The purpose of this first in human clinical study, which took place at the Chaim Sheba Medical Center in Tel-Hashomer, Israel, was to evaluate the safety and determine the maximal tolerated dose of CT-011 single intravenous administration in cancer patients. The safety profile of CT-011 was evaluated in 17 patients suffering from advanced-stage hematological malignancies. CT-011 was given in a single 5h IV infusion at escalating doses. One patient, at the lowest level, was re-enrolled five months subsequent to the first administration at a higher dose level. Results showed that CT-011 was safe and well tolerated with no treatment-related toxicities. Common adverse events included minimal allergic reactions and low grade fever. No single maximal tolerated dose was found in this study.
