Study Description
Brief Summary:
This phase I trial studies the side effects and best dose of veliparib when given together with radiation therapy in treating patients with advanced solid malignancies (abnormal cells divide without control and can invade nearby tissues) with peritoneal carcinomatosis, epithelial ovarian, fallopian, or primary peritoneal cancer. Veliparib may stop the growth of tumor cells by blocking some of the enzymes needed for cell growth. Radiation therapy uses high energy x rays to kill tumor cells. Giving veliparib with radiation therapy may kill more tumor cells.

Detailed Description:

PRIMARY OBJECTIVES:

I. Determine the maximum tolerable dose of veliparib in combination with low-dose fractionated whole abdominal radiation therapy (LDFWAR) in patients with peritoneal carcinomatosis from advanced solid malignancies. At dose levels 5 and 6: to determine the maximum tolerable dose of veliparib in combination with LDFWAR in patients with epithelial ovarian, fallopian or primary peritoneal cancers with intraabdominal disease.

II. Determine the safety and toxicity of the combination of veliparib in conjunction with LDFWAR in patients with peritoneal carcinomatosis from advanced solid malignancies; at dose levels 5 and 6: to determine the safety and toxicity of veliparib in combination with LDFWAR in patients with epithelial ovarian, fallopian or primary peritoneal cancers with intraabdominal disease.

SECONDARY OBJECTIVES:

I. Assess clinical activity of veliparib plus LDFWAR in patients with peritoneal carcinomatosis from advanced solid malignancies as assessed by response rate by Response Evaluation Criteria in Solid Tumors (RECIST) 1.1 criteria. At dose levels 5 and 6: to assess the clinical activity of veliparib plus LDFWAR in patients with epithelial ovarian, fallopian or primary peritoneal cancer and intraabdominal disease as assessed by response rate by RECIST 1.1 criteria.

II. Evaluate if microsatellite instability or baseline levels of various deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA) repair proteins (excision repair cross-complementing 1 [ERCC1], x-ray repair complementing defective repair in Chinese hamster cells 1 [XRCC1], breast cancer 1, early onset [BRCA1], breast cancer 2, early onset [BRCA2], poly [adenosine diphosphate (ADP)-ribosyl]ation [PAR]) correlate with clinical activity of this regimen.

III. Evaluate changes in quality of life for patients treated with this regimen by serial measurements using the Quality of Life Questionnaire Core-30 (QLQC-30) standardized questionnaire.

OUTLINE: This is a dose-escalation study of veliparib.

Patients receive veliparib orally (PO) twice daily (BID) on days 1-21 (days 5-21 of course 1). Patients undergo LDFWAR in BID on days 1 and 5 of weeks 1-3. Treatment repeats every 28 days for 3 courses in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity.

After completion of study treatment, patients are followed up every 2 months.

Outcome Measures

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Maximum tolerable dose defined as the highest dose at which 0 or 1 dose-limiting toxicities are observed in six patients as graded by the National Cancer Institute (NCI) Common Terminology Criteria for Adverse Events (CTCAE) version 4.0 [ Time Frame: 28 days ]
    Reported with exact binomial proportions and 95% confidence intervals.


Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Changes in quality of life, assessed using the QLQC-30 standardized questionnaire [ Time Frame: From baseline to 4 years ]
    The change in score will be evaluated with a paired t-test. Subscale scores of the quality of life questionnaire will be similarly analyzed.

  2. Clinical activity assessed by response (complete, partial, and overall), measured by RECIST 1.1 criteria [ Time Frame: Up to 4 years ]
    Reported descriptively.

  3. Microsatellite instability (MSI) [ Time Frame: Baseline ]
    MSI will be correlated with response using a Fisher exact test and correlated with progression-free survival (PFS) using the log rank test and Kaplan-Meier curves. The effect of MSI on response and PFS, adjusting for other covariates, will be assessed using logistic regression and the Cox proportional hazards model.

  4. Presence of DNA repair proteins [ Time Frame: Baseline ]
    The presence of ERCC1, XRCC1, BRCA1, BRCA2, and PAR will be categorized by the level of staining: none, mild or strong. These data will be correlated with response and toxicity using the Cochran-Armitage trend test and logistic regression modeling.

  5. Proportion of toxicities of the combination of veliparib and LDRWAR as graded by the NCI CTCAE version 4.0 [ Time Frame: Up to 4 weeks after completion of study treatment ]
    Reported by type and grade with exact binomial proportions and 95% confidence intervals.
