Purpose

This is an international, multicentre, double-blind, controlled, randomized phase II study comparing the efficacy and safety of fulvestrant in combination with palbociclib versus fulvestrant plus placebo in postmenopausal women with HR-positive/HER2-negative metastatic breast cancer who have received ≥5 years of endocrine therapy in the adjuvant setting as treatment for early disease and remained disease free for > 12 months following its completion or have "de novo" metastatic disease. Patients must have at least one lesion (measurable and/or non-measurable) that can be accurately assessed at baseline and is suitable for repeated assessment by CT, MRI or plan x-ray. Patients with bone-only disease must have a lytic or mixed (lytic + blastic) lesion, which has not been previously irradiated and can be accurately assessed by CT/MRI or x-ray. Approximately 190 patients will be randomized 1:1 between the experimental arm (approximately 95 patients treated with fulvestrant plus palbociclib) and the control arm (approximately 95 patients treated with fulvestrant plus placebo). Primary Objective: • To compare the efficacy of fulvestrant in combination with palbociclib versus fulvestrant plus placebo in terms of the rate of Progression-Free Survival (PFS) at 1 year in postmenopausal women with HR-positive/HER2-negative metastatic breast cancer previously treated with endocrine therapy for at least 5 years and remaining disease free for more than 12 months following its completion or have "de novo" metastatic disease

Eligibility Criteria

        Inclusion Criteria:

          1. The patient has signed and dated the informed consent document and it has been
             obtained before conducting any procedure specifically for the study.

          2. Availability of a tumor tissue sample, archival (primary tumour) or from the
             metastatic lesions (preferable) for the central ER, PgR and HER2 testing.

          3. Histological/cytological confirmation of breast cancer with evidence of metastatic
             disease (loco-regional or distant), not amenable to resection or radiation therapy
             with curative intent.

          4. Documented positive hormone receptor status (> or = 1% of tumour cells with oestrogen
             receptor [ER] and/or progesterone receptor [PgR] expression) based on central testing
             on the most recent tumour biopsy.

          5. Documented HER2-negative tumour based on central testing on the most recent tumour
             biopsy. HER2-negative tumour is determined as immunohistochemistry score 0/1+ or
             negative by in situ hybridization (FISH/CISH/SISH) defined as a HER2/CEP17 ratio <2 or
             for single probe assessment a HER2 copy number <4.

          6. Patients must have received at least 5 years of endocrine therapy in the adjuvant
             setting as treatment for early disease and remained disease free for more than 12
             months following its completion or have "de novo" metastatic disease. Patients that
             have been scheduled 5 years with adjuvant endocrine therapy and stopped treatment, by
             patient's own decision, after completing at least 3 years of treatment, can be also be
             included as long as they have remained free of disease 3 years after discontinuing the
             endocrine therapy.

          7. Patients must have at least one lesion (measurable and/or non-measurable) that can be
             accurately assessed at baseline and is suitable for repeated assessment by CT, MRI,
             plan x-ray or physical examination. Clinical lesions will only be considered
             measurable when they are superficial and ≥10mm diameter as assessed using callipers
             (e.g. skin nodules). Patients with bone-only disease must have a lytic or mixed (lytic
             + blastic) lesion, which has not been previously irradiated and can be accurately
             assessed by CT/MRI according to RECIST version 1.1.
