Clinical Trials Using Afuresertib
Clinical trials are research studies that involve people. The clinical trials on this list are studying Afuresertib. All trials on the list are supported by NCI.
NCI’s basic information about clinical trials explains the types and phases of trials and how they are carried out. Clinical trials look at new ways to prevent, detect, or treat disease. You may want to think about taking part in a clinical trial. Talk to your doctor for help in deciding if one is right for you.
Study With Afuresertib and Paclitaxel in Platinum Resistant Ovarian
Afuresertib is an AKT inhibitor, a new class of agents under development that may provide physicians with a new clinical option to control platinum resistant ovarian cancer (PROC) progression. Afuresertib plus chemotherapy has demonstrated anti-tumor efficacy and an acceptable safety profile in patients with PROC in a published Phase I / II study. Therefore, the combination of afuresertib plus weekly paclitaxel could represent a clinically meaningful step forward in the clinical management of these difficult-to-treat patients with PROC.

Dose-Escalation and Efficacy Study of LAE001 / Prednisone Plus Afuresertib Patients With m-CRPC
The combination treatment of protein kinase B (AKT) inhibitor, afuresertib, with androgen synthesis enzyme inhibitor, LAE001, may provide an effective treatment for metastatic castration resistant prostate cancer (m-CRPC) patients who have progressed / drug resistant following prior standard care treatments of any anti-androgen. This study intends to identify the most appropriate combined doses of LAE001 / prednisone and afuresertib in m-CRPC patients who have progressive disease or are intolerant of 2 prior standard treatments of any anti-androgen or anti-androgen treatment plus chemotherapy.
