Concomitant use of medications associated with a high incidence of QT prolongation is not allowed. - History or signs of active coronary artery disease with or without angina pectoris. - Serious myocardial dysfunction defined as scintigraphically (e.g. MUGA, myocardial scintigram) or ultrasound determined absolute left ventricular ejection fraction (LVEF) < 45% of predicted. - History of HIV infection. - Active, clinically significant serious infection requiring treatment with antibiotics, anti-virals or anti-fungals. - Major surgery within 3 weeks prior to Randomization. - Substance abuse or any condition that might interfere with the subject's participation in the study or in the evaluation of the study results. - Any condition that is unstable and could jeopardize the subject's participation in the study.

Additional Information

Official title A Multicenter, Randomized, Open-Label Phase 2b Study to Investigate the Preliminary Efficacy and Safety of INNO-206 (Doxorubicin-EMCH) Compared to Doxorubicin in Subjects With Metastatic, Locally Advanced, or Unresectable Soft Tissue Sarcoma
Principal investigator Sant Chawla, M.D.
Description One hundred five subjects will be enrolled and randomized 2:1 to receive either INNO-206 or doxorubicin. INNO-206 at a dosage of 350 mg/m2 (doxorubicin equivalents of 260 mg/m2) will be administered as a 30 minute IVI on Day 1 of each cycle to approximately 70 subjects. Doxorubicin (75 mg/m2) will be administered to approximately 35 subjects on Day 1 of each cycle. An individual cycle of therapy will be defined as a 3-week (21-day) period. Cycles will be repeated every 3 weeks. Multiple cycles may be administered until the subject is withdrawn from therapy or until a maximum of 6 cycles are administered. Overall response rates as well as individual categories of response (CR, PR, SD, and PD) will be determined using RECIST 1.1.[28] Time-to-event endpoints, including PFS and OS will be assessed using the Kaplan Meier method.[30] Evaluation of 4- and 6-month progression-free survival will also be performed. Toxicity (adverse events) will be recorded using the NCI CTCAE, version 4.0 (published 28 May 2009).
