Summary

Primary:

- Phase Ib: To define the safety, tolerability and maximum tolerated dose (MTD) of E7080 administered in combination with dacarbazine.

- Phase II: To evaluate the safety and tolerability of E7080 administered in combination with dacarbazine, compared with dacarbazine alone.

e7080
Test product: dose and mode of administration: E7080 will be provided as 1 mg, 4 mg, and 10 mg tablets. E7080 will be self-administered orally by patients, once-daily, over 3 weeks during each cycle. For the Phase Ib portion, the dose will be 16 mg, 20 mg, or 24 mg and for the Phase II portion, the dose will be the MTD as determined in the Phase Ib portion of the study.
