Abstract:


Background/Objective: With the increasing interest in natural products a phase I open label study of OMN54 (Aneustat™) in patients with advanced malignancies was initiated to determine toxicity, maximum tolerated dose (MTD), dose limiting toxicities (DLT), and pharmacokinetics (PK). OMN54 is a multitargeted agent, combining three Chinese botanicals; Ganoderma lucidium, Salvia miltiorrhiza and Scuteliaria barbata.

Methods: Eligible patients (pts) were >18 years of age with advanced solid tumors, able to swallow oral capsules, ECOG performance status < 2, measurable disease as defined by RECIST 1.1 and adequate organ function.

Results: Twenty-two patients were enrolled in 6 dose levels, 2 with daily dosing and 4 with twice daily dosing ranging from 1 to 5 grams daily. All were evaluable for toxicity and 20 for response. No treatment related dose limiting toxicities (DLTs) were reported and the recommended phase II dose (RP2D) was determined to be 2.5 g twice daily. Seven adverse events in 5 patients were reported as possibly drug related; 6 were GI toxicity and 1 was a skin disorder. All were Grade 1 except one Grade 2 vomiting. No RECIST responses were seen. Six pts were treated with > 2 cycles; one for 8 cycles. Four patients had reductions in TGF –β and EGF, exploratory biomarkers possibly suggestive of a drug effect. Plasma half-lives of 1 -2 hours were noted for all parent drug chemical markers with no accumulation over time.

Conclusion: OMN54 was well tolerated with no DLTs observed. Further studies at the RP2D will assess the biological activity.
