Ovarian Cancer Clinical Trial
ZEN003694 Combined With Talazoparib in Patients With Recurrent Ovarian Cancer
This Phase 2, open label, study with safety lead in of oral talazoparib in combination with ZEN003694 given daily in 28-day cycles will enroll patients with recurrent ovarian, fallopian tube or primary peritoneal carcinoma.
This study aims to determine how effective the combination of ZEN003694 and talazoparib is based on how patients respond. ZEN003694 (and developed by Zenith Epigenetics Ltd.) has shown promising activity in the treatment of solid tumors and hematologic (blood) cancers by reducing the multiplication of cancer cells. Talazoparib is an extremely effective drug being developed for the treatment of a variety of human cancers. Talazoparib kills cancer cells by inhibiting and trapping the enzyme PARP, which is known to be involved in the development of many types of cancers. These two drugs are not FDA approved in the treatment of ovarian cancer.

Prior therapy with PARPi either as maintenance or therapeutic settings.
All recurrent ovarian cancer both platinum sensitive and platinum resistant are allowed.
Any prior number of cancer therapy regimens
Measurable disease per RECIST 1.1
Known BRCA1/2 status
Adequate laboratory parameters at Screening including:
Hemoglobin ≥ 9.0 gm/dL without transfusions during the 4 weeks prior to Screening
Absolute neutrophil count (ANC) ≥ 1.5 × 109/L
Platelet count ≥ 150,000/mm3
Aspartate aminotransferase (AST) or alanine aminotransferase (ALT) ≤ 2.0 x ULN or if liver function abnormalities due to liver metastases AST and ALT ≤ 5.0 x ULN
Total bilirubin ≤ 1.5 x ULN (≤ 3.0 x ULN for subjects with known Gilbert's syndrome)
Serum Creatinine ≤ 1.5 X ULN
Prothrombin time (PT), international normalized ratio (INR) and partial thromboplastin time (PTT) < 1.5 x ULN
Female subjects may be enrolled if they are not of childbearing potential, permanently sterile or who are post-menopausal, defined as no menses for at least 1 year without an alternative medical cause and FSH levels in the post-menopausal range. Female subjects of childbearing potential may be enrolled if they consistently and correctly use a highly effective form of contraception. Highly effective forms of contraception include: combined (estrogen and progestogen hormonal contraceptives (oral, intravaginal, transdermal) associated with inhibition of ovulation; progestogen-only hormonal contraception (oral, injectable, implantable) associated with inhibition of ovulation; intrauterine device (IUD); intrauterine hormone-releasing system (IUS); bilateral tubal occlusion; vasectomized partner; sexual abstinence. Female subjects should not donate eggs from the time point of study drug administration until at least 7 months thereafter
Females of childbearing potential must have a negative serum pregnancy test before the first dose of study drug and must agree to serum pregnancy tests during the study.
Females may not be breast-feeding at the first dose of study drug, during study participation or through 7 months after the last dose of study drug.
Ability to swallow capsules and comply with study procedures.
Ability to understand and willingness 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.
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
Prior chemotherapy or radiation within 3 weeks of study enrollment
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.
Patients with ovarian carcinosarcoma
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 talazoparib
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)
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.
