Brief Summary:
This pivotal, open-label, single-arm study will evaluate the anti-cancer activity of ARQ 087 by Objective Response Rate (ORR) by central radiology review as per RECIST v1.1 in subjects with inoperable or advanced intrahepatic cholangiocarcinoma (iCCA) whose tumors harbor FGFR2 gene fusions (by FISH performed by the central laboratory) and who received at least one prior regimen of systemic therapy. Subjects will be dosed orally once per day at 300 mg of ARQ 087 capsules.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Intrahepatic Cholangiocarcinoma Combined Hepatocellular and Cholangiocarcinoma Drug: ARQ 087 Phase 2

Study Type : Interventional  (Clinical Trial)
Estimated Enrollment : 100 participants
Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment
Masking: None (Open Label)
Primary Purpose: Treatment
Official Title: A Pivotal Trial of ARQ 087 in Subjects With FGFR2 Gene Fusion Positive Inoperable or Advanced Intrahepatic Cholangiocarcinoma
Actual Study Start Date : November 10, 2017
Estimated Primary Completion Date : September 2020
Estimated Study Completion Date : March 2021

Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: ARQ 087 Drug: ARQ 087
ARQ 087 will be orally administered at 300 mg once per day one hour prior to or two hours after a meal and is supplied as 100 mg capsules.

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Anti-cancer activity of ARQ 087 by Objective Response Rate (ORR) [ Time Frame: Up to approximately 32 weeks ]
    ORR will be assessed by central radiology review per RECIST version 1.1

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Safety of ARQ 087 as assessed by adverse events [ Time Frame: Up to approximately 36 weeks ]
    Adverse events will be graded using NCI CTCAE guidelines, version 4.03

  2. Anti-cancer activity of ARQ 087 by progression free survival (PFS) [ Time Frame: Up to approximately 32 weeks ]
    PFS will be assessed by central radiology review per RECIST version 1.1

  3. Anti-cancer activity of ARQ 087 by overall survival (OS) [ Time Frame: Up to approximately 36 weeks ]
    OS will be calculated from the first date of receiving study drug until death

  4. Anti-cancer activity of ARQ 087 by duration of response (DoR) [ Time Frame: Up to approximately 32 weeks ]
    DoR will be assessed by central radiology review per RECIST version 1.1

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

Inclusion Criteria:

  1. Signed written informed consent granted prior to initiation of any study-specific procedures
  2. 18 years of age or older
  3. Histologically or cytologically confirmed locally advanced, inoperable (where surgery is not indicated due to disease extension, co-morbidities, or other technical reasons), or metastatic iCCA or mixed histology tumors (combined hepatocellular-cholangiocarcinoma [cHCC-CCA])
  4. FGFR2 gene fusion status confirmed by NGS or FISH testing

    • Test positive by FISH by the central laboratory designated by the Sponsor
    • Have FGFR2 gene fusion documented by a local or central laboratory using standard protocols and approved by local IRB/EC, by CLIA or other similar agency. If the FGFR2 gene fusion is identified by a laboratory other than the Sponsor's central laboratory, then archival and/or recent tissue biopsy samples or a tissue block suitable for genetic testing must be available for confirmatory testing by FISH by the Sponsor's central laboratory. If a subject has documentation from the central laboratory indicating that they test negative for FGFR2 gene fusion, that subject may not be enrolled in the study.
  5. Received at least one regimen of prior systemic therapy and then experienced documented radiographic progression or was not able to tolerate prior systemic therapy.

    • If the subject received at least 4 cycles of systemic therapy and no measurable tumor reduction compared to the previous scan is observed, such subject can be enrolled
    • If the subject received immunotherapy, the documented radiographic disease progression is required
  6. Measurable disease by RECIST version 1.1
  7. ECOG performance status ≤ 1
  8. Adequate organ functions as indicated by the following laboratory values (based on screening visit values from the central laboratory).

    • Hematological

      • Hemoglobin (Hgb) ≥ 9.0 g/dL
      • Absolute neutrophil count (ANC) ≥ 1.5 x 109/L
      • Platelet count ≥ 75 x 109/L
      • International normalized ratio (INR) 0.8 to upper limit of normal (ULN) or ≤ 3 for subjects receiving anticoagulant therapy such as Coumadin or heparin
    • Hepatic

      • Total bilirubin ≤ 2 x ULN
      • AST and ALT ≤ 3 ULN (≤ 5 x ULN for subjects with liver metastases)
      • Albumin ≥ 2.8 g/dL
    • Renal

      • Serum creatinine ≤ 1.5 x ULN
      • Creatinine clearance of ≥ 60 mL/min as estimated by the Cockcroft-Gault equation
  9. Male or female subjects of child-producing potential must agree to use double-barrier contraceptive measures, oral contraception, or avoidance of intercourse during the study and for 90 days after the last dose of ARQ 087

Exclusion Criteria:

  1. Systemic anti-cancer therapy, such as chemotherapy, immunotherapy, hormonal, targeted therapy, or investigational agents within four weeks of the first dose of ARQ 087
  2. Major surgery, locoregional therapy, or radiation therapy within four weeks of the first dose of ARQ 087
  3. Previous treatment with any FGFR inhibitor (e.g., ponatinib, dovitinib, nintedanib, AZD4547, NVP-BGJ398, LY2784455, BAY1163877)

    - Subjects who received less than four weeks of therapy and were unable to continue therapy due to toxicity will be allowed to participate

  4. Unable or unwilling to swallow the complete daily dose of ARQ 087 capsules
  5. Clinically unstable central nervous system (CNS) metastases (to be eligible, subjects must have stable disease ≥ 3 months, confirmed by magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) or computed tomography (CT) scan, and/or have CNS metastases well controlled by low-dose steroids, anti-epileptics, or other symptom-relieving medications)
  6. Current evidence of corneal or retinal disorder, including but not limited to bullous/band keratopathy, keratoconjunctivitis, corneal abrasion, inflammation/ulceration, confirmed by ophthalmologic examination
  7. Concurrent uncontrolled or active hepatobiliary disorders, untreated or ongoing complications after laparoscopic procedures or stent placement, including but not limited to active cholangitis, biloma or abscess (to be eligible, the subjects have to be treated and disorders/complications should be resolved within 2 weeks prior to the first dose of ARQ 087)
  8. History of significant cardiac disorders:

    • Myocardial infarction (MI) or congestive heart failure defined as Class II to IV per the New York Heart Association (NYHA) classification within 6 months of the first dose of ARQ 087 (MI that occurred > 6 months prior to the first dose of ARQ 087 will be permitted)
    • QTcF >500 msec (males or females)
  9. Significant gastrointestinal disorder(s) that could, in the opinion of the Investigator, interfere with the absorption, metabolism, or excretion of ARQ 087 (e.g., Crohn's disease, ulcerative colitis, extensive gastric resection)
  10. Previous malignancy within 2 years of the first dose of ARQ 087, except curatively treated or low grade malignancies such as non-melanoma skin cancer, carcinoma in-situ of the breast, cervix, and superficial bladder tumors
  11. Concurrent uncontrolled illness not related to cancer, including but not limited to:

    • Psychiatric illness/substance abuse/social situation that would limit compliance with study requirements
    • Known uncontrolled human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) infection
  12. Blood or albumin transfusion within 5 days of the blood draw being used to confirm eligibility
