Details and patient eligibility

About

This is a study to determine the recommended dose of birabresib (MK-8628)(formerly known as OTX015) for further studies in participants with advanced nuclear protein in testis (NUT) midline carcinoma (NMC), triple negative breast cancer (TNBC), non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC), or castration-resistant prostate cancer (CRPC). This is a two-part parallel study: Part A will establish the recommended dose by evaluating dose limiting toxicity (DLT), safety, discontinuation, and early efficacy and Part B will enroll participants with NMC only and will evaluate safety and efficacy in this population.

Full description

The sponsor decided to terminate the program after evaluation of safety and efficacy data at the dose levels tested (Part A). The decision to discontinue the birabresib program was based on limited efficacy signals and was not due to safety-related concerns. No participants entered or were treated in Part B of the study.

  • CRPC participants must maintain ongoing androgen deprivation therapy with a gonadotropin releasing hormone (GnRH) analogue, antagonist or orchiectomy providing serum testosterone is <50 ng/dL (<1.7 nmol/L)
  • Participants receiving bisphosphonate or denosumab therapy must be on stable doses for at least 4 weeks before start of study therapy
  • Females must not be pregnant (negative urine or serum human chorionic gonadotropin test within 72 hours of study start)
  • Females of childbearing potential and male participants must agree to use adequate contraception starting with the first dose of trial treatment through 90 days after the last dose of study medication

Exclusion criteria

  • Has inability to swallow oral medications or presence of a gastrointestinal disorder (e.g. malabsorption) deemed to jeopardize intestinal absorption of birabresib

  • Known primary central nervous system (CNS) malignancy or symptomatic or untreated CNS metastases. Treated and stable CNS metastases are allowed.
  • History of prior or concomitant malignancies within 3 years of study start
  • Have other serious illness or medical condition, such as active infection, unresolved bowel obstruction, psychiatric disorders, or cerebrovascular accident within 1 year of study start
  • Known human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) and/or active Hepatitis B or C infections
  • Have one of the following cardiac-related conditions: Congestive heart failure or angina pectoris (except if medically controlled); myocardial infarction (within 1 year of study start); uncontrolled hypertension; or uncontrolled arrhythmias
  • Other concomitant anticancer treatment
  • Participation in another clinical trial or treatment with any investigational drug (excluding anticancer treatments) within 30 days of study start
  • Concomitant therapy with strong CYP3A4 inhibitors or inducers
  • Therapeutic anticoagulation (e.g. warfarin, heparin, etc.) must be stopped at least 7 days prior to the first dose of birabresib. Low-dose low molecular weight heparin (LMWH) is permitted
  • Is pregnant or breast-feeding

13 participants in 4 patient groups

Birabresib 20 mg CRPC Cohort-Part A
Experimental group
Description:
Participants in the CRPC cohort in Part A of the study received birabresib 20 mg orally (PO), twice a day (BID), in a fasted state for 21 consecutive days per cycle. Participants received birabresib in continuous cycles up to 24 months.
Treatment:
Drug: Birabresib
Birabresib 20 mg NMC Cohort-Part A
Experimental group
Description:
Participants in the NMC cohort in Part A of the study received birabresib 20 mg PO, BID, in a fasted state for 21 consecutive days per cycle. Participants received birabresib in continuous cycles up to 24 months.
Treatment:
Drug: Birabresib
Birabresib 20 mg TNBC Cohort-Part A
Experimental group
Description:
Participants in the TNBC cohort in Part A of the study received birabresib 20 mg PO, BID, in a fasted state for 21 consecutive days per cycle. Participants received birabresib in continuous cycles up to 24 months.
Treatment:
Drug: Birabresib
NMC Cohort-Part B
Experimental group
Description:
Participants (up to 30) in Part B will receive birabresib at one dose level below the dose currently being administered in Part A of the study. Once the recommended Phase 2 dose (RP2D) from Part A is established, participants in Part B will receive birabresib at the RP2D. Participants will continue receiving birabresib at an assigned/adjusted dose level for continuous cycles up to 24 months.
Treatment:
Drug: Birabresib
