Brief Summary:

RATIONALE: Drugs used in chemotherapy use different ways to stop tumor cells from dividing so they stop growing or die.

PURPOSE: Phase II trial to study the effectiveness of T900607 in treating patients who have unresectable liver cancer.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Liver Cancer Drug: T900607 Phase 2

Detailed Description:


  • Determine the complete and partial response rates of patients with chemotherapy-naïve unresectable hepatocellular carcinoma treated with T900607.
  • Determine the efficacy of this drug, in terms of duration of response and time to disease progression, in these patients.
  • Determine the pharmacokinetics of this drug in these patients.
  • Determine the safety profile of this drug in these patients.

OUTLINE: This is a multicenter study.

Patients receive T900607 IV over 1 hour once weekly. Treatment continues in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity.

Patients are followed every 3 months.

PROJECTED ACCRUAL: A total of 20-35 patients will be accrued for this study.
