Study Summary

This trial is testing a new drug to see if it is safe and effective in treating cancer. The drug is designed to target a protein called GSK-3β, which is found in many different types of cancer cells.

Who is the study for?
Adults with advanced or metastatic cancer, who have not responded to standard treatments or for whom no treatment improving survival by at least 3 months is available. Participants must be able to consent and follow study procedures, use effective contraception if of childbearing potential, and have adequate organ function.Check my eligibility
What is being tested?
The trial tests the safety and effectiveness of a new drug called 9-ING-41 alone or combined with other chemotherapy drugs (like Gemcitabine) in patients whose cancers haven't improved after standard treatment. It's a Phase 1/2 study targeting GSK-3β, an enzyme involved in cancer cell growth.See study design
What are the potential side effects?
Potential side effects include those commonly associated with chemotherapy such as fatigue, nausea, hair loss (except alopecia), increased risk of infection due to low blood counts, possible allergic reactions to the drug components, and other organ-specific inflammation.
