Summary

RATIONALE: Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as paclitaxel albumin-stabilized nanoparticle formulation, work in different ways to stop the growth of tumor cells, either by killing the cells or by stopping them from dividing. Everolimus may stop the growth of tumor cells by blocking some of the enzymes needed for cell growth and by blocking blood flow to the tumor. Giving paclitaxel albumin-stabilized nanoparticle formulation together with everolimus may kill more tumor cells.

PURPOSE: This phase I/II trial is studying the side effects and best dose of everolimus when given together with paclitaxel albumin-stabilized nanoparticle formulation and to see how well it works in treating women with locally advanced or metastatic breast cancer.

(Experimental)
Phase I: Abraxane will be given by IV for 30 minutes on the first day of the first three weeks of each 28 day cycle. RAD001 will be given by tablet. The first group of patients will receive RAD001 once daily depending on side effects seen drug could be increased later to twice a day for a 28 day cycle. Once a safe and effective drug range is established, the study moves into Phase II. Phase II: The maximum tolerated dose (established in Phase I) will be given as scheduled below and we will measure the effectiveness of the study drug combination. Abraxane will be given by IV (intravenous infusion) for 30 minutes on the first day of the first three weeks of each 28 day cycle (Day 1, Day 8, and Day 15 of each cycle). RAD001 will be given by tablet based on the dose established in the Phase I part of the study.
everolimus RAD001
Orally administered RAD001 will be initiated at 5 mg daily. Each cohort Phase I: administration will proceed based on escalation criteria. RAD001 will be given initially once every day. Doses will be adjusted per the dosing regimen for each cohort throughout the Phase I portion of the study
abraxane nab paclitaxel
Doses of Abraxane will be calculated on Day 1 of each cycle using the patient's actual weight in the determination of body surface area. A variance of 5% of the calculated total dose will be allowed.

Official title Phase I/II Study of Weekly Abraxane and RAD001 in Women With Locally Advanced or Metastatic Breast Cancer. A Study of the Cancer Institute of New Jersey Oncology Group (CINJOG)
Principal investigator Deborah L. Toppmeyer, MD
Description OBJECTIVES: Primary - To determine the maximum tolerated dose and recommended phase II dose of everolimus when administered in combination with paclitaxel albumin-stabilized nanoparticle formulation in women with locally advanced or metastatic breast cancer. (Phase I) - To determine the antitumor activity of this regimen, as measured by clinical tumor response according to RECIST criteria, in these patients. (Phase II) Secondary - To determine the safety and tolerability of everolimus when administered at the recommended phase II dose in combination with paclitaxel albumin-stabilized nanoparticle formulation in these patients. OUTLINE: This is a multicenter, phase I dose-escalation study of everolimus followed by a phase II study. Patients receive paclitaxel albumin-stabilized nanoparticle formulation IV over 30 minutes on days 1, 8, and 15. Patients also receive oral everolimus once daily or once every other day on days 1-28. Courses repeat every 28 days in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity. After completion of study treatment, patients are followed up periodically.
