Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: Rising dose; safety and tolerance
Sequential cohorts of patients with advanced solid tumors and recurrent high-grade gliomas will be be treated with escalating doses of BXQ-350 until the MTD is established, or in the absence of a MAD, the highest planned DL is reached.
Drug: BXQ-350
BXQ-350 is a novel anti-neoplastic therapeutic agent configured from two components: Saposin C (SapC), an expressed (human) lysosomal protein, and the phospholipid dioleoylphosphatidyl-serine (DOPS), a phospholipid located on cell membranes. When both the components are assembled together stable SapC-DOPS nanovesicles are formed(clinical formulation BXQ-350).
Other Name: SapC-DOPS
Experimental: Solid tumor patients
Cohort of patients with advanced solid tumors administered BXQ-350 at the MTD determined in Part 1 or at the highest planned DL if the MAD is not reached.

Detailed Description:

This is a first in man study of BXQ-350, a novel anti-neoplastic therapeutic agent composed of two components: Saposin C (SapC), an expressed (human) lysosomal protein, and the phospholipid dioleoylphosphatidyl-serine (DOPS), a phospholipid located on cell membranes. When both the components are assembled together forming stable SapC-DOPS nanovesicles (clinical formulation BXQ-350), the agent exhibits the propensity to enter the body and brain, target cells in the tumor mass, and induce cell death.

The study is divided into 2 parts:

  1. Dose Escalation Scheme Sequential cohorts of adult patients with advanced solid tumors and recurrent high-grade gliomas will be treated with escalating doses of BXQ-350 until the MTD is established, or in the absence of a MAD, the highest planned DL.
  2. During Part 2, patients with advanced solid tumors and recurrent high-grade gliomas will be enrolled and administered BXQ-350 at the MTD determined in Part 1 or at the highest planned DL, if the MAD is not reached.
