Drug Treatment Study with Radiation in Advanced Tumors

Clinical Trial Title: 
A phase I dose-escalating study of RiMO-301 with radiation in advanced tumors.
Clinical Trial Protocol ID: 
Clinical Trial Investigator Name: 
Dian Wang, MD
Clinical Trial Protocol Description: 

The purpose of this study is to determine the safety and side effects of the study drug, RiMO-301. RiMO-301 is an investigational drug, which means that it has not been approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and must be tested to see if it is a safe and effective treatment method for the disease or condition being studied. RiMO-301 is made from nanoparticle technology, intended to make radiation therapy more effective in killing cancer cells for solid tumors.

Clinical Trial Eligibility Criteria: 

In order to participate you must meet the following criteria:

  • Have a diagnosis of advanced or metastatic solid tumor not amenable to curative therapy.
  • Have a lesion that is amenable to palliative radiotherapy.
  • Have a lesion that is technically feasible to irradiation and accessible for direct intratumoral injection of nanoparticles.
  • Have a target tumor in region not in previously irradiated field.
  • Have recovered from acute toxic effects (≤ grade 1 CTCAEv4) of previous cancer treatments prior to enrollment.
  • Are at least 18 years of age.
  • Have measurable disease, defined as at least 1 tumor that fulfills the criteria for a target lesion according to RECIST 1.1. Tumors may be from 1 cm to 6 cm in size and volume is ≤ 100 cm3
  • Prior treatments for metastatic disease are permitted but may not be ongoing.
  • The recurrence or second primary must have defined bi- or uni-dimensional measurements.
  • Treatment of multiple lesions in a single patient is allowed as long as the total tumor volume does not exceed 100 cm3 and no more than 3 lesions treated in a single patient.
  • No clinical suspicion of synchronous brain metastasis. If a history of brain metastasis or if clinical symptoms warrant, brain imaging within 3 months of study enrollment.
  • Females with child bearing age should be using adequate contraceptive measures from the time of screening until 6 months after study discontinuation, should not be breast feeding and must have a negative pregnancy test prior to start of dosing.
  • Sign a study-specific informed consent form prior to study entry.
