Details and patient eligibility


The primary objective is to evaluate the safety and, tolerabilitytolerance, pharmacokinetices and immunogenicity of escalating single doses and subsequent multiple dose of Gentuximab Injection in patients with late recurrence of metastatic solid tumors and to determine the maximum tolerated dose(MTD) and dose limiting toxicities(DLT).with single and subsequent multiple intravenous infusion in patients with late recurrence of metastatic solid tumors and to provide a basis for the protocol design of later clinical trials. The secondary objective is to evaluate the pharmacokinetics, pharmacodynamics and immunogenicity, and tumor response of multiple dose of Gentuximab Injection in patients with late recurrence of metastatic solid tumors.

Full description

The safety profile of Gentuximab Injection will be explored together with the pharmacokinetics, pharmacodynamics and tumour response to treatment with Gentuximab Injection to recommend the dosing regimen for further clinical studies. The pharmacokinetic properties of Gentuximab Injection will be evaluated after single and multiple dose administrations at different dose levels.

Trial design

20 participants in 1 patient group

Gentuximab Injection
Experimental group
Patients are assigned to a dose level at the time of study entry and scheduled to receive i.v. of a single dose. The patient enter the subsequent multiple dose i.v. in a 7-day cycle if no DLT in 21 days after the first dose. The study period of each subject will be up to 4 cycles until the tumor progression or unacceptable toxicity. The MTD will be determined by assessing DLT in each cohort from cohort 1 to 6, using a 3+3 dose escalation model. Cohort A begin at 4mg/kg IV and the dose escalated in separate cohorts from 8mg/kg IV, 12mg/kg IV,16mg/kg IV and 20mg/kg IV. If there is no DLT observe in any of these 3 patients in 7 weeks, then the trial proceeds to enroll 3 patients into the next higher dose cohort. If one subject develops a DLT at a specific cohort, an additional 3 patients are enrolled into that same dose cohort. Development of DLTs in more than 1 of 6 patients in a specific dose cohort suggests that the MTD has been exceeded, and further dose escalation is not pursued.
