Trial Information

A Phase II Study of MK-2206 (NSC-749607) as Second Line Therapy for Advanced Gastric and Gastroesophageal Junction Cancer


I. To estimate the overall survival (OS) for patients with advanced gastric and
gastroesophageal junction (GEJ) adenocarcinoma treated with MK-2206.


I. To estimate the progression free survival (PFS) in this patient population. II. To
estimate the response rate (confirmed and unconfirmed complete response [CR] and partial
response [PR] by Response Evaluation Criteria In Solid Tumors [RECIST] 1.1) in this patient

III. To assess the frequency and severity of toxicity associated with this regimen.

OUTLINE: This is a multicenter study.

Patients receive Akt inhibitor MK2206 orally (PO) once daily (QD), every other day, for 28
days. Courses repeat every 28 days in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable

After completion of study therapy, patients are followed up every 3 months for 2 years.

Inclusion Criteria:

- Histologically or cytologically confirmed adenocarcinoma of the stomach or
gastroesophageal (GE) junction

- Disease that has progressed after first-line regimen or is recurrent within the
past 6 months after adjuvant therapy

- Measurable disease by computed tomography (CT) scans or magnetic resonance imaging
(MRI) within the past 28 days

- No known brain metastases

- More than 3 weeks since prior chemotherapy or radiotherapy (6 weeks for nitrosoureas
or mitomycin C)

- No prior PI3, AKT, or Mtor inhibitor for any reason

- Able to tolerate oral medications

- No malabsorption or chronic diarrhea (>= grade 2)

- No feeding tube

- Hemoglobin >= 9 g/dL

- Absolute neutrophil count (ANC) >= 1,500/mcL

- Platelet count >= 100,000/mcL

- Total bilirubin =< institutional upper limit of normal

- Aspartate aminotransferase (AST) and alanine aminotransferase (ALT) =< 2.5 x
institutional upper limit of normal (IULN) (=< 5.0 times IULN for patients with liver

- Serum creatinine =< IULN OR calculated creatinine clearance > 50 mL/min

- International normalized ratio (INR) =< 1.2 (unless taking therapeutic warfarin)

- Fasting blood sugar =< 150 mg/dL

- Hemoglobin A1C < 7%

- QTcF < 450 msec (male) or QTcF < 470 msec (female)

- Zubrod performance status 0-1

- None of the following:

- History of congenital long QT syndrome

- New York Heart Association (NYHA) class III or IV heart failure

- History of myocardial infarction within the past 6 months

- Uncontrolled dysrhythmia

- Poorly controlled angina

- Resting heart rate =< 50 bpm (bradycardia)

- At least 2 weeks since prior and no concurrent drugs that are strong inducers or
inhibitors of CYP3A4

- No uncontrolled intercurrent illness including, but not limited to, any of the

- Ongoing or active infection

- Symptomatic congestive heart failure

- Unstable angina pectoris

- Cardiac arrhythmia

- Psychiatric illness and/or social situations that would limit compliance with
study requirements

- No concurrent combination antiretroviral therapy for human immunodeficiency virus
(HIV)-positive patients

- Patient must not be pregnant or nursing because of the risk of fetal or infant harm;
women/men of reproductive potential must have agreed to use two forms of
contraception for the duration of protocol treatment and for one month after
discontinuation of MK-2206; a woman is considered to be of "reproductive potential"
if she has had menses at any time in the preceding 12 consecutive months; in addition
to routine contraceptive methods, "effective contraception" also includes
heterosexual celibacy and surgery intended to prevent pregnancy (or with a side
effect of pregnancy prevention) defined as a hysterectomy, bilateral oophorectomy or
bilateral tubal ligation; however, if at any time a previously celibate patient
chooses to become heterosexually active during the time period for use of
contraceptive measures outlined in the protocol, he/she is responsible for beginning
contraceptive measures

- More than 5 years since another malignancy except adequately treated basal cell or
squamous cell skin cancer, in situ cervical cancer, or adequately treated stage I or
II cancer for which the patient is currently in complete remission

- All patients must be informed of the investigational nature of this study and must
sign and give written informed consent in accordance with institutional and federal
