Abstract Text RO5126766, a highly selective dual Raf and MEK inhibitor, is a first-in-class tandem mitogen-activated protein kinase signaling pathway inhibitor. The objectives of this phase I study were to determine maximum-tolerated dose (MTD) and to evaluate safety, pharmacokinetics (PK), pharmacodynamics (PD), and anti-tumor activity of RO5126766 in Japanese patients with advanced solid tumors.Patients received a single oral dose of RO5126766 (0.8, 1.2, 1.8, or 2.25 mg) followed by continuous once-daily dosing at the same dosage in 28-day cycles. A 3 + 3 dose-escalation design was used. PD was evaluated by pMEK and pERK inhibition in peripheral blood mononuclear cells (PBMCs).A total of 12 patients were enrolled in cohorts of 0.8, 1.2, 1.8, and 2.25 mg/day. In the dose range tested, no dose-limiting toxicity was observed, and therefore, MTD was not defined. Main adverse events included acneiform dermatitis, creatine phosphokinase elevation, and ocular disorders. The plasma exposure of RO5126766 appeared to increase in a dose-proportional manner with a long plasma half-life (t 1/2) of 45.8-93.7 h. Following multiple dose administration, a steady-state condition was reached by Cycle 1 Day 8 (240 h). The inhibitory effects of RO5126766 on both pERK and pMEK in PBMCs increased in a dose-dependent manner. Five out of 12 patients achieved stable diseases, including a melanoma case with over 20 % shrinkage.RO5126766 has a manageable safety profile up to 2.25 mg/day once daily with a favorable PK/PD profile in Japanese patients with advanced solid tumors.


  • 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.
