A Trial of ABI-007 in Patients With Advanced Non-Hematologic Malignancies

The safety and scientific validity of this study is the responsibility of the study sponsor and investigators. Listing a study does not mean it has been evaluated by the U.S. Federal Government. Read our disclaimer for details. Identifier: NCT00046423
Recruitment Status : Completed
First Posted : October 3, 2002

Celgene Corporation

Brief Summary:
This trial will treat patients with advanced (metastatic) cancer with a new chemotherapeutic agent that may be more readily tolerated than some standard therapies. Patients will be given the new chemotherapeutic medicine once a week, by intravenous route, for three weeks, followed by a rest week. Treatment will be repeated in four week cycles if the patient improves on the therapy, and if there are no adverse events that require withdrawal of medication.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Neoplasms Metastases, Neoplasm Drug: ABI-007 Phase 1

Detailed Description:
This will be a dose-escalating study. ABI-007 will be administered as an outpatient infusion for three weeks followed by a week of rest. The treatment course will repeat every 28 days. No pretreatment will normally be considered necessary. Patients will have white blood cell and platelet counts monitored as will indications of performance (Karnofsky Performance Status), and will be asked to describe adverse events, if present. Patients will be treated for a minimum of two cycles to be evaluable for the study, and may continue in the study for four cycles within the study, if tumor response and safety parameters warrant continuing. Patients may continue on study medication beyond this at the investigator's discretion.
