Brief Summary:
It is postulated that focal sensitizing radiotherapy may potentiate the effectiveness of durvalumab. The purpose of this study is to test the safety and tolerability of 2 different dose levels of focal sensitizing radiation therapy given with durvalumab.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Ovarian Cancer Primary Peritoneal Carcinoma Fallopian Tube Cancer Radiation: Focal radiotherapy Drug: Durvalumab Phase 1

Detailed Description:

Durvalumab is a PDL-1 inhibitor, part of class of agents (called checkpoint inhibitors) designed to increase the ability of the immune system to recognize and work to eliminate cancers. Checkpoint inhibitors have been studied in recurrent ovarian, primary peritoneal and Fallopian cancers, and on their own show a low level of activity.

Radiation therapy is usually used in women with recurrent ovarian, primary peritoneal and Fallopian cancers to palliate symptoms related to progressive disease. However, radiation is know to modify the cancer immune environment and to release tumour antigens. These actions may potentiate the function of immune checkpoint inhibitors.

Study Type : Interventional  (Clinical Trial)
Estimated Enrollment : 22 participants
Allocation: N/A
Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment
Masking: None (Open Label)
Primary Purpose: Treatment
Official Title: Phase I (Safety Assessment) of Durvalumab (MEDI4736) With Focal Sensitizing Radiotherapy in Platinum Resistant Ovarian, Primary Peritoneal or Fallopian Tube Epithelial Carcinoma
Actual Study Start Date : April 1, 2018
Estimated Primary Completion Date : December 16, 2020
Estimated Study Completion Date : December 16, 2020

Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: Durvalumab and focal radiotherapy
Durvalumab 1500 mg IV every 28 days, and 2 fractions of focal sensitizing radiation with cycles 1 and 2 of treatment.
Radiation: Focal radiotherapy
Focal sensitizing radiotherapy will be given at a starting dose level of 24 Gray (6 Gy X 4 fractions), and may be escalated to 32 Gy (8Gy X4 fractions).

Drug: Durvalumab
Durvalumab 1500 mg IV every 28 days
Other Name: MEDI 4736

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Determine the maximum tolerated dose of durvalumab combined with focal irradiation for use in recurrent ovarian cancer [ Time Frame: First 4 weeks of therapy ]
    The maximum tolerated dose will be defined by dose-limiting toxicities and serious adverse events.

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Objective response rate [ Time Frame: From date of randomization until the date of first documented progression or date of death from any cause, whichever came first, assessed up to 100 months ]
    Objective Response rate as evaluated by RECIST (v 1.1) criteria 2) Progression free survival 3) Overall survival

  2. CA-125 response rate [ Time Frame: From date of study enrollment until confirmed CA-125 progression, through study completion, an average of 1 year ]
    Using GCIG CA-125 response criteria

  3. Immune-related response rate [ Time Frame: From date of study enrollment until confirmed immune-related disease progression, through study completion, an average of one1year ]
    Using Immune-related response criteria

Other Outcome Measures:
  1. Survival [ Time Frame: From date of study enrollment until death or study completion (maximum 12 months). ]
    Progression free survival and overall survival of the study population

Ages Eligible for Study:   19 Years to 99 Years   (Adult, Older Adult)
Sexes Eligible for Study:   Female
Gender Based Eligibility:   Yes
Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   No

Inclusion Criteria:

  • Provision of written informed consent prior to any study specific procedures
  • Female patients aged 19 years and older
  • Platinum-resistant (progression within 6 months of platinum based regimen) or platinum-refractory ovarian/fallopian tube/peritoneal origin.
  • High grade serous, endometrioid, clear cell, mucinous, malignant mixed Mullerian tumor, and low grade serous histotypes are permitted. Non-epithelial tumours will not be permitted.
  • ECOG performance status 0-1.
  • No more than 2 lines of therapy in the platinum-resistant setting.
  • No bowel obstructions within the preceding 6 months.
  • Last radiation therapy treatment ≥3 months prior to enrollment.
  • Expected survival >3 months.
  • All patients much have at least one site of measurable disease as defined by RECIST criteria (v.1.1).
  • All patients must have disease suitable for core biopsy and agree to study related biopsies. Disease suitable for biopsy can serve as radiation targets, but cannot be used for response assessment.
  • All patients must have at least 2 additional sites of disease that serve are suitable radiation targets (see section 6.2.1).
  • Lesions suitable for radiation targeting must meet all of the following criteria:
  • each target must be > 4 cc in volume by standard imaging techniques, such as CT scan, MRI, or radiograph
  • for each lesion, partial treatment of a tumour mass is permitted, but the treatment volume cannot be less than the equivalent of a 2cm sphere (4cc) and the two targets cannot be part of the same contiguous mass
  • must be outside of previously irradiated fields 12. Adequate organ and marrow function

Exclusion Criteria:

  • Subjects who cannot meet all the radiation planning constraints will not be eligible for this trial.
  • Participation in another clinical study with an investigational agent during the last 4 weeks.
  • Concurrent enrolment in another clinical study, the only exception being observational (non-interventional) clinical studies.
  • History of pneumonitis requiring treatment with steroids, or has a history of interstitial lung disease.
  • Patients who have contraindications to receiving radiation therapy, such as: Rheumatoid Arthritis, connective tissue disorders, Lupus, scleroderma, CREST syndrome, Crohn's syndrome, Ulcerative colitis, or other conditions identified by the Radiation Oncologist as unsuitable for radiation therapy.
  • Current or prior use of immunosuppressive medication within 28 days before the first dose of the study drug, with the exception of intra-nasal and inhaled corticosteroids or systemic corticosteroids at physiologic doses, which must not exceed 10 mg/day of prednisone, or an equivalent corticosteroid.
