  Purpose

This is a Phase 2, multicenter, multiple-arm, open-label study to evaluate the efficacy, safety, and tolerability of EZN-2208. EZN-2208 will be administered as a single agent in patients with K-RAS mutations in the tumors. Patients with wild type K-RAS in tumors will be randomized to EZN-2208 + cetuximab or to standard of care (Camptosar® + cetuximab), patients must have failed regimens containing irinotecan (Camptosar®, CPT-11), oxaliplatin (Eloxatin®), and fluoropyrimidine.

After discontinuation of study treatment, patients will receive care as considered appropriate by the investigator. Patients will continue to be followed for disease progression, subsequent anticancer therapy, and survival.

Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: EZN-2208

EZN-2208 will be administered as an i.v. infusion on weekly basis for 3 weeks and repeated every 28 days.

PLEASE NOTE THAT ENROLLMENT IN EXPERIMENTAL ARM (ARM A) IS COMPLETE. NO NEW PATIENT IN THIS ARM IS ALLOWED TO ENROLL.

Drug: EZN-2208, Cetuximab and Irinotecan

Patients with mutated K RAS tumors will be treated with single-agent EZN-2208 (Arm A). PLEASE NOTE THAT ENROLLMENT IN EXPERIMENTAL ARM (ARM A) IS COMPLETE. NO NEW PATIENT IN THIS ARM IS ALLOWED TO ENROLL.

Patients with wild-type K-RAS tumors will be randomly assigned in a 2:1 ratio to EZN-2208 + cetuximab (Arm B) or the benchmark of irinotecan + cetuximab (Arm C).

Other Names:
  • Irinotecan, (CPT 11),(Camptosar®)
  • Erbitux (cetuximab)
Experimental: Cetuximab + EZN-2208
Cetuximab will be administered as an i.v. infusion on weekly basis. EZN-2208 administered as i.v. infusion on weekly basis for 3 weeks and repeated every 28 days.
Drug: EZN-2208, Cetuximab and Irinotecan

Patients with mutated K RAS tumors will be treated with single-agent EZN-2208 (Arm A). PLEASE NOTE THAT ENROLLMENT IN EXPERIMENTAL ARM (ARM A) IS COMPLETE. NO NEW PATIENT IN THIS ARM IS ALLOWED TO ENROLL.

Patients with wild-type K-RAS tumors will be randomly assigned in a 2:1 ratio to EZN-2208 + cetuximab (Arm B) or the benchmark of irinotecan + cetuximab (Arm C).

Other Names:
  • Irinotecan, (CPT 11),(Camptosar®)
  • Erbitux (cetuximab)
Active Comparator: Irinotecan + cetuximab
Cetuximab will be administered weekly as an i.v. infusion. Irinotecan will be administered as an i.v. infusion on Weeks 1 and 2 and repeated every 3 weeks.
Drug: EZN-2208, Cetuximab and Irinotecan

Patients with mutated K RAS tumors will be treated with single-agent EZN-2208 (Arm A). PLEASE NOTE THAT ENROLLMENT IN EXPERIMENTAL ARM (ARM A) IS COMPLETE. NO NEW PATIENT IN THIS ARM IS ALLOWED TO ENROLL.

Patients with wild-type K-RAS tumors will be randomly assigned in a 2:1 ratio to EZN-2208 + cetuximab (Arm B) or the benchmark of irinotecan + cetuximab (Arm C).

Other Names:
  • Irinotecan, (CPT 11),(Camptosar®)
  • Erbitux (cetuximab)

Detailed Description:

EZN-2208 will be administered by i.v. infusion weekly for 3 weeks in 4-week cycles. The cetuximab infusion will be administered before the EZN-2208 (Arm B) or irinotecan (Arm C) infusion. Study treatment will be continued until evidence of disease progression, unacceptable toxicity, or withdrawal of the patient's consent for participation in the study.

Approximately 220 patients will be enrolled in this study: approximately 100 patients in the K-RAS mutated arm and approximately 120 patients in the wild-type K-RAS arm.

  Eligibility

Ages Eligible for Study:   18 Years and older
Genders Eligible for Study:   Both

    3. Disease progression
    4. Previous therapy with irinotecan, oxaliplatin, and fluoropyrimidine either alone or in any combination(s). Patients must have radiographically documented progressive disease while receiving, or within 3 months of receiving, these agents alone or in combination.

Exclusion Criteria:

  • Patients meeting any of the following exclusion criteria will not be eligible for enrollment.

    1. Known chronic infectious disease
    2. Major surgery within 3 weeks before study start
    3. Known or suspected brain metastases requiring intervention with steroids and/or radiation therapy.
    4. Prior chemotherapy, immunotherapy, non-investigational agent, or other therapy used to treat the cancer within 3 weeks before the scheduled administration of EZN-2208
    5. History of other primary cancer within 5 years of enrollment, unless

      1. Curatively resected non-melanomatous skin cancer, or
      2. Curatively resected cervical cancer
    6. Lack of recovery to Grade 1 from any reversible side effects related to the administration of an investigational agent, or other prior treatments for the cancer
    7. Any condition such as uncontrollable diabetes, uncontrollable hypertension, or active infection.
