About

Randomized phase III trial of trastuzumab + Alpelisib +/- fulvestrant versus trastuzumab + chemotherapy in patients with PIK3CA mutated previously treated HER2+ Advanced Breast cancer.

Full description

This is an international, multicenter, open-label, controlled phase III randomized clinical trial in HER2+ advanced breast cancer (ABC) patients harboring PIK3CA mutation. Approximately 300 patients (144 in the Hormone Receptor (HR)- cohort and 156 in the HR+ cohort) will be enrolled. Central screening of PIK3CA mutations on the most recent available formalin-fixed paraffinembedded (FFPE) tumor sample is required for the purpose of eligibility. Investigators will be encouraged to send the most recent tumor tissue, preferably from a metastatic lesion. However, if this is not possible, archived tissue samples either from primary tumor or metastatic lesion will be acceptable. Local screening of HR and HER2 status is required (although there will be a central confirmation done retrospectively). Once the screening process (locally at each site and at the central laboratory) is completed, fully eligible patients will be randomized in a 1:1 fashion to the control arm with trastuzumab plus chemotherapy (CT) or to the experimental arm with trastuzumab + alpelisib +/- fulvestrant (depending on HR status). The two patient cohorts defined according to HR status will be randomized separately, with randomization in each cohort stratified by prior treatment with pertuzumab (yes vs no) and number of prior anti-HER2 based therapy lines for MBC (≤2 vs >2). In both cohorts patients will continue to receive their assigned treatment until objective disease progression, symptomatic deterioration, unacceptable toxicity, death, or withdrawal of consent, whichever occurs first. After objective disease progression, patients in both treatment arms will be followed until death or withdrawal of consent. In order to perform exploratory biomarker analysis, pre-treatment tumor and sequential blood samples (at baseline, at week 9, at the end of treatment (EOT), and at progressive disease (PD)) will be obtained. Additionally, blood samples from approximately 100 patients (50 HR+ and 50 HR-) screened and without PIK3CA mutation will be collected.

Inclusion criteria

Patients are eligible to be enrolled for randomization in the study only if they meet all of the following criteria: 1. Written informed consent prior to any specific study procedures, showing patient willingness to comply with all study procedures. 2. Histologically or cytologically documented locally recurrent inoperable or metastatic breast cancer with HER2+ status based on local laboratory determination, preferably on the most recent available FFPE tumor sample, and according to American Society of ClinicalOncology (ASCO)/College of American Pathologists (CAP) international guidelines valid at the time of the assay. In case of discordance in HER2+ status in different biopsies, we will consider the result from the most recent biopsy one will be used. 3. Documented HR status based on local laboratory, preferably on the most recent available FFPE tumor sample, and according to ASCO/CAP international guidelines valid at the time of the assay. In case of discordance in HR status in different biopsies, the result from the most recent biopsy will be used. HR+ will be defined as ≥1% positive cells by immunohistochemistry for Estrogen Receptor (ER) and/or Progesterone Receptor (PgR). HR- will be defined as \<1% positive cells by immunohistochemistry for both ER and PgR. Considering that there are limited data on endocrine therapy benefit for cancers with 1% to 10% of cells staining ER positive, for the purpose of this study, patients with ER and PgR expression between 1 and 10% (considered to be HR low by the most recent ASCO/CAP guidelines) will be eligible for inclusion in the HR- cohort. 4. Patients with a PIK3CA tumor mutation at central laboratory determination, preferably on the most recent available FFPE tumor sample. 5. At least 1 but no more than 5 prior lines of anti-HER2 based therapy for metastatic breast cancer (MBC). Maintenance therapy will not count as an additional line of therapy. 6. At least 1 prior line of trastuzumab in the metastatic setting, or in the (neo)adjuvant setting (provided the patient relapsed while on therapy or within 6 months after completing adjuvant trastuzumab). 7. Female or male patient is at least 18 years of age. 8. Eastern Cooperative Oncology Group (ECOG) Performance Status 0-1. 9. Patients can be either males or premenopausal/perimenopausal or postmenopausal females. In the HR+ cohort, males and females who are not post-menopausal must have been on a gonadotropin-releasing hormone (GnRH) agonist (e.g. goserelin or leuprorelin) for at least 28 days prior to starting study treatment. Premenopausal status is defined as either: * Last menstrual period occurred within the last 12 months, or * If on tamoxifen: last menstrual period occurred within the past 14 days, plasma estradiol is ≥ 10 pg/mL and follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH) ≤ 40 IU/l or in the premenopausal range, according to local laboratory definition, or * In case of therapy induced amenorrhea: plasma estradiol is ≥ 10 pg/mL and FSH ≤ 40 IU/l or in the premenopausal range, according to local laboratory definition. Postmenopausal status is defined as either: - Natural (spontaneous) amenorrhea lasting more than 12 months and either age from49 to 59 years and/or history of vasomotor symptoms (e.g., hot flush) in the absence of other medical justification, or Levels of plasma estradiol ≤ 20 pg/mL and follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH) ≥ 40 IU/l or in the postmenopausal range, according to local laboratory definition, or Surgical bilateral oophorectomy. Perimenopausal status is defined as neither premenopausal nor postmenopausal. 10. Measurable disease or at least one evaluable bone lesion, lytic or mixed (lytic+blastic), which has not been previously irradiated and is assessable by computer tomography (CT)/magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) in the absence of measurable disease according to RECIST 1.1 criteria. 11.
