SPOC-2012-001: Phase 1 Dose-escalating Study of MM-398 (Irinotecan Sucrosofate Liposome Injection) Plus Intravenous Cyclophosphamide in Recurrent or Refractory Pediatric Solid Tumors

Why are we doing this research?


This is a Phase 1 study of the combination of two drugs: MM-398 and Cyclophosphamide. The goal is to find the highest dose of MM-398 that can be given safely when it is used together with the chemotherapy drug Cyclophosphamide.


  • Primary Outcome Measures:
    • To determine the Maximum Tolerated Dose (MTD) of MM-398 in combination with intravenous cyclophosphamide by assessing the occurrence of dose limiting toxicities [ Time Frame: 12 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]

Study Type: Interventional

Endpoint Classification: Safety Study
Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment
Masking: Open Label
Primary Purpose: Treatment
