Brief Summary:

Lymphangioleiomyomatosis (LAM) is a rare lung disease that mostly affects women of childbearing age. In LAM, abnormal, muscle-like cells begin to grow out of control in the lungs. As a result, air can't move freely in and out of the lungs. In some cases, this means the lungs can't supply the body's other organs with enough oxygen.

This study is being conducted to find out what dose of a drug called saracatinib is best tolerated by people with LAM. This drug has been tested in patients with certain types of cancer but is not currently approved by the United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA). Saracatinib may work in cancer by preventing the growth, movement and invasiveness of cancer cells. The use of saracatinib to treat LAM is considered experimental. Preliminary testing already completed suggests that the study drug, saracatinib, may suppress certain substances in the lungs of patients with LAM thus may be effective in slowing down the disease process

Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: Saracatinib

Only one arm: Intervention is Saracatinib. We plan to study three escalating doses of oral saracatinib; 50, 125 and 175 mg. Saracatinib is given orally once a day.

More regarding dose escalation is included in intervention below.

Drug: Saracatinib
Saracatinib is escalated as follows: Three dose levels will be administered for 1 month each: 50 mg, 125 mg and 175 mg. Three subjects will be treated at the lowest daily dose of 50 mg. If no subject experiences DLT (dose limiting toxicity), the dose level is escalated to 125 mg/day for the next cohort of 3 different subjects and so on to next dose.
Other Name: AZD0530

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Dose Determination [ Time Frame: Saracatinib will be given for 4 weeks, the subject will be followed for a total of 8 weeks. ]
    One of three escalating daily oral doses of saracatinib; 50, 125 and 175 mg. Saracatinib will be given orally once a day for four weeks. Adverse events will be monitored. The subject will receive only one of the doses as determined by the escalation of the study.

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Safety Profile [ Time Frame: 8 weeks ]
    This objective is to generate a safety profile utilizing the data collected along with the adverse events. Subjects will be followed closely during the 4 weeks while taking drug and again for four weeks after stopping the study drug.

Other Outcome Measures:
  1. Efficacy exploration [ Time Frame: 8 weeks ]
    explore the efficacy measurements (e.g., pulmonary function test, six minute walk test, and VEGF-D)

Layout table for eligibility information
Ages Eligible for Study:   18 Years to 65 Years   (Adult, Older Adult)
Sexes Eligible for Study:   All
Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   No

Inclusion Criteria:

  • Male or female patients. It should be noted, however, that LAM occurs predominantly in women.
  • 18 to 65 years of age.
  • All patients must have a diagnosis of LAM as defined by one of the following:

Open lung, transbronchial or thoracic needle biopsy consistent with LAM Open or needle abdominal biopsy findings consistent with LAM Computed tomography (CT) of chest or abdomen consistent with LAM in the setting of TSC, renal angiomyolipoma (AML), cystic abdominal lymphangiomas, or history of chylous effusion in the chest or abdomen CT of chest consistent with LAM plus serum vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF-D) > 800 pg/ml In cases where the diagnosis of LAM is based on biopsy, review of the pathology specimens by pathologists who are experienced with LAM, such as those at the NIH or the Mayo Clinic, will be obtained (if not done so previously).

Exclusion Criteria:

  • Current infection.
  • Major surgery within the past 2 months
  • Advanced hematologic, renal, hepatic, or metabolic diseases
  • The use of another investigational drug within 30 days
  • The use of mammalian target of rapamycin (mTOR) inhibitors within 30 days
  • Previous lung transplantation or active on transplant list.
  • Inability to attend scheduled clinic visits
  • Inability to give informed consent
  • Inability to perform pulmonary function testing
  • History of malignancy in the past two years, other than squamous or basal cell skin cancer or mild cervical cancer.
  • Nursing mothers
  • Current or planned pregnancy.
  • Not using adequate contraception (in woman of childbearing potential).
  • Significant clinical change in health in the past 30 days
