The pediatric preclinical testing program previously demonstrated activity of eribulin in osteosarcoma patient-derived xenograft (PDX) models. The phase 2 trial in patients with relapsed osteosarcoma failed to meet response endpoints. Eribulin was evaluated in the original and an expanded set of PDX models and tested at multiple dose levels and schedules to evaluate dose-response. Maximal response was observed at the highest dose, consistent with prior results. The alternative schedule generated similar responses. We demonstrate steep dose-response for eribulin in osteosarcoma PDX models, implying that any deviation from achievement of effective concentrations may have a significant impact on activity.
