This is a an open-label, dose-escalation, first-in-man (FIM) study designed to explore EMD 1214063, in patients with advanced solid tumors who have not responded to previous therapies or for whom no other therapies are available.
Subjects will be assigned to one of two dosing regimens:
- Regimen 1: EMD 1214063 every day for 14 days, followed by seven days with no treatment (21-day cycle)
- Regimen 2: EMD 1214063 three times per week (e.g., Days 1, 3, and 5) for three weeks (21-day cycle)
Allocation: Non-Randomized, Endpoint Classification: Safety Study, Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment, Masking: Open Label, Primary Purpose: Treatment
Patients With Solid Tumors, Either Refractory to Standard Therapy or for Which no Effective Standard Therapy is Available
EMD 1214063, EMD 1214063

The purposes of this trial are: - To evaluate the toxicity and tolerability of QBI-139 in patients with advanced refractory solid tumors. - To determine the maximum tole...
This is a 4-part, open-label, Phase 1/1b, dose escalation study in pediatric patients with relapsed refractory solid tumors; 2) primary CNS tumors; 3) neuroblastoma; and 4) non-neuroblasto...
The main purpose of this study is to evaluate the safety of the study drug known as ramucirumab in children with recurrent or refractory solid tumors including central nervous system (CNS)...
This is a Phase 1b study that incorporates dose expansion cohorts to further evaluate promising clinical or biological activity.
This is a Phase 1 study designed to determine the maximum tolerated dose (MTD) and toxicity of intratumoral administration of VSV-IFNβ-NIS in patients with refractory advanced/metastatic ...
Relapsed/refractory pediatric cancers show poor prognosis; however, their genomic patterns remain unknown. To investigate the genetic mechanisms of tumor relapse and therapy resistance, we characteriz...
This phase 1/2 study (NCT01751308) evaluated cabazitaxel in pediatric patients. Phase 1 determined the maximum tolerated dose (MTD) in patients with recurrent/refractory solid tumors, including centra...
With the advent of next-generation sequencing (NGS), targeted sequencing is now contributing to decision making for which chemotherapeutics to administer to cancer patients, especially in refractory a...
The characteristics and management of invasive pulmonary aspergillosis (IPA) in patients with hematologic malignancies are well known, but IPA in patients with solid tumors is not well described.
nab-Paclitaxel has demonstrated efficacy in adults with solid tumours and preclinical activity in paediatric solid tumour models. Results from phase I of a phase I/II study in paediatric patients with...
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.
Chronic refractory anemia with granulocytopenia, and/or thrombocytopenia. Myeloblasts and progranulocytes constitute 5 to 40 percent of the nucleated marrow cells.
An alkylating agent of value against both hematologic malignancies and solid tumors.
Procedures using an electrically heated wire or scalpel to treat hemorrhage (e.g., bleeding ulcers) and to ablate tumors, mucosal lesions, and refractory arrhythmias. It is different from ELECTROSURGERY which is used more for cutting tissue than destroying and in which the patient is part of the electric circuit.
The period of time following the triggering of an ACTION POTENTIAL when the CELL MEMBRANE has changed to an unexcitable state and is gradually restored to the resting (excitable) state. During the absolute refractory period no other stimulus can trigger a response. This is followed by the relative refractory period during which the cell gradually becomes more excitable and the stronger impulse that is required to illicit a response gradually lessens to that required during the resting state.
Head and neck cancers
Cancer can occur in any of the tissues or organs in the head and neck. There are over 30 different places that cancer can develop in the head and neck area. Mouth cancers (oral cancers) - Mouth cancer can develop on the lip, the tongue, the floor...
