|Official Title:||A Multi-Institutional Phase II Study of the Akt Inhibitor MK-2206 in Refractory Biliary Cancers|
- Overall response rate (complete and partial response) as defined by RECIST 1.1 [ Time Frame: Up to 4 weeks after completion of study treatment ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
- Frequency of adverse events related to MK-2206 [ Time Frame: Up to 30 days after completion of study treatment ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]Severity of adverse events is graded according to the NCI CTCAE 4.0.
- Overall survival [ Time Frame: From study initiation to time of death, assessed up to 4 weeks after completion of study treatment ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]Analyzed using Kaplan-Meier plots.
- Progression-free survival [ Time Frame: From start of treatment to time of documented progression or death whichever occurs first, assessed up to 4 weeks after completion of study treatment ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]Analyzed using Kaplan-Meier plots.
|Study Start Date:||April 2011|
|Estimated Primary Completion Date:||December 2015 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)|
Experimental: Treatment (Akt inhibitor MK2206)
Patients receive Akt inhibitor MK2206 PO on days 1, 8, 15, and 22. Courses repeat every 28 days in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity.

I. To evaluate the objective response rate (complete and partial response), as defined by the Response Evaluation Criteria In Solid Tumors (RECIST) 1.1 criteria, in patients with advanced refractory biliary cancers (BC) receiving Akt inhibitor MK2206 (MK2206).
I. To determine the frequency and severity of adverse events and tolerability of the regimen in patients with advanced refractory BC receiving MK2206.
II. To determine the overall and progression-free survival of patients with advanced refractory BC receiving MK2206.
III. To determine the presence of genetic mutations of PI3-kinase/ Akt pathway signaling-pathway genes relevant to BC and how these correlate with objective response to treatment with MK2206.
IV. To determine the pharmacokinetic and pharmacogenetic profile as a way of assessing inter-individual variability as well as how these relate to clinical outcomes.
V. To determine genetic variants and mutations in genes encoding drug-metabolizing enzymes and transporters, and genes involved in tumor biology, and how these may be related to response to treatment.
OUTLINE: This is a multicenter study.
Patients receive Akt inhibitor MK2206 orally (PO) on days 1, 8, 15, and 22. Courses repeat every 28 days in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity.
Blood samples are collected at baseline and periodically during study for pharmacokinetic, pharmacogenetic, and other correlative studies. Previously collected tumor tissue is also analyzed.
After completion of study therapy, patients are followed up for 4 weeks.
