Trial Information

An Open-Label, Multicenter, Randomized, Phase Ib/II Study of E7080 in Combination With Carboplatin + Gemcitabine Versus Carboplatin + Gemcitabine Alone as Second Line Therapy in Patients With Platinum-Sensitive Recurrent Ovarian Cancer by CA125.


This open-label, multicenter, randomized study will consist of a Phase Ib portion: a safety
run-in period with 3 ascending doses of E7080 administered in combination with carboplatin +
gemcitabine; and a Phase II portion: a randomized 2-arm period. Approximately 100 patients
with ovarian cancer will be enrolled in the study (10-20 patients in the Phase Ib portion
and 80 patients in the Phase II portion). Patients will only participate in either the
Phase Ib or the Phase II portion. Patients will receive study treatment (E7080 plus
carboplatin + gemcitabine or carboplatin + gemcitabine) for approximately six 21-day cycles
(18 weeks). Patients who receive E7080 and experience evidence of clinical benefit (CR, PR,
or SD) may continue single agent E7080 beyond 18 weeks, until the occurrence of progressive
disease (PD), unacceptable toxicity, withdrawal of consent, or withdrawal by investigator,
whichever occurs first.


Inclusion Criteria:



Subjects may be in the study only if they meet all of the following criteria.

1. Female patients greater than or equal to 18 years of age.

2. Histologically or cytologically confirmed ovarian epithelial, fallopian tube, or
primary peritoneal cavity cancer that was treated with and was sensitive to one prior
platinum-based chemotherapy regimen for Stage III or Stage IV disease.

3. Documentation of biochemical relapse defined by CA125 criteria (measurable or
non-measurable by Response Evaluation Criteria in Solid Tumors version 1.1 (RECIST
criteria), more than six months since completion of first-line platinum-based
chemotherapy requiring treatment with further platinum-based chemotherapy. CA125
criteria for relapse Gynecologic Cancer Intergroup (GCIG) criteria are the finding of
2 serum CA125 levels with samples taken at least 1 week apart and no greater than 3
months apart:

- greater than or equal to 2 x ULN in patients with an elevated pre-treatment
serum CA125 level followed by normalization on treatment and prior to
progression OR

- greater than or equal to 2X nadir value for patients with an elevated
pre-treatment CA125 that never normalizes).

4. Gynecological Oncology Group performance status of 0 or 1

5. Life expectancy greater than or equal to 3 months

6. Patients must have recovered from effects of any major surgery within 28 days from
the first dose of study treatment.

7. Adequate hematologic, renal, liver, and coagulation system function as defined by
laboratory values performed within 21 days prior to initiation of dosing.

- Platelet count greater than or equal to 100 x 109/L

- Hemoglobin greater than or equal to 9 g/dL

- Serum creatinine less than or equal to 1.5 X ULN and/or creatinine clearance 50
dL/min

- Total serum bilirubin less than or equal to 1.5 X ULN

- Serum aspartate transaminase (AST/SGOT) or serum alanine transaminase (ALT/SGPT)
less than or equal to 2.5 X ULN, and less than or equal to 5 X ULN in cases of
liver metastasis

- PT/International normalized ratio (INR) less than or equal to 1.5 X ULN

screening) with or without antihypertensive medication. Patients must have no
history of hypertensive crisis or hypertensive encephalopathy;

9. Patients should have a negative pregnancy test at screening in pre-menopausal women
and women less than 2 years after the onset of menopause. Pre-menopausal women must
agree to use an acceptable method of birth control from the time of the negative
pregnancy test up to 90 days after the last dose of study drug. Women of
non-childbearing potential may be included if they are either surgically sterile or
have been postmenopausal for greater than or equal to 1 year;

10. Before study entry, written informed consent must be obtained from patient prior to
performing any study-related procedures.

Exclusion Criteria:

Patients will not be entered in the study for any of the following reasons:

1. Pregnant, breast-feeding, or refusing double barrier contraception, oral
contraceptives or avoidance of pregnancy measures;

2. Prior anti-angiogenic therapy with anti-VEGFR inhibitors; bevacizumab is allowed;

3. Prior gemcitabine;

4. Subjects with proteinuria greater than 1+ on urine dipstick testing will undergo

treated carcinoma in situ of the cervix or non-melanoma skin cancer, with no
subsequent evidence of recurrence;

7. History of, or known carcinomatous meningitis;

radiotherapy) aside from control of symptoms;

9. Received treatment in another clinical study within the 30 days prior to commencing
