  Purpose

Laboratory studies suggest that the study drug may stop cancer cells from growing by affecting an interaction between proteins in the cells referred to as cAMP-response element-binding protein and ß-catenin.

The purpose of this research study is to determine the highest safe dose of study drug that may be used when it is given together with a chemotherapy drug to patients with cancer of the pancreas.

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • The Maximum Tolerated Dose (MTD) of PRI-724 + Gemcitabine measured by the number of dose limiting toxicities (DLTs) that occur. [ Time Frame: 18 months. DLTs will be measured as they occur throughout the patients' time on study. ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
    If no DLT occurs in the first 3 patients of a cohort, the dose will be escalated to the next dose cohort. If 1 DLT occurs in the first 3 patients of a cohort, that cohort is expanded to 6 patients. If more than 1 DLT occurs in a 6 patient cohort, escalation is stopped & next lower dose is expanded to 12 patients to confirm the MTD.

Estimated Enrollment: 24
Study Start Date: April 2013
Estimated Study Completion Date: February 2015
Estimated Primary Completion Date: October 2014 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: PRI-724 and Gemcitabine
This study will have one arm: all enrolled subjects will be treated with both PRI-724 and Gemcitabine.
Drug: PRI-724

Gemcitabine: 1000 mg/m2 IV over 30 minutes; once weekly dosing; 3 weeks on with 1 week recovery (4 weeks per cycle)

PRI-724:

Cohort 1: 320 mg/m2/day; Cohort 2: 640 mg/m2/day; Cohort 3: 905 mg/m2/day; Continuous IV over 24 hours; daily x 7 days; 1 week on with 1 week recovery × 2 (4 weeks per cycle)


Detailed Description:

PRI-724 is a small molecule antagonist that binds to the co-activator CBP thereby specifically inhibiting the subset of Wnt/β-catenin-driven genes that are up-regulated in cancer cells. PRI-724 is being developed as a potential antineoplastic agent.

Purpose:

To determine the safety, tolerability, dose-limiting toxicities (DLTs), and maximum tolerated dose (MTD) of sequential escalating doses per cohort of PRI-724 administered in combination with gemcitabine to patients with adenocarcinoma of the pancreas that is locally advanced, metastatic, or otherwise inoperable, who are candidates for second-line therapy after failing first-line therapy with FOLFIRINOX (i.e., folinic acid [leucovorin], fluorouracil, irinotecan, oxaliplatin)

  • PRI-724: 320, 640, 905 mg/m2/day, continuous intravenous (CIV) infusion over 24 h, daily × 7 days, 1 week on with 1 week recovery × 2 (4 weeks equals 1 cycle)
  • Gemcitabine: 1000 mg/m2 IV over 30 minutes; 3 weeks on with 1 week recovery (4 weeks equals 1 cycle)

Patients with documented, measurable or evaluable adenocarcinoma of the pancreas that is locally advanced, metastatic, or otherwise inoperable, who are candidates for second-line therapy after failing first-line therapy with FOLFIRINOX, will be entered into this phase 1b, multicenter, open-label, non-randomized, dose-escalation per cohort study. The trial is designed to evaluate the safety, tolerability, DLT(s), and MTD of escalating doses of PRI-724, a CBP/ β- catenin inhibitor, when administered in combination with a standard dose of gemcitabine. Correlative studies include characterization of the PK profiles of PRI-724 and gemcitabine, evaluation of the utility of potential PD markers of PRI-724 activity, as well as preliminary assessment of the antineoplastic activity of PRI-724 plus gemcitabine in this patient population.
