|Official Title:||A Phase II Study of Milataxel (TL139) Administered Orally in Patients With Malignant Mesothelioma|
- To determine the objective response rate of milataxel when given orally to previously treated patients with malignant mesothelioma. [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
- To evaluate time to progression, duration of tumor response and safety and tolerability of TL139 treatment. [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
|Study Start Date:||March 2008|
