RO4929097 in Treating Patients With Advanced, Metastatic, or Recurrent Breast Cancer

2014-08-27 03:12:37 | BioPortfolio

Summary

RATIONALE: RO4929097 may stop the growth of tumor cells by blocking some of the enzymes needed for cell growth.

PURPOSE: This phase II clinical trial is studying how well RO4929097 works in treating patients with advanced, metastatic, or recurrent breast cancer.

Description

OBJECTIVES:

Primary

- To assess the antitumor activity of gamma-secretase inhibitor RO4929097 in patients with advanced, metastatic, and/or recurrent triple-negative breast cancer through the co-primary endpoints of overall response rate using RECIST and 6-month progression-free survival (PFS).

Secondary

- To assess the antitumor activity of gamma-secretase inhibitor RO4929097 through secondary endpoints, including duration of radiologic response, PFS rate, and overall survival rate.

- To assess the safety and tolerability of gamma-secretase inhibitor RO4929097 in patients with breast cancer.

- To explore the expression of Notch biomarkers in triple-negative breast cancer and potential interaction with gamma-secretase inhibitor RO4929097 response and toxicity. (exploratory)

- To evaluate the downstream effects of gamma-secretase inhibitor RO4929097 in patients with advanced triple-negative breast cancer. (exploratory)

OUTLINE: This is a multicenter study.

Patients receive oral gamma-secretase inhibitor RO4929097 once daily on days 1-3, 8-10, and 15-17. Treatment repeats every 21 days in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity.

Patients undergo biopsy at baseline and at 4-5 weeks and blood samples are collected periodically for correlative laboratory studies.

After completion of study treatment, patients are followed up monthly for 12 months and then every 3 months thereafter.
