Breast Cancer Clinical Trial
Eribulin Mesylate and Everolimus in Treating Patients With Triple-Negative Metastatic Breast Cancer
This phase I/IB trial studies the side effects and best dose of eribulin mesylate and everolimus in treating patients with breast cancer that does not have estrogen receptors, progesterone receptors, or large amounts of human epidermal growth factor receptor 2 protein (triple-negative) and has spread to other places in the body (metastatic). Eribulin mesylate and everolimus may stop the growth of tumor cells by blocking some of the enzymes needed for cell growth.
I. To determine the safety and tolerability of everolimus and eribulin (eribulin mesylate), and determine the recommended Phase IB dose (RP2D) of the drug combination in patients with resistant metastatic triple negative breast cancer (TNBC). (Phase I) II. To evaluate the event-free survival (EFS) rate for patients with resistant metastatic TNBC at the RP2D of everolimus and eribulin to determine if the drug combination is worthy of further study. (Phase IB)
I. To determine response rate in patients with resistant metastatic TNBC. (Phase IB) II. To determine overall survival (OS) in patients with resistant metastatic TNBC. (Phase IB) III. To determine toxicity in patients with resistant metastatic TNBC. (Phase IB) IV. To determine pharmacokinetics (PK) for everolimus and eribulin in patients with resistant metastatic TNBC. (Phase IB) V. To collect blood, skin punch biopsies, and tumor biopsies before and after treatment from all patients and perform proteomic analysis to determine the level of inhibition of the phosphatidylinositol 3 kinase (PI3K) pathway in tumor cells versus non-therapeutic targets. (Phase IB)
OUTLINE: This is a dose-escalation study of everolimus.
Patients receive everolimus orally (PO) once daily (QD) on days 1-21 and eribulin mesylate intravenously (IV) on days 1 and 8. Courses repeat every 21 days in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity.
After completion of study treatment, patients are followed up for 21 days and then periodically.
Patients must have histologically-confirmed stage IV TNBC (patients who had metastatic disease within 6 months of lumpectomy or mastectomy for treatment of TNBC may be excused from repeat biopsy)
Be willing to provide tissue from a newly obtained core or excisional biopsy of a tumor lesion; newly obtained is defined as a specimen obtained up to 6 weeks (42 days) prior to initiation of treatment on day 1; subjects for whom newly obtained samples cannot be provide (e.g. inaccessible or subject safety concern) may submit an archived specimen only upon agreement from the study principle investigator (PI)
Patients must have had prior treatment with anthracyclines and/or taxanes (resistant) or platinum including adjuvant or neoadjuvant therapy
Both measurable as well as non-measurable disease per Response Evaluation Criteria in Solid Tumors (RECIST) version 1.1, will be allowed
Patients with chemotherapy for metastatic disease (patients with 0-3 prior lines of chemotherapy for metastatic breast cancer [MBC])
Life expectancy of >= 3 months
Eastern Cooperative Oncology Group (ECOG) performance status (PS) 0-2
Hemoglobin >= 9.0 g/dl
Absolute neutrophil count (ANC) >= 1,500/mm^3
Platelet count >= 100,000/mm^3
Creatinine =< 1.5 times the upper limit of normal (ULN)
Total bilirubin less =< to 1 times ULN
Alanine aminotransferase (ALT) and aspartate aminotransferase (AST) =< to 2.5 times the ULN if no liver metastases; for patients with known liver metastases, AST and ALT must be =< to 5 times the ULN
Women of child-bearing potential must agree to use adequate contraception (hormonal or barrier method of birth control or abstinence) prior to study entry and for up to 8 weeks after ending treatment; should a woman become pregnant or suspect that she is pregnant while participating on the trial, she should inform her treating physician immediately
Ability to understand and the willingness to sign a written informed consent document
Be willing to use dexamethasone mouthwash as directed
Patients who have had chemotherapy or radiotherapy within 2 weeks prior to entering the study or those who have not recovered from adverse events (AEs) due to agents administered > 3 weeks prior to entering the study
Patients may not be receiving any other investigational agents
Patients with symptomatic brain metastases are excluded from this clinical trial
Uncontrolled current illness including, but not limited to, ongoing or active infection (> grade 2 based on the National Cancer Institute Common Terminology Criteria for Adverse Events [NCI CTCAE] version [v]4.0), symptomatic congestive heart failure, unstable angina pectoris, myocardial infarction within the past 6 months, cardiac ventricular arrhythmias requiring anti-arrhythmic therapy, or psychiatric illness/social situations that would limit compliance with study requirements
Prior eribulin use
Patients with human immunodeficiency virus (HIV), chronic hepatitis B, or chronic hepatitis C (known from the existing medical record)
Concomitant use with strong or moderate cytochrome P450, family 3, subfamily A, polypeptide 4 (CYP3A4)/P-glycoprotein (PgP) inhibitors and CYP3A4/PgP inducers
Women of child-bearing potential (WOCBP), defined as all women physiologically capable of becoming pregnant, must use highly effective methods of contraception during the study and 8 weeks after ending treatment; highly effective contraception methods include combination of any two of the following:
Use of oral, injected or implanted hormonal methods of contraception or
Placement of an intrauterine device (IUD) or intrauterine system (IUS)
Barrier methods of contraception: condom or occlusive cap (diaphragm or cervical/vault caps) with spermicidal foam/gel/film/cream/vaginal suppository
Women are considered post-menopausal and not of child-bearing potential if they have had 12 months of natural (spontaneous) amenorrhea with an appropriate clinical profile (e.g., age appropriate, history of vasomotor symptoms) or have had surgical bilateral oophorectomy (with or without hysterectomy) or tubal ligation at least six weeks prior to randomization; in the case of oophorectomy alone, only when the reproductive status of the woman has been confirmed by follow up hormone level assessment is she considered not of child-bearing potential
Male patients whose sexual partner(s) are WOCBP who are not willing to use adequate contraception, during the study and for 8 weeks after the end of treatment
Noncompliant with oral medication and/or dexamethasone mouth wash
