Brief Summary:
The purpose of this study is to find out whether it is better to receive a new drug, BBI608, in addition to paclitaxel chemotherapy or better to receive paclitaxel chemotherapy alone as second line treatment for gastric and gastroesophageal junction cancer after prior first line platinum and fluoropyrimidine based chemotherapy.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Gastric Cancer Gastroesophageal Junction Cancer Drug: BBI608 Drug: Paclitaxel Other: Placebo Phase 3

Detailed Description:

The goal of this study is to determine if paclitaxel given together with BBI608 as second line therapy will prolong overall survival compared to paclitaxel alone.

Approximately 700 patients will be randomized with histologically or cytologically confirmed metastatic gastric or gastroesophageal junction adenocarcinoma.

Patients must have failed first line therapy with any platinum/fluoropyrimidine doublet.

BBI608/placebo will be administered daily, paclitaxel will be administered i.v. on days 1, 8 and 15 of a 4 weekly cycle.

BBI608 480 mg orally two times daily (960 mg total daily dose)
Other Names:
  • Napabucasin
  • BB608
  • BBI-608

Drug: Paclitaxel
Paclitaxel 80 mg/m2 I.V. infusion on Days 1, 8, and 15 of every 4-week cycle

Orally two times daily

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Overall Survival [ Time Frame: 36 months ]
    The primary objective of this study is to assess the effect of orally administered BBI608 plus weekly paclitaxel, in comparison to placebo plus weekly paclitaxel on the Overall Survival of patients with advanced histopathologically confirmed gastric or gastroesophageal junction adenocarcinoma who failed treatment with one platinum/fluoropyrimidine containing regimen for unresectable or metastatic disease.

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Progression Free Survival [ Time Frame: 36 months ]
    Defined as the time from randomization to the first objective documentation of disease progression or death due to any cause.

  2. Objective Response Rate [ Time Frame: 36 months ]
    Defined as the proportion of patients with a documented complete response or partial response (CR + PR) based on RECIST 1.1.

  3. Disease Control Rate [ Time Frame: 36 months ]
    Defined as the proportion of patients with a documented complete response, partial response, and stable disease (CR + PR + SD) based on RECIST 1.1.

  4. Number of Patients with Adverse Events [ Time Frame: 36 months ]
    All patients who have received at least one dose of BBI608/Placebo will be included in the safety analysis. The incidence of adverse events will be summarized by type of adverse event and severity.

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

Inclusion Criteria:

  • Cytologically or histologically confirmed advanced gastric or GEJ adenocarcinoma that is metastatic or locally advanced and unresectable.
  • Failed treatment with one regimen containing at least a platinum/fluoropyrimidine doublet for unresectable or metastatic disease.Treatment failure is defined as progression of disease (clinical or radiologic) during first line treatment for unresectable or metastatic disease or ≤ 6 months after last dose of first line treatment.
  • Paclitaxel therapy is appropriate for the patient and is recommended by the Investigator.
  • Imaging investigations including CT/MRI of chest/abdomen/pelvis or other scans as necessary to document all sites of disease done within 21 days prior to randomization. Patients with either measurable disease OR non-measurable evaluable disease will be eligible.
  • Eastern Cooperative Oncology Group (ECOG) Performance Status of 0 or 1.

    ・≥ 18 years of age.

  • For male or female patient of child producing potential: Must agree to use contraception or take measures to avoid pregnancy during the study and for 6 months after the final dose of Paclitaxel or for 30 days for female patients and for 90 days for male patients, of the final BBI608/Placebo dose if Paclitaxel was not administered.
  • Women of child bearing potential (WOCBP) must have a negative serum or urine pregnancy test within 5 days prior to randomization.
  • Alanine transaminase (ALT) ≤ 3 × institutional upper limit of normal (ULN) [≤ 5 × ULN in presence of liver metastases] within 14 days prior to randomization.
  • Hemoglobin (Hgb) ≥ 9.0 g/dL within 14 days prior to randomization. Must not have required transfusion within 1 week of baseline Hgb assessment.
  • Total bilirubin ≤ 1.5 × institutional ULN [≤ 2.0 x ULN in presence of liver metastases] within 14 days prior to randomization.
  • Creatinine ≤ 1.5 × institutional ULN or Creatinine Clearance > 50 ml/min (as calculated by the Cockroft-Gault equation) within 14 days prior to randomization.
  • Absolute neutrophil count ≥ 1.5 x 10^9/L within 14 days prior to randomization.
  • Platelet count ≥ 100 x 10^9/L within 14 days prior to randomization. Must not have required transfusion within 1 week of baseline platelet assessment.
  • Other baseline laboratory evaluations must be done within 14 days prior to randomization.
  • Patient must consent to provision of a representative formalin fixed paraffin block of tumor tissue, if available, in order that the specific correlative marker assays may be conducted.

Patients participating in surveys or observational studies are eligible to participate in this study.

Exclusion Criteria:

  • Anti-cancer chemotherapy or biologic therapy if administered prior to the first planned dose of BBI608/placebo within period of time equivalent to the usual cycle length of the regimen. An exception is made for oral fluoropyrimidines (e.g. capecitabine, S-1), where a minimum of 10 days since last dose must be observed prior to the first planned dose of BBI608/placebo.Radiotherapy, immunotherapy, or investigational agents within four weeks of first planned dose of BBI608/placebo, with the exception of a single dose of radiation up to 8 Gray (equal to 800 RAD) with palliative intent for pain control up to 14 days before randomization.

  • Major surgery within 4 weeks prior to randomization.
  • Any known symptomatic brain metastases requiring steroids.
  • Women who are pregnant or breastfeeding.

  • Unable or unwilling to swallow BBI608/placebo capsules daily.
  • Uncontrolled intercurrent illness.
  • Peripheral neuropathy ≥ CTCAE Grade 2 at baseline.
  • History of other malignancies except: adequately treated non-melanoma skin cancer, curatively treated in-situ cancer of the cervix, or other solid tumors curatively treated with no evidence of disease for ≥ 3 years.
  • Prior treatment with BBI608.
