Clinical trials are an important way to improve treatment for people with cancer. While most are continuing during the COVID-19 pandemic, the period of time that clinical trials are available and recruiting may change quickly. If you would like to get involved in a clinical trial, speak to your treatment team or the health service where the clinical trial is being undertaken, to confirm it is open and appropriate for you. For cancer information and support, call Cancer Council's experienced cancer nurses on 13 11 20 Monday to Friday from 9am-5pm.

Trial Overview Read MoreRead more

This phase I trial is evaluating an intravenously (in the vein) administered drug (APG-1387) in patients with advanced solid cancers or Lymphoma.

This trial is treating multiple types of cancer including advanced solid cancers or Lymphoma.

This is a systemic therapy trial.

You may be able to join this trial if:

  • You have had treatment but your cancer has gotten worse or has not responded to the treatment you have been given.
  • Your cancer has spread to other parts of the body.

You may be excluded from this trial if:

  • You have a certain disease or psychological condition.

Clinical trials have complex eligibility criteria - talk to your doctor about your interest in this trial.

A phase 1, open label, multi-center, dose escalation study of the safety, tolerability, pharmacokinetic and pharmacodynamic properties of intravenously administered APG-1387 in patients with advanced solid tumors and lymphomas

This study aims to establish the safety and best tolerated dose of a new investigational drug called APG-1387 in participants with advanced cancer. Who is it for? You may be eligible to join this study if you are aged 18 years or more and have been diagnosed with an advanced solid tumour or lymphoma. Study details All participants in this study will be treated with a new investigational drug called APG-1387. This drug blocks tumour growth by promoting cell death (a process called apoptosis) in cancer cells and attempts to stop the cancer cells from spreading further throughout the body. This drug has not previously been tested in humans. APG-1387 has undergone extensive testing in various animal models (including rats and monkeys) and human cancer cell models in the laboratory. APG-1387 will be administered via intravenous (IV) infusion (i.e. directly into the vein) on Days 1, 8 and 15 of study participation. The first group of participants will receive a dose of 0.3 mg of APG-1387, and if tolerated the dose will be increased for subsequent patient groups. Participants will be regularly monitored until they reach their endpoint (disease progression, intolerable toxicity or withdrawal of consent) in order to determine safety, tolerability and preliminary efficacy of treatment. The results from this study will be analysed to see if it is worthwhile for this new drug to be tested in future studies involving larger numbers of cancer participants.
