  Purpose

This is an open-label, two-part study to evaluate the safety and tolerability of combination treatment with dalotuzumab + MK-2206, dalotuzumab + MK-0752, or dalotuzumab + ridaforolimus (MK-8669). Part 1 of the study will determine the dose-limiting toxicities (DLTs) observed after administration of each of the combinations at various doses and define the maximum tolerated dose (MTD) of each combination. Part 2 of the study will assess preliminary anti-tumor activity of these combinations (at MTD) in two groups of participants with selected tumor biomarkers: one group with metastatic or recurrent platinum-resistant ovarian cancer, fallopian tube cancer, or primary peritoneal cancer and one group with metastatic or recurrent colorectal cancer. The dalotuzumab + ridaforolimus and dalotuzumab + MK-2206 arms will be enriched with female platinum-resistant ovarian cancer, fallopian tube cancer, or primary peritoneal cancer participants. The dalotuzumab + MK-0752 arm will be enriched with metastatic or recurrent wild-type kirsten rat sarcoma (KRAS) colorectal cancer participants.

The primary hypothesis is that the DLTs observed in adult patients with locally advanced or metastatic solid tumors after administration of each of the MK-MK doublets will be dose-dependent to allow for definition of a MTD within each MK-MK doublet.

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Number of Participants With Dose-limiting Toxicities (DLTs) [ Time Frame: Cycle 1-28 Days ]
    DLTs were defined as follows: 1) non-hematological toxicity ≥Grade 3 according to Common Terminology Criteria for Adverse Events (CTCAE) version 4.0 except for Grade 3 nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, and/or dehydration; Grade 3 or 4 hyperglycemia; alopecia; inadequately treated hypersensitivity reactions; dalotuzumab infusion-related reactions; Grade 3 transaminases ≤1 week in duration; or clinically non-significant, treatable or reversible lab abnormalities; 2) Grade 4-5 hematologic toxicity, with the exception of Grade 4 neutropenia <6 days in duration; 3) Grade 3 or Grade 4 neutropenia with fever >38.5 degrees C; 4) Grade 4 thrombocytopenia ≤25.0 x 10^9/Liter; 5) drug-related adverse experience leading to a dose modification during Cycle 1; 6) unresolved drug-related toxicity that causes ≥3 week delay of the next scheduled dose of study medication; 7) persistent increases in QTc interval >60 milliseconds from baseline, or clinically significant bradycardia.


Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Number of Participants Whose Best Response is a Partial Response (PR) or Complete Response (CR) [ Time Frame: Up to 7 months ]
    Best response was determined for the maximum tolerated dose from the start of treatment until disease progression, recurrence, or completion of 6 months of treatment. Lesions were measured by computed tomography (CT) scan or magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). Partial response (PR), defined as a tumor burden decrease of 30%, or complete response (CR) was determined using Response Criteria in Solid Tumors (RECIST) 1.1 for participants with at least one measurable target lesion at baseline.
