Trial Information

Phase 1/2 Study of PX-866 and Docetaxel in Patients With Solid Tumors

This is a Phase 1/2 open-label study. In the Phase 1 part of the study, PX-866 was given in
combination with docetaxel to patients with incurable locally advanced, recurrent or
metastatic cancer.

Phase 2 of the study is an open-label, randomized evaluation of the antitumor activity and
safety of PX-866, administered at the MTD/RD identified in Phase 1 (8mg daily), in
combination with docetaxel versus docetaxel alone in patients with locally advanced,
recurrent, or metastatic NSCLC (Group 1) or patients with locally advanced, recurrent, or
metastatic SCCHN (Group 2).

Group 1 (patients with locally advanced, recurrent, or metastatic NSCLC) is now closed to

All treatments will be administered on a 21-day cycle. Docetaxel 75 mg/m2 will be
administered IV on Day 1 of each 21-day cycle. PX-866 will be administered orally or via PEG
tube (if applicable) once per day on Days 1 to 21 of all treatment cycles in patients
randomized to the treatment arm containing PX-866.

Patients will be evaluated for progression approximately every 6 weeks. Patients with stable
disease (SD) or better, per investigator assessment, will receive repeat cycles of treatment
on a 21-day schedule until disease progression, unacceptable toxicity or withdrawal of

board or independent ethics committee (IRB/IEC)

- Has either locally advanced, recurrent, or metastatic NSCLC for which they have
received at least 1 and no more than 2 prior systemic treatment regimens that may
include up to 1 platinum based chemotherapy regimen and/or an epidermal growth factor
receptor (EGFR) inhibitor OR locally advanced, recurrent or metastatic SCCHN for
which they have received at least one and no more than two prior systemic treatment

- Measurable disease per Response Evaluation Criteria In Solid Tumors

- Eastern Cooperative Oncology Group (ECOG) 0 or 1

- In the opinion of the clinical investigator, life expectancy >3 months

- Adequate hematologic function as defined by:

- Hemoglobin ≥ 9 g/dL

- Absolute neutrophil count (ANC) ≥1500 cells/µL

- Platelets ≥100,000/µL

- Adequate hepatic function as defined by the following:

- Bilirubin ≤ ULN

- Aspartate aminotransaminase (AST/SGOT) and alanine aminotransferase (ALT/SGPT)
≤1.5 x upper limit of normal (ULN)

- Creatinine level ≤1.5 x ULN

Exclusion Criteria:

- Has medical, social, or psychosocial factors that, in the opinion of the
investigator, could impact safety or compliance with study procedures

- Is breastfeeding

- Treatment with any systemic chemotherapy, epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR)
inhibitor, radiation or experimental agent within 4 weeks of study drug dosing.
Washout period following palliative radiation should be discussed with the study
medical monitor

brain metastases are allowable. Stable brain metastases are defined as no change on
CT scan or MRI for minimum of two months AND no change in steroid dose for a minimum
of four weeks, unless change due to intercurrent infection or other acute event

- Grade >2 peripheral neuropathy, as defined by the National Cancer Institute (NCI)
Common Terminology Criteria for Adverse Events (CTCAE), Version 4.02
