Trial Description

Summary

This phase I/II trial studies the safety and the appropriate dose of cediranib maleate and olaparib and how well cediranib maleate and olaparib work compared to olaparib alone in treating patients with recurrent ovarian, fallopian tube, peritoneal cancer, or triple-negative breast cancer. Cediranib maleate may help keep cancer cells from growing by affecting their blood supply. Olaparib may stop cancer cells from growing abnormally. The combination of cediranib maleate and olaparib may help to keep cancer from growing.

Further Study Information

PRIMARY OBJECTIVES:

I. Assess the maximum tolerated dose (MTD) of cediranib (cediranib maleate) in combination with olaparib in the treatment of recurrent ovarian, fallopian tube, or peritoneal cancer or metastatic triple-negative breast cancer. (Phase I) II. Assess the efficacy (as measured by progression-free survival [PFS]) of the combination of cediranib and olaparib compared to olaparib alone in recurrent grade 2 or 3 platinum-sensitive papillary-serous or endometrioid ovarian, fallopian tube, or peritoneal cancer. (Phase II) III. Assess the MTD of cediranib in combination with olaparib tablet formulation in the treatment of recurrent ovarian, fallopian tube, or peritoneal cancer. (Phase I-T)

SECONDARY OBJECTIVES:

I. Assess the toxicities of the combination of cediranib and olaparib in the treatment of recurrent ovarian, fallopian tube, or peritoneal cancer or metastatic triple-negative breast cancer. (Phase I) II. Assess clinical benefit, progression-free survival, and overall survival for patients treated with cediranib and olaparib. (Phase I) III. Assess tumor response, clinical response benefit (response or stable disease as defined by Response Evaluation Criteria in Solid Tumors [RECIST] response criteria x 16 weeks), and overall survival (OS) for patients treated with cediranib and olaparib at the recommended phase II dose (RP2D) as compared with patients receiving olaparib alone. (Phase II) IV. Assess the toxicities of the combination of cediranib and olaparib (tablet formulation) in the treatment of recurrent ovarian, fallopian tube, or peritoneal cancer. (Phase I-T) V. Assess clinical benefit, progression-free survival, and overall survival for patients treated with cediranib and olaparib (tablet formulation). (Phase I-T)

TERTIARY OBJECTIVES:

I. To evaluate the prognostic and predictive role of measured changes in functional vascular imaging using delayed contrast-enhanced (DCE)-magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) between pre-study and day 3. (Phase II) II. To evaluate in an exploratory fashion the predictive or prognostic value of single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) in key genes involved in angiogenesis and deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA) repair. (Phase II) III. To evaluate the predictive value of baseline peripheral blood mononuclear cells (PBMC) poly adenosine diphosphate (ADP) ribose (PAR) incorporation on response to therapy. (Phase II) IV. To measure early changes in vascular cytokine production and evaluate in an exploratory fashion that these changes may be predictive or prognostic, or differentially affected by the combination of agents. (Phase II) V. To evaluate early changes to circulating endothelial cells and if these changes are predictive or prognostic. (Phase II) VI. To assess changes in measures of DNA damage and repair and angiogenesis in tumor cells (tissue and/or malignant effusions) and correlate to drug/drug/combination. (Phase II)

OUTLINE: This is a phase I, dose-escalation study of cediranib maleate and olaparib followed by a randomized phase II study.

ARM I: Patients receive cediranib maleate orally (PO) once daily (QD) and olaparib PO twice daily (BID) on days 1-28.

ARM II: Patients receive olaparib PO BID on days 1-28.

Courses repeat every 28 days in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity.

After completion of study treatment, patients are followed up every 6 months for up to 3 years.
