The purpose of this open-label, multi center, phase I study, was to determine the safety profile of PHA-793887 administered by intravenous infusion to patients with advanced/metastatic solid tumors. This was a dose-finding study to determine the maximum tolerated dose and the dose of PHA-793887 that can be safely used in phase II investigations.

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Determination of Dose Limiting Toxicities and Maximum Tolerated Dose [ Time Frame: First cycle ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Assessment of Adverse Events (based on CTCAE version 3.0) [ Time Frame: All cycles ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
  • Evaluation of pharmacokinetics: plasma concentrations at different times after dosing and related assessment of conventional pharmacokinetic parameters. [ Time Frame: First 2 cycles ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Evaluation of pharmacodynamics: biomarkers modulation in skin and tumor samples of consenting patients at baseline and post-treatment. [ Time Frame: First cycle ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
