Trial Information

A Phase I/II Trial of Temsirolimus Plus Neratinib for Patients With Metastatic HER2-Amplified or Triple Negative Breast Cancer


Phase I Design

A standard, 3+3, dose escalation schedule will be used. Between 6 and 12 patients will
likely be necessary to determine the MTD of temsirolimus in combination with neratinib.
There will be no intrapatient dose escalation. The starting dose of temsirolimus is 8 mg
administered intravenously weekly (dose level 1). Three patients will initially be enrolled
in each cohort. The Phase I portion is closed to enrollment.

Phase II Design

The phase II portion of this trial will be comprised of two cohorts—HER2-amplified and
triple negative breast cancer—each of which has a Simon two-stage design to determine the
efficacy of temsirolimus when administered in combination with neratinib. Both pathologic
subtypes of patients will be studied separately though accrual will be simultaneous.
Response (RECIST criteria) will be assessed every 8 weeks (every 2 cycles) after the start
of therapy. As of 2/10/12, the Triple-negative cohort is closed to accrual. The HER2-
amplified cohort will continue to enroll as planned up to a total of 34 patients.


Inclusion Criteria:



Phase I HER2-Amplified Cohort

- HER2 overexpression and/or amplification as determined by immunohistochemistry (3+)
or FISH (≥2.0)

- Previously received trastuzumab as part of a regimen in the adjuvant or metastatic
setting with evidence of progression. Washout period for trastuzumab of 14 days.

- May have previously received lapatinib as part of a regimen in the adjuvant or
metastatic setting with evidence of progression of disease. Washout period for
lapatinib of 14 days.

- Radiographic progression of disease while on treatment with trastuzumab or lapatinib
as defined by RECIST 1.1 criteria.

- No restriction on prior chemotherapy regimens for advanced stage disease. No
restriction for prior hormonal therapy. No concurrent use of endocrine therapy is
permitted.

Phase II HER2-Amplified Cohort

- HER2 overexpression and/or amplification as determined by immunohistochemistry (3+)
or FISH (≥2.0).

- Previously received trastuzumab as part of a regimen in the adjuvant or metastatic
setting with evidence of progression. Washout period for trastuzumab of 14 days.

- May have previously received lapatinib as part of a regimen in the adjuvant or
metastatic setting with evidence of progression of disease. Washout period for
lapatinib of 14 days.

- Radiographic progression of disease while on treatment with trastuzumab as defined by
RECIST 1.1 criteria.

- Prior therapy inclusion:

- No more than four prior chemotherapy regimens allowed for advanced stage disease. No
restriction for prior hormonal therapy. No concurrent use of endocrine therapy is
permitted.

Phase I Triple-negative Cohort

- Invasive adenocarcinoma negative for estrogen receptor (<5%) and progesterone
receptor (<5%) expression and a lack of HER2 overexpression and/or amplification as
determined by immunohistochemistry (<3+) or FISH (<2.0).

- No restriction on prior chemotherapy regimens for advanced stage disease.

- No restriction for prior hormonal therapy. No concurrent use of endocrine therapy is
permitted.

Phase II Triple-negative Cohort - As of 2/10/12, this cohort is closed to accrual

- Invasive adenocarcinoma negative for estrogen receptor (<5%) and progesterone
receptor (<5%) expression and a lack of HER2 overexpression and/or amplification as
determined by immunohistochemistry (<3+) or FISH (<2.0).

- Prior therapy inclusion:

- No more than four prior chemotherapy regimens allowed for advanced stage disease. No
restriction for prior hormonal therapy. No concurrent use of endocrine therapy is
permitted.

Inclusion Criteria for ALL subjects (HER2-Amplified and Triple-negative)

- Patients with a diagnosis of invasive adenocarcinoma of the breast confirmed by
histology or cytology at MSKCC.

- Metastatic disease that is or has been pathologically documented.

- At least one measurable metastatic lesion according to RECIST 1.1 criteria. Ascites,
pleural effusions, and bone metastases are not considered measurable. Minimum
indicator lesion size ≥ 10 mm by helical CT or ≥ 20 mm by conventional techniques.

- Pathological nodes must be ≥ 15 mm by the short axis to be considered measurable.

- Age ≥ 18, as no dosing or adverse event data are currently available on the use of
neratinib or temsirolimus in patients <18 years of age, children are excluded from
this study.

- Able and willing to consent for biopsy of metastatic breast cancer prior to
treatment. Consent to preservation of frozen and fixed samples of tumor cores for
evaluation. (HER2-amplified patients who have previously provided samples of
metastatic breast cancer as part of IRB #06-163 will be exempt).

- Consent to evaluation of primary tumor biopsy specimen.

- Patients must be willing to discontinue sex hormonal therapy, e.g., birth control
pills, hormonal replacement therapy, prior to enrollment. Women of childbearing
potential must consent to effective contraception while on treatment and for a period
thereafter.

- Negative serum HCG pregnancy test for premenopausal women of reproductive capacity
and for women less than 12 months after menopause.

- Asymptomatic, central nervous system metastases are permitted if patients remain
clinically stable after discontinuation of steroids and anticonvulsants for 3 months.

- Eastern Cooperative Oncology Group (ECOG) performance status score of ≤2.

- Patients must have normal organ and marrow function: AST/ALT ≤2.5x institutional
upper limit of normal except for patients with liver metastases. For patients with
liver metastases, AST/ALT/Alkaline phosphatase ≤5.0x institutional upper limit of
normal. Total bilirubin within institutional limits except for patients with liver
metastases. For patients with liver metastases, total bilirubin ≤1.5x institutional
upper limit of normal. Creatinine clearance within normal limits or ≥ 60mL/min, PT
and PTT ≤1.5x institutional upper limit of normal except for patients on Coumadin or
low molecular weight heparin, leukocytes ≥3,000/μl, absolute neutrophil count
≥1,000/μl, and platelets ≥75,000/μl

- Able to swallow and retain oral medication.

Exclusion Criteria:

- Potential subjects will be excluded from enrollment into this study if they meet any
of the following criteria:

- Patients receiving any concurrent anticancer therapy or investigational agents with
the intention of treating breast cancer.

- History of allergic reactions attributed to compounds of similar chemical or biologic
composition to neratinib or temsirolimus.

- Unable to consent to biopsy of metastatic disease or for whom a biopsy would be
medically unsafe.
