Trial Information

A Phase II Trial of SCH 727965 (NSC 747135) in Patients With Stage IV Melanoma


I. To assess the 1-year overall survival rate in patients with stage IV melanoma treated
with dinaciclib.


I. To assess the 6-month progression-free survival rate in these patients. II. To evaluate
the response rate (confirmed and unconfirmed complete and partial responses) in the subset
of patients with measurable disease.

III. To assess the safety and tolerability of dinaciclib given to patients with stage IV

OUTLINE: This is a multicenter study.

Patients receive dinaciclib IV over 2 hours on day 1. Treatment repeats every 21 days in the
absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity.

After completion of study treatment, patients are followed up every 6 months for up to 3

- ANC ≥ 1,500/mm^3

- Platelet count ≥ 100,000/mm^3

- Hemoglobin ≥ 9 g/dL

- Serum bilirubin ≤ 1.5 times upper limit of normal (ULN) (including patients with
hepatic metastases)

- SGOT or SGPT ≤ 2.5 times ULN (≤ 5 times ULN in the presence of hepatic metastases)

- Serum creatinine ≤ 1.5 times ULN

- Not pregnant or nursing

- Fertile patients must use effective contraception

- No other prior malignancy except for adequately treated basal cell or squamous cell

the patient has been disease-free for 5 years

- No prior therapy with a cyclin-dependent kinase inhibitor

- At least 14 days since prior radiotherapy

- At least 28 days since prior systemic chemotherapy

- At least 28 days since prior adjuvant systemic therapy

- At least 28 days since prior surgery

hormonal therapy, or a combination regimen) for stage IV melanoma and any side
effects must have resolved to ≤ grade 1

- Any number of prior adjuvant systemic therapy regimens allowed, including interferon
alfa-2b, GM-CSF, chemotherapy, and chemobiotherapy

- Therapy for stage IV resected free-of-disease will be considered adjuvant

- Prior radiotherapy allowed provided any side effects have resolved to ≤ grade 1

- Prior surgery (for both the primary and stage IV disease) allowed provided side
effects have resolved to ≤ grade 1

- No other concurrent or planned non-study treatment (including chemotherapy, hormonal
therapy, biologic therapy, or radiotherapy)
