Ovarian Cancer Clinical Trial

ZEN003694 Combined With Niraparib in Patients With Metastatic or Recurrent Solid Tumors

Summary

This Phase I, open label, dose determining study of oral niraparib in combination with ZEN003694 given daily in 28-day cycles will enroll patients with metastatic or recurrent solid cancer. Dose escalation will follow the mTPI-2/Keyboard design. Eligible patients will receive therapy until disease progression or unacceptable toxicities are experienced.

Full Description

PARPis impair the repair of single strand DNA breaks leading to double strand DNA breaks especially in patients with defects in the HR pathway. PARP is have been extensively studied in ovarian cancer and are approved for patients with germline or somatic BRCA mutant ovarian cancer after 2-3 lines of chemotherapy. PARPis have been also approved as maintenance therapy in first line and recurrent ovarian cancer after partial or complete response to platinum-based therapy. PARPis have prominent activity in BRCA mutated cancer with lower activity in the BRCA wild type HRD negative ovarian cancer. Approximately 18-24% of ovarian cancer harbor somatic or germline BRCA mutation and 50% harbor alteration in the homologous recombination (HR) pathway.

Further, PARPi therapy is frequently associated with PARPi resistance. Therefore, there is a need to reverse PARPi resistance and enhance response to PARPi in PARPi resistant ovarian cancer. Recently, significant pre-clinical evidence has shown that BETi's synergize with PARPi's through downregulation of the transcription of several HR genes. It is hypothesized that BETi may suppress HR and enhance non-homologous end joining thereby sensitizing HR-proficient cancer cells to PARP inhibition, and also BETi has been described to reverse PARPi resistance. To test this hypothesis, this Phase I trial will test the combination of niraparib and ZEN003694 in recurrent or metastatic solid cancers.

Pathologically documented recurrent or metastatic solid tumor who progressed on standard of care therapy or for whom standard of care does not exist.
Prior PARPi therapy is allowed
Have had no more than 5 prior cancer therapy treatment regimens, of which a maximum of 4 were cytotoxic chemotherapy or DNA-damaging agents like PARPi-containing regimens
Measurable disease per RECIST 1.1
Known BRCA1/2 status or willing to be tested
Adequate laboratory parameters at Screening
Treated females patients not breastfeeding, pregnant or of childbearing potential, or permanently sterile or who are post-menopausal (no menses for at least 1 year without an alternative medical cause and FSH levels in the post-menopausal range)
Ability to swallow capsules and comply with study procedures
Ability to sign informed consent form prior to initiation of any study procedures.
Patients with previously diagnosed brain metastases are eligible if they have completed their treatment and have recovered from the acute effects of radiation therapy or surgery prior to study enrollment, have discontinued corticosteroid treatment for these metastases for at least 4 weeks and are neurologically stable with evidence of no disease progression for 6 months.

Exclusion Criteria:

Current or anticipated use of medications known to be strong inhibitors or inducers of CYP3A4 or substrates of CYP1A2 with narrow therapeutic windows. Strong inhibitors, inducers or substrates must be discontinued at least 7 days prior to the first administration of study drug.
Current or anticipated use within 7 days prior to the first administration of study drug, or during the study, of strong P-gp inhibitors.
Use of oral Factor Xa inhibitors (i.e., rivaroxaban, apixaban, betrixaban, edoxaban otamixaban, letaxaban, eribaxaban) and Factor IIa inhibitors (i.e., dabigatran). Low molecular weight heparin is allowed
Radiation to >25% of the bone marrow
Treatment with a bone-targeted radionuclide within 6 weeks of first dose of study drug
Have previously received an investigational BET inhibitor (including previous participation in studies with Zenith drug, ZEN003694)
QTcF interval > 470 msec
Insufficient recovery from prior treatment-related toxicities except for alopecia, fatigue and Grade 2 neuropathy
Non-healing wound, ulcer or bone fracture (not including a pathological bone fracture caused by a pre-existing pathological bone lesion)
Brain metastases not adequately treated and/or clinically stable (at the discretion of the Investigator) for at least 6 months prior to the start of study treatment.
Known impaired cardiac function or clinically significant cardiac disease such as uncontrolled supraventricular arrhythmia, ventricular arrhythmia requiring therapy, or congestive heart failure (New York Heart Association functional class III or IV)
Myocardial infarction or unstable angina within 6 months prior to the first administration of study drug
Known myelodysplastic syndrome
Other clinically significant co-morbidities, such as uncontrolled pulmonary disease, active central nervous system disease, active, uncontrolled bacterial, viral, or fungal infection(s) requiring systemic therapy, or any other condition that could compromise safety or the patient's participation in the study
Impairment of gastrointestinal function that may significantly alter the absorption of ZEN003694 or niraparib
Other known active cancer requiring therapy at time of study entry or that progressed or required treatment within 3 years prior to starting study drug (except for skin basal cell carcinoma or squamous cell carcinoma or in situ cervical cancer)
Prior history with PRES
Hypersensitivity to the active substance of to any of the excipients, including tartrazine in the capsule formulation.
Patients with not adequately controlled hypertension despite adequate medical treatment.

History of infection with (screening tests not required): human immunodeficiency virus; hepatitis B virus with currently active disease defined as hepatitis B surface antigen (HBsAg) positivity; or hepatitis C virus unless previously treated and viral load is undetectable except following situations:

HIV-infected patients on effective anti-retroviral therapy with undetectable viral load within 6 months of enrollment are eligible for this trial.
Patients with a known history of Hepatitis B (defined as Hepatitis B surface antigen [HBsAg] reactive) or known active Hepatitis C virus (defined as HCV RNA [qualitative] is detected) infection are allowed to be included if: participant on a stable dose of antiviral therapy, HBV viral load below the limit of quantification. HCV viral load below the limit of quantification.
Major surgery other than diagnostic surgery, dental surgery or stenting within 4 weeks prior to the first administration of study drug
Concurrent participation in another clinical investigational treatment trial
Any other reason that in the opinion of the Investigator would prevent the patient from completing participation or following the study schedule
