Brief Summary:
This study is a multi-center, randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled, Phase 2 study in postmenopausal women with heregulin positive, hormone receptor positive, HER2 negative metastatic, unresectable breast cancer.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Metastatic Breast Cancer Drug: Seribantumab Drug: Fulvestrant Drug: Placebo Phase 2

Detailed Description:
This study is a randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled international phase 2 trial in patients with HRG+, HR+, HER2- metastatic breast cancer that has progressed following treatment with no more than 2 prior therapies, one of which must have been a CDK inhibitor. All patients will be screened for heregulin using central testing, and eligible patients will be randomized to receive either seribantumab + fulvestrant or placebo + fulvestrant. Disease status will be assessed according to RECIST v 1.1 to support the primary endpoint.

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Progression Free Survival [ Time Frame: Randomization until progression of disease or death due to any cause up to 13 months (The study terminated prematurely) . The primary analysis was planned to be initiated when 58 PFS events have occurred ]

    Progression Free Survival is defined as the time from randomization to the first documented radiographical progression of disease using RECIST v1.1 or death from any cause, whichever comes first as assessed by the investigator.

    The tumor assessment (i.e., scan dates) was used for progression/censor date not the date corresponding to the determination of overall response. Progression-free survival time distribution and median survival for each treatment group were analyzed using the Kaplan-Meier method.



Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Overall Survival [ Time Frame: Randomization until death due to any cause up to 13 months (The study terminated prematurely) ]
    Overall Survival (OS) is defined as the time from the date of randomization to the date of death from any cause. The study was terminated on 30 Nov 2018 . Data represents outcomes up to 150 days of treatment.

  2. Objective Response Rate [ Time Frame: Randomization through end of study up to 13 months (The study terminated prematurely) ]
    Objective Response Rate (ORR) is defined as the proportion of patients with a RECIST v1.1 response recorded from randomization until disease progression characterized as either a Complete Response (CR) or Partial Response (PR) relative to the total number of evaluable patients.

  3. Time to Progression [ Time Frame: Randomization to date of objective tumor progression up to 13 months (The study terminated prematurely) ]
    Time to Progression (TTP) is defined as the time from the date of randomization to the date of objective tumor progression.

  4. Number of Participants With Treatment-emergent Adverse Events Reported With the Combinations of Seribantumab Plus Fulvestrant Versus Fulvestrant Alone [ Time Frame: TEAEs were collected through the study completion (30 Nov 2018), up to 13 months. Frequency and percent summaries were presented for TEAE defined as adverse events that occur or worsen in severity following the first dose of seribantumab, or fulvestrant ]
    Treatment-emergent adverse events (TEAEs) are defined as any event that occurred after the first dose of study drug and was not present prior to study drug administration or worsened in severity after study drug administration.

  5. Percentage of Treatment-emergent Adverse Events Reported With the Combinations of Seribantumab Plus Fulvestrant Versus Fulvestrant Alone [ Time Frame: TEAEs were collected through the study completion (30 Nov 2018), up to 13 months. Frequency and percent summaries were presented for TEAE defined as adverse events that occur or worsen in severity following the first dose of seribantumab, or fulvestrant ]
    Treatment-emergent adverse events (TEAEs) are defined as any event that occurred after the first dose of study drug and was not present prior to study drug administration or worsened in severity after study drug administration.

  6. Pharmacokinetic (PK) Profile of Seribantumab When Given in Combination With Fulvestrant and of Fulvestrant When Given in Combination With Serbantumab. [ Time Frame: The study terminated prematurely after 13 months. Were to be analyzed post-dose on Cycle 1,Week 1 & pre-dose for all subsequent seribantumab infusions until the completion of Cycle 2. Fulvestrant PK samples were to be collected prior to seribantumab dose ]
    Pharmacokinetic (PK) evaluation are performed on samples obtained pre-dose on day 1 and 15 of each 28-day cycle to assess pre-treatment trough concentrations of MM-121. The maximum observed concentration (Cmax) is presented and calculated usig Non-compartmental analysis (NCA). Serum levels of MM-121 are measured at a central lab using an enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA).

Criteria

Inclusion Criteria:

To be eligible for participation in the study, patients must meet the following criteria. Patients who are HRG negative do not need to complete screening procedures beyond HRG assessment.

  6. Patients that have progressed following at least one but no more than two prior systemic therapies in the locally advanced or metastatic disease setting.
  7. Patients with documented progression of locally advanced or metastatic disease as defined by RECISTv1.1 (Exception: patients with bone-only metastatic disease are eligible if they have at least 2 lytic lesions visible on a CT or MRI and have documented disease progression on prior therapy based on the appearance of new lesions).
  8. Patients with bone-only lesions who have received radiation to those lesions must have documented progression following radiation therapy.
