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: NCT00332280
Recruitment Status : Terminated (Lack of efficacy. Stopped at first interim evaluation point)
First Posted : June 1, 2006

Brief Summary:

The purpose of the study is to evaluate the efficacy and the safety of AMT2003 in cancer patients with advanced disease.

The primary evaluation criterion is clinical benefit response.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Gastrointestinal Cancer Prostate Cancer Genital Neoplasms, Female Drug: AMT2003 Phase 2 Phase 3

Detailed Description:

The study will include patients with a variety of solid tumors (i.e. esophageal, colon, pancreatic, bronchial, gastric, hepatocellular, gall bladder, prostate and gynaecological carcinomas.)

The clinical benefit response - CBR, is an end point that provides a clinical measure for symptom improvement in patients. The key evaluation parameters for CBR will be assessment of pain, the ability to perform daily activities and weight change.
