Details and patient eligibility


BPI-9016M is a novel, highly potent and selective small-molecule inhibitor of c-Met/Axl kinase. In preclinical studies, it demonstrated strong activity in vitro and in vivo against c-Met/Axl kinase and its downstream signaling targets, and inhibited tumor cell growth. This first-in-human study is conducted to assess the maximum tolerated dose (MTD) and dose-limiting toxicity (DLT), to evaluate the pharmacokinetics, safety and preliminary anti-tumor activity of BPI-9016M with single doses and multiple doses.

Full description

This is a phase Ia study, first-in-human, open-label, dose-escalation study of BPI-9016M administered orally once daily (QD) to patients with locally advanced or metastatic solid tumors.The study is designed to evaluate the safety, tolerability, and pharmacokinetics of single dose and multiple doses of BPI-9016M. All patients will be followed up for adverse events during the study treatment and 28 days after the last dose of study drug. Subjects of this study will be permitted to continue therapy only when BPI-9016M is well tolerated, and tumor response or stable disease is seen.


20 patients




18 to 65 years old


No Healthy Volunteers

Inclusion criteria

  • Life expectancy ≥3 months
  • Eastern Cooperative Oncology Group (ECOG) performance status of 0-1
  • Adequate bone marrow, hepatic, and renal function
  • Patients of child bearing potential must agree to take contraception during the study and for 90 days after the last day of treatment
  • Signed Informed Consent Form

Exclusion criteria

  • Prior treatment with agents of HGF/c-Met inhibitors or HGF/c-Met antibody(Including Crizotinib,Cabozantinib,Volitinib etc.)
  • Any anti-cancer therapy, including chemotherapy, hormonal therapy, biologic therapy or radiotherapy within 4 weeks prior to initiation of study treatment
  • History of organ transplant; had surgery or severe injury within 4 weeks
  • Adverse events from prior anti-cancer therapy that have not resolved to Grade ≤ 2, except for alopecia
  • Any evidence of severe or uncontrolled systemic diseases, including CTCAE 3 or higher active infection, unstable angina pectoris, congestive cardiac failure and severe liver/renal or metabolic disease
  • Pregnant (positive pregnancy test) or lactating women
  • Inability to take oral medication, prior surgical procedures affecting absorption, or active peptic ulcer disease
  • Brain/meninges metastases unless asymptomatic, stable and not requiring steroids for maintenance
  • Active infection including hepatitis B, hepatitis C and human immunodeficiency virus (HIV)
  • Inability to comply with study and follow-up procedures
  • Any other diseases, metabolic dysfunction, physical examination finding, or clinical laboratory finding that, in the investigator's opinion, gives reasonable suspicion of a disease or condition that contraindicates the use of an investigational drug or that may affect the interpretation of the results or renders the patient at high risk from treatment complications
