A Phase 2, Multicenter Study of the Effect of the Addition of SNDX-275 to Continued Aromatase Inhibitor (AI) Therapy in Postmenopausal Women With ER+ Breast Cancer Whose Disease is Progressing
1. Postmenopausal female patients.
2. Histologically or cytologically confirmed ER+ breast cancer.
3. Progressive disease (PD) after at least 3 months on treatment with a 3rd generation
AI in the advanced disease setting as measured by RECIST criteria.
4. At least 1 measurable lesion ≥ 20 mm by conventional techniques or ≥ 10 mm by spiral
CT scan with the last imaging performed within 4 weeks prior to study entry. If there
is only one measurable lesion and it is located in previously irradiated field, it
must have demonstrated progression according to RECIST criteria.
5. ECOG 0-1.
6. Laboratory parameters:
1. Hemoglobin ≥ 9.0 g/dL; platelets ≥ 100 x109/L; ANC ≥ 1.5 x 109/L without the use
of hematopoietic growth factors.
2. Creatinine less than 2.5 times the upper limit of normal for the institution.
3. AST and ALT less than 2.5 times the upper limit of normal for the institution.
7. Able to understand and give written informed consent and comply with study
1. Discontinuation of AI therapy prior to study entry.
2. Less than 3 months treatment with most recent AI.
3. Rapidly progressive, life-threatening metastases, including any of the following:
1. Symptomatic lymphangitic metastases.
2. Patients with known active brain or leptomeningeal involvement.
4. More than one prior chemotherapy for metastatic disease.
5. Any chemotherapy within 3 months prior to study.
6. Radiotherapy to measurable lesion within 2 months prior to study.
7. Bisphosphonates initiated within 4 weeks prior to study start.
8. Allergy to benzamides or inactive components of study drug.
9. Previous treatment with entinostat or any other HDAC inhibitor including valproic
10. Patient is currently receiving treatment with any agent listed on the prohibited
medication list such as valproic acid or other systemic cancer agents
11. Any concomitant medical condition that precludes adequate study treatment compliance
or assessment, or increases patient risk in the opinion of the investigator:
1. Myocardial infarction or arterial thromboembolic events within 6 months, or
experiencing severe or unstable angina, New York Heart Association (NYHA) Class
III or IV disease and a QTc interval >0.47 second.
2. Uncontrolled heart failure or hypertension, uncontrolled diabetes mellitus,
uncontrolled systemic infection,
3. Other active malignancy within 5 years excluding basal cell carcinoma or
cervical intraepithelial neoplasia [CIN / cervical carcinoma in situ] or
melanoma in situ).
12. Patient currently is enrolled in (or completed within 30 days before study drug
administration) another investigational drug study.
