PHASE 1/2 STUDY OF TAS-120 IN PATIENTS WITH ADVANCED SOLID TUMORS HARBORING FGF/FGFR ABERRATIONS
The purpose of this study is to determine the safety of TAS-120 and determine the most appropriate dose for the subsequent phase 2 safety and efficacy study in patients with advanced solid tumors and multiple myeloma with genetic abnormalities. The progression of cancers is caused by a complex series of multiple genetic and molecular events leading to changes in the patients DNA. The fibroblast growth factor/fibroblast growth factor receptor (FGF/FGFR) signaling pathway is important for normal organ, vascular and skeletal development. However, FGFR gene abnormalities have been linked to various cancers. TAS-120 is a highly potent, selective small molecule inhibitor of FGFR and is therefore is being studied as a therapy for cancer.
