Safety and Pharmacokinetic Study of Cabazitaxel in Patients With Advanced Solid Tumors and Liver Impairment

2014-07-23 21:08:50 | BioPortfolio


Primary Objectives:

- To determine the maximum tolerated dose (MTD) and safety of Cabazitaxel when administered to advanced solid tumor patients with varying degrees of hepatic impairment

- To determine the pharmacokinetics (PKs) of Cabazitaxel in patients with varying degrees of hepatic impairment

- To correlate PK variables with pharmacodynamic (PD) safety parameters in order to guide prescribers with regard to dosing in this patient population


The study consists of:

- a screening phase (maximum length of 21-day).

- a treatment phase with 21-day study treatment cycles. Cycle lengths may be extended up to maximum of 12 additional days in case of unresolved toxicity.

Patients continue to receive treatment until they experience, unacceptable toxicities/AEs, disease progression ,withdraw their consent, or the investigator decides to discontinue the patient, or study cut-off, whichever comes first.

- a 30-day follow-up visit after the last dose of study medication.

The cut off date is when the last patient treated has completed cycle 1 and the subsequent 30 days follow-up.

Patients may continue to be treated as long as they are benefiting from study treatment and have not met study withdrawal criteria.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A malignant neoplasm made up of epithelial cells tending to infiltrate the surrounding tissues and give rise to metastases. It is a histological type of neoplasm but is often wrongly used as a synonym for "cancer." (From Dorland, 27th ed)

Abnormal growths of tissue that follow a previous neoplasm but are not metastases of the latter. The second neoplasm may have the same or different histological type and can occur in the same or different organs as the previous neoplasm but in all cases arises from an independent oncogenic event. The development of the second neoplasm may or may not be related to the treatment for the previous neoplasm since genetic risk or predisposing factors may actually be the cause.

A primary malignant neoplasm of epithelial liver cells. It ranges from a well-differentiated tumor with EPITHELIAL CELLS indistinguishable from normal HEPATOCYTES to a poorly differentiated neoplasm. The cells may be uniform or markedly pleomorphic, or form GIANT CELLS. Several classification schemes have been suggested.

A malignant neoplasm derived from cells that are capable of forming melanin, which may occur in the skin of any part of the body, in the eye, or, rarely, in the mucous membranes of the genitalia, anus, oral cavity, or other sites. It occurs mostly in adults and may originate de novo or from a pigmented nevus or malignant lentigo. Melanomas frequently metastasize widely, and the regional lymph nodes, liver, lungs, and brain are likely to be involved. The incidence of malignant skin melanomas is rising rapidly in all parts of the world. (Stedman, 25th ed; from Rook et al., Textbook of Dermatology, 4th ed, p2445)

A general term for a malignant neoplasm derived from muscular tissue. (Stedman, 25th ed)
