  Purpose

Study BT-CL-PGG-CRC1031 is a Phase 3, open-label, randomized, multi-center study. Qualified subjects, who have KRAS wild type (WT) colorectal cancer will be randomized in a 2:1 ratio to treatment with either Imprime PGG and cetuximab or cetuximab alone. Subjects will be dosed until progression or discontinuation for some other reason. Efficacy will be assessed via Response Evaluation Criteria in Early Tumors 1.1 (RECIST 1.1); computed tomography (CT) scans will be conducted every 6 weeks. Safety, pharmacokinetics (PK), quality of life, and biomarker parameters will also be assessed.

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Overall Survival (OS) [ Time Frame: 18 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Progression Free Survival (PFS) [ Time Frame: 18 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Rate of complete response (CR) [ Time Frame: 18 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Rate of partial response (PR) [ Time Frame: 18 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Rate of overall response (CR + PR) [ Time Frame: 18 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Safety and tolerability of the dosing regimen as measured by the incidence and severity of adverse events observed in study participants [ Time Frame: 18 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Sparse pharmacokinetic profile of Imprime PGG will be determined to expand current Imprime PGG PK data [ Time Frame: 18 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Samples for sparse PK will be taken at specified times on Cycle 1/Day 1 in the first 30 available subjects randomized to Arm 1 (Subjects 1-30). Samples will be collected, at multiple times, in the next 60 subjects randomized to Arm 1 who reach Cycle 2/Day 1 of dosing (subjects 31-90). Additionally, any subject after the first 90 subjects (subjects 91-795) who have a screening/baseline calculated creatinine clearance (based on age, weight and serum creatinine) of <60 mL/minute will have sparse PK samples collected.

  • Change in Quality of Life [ Time Frame: 18 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Detailed Description:

Study BT-CL-PGG-CRC1031 is a Phase 3, open-label, randomized, multi-center study. Qualified subjects, who have KRAS WT colorectal cancer will be randomized in a 2:1 ratio to either:

Arm 1: Imprime PGG and cetuximab or Arm 2: Cetuximab

Approximately 795 subjects will be randomized into the study. Dosing will occur in 6-week cycles. Imprime PGG will be dosed at 4 mg/kg and will be administered weekly in each cycle (Weeks 1-6/Days 1, 8, 15, 22, 29, and 36) preceding the administration of cetuximab (Arm 1 only). The initial cetuximab dose (both arms) will be 400 mg/m2 on Cycle 1/Day 1 and subsequent doses will be 250 mg/m2 administered weekly in each cycle (Weeks 1-6/Days 1, 8, 15, 22, 29, and 36).

Subjects will be dosed until progressive disease (PD) per RECIST 1.1 or discontinuation of study drug for other reasons; e.g., safety. Following completion of the treatment period of the study, subjects will be monitored for survival until death or loss to follow-up. Tumor measurements and determination of tumor responses will be evaluated according to RECIST 1.1. Safety, PK, quality of life, and biomarker parameters will also be assessed.
