Status: Recruiting
Diagnosis: Sarcoma
NCT ID: NCT01636479 (View complete trial on
DFCI Protocol ID: 13-134


Primary Objectives: - To determine safety and the maximum tolerated dose (MTD) of SAR405838 through the characterization of dose-limiting toxicities (DLTs). - To assess biological activities in patients with dedifferentiated liposarcoma during MTD cohort expansion. Secondary Objectives: - Pharmacokinetic (PK) profile of SAR405838. - Biomarkers in association with SAR405838. - Anti-tumor activity in response to SAR405838. - Food effect on SAR405838 PK.

Eligibility Criteria

Inclusion criteria: - Histologically or cytologically confirmed diagnosis of a solid tumor for which no further effective standard treatment is available. Patients with lymphomas may be enrolled. - For dose escalation, tumor type that has high biomarker prevalence without molecular confirmation of biomarker status, or any tumor type with molecular confirmation of biomarker status; For MTD cohort expansion, only dedifferentiated liposarcoma will be included. - Presence of locally advanced or metastatic disease with at least one measurable lesion. Exclusion criteria: - Age <18 years. - Eastern Cooperative Oncology Group (ECOG) performance status of >1. - Life expectancy <12 weeks. - Unstable brain or leptomeningeal disease based on history and physical examination. - Inadequate organ functions, positive pregnancy test. - Pregnancy or breast-feeding. - Any anti-cancer drug therapy within 2 weeks (8 weeks for mitomycin C or nitrosoureas) or 5 half-lives of the drug prior to study treatment, whichever is shorter, prior to study treatment. - Unwillingness, if not postmenopausal or surgically sterile, to abstain from sexual intercourse or employ an effective barrier or medical method of contraception during the study drug administration and follow-up periods. - Recent (3 months) history of acute pancreatitis.
