NCT02142803 : TORC1/2 Inhibitor MLN0128 and Bevacizumab in Treating Patients With Recurrent Glioblastoma or Advanced Solid Tumors
PhasePhase 1
AgesMin: 18 Years Max: N/A
Inclusion Criteria:

- Patients must have a histologically/cytologically confirmed diagnosis of recurrent
glioblastoma or an advanced solid tumor in which bevacizumab has shown benefit in
specific disease population and for which standard or curative measures do not exist
or are no longer effective

- Measurable or evaluable disease as assessed by Response Evaluation Criteria in Solid
Tumors (RECIST) 1.1 for non-GBM tumors and by Response Assessment in Neuro-Oncology
(RANO) criteria for GBM

- For stage 1 (all patients) and dose expansion (stage 2) endometrial and ovarian cancer
cohorts, participants are allowed following unlimited prior therapy; for stage 2 GBM
participants, no more than 2 prior relapses are allowed; for these patients, relapse
is defined as progression following initial therapy (i.e. radiation +/- chemo if that
was used as initial therapy) or a subsequent therapy; the intent therefore is that GBM
patients enrolling onto stage 2 had no more than 3 prior therapies (initial and
treatment for 2 relapses); if the patient had a surgical resection for relapsed
disease and no anti-cancer therapy was instituted for up to 12 weeks, and the patient
undergoes another surgical resection, this is considered to constitute 1 relapse

- NOTE: for participants who had prior therapy for a low-grade glioma, the surgical
diagnosis of glioblastoma will be considered the first relapse; therefore, these
participants may have had more than 3 prior therapies

- Patients must have recovered from clinically significant toxicity of prior therapy to
grade =< 1 or pre-treatment baseline; the following intervals from previous treatments
are required prior to day 1 of study therapy:

- 12 weeks from the completion of radiation for recurrent GBM unless there is
surgical diagnosis of recurrence or a new lesion that was not previously radiated

- 6 weeks from a nitrosourea chemotherapy

- 3 weeks from a non-nitrosourea chemotherapy

- 4 weeks from an investigational agent (not Food and Drug Administration [FDA]
approved) (or 5 half lives, whichever is shorter)

- 2 weeks from administration of a non-cytotoxic, FDA-approved agent (e.g.,
erlotinib, hydroxychloroquine, etc.) (or 5 half lives, whichever is shorter)

- Eastern Cooperative Oncology Group (ECOG) performance status =< 2 (Karnofsky >= 60%)

- Absolute neutrophil count >= 1,500/uL

- Platelets >= 100,000/uL

- Hemoglobin >= 9.0 g/dL

- Total bilirubin < 1.5 x institutional upper limit of normal with direct bilirubin
within normal limits except for participants with Gilbert's disease

- Aspartate aminotransferase (AST) (serum glutamic oxaloacetic transaminase
[SGOT])/alanine aminotransferase (ALT) (serum glutamate pyruvate transaminase [SGPT])
=< 2.5 x institutional upper limit of normal (=< 5 x upper limit of normal [ULN] if
liver metastases are present)

- Creatinine < 1.5 x normal institutional limits OR creatinine clearance >= 50
mL/min/1.73 m^2 for patients with creatinine level above institutional normal based
either on Cockroft-Gault estimate or based on urine collection (12 or 24 hour)

- Metabolic: fasting serum glucose (=< 130 mg/dL) and fasting triglycerides =< 300 mg/dL

- Women of child-bearing potential and men must agree to use adequate contraception
(hormonal or barrier method of birth control; abstinence) prior to study entry, the
duration of study participation and 6 months after completion of MLN 0128 or
bevacizumab administration; should a woman become pregnant or suspect she is pregnant
while she or her partner is participating in this study, she should inform her
treating physician immediately; men treated or enrolled on this protocol must also
agree to use adequate contraception prior to the study, for the duration of study
participation, and 6 months after completion of MLN0128 or bevacizumab administration

- Patients must have no concurrent malignancy except curatively treated basal or
squamous cell carcinoma of the skin or carcinoma in situ of the cervix, breast, or
bladder; patients with prior malignancies must be disease-free for >= three years
prior to registration

- Solid tumor patients must be off corticosteroids prior to registration; if GBM patient
is receiving corticosteroids, patient must be on a stable or decreasing dose of
corticosteroids for at least 5 days prior to baseline magnetic resonance imaging (MRI)
or computed tomography (CT); if steroids are added or the steroids dose is increased
between the date of the screening MRI or CT and the start of treatment, a new baseline
MRI or CT is required

- Patients must be able to swallow whole capsules

- Ability to understand and the willingness to sign a written informed consent document

- For stage 2 GBM participants, a block of paraffin embedded tissue or 30 unstained
slides at standard 4-5 um thickness from any prior surgery demonstrating GBM pathology
must be available for submission

- Stage 2 endometrial and ovarian cancer patients must have at least one lesion amenable
to biopsy; this determination will be made by a member of the interventional radiology
team or surgical associate investigator and an associate investigator; this
requirement is not necessary for patients in stage 1

- Solid tumor patients in stage 2 must have a diagnosis of papillary serous,
endometrioid or clear cell endometrial carcinoma or, high grade serous, clear cell,
endometrioid or mucinous ovarian, fallopian or primary peritoneal carcinoma

Exclusion Criteria:

- Concurrent administration of any other investigational agents

- History of allergic reactions attributed to compounds of similar chemical or biologic
composition to MLN0128 or bevacizumab

- For all stage 2 participants, no prior treatment with mTOR, PI3 kinase or Akt
inhibitors; prior treatment with mTOR, PI3 kinase or Akt inhibitors allowed in stage 1

- For stage 2 GBM participants, no prior treatment with bevacizumab/vascular endothelial
growth factor receptor (VEGFR) inhibitors; prior treatment with bevacizumab/VEGFR
inhibitors is allowed in stage 1 for all participants, as well as stage 2 endometrial
and ovarian cancer participants

- Stage 1 solid tumor and stage 2 endometrial and ovarian cancer participants with known
central nervous system (CNS) metastatic lesions which are symptomatic and/or growing;
patients previously treated for these conditions that are asymptomatic in the absence
of corticosteroid therapy are allowed to enroll; brain metastasis must be stable for 1
month with verification by imaging (brain MRI completed at screening demonstrating no
current evidence of progressive brain metastases); CNS imaging will not be mandated
for asymptomatic patients with no history of CNS metastases

- Concurrent use of enzyme-inducing anti-epileptic drugs (EIAED); patients may be on
non-enzyme inducing anti-epileptic drugs or not be taking any anti-epileptic drugs;
patients previously treated with EIAED may be enrolled if they have been off the EIAED
for 10 days or more prior to the first dose of MLN0128

- Subjects taking strong cytochrome P450, family 3, subfamily A, polypeptide 4 (CYP3A4)
and cytochrome P450, family 2, subfamily C, polypeptide 19 (CYP2C19) inhibitors and/or
inducers should be considered with caution; alternative treatments that are less
likely to affect MLN0128 metabolism, if available, should be considered; if a subject
requires treatment with 1 or more of the strong CYP3A4 and CYP2C19 inhibitors and/or
inducers, the principal investigator should be consulted

- Concurrent use of herbal supplements and other non-traditional medications; all herbal
supplements and other non-traditional medications must be stopped before time of
