Brief Summary:
Lapatinib may stop the growth of tumor cells by blocking the enzymes necessary for their growth. Phase II trial to study the effectiveness of lapatinib in treating patients who have recurrent or metastatic prostate cancer.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Recurrent Prostate Cancer Stage IV Prostate Cancer Drug: lapatinib ditosylate Other: laboratory biomarker analysis Phase 2

Detailed Description:

PRIMARY OBJECTIVES:

I. To determine the antitumor activity of GW572016 in hormone naïve, recurrent and/or metastatic hormone sensitive prostate cancer using PSA response rate.

SECONDARY OBJECTIVES:

I. To estimate objective tumor response in patients with measurable disease. II. To determine the duration of PSA response, rate and duration of stable disease, progression-free, median and overall survival rates of GW572016 in recurrent and/or metastatic prostate cancer.

III. To document the safety and tolerability of GW572016 in these patient populations.

TERTIARY OBJECTIVES:

I. To investigate if differences in baseline levels of EGFR and/or erbB2 expression, and receptor phosphorylation status in tumor specimens predict outcome to therapy.

II. To investigate if the inhibitory effects of GW572016 on EGFR and/or erbB2 pathway activation in tumor specimens correlates with clinical outcome.

OUTLINE: This is a nonrandomized, open-label, multicenter study.

Patients receive oral lapatinib once daily on days 1-28. Courses repeat every 28 days in the absence of unacceptable toxicity or disease progression.

Patients are followed for survival.

PROJECTED ACCRUAL: A total of 21-41 patients will be accrued for this study within 11.7 months.

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. PSA response rate defined as at least a 50% fall in PSA from baseline confirmed by a second PSA 4 weeks later [ Time Frame: Up to 3 years ]

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Objective tumor response [ Time Frame: Up to 3 years ]
    Potential association between variables will be measured using Pearson correlation coefficients, chi-square tests, one- or two-sample t-tests or logistic regression analyses as appropriate. Non-parametric tests such as Spearman correlation coefficients, Fisher's exact tests and Wilcoxon tests may be substituted if necessary. Ninety-five percent confidence intervals will be constructed and selected results will be illustrated using figures and plots.

  2. Duration of PSA response [ Time Frame: Up to 3 years ]
    Potential association between variables will be measured using Pearson correlation coefficients, chi-square tests, one- or two-sample t-tests or logistic regression analyses as appropriate. Non-parametric tests such as Spearman correlation coefficients, Fisher's exact tests and Wilcoxon tests may be substituted if necessary. Ninety-five percent confidence intervals will be constructed and selected results will be illustrated using figures and plots.

  3. Rate and duration of stable disease [ Time Frame: From the start of the treatment until the criteria for progression are met, assessed up to 3 years ]
    Potential association between variables will be measured using Pearson correlation coefficients, chi-square tests, one- or two-sample t-tests or logistic regression analyses as appropriate. Non-parametric tests such as Spearman correlation coefficients, Fisher's exact tests and Wilcoxon tests may be substituted if necessary. Ninety-five percent confidence intervals will be constructed and selected results will be illustrated using figures and plots.

  4. Progression-free survival [ Time Frame: From start of treatment to time criteria are met for disease progression, assessed up to 3 years ]
    Will be computed using the Kaplan-Meier method.

  5. Overall survival [ Time Frame: Up to 3 years ]
    Will be computed using the Kaplan-Meier method.

  6. Safety and tolerability assessed using National Cancer Institute (NCI) Common Terminology Criteria for Adverse Events (CTCAE) version 4.0 [ Time Frame: Up to 3 years ]
    Frequency and severity of adverse events will be tabulated using counts and proportions detailing frequently occurring, serious and severe events of interest.

Ages Eligible for Study:   18 Years and older   (Adult, Older Adult)
Sexes Eligible for Study:   Male
Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   No
Criteria

Inclusion Criteria:

  • Patients must have histologically or cytologically confirmed prostate cancer that is recurrent after local therapy, and/or metastatic carcinoma confirmed to be of prostate origin
  • Patients must have recurrent and/or metastatic disease that is progressive and not amenable to surgery or curative radiotherapy; progressive disease is defined as:

    • Three consecutive rising PSAs, at least 4 weeks apart with an absolute increase of at least 0.5
    • PSA doubling time of less than one year
    • PSA > 2.0
  • For recurrent disease following local therapy (surgery/radiation), prior neoadjuvant or adjuvant hormones are allowed if completed more than a year prior to study entry; for metastatic disease, no prior medical therapy (hormonal, corticosteroid, chemotherapy) is allowed
  • Life expectancy of greater than 12 weeks
  • ECOG performance status 0,1, or 2
  • Leukocytes >= 3,000/uL
  • Absolute neutrophil count >= 1,500/uL
  • Platelets >= 100,000/uL
  • Total bilirubin within normal institutional limits
  • AST(SGOT)/ALT(SGPT) =< 2.5 X institutional upper limit of normal
  • Creatinine within normal institutional limits or creatinine clearance >= 60 mL/min/1.73 m^2 for patients with creatinine levels above institutional normal
  • Cardiac ejection fraction within the institutional range of normal as measured by echocardiogram or MUGA scan; note that baseline and on treatment scans should be performed using the same modality and preferably at the same institution

  • Uncontrolled intercurrent illness including, but not limited to, ongoing or active infection, symptomatic congestive heart failure, unstable angina pectoris, cardiac arrhythmia, or psychiatric illness/social situations that would limit compliance with study requirements
  • Patients with cardiac ejection fraction, not within the institutional range of normal as measured by echocardiogram or MUGA scan at baseline
