Further study details as provided by Novartis:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Dose limiting toxicity (DLT) rate will be measured at End-of-Cycle 1 [ Time Frame: Day 21 ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Relative dose intensity (RDI) of carboplatin and paclitaxel will be evaluated upon completion of the dose escalation within each regimen [ Time Frame: within 6 cycles (Day 126) ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • PK parameters derived from the PK profile of treatment drugs when administered alone or in combination will be evaluated during the first 6 cycles [ Time Frame: During the first 6 cycles ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
  • Overall tumor response [ Time Frame: Every 6-8 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Enrollment: 20
