Primary purpose treatment
sta 9090 (ganetespib)
This is a dose-escalation study. The first cohort will consist of three patients who will receive 2 mg/m2 of STA 9090 (ganetespib) during a 1-hour infusion 2 times per week (e.g., [Monday, Thursday] or [Tuesday, Friday]) for three consecutive weeks followed by a 1 week dose-free interval. Subsequent cohorts will receive 4, 7, 10, 14, 19, 25, 33, 40 and 48 mg/m2 provided that the previous dose was well tolerated during cycle 1 (week 1 - 4). Further dose increments will be approximately 20% over the previous dose level, until the maximum tolerated dose (MTD) is determined.

Primary Outcomes

The safety and tolerability of STA-9090 (ganetespib) in cancer patients via assessment of dose limiting toxicities and evaluation of Adverse Events in relation to Study Drug.
time frame: Cycle 1
