Protocol EC-FV-02: A Phase II Study of EC145 in Patients With Advanced Ovarian and Endometrial Cancers
This is a Phase II clinical trial of EC145 administered to patients with advanced ovarian
and endometrial cancers.
EC145 is a drug that is specifically designed to enter cancer cells via the folate vitamin
receptor (FR). Experimental evidence shows that this target receptor is expressed on
virtually all ovarian cancers as well as the majority of endometrial cancers. Early
clinical evidence in a small number of Phase I patients suggests that EC145 may have
antitumor effect in women with advanced ovarian cancer and that it is generally
well-tolerated. This evidence suggests that EC145 may be useful as chemotherapy against
advanced ovarian and endometrial cancers. The primary objective of Part A of this study is
to collect data on clinical benefit produced by therapy with EC145. The primary objective
of Part B of this study is to collect data on the safety and efficacy of EC145.
All patients will undergo imaging with the FR targeting investigational imaging agent
EC20(FolateScan) during the screening period to confirm eligibility for the treatment
portion of the clinical trial. Clinical evidence suggests that EC20 may be used to identify
women with cancers that express the target receptor.
Information about the safety and tolerability of both EC145 and EC20 will be assessed.
Part A (enrollment complete):
Allocation: Non-Randomized, Endpoint Classification: Safety/Efficacy Study, Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment, Masking: Open Label, Primary Purpose: Treatment
Part A: Percentage of patients deriving clinical benefit. Part B: To gather pilot data on efficacy and toxicity of EC145.
Clinical benefit is defined as the ability to receive 6 or more cycles (i.e., months) of therapy without progression of disease.
