A Study to Determine Safety, Pharmacokinetics and Pharmacodynamics of Intravenous TKM 080301 in Neuroendocrine Tumors (NET) and Adrenocortical Carcinoma (ACC) Patients

  • Study type:

    Interventional What is this?

    Describes the nature of a clinical study. Types include:

    • Observational study — observes people and measures outcomes without affecting results.
    • Interventional study (clinical trial) — studies new tests, treatments, drugs, surgical procedures or devices.
    • Medical records research — uses historical information collected from medical records of large groups of people to study how diseases progress and which treatments and surgeries work best.
  • Study phase:

    I/II What is this?

    During the early phases (phases 1 and 2), researchers assess safety, side effects, optimal dosages and risks/benefits. In the later phase (phase 3), researchers study whether the treatment works better than the current standard therapy. They also compare the safety of the new treatment with that of current treatments. Phase 3 trials include large numbers of people to make sure that the result is valid. There are also less common very early (phase 0) and later (phase 4) phases. Phase 0 trials are small trials that help researchers decide if a new agent should be tested in a phase 1 trial. Phase 4 trials look at long-term safety and effectiveness, after a new treatment has been approved and is on the market.

About this study

This study will be a Phase I/II, open-label, non-randomized, dose-finding trial conducted at multiple clinical centers. The study is designed to determine the safety, tolerability and PK of TKM-080301 in adult patients with solid tumors or lymphomas that are refractory to standard therapy or for whom there is no standard therapy. After the determination of the maximum tolerated dose this dose will be utilized in an expansion cohort or subjects with refractory neuroendocrine tumors (NET) or adrenocortical carcinoma (ACC) tumors.

Participation eligibility

Participant eligibility includes age, gender, type and stage of disease, and previous treatments or health concerns. Guidelines differ from study to study, and identify who can or cannot participate. If you need assistance understanding the eligibility criteria, please contact the study team.

Inclusion Criteria:

  • Patients must have a histologically and cytologically confirmed solid tumor that is refractory to standard therapy or for which no standard therapy is known to exist, or who are not candidates for standard therapy, or non-Hodgkin's lymphoma or Hodgkin's disease that is refractory to standard therapy (i.e., patients have relapsed following at least 2 prior therapies) or for which no standard therapy is known to exist. For the Neuroendocrine (NET) and adrenocortical carcinoma (ACC) expansion cohort subjects must have histologically or cytologically confirmed, measurable (per RECIST 1.1) NET or ACC tumor that is refractory to standard therapy or for which no standard therapy is known to exist, or who are not candidates for standard therapy.
  • Patient has an ECOG performance status of 0 - 1,
  • Patient has adequate hematologic, hepatic and renal function,
  • Patient is seronegative for hepatitis B virus (HBV) and hepatitis C virus (HCV),
  • Patients must have a life expectancy of at least 12 weeks.

Exclusion Criteria:

  • Unresolved toxicities (> Grade 1) of previous chemotherapy,
  • Patients with primary tumors of the central nervous system (CNS),
  • Prophylactic hematologic growth factors administered ≤ 2 weeks prior to start of therapy,
  • Patient has history of or existing clinically significant cardiovascular disease,
  • Patient has a history of clinically significant asthma or COPD requiring daily medication within the last 6 months,
  • Patient has a seizure disorder not controlled on medication,
  • Patient has a known or suspected viral, parasitic, or fungal infection,
  • Patient has known hypersensitivity or previous severe reactions to oligonucleotide- or lipid-based products, including liposomal drug products and phospholipid-based products,
  • Patient has been treated with any investigational drugs, biologics, or devices within 28 days prior to study treatment.
