Brief Summary:
A study of DHP107, a novel oral paclitaxel formulation, to determine maximum tolerated dose and recommended dose for phase II trial in patients with advanced solid cancer and explore efficacy of DHP107 in patients with gastric cancer

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Solid Tumor Stage IV Gastric Cancer Drug: Paclitaxel Phase 1 Phase 2

Detailed Description:
  1. Primary objective To determine the maximum tolerated dose and the recommended dose for phase 2 clinical trial for the repeated administration of DHP107 (oral paclitaxel) on advanced solid cancer patients
  2. Secondary objectives

    • To identify the dose limiting toxicity and the safety (toxicity) of DHP107
    • To evaluate the efficacy (tumor response rate) of DHP107
    • To assess pharmacokinetic (PK) characteristics of DHP107

Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: DHP107(Oral paclitaxel)
  • Phase I (determining MTD) The patients diagnosed with either advanced or metastatic solid cancers were enrolled. The administered dose was escalated in a step-wise manner by an increment of 2 x 50 mg/m2 at each dose level. Three patients were treated for toxicity evaluation for each dose level.
  • Phase IIa (efficacy evaluation) The safety and efficacy of the corresponding dose was investigated more closely by increasing the patient number to 6 or more patients in the dose tentatively determined as recommended dose for phase IIa clinical trial.
Drug: Paclitaxel
Oral administration on day 1,8,15 of 4-week cycle until progression, unacceptable toxicity or withdrawal of informed consent.
Other Name: DHP107

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Number of participants with dose limiting toxicity(DLT) to determine maximum tolerated dose(MTD) [ Time Frame: First cycle of treatment (4-week) ]
    To determine the dose at which no more than one patient out of up to 6 patients at the same dose level experience a drug-related dose-limiting toxicity

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. To identify the dose limiting toxicity(DLT) and the safety (toxicity) of DHP107 [ Time Frame: First cycle of treatment (4-week) ]
    Adverse events are evaluated in the first cycle(4-week) according to NCI CTCAE v4.0

  2. To evaluate efficacy(tumor response) by RECIST criteria version 1.1 [ Time Frame: every 8 weeks (±1 week) ]
  3. PK parameters for DHP107 derived from determining their plasma concentrations using validated assays. [ Time Frame: First cycle of treatment (4-week) ]
