A Phase 1 Open-Label Study of the Safety and Pharmacokinetics of Recombinant Human Interleukin-21 (rIL-21) in Subjects With Metastatic Melanoma or Metastatic Renal Cell Carcinoma


This is a phase 1 safety study. Everyone enrolled and eligible will be given rIL-21. The
study has 2 parts, Part A will determine how high a dose of rIl-21 can be safely given to
patients with these types of cancers. Part B will determine if the drug is of any benefit
to patients with these types of cancers. Part A may have up to 7 different dose groups.
Beginning with the lowest dose, 3 patients will be treated and will be watched for side
effects. If the side effects are not severe, the next group of 3 patients will recieve a
higher dose. This cycle is repeated until the highest tolerated dose group is found.
