Phase I/II Study of Dasatinib in Combination With Zoledronic Acid for the Treatment of Breast Cancer With Bone Metastasis


The Study Drugs:

Zoledronic acid is designed to strengthen the bone and prevent fractures or breaks in the
bone. Dasatinib is designed to block (stop) cells responsible for the breakdown of bone.

Study Groups:

If you are found to be eligible to take part in this study, you will be enrolled in a group
of at least 3 participants to begin receiving zoledronic acid and dasatinib. The dose of
dasatinib you receive will depend on when you enrolled in this study. All participants will
receive the same amount of zoledronic acid. The first group of participants will be treated
with the lowest dose of dasatinib given in combination with zoledronic acid.

Once the highest tolerable dose level is found, up to 25 additional participants will be
enrolled at that dose level. This is called the Phase II portion of the study.

Drug Administration:

You will receive zoledronic acid through a needle in your vein on Day 1 over 15 minutes. You
will take dasatinib by mouth daily for 28 days. Dasatinib should be taken on an empty
stomach or after a light meal. Every 28 days is called a study "cycle."

Study Visits for Participants in the Phase I Portion:

On Day 1 of Cycle 1, you will have the following tests and procedures performed.

- You will have a physical exam, including measurement of your vital signs.

- You will have a performance status evaluation.

- Blood (about 1-2 teaspoons) will be drawn for routine tests.

- You will have an ECG.

On Day 8 of Cycle 1, you will have the following tests and procedures performed.

- Blood (about 1-2 teaspoons) will be drawn for routine tests.

- You will have an ECG.

On Day 15 of Cycle 1, you will have the following tests and procedures performed.

- You will have a physical exam.

- You will have a performance status evaluation.

On Day 21 of Cycle 1, you will have the following tests and procedures performed.

- Your vital signs will be measured.

- Blood (about 1-2 teaspoons) will be drawn for routine tests.

- You will have an ECG.

On Day 1 of Cycle 2, you will have an ECG.

On Day 1 of all other cycles, you will have the following tests and procedures performed.

- You will have a physical exam.

- You will have a performance status evaluation.

- Blood (about 1-2 teaspoons) will be drawn for routine tests.

On Days 1 and 28 of Cycle 1 and then every 3rd month, urine will be collected over 24 hours
to check for markers of bone loss.

After Cycles 3, 6, 9 and so on, you will have CT scans, MRIs, and/or x-rays to check the
status of the disease

At all study visits, you will be asked about any drugs you may be taking and any side
effects you may be experiencing.

the disease gets worse or you experience intolerable side effects.

End-of-Study Visit:

Once you go off-study, you will have an end-of-study visit.

- Your vital signs will be measured.

This is an investigational study. Zoledronic acid is FDA approved and commercially
available for the treatment of breast cancer. Dasatinib is not FDA approved or commercially
available for the treatment of breast cancer. It has been authorized for use in research
only. Up to 28 patients will take part in this multicenter study. Up to 12 will be
enrolled at MD Anderson.


Inclusion Criteria:



1. Patients must have a pathologically confirmed diagnosis of invasive carcinoma of the
breast.

2. Patients must carry a diagnosis of metastatic breast cancer with predominant bone
involvement. For the purposes of this study, predominant bone involvement will be
defined as radiographically detected bone metastasis in the presence or absence of
other sites of metastatic breast cancer (i.e. visceral involvement). If visceral
involvement is present, patients must be asymptomatic and have no tumors in visceral
organs that measure >3cm in size.

3. Patients must agree to serial urine collections for measurement of Ntx.

4. Age >/= 18 years.

5. Patients must be able to swallow oral medications. Dasatinib must be taken whole and
cannot be crushed.

6. Patients must have evaluable disease using WHO Criteria for Assessment of Disease
Response in Bone or MDACC Modified Response Criteria for Assessment of Disease
Response in Bone.

7. Patients must not have had >1 chemotherapy regimens for metastatic disease. Patients
with metastasis diagnosed considered to have had chemotherapy for metastatic breast cancer.

8. Patients with ER positive disease must have had disease progression on at least one
prior hormonal therapy for metastatic disease. Patients must also have developed
disease progression on their most recent hormonal therapy regimen and be agreeable to
continue this regimen in combination with protocol therapy. For the purposes of this
study disease progression while receiving hormonal therapy will be defined as:
Radiographic evidence of progressive disease according to RECIST criteria,
Progression of disease by physical exam in patients with skin involvement. Continued
in # 9

9. Continuation from # 8: 25% increase in tumor marker as measured on two evaluations no
less than 72 hours apart.

10. Patients must have and ECOG performance status of
11. Patients must not require concurrent radiation or chemotherapy while receiving
protocol therapy.

antibiotics. The use of oral antibiotics as prophylaxis is allowed.

13. Patients must have a baseline ECG with QTc within the normal range within 28 days
prior to registration.

14. Patients must be informed of the investigational nature of the study and must sign
and give written informed consent.

15. Patients may have received previous radiation but must have completed radiation at
least 2 weeks (8 weeks for radiation to the brain) prior to registration. Patients
with irradiated tumor as the only site of evaluable disease will not be eligible for
protocol therapy unless there is documented disease progression within the previously
radiated site.

16. Patients must have recovered to grade radiation or hormonal therapy.

17. Adequate hematologic and hepatic function: Granulocyte count >/= 1,500/mcL, Platelet

prescribed by the study.

19. Sexually active patients with reproductive potential must agree to use an effective
method of birth control during the course of the study and for no less than 4 weeks
after discontinuing study drug. Contraceptives must be used in a manner such that
risk of failure is minimized. Oral contraceptives should be avoided in women with
estrogen or progesterone receptor positive breast cancer.

20. Prior to study enrollment, women of childbearing potential (WOCBP) must be advised of
the importance of avoiding pregnancy during trial participation and the potential
risk factors for an unintentional pregnancy. In addition, men enrolled on this study
should understand the risks to any sexual partner of childbearing potential and
should practice an effective method of birth control.

21. All WOCBP MUST have a negative serum or urine pregnancy test within 72 hours prior to
the start of study drug administration. If the pregnancy test is positive, the
patient must not receive investigational product and must not be enrolled in the
study.

22. Patients with disease progression while receiving previous therapy in combination
with bisphosphonates (including zoledronic acid) will be considered eligible for
protocol participation.
