Trial Phase

Phase I

Trial Purpose and Description

Trial Purpose

Primary Objectives:

  • To evaluate the safety and tolerability of MPDL3280A administered by intravenous (IV) infusion every 3 weeks (q3w) to patients with locally advanced or metastatic solid tumors
  • To determine the maximum tolerated dose (MTD) and to evaluate the dose-limiting toxicities (DLTs) of MPDL3280A when administered as a single agent to patients by IV infusion q3w
  • To identify a recommended Phase II dose of MPDL3280A
