Description of intervention(s) / exposure
RX108 will be administered as a two hour IV infusion, and the starting dose will be 0.02 mg/m2/day.

Outcomes
Primary outcome [1] 295468 0
To evaluate the safety and tolerability of single and multiple doses of RX108 administered by intravenous (IV) infusion to patients with locally advanced or metastatic solid tumours.
Outcomes will be assessed via: up yo three measurable and evaluable lesions should be assessed and documented, using physical examination and image based evaluation.
Screening assessments will include Computed Tomorgraphy (CT) scans with oral and IV contrast of the chest, abdomen, and pelvis, and a brain scan (CT or Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI)). Bone scans and CT scan of neck should also be performed if clinically indicated.. Disease status will be assessed using Response Evaluation Criteria in Solid Tumours (RECIST) Version 1.1. Other methods of assessment of measurable disease as per RECIST may be used.
Adverse events assessment: medical and scientific judgment will be exercised in deciding whether reporting is appropriate in other situations, such as important medical events that may not be immediately life threatening or result in death or hospitalization but may jeopardize the patient or may require medical or surgical intervention.
Timepoint [1] 295468 0
Baseline and 30 days and 7 months after intervention commencement
Primary outcome [2] 296128 0
To determine the Maximum Tolerated Dose (MTD) of RX108 if possible; if an MTD is not reached, an optimum biological dose will be determined (after the safety review committee (SRC) and Investigators discuss the optimal balance between the dose (pharmacokinetic (PK) parameters), toxicity and biomarker studies confirming target effect). MTD will be determined by the SRC, reviewing the chart and AE log.

Baseline and 30 days and 7 months after intervention commencement
Secondary outcome [1] 315644 0
To characterize the PK of single doses of RX108 administered by IV infusion in patients with locally advanced or metastatic solid tumours. Outcome will be assessed via the PK blood sample collection.

Summary
Brief summary
This study will determine the safety and pharmacokinetics of the investigational drug RX108 in patients with advanced or metastatic solid tumours. Who is it for? You may be eligible to join this study if you are aged 18 years or above and have been diagnosed with an incurable, locally advanced or metastatic solid tumour that has progressed or failed at least one prior systemic therapy or have refused systemic treatment. Study details All participants will receive the investigational drug RX108 through intravenous infusion at a low dose and will be escalated. Each participant will only receive a single dose, depending on the cohort into which they are recruited. The study will use an accelerated dose escalation design using single patient cohorts until a single related toxicity of Grade = 3 or a Dose Limiting Toxicity (DLT) is observed. Safety and tolerability of RX108 will be assessed by such as physical examination, vital signs, ECG, and clinical
laboratory testing at 30 days and 7 months post intervention commencement. Maximum tolerated dose will be determined via the safety review committee (SRC) and Investigators review the optimal balance between the dose (pharmacokinetic (PK) parameters), toxicity and biomarker studies confirming target effect. Participants will be followed-up until 7 months post intervention commencement to investigate potential biomarkers for RX108.
