Purpose: First-in-human phase I trial to determine the safety, pharmacokinetics, and antitumor activity of BIND-014, a novel, tumor prostate-specific membrane antigen (PSMA)-targeted nanoparticle, containing docetaxel. Experimental Design: Patients with advanced solid tumors received BIND-014 every three weeks (n = 28) or weekly (n = 27), with dose levels ranging from 3.5 to 75 mg/m2 and 15 to 45 mg/m2, respectively. Results: BIND-014 was generally well tolerated, with no unexpected toxicities. The most common drug-related toxicities (>20% of patients) on either schedule included neutropenia, fatigue, anemia, alopecia, and diarrhea. BIND-014 demonstrated a dose-linear pharmacokinetic profile, distinct from docetaxel, with prolonged persistence of docetaxel-encapsulated circulating nanoparticles. Of the 52 patients evaluable for response, one had a complete response (cervical cancer on the every three week schedule) and five had partial responses (ampullary adenocarcinoma, non-small cell lung, and prostate cancers on the every-three-week schedule, and breast and gastroesophageal cancers on the weekly schedule). Responses were noted in both PSMA-detectable and -undetectable tumors. Conclusions: BIND-014 was generally well tolerated, with predictable and manageable toxicity and a unique pharmacokinetic profile compared with conventional docetaxel. Clinical activity was noted in multiple tumor types. The recommended phase II dose of BIND-014 is 60 mg/m2 every three weeks or 40 mg/m2 weekly.
