to CTCAE in the MTD-determining population in Phase 1 based on the number of participants with adverse effects as measure of tolerability at various dose levels
- Safety and Tolerability of BAL101553 Treatment Based on Number of Patients With Related Treatment-emergent Adverse Events (TEAEs) in the Phase 1 and Phase 2a Safety Population at Various Dose Levels and Indication [ Time Frame: TEAEs with onset on or after Day 1 of the study and until 28 days after the last dose ]TEAEs are defined as all events occurring after BAL101553 treatment begins, up to 28 days after last study drug administration according to Common Terminology Criteria for Adverse Events (CTCAE) version 4.03
- AUC of BAL101553 and BAL27862 [ Time Frame: 0 to 168 hours post-dose at Day 1 of Cycle 1 and Cycle 2 in each cohort in Phase 1, 28-day cycles ]
Pharmacokinetic parameter "Area under the plasma concentration versus time curve" AUC0-last (of BAL101553 and BAL27862 has been assessed after a 48-hour IV infusion.
Lisavanbulin (BAL101553) is the prodrug of avanbulin (BAL27862).
- Cmax of BAL101553 and BAL27862 [ Time Frame: Pre-dose, and 0.5, 1, 2, 4, 8, 24, 30, 48, 52, 54, 72 h, and 168 h after the start of study-drug infusion on Day 1 of Cycle 1 and pre-dose, and 0.5, 1, 2, 4, 8, 24, 30, 48, 72 h, and 168 h after the start of study-drug infusion on Day 1 of Cycle 2. ]
Pharmacokinetic parameter "Peak Plasma Concentration" Cmax of BAL101553 and BAL27862.
Lisavanbulin (BAL101553) is the prodrug of avanbulin (BAL27862).
- Tmax of BAL101553 and BAL27862 [ Time Frame: Pre-dose, and 0.5, 1, 2, 4, 8, 24, 30, 48, 52, 54, 72 h, and 168 h after the start of study-drug infusion on Day 1 of Cycle 1 and pre-dose, and 0.5, 1, 2, 4, 8, 24, 30, 48, 72 h, and 168 h after the start of study-drug infusion on Day 1 of Cycle 2. ]Pharmacokinetic parameter "Time to Peak Plasma Concentration" Tmax of BAL101553 and BAL27862
- Bioavailability of Daily Oral BAL101553 Measured by BAL27862 in Phase 1 [ Time Frame: Relative oral bioavailability, calculated as dose-normalized AUC0-τ following oral administration on Cycle 2 Day 21 divided by dose normalized AUC0-∞ following IV administration on Cycle 1 Day 1 for each cohort. ]Ratio of AUCs of avanbulin after oral and IV administration (relative bioavailability) of BAL101553 (lisavanbulin) which is the prodrug of avanbulin (BAL27862)
- Anti-tumor Activity of BAL101553 by Best Response Rate Per RECIST / RANO Criteria [ Time Frame: 28 day cycles ]
The objective response rate (ORR) was calculated using the efficacy evaluable populations (EEPs in Phase 2a) and the full analysis population (FAP in Phase 1 and Phase 2a) based on RECIST v1.1 guidelines (defines criteria for the radiological assessment in tumor response) for patients with solid tumors (excluding GBM (glioblastoma)) and RANO criteria (assessment Incorporating MRI and clinical factors) for patients with GBM.
ORR = Rate of complete and partial responses
