The primary objective of this study is to determine how much XMT-1001 can safely be taken by patients with advanced solid cancerous tumors (the Maximum Tolerated Dose).
The study will also determine:
- The recommended dose of XMT-1001 for the next human study
- The safety and tolerability of XMT-1001
- The pharmacokinetics (PK) of XMT-1001 (how XMT-1001 behaves in the body)
- Evidence of XMT-1001 anti-tumor activity
This is an open-label, ascending-dose cohort (group) study of XMT-1001 administered intravenously over 30 minutes every 21 days (1 Cycle). Blood sampling for PK analyses will be performed immediately prior to dosing, and 9 times after dosing. Patients will be assessed for toxicities known to occur with other drugs of this class, such as bone marrow suppression, elevated liver function enzymes, hemorrhagic cystitis, and diarrhea. Tumor imaging will be performed every 2 cycles.

Next generation sequencing (NGS) is becoming increasingly integrated into oncological practice and clinical research. NGS methods have also provided evidence for clonal evolution of cancers during dis...
An internationally recognized set of published rules used for evaluation of cancer treatment that define when tumors found in cancer patients improve, worsen, or remain stable during treatment. These criteria are based specifically on the response of the tumor(s) to treatment, and not on the overall health status of the patient resulting from treatment.
An adenocarcinoma characterized by the presence of varying combinations of clear and hobnail-shaped tumor cells. There are three predominant patterns described as tubulocystic, solid, and papillary. These tumors, usually located in the female reproductive organs, have been seen more frequently in young women since 1970 as a result of the association with intrauterine exposure to diethylstilbestrol.

Mucocellular carcinoma of the ovary, usually metastatic from the gastrointestinal tract, characterized by areas of mucoid degeneration and the presence of signet-ring-like cells. It accounts for 30%-40% of metastatic cancers to the ovaries and possibly 1%-2% of all malignant ovarian tumors. The lesions may not be discovered until the primary disease is advanced, and most patients die of their disease within a year. In some cases, a primary tumor is not found.

An antineoplastic agent that is a derivative of progesterone and used to treat advanced breast cancer.
A group of malignant tumors of the nervous system that feature primitive cells with elements of neuronal and/or glial differentiation. Use of this term is limited by some authors to central nervous system tumors and others include neoplasms of similar origin which arise extracranially (i.e., NEUROECTODERMAL TUMORS, PRIMITIVE, PERIPHERAL). This term is also occasionally used as a synonym for MEDULLOBLASTOMA. In general, these tumors arise in the first decade of life and tend to be highly malignant.
