Ovarian Cancer Clinical Trial
PLX038 for the Treatment of Patients With Platinum-resistant Ovarian, Primary Peritoneal, and Fallopian Tube Cancer
This phase II trial tests whether pegylated SN-38 conjugate PLX038 (PLX038) works to shrink tumors in patients with ovarian, primary peritoneal, and fallopian tube cancers that has spread to other places in the body. PLX038 may stop the growth of tumor cells by blocking some of the enzymes needed for cell growth.
I. To estimate the overall tumor response rate (overall response rate [ORR], that is, complete response [CR] + partial response [PR], according to Response Evaluation Criteria in Solid Tumors version 1.1 [RECIST v1.1] of PLX038 in the setting of metastatic platinum resistant high grade serous ovarian cancer.
I. To estimate the progression-free survival and overall survival of treatment with PLX038.
II. To describe and assess tolerability of PLX038. III. Measure PLX038 induced tumor TOP1-deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA) covalent complexes (TOP1cc) in pretreatment and Cycle 1 Day 8 biopsies to confirm persistent stabilization of TOP1cc and evaluate association with tumor response rate.
I. Measure TOP1cc in circulating tumor cells and evaluate association with TOP1cc in tumor tissue and tumor response rate.
II. Assess homologous repair status and association with tumor response. III. Assess expression of SN-38 transports by quantitative reverse transcriptase-polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR) and association with tumor response.
Patients receive PLX038 intravenously (IV) over 1 hour on day 1 of each cycle. Cycles repeat every 21 days in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity.
After completion of study treatment, patients are followed up at 30 days and every 6 months for up to 5 years.
Age >= 18 years NOTE: Because no dosing or adverse event data are currently available on the use of PLX038 in patients < 18 years of age, children are excluded from this study, but will be eligible for future pediatric trials
Histological confirmed high grade serous ovarian cancer consistent with ovarian, fallopian tube, or primary peritoneal carcinoma (NOTE: Any of these diseases are referred to in this protocol as "ovarian cancer")
Recurrent high grade serous ovarian cancer that was initially platinum sensitive (i.e., had at least one platinum-free interval of at least 6 months before progression) is now platinum resistant
No more than one prior line of therapy for platinum resistant disease. NOTE: Prior poly adenosine diphosphate-ribose polymerase (PARP) inhibitor therapy is allowed

Platelet count >= 100,000/mm^3 (obtained =< 28 days prior to registration)
Total bilirubin >= 1.5 x upper limit of normal (ULN) (obtained =< 28 days prior to registration)
Alanine aminotransferase (ALT) and aspartate aminotransferase (AST) =< 3 x ULN (=< 5 x ULN for patients with liver involvement) (obtained =< 28 days prior to registration)

Negative pregnancy test done =< 7 days prior to registration, for persons of childbearing potential only
Provide written informed consent
Willing to return to enrolling institution for follow-up (during the Active Monitoring Phase of the study)
Willingness to provide mandatory blood specimens for correlative research
Willingness to provide mandatory tissue specimens for correlative research
Any of the following because this study involves an agent that has known genotoxic, mutagenic and teratogenic effects:
Persons of childbearing potential who are unwilling to employ adequate contraception
Histology other than high grade serous carcinoma
Prior treatment restrictions
Chemotherapy =< 4 weeks prior to registration
Immunotherapy =< 4 weeks prior to registration
Radiotherapy =< 4 weeks prior to registration
Any other investigational therapy =< 4 weeks prior to registration
History of prior or concurrent malignancy =< 2 years prior to registration
Exceptions: If natural history or treatment does not have the potential to interfere with the safety or efficacy assessment of the investigational regimen
Uncontrolled intercurrent illness including, but not limited to:
Myocardial infarction within 6 months of study entry
New York Heart Association (NYHA) class III or IV heart failure
Uncontrolled dysrhythmias or poorly controlled angina
History of serious ventricular arrhythmia (ventricular tachycardia [VT] or ventricular fibrillation [VF]) and/or factors that predispose to arrhythmia (e.g., heart failure, hypokalemia, family history of long QT syndrome)
Known history or current symptoms of cardiac disease, or history of treatment with cardiotoxic agents, Exception: Patients should have a clinical risk assessment of cardiac function using the New York Heart Association functional classification. To be eligible for this trial, patients should be class 2B or better
Known human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) Exception: Patients on effective anti-retroviral therapy with undetectable viral load =< 6 months prior to registration are eligible for this trial
Exception: For patients with evidence of chronic hepatitis B virus infection the HepB viral load must be undetectable on suppressive therapy, if indicated, to be eligible
Exception: Patients with a history of hepatitis C virus infection must have been treated and cured. Patients with HCV infection who are currently on treatment are eligible if they have an undetectable HCV viral load
Receiving any other investigational agent
History of clinically significant gastrointestinal bleeding, colitis, or gastrointestinal perforation
Co-morbid systemic illnesses or other severe concurrent disease which, in the judgment of the investigator, would make the patient inappropriate for entry into this study or interfere significantly with the proper assessment of safety and toxicity of the prescribed regimen
Requirement for anticoagulation treatment that increases international normalized ratio (INR) or activated partial thromboplastin time (APTT) above the normal range (Exceptions: low dose deep vein thrombosis (DVT) or line prophylaxis allowed
Known central nervous system (CNS) disease Exception: Patients with treated brain metastases are eligible if follow-up brain imaging after CNS directed therapy shows no evidence of progression. Patients with new or progressive brain metastases (active brain metastases) or leptomeningeal disease are eligible if the treating physician determined that immediate CNS specific treatment is not required and is unlikely to be required during the 1st cycle of therapy
Known Gilbert's syndrome or homozygous for the UGT1A1*28 variant allele or other relevant alleles with severely reduced UGT1A1 activity
Patients who require treatment with UGT1A1 inhibitors during the planned period of investigational treatment with PLX038
