  Purpose

This is a first in man trial with a primary objective being the determination of the Maximum Tolerated dose (MTD) and the dose-limiting toxicity (DLT) in several regimens of MEK inhibitor MSC1936369B administered orally once a day, in subjects with malignant solid tumors to see how safe is treatment with MSC1936369B.

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • The number and proportion of subjects experiencing at least a Dose-Limiting Toxicity (DLT) over the first cycle - day 1 to 21 for each regimen separately. [ Time Frame: 21 days ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • The number and proportion of subjects experiencing treatment-emergent adverse events (TEAE). [ Time Frame: Until end of treatment / study ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • The number and proportion of subjects experiencing clinically significant changes in a laboratory parameter and/or vital signs judged to be related to the trial medication. [ Time Frame: Until end of treatment / study ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Plasma and urine PK parameters of MSC1936369B Plasma and urine PK parameters of MSC1936369B and effect of food on PK at MTD or lower dose. [ Time Frame: Until end of treatment / study ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Values and changes over time in PD markers in circulating PBMC, circulating tumor cells, apoptosis markers, blood circulating markers and in some subjects in tissue samples: apoptosis, phospho-ERK, marker of proliferation. [ Time Frame: Until end of treatment / study ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Number and proportion of subjects with clinical benefit (Complete Response, Partial Response or stable disease) and progressive disease based on the best overall response which depends on the tumor evaluations assessed at the end of each 2 cycles. [ Time Frame: Until end of treatment / study ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
