The main purpose of this first human study with CC-115 is to assess the safety and action of a new class of experimental drug (dual DNA-PK and TOR kinase inhibitors) in patients with advanced tumors unresponsive to standard therapies and to determine the appropriate dose and tumor types for later-stage clinical trials. The bioavailability of tablet and capsule formulations under fasting and fed conditions will also be evaluated in some patients.

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Dose-Limiting Toxicity [ Time Frame: Continuously for 28 days after starting treatment ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
  • Non-Tolerated Dose [ Time Frame: Continuously for 28 days after starting treatment ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
  • Maximum Tolerated Dose [ Time Frame: Continuously for 28 days after starting treatment ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
  • Maximum Observed Concentration in Plasma of CC-115 [ Time Frame: Days 1, 2, 15, 16 of treatment ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
  • Area Under the Concentration-Time Curve for CC-115 [ Time Frame: Days 1, 2, 15 and 16 of treatment ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
  • Time to Maximum Concentration of CC-115 [ Time Frame: Days 1, 2, 15, and 16 of treatment ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
  • Terminal Half-Life for CC-115 [ Time Frame: Days 1, 2, 15, and 16 of treatment ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
  • Apparent Total Body Clearance of CC-115 [ Time Frame: Days 1, 2, 15 and 16 of treatment ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
  • Apparent Volume of Distribution of CC-115 [ Time Frame: Days 1, 2, 15, and 16 of treatment ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
  • Accumulation Index of CC-115 [ Time Frame: Days 1, 2, 15 and 16 of treatment ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Pharmacodynamics [ Time Frame: Screening (within 28 days prior to first dose of study drug) and Days 1, 2, 8, 15, 22, 28, 155, and end of treatment ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Phosphorylation inhibition determined by changes in the levels of multiple biomarkers including S6 and, 4EBP (for mTORC1), AKT (for mTORC2) and other appropriate biomarkers in circulating granulocytes and tumor tissue (when available).

  • Anti-Tumor Efficacy [ Time Frame: Every 2-3 months until proof of tumor progression ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Tumor response rates using appropriate objective criteria for various malignancies

Enrollment: 75

Estimated Study Completion Date: July 2016
Estimated Primary Completion Date: February 2016 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: CC-115 Drug: CC-115

Part A (actively recruiting): Dose level starts with 0.5mg daily by mouth in cycles of 28 days. Level increases for different patient cohorts in 100% or 50% increments until optimal dose schedule is established for further study. Treatment continues for as long as patient benefits (i.e., until disease progression or unacceptable toxicity).

Part B: Optimal dose schedule is administered in 28-day cycles until disease progression.

Detailed Description:

Latest amendment clarifies that Chronic Lymophocytic Leukemia (CLL) includes T-cell Prolymphocytic Leukemia (T-PLL). Prior treatment with some drugs targeting mTOR, P13K and related pathways is now permitted.


Ages Eligible for Study:   18 Years and older
Genders Eligible for Study:   Both
Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   No

Inclusion Criteria:

  • Histologically-confirmed advanced solid tumor, chronic lymphocytic leukemia, small lymphocytic lymphoma, T-cell prolymphocytic leukemia, Non-Hodgkin Lymphoma or multiple myeloma
  • Progressed or not tolerated standard therapy, and no further standard therapy is available
  • Archival and screening tumor biopsy
  • Eastern Cooperative Oncology Group Performance Status: 0 or 1
  • Adequate organ function

Exclusion Criteria:

  • Prior cancer-directed modalities or investigational drugs within 4 wks or 5 half lives, whichever is shorter
  • Symptomatic brain metastases (prior treatment and stable metastases are allowed)
  • Acute or chronic renal disease or pancreatitis
  • Diarrhea ≥ Grade 2, impaired gastrointestinal absorption
  • Impaired cardiac function
  • History of diabetes requiring treatment, glucose >126 mg/dL, Glycated hemoglobin (HbA1c) ≥6.5%
  • Peripheral neuropathy ≥ Grade 2
  • Known Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV) infection, chronic hepatitis B or C (unless associated with hepatocellular cancer)
  • Pregnant, inadequate contraception, breast feeding
  • Most concurrent second malignancies
  • Part B only: Prior treatment with agents targeting both mammalian target of rapamycin (mTOR) complexes (dual mammalian target of rapamycin complex 1/2 inhibitors) and/or PI3K/AKT pathways. However, prior treatment with isolated target of rapamycin complex 1 (TORC1) inhibitors (eg., rapalogs) is allowed in both parts of this study.
