Anti-hormonal maintenance Treatment with or without the cdk4/6 Inhibitor Ribociclib after 1st line chemotherapy in Hormone receptor positive/ HER2 negative metastatic breast cancer. A Phase II Trial.
Phase II, , Investigator initiierte Studie (IIT), Multizentrisch, International
>= 18 Jahre
Inclusion Criteria: Written informed consent prior to beginning specific protocol procedures, including expected cooperation of the patients for the treatment and follow-up, must be obtained and documented according to the local regulatory requirements. Female patients. Age ≥ 18 years old. Histologically confirmed HER2-/HR+ locally advanced or metastatic invasive breast carcinoma assessed on the primary tumor and/or on the metastatic lesions (preferred). Willingness and ability to provide archived formalin fixed paraffin embedded tissue block or a partial block from primary surgery and/or tumor or metastasis biopsy, which will be used for further breast cancer research. Maintenance endocrine therapy could have already been started up to 6 weeks before randomization, but after achievement of tumor response or stable disease. Maintenance therapy must be preceded prior to randomization by at least 4 cycles of a mono- or polychemotherapy. Tumor response or stable disease needs to be maintained to allow entry into the trial. Study treatment must start within 8 weeks of the last dose of chemotherapy. Previous therapy with maximum one line of anti-hormonal treatment is allowed. Previous neoadjuvant/adjuvant therapy is allowed. In case of cancer other than breast cancer, treatment should be completed more than 5 years before study entry. Eastern Cooperative Oncology Group (ECOG) performance status (PS) 0-1. Resolution of all acute toxic effects of prior anti-cancer therapy or surgical procedures to NCI CTCAE version 4.03 Grade ≤ 1 (except alopecia or other toxicities not considered a safety risk for the patient at investigator's discretion). The patient must be accessible for scheduled visits, treatment and follow-up. Patients registered on this trial must be treated at the participating center which could be the Principal or a Co- investigator's site. Life-expectancy > 6 months. The subjects need to be either A) of non-childbearing potential (documented postmenopausal or post hysterectomy) or B) childbearing potential with negative urinary pregnancy test (in this case patients need to use highly effective non-hormonal contraceptive). Exclusion Criteria: Uncontrolled/untreated central nervous system lesions. Known severe hypersensitivity reactions to compounds similar to one of the investigational (active substance or peanut, soya or other excipients) and supportive treatment. Inadequate organ function immediate prior to randomization including: Hemoglobin < 10 g/dL Absolute neutrophil count (ANC) < 2000/mm³ (< 2.0 x 109/L) Platelets < 100,000/mm³ (< 100 x 109/L) Alanine aminotransferase (ALAT/SGPT) and/or aspartate aminotransferase (ASAT/SGOT) > 2.0 x upper normal limits (ULN). If the patient has liver metastases, ALT and AST should not be ≥5 ULN. Alkaline phosphatase (ALP) > 2.5 x ULN Total serum bilirubin > 1.5 x ULN Serum creatinine >1.5 x ULN or estimated creatinine clearance < 60 mL/min as calculated using the method standard for the Institution Severe and relevant comorbidity that would interact with the participation in the study. Previous malignant disease being disease-free for less than 5 years (except CIS of the cervix and non-melanomatous skin cancer). Evidence for active infection including wound infections and anamnestic HIV or hepatitis. QTc >450 msec or a family or personal history of long or short QT syndrome, Brugada syndrome or known history of QTc prolongation, or Torsade de Pointes. Uncontrolled electrolyte disorders that can compound the effects of a QTc prolonging drug (i.e. hypocalcemia, hypokalemia, hypomagnesemia). Any of the following within 6 months prior to randomization: myocardial infarction, severe/unstable angina, ongoing cardiac dysrhythmias of NCI CTCAE version 4.03 grade ≥ 2, atrial fibrillation of any grade, coronary/peripheral artery bypass graft, symptomatic congestive heart failure, cerebrovascular accident including transient ischemic attack, or symptomatic pulmonary embolism. Other severe acute, uncontrolled or chronic medical or psychiatric condition or laboratory abnormality that may increase the risk associated with study participation or investigational product administration or may interfere with the interpretation of study results and, in the judgment of the investigator, would make the patient inappropriate for entry into this study. Concurrent treatment with other experimental drugs. Participation in another clinical trial with any investigational not marketed drug within 30 days prior to study entry. Patients treated within the last 7 days prior to randomization with drugs known to be CYP3A4 inhibitors or inducers (see section 11.4) or drugs that are known to prolong the QT interval. Pregnant and lactating women.
