Tesetaxel as Second-line Therapy for Patients With Advanced Gastric Cancer

2014-08-27 03:14:53 | BioPortfolio


Tesetaxel is an orally administered chemotherapy agent of the taxane class. The dose of a chemotherapy agent is typically based on the patient's body surface area. Flat dosing is desirable in the clinical setting. Pharmacokinetic and safety data from completed Phase II studies suggest that administration of tesetaxel at a flat dose is appropriate. This study is being undertaken to evaluate the efficacy and safety of tesetaxel administered as second-line therapy at a flat dose to patients with advanced gastric cancer.
