SC16LD6.5 in Recurrent Small Cell Lung Cancer (NCT01901653)
The purpose of this study is to assess the safety and tolerability of SC16LD6.5, also known as rovalpituzumab tesirine (Rova-T), at different dose levels in patients with small cell lung cancer whose cancer has progressed or recurred following standard chemotherapy. Once a safe and tolerable dose is determined, the anti-cancer activity of SC16LD6.5 will be assessed by measuring the extent of tumor shrinkage. SC16LD6.5 is an antibody-drug conjugate or ADC).
The antibody (SC16) targets a protein that appears to be expressed on the surface of most small cell lung cancers that have been assessed using an immunohistochemical assay. The drug, D6.5, is a very potent form of chemotherapy, specifically a DNA-damaging agent, that is cell cycle independent. ADC’s theoretically provide more precise delivery of chemotherapy to cancer cells, possibly improving effectiveness relative to toxicities.
