The identified RD of PM01183 + P is PM01183 2.2 mg/m2 on Day (D)1 + P 80 mg/m2 D1&8 q3w. We provide updated results after RD expansion (A), and after Bev 15 mg/kg addition on D1 (B).


RECIST v1.1 evaluable pts ≤ 75 years (y) old, with ECOG PS 0-1, adequate organ function and ≤ 3 prior advanced lines were eligible. Prior taxanes were allowed if last dosed ≥ 3 months prior; prior weekly P or NAB-P were excluded. P was discontinued after 18 weeks and pts continued on PM01183 alone (A) or plus Bev (B). Pharmacokinetics (PK) was assessed in C1.


As of April 2016, 37/12 pts were treated (cohort A/B, accordingly); 2/37 and 3/12 experienced a dose-limiting toxicity (DLT) in Cycle 1, respectively. 32/10 were evaluable for efficacy. PK results were in line with published data.

CI, confidence interval; CTCAE (v4.03), common toxicity criteria adverse reactions (related/unknown); EOC, epithelial ovarian cancer; G. grade; DOR; duration of response; NSCLC; non-small cell lung cancer; ORR, overall response rate; PSN; neurotoxicity; FN: febrile neutropenia


At the RD, PM01183/P has an acceptable safety profile and remarkable antitumor activity, even in pts previously exposed to taxanes/Bev. CSFs prophylaxis was not required at the RD. Neurotoxicity was not dose-limiting. The addition of Bev to PM01183/P RD was feasible but it seems more pts might experience DLTs in C1. No Drug-Drug Interactions were observed.
