The main objective of the study is to determine the recommended dose of PM1183 in Japanese patients. Furthermore, the secondary objective will be to evaluate the safety profile, to obtain preliminary information on the antitumor activity along with pharmacokinetic characteristics of PM1183 in Japanese patients when compared to Caucasians.

The study population has to be patients born in Japan or descendants from both Japanese parents that suffer disease progression according to the Response Criteria in Solid Tumors (RECIST v1.1).

As Dr Arturo Soto, director of Clinical Development of PharmaMar's Oncology Business Unit, explains "Three clinical sites in Japan will participate in the trial; the number of patients that are to be included will depend on the tolerability and activity observed in PM1183 and the dose level required to identify the recommended dose in this population".
