2018-09-10

About the Phase I study:

Oncoral has been evaluated in an investigator sponsored Phase I trial at the Department of Oncology at Herlev Hospital in Denmark. The study was a dose-escalating safety, tolerability and pharmacokinetics study of orally administered Oncoral in adult patients with advanced solid tumours. The objectives of the study were to determine the safety, tolerability and maximum tolerated dose of Oncoral given as single agent and when administered in combination with the oral chemotherapeutic drug capecitabine. Additional objectives were to determine any objective tumour response or stable disease, and to describe the pharmacokinetics of Oncoral given as single agent. A total of 25 patients were enrolled in the part of the study with Oncoral given as single agent.

The results of the combination study with capecitabine will be presented at a later stage.
