Details and patient eligibility

About

This trial will be conducted in three parts. Part A is a dose escalation trial followed by a dose confirmation trial in folate receptor (FR) 100% endometrial cancer participants. The primary hypothesis of this trial is that administration of vintafolide in combination with carboplatin and paclitaxel is safe and tolerable. Part B is a single dose, dose escalation, pharmacokinetic (PK), and QTc interval trial. The primary objectives include determination of the maximum single tolerated dose of vintafolide and to evaluate the effect of this single maximum dose on the QTc interval. Part C is a weekly dose escalation trial of vintafolide followed by a dose confirmation. The primary hypothesis of this part is that weekly vintafolide has acceptable safety and tolerability in participants with advanced cancers.

Inclusion and exclusion criteria

Inclusion criteria for all participants:

  • Histologically-confirmed metastatic or locally advanced solid tumor that has failed to respond to standard therapy, progressed despite standard therapy, or for which standard therapy does not exist or is unacceptable to the participant
  • Eastern Cooperative Oncology Group (ECOG) performance status of 0 or 1
  • At least one measurable metastatic or recurrent lesion
  • No history of a previous malignancy with the exception of cervical intraepithelial neoplasia, basal cell carcinoma of the skin, or adequately treated localized prostate carcinoma; or has undergone potentially curative therapy with no evidence of disease for five years
  • Adequate organ function
  • Female participants of childbearing potential must be willing to use acceptable methods of birth control or abstain from heterosexual activity for the course of the study through 90 days after the last dose of study therapy
  • Male participants must agree to use an adequate method of contraception for heterosexual activity starting with the first dose of study therapy through 90 days after the last dose of study therapy

Inclusion criteria for Part A:

  • Tumor lesions characterized as folate receptor (FR) 100% as determined by an etarfolide Sequential Single Photon Emission Computed Tomography (SPECT) and CT scan

  • Part A, dose escalation, Parts B and C: More than 3 prior cytotoxic regimens for metastatic disease.
  • Part A, dose confirmation: Has received more than 2 prior cytotoxic regimens for metastatic disease.
  • Primary central nervous system (CNS) tumor
  • Active CNS metastases and/or carcinomatous meningitis.
  • Known hypersensitivity to the components of the study therapy or its analogs
  • Recent (i.e., ≤ 6 weeks) history of abdominal surgery or peritonitis
  • Bowel occlusion or sub-occlusion
  • Prior whole abdominal or whole pelvis radiation therapy or radiation therapy to >10% of the bone marrow at any time in the past or prior radiation therapy within the last 3 years to the breast / sternum, head, or neck
  • Requires anti-folate therapy for the management of co-morbid conditions
  • Known regular user (including "recreational use") of any illicit drugs or had a recent history (within the last year) of drug or alcohol abuse
  • Pregnant or breastfeeding or expecting to conceive, or donate sperm within the span of the study
  • Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV)-positive
  • Active Hepatitis B or C

Treatment:
Drug: Vintafolide
Drug: Carboplatin
Drug: Paclitaxel
Part A: Vintafolide TIW
Experimental group
Description:
Vintafolide, intravenously (IV) on Days 1, 3, 5, 8, 10, and 12 of each 21-day cycle. Carboplatin, IV, at a dose of area under the curve (AUC)5, administered on Day 1 of each 21-day cycle. Paclitaxel, IV, at a dose of 175 mg/m^2, administered on Day 1 of each 21-day cycle
