Effect of Cabazitaxel on the QTc Interval in Cancer Patients

2014-08-27 03:15:12 | BioPortfolio


Primary Objective:

- To assess the potential effect on QTcF interval (QTc Fridericia) of cabazitaxel in cancer patients

Secondary Objectives:

- To assess the effects of cabazitaxel on heart rate (HR), QT, QTcB (Bazett's correction), and QTcN (population specific correction) intervals

- To assess the clinical safety of cabazitaxel

- To assess cabazitaxel plasma concentrations at Cycle 1 at early timepoints (during infusion and up to 5h post end of infusion)


The main period of the study consists of a maximum of 21-day screening phase, then first 2 treatment cycles with cabazitaxel. End of main period will be Cycle 3 or 30 days after last dose if patient discontinues study after 1 or 2 treatment cycles. The duration for a patient for the main period of the study will be about 9 to 10 weeks (screening, 2 cycles).

After Cycle 2, patients will have the option to continue to receive cabazitaxel and should be followed for safety reporting until 30 days after the last dose of cabazitaxel.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

New abnormal growth of tissue. Malignant neoplasms show a greater degree of anaplasia and have the properties of invasion and metastasis, compared to benign neoplasms.

Benign and malignant neoplasms which occur within the substance of the spinal cord (intramedullary neoplasms) or in the space between the dura and spinal cord (intradural extramedullary neoplasms). The majority of intramedullary spinal tumors are primary CNS neoplasms including ASTROCYTOMA; EPENDYMOMA; and LIPOMA. Intramedullary neoplasms are often associated with SYRINGOMYELIA. The most frequent histologic types of intradural-extramedullary tumors are MENINGIOMA and NEUROFIBROMA.

Distinctive neoplastic disorders of histiocytes. Included are malignant neoplasms of MACROPHAGES and DENDRITIC CELLS.

Neoplasms which arise from peripheral nerve tissue. This includes NEUROFIBROMAS; SCHWANNOMAS; GRANULAR CELL TUMORS; and malignant peripheral NERVE SHEATH NEOPLASMS. (From DeVita Jr et al., Cancer: Principles and Practice of Oncology, 5th ed, pp1750-1)

Benign and malignant neoplasms that arise from one or more of the twelve cranial nerves.
