Prostate Cancer Clinical Trial
A Phase II Trial of TPI 287 in Patients With Metastatic Prostate Cancer
The primary objective of the study is to determine the response rate to TPI 287 in patients with metastatic, hormone-refractory prostate cancer who have had one prior taxane regimen.
This is an open-label, multi-center, 2-stage Simon design, Phase 2 study of TPI 287 in patients with metastatic, hormone-refractory prostate cancer. All patients must have received prior taxane therapy. Up to 80 patients will be enrolled and stratified based on duration of cumulative exposure to a single prior taxane regimen. A single taxane regimen is considered to he a taxane or taxane containing therapy administered on a defined schedule with no more than 2 months' interruption between treatments, and total exposure will be assessed by the number of months on that schedule.
One stratum (up to 40 patients) will consist of patients who have had over 3 months (up to a maximum of 10 months) exposure to a taxane regimen, who then have documented progression of disease (initially taxane sensitive). The second stratum (up to 40 patients) will consist of patients considered primarily resistant to taxanes who have had documented progressive disease as best response after exposure to a single taxane regimen for less than or equal to 3 months. Patients may have received prior hormonal therapy and/or bisphosphonates and may continue on these therapies.
In the first stage of the trial, 22 patients in each stratum will be treated with TPI 287 intravenously every 21 days. If 1 or fewer patients in either stratum demonstrate a response in this first stage, the trial will be discontinued for that stratum. Otherwise, an additional 18 patients in the stratum showing 2 or more responses will be enrolled in the second stage of the study. If 4 or fewer patients demonstrate a response in the total study population in either stratum from stages 1 and 2, then the drug will not be considered of interest in prostate cancer for patients as defined in that stratum.
Histological or cytological evidence of adenocarcinoma of the prostate and have metastatic disease.
Patients must have received only one prior regimen for their advanced disease. This regimen must have included a taxane.
First Stratum Eligibility: Patients must have advanced, metastatic prostate cancer with documented progression after receiving more than three months of treatment, up to a total of 10 months with 1 prior taxane regimen. Prior best response to treatment, and duration of response, will be recorded.
Second Stratum Eligibility: Patients must have advanced, metastatic prostate cancer that has progressed as best response despite three months or less of treatment with 1 prior taxane regimen.

Must have an ECOG Performance Score of 0 or 1
Must be age 18 or older
Must be able to read, understand and sign informed consent
Serum creatinine less than or equal to 2.0 mg/dL
Total bilirubin less than or equal to 2.0 mg/dL
SGOT/SGPT less than or equal to 3 times the ULN

More than one prior systemic therapy for HRPC beyond androgen-ablative therapy. Prior systemic therapy may have been administered for metastatic disease or as adjuvant therapy
Has received radiotherapy to greater than 30% of their active bone marrow
History of prior malignancy within the past 5 years except for curatively treated non-melanoma skin cancer
