IDB is administered continuously starting at 400 mg BID. CAP • ≥18 years of age. ECOG performance score ≤2; life expectancy ≥12 weeks is administered for 2 weeks with 1 week rest, starting at 875 mg/m2 BID.
IDB and CAP are escalated to the highest planned dose level (not MTD): Bladder and Prostate Cancer
IDB 600 mg BID & CAP 1000 mg/m2 BID. Efficacy is evaluated every 9 weeks
using RECIST. In the xenograft model indibulin is administered at dose levels MX-1 Xenograft
from 12 to 28.7 mg/kg/day to nude mice carrying MX-1 breast carcinoma.
