Condition colorectal neoplasms
Treatment aroplatin (liposomal nddp) in combination with capecitabine
Phase phase 1/phase 2
Sponsor Aronex Pharmaceuticals
Trial size 105 participants
Trial identifier NCT00081536, C-726-03


This study is a Phase I/II study. In Phase I of this study, the objective is to determine the maximum tolerated dose (MTD) of combination therapy with Aroplatin and capecitabine in subjects with unresectable, local recurrence or distant metastases of colorectal cancer refractory to 5-FU/leucovorin and irinotecan. In Phase II, the primary objective is to evaluate the response proportion and duration with Aroplatin/capecitabine therapy. Secondary objectives are to evaluate frequency and severity of adverse events.
