  Purpose
The purpose of this study is to evaluate if the study drug palbociclib has anti-tumor activity against the breast cancer that has spread to the brain and also to determine the overall radiographic response rate in the CNS. Palbociclib is an anti-cancer medication that has been shown to stop cancer cells from growing. It has been approved in hormone positive breast cancer, along with other hormone therapies and has been found to be effective. The preclinical studies suggest that the drug may also have activity in other types of breast cancer, such as triple negative and HER2 positive breast cancer. The purpose of this study is to see if the study drug is effective in patients with brain metastasis, who have triple negative and HER2-positive breast cancer.

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Radiographic response rate in the CNS in patients with TNBC and HER2- positive breast cancer who have brain metastasis treated with palbociclib [ Time Frame: Up to 3 years ]
    Assess the radiographic response rate in the CNS by modified Response Assessment in Neuro-Oncology Criteria Brain Metastasis (modified RANO-BM). Maximum response prior to disease progression will be used.


Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Incidence of Adverse Events [ Time Frame: Up to 3 years ]
    Determine the safety and tolerability of palbociclib in patients with TNBC and HER2-positive breast cancer by evaluating number, frequency, and severity of adverse events using Common Terminology Criteria for Adverse Events version 4.03

  • Overall Survival (OS) [ Time Frame: Up to 3 years ]
    Evaluate OS in patients with TNBC and HER2-positive breast cancer who have brain metastasis treated with palbociclib. OS is defined as the time from treatment initiation until death due to any cause.

  • Progression Free Survival (PFS) [ Time Frame: Up to 3 years ]
    Determine the PFS in patients with TNBC and HER2-positive breast cancer who have brain metastasis treated with palbociclib where PFS is defined as the time from treatment initiation to documented disease progression

  • Overall Response Rate (ORR) [ Time Frame: Up to 3 years ]
    Evaluate systemic ORR defined as partial response or complete response assessed by Response Evaluation Criteria in Solid Tumors (RECIST) version 1.1

  • Time to CNS progression [ Time Frame: Up to 3 years ]
    Time to CNS progression will be defined as the time from treatment initiation to documented disease progression (modified RANO-BM criteria) in the CNS.


Other Outcome Measures:
  • Change in cognitive function in patients receiving palbociclib [ Time Frame: At baseline, 2 months and 4 months ]
    Change in cognitive function will be assessed at baseline, 2 months and 4 months and will be collected using patient reported outcome questionnaires: Functional assessment of Cancer Therapy-Cognitive function Version 3.0 (Fact -Cog)

  • Change in genomic landscape of available CNS and non-CNS tumors [ Time Frame: At baseline ]
    To evaluate genomic landscape of available CNS and non-CNS tumors, and describe any discordance. Genotyping of CNS and non-CNS tumors will be performed from archival tissue that will be obtained at baseline. Genotyping will be performed through commercial next generation sequencing assays.

  • Change in quality of life in patients receiving palbociclib [ Time Frame: At baseline, 2 months and 4 months ]
    Quality of life measures will be assessed at baseline, 2 months and 4 and will be collected using patient reported outcome questionnaires: Functional Assessment of Cancer Therapy-Brain (FACT-Br) Version 4.0

  • Cyclin D1 aberrations assessed by circulating tumor DNA [ Time Frame: At baseline, 2 months and 4 months ]
    Analyze circulating tumor DNA to assess cyclin D1 aberrations and if this is predictive of response to treatment. Circulating tumor DNA will be collected from whole blood at baseline, 2 and 4 months through commercial next generation sequencing assays.

Detailed Description:

PRIMARY OBJECTIVES:

I. To determine the radiographic response rate in the central nervous system (CNS) in patients with TNBC and HER2-positive breast cancer who have brain metastasis treated with palbociclib.

SECONDARY OBJECTIVES:

I. To determine the progression-free survival (PFS) and overall survival (OS) in patients with TNBC and HER2-positive breast cancer who have brain metastasis treated with palbociclib.

II. To determine time to CNS progression in patients with TNBC and HER2-positive breast cancer who have brain metastasis treated with palbociclib.

III. To determine systemic overall response rate (ORR) in patients with TNBC and HER2-positive breast cancer who have brain metastasis treated with palbociclib.

IV. To determine the safety and tolerability of palbociclib in patients with TNBC and HER2-positive breast cancer.

TERTIARY OBJECTIVES:

I. To evaluate circulating tumor deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA) at baseline, 2 month and 4 months; particularly to assess cyclin D1 aberrations, and if this is predictive of responses.

II. To evaluate genomic landscape of available CNS and non-CNS tumors, and describe any discordance.

III. To evaluate cognitive function and quality of life at baseline, 2 and 4 months in patients receiving palbociclib.

OUTLINE:

Patients receive palbociclib orally (PO) daily on days 1-21. Courses repeat every 28 days in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity. Patients with HER2 positive breast cancer may also receive trastuzumab intravenously (IV) as standard of care concurrently with palbociclib.

After completion of study treatment, patients are followed up at 3, 6, 9, and 12 months, and then every 6 months for up to 3 years.
