Bladder Cancer Clinical Trial

Futibatinib in Combination With Durvalumab Prior to Cystectomy for the Treatment of Muscle-Invasive Bladder Cancer Patients Who Are Ineligible for Cisplatin-based Therapy

Summary

This phase II trial tests how well the combination of futibatinib and durvalumab given before cystectomy works in treating patients with muscle-invasive bladder cancer (MIBC) who are ineligible for cisplatin-based therapy. Cisplatin-based therapy is the standard of care for patients with MIBC. However, many patients cannot receive standard therapy due to poor renal function, peripheral neuropathy, poor functional status, or clinically significant heart failure. Futibatinib may stop the growth of tumor cells by blocking some of the enzymes needed for cell growth. Durvalumab is a monoclonal antibody that may interfere with the ability of tumor cells to grow and spread. Radical cystectomy is a surgery to remove all of the bladder as well as nearby tissues and organs. Giving futibatinib in combination with durvalumab before surgery may be an effective treatment option for patients with MIBC who are ineligible for cisplatin-based therapy.

Full Description

PRIMARY OBJECTIVE:

I. Determine the pathologic complete response rate of neoadjuvant futibatinib and durvalumab combination in patients with MIBC and fibroblast growth factor receptor (FGFR) overexpression.

SECONDARY OBJECTIVES:

I. Determine the safety of this neoadjuvant regimen. II. Assess the pathologic downstaging rate. III. Evaluate overall survival (OS) and progression free survival (PFS). IV. Evaluate delay in cystectomy.

EXPLORATORY OBJECTIVES:

I. Evaluate potential predictive biomarkers. II. Assess changes in the tumor microenvironment in pre- and post-treatment tumor samples in participants.

OUTLINE:

Patients receive futibatinib orally (PO) once daily (QD) on days 1-28 and durvalumab intravenously (IV) over 60 minutes on day 1 of each cycle. Treatment repeats every 28 days for up to 3 cycles in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity. Patients then undergo radical cystectomy within 4-12 weeks. Patients also undergo computed tomography (CT) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) during screening and on the trial and also undergo blood sample collection on the trial.

After completion of study treatment, patients are followed up at 30 days, and then every 3 months for 2 years.

Archival tissue submission must be 30 unstained slides. If archival tissue is unavailable, the patient must undergo cystoscopy and biopsy. The tumor sample must contain at least 20% viable tumor

Evidence of post-menopausal status or negative urinary or serum pregnancy test for female premenopausal patients. Women will be considered post-menopausal if they have been amenorrheic for 12 months without an alternative medical cause. The following age-specific requirements apply:

Women < 50 years of age would be considered post-menopausal if they have been amenorrheic for 12 months or more following cessation of exogenous hormonal treatments and if they have luteinizing and follicle-stimulating hormone levels in the post-menopausal range for the institution or underwent surgical sterilization (bilateral oophorectomy or hysterectomy)
Women >= 50 years of age would be considered post-menopausal if they have been amenorrheic for 12 months or more following cessation of all exogenous hormonal treatments, had radiation-induced menopause with last menses > 1 year ago, had chemotherapy-induced menopause with last menses > 1 year ago, or underwent surgical sterilization (bilateral oophorectomy, bilateral salpingectomy, or hysterectomy)
Male subjects must agree to use an adequate method of contraception starting with the first dose of study therapy through 100 days after the last dose of study therapy. Female subjects, if sexually active, must agree to use dual methods of contraception during the study and for a minimum period of 100 days after the last dose of the study drug
Women participants without childbearing potential should refrain from donating oocytes from screening through 100 days after the last dose of the study drug
