Trial Information

Phase II, Open Label Study to Examine Androgen Receptor Status and the Activity of GTx-024 Hormonal Therapy in Women With Estrogen Receptor Positive Metastatic Breast Cancer Who Have Previously Responded to Hormone Therapy

Inclusion Criteria

1. Give voluntary, signed informed consent in accordance with institutional policies.

2. Be a woman that has been diagnosed with ER positive metastatic breast cancer.

3. Have metastatic breast cancer with measurable lesions prior to enrollment or bone
only disease prior to enrollment. A measurable lesion is defined as one lesion whose
longest diameter (LD) can be accurately measured as 10 mm CT or MRI technique by
using a 5 mm contiguous reconstruction algorithm. Measurable lesions must be at least
2 times the slice thickness or at least two times the size of the CT scan interval
cut. Patients with bone only disease and non-measurable lesions are eligible.

4. Be clinically confirmed as postmenopausal. Subjects must have undergone the onset of
spontaneous, medical or surgical menopause prior to the start of this
study.(Spontaneous menopause is defined as the natural cessation of ovarian function
as indicated by being amenorrheic for at least 12 months. If the subject has been
amenorrheic for > or equal to 6 months but < 12 months, they must have a serum FSH
concentration of > or equal to 50 mIU/mL and an estradiol concentration of less than
or equal to 25 pg/mL. Medical menopause is defined as treatment with a luteinizing
hormone receptor hormone agonist and surgical menopause is defined as bilateral

5. Have been treated and responded to previous adjuvant hormonal therapy for 3 years or
previous hormonal therapy for metastatic disease for 6 months prior to disease

6. Have not had radiation therapy for breast cancer within 2 weeks of randomization in
this study and are not planned to have radiation therapy during participation in this

7. Be willing to provide a formalin-fixed, paraffin-embedded block(s) of cancerous
tissue from a biopsy of a metastatic tumor lesion(s) collected during the two (2)
years prior to study entry or as a component of enrollment in the study for
determination of AR and ER status. Tissue samples from a biopsy of a primary tumor
lesion will also be provided if available.

8. Serum creatinine 2.0 mg/dL

9. Have ECOG score 2.

10. Be age 18 years.

Exclusion Criteria

Subjects with any of the following will NOT be eligible for enrollment in this study:

1. Have triple negative breast cancer

2. Have, in the judgment of the Investigator, a clinically significant concurrent
illness or psychological, familial, sociological, geographical or other concomitant
condition that would not permit adequate follow-up and compliance with the study

3. Have uncontrolled hypertension (systolic blood pressure greater than 150 mm Hg and/or
diastolic blood pressure greater than 100 mm Hg despite treatment with
antihypertensive drugs)

4. Untreated congestive heart failure or untreated angina

5. Have Stage 4 chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD)

6. Have positive screen for Hepatitis B consisting of HBsAg (Hepatitis B Surface
Antigen), unless subject was diagnosed > 10 years prior to enrollment and no evidence
of active liver disease

7. The presence of consistently abnormal clinical laboratory test (Appendix B) values
which are considered clinically significant. In addition, any subject with total
bilirubin above 2 times the upper limit of normal (ULN) or liver enzymes ( ALT/SGOT
or AST/SGPT) above 1.5 times the ULN without evidence of liver metastases or above 5
times the ULN in subjects with evidence of liver metastases will not be admitted to
the study

8. Have positive screen for hepatitis A antibody IgM or HIV

9. Have received chemotherapy for metastatic breast cancer within the 3 months prior to
enrollment in the study or be expected to receive chemotherapy for metastatic breast
cancer during the study

10. Be currently taking testosterone, methyltestosterone, oxandrolone
(Oxandrin®),oxymetholone, danazol, fluoxymesterone (Halotestin®), testosterone-like
agents (such as dehydroepiandrosterone (DHEA), androstenedione, and other androgenic
compounds, including herbals), or antiandrogens. Previous therapy with testosterone
and testosterone-like agents is acceptable with a 30-day washout (if previous
testosterone therapy was long term depot within the past 6 months, the site should
contact the medical monitor (1-877-693-2723) for this study to determine appropriate
washout period).

11. Have untreated or uncontrolled brain metastasis

12. Have been diagnosed with or treated for cancer within the previous two years, other
than breast cancer or non-melanoma carcinoma of the skin.
