Purpose

This is a Phase II, non-randomized, open-label study to evaluate temozolomide in combination with olaparib in patients with MGMT promoter hypermethylated advanced colorectal cancer.

Detailed Description

      This is a Phase II, non-randomized, open-label study to evaluate temozolomide in combination
      with olaparib in patients with MGMT promoter hypermethylated advanced colorectal cancer.
      Patients will receive temozolomide orally daily on days 1-7 and olaparib twice daily
      continuously. Cycles repeat every 21 days in the absence of disease progression or
      unacceptable toxicity. After completion of study treatments patients are followed up at 30
      days, and for patients that come off treatment for reasons other than disease progression,
      clinical assessments will continue every 6 weeks for the first year and every 12 weeks after
      the first year.

      PRIMARY OBJECTIVES:

      I. To determine the efficacy of TMZ in combination with olaparib in subjects with MGMT
      promoter hypermethylated advanced colorectal cancer by the overall response rate.

      SECONDARY OBJECTIVES:

      I. To determine the safety of TMZ in combination with olaparib. II. To estimate the
      progression free survival (PFS). III. To estimate overall survival (OS).

      EXPLORATORY OBJECTIVES:

      I. Characterize NGS profiling, patterns of DNA methylation, gene expression, and develop MGMT
      expression assays.

      II. Correlate molecular features with Gamma H2AX with response. III. Establish organoids for
      MGMT promoter hypermethylated colorectal cancer.

                  benefit to the patient. The patient will not be excluded from other aspects of
                  the study.

             requirements.

          -  Previous enrollment in the present study.
