Abstract Text Fibroblast growth factor receptors (FGFR) are a family of transmembrane receptor tyrosine kinases involved in regulating cellular processes. FGFR mutations are implicated in oncogenesis, representing therapeutic potential in the form of FGFR inhibitors. This phase I, first-in-human study in Japan evaluated safety and tolerability of E7090, a potent selective FGFR1-3 inhibitor, in patients with advanced solid tumors. Dose escalation (daily oral dose of 1-180 mg) was carried out to assess dose-limiting toxicity (DLT), maximum tolerated dose, and pharmacokinetics. Pharmacodynamic markers (serum phosphate, fibroblast growth factor 23, and 1,25-(OH)2 -vitamin D) were also evaluated. A total of 24 patients refractory to standard therapy or for whom no appropriate treatment was available were enrolled. No DLT were observed up to the 140-mg dose; one patient in the 180-mg cohort experienced a DLT (increased aspartate aminotransferase/alanine aminotransferase, grade 3). The maximum tolerated dose was not reached. Dose-dependent increases in the maximum concentration and area under the curve from time 0 to the last measurable concentration were observed up to 180 mg. Dose-dependent increases were observed in all pharmacodynamic markers and plateaued at 100-140 mg, indicating sufficient FGFR pathway inhibition at doses ≥100 mg. In conclusion, E7090 showed a manageable safety profile with no DLT at doses ≤140 mg. Maximum tolerated dose was not determined. The recommended dose for the follow-up expansion part, restricted to patients with tumors harboring FGFR alterations, was determined as 140 mg, once daily.


  • Case insensitive filtering will display rows if any text in any cell matches the filter term
  • Use simple literal full or partial string matches
  • Separate multiple filter terms with a space. Any order may be used (i. e. 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 on a longer phrase with spaces (i.e. "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.
