Trial identifier NCT01643278, 12-083, 9172, CDR0000737378, NCI-2012-01165, P30CA008748, U01CA069856

Summary

This phase I trial studies the side effects and best dose of dasatinib when given together with ipilimumab in treating patients with gastrointestinal stromal tumors or other sarcomas that cannot be removed by surgery or have spread to other places in the body. Dasatinib may stop the growth of tumor cells by blocking some of the enzymes needed for cell growth. Monoclonal antibodies, such as ipilimumab, can block tumor growth in different ways by targeting certain cells. Giving dasatinib together with ipilimumab may be a better treatment for patients with gastrointestinal stromal tumors or other sarcomas.

note: patients with hyperbilirubinemia clinically consistent with an inherited disorder of bilirubin metabolism (e.g., Gilbert syndrome) will be eligible at the discretion of the treating physician and/or the principal investigator - Aspartate aminotransferase (AST) (serum glutamic oxaloacetic transaminase [SGOT])/alanine aminotransferase (ALT) (serum glutamate pyruvate transaminase [SGPT]) =< 2.5 x institutional upper limit of normal - Creatinine =< 1.5 x institutional upper limit of normal OR creatinine clearance >= 60 mL/min/1.73 m^2 for patients with creatinine levels above institutional normal - Women of child-bearing potential and men must agree to use adequate contraception (hormonal or barrier method of birth control; abstinence) prior to study entry and for the duration of study participation; should a woman become pregnant or suspect she is pregnant while she or her partner is participating in this study, she should inform her treating physician immediately; men treated or enrolled on this protocol must also agree to use adequate contraception prior to the study, for the duration of study participation, and 4 months after completion of dasatinib administration - Ability to understand and the willingness to sign a written informed consent document Exclusion Criteria: - Patients who have had chemotherapy (non-tyrosine kinase inhibitor [TKI]) or radiotherapy within 4 weeks (6 weeks for nitrosoureas or mitomycin C) prior to entering the study or those who have not recovered from adverse events due to agents administered more than 4 weeks earlier - Patients with a history of prior treatment with ipilimumab or dasatinib - Patients who are receiving any other investigational agents - Patients with known brain metastases are excluded from this clinical trial - History of allergic reactions attributed to compounds of similar chemical or biologic composition to dasatinib and ipilimumab - Patients who require concurrent treatment with any medications or substances that are potent inhibitors or inducers of cytochrome P450, family 3, subfamily A, polypeptide 4 (CYP3A4) - Patients who require concurrent treatment with any medications or substances that have significant proarrhythmic potential are ineligible - Patients with any condition (e.g., gastrointestinal tract disease resulting in an inability to take oral medication or a requirement for IV alimentation, prior surgical procedures affecting absorption, or active peptic ulcer disease) that impairs their ability to swallow and retain dasatinib tablets are excluded - Patients may not have any clinically significant cardiovascular disease including the following: - Myocardial infarction or ventricular tachyarrhythmia within 6 months - Prolonged corrected QT interval (QTc) > 480 msec - Ejection fraction less than 50% - Major conduction abnormality (unless a cardiac pacemaker is present) - Uncontrolled intercurrent illness including, but not limited to, the following: ongoing or active infection; history of significant bleeding disorder, including congenital (von Willebrand's disease) or acquired (anti-factor VIII antibodies) disorders; large pleural effusions; or psychiatric illness/social situations that would limit compliance with study requirements - Pregnant women are excluded from this study;

Additional Information

Official title Phase I Study of Dasatinib in Combination With Ipilimumab for Patients With Advanced Gastrointestinal Stromal Tumor and Other Sarcomas
Principal investigator Sandra D'Angelo
Description PRIMARY OBJECTIVES: I. To assess the safety and tolerability of treatment with ipilimumab in combination with dasatinib in subjects with gastrointestinal stromal tumor (GIST) and other advanced sarcomas. SECONDARY OBJECTIVES: I. Response rate (RR) by Response Evaluation Criteria in Solid Tumors (RECIST) 1.1, immune-related response criteria, and Choi criteria. II. Progression free survival (PFS). III. Progression-free survival at 6 months (PFS6months). IV. Overall survival (OS). V. Immunological correlative studies. OUTLINE: This is a dose-escalation study of dasatinib. Patients receive dasatinib orally (PO) once daily (QD) for 7 days. Patients then receive dasatinib PO QD and ipilimumab intravenously (IV) once on weeks 1, 4, 7 and 10. Beginning on week 24, patients then receive dasatinib PO QD and ipilimumab IV once every 12 weeks. Treatment continues in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity. After completion of study treatment, patients are followed up at 4 weeks and then every 3 months.
