Condition solid tumor
Treatment morab-004
Phase phase 1
Sponsor Eisai Co., Ltd.
Start date December 2012
End date June 2016
Trial size 46 participants
Trial identifier NCT01773434, MORAb-004-J081-103


This is a multicenter, multiple doses, open-label Phase 1 study of MORAb-004 in subjects with solid tumors. Subjects may have any solid tumor without intracranial involvement or metastases that has failed standard chemotherapy.

This study will be conducted in 2 parts: 1) Part 1 will be the dose escalation portion of this study to assess the tolerability and the safety profile of MORAb-004. Dose will escalate in different cohorts as follows: 2, 4, 8 and 12 mg/kg weekly dosing each as a 4-week cycle with no intra-subject escalation. Individual participants may have additional cycles at the same dose until disease progression unless the participants meet the discontinuation criteria.

2) Part 2 will comprise cohort expansions to further characterize the safety and tolerability of MORAb-004 and to assess preliminary efficacy and the pharmacokinetic/pharmacodynamic relationship of MORAb-004 in gastric cancer and hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC). Three dose levels will be expanded based on the safety profile that was obtained in the dose escalation portion of this study (Part 1): 4 mg/kg (administered on a weekly basis), 8 mg/kg (administered on a weekly basis) and 12 mg/kg (administered every OTHER week).

Primary purpose treatment
MORAb-004 5 mg/mL is administered as an intravenous infusion (IV) in an escalating dose design and will not be escalated or de-escalated in individual participants. Part 1 (Dose escalation): 4 weekly administrations of 2, 4, 8, and 12 mg/kg in four different cohorts on Days 1, 8, 15, and 22 of a 4-week cycle (28 days). Part 2 (Cohort expansion): 4 and 8 mg/kg on Days 1, 8, 15, and 22 of a 4-week cycle (28 days) and 12 mg/kg biweekly administration on Days 1 and 15 of a 4-week cycle in different cohorts. The dosages in Part 2 can be amended considering the results of Part 1.
