I. To evaluate the efficacy of trastuzumab and pertuzumab (TP) in HER-2 amplified metastatic colorectal cancer (mCRC) by comparing progression-free survival (PFS) on TP compared to control arm of cetuximab and irinotecan hydrochloride (irinotecan) (CETIRI).
I. To evaluate the overall response rate (ORR), including confirmed complete and partial response per Response Evaluation Criteria in Solid Tumors (RECIST) 1.1, in the TP and CETIRI treatment arms.
II. To evaluate the overall survival (OS) in the TP and CETIRI treatment arms.
III. To evaluate the safety and toxicity of TP compared to CETIRI.
I. To estimate the rates of PFS, OS, and ORR in patients who crossover to TP after disease progression on CETIRI.
II. To bank images for future retrospective analysis.
I. To evaluate if the following are predictive of clinical efficacy (PFS and ORR) for patients receiving TP versus CETIRI:
Ia. HER-2/CEP17 signal ratio.
Ib. HER-2 gene copy number (GCN).
II. To bank tissue and blood samples for other future correlative studies from patients enrolled on the study.
OUTLINE: Patients with HER2 gene amplification are randomized to 1 of 2 arms.
ARM I: Patients receive pertuzumab intravenously (IV) over 30-60 minutes and trastuzumab IV over 30-120 minutes on day 1. Cycles repeat every 21 days in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity.
ARM II: Patients receive cetuximab IV over 60-120 minutes and irinotecan hydrochloride IV over 90 minutes on day 1. Cycles repeat every 14 days in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity. Patients with documented disease progression may optionally crossover to Arm I.
After completion of study treatment, patients are followed up every 8 weeks until disease progression, then every 6 months for 3 years.
