A Study of Ramucirumab (LY3009806) Given by Injection Under the Skin in Participants With Advanced Cancer

A Phase 1, Nonrandomized, Open-Label Investigation of Subcutaneous Ramucirumab Administration in Participants With Advanced Solid Tumors


Lead Sponsor: Eli Lilly and Company

Source Eli Lilly and Company
Brief Summary

The purpose of this study in participants with advanced cancer is to learn more about the safety of ramucirumab when given by injection under the skin (subcutaneous injection). The study will also measure how much ramucirumab gets into the bloodstream and how long it takes the body to get rid of it.
