A Phase II, Multicenter, Single-Arm, Feasibility Study of Eribulin in Combination With Capecitabine for Adjuvant Treatment in Estrogen Receptor-Positive Early Stage Breast Cancer




A Phase II, Multicenter, Single-Arm, Feasibility Study of Eribulin in Combination With Capecitabine for Adjuvant Treatment in Estrogen Receptor-Positive Early Stage Breast Cancer (USON 10065)

Study Description:

This is a Phase 2, multicenter, single-arm, feasibility study evaluating eribulin in combination with capecitabine as an adjuvant chemotherapy regimen in approximately 65 subjects with early-stage (I-II), human epidermal growth factor receptor 2 (HER2)- normal, estrogen receptor (ER)-positive breast cancer.

Inclusion Criteria:

» Male subjects aged ≥ 18 years and female subjects who must be postmenopausal (at least 12 months consecutive amenorrheic or have had a bilateral oophorectomy or, if they have had a hysterectomy but with ovaries intact, then females must be age 55 or older and with postmenopausal follicle-stimulating hormone [FSH] levels).
» Subject is a candidate for chemotherapy in the adjuvant setting. Adjuvant therapy must begin within 84 days of the final surgical procedure for breast cancer.
» Histologically confirmed Stage I to II invasive breast cancer. Subjects may have more than one synchronous primary breast tumor.
» HER2-normal as determined by a negative fluorescence in situ hybridization (FISH) result or 0 to 1+ by immunohistochemistry (IHC) staining result
» ER-positive, node-negative or ER-positive Grade 1 or 2 node-positive breast cancer
» ECOG performance status of 0 or 1
» Adequate renal function as evidenced by serum creatinine ≤ 1.5 mg/dL or calculated creatinine clearance ≥ 50 mL/min per the Cockcroft and Gault formula
» Adequate bone marrow function as evidenced by ANC ≥ 1.5 x 109/L, hemoglobin ≥ 10.0 g/dL, and platelet count ≥ 100 x 109/L
» Adequate liver function as evidenced by bilirubin ≤ 1.5 times the upper limits of normal (ULN) and alkaline phosphatase, alanine aminotransferase (ALT), and aspartate aminotransferase (AST) ≤ 3 x ULN
» Male subjects must have had a successful vasectomy (confirmed azoospermia), or their female partners must not be of childbearing potential, or male subjects must agree to use and have their female partners use a highly effective method of contraception (e.g., total abstinence, an intrauterine device, a double-barrier method [such as condom plus diaphragm with spermicide] throughout the entire study period and for 30 days after study drug discontinuation..
» Voluntary agreement to provide written informed consent and willingness and ability to comply with all aspects of the protocol

Exclusion Criteria:

» Stage III and IV invasive breast cancer
» Prior chemotherapy, radiation therapy, immunotherapy or biotherapy for current breast cancer
» Nonmalignant systemic disease (cardiovascular, renal, hepatic, etc) that would preclude any of the study therapy drugs
» Subjects with a concurrently active second malignancy other than adequately treated nonmelanoma skin cancers or in situ cervical cancer
» Subjects with pre-existing neuropathy > Grade 2
» Subjects with known positive human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) status
» Females of childbearing potential. Females will be considered to be of childbearing potential unless they are postmenopausal (at least 12 months consecutive amenorrheic or have had a bilateral oophorectomy or, if they have had a hysterectomy but with ovaries intact, then females must be age 55 or older and with postmenopausal FSH levels).
» Subjects with current gastrointestinal disease or other condition resulting in an inability to take or absorb oral medications
» Subjects with known allergy or hypersensitivity to eribulin mesylate or its excipients, or to fluoropyrimidine therapy (with or without documented dihydropyrimidine dehydrogenase [DPD] deficiency)
» A clinically significant electrocardiogram (ECG) abnormality, including a marked baseline prolongation of QT/QTc interval (time between the start of the Q wave and the end of the T wave / QT interval corrected for heart rate) (e.g., repeated demonstration of a QTc interval > 500 ms)
» Any medical or other condition which, in the opinion of the investigator, would preclude participation in a clinical trial
