PF-06952229 Treatment in Adult Patients With Advanced Solid Tumors

Trial Status: Active

A Phase 1 dose escalation and expansion study evaluating safety, tolerability and pharmacokinetics of PF-06952229 in adult patients with advanced solid tumors.

Inclusion Criteria

  • Inclusion Criteria: 1. For Part 1A: Histological or cytological diagnosis of a solid tumor that is advanced/metastatic, patients are intolerant to standard treatment, resistant to standard therapy or for which no standard therapy is available for the following tumor types: Breast cancer; Prostate cancer (mCRPC testosterone less than 50 ng/dL); Squamous cell cancer of the head and neck; Melanoma; Mesothelioma; Pancreatic cancer; Colorectal cancer; Renal cell carcinoma; Hepatocellular cancer. 2. For Part 1B, Part 2A, and Part 2B: - Histologically or cytologically confirmed prostate adenocarcinoma metastatic disease. - Effective castration with serum testosterone levels 0.5 ng/mL (1.7 nmol/L). - Having received 3 or more cycles of prior docetaxel therapy (before or after abiraterone). - Having PD while receiving abiraterone acetate within 12 months of abiraterone treatment initiation. - Progressive disease (PD) by: 1. Progression in measurable disease per RECIST 1.1 criteria. Patient with measurable disease must have at least 1 lesion that can be accurately measured in at least 1 dimension (longest diameter to be recorded). Each lesion must be at least 10 mm when measured by computed tomography (CT) (CT scan thickness no greater than 5 mm) or magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). Lymph nodes should be greater than or equal to 15 mm in short axis. As defined by PCWG2, if lymph node metastasis is the only evidence of metastasis, it must be greater than or equal to 20 mm in diameter when measured by spiral CT or MRI. Previously irradiated lesions, primary prostate lesion, and bone lesions will be considered non-measurable disease, or 2. Appearance of 2 or more new bone lesions (PCWG2). They must be confirmed by other imaging modalities (CT; MRI) if ambiguous results, or 3. Rising PSA defined (PCWG2) as at least 2 consecutive rises in PSA to be documented over a reference value (measure 1) taken at least 1 week apart. • Prior abiraterone acetate must be stopped at least 2 weeks before study treatment. 3. Patients must have recently obtained archival tumor tissue available for submission to the sponsor (except for Part 2A - monotherapy dose expansion). Patients enrolled in Part 1 and Part 2 should have access to their archival formalin-fixed paraffin-embedded material, collected within 6 months of screening, containing tumor that is of diagnostic quality and representative of their diagnosed malignancy or whenever possible, consent to undergo a biopsy during screening. The sponsor should be contacted if obtaining a new biopsy is not medically feasible for approval to enroll, prior to initiating screening activities. 4. Patients entering the study in the subgroup(s) requiring mandatory pre- and on treatment tumor biopsies in Part 2A and 2B must have a tumor amenable to biopsy and consent to these planned biopsy procedures. The sponsor should be contacted if obtaining a pre-treatment and on treatment biopsies is not medically feasible for approval to enroll, prior to initiating screening activities. 5. Age 18 years or older 6. Eastern Cooperative Oncology Group (ECOG) Performance Status (PS) 0 or 1. 7. Adequate bone marrow function (see Appendix 3), including: - Absolute Neutrophil Count (ANC) greater than or equal to 1,500/mm3; - Platelets greater than or equal to 100,000/mm3; - Hemoglobin greater than or equal to 9 g/dL. 8. Adequate renal function, including serum creatinine less than or equal to 1.5 x upper limit of normal (ULN) or estimated creatinine clearance greater than or equal to 60 mL/min as calculated using the method standard for the institution. In equivocal cases, a 24 hour urine collection test can be used to estimate the creatinine clearance more accurately. In Part 2: Serum creatinine of less than or equal to 3.0 x upper limit of normal. 9. Adequate liver function, including: - Total serum bilirubin less than or equal to 0.5 x ULN unless the patient has documented Gilbert syndrome; - Aspartate and alanine aminotransferase (AST and ALT) less than or equal to 2.5 x ULN less than or equal to 5.0 x ULN if there is liver involvement by the tumor; - Alkaline phosphatase less than or equal 2.5 x ULN less than or equal to 5 x ULN in case of bone metastasis). 10. Serum phosphate within normal range (if abnormal, must be nonclinically significant per the Investigator and approval for patient inclusion after agreement from sponsor. 11. Resolved acute effects of any prior therapy to baseline severity or CTCAE Grade 1 except for alopecia and those listed in the specific exclusion criteria. 12. For Part 1A monotherapy dose escalation: serum pregnancy test (for females of childbearing potential) negative at screening. 13. For Part 1A monotherapy dose escalation: female patients of nonchildbearing potential must meet at least 1 of the following criteria: - Achieved postmenopausal status, defined as follows: cessation of regular menses for at least 12 consecutive months with no alternative pathological or physiological cause; and must have a serum follicle stimulating hormone level confirming the postmenopausal state; - Have undergone a documented hysterectomy and/or bilateral oophorectomy; - Have medically confirmed ovarian failure. All other female patients (including female patients with tubal ligations) are considered to be of childbearing potential. 14. Evidence of a personally signed and dated informed consent document indicating that the patient has been informed of all pertinent aspects of the study. 15. Willing and able to comply with scheduled visits, treatment plan, laboratory tests, and other procedures. Exclusion Criteria Patients with any of the characteristics/conditions listed below will not be included in the study: Any labs may be repeated for confirmation.

Central Nervous System (CNS) metastases, carcinomatous meningitis, or leptomeningeal disease as indicated by baseline brain MRI (or CT with contrast if MRI is medically contraindicated), clinical symptoms, cerebral edema, and/or progressive growth. If contrast is medically contraindicated, a non-contrast CT scan may be performed. 3. Patients with a history of CNS metastases or cord compression. 4.
