MLN2704 in Subjects With Metastatic Androgen-Independent Prostate Cancer

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: NCT00070837
Recruitment Status : Completed
First Posted : October 13, 2003
Last Update Posted : July 13, 2007

Millennium Pharmaceuticals, Inc.

Brief Summary:
The purpose of the study is to determine the highest dose of MLN2704 that can be given multiple times safely to patients with prostate cancer, and to identify any side effects associated with taking the drug. This study will also evaluate how MLN2704 is taken up, broken down and eliminated by the body.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
