TAK-701 is a humanized antibody that binds hepatocyte growth factor (HGF), thus suppressing c-Met transduced signaling and c-Met dependent proliferation and migration of tumor cells. Six childhood solid tumor xenografts were selected for evaluating TAK-701 based on immunochemical detection of HGF/c-Met autocrine signaling [i.e., pMet(Tyr1349) and HGF positive]. TAK-701 was tested using a dose of 30mg/kg administered by the intraperitoneal (IP) route twice weekly for 4 weeks. TAK-701 did not induce significant differences in EFS distribution in treated tumors compared to control tumors. Objective responses were not observed in any of the tested solid tumor xenografts.
