Sirolimus and Auranofin in Treating Patients With Advanced or Recurrent Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer or Small Cell Lung Cancer

NCT01737502

Description:

This phase I/II trial studies the side effects and best dose of auranofin when given together with sirolimus and to see how well it works in treating patients with lung cancer that has spread or other places in the body and cannot be cured or controlled by treatment or has come back after a period of time during which the cancer could not be detected. Auranofin and sirolimus may stop or slow the growth of lung cancer.

Purpose

This phase I/II trial studies the side effects and best dose of auranofin when given together with sirolimus and to see how well it works in treating patients with lung cancer that has spread or other places in the body and cannot be cured or controlled by treatment or has come back after a period of time during which the cancer could not be detected. Auranofin and sirolimus may stop or slow the growth of lung cancer.

Detailed Description

      PRIMARY OBJECTIVES:

      I. To establish the maximum tolerated dose of auranofin plus sirolimus after at least one
      line of platinum based chemotherapy for lung cancer (squamous, ras-mutated adenocarcinoma, or
      small cell lung cancer) patients with no acceptable standard treatment options. (Phase I) II.
      To assess the progression-free survival at four months of patients treated with auranofin
      after at least one line of platinum based chemotherapy for lung cancer (squamous, ras-mutated
      adenocarcinoma, or small cell lung cancer) patients with no acceptable standard treatment
      options. (Phase II)

      SECONDARY OBJECTIVES:

      I. To assess the overall survival in this population in comparison to recent historical
      controls.

      II. To determine the adverse events (AE) profile and safety of the regimen. III. To determine
      the overall response rate, per Response Evaluation Criteria In Solid Tumors (RECIST)
      criteria, and duration of tumor response in those patients with measurable disease.

      TERTIARY OBJECTIVES:

      I. To assess the relationship between molecular correlates and progression-free survival
      (PFS), overall survival (OS), response and adverse events.

      OUTLINE: This is a phase I, dose-escalation study of auranofin followed by a phase II study.

      Patients receive auranofin orally (PO) on days 1-28 and sirolimus PO on days 1-28 (days 8-28
      of course 1). Courses repeat every 28 days in the absence of disease progression or
      unacceptable toxicity.

      After completion of study treatment, patients are followed up every 3-6 months for 5 years.

Primary Outcome Measures

Measure:MTD of auranofin (Phase I)
Time Frame:28 days
Safety Issue:
Description:The number and severity of all adverse events (overall and by dose level) will be tabulated and summarized. The descriptions and grading scales found in the revised NCI Common Terminology Criteria for Adverse Events (CTCAE) version 4.0 will be utilized for AE reporting.

Secondary Outcome Measures

Measure:Survival time
Time Frame:Defined as the time from registration to death due to any cause, assessed up to 5 years
Safety Issue:
Description:The distribution of survival time will be estimated using the method of Kaplan-Meier. The median overall survival time will be descriptively compared to that of the subgroup of patients with squamous cell carcinoma on the cisplatin/gemcitabine arm of Scagliotti et al (2008).
Measure:Progression-free survival time
Time Frame:From registration to the earliest date of documentation of disease progression, assessed up to 5 years
Safety Issue:
Description:The distribution of progression-free survival time will be estimated using the method of Kaplan-Meier.
Measure:Overall response rate, defined to be either a complete response (CR) or partial response (PR) noted as the objective status
Time Frame:Up to 5 years
Safety Issue:
Description:The overall response rate will be estimated in the subset of patients with measureable disease by the number of responses in evaluable patients with measurable disease divided by the total number of evaluable patients with measureable disease. The appropriate confidence interval will be calculated based on the binomial distribution
Measure:Duration of response
Time Frame:Up to 5 years
Safety Issue:
Description:Defined for all evaluable patients with measurable disease who have achieved a response as the date at which the patient's earliest best objective status is first noted to be a CR or PR to the earliest date progression is documented. The distribution of duration of response will be estimated using the method of Kaplan-Meier.
