Phase I

A Phase I, Open Label, Multicenter, Dose-escalation Study of BI 907828 in Adult Patients With Wild-type TP53 Enriched Advanced Solid Tumors and Expansion in Patients With MDM2 Amplified Advanced Solid Tumors

  • Study HIC#:2000022608
  • Last Updated:05/07/2024

Phase Ia - The main objective of the dose-escalation part of the trial is to determine the maximum tolerated dose (MTD), based on the frequency of patients experiencing dose limiting toxicities (DLT) during the first treatment cycle, and the recommended dose for expansion (RDE) of BI 907828 monotherapy, and to evaluate its safety and tolerability, by monitoring the occurrence and severity of adverse events (AEs), in two different schedules (Arm A with one single dose every 21 days, Arm B with one single dose on Days 1 and 8, every 28 days).

The secondary objectives are the determination of the pharmacokinetic (PK) profile of BI 907828 monotherapy, and the preliminary assessment of anti-tumor activity in patients with advanced or metastatic solid tumors.

Phase Ib - In the expansion cohorts of the trial, the main objectives are to assess efficacy, and to further assess the safety, and PK profiles at the RDE, and determine the recommended Phase 2 dose (RP2D).

      • Cohort 2: TP53 wt and MDM2-non-amplified non-squamous NSCLC.
      • Cohort 3: TP53 wt and MDM2-amplified soft tissue sarcoma, glioblastoma, and urothelial carcinoma.
      • Cohort 4: TP53 wt and MDM2-amplified solid tumors with brain metastases. Patients may have received any systemic and/or local treatment for their brain lesions but there needs to be unequivocal evidence of progression of at least one brain lesion. Patients on corticosteroids must have a stable dose for at least 5 days prior to baseline magnetic resonance imaging (MRI).
    • Phase Ia (dose escalation) only:
      • Patient with either measurable or non-measurable disease.
      • Non-evaluable disease allowed.

        -- Phase Ib (expansion phase) only:

      • At least one target lesion that can be accurately measured per RECIST v.1.1.
      • For glioblastoma: measurable disease by RANO criteria (bidimensional contrast-enhancing lesions with clearly defined margins by MRI, with 2 perpendicular diameters of at least 10 mm, visible on two or more 2 axial slices). Patients on corticosteroids must have a stable dose for at least 5 days prior to baseline MRI.
    • Patient must be willing to submit the blood sampling for the PK, PD, biomarker, and PGx analyses.
    • Availability and willingness to provide a fresh tumor tissue sample obtained after relapse or progression during or after prior therapy. In case a fresh biopsy cannot be obtained (e.g. inaccessible lesions or patient safety concern), an archived specimen, collected before screening, may be submitted.
    • Male or female ≥18 years old (for Japan, ≥20 years old) at the time of signature of the ICF
    • ECOG performance status of 0 or 1 (an ECOG of 2 is acceptable, if it is due to noncancer- related disability, and after agreement with Sponsor).
    • Life expectancy of at least 12 weeks after the start of the treatment according to the Investigator's judgement.
    • Adequate organ function
    • Male or female patients. Women of childbearing potential (WOCBP, defined as female patients who are premenopausal or who had no cessation of menses within 12 months without an alternative medical cause, but not including female patients who are permanently sterilized) and men able to father a child must be ready and able to use two highly effective methods of birth control per ICH M3 (R2) that result in a low failure rate of less than 1% per year when used consistently and correctly beginning at screening, during trial participation and until 35 days and 3 months, respectively for women and men, after trial completion (i.e. after the last administration of trial medication). A list of contraception methods meeting these criteria is provided in the patient information.

    Exclusion Criteria:

    • Patient has a tumor with a documented mutation in the TP53 gene determined previously or at screening irrespective of MDM2 amplification status. For dose escalation part only, patients who have tumors with unknown TP53 and/or MDM2 status at the time of screening are eligible at investigator's discretion.
    • Active or untreated brain metastases from non-brain tumors, except for expansion cohort 4 (solid tumors with brain metastases); Note: Patients with previously treated brain metastases may participate provided they are stable, without evidence of progression by imaging (using the identical imaging modality for each assessment, either MRI or computed tomography (CT) scan), for at least four weeks prior to the first dose of trial treatment, and any neurologic symptoms have returned to baseline; have no evidence of new or enlarging brain metastases. Patients on corticosteroids must have a stable dose for at least 5 days prior to baseline MRI.
    • Current use of warfarin, factor Xa inhibitors and direct thrombin inhibitors. Note: Low molecular weight heparin and prophylactic low dose warfarin are permitted; PT/PTT must meet the inclusion criteria; patients taking low dose warfarin must have their INR followed according to institutional guidelines.
    • Patients with history of bleeding diathesis.
    • Major surgery (major according to the Investigator's assessment) performed within 12 weeks prior to start of study treatment, or planned within 12 months after screening (e.g. hip replacement).

    • Known human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) infection, acute or chronic viral hepatitis. Patients with a history of hepatitis B virus infection, irrespective of their reactivation risk status, should also be excluded. The testing at screening is not mandatory and left at the discretion of investigator.
    • Known hypersensitivity to the trial drug or its excipients.
    • Serious concomitant disease or medical condition affecting compliance with trial requirements or which are considered relevant for the evaluation of the efficacy or safety of the trial drug, such as neurologic, psychiatric, infectious disease or active ulcers (gastro-intestinal tract, skin) or laboratory abnormality that may increase the risk associated with trial participation or trial drug administration, and in the judgment of the Investigator, would make the patient inappropriate for entry into the trial.
    • Chronic alcohol or drug abuse or any condition that, in the Investigator's opinion, makes them an unreliable trial patient or unlikely to complete the trial.
    • Women who are pregnant, nursing, or who plan to become pregnant while in the trial; female patients who do not agree to the interruption of breast feeding from the start of study treatment to within 30 days after the last study treatment.
