Open-Label Study Evaluating the Safety and Tolerability of LJM716, BYL719 and Trastuzumab in Patients With Metastatic HER2+ Breast Cancer

NCT02167854

Description:

This is a Phase I study. The purpose of this study is to determine what is the best dose of the study drug BYL719 in combination with the study drug LJM716 and traztuzumab (Herceptin®). The study will test the safety of the combination of these three drugs, and to find out the effects, good and/or bad, that these three drugs have on the patient and breast cancer.

Trial Arms

NameTypeDescriptionInterventions
LJM716, BYL719 AND TRASTUZUMABExperimentalA treatment cycle will consist of 28 days. Treatment doses for trastuzumab and LJM716 will be fixed at trastuzumab 2mg/kg weekly, and LJM716 20mg/kg weekly. The exception to this is if dose de-escalation results in treatment of patients at dose level 1, where LJM will be dosed at 10mg/kg weekly. On Arm A, BYL719 was administered orally once daily continuously at one of 5 dosing levels, beginning with dose level 3, 250mg orally daily. On Arm B, BYL719 will be administered orally once daily during 4 of 7 days in a week, at one of 5 dosing levels, beginning with dose level 3, 250mg orally daily. This means BYL719 will be given to patients on Arm B during days 1-4, 8-11, 15-18, and 22-25 of each cycle. The dose-finding phase will follow a Continuous Reassessment Methods (CRM) phase I biostatistical design.

             delivery of the drug via seminal fluid.

          -  Women of child-bearing potential, defined as all women physiologically capable of
             becoming pregnant, unless they are using highly effective methods of contraception

             contraception methods include:

             i. Total abstinence (when this is in line with the preferred and usual lifestyle of
             the subject. Periodic abstinence (e.g., calendar, ovulation, symptothermal,
             post-ovulation methods) and withdrawal are not acceptable methods of contraception ii.
             Female sterilization (have had surgical bilateral oophorectomy with or without
             hysterectomy) or tubal ligation at least six weeks before taking study treatment. In
             case of oophorectomy alone, only when the reproductive status of the woman has been
             confirmed by follow up hormone level assessment iii. Male partner sterilization (at
             least 6 months prior to screening). For female subjects on the study the vasectomized
             male partner should be the sole partner for that subject.

        iv. Combination of the following methods:

          1. Placement of an intrauterine device (IUD) or intrauterine system (IUS)

          2. Barrier methods of contraception: Condom or Occlusive cap (diaphragm or cervical/vault
             caps) with spermicidal foam/gel/film/cream/vaginal suppository

        Note: Post-menopausal women are allowed to participate in this study. Women are considered
        post-menopausal and not of child bearing potential if they are:

          -  Aged ≥60;

          -  or aged < 60 and have had 12 months of natural (spontaneous, in the absence of
             chemotherapy, tamoxifen, toremifene, or ovarian suppression) amenorrhea with and FSH
             and estradiol in the postmenopausal range (serum FSH > 40 mIU/mL and estradiol <10
             pg/mL or according to the postmenopausal range definition for the local laboratory
             involved)

          -  or have had surgical bilateral oophorectomy (with or without hysterectomy) For women
             with therapy-induced amenorrhea, oophorectomy or serial measurements of FSH and/or
             estradiol are needed to ensure postmenopausal status. NOTE: Ovarian radiation or
             treatment with a luteinizing hormone-releasing hormone (LH-RH) agonist (goserelin
             acetate or leuprolide acetate) is not permitted for induction of ovarian suppression.
