Details and patient eligibility


The primary objective of this study is to identify a safe and tolerated dose and schedule of the orally administered PLK4 inhibitor RP-1664. In addition, this study will examine the pharmacokinetics (PK), pharmacodynamics (PD) and preliminary anti-tumor activity of RP-1664 in advanced solid tumors.

Full description

This is a first-in-human, Phase 1, multi-center, open-label, dose-escalation and expansion study to: Evaluate the safety profile and MTD of RP-1664 and establish a recommended dose and schedule for further clinical investigation, In addition, the study aims to characterize the PK, PD, and preliminary anti-tumor activity of orally administered RP-1664. Exploratory objectives include examination of biomarker responses in relationship to RP-1664 exposure. After the recommended dose and schedule is determined, expansion cohorts with molecularly selected advanced solid tumors will be enrolled to preliminarily assess the anti-tumor effect, and further examine the safety and PK of RP-1664 at the RP2D.

Exclusion criteria

  • History or current condition (such as transfusion dependent anemia or thrombocytopenia), therapy, or laboratory abnormality that might confound the study results, or interfere with the patient's participation for the full duration of the study treatment.
  • Life-threatening illness, medical condition, active uncontrolled infection, or organ system dysfunction or other reasons which, in the investigator's opinion, could compromise the patient's safety.
