Condition advanced solid tumor
Treatment simmitecan hydrochloride for injection
Phase phase 1
Sponsor ShangHai HaiHe Pharmaceutical
Collaborator Shanghai Institute of Materia Medica, Chinese Academy of Sciences
Start date December 2012
End date March 2016
Trial size 39 participants
Trial identifier NCT01832298, LP-101


RATIONAL: Simmitecan is an anticancer ester prodrug, which involves activation to chimmitecan. Chimmitecan,a novel CPT derivative, exhibited potent antitumor activities both in vitro and in vivo by inhibiting topoisomerase I. Also exerted comparable effects on topoisomerase I compared with topotecan and SN38 and possessed improved anticancer potency and pharmacologic profiles, compared with the clinically available CPT analogues.

PURPOSE: to determine the maximum tolerated dose, the safety profile and pharmacokinetics of Simmitecan.
