This is a Phase 1 safety and dose escalation study to define the maximum tolerated dose (MTD) and identify the dose limiting toxicities (DLT) following IV administration of GPX-150 once every 3 weeks. Escalating doses starting at the dose of 14 mg/m2 and increasing to the dose of 265 mg/m2 will be administered IV once every 3 weeks for up to 8 cycles of treatment. Patients who have previously received an anthracycline are limited to 4 cycles of treatment.


Inclusion Criteria: - Patient is at least 18 years of age. - Patient has a histologically or cytologically confirmed diagnosis of solid tumor. - Patient has progressive disease - Patient is considered to have incurable disease and is not a candidate for known effective systemic treatment. - Patient has a performance status of at least 70% on Karnofsky scale. - Patient has not received any cytotoxic chemotherapy or other investigational agents within 4 weeks of the first treatment in this study (6 weeks for mitomycin or nitrosourea). Patients should receive supportive care as indicated. Patients currently receiving blood transfusions or erythropoiesis-stimulating agents should continue receiving them as per the ASCO guidelines. Patients requiring palliative radiation therapy should complete their course of radiation treatment 4 weeks before the first study treatment. - Patient may have received unlimited prior hormonal therapy, but this must have been completed at least 4 weeks prior to the first study treatment, and progressive disease documented following withdrawal of hormone therapy. Patient with hormone-refractory prostate cancer on long acting LHRH agents may continue on these agents. - Patient may have received unlimited prior biological or immunological therapy without limitation, but this must have been completed at least 4 weeks prior to the first study treatment. - Patient has fully recovered from any previous surgery (at least 4 weeks since major surgery) and radiation therapy (at least 4 weeks since the end of treatment). - Patient has recovered from reversible toxicity of prior therapy. Permanent and stable side effects or changes are acceptable if ≤ to Grade 2. - Patient has adequate hematological function as defined by an ANC ≥ 1500, platelets ≥ 100,000/µL, and hemoglobin ≥9.0 gm/dL. - Patient has adequate organ function defined as a bilirubin ≤ 1.5 times ULN, AST and ALT < 2.5 times the upper limit of normal (ULN, 5.0 times the ULN with liver involvement), serum creatinine <2.0 dL or estimated creatinine clearance ≥ 50 ml/min. - Patient has an ejection fraction of 110% of the lower limit of institutional normal as determined by resting MUGA scan. - Patient has an O2 Sat by pulse oximetry of at least 90%. - Patient has a negative pregnancy test prior to study entry if premenopausal or if less than 12 months after menopause. Premenopausal patients must use a medically effective form of contraception during the treatment period. - Patient is willing and able to comply with all study protocol requirements. The patient or a legally authorized representative must fully understand all elements of the informed consent and have signed the informed consent according to institutional and federal regulatory requirements. Exclusion Criteria: - Patient is pregnant or breast-feeding. - Patient has a history of hypersensitivity to anthracyclines. - Patient has received a cumulative dose of doxorubicin that exceeds 300 mg/m2 or a cumulative dose of epirubicin that exceeds 540 mg/m2. - Patient has received an anthracycline within 6 months prior to entry into the study. - Patient has brain metastases unless asymptomatic and stable off glucocorticoids. - Prior history of CHF, myocardial infarction within 6 months prior to enrollment, active ischemic heart disease, or uncontrolled hypertension. - Patient requires active medical therapy for CHF or arrhythmia. - Patients with > Grade l motor neuropathy or > Grade 2 sensory neuropathy. - Patient has participated in a study of any investigational drug within 4 weeks prior to the first study treatment. - Patient has received chemotherapy, hormonal therapy (with the exception of LHRH for prostate cancer), immunotherapy, biological therapy, or radiotherapy within 4 weeks prior to the first study treatment. - Patient has had major surgery within 4 weeks of the first study treatment. - Patient has received G-CSF or GM-CSF within 4 weeks prior to first dose of study drug. - Patient has baseline laboratory values that are outside normal ranges or those listed (see Inclusion Criteria), which are clinically significant as determined by the investigator. - Patient has a serious, concurrent medical condition that would limit the patient's ability to complete or comply with the study requirements. - Patient is unable or unwilling to comply with the contraceptive requirements during the study period. - Patient has lymphoma.
