Onvansertib in Combination With FOLFIRI and Bevacizumab for Second Line Treatment of Metastatic Colorectal Cancer Patients With a Kras Mutation

Trial Status: Active

The purpose of the Phase 1b / 2 study is to determine the safety and efficacy of Onvansertib, administered orally, daily, for 5 consecutive days on Day 1-5 of each 14-day course in each 28-day cycle, in combination with FOLFIRI + Avastin, as second-line treatment in adult patients who have metastatic colorectal cancer with a Kras mutation. Participants must have histologically confirmed metastatic and unresectable disease, and previously failed treatment or be intolerant to fluoropyrimidine and oxaliplatin with or without bevacizumab.

Inclusion Criteria

  • Histologically confirmed metastatic and unresectable CRC.
  • Kras mutation in exon 2, 3 or 4 in primary tumor or metastasis, assessed by a CLIA-certified lab. Subjects with concomitant Kras and BRAF-V600 utations are excluded from this study. Subjects with MSI-H/ddMMR (Microsatellite Instability High/Deficient Mismatch Repair) are also ineligible for enrollment in this study.
  • Age ≥ 18 years.
  • ECOG Performance Status of 0 or 1.
  • Subject is not receiving any other cancer therapy. Patients participating in surveys or observational studies are allowed.
  • Has failed treatment or is intolerant of fluoropyrimidine and oxaliplatin with or without bevacizumab. 6a. All patients must have received a minimum of 6 weeks of the first line regimen that included oxaliplatin and a fluoropyrimidine with or without bevacizumab in the same cycle. Treatment failure is defined as radiologic progression during or < 6 months after the last dose of first-line therapy. 6b. Patients who show tumor progression while on maintenance therapy with a fluoropyrimidine with or without bevacizumab after prior fluoropyrimidine-oxaliplatin with or without bevacizumab induction therapy are eligible. Rechallenge with oxaliplatin is permitted and will be considered part of the first-line regimen for metastatic disease, with both initial oxaliplatin treatment and subsequent rechallenge being considered as one regimen. 6c. Patients who received oxaliplatin/fluoropyrimidine-based neoadjuvant or adjuvant therapy and have disease recurrence or progression > 6 months from their last dose of neoadjuvant or adjuvant treatment (or > 6 months from surgery if no adjuvant therapy was administered) will be required to receive fluoropyrimidine/oxaliplatin-based therapy with or without bevacizumab for metastatic disease. 6d. For participants with rectal cancer, sequential neoadjuvant and adjuvant therapy will count as a single systemic regimen. 6e. Patients who discontinued first-line therapy because of toxicity may be enrolled for as long as progression occurred < 6 months after the last dose of first-line therapy.
  • FOLFIRI therapy is appropriate for the patient as determined by the Investigator.
  • WOCBP must have a negative serum or urine pregnancy test within 5 days prior to enrollment. 8a. WOCBP include any female who has experienced menarche and who has not undergone successful surgical sterilization (hysterectomy, bilateral tubal ligation or bilateral oophorectomy) or is not postmenopausal (defined as amenorrhea > 12 consecutive months); or women on hormone replacement therapy (HRT) with documented serum follicle stimulating hormone (FSH) level > 35 mIU/mL. Even women who are using oral, implanted or injectable contraceptive hormones or mechanical products such as an IUD or barrier methods (diaphragm, condoms, spermicides) to prevent pregnancy or practicing abstinence or where partner is sterile (e.g., vasectomy), should be considered to be of child-bearing potential.
  • Imaging CT/MRI of chest/abdomen/pelvis or other scans as necessary to document all sites of disease performed within 21 days prior to enrollment. Only patients with measurable disease are eligible for enrollment.
  • Must have acceptable organ function. 11. Patient must consent to provision of, and Investigator(s) must confirm access to and agree to submit a representative, formalin fixed, paraffin block of tumor tissue to be used for correlative marker assays. Submission of the tissue does not have to occur prior to enrollment.
  • Signed informed consent to provide blood sample(s) for specific correlative assays.

Exclusion Criteria

  • Concomitant Kras and BRAF-V600 mutations or MSI-H/dMMR (Microsatellite Instability High/Deficient Mismatch Repair)
  • Anti-cancer chemotherapy or biologic therapy administered within 4 weeks prior to the first dose of study drug. The exception is a single dose of radiation up to 8 Gray (equal to 800 RAD) with palliative intent for pain control up to 14 days before randomization.
  • More than one prior chemotherapy regimen administered in the metastatic setting.
  • Major surgery within 6 weeks prior to randomization.
  • Untreated brain metastasis.
  • Women who are pregnant or breastfeeding.
  • Gastrointestinal (GI) disorder(s) that, in the opinion of the Investigator, would significantly impede the absorption of an oral agent (e.g., intestinal occlusion, active Crohn's disease, ulcerative colitis, extensive gastric and small intestine resection).
  • Unable or unwilling to swallow study drug.
  • Uncontrolled intercurrent illness including, but not limited to, ongoing or active infection, clinically significant non-healing or healing wounds, symptomatic congestive heart failure (CHF) Class II or higher according to the New York Heart Association (NYHA) Functional Classification), unstable angina pectoris, clinically significant cardiac arrhythmia, significant pulmonary disease (shortness of breath at rest or mild exertion), uncontrolled infection or psychiatric illness/social situations that would limit compliance with study requirements. 9a. Known active infection with Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV), with measurable viral titer, and/or active infection with hepatitis B or C (patients who have had a hepatitis B virus [HBV] immunization are eligible). 9b. Clinically significant ascites or pleural effusions. 10. Known hypersensitivity to 5-fluorouracil/leucovorin. 11. Known hypersensitivity to irinotecan. 12. Abnormal glucuronidation of bilirubin, known Gilbert's syndrome. 13. Patients with a history of other malignancies except: adequately treated non-melanoma skin cancer, curatively treated in-situ cancer of the cervix, or other solid tumors curatively treated with no evidence of disease for > 2 years.
  • Any active disease condition that would render the protocol treatment dangerous or impair the ability of the patient to receive study drug.
  • Planned concomitant use of medications known to prolong the QT/QTc interval.
  • Presence of risk factors for torsade de pointes, including family history of Long QT Syndrome or uncorrected hypokalemia.
  • The following are exclusion criteria for bevacizumab: 17a. History of cardiac disease: congestive heart failure (CHF) Class II or higher according to the New York Heart Association (NYHA); active coronary artery disease, myocardial infarction within 6 months prior to study entry; unevaluated new onset angina within 3 months or unstable angina (angina symptoms at rest) or cardiac arrhythmias requiring anti arrhythmic therapy (beta blockers or digoxin are permitted).
