|Neuroendocrine Tumors||Drug: ABI-009||Phase 2|
ABI-009, human albumin-bound rapamycin, is an experimental drug. "Experimental" means that the drug has not been approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA).
Rapamycin, the active part of the drug, inhibits a biological pathway (mTOR) that certain cancers use to grow. Rapamycin and similar types of drugs have been used in many other tumors, including advanced renal cell carcinoma. A standard mTOR inhibitor used in neuroendocrine tumors is everolimus. The human albumin component of ABI-009 may allow rapamycin to reach cancer cells more effectively.
ABI-009 has not been approved for the treatment of advanced, malignant neuroendocrine tumors of the lung, gastrointestinal tract and/or pancreas. The information from this study might help us identify if ABI-009 is safe and effective in this disease.
