LCI-GU-URO-CRI-001: Crizotinib in Patients With c-MET or RON-Positive Metastatic Urothelial Cancer

NCT02612194

Description:

This is a single arm two-stage phase II study with crizotinib (Xalkori®) in the treatment of subjects with metastatic urothelial cancer of the bladder, upper (ureter or renal pelvis) or lower (urethra) urinary tracts. The purpose of this study is to see if this experimental drug has a potential benefit in subjects with stage 4 urothelial cancer. This study tests crizotinib used alone in subjects with urothelial cancer, previously treated with chemotherapy, and whose tumors have certain proteins. Proteins are complex natural substances essential to the structure and function of all living cells. These proteins, c-MET or RON, may trigger molecular pathways that are involved in the growth and spread of bladder or upper urinary tract cancer. Crizotinib is a drug taken by mouth that blocks these pathways. Early laboratory research suggests that crizotinib may benefit patients with urothelial and other cancers with these molecular pathways.

Purpose

This is a single arm two-stage phase II study with crizotinib (Xalkori®) in the treatment of subjects with metastatic urothelial cancer of the bladder, upper (ureter or renal pelvis) or lower (urethra) urinary tracts. The purpose of this study is to see if this experimental drug has a potential benefit in subjects with stage 4 urothelial cancer. This study tests crizotinib used alone in subjects with urothelial cancer, previously treated with chemotherapy, and whose tumors have certain proteins. Proteins are complex natural substances essential to the structure and function of all living cells. These proteins, c-MET or RON, may trigger molecular pathways that are involved in the growth and spread of bladder or upper urinary tract cancer. Crizotinib is a drug taken by mouth that blocks these pathways. Early laboratory research suggests that crizotinib may benefit patients with urothelial and other cancers with these molecular pathways.

Detailed Description

      This is a single arm two-stage phase II study designed to evaluate the objective response
      rate in subjects with metastatic urothelial cancer demonstrating c-MET or RON overexpression
      who have received prior therapy with a cisplatin or carboplatin containing regimen.

      Subjects will be recruited at Levine Cancer Institute (LCI) and other participating sites.

      Immunohistochemistry will be utilized to define tumor sample c-MET and RON protein expression
      patterns for assignment into molecular cohorts as described in section 12.1.

      In the first stage of this study, subjects will be enrolled in parallel to three molecularly
      defined cohorts as follows:

        1. c-MET high (>50%), RON null (0-9%) (n = 14 subjects)

        2. c-MET-positive (10-100%), RON-positive (10-100%) (n = 7 subjects)

        3. c-MET null (0-9%), RON-positive (10-100%) (n = 7 subjects)

      All enrolled subjects will continue with study treatment until criteria for treatment
      discontinuation has been met.

      If Stage 1 response criteria are met in a cohort, the cohort may be considered for expansion,
      and additional subjects (16 in Cohort 1 or 25 in Cohorts 2 or 3) may then be enrolled into
      that cohort in Stage 2. An expansion cohort will be defined by the Sponsor- Investigator
      following review of all available trial data which will be conducted after the first Stage 1
      cohort has completed accrual and at least every six months thereafter until all Stage 1
      cohorts have completed accrual.

      If more than one cohort meets Stage 1 response criteria (2 responses out of 14 subjects for
      Cohort 1 or 1 response out of 7 subjects for each of Cohorts 2 and 3), then the cohort
      showing the highest response rate will be given highest consideration for expansion.

             http://medicine.iupui.edu/clinpharm/ddis/table/aspx; medical reference texts such as
             the Physicians' Desk Reference may also provide this information. As part of the
             enrollment/informed consent procedures, the subject will be counseled on the risk of
             interactions with other agents, and what to do if new medications need to be
             prescribed or if the subject is considering a new over-the-counter medicine or herbal
             product.
