Abstract Text Background Tanibirumab is a fully human monoclonal antibody to vascular endothelial growth factor receptor 2 (VEGFR-2). We conducted a first-in-human phase I study of tanibirumab in patients with solid tumors refractory to standard chemotherapy. Primary endpoints were evaluating safety, pharmacokinetics (PKs), estimating maximum-tolerated dose (MTD) and recommended phase II dose (RP2D). Methods We designed our study to escalate tanibirumab at 9 different dose levels with a 3 + 3 method and tanibirumab (1-28 mg/kg) was administered intravenously on D1, 8, 15 in 28-day courses. Dose limiting toxicities (DLTs) were only assessed during the first cycle of treatment and response evaluation was performed every 2 cycles. The effects of tanibirumab on several angiogenic factors were analyzed. Results From October 2011 to September 2013, a total of 26 patients with refractory solid tumors were enrolled. The median age was 58 years (range, 27-75) and 20 patients were male. The most common tumor type was colorectal cancer (N = 19) and seven patients had a history of previous bevacizumab treatment. As hemangioma continued to occur, the final dose level, 28 mg/kg, was not performed. DLTs were not found, and the MTD was confirmed to be 24 mg/kg. Hemangioma was observed in 16 patients (61.5%), but all were grade 1-2 and disappeared after discontinuation of the study drug. Among the 18 patients in the efficacy set, no objective response was observed, but 11 patients showed stable disease. PKs were characterized by dose-dependent linear exposure and the mean trough concentrations exceeded biologically relevant target levels at 12 mg/kg and above. Serum VEGF, soluble VEGFR-2, and PlGF increased at the 4 mg/kg dose level and above. Conclusions Treatment with tanibirumab showed a tolerable toxicity profile and modest clinical efficacy in patients with refractory solid tumors. A phase II trial of tanibirumab is ongoing now.


  • Case insensitive filtering will display rows where any text in any cell matches the filter term
  • Simple literal full or partial string matches
  • Separate multiple filter terms with a spaces, order doesn't matter (a b c and c b a are equivalent )
  • Filtering will only apply to rows that are already loaded on the page, filtering has no impact on query parameters
  • Use quotes to match a longer phrase which contains spaces "mtor c1483f"


  • Generally, the default sort order for tables is set to be first column ascending, however, specific tables may set a different default sort order.
  • Click on any column header arrows to sort by that column
  • Hold down the Shift key and click multiple columns to sort by more than one column, be sure to set ascending or descending order for a given column, before moving on to the next column.
