Study Design

Endpoint classification safety study
Intervention model single group assignment
Masking open label
Primary purpose treatment
Open label administration of SNX-5422 capsules every other day (QOD) for 21 days of a 28 day cycle. Dose escalation will be based on safety outcomes defined as 1 or less dose limiting toxicities during the first 28 day cycle at any dose level. During the dose escalation phase, subjects will receive carboplatin and paclitaxel once every 21 days for a total of 4 courses. During the maintenance phase, SNX-5422 at the MTD will be dosed every other day (QOD) for 21 days of a 28 day cycle.
Capsule dosed every other day for 21 days out of a 28 day cycle. Dose escalation based on safety. Maintenance doses at the maximum tolerated dose.

Primary Outcomes

Number of patients with dose limiting toxicities
time frame: First 28 day cycle

Secondary Outcomes

Number of patients with adverse events as a measure of tolerability
time frame: Day 28 of each cycle
Changes in ECG, vital signs, laboratory or physical examination
time frame: Day 28 of each cycle
Tumor response
time frame: Every 12 weeks

Eligibility Criteria

Additional Information

Official title A Phase 1, Open-label, Dose-escalation Study of SNX 5422 Plus Carboplatin and Paclitaxel in Subjects With Selected Solid Tumors.
Description Heat shock protein 90 (Hsp90) chaperone proteins stabilize well over 200 different known client proteins helping them to fold correctly as they take up their rightful positions in the cell. Inhibitors of the chaperone protein Hsp90 are of current interest because of the central role of Hsp90 in the maturation and maintenance of numerous proteins that are critical for tumor cell viability and growth. SNX-5422 is a pro-drug of SNX-2112, a potent, highly selective, small-molecule inhibitor of the molecular chaperone heat shock protein 90 (Hsp90). The study will determine the maximum tolerated dose (MTD) of SNX-5422 when combined with carboplatin plus paclitaxel in selected solid tumors and assess the safety and efficacy of SNX-5422 alone dosed at the MTD as maintenance therapy in selected solid tumors treatment.
