Primary Outcome Measures:
  • To determine the maximum tolerated dose for RAD001 as adjunct therapy to standard upfront treatment of advanced stage cervical cancer in combination with weekly cisplatin and whole pelvic external beam radiation [ Time Frame: every 7 days ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
  • To determine the dose limiting toxicities for RAD001 as adjunct therapy to standard upfront treatment of advanced stage cervical cancer in combination with weekly cisplatin and whole pelvic external beam radiation [ Time Frame: every 7 days ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • To determine the pharmacokinetics of RAD001 given as adjunct therapy to standard upfront treatment of advanced stage cervical cancer [ Time Frame: day 1 and day 15 during study treatment ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • To evaluate the pharmacogenetics of RAD001 in the specified patient population [ Time Frame: day 1 prior to starting study treatment ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • To evaluate microvessel density pre-and post-treatment with the specified treatment regimen in the specified patient population [ Time Frame: day 1 and end of treatment ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • To evaluate potential correlations between biomarkers HIF-1a, TSP-1, P53, VEGF, and VEGFR and use of the specified treatment regimen in the specified patient population [ Time Frame: day 1 and end of treatment ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • To evaluate progression free survival in the specified patient population [ Time Frame: from the time of treatment start until progression or up to 5 years after completion of study treatment ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • To assess quality of life as indicated by the Patient Care Monitor in the specified patient population [ Time Frame: every 7 days during study treatment ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Enrollment: 0
Study Start Date: December 2009
Estimated Study Completion Date: December 2010
Estimated Primary Completion Date: December 2010 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: Single arm
All subjects receive RAD001 in combination with standard field whole pelvic radiation and cisplatin.
Drug: RAD001
RAD001 will be administered orally as 5 mg qod, 5 mg qd, or 10mg qd continuously from study Day 1 until the end of whole pelvic radiation therapy unless the patient develops progression of disease or unacceptable toxicity prior to that.
Other Names:
  • Afinitor
  • Everolimus
Drug: Cisplatin
Cisplatin will be administered intravenously once weekly at 40mg/m2 for 6 weeks. The preferred administration day is Monday.
Other Names:
  • CDDP
  • Platinol
Radiation: External Beam Whole Pelvis Radiation Therapy
Patients will receive 180 cGy daily fraction Monday through Friday x 25 days (4500 cGy total) using a four field technique throughout the entire treatment with all fields treated each day.

Detailed Description:

This Phase 1, single-site, dose-escalation study is being conducted to determine the MTD of RAD001 as part of a specified combination regimen. The combination regimen will be standard field whole pelvic RT in combination with cisplatin at 40mg/m2 weekly with RAD001 at dose escalation daily starting at 5 mg qod, then 5 mg qd, then 10 mg qd during the period of whole pelvic radiation therapy.
