Single-arm Study With Bimiralisib in Patients With HNSCC Harboring NOTCH1 Loss of Function Mutations

NCT03740100

Description:

Preclinical data and limited clinical evidence suggest that Head and Neck Squameous Cell Carcinoma tumors harboring certain mutations may respond well to PI3K/mTOR inhibition (phosphatidylinositol-3-kinase/ mammalian target of rapamycin inhibition). The current study enrolls patients with refractory and / or metastatic Head and Neck Squameous Cell Carcinoma based on the mutational status of their disease to assess the response to treatment with bimiralisib, an orally available pan-PI3K/mTOR inhibitor (phosphatidylinositol-3-kinase/ mammalian target of rapamycin inhibitor).

             screening until 90 days after discontinuing study treatment.

        Exclusion Criteria:
