  Purpose

The aim of this study is to determine the safety and tolerability of elesclomol sodium at escalating doses (ultimately identifying the maximum tolerated dose). This study will also characterize the pharmacokinetics of elesclomol and evaluate its anti-tumor activity in advanced solid tumors that are metastatic and unresectable.

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • To characterize the safety and tolerability of elesclomol sodium administered once weekly to subjects with solid tumors [ Time Frame: Jan 2011 ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
  • To determine the pharmacokinetics of elesclomol in this population when administered once weekly as a 1-hour intravenous infusion [ Time Frame: Jan 2011 ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • To inform dose selection for future study using a once-a-week schedule [ Time Frame: Jan 2011 ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
  • To evaluate anti-tumor activity in advanced solid tumors that are metastatic and unresectable [ Time Frame: Jan 2011 ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
  • To assess the effect of elesclomol sodium on the development of peripheral neuropathy by rating sensory symptoms, strength, tendon reflexes, and vibratory sense [ Time Frame: Jan 2011 ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
