Study Design

Endpoint classification safety study
Intervention model single group assignment
Masking open label
Primary purpose treatment
Open-label administration of SNX-5422 capsules dosed in the morning once every other day (qod) for 21 days (11 doses), followed by a 7 day drug free period. Dose escalation will be based on safety defined as 1 or less dose limiting toxicities during the first 28 day cycle at any dose level. Dose escalation will not exceed a dose of 100 mg/m2 SNX-5422 qod even if the MTD has not been identified. Subjects will receive daily oral everolimus in the PM about the same time every day for 28 days.
Capsule dosed every other day for 21 days out of a 28 day cycle. Dose escalation based on safety not to exceed a dose of 100 mg/m2. Maintenance therapy of SNX-5422 at the MTD will be allowed for all patients not experiencing significant toxicity.

Primary Outcomes

Number of patients with dose limiting toxicities
time frame: First 28 day cycle

Secondary Outcomes

Number of patients with adverse events as a measure of tolerability
time frame: Every 4 weeks
Changes in ECG, vital signs, laboratory or physical examination
time frame: Every 4 weeks
Tumor response
time frame: Every 8 weeks

Additional Information

Official title A Phase 1, Open-label, Dose-escalation Study of SNX 5422 and Everolimus in Subjects With Neuroendocrine Tumors.
Description Heat shock protein 90 (Hsp90) plays a central role in the maturation and maintenance of numerous proteins, for example HER2 and mutated EGFR, that are critical for tumor cell viability and growth; SNX-5422 is a pro-drug of SNX-2112, a potent, highly selective, small-molecule inhibitor of the molecular chaperone heat shock protein 90 (Hsp90). Hsp90 has been found to be expressed in 95% of subjects with pancreatic neuroendocrine tumors. This study will determine the MTD of SNX-5422 when given in combination with everolimus in patients with neuroendocrine tumors.The clinical starting dose of 50 mg/m2 qod for SNX-5422 in combination with daily everolimus is 50% of the SNX-5422 qod mono-therapy MTD. The choice to continue once every other day SNX-5422 dosing is based on the safety and efficacy profiles from prior studies, so that drug holidays are interspersed into weekly dosing. The planned subsequent dose levels are 75% and 100% of the SNX-5422 qod mono-therapy MTD.
