Breast Cancer

Safety Study of an Antisense Product in Prostate, Ovarian, NSCL, Breast or Bladder Cancer (UW07003)
A Phase I Study Evaluating a Second Generation Antisense Oligonucleotide (OGX-427) that Inhibits Heat Shock Protein 27 (Hsp 27)
Status Conditions Phase Study ID
Closed Bladder Cancer; Breast Cancer; Genitourinary Cancer; Gynecological Cancer; Lung Cancer; Ovarian Cancer; Prostate Cancer; Solid Tumors Phase I 20070773
The purpose of this study is to determine the safety and effects (both good and bad) of an experimental drug called OGX-427 in patients with prostate, ovary, breast, bladder or non-small cell lung cancer which has spread to other places in the body (metastatic cancer).

In this study we will try to find the the highest dose of OGX-427 that does not cause intolerable side effects (the maximum tolerated dose).

After finding the maximum tolerated dose, we will study the safety and effects (both good and bad) of OGX-427 when taken in combination with a chemotherapy drug called docetaxel.

Not all participants enrolled in this study will receive docetaxel.

The study drug, OGX-427, is given as an infusion through a vein in the arm about once a week. Treatment with OGX-427 will continue for about 2 – 9 months, depending on the participant’s medical condition.

Participants in this study will receive the study drug, OGX-427, at the Seattle Cancer Care Alliance (SCCA) outpatient clinic. If hospitalization is needed while in Seattle, participants will be admitted to the University of Washington Medical Center (UWMC).

After treatment has stopped, we would like to follow-up with study participants every 2 months.
