Phase I, Multicenter, Open-label, Dose-escalating, Clinical and Pharmacokinetic Study of PM01183 in Patients With Advanced Solid Tumors
1. Voluntary written informed consent of the patient obtained before any study-specific
2. Patients with histologically/cytologically confirmed diagnosis of advanced solid
tumors refractory to standard therapy or for whom no standard therapy exist
(excluding primary central nervous system tumors).
3. Age ≥ 18 years.
4. Patients with measurable or non-measurable disease according to RECIST.
5. Patients entered at the expansion cohort of the RD must have:
- Measurable disease according to RECIST and/or, evaluable disease by serum
markers in the case of prostate and ovarian cancer [according to the
Prostate-Specific Antigen Working Group Recommendations (PSAWGR) and the
Gynecologic Cancer Intergroup (GCIG) specific criteria, respectively].
- Confirmed progressive disease after last therapy, before study initiation.
- Available tumor samples (if pharmacogenomic study consented).
6. Recovery from any drug-related adverse event derived from any previous treatment,
excluding alopecia and grade ≤ 1 asymptomatic peripheral neuropathy according to the
National Cancer Institute-Common Terminology Criteria for Adverse Events (NCI-CTCAE)
7. Laboratory values within seven days prior to first infusion:
- Platelet count ≥ 100 x109/l, hemoglobin > 9 g/dl (patients can be transfused as
clinically indicated prior to study entry) and absolute neutrophils count (ANC)
≥ 1.5 x109/l.
- Alkaline phosphatase ≤ 2.5 x the upper limit of normality (ULN)
- Aspartate aminotransferase (AST) ≤ 2.5 x ULN.
- Alanine aminotransferase (ALT) ≤ 2.5 x ULN.
- Total bilirubin ≤ ULN. f) Calculated creatinine clearance: ≥ 40 ml/min
(calculated using the Cockcroft and Gault formula).
- Albumin ≥ 2.5 g/dl.
- Eastern Cooperative Oncology Group (ECOG) performance status ≤ 2.
8. Women of childbearing potential must have a negative serum pregnancy test before
study entry. Both men and women must agree to use a medically acceptable method of
contraception throughout the treatment period and for 6 months after discontinuation
of treatment. Acceptable methods of contraception include: intrauterine conceptive
device (IUD), oral contraceptives, subdermal implant and double barrier (condom with
a contraceptive sponge or contraceptive suppository).
1. Pregnant or lactating women.
2. Less than three weeks from radiation therapy (six weeks in case of extensive prior
radiotherapy) or last dose of hormonal therapy, biological therapy or chemotherapy
(six weeks in case of nitrosoureas, mitomycin C, trastuzumab, bicalutamide or
3. Evidence of progressive Central Nervous System (CNS) metastases or any symptomatic
brain or leptomeningeal metastases.
4. Patients for whom non-standard surgery approach may result in tumor free survival or
5. Other relevant diseases or adverse clinical conditions:
- Increased cardiac risk: symptomatic and/or medication requiring congestive heart
failure or clinically relevant valvular heart disease or unstable angor pectoris
or myocardial infarction within 12 months before inclusion in the study, or ≥
grade 1 arrhythmia or any grade requiring treatment, or uncontrolled arterial
hypertension (≥ 160/100 mmHg) despite optimal medical therapy.
- History of significant neurological or psychiatric disorders.
- Active infection.
- Significant non-neoplastic liver disease (e.g., cirrhosis, active chronic
- Immunocompromised patients, including those known to be infected by human
immunodeficiency virus (HIV).
- Any other major illness that, in the investigator's judgment, will substantially
increase the risk associated with the patient's participation in this study.
6. Limitation of the patient's ability to comply with the treatment or to follow-up at a
participating protocol. Patients registered on this trial must be treated and
followed at a participating center.
7. Prior treatment with any investigational product in the period ≥ 5 half-lives of the
investigational compound prior to the first infusion.
8. Known hypersensitivity to any of the components of the drug product.
