  • Research on using new therapy for treating advanced tumors

    This research is about a new medicine named INCB123667. It may help people who have serious cancers that have spread to other parts of the body. The trial has two parts. Part 1 will find out the best dose to use and if it causes any side effects. Part 2 will see if the medicine helps shrink the cancer cells. Doctors will check for side effects the first time the medicine is given. If side effects are severe, the medicine dose will be reduced. The timing of when the drug is given may also need to be changed. Doctors will measure the highest amount of the drug in the blood and how fast it reaches this level. They’ll also see how long it stays in the system and how quickly the body gets rid of it. Successful treatment would mean the cancer stops growing or shrinks.
