Breast Cancer Clinical Trial

A Phase II Study of the Safety, Tolerability and Antitumor Activity of Tucatinib in Combination With Eribulin and Trastuzumab in Patients With Pretreated Unresectable Locally Advanced or Metastatic HER2+ Breast Cancer

Summary

The purpose of this study is to evaluate the safety and efficacy of the three-drug combination of tucatinib, trastuzumab, and eribulin in patients with de novo and recurrent unresectable metastatic HER-2/neu positive breast cancer as assessed by ORR, PFS and OS after prior treatment with a taxane, trastuzumab, and T-DM1.

Full Description

In view of the potency of tucatinib for the treatment of brain metastases and its modest toxicity, it is important to evaluate the combination of this drug with other established anti-HER2 therapies. There remains a need to evaluate the efficacy of tucatinib with additional active agents in this area. Given the demonstrated activity of eribulin in metastatic breast cancer in general and in her2 positive disease combined with trastuzumab in particular, this study proposes to evaluate the safety and efficacy of the three-drug combination of eribulin, trastuzumab, and tucatinib. It is also important to ascertain the activity of this combination in patients who have previously received tucatinib, as little is known about whether resistance to tucatinib plus one chemotherapy drug confers resistance to tucatinib with a different partner drug.

Eligibility Criteria

Inclusion Criteria:

1. Histologically confirmed HER2+ breast carcinoma, with HER2+ defined by in situ hybridization (ISH) or fluorescence in situ hybridization (FISH) or immunohistochemistry (IHC) 2. Have received previous treatment with trastuzumab and a taxane in the metastatic setting or have recurred within 6 months of receiving a taxane in the adjuvant or neoadjuvant setting, or have a contraindication for their use. Prior trastuzumab deruxtecan, capecitabine or T-DM1 is allowed but not required. Prior tucatinib therapy is allowed.

3. Have progression of unresectable locally advanced or metastatic breast cancer after last systemic therapy (as confirmed by site investigator), or be intolerant of last systemic therapy 4. Have measurable or non-measurable disease assessable by RECIST 1.1 5. Be at least 18 years of age at time of consent. 6. Have Eastern Cooperative Oncology Group Performance Status (ECOG PS) 0, 1 or 2 7. Have a life expectancy of at least 6 months, in the opinion of the site investigator.

8. Have adequate hepatic function as defined by the following:

Total bilirubin ≤1.5 X upper limit of normal (ULN), except for patients with known Gilbert's disease, who may enroll if the conjugated bilirubin is ≤1.5 X ULN
Transaminases [aspartate aminotransferase/serum glutamic oxaloacetic transaminase (AST/SGOT) and alanine aminotransferase/serum glutamic pyruvic transaminase (ALT/SGPT)] ≤ 2.5 X ULN (≤ 5 X ULN if liver metastases are present) 9. Have adequate baseline hematologic parameters as defined by:
Absolute neutrophil count (ANC) ≥ 1.5 x 103/µL
Platelet count ≥ 100 x 103/µL; patients with stable platelet count from 75- 100 x 103/µL may be included with approval from medical monitor,
Hemoglobin ≥ 9 g/dL

In patients transfused before study entry, transfusion must be ≥ 14 days prior to start of therapy to establish adequate hematologic parameters independent from transfusion support, 10. Have creatinine clearance ≥ 50 mL/min as calculated per institutional guidelines or, in patients ≤ 45 kg in weight, a serum creatinine within institutional normal limits, 11. International normalized ratio (INR) and activated partial thromboplastin time (aPTT) ≤ 1.5 X ULN unless on medication known to alter INR and aPTT. (Note: Warfarin and other coumarin derivatives are prohibited.) 12. Have left ventricular ejection fraction (LVEF) ≥ 50% as assessed by echocardiogram (ECHO) or multiple-gated acquisition scan (MUGA) documented within 4 weeks prior to first dose of study treatment.

13. If female of childbearing potential, must have a negative result of serum or urine pregnancy test performed within 7 days prior to first dose of study treatment. A woman is considered of childbearing potential, i.e. fertile, following menarche and until becoming post- menopausal unless permanently sterile. Permanent sterilization methods include hysterectomy, bilateral salpingectomy, and bilateral oophorectomy. A postmenopausal state is defined as no menses for 12 months without an alternative medical cause.

NOTE: Postmenopausal patients with known β-HCG secreting tumors may be eligible when β-HCG-based urine or serum pregnancy tests yield false positive if they meet the definition of postmenopausal state and have a negative uterine ultrasound 14. Women of childbearing potential (as defined above) and men with partners of childbearing potential must agree to use a highly effective birth control method, i.e., methods that achieve a failure rate of less than 1% per year when used consistently and correctly. Such methods include: combined (estrogen and progestogen containing) hormonal contraception associated with inhibition of ovulation (oral, intravaginal, or transdermal); progestogen- only hormonal contraception associated with inhibition of ovulation (oral, injectable, or implantable); intrauterine device; intrauterine hormone-releasing system; bilateral tubal occlusion/ligation; vasectomized partner; or sexual abstinence. Male patients with partners of childbearing potential must use barrier contraception. All study patients should practice effective contraception, as described above, starting from the signing of informed consent until 7 months after the last dose of study medication or investigational medicinal product.

15. Patient must provide signed informed consent per a consent document that has been approved by an institutional review board or independent ethics committee (IRB/IEC) prior to initiation of any study-related tests or procedures that are not part of standard-of-care for the patient's disease.

16. Patients must be willing and able to comply with study procedures.

CNS Inclusion - Based on screening contrast brain magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), patients must have one of the following:

Unable for any reason to undergo contrast MRI of the brain. 15. Have any other medical, social, or psychosocial factors that, in the opinion of the investigator, could impact safety or compliance with study procedures.

16. Have evidence within 2 years of the start of study treatment of another malignancy that required systemic treatment.

CNS Exclusion - Based on screening brain MRI, patients must not have any of the following:

Any untreated brain lesions > 2.0 cm in size, unless discussed with medical monitor and approval for enrollment is given.
