Trial of AVB-620 in Women With Primary, Non-Recurrent Breast Cancer Undergoing Surgery

The safety and scientific validity of this study is the responsibility of the study sponsor and investigators. Listing a study does not mean it has been evaluated by the U.S. Federal Government. Read our disclaimer for details. Identifier: NCT02391194
Recruitment Status : Completed
First Posted : March 18, 2015
Last Update Posted : March 22, 2017

Avelas Biosciences, Inc.

Brief Summary:
This is a Phase 1, open-label, dose escalation study in women with primary, non-recurrent breast cancer undergoing surgery. AVB-620 will be administered prior to surgery.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Breast Cancer Drug: AVB-620 Phase 1

Detailed Description:
This study will examine the safety and tolerability of AVB-620 administered as an IV infusion to women with primary, non-recurrent breast cancer undergoing surgery. The study will also characterize the pharmacokinetics of AVB-620 in this subject population and determine the dose of AVB-620 needed to generate a fluorescence signal in tumor and lymph node tissue to enable fluorescence recordings and image analysis with an imaging system. The study will also evaluate the effect of timing of AVB-620 administration, relative to surgery, on fluorescence characteristics.

Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: AVB-620
Eligible subjects will receive a single dose of AVB-620 as an intravenous infusion before the surgical procedure.
Drug: AVB-620

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Safety of AVB-620 as assessed by the incidence of adverse events and abnormal laboratory values [ Time Frame: 30 days ]
    The incidence, nature and severity of adverse events and abnormal laboratory values will be collected and analyzed in the evaluation of the safety of AVB-620.

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Characterize the pharmacokinetic profile of AVB-620 [ Time Frame: 8 days ]
    The pharmacokinetics (PK) of AVB-620 will be characterized by collecting and reviewing individual subject plasma concentrations and primary parameters, including clearance, Cmax, Cmin, and distribution.

Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   No

Inclusion Criteria:

  • Ductal carcinoma in situ (DCIS) or Stage I-III, primary invasive carcinoma of the breast
  • Primary surgical treatment is planned to be a mastectomy or lumpectomy. Sentinel lymph node (LN) biopsy or axillary LN dissection (ALND) is planned as part of the subject's therapy.
  • Eastern Cooperative Oncology Group (ECOG) performance status of 0-2

  • Lab values (hematology and chemistry) within institution's normal laboratory limits
  • Willing to remain on-site for approximately 24 hours after administration of AVB-620 or, if required, stay overnight after the surgical procedure
  • If the subject received neoadjuvant therapy, residual tumor is present (to be determined by the primary surgeon)
  • If the subject received prior anthracycline therapy, the left ventricular ejection fraction (LVEF) must be within institution's normal limits
  • Subject has the ability to understand and the willingness to sign a written informed consent document

Exclusion Criteria:

  • Recurrent ipsilateral breast cancer
  • Prior neoadjuvant chemotherapy or biologic therapy for current clinically or biopsy-proven node positive breast cancer within 4 weeks before the planned surgery.
  • Open surgery in the ipsilateral breast within 1 year of AVB-620 administration
  • History of radiation therapy to ipsilateral breast
  • Abnormal cardiac rhythm not controlled with medication, history of stroke, coronary events, and/or heart failure within 1 year of AVB-620 administration
  • Diagnosis of autoimmune disorders
  • History of drug-related anaphylactic reactions or allergic reactions; subjects with an active diagnosis of uncontrolled airway hyperactivity, uncontrolled asthma, or asthma requiring oral corticosteroids will be excluded
  • History of renal disease or current evidence of renal disease
  • Current diagnosis of any other active or clinically significant non-breast cancer
  • Systemic investigational drug of any kind within 6 weeks of AVB-620 administration
  • Pregnant or breast feeding
