 In April 2015, the affiliation of the department of experimental therapeutics was updated from the NCC-EPOC (cf. the Exploratory Oncology Research & Clinical Trial Center) to the NCC-Hospital. The goal of this department is to perform initial clinical evaluation of promising new anti-cancer compounds emerging from the laboratory in phase I trials. The staff consists of specialists from various oncology fields (i.e., thoracic oncology, breast & medical oncology, gastro-intestinal oncology, hepato-biliary & pancreatic oncology, and immune-oncology).

The Team and What We Do

 This department plays a key role in new anti-cancer drug development in Japan as well as in Asia. The top priority is to conduct FIH trials, and we also perform phase I trials for solid tumors (i.e., all-comers). Recently, we have joined the global phase I trials to accelerate new drug development in Japan. Web- or teleconferences are held with EU and US sites, and we have been discussing patient enrollment as well as further developmental strategies. Routine web-conferences are also held between the NCC-hospital (Tokyo) and the NCC-East hospital (Chiba) every Friday morning, and we share information about adverse events, patient enrollment and refer the candidates to each other to accelerate enrollment. Nowadays, most of the phase I trials (i.e., first in Japanese phase I trials, first in human trials) in Japan are conducted at the NCC-hospital and NCC-East hospital with firm collaboration.

Research activities

 The elucidation of the proof of concept (POC) is essential in new anti-cancer drug development especially in early phases, so we conduct several translational research (TR) projects in collaboration with associated research institutes. Also, we are conducting TR with the pharmaceutical industry to discover new targets for anti-immune therapy using human tissue (tumor and normal tissue) samples. To facilitate the POC analysis in the phase I trials, a phase I biobank study was launched in 2018.

Clinical trials

 In fiscal 2018, 45 phase I trials including 18 FIH trials were conducted (Table 1).

 In 2018, the 3rd NCCH Workshop on Methods in Oncology Phase I trials and Translational Research was held on 29 July at the NCC-Tsukiji campus.
