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 trying to understand the safety of a new targeted therapy (PMR-116) in people with advanced solid cancers.
 

This trial is treating patients with advanced solid cancers.

This is a systemic therapy trial.

You may be able to join this trial if:

  • You are able to swallow medication by mouth.
  • Your cancer has not spread to other parts of the body.
  • 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.
  • You have had certain treatments, surgical procedures or drugs.

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

Scientific Title

Investigating the safety and tolerability of PMR-116 in Patients with Advanced Malignancies

Commercial Sponsor

Pimera Australia Pty Ltd

Summary

This trial will be conducted across two parts. In the first part (Dose Escalation), participants will receive multiple doses of PMR-116 (administered orally), to be taken at set times throughout a 28-day treatment cycle. If this appears safe, additional participants in a second cohort will receive an increased dose of PMR-116 to be taken at set times throughout a 28-day cycle. Up to 5 increasing doses will be investigated in separate treatment cohorts until the maximum safe dose has been determined. In the second part of the study (Dose Expansion), a new cohort of participants will receive multiple doses of the maximum safe dose of PMR-116 to be taken at set times throughout a 28-day cycle. Participants in each part of the study will be asked to provide a sample of their tumour (taken via a biopsy) prior to starting PMR-116, and those in the second part will also be asked to provide a sample after 22 days after starting treatment. It is hoped this research will determine the maximum dose of PMR-116 that can be administered safely without causing severe reactions. Once the dose of PMR-116 has been determined, a larger trial investigating the efficacy of PMR-116 as a treatment for cancer patients with advanced solid tumours may proceed.
