Details and patient eligibility


The primary objective of this trial is to evaluate the long-term safety of BIBF 1120 in terms of incidence and intensity of Adverse Events and changes in safety laboratory parameters. Secondary objectives are the collection of further safety data (vital signs), efficacy data and the determination of pharmacokinetic characteristics during long-term therapy with BIBF 1120.


41 patients




18+ years old


No Healthy Volunteers

Inclusion criteria

  • Male or female patients with advanced solid tumours who have completed a previous study with BIBF 1120. The patients should not have progression of their underlying tumour disease unless there is evidence for significant clinical benefit (e.g. symptom improvement) from treatment with BIBF 1120.
  • Age 18 years or older
  • Eastern Cooperative Oncology Group (ECOG, R01-0787) performance score <= 2

  • Presence of drug related toxicity > grade 2 CTC from previous therapy with BIBF 1120 or presence of drug related continuous toxicity of grade 2 for seven or more consecutive days which would preclude ongoing chronic therapy with BIBF 1120
  • Active ulcers (gastro-intestinal tract, skin)
  • Major injuries and surgery within the past three weeks with incomplete wound healing
  • Hypersensitivity to BIBF 1120 or the excipients of the trial drug

  • Gastrointestinal disorders anticipated to interfere with the resorption of the study drug
  • Brain metastases requiring therapy
  • Absolute neutrophil count less than 1,500/mm3
  • Platelet count less than 100,000/mm3

  • Aspartate amino transferase (AST) and/or alanine amino transferase (ALT) greater than 2.5 times the upper limit of normal (if related to liver metastases greater than five times the upper limit of normal)
  • Serum creatinine greater than 2 mg/dl (> 176 µmol/L)
  • Concomitant non-oncological diseases which are considered relevant for the evaluation of the safety of the trial drug
  • Chemo-, radio-, or immunotherapy within the past four weeks prior to treatment with the trial drug
  • Patients who are sexually active and unwilling to use a medically acceptable method of contraception
  • Pregnancy or lactation
  • Treatment with other investigational drugs or participation in another clinical trial within the past four weeks before start of therapy (visit 2) or concomitantly with this trial (except for a previous study with BIBF 1120)
