  Purpose

There is a great need for new therapies for carcinomas that have progressed on or not responded to current therapy. There are no approved Met targeted agents in standard clinical use. In the population of subjects with advanced carcinomas that are unresponsive to standard of care, and based on the relatively safe, reversible and monitorable toxicity profile of ASLAN002 in non clinical studies, the potential for benefit from ASLAN002 outweighs the potential risks for toxicity.

The purpose of this study is to identify the maximum tolerated dose of ASLAN002 in subjects with advanced or metastatic solid tumours, as well as to define the overall safety profile of ASLAN002.

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • To identify the maximum tolerated dose [ Time Frame: 12 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
    MTD is defined as highest dose at which less than 1/3 of the treated subjects experience a DLT (Adverse events, vital signs, electrocardiogram (ECG), echocardiogram scans, serum chemistry, haematology, coagulation factors, urinalysis, ophthalmic examination, and physical examination would be monitored)


Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • To characterize the pharmacokinetics (PK) of ASLAN002 (BMS-777607) and its N-oxide metabolite, following single and multiple dosing [ Time Frame: 12 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    After the single dose of ASLAN002 (BMS 777607), the following PK parameters will be derived: maximum observed concentration (Cmax), time of maximum observed plasma concentration (Tmax), plasma half life (T-half), area under the concentration time curve from time zero extrapolated to infinity (AUC[INF]), the area under concentration time curve from time zero to 24 hours (AUC[24]), percent urinary recovery (%UR), renal clearance (CLR)

  • To provide a preliminary assessment of anti-tumour activity, as assessed by the Overall Response Rate (ORR) and changes from baseline in tumour size [ Time Frame: 12 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Anti-tumour activity as assessed by the ORR based on Response Evaluation Criteria in Solid Tumours (RECIST), version 1.1, and the percentage change from baseline in the sum of longest diameters in target lesions at the first follow-up assessment


Estimated Enrollment: 30
Study Start Date: October 2012
Estimated Study Completion Date: December 2013
Estimated Primary Completion Date: October 2013 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)

Detailed Description:

The purpose of the study is

Secondary:

  • To characterize the pharmacokinetics (PK) of ASLAN002 and its N-oxide metabolite, following single and multiple dosing
  • To provide a preliminary assessment of anti-tumour activity, as assessed by the Overall Response Rate (ORR) and changes from baseline in tumour size
  Eligibility

Ages Eligible for Study:   18 Years and older
Genders Eligible for Study:   Both
Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   No
Criteria

Inclusion Criteria:

  • Male or female subjects 18 years of age or older at the time of written informed consent is obtained
  • Subjects with advanced or metastatic solid tumours who have either progressed on standard therapy or for whom standard therapy is not known

    o Tumour paraffin tissue block or 6-10 unstained slides from the tissue block for biomarker analyses should be provided during screening, if available

  • Subjects with histologic or cytologic diagnosis of the solid tumour (non-hematologic) malignancy
  • Subjects with life expectancy of at least 2 months
  • Subjects with prior anti-cancer treatments are permitted (i.e., chemotherapy, radiotherapy, hormonal, or immunotherapy
  • Subjects with toxicity related to prior anti-cancer therapy and/or surgery must either have resolved, returned to baseline or deemed irreversible. Four (4) weeks must have elapsed between surgery and/or last dose of prior anti-cancer therapy and the initiation of study therapy. At least 6 weeks must have elapsed between prior therapy with nitrosoureas, mitomycin C, and liposomal doxorubicin. For biologics (e.g., monoclonal antibodies such as cetuximab) and extended-release formulations, the washout period must extend 1 month beyond the recommended dosing interval (e.g., for cetuximab, once per week + 1 month wash out)
  • Subjects with Eastern Cooperative Oncology Group (ECOG) performance status of 0 or 1 (within 28 days prior to enrolment)
  • Women of childbearing potential (WOCBP) must be using an adequate method of contraception to avoid pregnancy throughout the study and for at least 3 months after the study in such a manner that the risk of pregnancy is minimized. WOCBP includes any female who has experienced menarche and who has not undergone successful surgical sterilization (hysterectomy, bilateral tubal ligation, or bilateral oophorectomy) or is not postmenopausal. Post menopausal is defined as:

    • Amenorrhea ≥ 12 consecutive months without another cause or
    • Irregular menstrual periods and on hormone replacement therapy (HRT), with a documented serum follicle stimulating hormone (FSH) level > 35 mIU/mL Women who are using oral contraceptives, other hormonal contraceptives (vaginal products, skin patches, or implanted or injectable products), or mechanical products such as an intrauterine device or barrier methods (diaphragm, condoms, spermicides) to prevent pregnancy, or are practicing abstinence or where their partner is sterile (eg, vasectomy) should be considered to be of childbearing potential. WOCBP must have a negative serum or urine pregnancy test (minimum sensitivity 25 IU/L or equivalent units of human chorionic gonadotrophin [HCG]) within 72 hours prior to the start of investigational product (IP). Sexually active fertile men with partners of childbearing potential must use an approved barrier method of contraception while on study and until at least 3 months after the last dose of IP.
