PM01183 is a new anticancer drug. Single agent efficacy is reported in MBC and in ovarian cancer, myelosuppression being a dose-limiting toxicity (DLT) in phase I studies. A recommended dose (RD) for PM01183 given on D 1 and 8 with XEL was previously defined. We explored a simplified schedule where PM01183 is given on D1 q3wk only.


Adult MBC, CRC or PaC pts, ≤ 75 years (y) old, with ECOG PS 0-1, adequate major organ function and


As of April 2016, 65 eligible pts were treated, 64/63 were evaluable for DLT/efficacy: 25/22/16 had MBC/CRC and PaC, respectively; 40% were males, median age was 57 y (r: 29-74) and ECOG PS= 1 in 42%. MBC pts had a median of 1 prior chemotherapy lines, CRC/PaC had 2. RD was defined as PM01183 2.2 mg/m2 D1+ XEL 1650 mg/m2 b.i.d. D1-14 q3wk. At the RD, 3 of 35 (9%) evaluable pts had DLT, all three were lack of compliance due to myelosuppression. At the RD, 14/3% of pts had grade (G) 4 neutropenia or thrombocytopenia, respectively; none had febrile neutropenia or any G4 non-hematological toxicity; G3 fatigue or hypertension occurred once, each. G1/2 toxicities in ≥10% at the RD were: nausea, diarrhea, vomiting, fatigue, mucositis and HFS. Efficacy: 12/25 MBC pts responded for a 48% response rate (95%CI: 28-69%), including 3/8 with triple negative tumors. Median TTP in MBC is 26+ wk (95%CI: 16-75), 10 pts are ongoing as May 2016. PM01183 pharmacokinetics was unaffected by XEL administration.


The combination of PM01183 on D1 with XEL is feasible and has a favorable safety profile. Durable responses occurred in half of MBC pts, confirmatory studies are warranted. Updated data will be presented.
