Phase 1/2, Open-Label, Dose-Escalation, Safety and Tolerability Study of INCB054329 in Subjects With Advanced Malignancies

The purpose of this study is to find out how safe and tolerable the study drug INCB054329 is in patients with advanced types of cancer (including solid tumors and blood cancers). This study will mainly answer the following: 1) the maximum dose that can be given to the patient with minimal side effects; 2) the amount of the study drug that enters and leaves the body over time and the effects it has on the body; 3) preliminary evidence of whether or not the drug has any anti-cancer effects.

A Phase 1 Study Evaluating the Safety, Pharmacology and Preliminary Activity of the Co-Administration of MM-151 and MM-121 in Heregulin Positive Cancer Patients

The study will be done in two parts. In Part 1 of the study, patients with lung, colorectal, or head and neck cancer will receive study drug MM-151 in combination with study drug MM-121. The purpose is to determine a safe dose of MM-151 plus MM-121 combination that does not cause unacceptable side effects. This is also referred to as maximum tolerated dose (MTD). MTD will be determined by evaluating the safety and tolerability of MM-151 when combined with MM-121 at different doses. In Part 2 of the study, only patients who have colorectal cancer will receive study drug MM-151 combined with study drug MM-121. The purpose is to continue to evaluate safety and tolerability of dose found in Part 1 as well as to evaluate response of patient’s body and cancer to this combination of study drugs.

Modular phase II study to link targeted therapy to patients with pathway activated tumors:Module 6 – BGJ398 for patients with tumors with FGFR genetic alterations

Researchers want to know if BGJ398 is safe and has beneficial effects in people who have different tumor types (cancer), and/or blood malignancies with a FGFR regulated 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.
