Clinical Trial DRUG CMEK162AUS11
- Modular Phase II Study to Link Targeted Therapy to Patients with Pathway Activated Tumors: Module 3 - MEK162 for Patients with RAS/RAF/MEK Activated Tumors Local

- Status: COMPLETED
- Study Type: Therapeutic, Treatment
- Protocol No:.DRUG CMEK162AUS11
- The purpose of this clinical trial is to study if MEK162 is safe and has beneficial effects in people who have different tumor types (cancer), and/or blood malignancies with a RAS/RAF/MEK activated pathway. This pathway is thought to play a role in tumor cell growth as well as in the growth of new blood vessels, which supply the tumor with nutrients and oxygen.
- MEK162 is a drug that is being developed for the potential treatment of different tumor types and/or blood malignancies. MEK162 is a new type of drug that works by slowing down an important pathway (RAS/RAF/MEK) inside the cell involved in the development of certain types of cancers. This pathway (RAS/RAF/MEK) is thought to play a role in cell growth as well as in the growth of new blood vessels, which supply the tumor with nutrients and oxygen.
Some of the eligibility criteria include:
- Study participants must have a confirmed diagnosis of a select solid tumor (except for pancreatic cancer, biliary cancer, colorectal cancer, low grade serous ovarian cancer, melanoma) or hematologic malignancy.
- Participants must have had at least one prior treatment for cancer and it has returned (recurred) or it has spread beyond the initial cancer location (the cancer is metastatic and/or is locally advanced).
- Participants must have cancer for which no standard therapy options are anticipated to result in a lasting remission.
- Participants must have a tumor with a mutation in RAF, RAS, NF1 or MEK. This is determined by genetic testing.
- Description of Treatment
- In this study, a complete dosing cycle is 28 days. In each cycle, participants will take MEK162 twice a day, by mouth. Participants may continue to receive study drug unless they and/or the study doctor decide to stop the study drug dosing.
