Study of Carboplatin and Mirvetuximab Soravtansine in First-Line Treatment of Patients Receiving Neoadjuvant Chemotherapy With Advanced-Stage Ovarian, Fallopian Tube or Primary Peritoneal Cancer

NCT04606914

Description:

The proposed study design is a single arm Phase II trial to document the feasibility of carboplatin-mirvetuximab - in patients with advanced-stage EOC. Patients with biopsy confirmed, newly diagnosed, advanced-stage serous EOC deemed appropriate for NACT will have their tumors evaluated for FRα receptor over-expression via a centralized immunohistochemical assay (IHC) and identified as appropriate for study participation if IHC staining is PS2+ in >75% of cells (40% of all serous patients). Eligible patients will receive NACT with one cycle of carboplatin, followed by mirvetuximab + carboplatin (if FRα +) every 21 days for three cycles prior to interval cytoreductive surgery (iCRS). A total of 70 will be included in the study. Following completion of 4 cycles total of NACT and after allowing for appropriate recovery of cycle # 4, patients eligible for surgery, will undergo an iCRS. Patients will then complete 3 more cycles of mirvetuximab + carboplatin for a total of 7 intended cycles of treatment. It is up to the treating physician if they want to add bevacizumab to the last 2 cycles or use any type of maintenance therapy. The decision to add bevacizumab or use maintenance therapy does not need to be made upfront. Patients will sign a screening consent form prior to tissue biopsy. If a patient is found to be FRα negative, their treating physician can select the treatment they deem appropriate and the patient will be declared a screen failure. Patients with BRCA mutations are not excluded from this trial and are allowed to receive standard of care maintenance therapy including bevacizumab and/or PARP inhibitors.

Detailed Description

      Mirvetuximab soravtansine (also known as IMGN853 and MIRV) is an antibody-drug conjugate
      (ADC) that consists of a high affinity humanized monoclonal antibody against folate receptor
      α (FRα, the protein product of the folate receptor 1 [FOLR1] gene) that is conjugated to a
      cytotoxic maytansinoid by the hindered disulfide succinimidyl
      4-(pyridin-2-yl)disulfanyl)-2-sulfo-butyrate linker (sulfo-SPDB) linker. FRα is a
      glycosyl-phosphatidylinositol (GPI)-linked protein, which shows limited normal tissue
      expression and high expression on the surface of solid tumors, particularly epithelial
      ovarian cancer, fallopian tube cancer, and primary peritoneal cancer (referenced herein
      collectively as EOC), endometrial cancer, non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC), and renal cell
      cancer. The selective upregulation of FRα in solid tumors and the potent and selective
      cytotoxicity of MIRV against FRα-positive tumor cells demonstrated in nonclinical studies and
      clinical studies to date provide rationale for further investigation of MIRV in the treatment
      of FRα-positive tumors.

      Ovarian cancer is a lethal disease with 22,530 new cases and 13,980 deaths expected in 2019
      in the US. The estimated number of new EOC cases in the EU (EU27) in 2012 was 44,149 with
      29,758 deaths. The overall 5-year survival for EOC patients is only 44%. Besides the
      incorporation of a platinum- and taxane-based chemotherapy regimen into the upfront
      treatment, no major strides have been made to improve overall survival (OS) following EOC
      diagnosis.

      Standard of care chemotherapy includes every 21-day paclitaxel and carboplatin, weekly
      paclitaxel and every 21-day carboplatin. Recently, bevacizumab was approved to be given with
      and to follow intravenous chemotherapy in front line ovarian cancer based on the PFS
      advantage demonstrated in GOG 218 and ICON7. This study continued bevacizumab for 15 cycles
      post completion of 6 cycles of chemotherapy. In evaluating the morphology of the Kaplan Meier
      curves from both these trials, it is apparent that there is an inflexion in the curves at the
      point where the bevacizumab is discontinued. To evaluate whether further continuation of
      bevacizumab would improve PFS, AGO-OVAR17 (BOOST study) is evaluating 15 versus 30 cycles of
      bevacizumab following front line chemotherapy. These results are anticipated in 2021. Given
      the above data, this trial as designed, will not include a specific maintenance portion, but
      physicians can choice what type of maintenance therapy, if any, they give at the completion
      of at least 7 cycles of platinum +Mirvetuximab soravtansine.

