Study of XL147 or XL765 in Combination With Letrozole in Subjects With Breast Cancer

2014-08-27 03:15:24 | BioPortfolio

Summary

Phase 1 of this study will evaluate the maximum tolerated dose (MTD) of XL147 when given in combination with letrozole (Femara) and of XL765 when given in combination with letrozole. After the MTD is established for each combination (Phase 2), subjects will be enrolled to evaluate the preliminary efficacy and safety of these combinations in subjects with breast cancer refractory to a non-steroidal aromatase inhibitor that is ER+/PGR+ and HER2-. Letrozole is used in the treatment of different types of breast cancer, but patients can develop resistance.

Upregulation of PI3K activity is one of the most common characteristics of human cancer cells, including breast tumor cells. Activation of PI3K results in stimulation of AKT and mTOR kinases, resulting in the promotion of tumor cell proliferation and survival. Preclinical and retrospective clinical data suggest that aberrant activation of the PI3K pathway may play a role in aromatase inhibitor resistance in patients with ER+, HER2- breast cancer. XL147 is a potent inhibitor of PI3K, and XL765 is a potent dual inhibitor of PI3K and mTOR; therefore either of these compounds in combination with letrozole warrants clinical investigation.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Abnormal accumulation of lymph in the arm, shoulder and breast area associated with surgical or radiation breast cancer treatments (e.g., MASTECTOMY).

Metastatic breast cancer characterized by EDEMA and ERYTHEMA of the affected breast due to LYMPHATIC METASTASIS and eventual obstruction of LYMPHATIC VESSELS by the cancer cells.

A infiltrating (invasive) breast cancer, relatively uncommon, accounting for only 5%-10% of breast tumors in most series. It is often an area of ill-defined thickening in the breast, in contrast to the dominant lump characteristic of ductal carcinoma. It is typically composed of small cells in a linear arrangement with a tendency to grow around ducts and lobules. There is likelihood of axillary nodal involvement with metastasis to meningeal and serosal surfaces. (DeVita Jr et al., Cancer: Principles & Practice of Oncology, 3d ed, p1205)

A deoxycytidine derivative and fluorouracil PRODRUG that is used as an ANTINEOPLASTIC ANTIMETABOLITE in the treatment of COLON CANCER; BREAST CANCER and GASTRIC CANCER.

Carbohydrate antigen elevated in patients with tumors of the breast, ovary, lung, and prostate as well as other disorders. The mucin is expressed normally by most glandular epithelia but shows particularly increased expression in the breast at lactation and in malignancy. It is thus an established serum marker for breast cancer.
