Conditions pre-menopausal breast cancer, pi3k pathway inhibition
Treatments alpelisib (byl719), buparlisib (bkm120)
Phase phase 1
Target PI3K
Sponsor Novartis Pharmaceuticals
Start date May 2014
End date May 2016
Trial size 40 participants
Trial identifier NCT02058381, CBYL719XIC01


Based on the evidence acquired in the post-menopausal setting with everolimus and on pre-clinical evidences supporting the investigation of PI3K inhibitors, such as alpelisib and buparlisib, in combination with endocrine therapy in hormone receptor-positive MBC, the purpose of this phase Ib trial is to assess the maximum tolerated dose (MTD) and/or the RP2D(s), to characterize the safety and tolerability, to determine the single and multiple dose PK profile and assess the preliminary anti-tumor activity of alpelisib and buparlisib in combination with tamoxifen plus goserelin acetate in premenopausal hormone receptor-positive advanced breast cancer patientsgroup.

Eligibility Criteria

Female participants at least 18 years old.

Inclusion Criteria: - Patient has histologically and/or cytologically confirmed diagnosis of breast cancer - Patient has radiological or objective evidence of inoperable locally advanced or metastatic breast cancer - Patient has HER2-negative breast cancer (based on most recently analyzed tumor sample) - Patient has ER positive and/or PgR positive breast cancer by local laboratory testing - Patient is premenopausal. Premenopausal status is defined as either: 1. patient had last menstrual period within the last 12 months, OR 2. if on tamoxifen within the past 3 months, with a plasma estradiol ≥10 pg/mL and FSH ≤40 IU/l or in the premenopausal range, according to local laboratory definition , OR 3. in case of chemotherapy induced amenorrhea, with a plasma estradiol ≥10 pg/mL) and/or FSH ≤40 IU/l or in the premenopausal range according to local laboratory definition. - Patient has no previous history of endocrine therapy in the metastatic setting. Note: - Patients who received oral endocrine therapy with duration less than 3 weeks or ≤1 injection of LHRH agonist and discontinued for a reason other than suspicious or evidence of disease progression are eligible - Adjuvant treatment with tamoxifen monotherapy and LHRH analogue monotherapy is allowed. Patients who received tamoxifen plus LH-RH agonist/antagonist in the adjuvant setting are eligible provided they start investigational treatment at least 12 months after the last dose of tamoxifen or LH-RH agonist/antagonist, whichever came later. - Patients who were already established on bisphosphonate therapy may continue on bisphosphonates. - Patient has received ≤1 prior chemotherapy line for MBC - For patient who received prior systemic therapy, radiological or objective evidence of recurrence or progression on or after the last systemic therapy is needed - Patient must have as per RECIST 1.1: - measurable disease or - non-measurable lytic or mixed (lytic + blastic) bone lesions in the absence of measurable disease. - Patient has adequate bone marrow and organ function as defined by the following laboratory values: - Patient has an Eastern Cooperative Oncology Group (ECOG) performance status ≦ 2 which the investigator believes is stable at the time of screening. - Patient has negative serum pregnancy test (β-hCG) within 72 hrs before starting study treatment. Exclusion criteria - Patient is post-menopausal. - Patient has received previous endocrine treatments in the metastatic setting. - Patient has received previous treatment with PI3K inhibitors, AKT inhibitors, mTOR inhibitors - Patient has received more than one chemotherapy line for metastatic disease - Patient has symptomatic CNS metastases - Patient who has received wide field radiotherapy ≦ 4 weeks or limited field radiation for palliation ≦ 2 weeks prior to starting study drug or who have not recovered to grade 1 or better from related side effects of such therapy (with exception of alopecia alopecia) - Patient has not recovered to grade 1 or better (except alopecia) from related side effects of any prior antineoplastic therapy - Patient is currently receiving increasing or chronic treatment (> 5 days) with corticosteroids or another immunosuppressive agent, as chronic administration of corticosteroids (> 5 days) can induce CYP3A4 - Patient is currently receiving warfarin or other coumarin derived anti-coagulant, for treatment, prophylaxis or otherwise. Therapy with heparin, low molecular weight heparin (LMWH), or fondaparinux is allowed - Patient is currently receiving treatment with drugs known to be moderate or strong inhibitors or inducers of isoenzyme CYP3A. The patient must have discontinued strong inducers for at least one week and must have discontinued strong inhibitors before the treatment phase is initiated. - Patient has a score ≧ 12 on the PHQ-9 questionnaire - Patient selects a response of "1, 2 or 3" to question number 9 on the PHQ-9 questionnaire regarding potential for suicidal thoughts or ideation (independent of the total score of the PHQ-9) - Patient has a GAD-7 mood scale score ≧ 15 - Patient has a medically documented history of or active major depressive episode, bipolar disorder (I or II), obsessive-compulsive disorder, schizophrenia, a history of suicidal attempt or ideation, or homicidal ideation (e.g. risk of doing harm to self or others) or patients with active severe personality disorders (defined according to DSM- IV) are not eligible. - Patient has ≧ Common Terminology Criteria for Adverse Events (CTCAE) grade 3 anxiety - Patient has active cardiac disease or a history of cardiac dysfunction - Patient has a Left Ventricular Ejection Fraction (LVEF) < 50% as determined by Multiple Gated acquisition (MUGA) scan or echocardiogram (ECHO) - Patient has any of the following cardiac conduction abnormalities 1.
