The primary objective of this study is to determine the objective response rate (complete and partial response) for patients who receive LY573636 after one prior systemic treatment for unresectable or metastatic melanoma.

Official Title

A Phase 2 Study of LY573636 Administered as an Intravenous Infusion on Day 1 of a 21-Day Cycle as Second-Line Treatment in Patients With Unresectable or Metastatic Melanoma


Malignant Melanoma

Study Type


Study Design

Treatment, Non-Randomized, Open Label, Historical Control, Single Group Assignment, Safety/Efficacy Study

Further Details

Primary Outcome Measures:

  • Objective response rate (complete response and partial response). CT-scans will be performed before the first dose and then after every other cycle of treatment.

Secondary Outcome Measures:

  • Progression-free survival
  • Clinical response rate (complete response plus partial response plus stable disease)
  • Pharmacokinetics
  • Overall survival time
  • Duration of overall objective response
  • Duration of stable disease
  • Safety
  • Health-related Quality of Life
  • Assessments will be completed at every 21-day cycle during active treatment and every 60-days during the post-treatment follow-up period.

Study Start

November 2006; Expected completion: February 2008
