Brief Summary:
The purpose of this trial is to determine whether BIBF 1120 can be safely combined with pegylated liposomal doxorubicin (phase I), and to determine the clinical activity of the combination in patients with platinum-resistant ovarian cancer (phase II).

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Ovarian Cancer Drug: Doxil (Pegylated Liposomal Doxorubicin) Drug: BIBF 1120 Phase 1

Detailed Description:

OUTLINE: This is a phase I/II multi-center study.

Phase I:

All patients will receive a fixed dose of pegylated liposomal doxorubicin (Doxil) of 40 mg/m2 administered IV every 28 days. The dose of BIBF 1120 will be escalated in successive cohorts of patients. A maximum of 12 cycles of combined therapy will be administered corresponding to maximum cumulative dose of PLD of 480 mg/m2. Continuation therapy with single agent BIBF 1120 may continue for selected patients.

The escalation phase will follow the standard 3+3 design. Patients will be accrued to each dose level in cohorts of up to 3-6 evaluable patients. Escalation will continue until a DLT is observed, the highest dose level is reached, or medical judgment indicates. An expansion cohort of 3 to 6 patients will be treated at the MTD (or highest dose level if the MTD is not reached), in order to ensure tolerability of the regimen prior to initiating the Phase II component of the study.

Phase II:

Patients will receive a fixed dose of pegylated liposomal doxorubicin (Doxil) of 40 mg/m2 administered IV every 28 days. Patients will be treated at either dose Level +2 or the MTD dose level of BIBF 1120 as defined by the Phase I cohort. Each cycle will be 28 days. Patients will continue treatment with the combination therapy for a total of up to 12 cycles.

Actual Study Completion Date : December 2015

Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: Doxil + BIBF 1120 Drug: Doxil (Pegylated Liposomal Doxorubicin)
Phases I and II: 40 mg/m2 IV over 60 min (+/- 15 min) on day 1 of 28-day cycle

Drug: BIBF 1120

Phase I: Escalating cohorts days -2 through +2, orally 100mg bid, 150mg bid, 200mg bid

Phase II: MTD orally, bid, day 2 of 28-day cycle

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Phase I: Safety and Toxicity of Treatment Regimen [ Time Frame: 3 months ]
    To find the maximum tolerated dose (MTD) to be used during the Phase II trial and evaluate the safety and toxicity of the combination BIBF 1120 plus PLD in patients with recurrent or resistant epithelial ovarian or endometrial cancer.

  2. Phase II: Objective Response Rate [ Time Frame: 12 months ]
    To assess response rate (objective response) in patients with recurrent or resistant epithelial ovarian cancer treated with BIBF 1120 plus PLD.

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Phase I and II: Progression-Free Survival [ Time Frame: 12 months ]
    To determine the progression-free survival of Phase I and II patients with recurrent or resistant epithelial ovarian cancer treated with BIBF 1120 plus PLD.

  2. Phase I and II: Clinical Benefit [ Time Frame: 12 months ]

    To determine the rate of clinical benefit for Phase I and II defined as:

    • the number of patients experiencing an objective response or
    • a CA125 response, in the absence of disease progression by clinical or radiographic criteria
    • sustained stable disease ≥ 3 months by clinical and radiographic criteria

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

Inclusion Criteria:

  • Platinum-resistant (recurrence within 6 months of a platinum-containing regimen) or platinum refractory (progression while on platinum) disease.
  • Measurable disease as defined by RECIST v1.1 criteria on screening testing
  • Be ≥18 years of age at the time of providing written informed consent for participation.
  • Give written, informed consent for participation in the protocol.
  • Must consent to correlative blood sample collections.
  • Be at least 4 weeks from last treatment to allow recovery from prior toxicity to a Grade 1 or less.
  • The following exceptions are allowed: hormonal therapy - 1 week wash-out; radiation therapy - 3 week wash-out; weekly chemotherapy - 3 week wash-out
