This is an open-label, Phase 1, dose escalation study of oral ARQ 087 administered to subjects with advanced solid tumors. The study is designed to explore the safety, tolerability, pharmacokinetics, and pharmacodynamics of ARQ 087 and to define a recommended Phase 2 dose.

Further study details as provided by ArQule:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Assess the safety and tolerability of ARQ 087 in subjects with advanced solid tumors by monitoring frequency and severity of adverse events [ Time Frame: Up to treatment discontinuation + 30 days with an estimated treatment duration of 4 to 24 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Assess the pharmacokinetic profile of ARQ 087 [ Time Frame: During the first 28 days of treatment for each dose level ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Blood sampling to assess the pharmacokinetic profile of ARQ 087.

  • Assess pharmacodynamic activity [ Time Frame: Up to treatment discontinuation ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Blood and tumor sampling to provide information on fibroblast growth factor (FGF/FGFR) signalling pathway biomarkers.

  • Determine preliminary evidence of activity as defined by standard imaging assessments [ Time Frame: Up to treatment discontinuation + 30 days with an estimated treatment duration of 4 to 24 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Determine recommended Phase 2 dose [ Time Frame: Up to treatment discontinuation + 30 days with an estimated treatment duration of 4 to 24 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: ARQ 087 Drug: ARQ 087
Subjects in this study will receive ARQ 087 orally at dose levels specified for their respective dose cohorts. Dosing will begin at 25 mg every other day (QOD) and will escalate until the maximum tolerated dose (MTD) or recommended phase 2 dose (RP2D) is determined. Cycles will be repeated in four-week (28 day) intervals until progression of disease, unacceptable toxicity, or another discontinuation criterion is met. In the case of toxicity, dose adjustment will be permitted.