      Despite considerable improvements in primary therapy, 80% of the patients with advanced EOC
      are expected to relapse during or after treatment with platinum-containing regimens. Disease
      recurring within 6 months of platinum-based chemotherapy is classified as platinum resistant,
      whereas, disease recurring longer than 6 months after therapy is termed platinum sensitive.

      Those patients with PROC who have received prior bevacizumab, either in the
      platinum-resistant or in the platinum-sensitive setting, have few options. They typically
      receive subsequent single-agent chemotherapy. Unfortunately, response rates to single-agent
      chemotherapy are modest (~10 to 15%) and DOR is typically 4 to 8 months. Similarly, OS is
      poor (median ~11 to 14 months). Because PROC remains a significant unmet medical need, the
      National Comprehensive Cancer Network (NCCN) guidelines recommend that platinum-resistant
      patients participate in clinical trials.

      The proposed neoadjuvant chemotherapy regimen is as follows:

      IV Carboplatin AUC 5 day 1 (Q21 days) 7 cycles (first cycle is Carbo alone) IV Mirvetuximab 6
      mg/kg (adjusted ideal body weight) day 1 (Q21 days) 6 cycles (starting with cycle #2)

      Patients will continue to receive MIRV until they present with PD per RECIST 1.1, as assessed
      by study Investigator, unacceptable toxicity, withdraw consent, or death, whichever comes
      first, or until the Sponsor terminates the study. Study treatment and/or participation in the
      study may be discontinued at any time at the discretion of the Investigator. The following
      may be reasons for the Investigator to remove a patient from the study drug:

      The patient suffers an intolerable Adverse Event (AE). Noncompliance, including failure to
      appear at one or more study visits Study treatment and/or participation in the study may be
      discontinued at any time at the discretion of the Investigator.

      The reason for treatment discontinuation must be captured in the clinical trial database. Any
      AEs experienced up to the point of discontinuation and 30 days thereafter must be documented.
      All serious adverse events (SAEs), and those AEs assessed by the Investigator as at least
      possibly related to study drug should continue to be followed until they resolve or
      stabilize, whichever comes first. Patients will continue to be followed for OS, after
      discontinuing study drug.

      For purposes of this study, the period of safety observation extends from the time of
      informed consent until the 30-Day Follow-up visit unless additional follow-up safety
      information is requested as described in Section 9.3. Short-term follow-up for patients who
      discontinue study drug without documented PD will be followed per RECIST 1.1 every 12±1 weeks
      until PD, until the patient starts new anticancer treatment, the patient dies, or the patient
      withdraws consent, whichever comes first. All patients will be followed every 3±1 months for
      survival until death, lost to follow-up, withdrawal of consent for survival or until EOS,
      whichever comes first.

      Radiographic tumor evaluation by CT or MRI of chest, abdomen, and pelvis will be performed
      within 28 days before first dose of study drug, before IDS within 21 days after C4D1, and a
      minimum of 21 days following C7D1. The same method of radiologic assessment used at Screening
      must be used at all subsequent radiographic evaluations.

      Tumor response will be assessed by the Investigator using RECIST v1.1. Response as determined
      by the Investigator will be recorded in the clinical trial database.

      The sample size will comprise of approximately 70 patients from the University of Alabama at
      Birmingham.

      The primary objective will be feasibility (the proportion of consented patients who
      successfully obtain biopsy confirmation of disease status and IHC analysis of FRα receptor
      status prior to starting treatment with mirv). The primary analysis will include all
      consenting patients. Patients who obtain both the biopsy confirm and are FRα positive will be
      considered feasibility successes. The remainder of the consenting sample will be considered
      feasibility failures, regardless of the reason for failure.

      Key Secondary Objective will be progression free survival (PFS), percentage disease free at 2
      years, ORR prior to interval debulking surgery (IDS) per iRECIST 1.1 and GCIG CA-125
      criteria, and percentage of optimal cytoreduction and pathological complete response (PCR) at
      IDS.
