Details and patient eligibility


This is a Phase 3, multicenter, randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled study evaluating the safety and efficacy of trilaciclib versus placebo administered prior to gemcitabine and carboplatin in patients receiving first- or second-line treatment for locally advanced unresectable/metastatic TNBC.

Full description

This study will have two separate cohorts (Cohort 1 and Cohort 2). Both cohorts will follow the same general study conduct/design with similar primary and key secondary endpoints and identical treatment arms. Cohort 1 will evaluate patients receiving first-line therapy, regardless of programmed death-ligand 1 (PD-L1) status, who are programmed cell death protein 1 (PD-1)/PD-L1 inhibitor therapy naïve. Cohort 2 will evaluate PD-L1 positive patients receiving second-line therapy following prior PD-1/PD-L1 inhibitor therapy in the locally advanced unresectable/metastatic setting.


194 patients




18+ years old


No Healthy Volunteers

Inclusion criteria

  1. Age >/= 18 years of age with evaluable locally advanced unresectable or metastatic TNBC.

  2. Documentation of triple negative breast cancer (estrogen and progesterone receptor <1% and HER2-negative)

  3. Prior systemic therapies (Cohort 1 only):

    1. No prior systemic therapy in the locally advanced unresectable/metastatic setting including chemotherapy, targeted therapy, immunotherapy, or investigational agents.
    2. Prior PD-1/PD-L1 inhibitor treatment is not permitted in any setting, including in the neoadjuvant setting.
    3. Time between completion of last treatment with curative intent and first metastatic recurrence must be ≥ 6 months.
  4. Prior systemic therapies (Cohort 2 only):

    1. Documentation of PD-L1 positive status
    2. Treated with a PD-1/PD-L1 inhibitor for a minimum duration of 4 months in the locally advanced unresectable/metastatic setting and as the most recent therapy.
  5. Radiation therapy for metastatic disease is permitted. There is no required minimum washout period for radiation therapy. Patients should be recovered from the effects of radiation.

  6. Archival tumor tissue must be available or a fresh biopsy must be obtained, unless approved by the Medical Monitor.

  7. Eastern Cooperative Oncology Group (ECOG) performance status of 0 or 1

  8. Adequate organ function as demonstrated by normal laboratory values

Exclusion criteria

  1. Prior treatment with gemcitabine in any setting.

  2. Prior treatment with carboplatin in the locally advanced unresectable/metastatic setting.

    Prior carboplatin in the (neo)adjuvant/curative setting is permitted as long as it was completed ≥ 6 months prior to the first metastatic recurrence.

  3. Presence of central nervous system (CNS) metastases and/or leptomeningeal disease requiring immediate treatment with radiation therapy or steroids.

  4. Receipt of any cytotoxic chemotherapy within 14 days prior to the first dose of study drugs.

  5. QTcF interval >480 msec at Screening (confirmed in triplicate). For patients with ventricular pacemakers, QTcF >500 msec.

  6. Known hypersensitivity to carboplatin or other platinum-containing compounds, or mannitol

  7. Pregnant or lactating women

  8. Prior hematopoietic stem cell or bone marrow transplantation
