Safety Study of Increasing Doses of Combretastatin in Combination With Bevacizumab (Avastin) in Patients With Advanced Solid Tumors
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.
The purpose of this study is to determine the safety and tolerability of three dose levels of combretastatin A4 phosphate (CA4P) given intravenously (IV) in combination with bevacizumab every 14 days in patients with advanced solid tumors. The maximum tolerated dose will be defined if it is at one of the three dose levels under study.
