Summary of "Pharmacokinetics of the Investigational Aurora A Kinase Inhibitor Alisertib in Adult Patients With Advanced Solid Tumors or Relapsed/Refractory Lymphoma With Varying Degrees of Hepatic Dysfunction."

This clinical trial was designed to evaluate the effect of moderate or severe hepatic impairment on the single-dose pharmacokinetics (PK) of the investigational anticancer agent, alisertib, in adult patients with advanced solid tumors or lymphoma. Patients with normal hepatic function (total bilirubin and alanine transaminase [ALT] ≤ upper limit of normal [ULN]), moderate hepatic impairment (1.5 × ULN < total bilirubin ≤ 3 × ULN, with any ALT) or severe hepatic impairment (total bilirubin > 3 × ULN, with any ALT), received a single 50-mg oral dose of alisertib. Blood samples for PK were collected up to 168 hours postdose. Predose samples were also used to assess alisertib plasma protein binding. Patients could continue to receive alisertib for 7 days in 21-day cycles (50, 30, or 10 mg twice daily for normal hepatic function, moderate hepatic impairment, and severe hepatic impairment, respectively). Alisertib was approximately 99% protein bound in all hepatic function groups. Alisertib exposure was similar in moderate and severe hepatic impairment groups, but higher than the normal hepatic function group. The geometric least-squares mean ratios (90% confidence intervals) for unbound alisertib area under the curve extrapolated to infinity for moderate/severe impairment groups versus the normal hepatic function group was 254% (184%, 353%). Patients with moderate or severe hepatic impairment have approximately 150% higher unbound alisertib exposures compared with patients with normal hepatic function. An approximately 60% reduction of the starting dose of alisertib in patients with moderate/severe hepatic impairment is recommended based on pharmacokinetic considerations.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Aurora kinase C is a chromosomal passenger protein that interacts with aurora kinase B in the regulation of MITOSIS. It is found primarily in GERM CELLS in the TESTIS, and may mediate CHROMOSOME SEGREGATION during SPERMATOGENESIS.

An aurora kinase that localizes to the CENTROSOME during MITOSIS and is involved in centrosome regulation and formation of the MITOTIC SPINDLE. Aurora A overexpression in many malignant tumor types suggests that it may be directly involved in NEOPLASTIC CELL TRANSFORMATION.

An aurora kinase that is a component of the chromosomal passenger protein complex and is involved in the regulation of MITOSIS. It mediates proper CHROMOSOME SEGREGATION and contractile ring function during CYTOKINESIS.

A pyrimidine and thiazole derived ANTINEOPLASTIC AGENT and PROTEIN KINASE INHIBITOR of BCR-ABL KINASE. It is used in the treatment of patients with CHRONIC MYELOID LEUKEMIA who are resistant or intolerant to IMATINIB.

A key regulator of CELL CYCLE progression. It partners with CYCLIN E to regulate entry into S PHASE and also interacts with CYCLIN A to phosphorylate RETINOBLASTOMA PROTEIN. Its activity is inhibited by CYCLIN-DEPENDENT KINASE INHIBITOR P27 and CYCLIN-DEPENDENT KINASE INHIBITOR P21.
