This study has been completed.
Information provided by:
CASI Pharmaceuticals, Inc.
First received: December 28, 2007
Last updated: February 25, 2009
Last verified: February 2009
The purpose of the study is to determine the safety and effectiveness of providing 2-methoxyestradiol to patients with plateau phase or relapsed multiple myeloma. Information regarding trough 2ME2 levels will also be collected.
Relapsed Multiple Myeloma
Plateau Phase Multiple Myeloma
Endpoint Classification: Safety/Efficacy Study
Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment
Masking: Open Label
Primary Purpose: Treatment
||Phase 2, Open-Label, Safety, and Efficacy Study of 2-Methoxyestradiol Administered to Patients With Plateau Phase or Relapsed Multiple Myeloma
Primary Outcome Measures:
- To determine tumor response of 2ME2 administered orally by evaluation of objective responses in patients with plateau phase or relapsed multiple myeloma [ Time Frame: At least yearly ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
Secondary Outcome Measures:
- To assess the safety and tolerability of 2ME2 administered orally by evaluation of the frequency, severity, and duration of treatment-emergent adverse events in patients with plateau phase or relapsed multiple myeloma [ Time Frame: As reported ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
- To determine the minimum 2ME2 levels achieved in plasma following daily oral administration in patients with plateau phase or relapsed multiple myeloma [ Time Frame: At least yearly ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
