Brief Summary:

The standard or usual treatment for this disease is to undergo chemotherapy to slow the spread of disease and relieve some symptoms of cancer. One of the standard types of chemotherapy is a drug called paclitaxel (Taxol) given in a low dose every week for three out of four weeks.

CFI-402257 is a new type of drug for breast cancer. Laboratory tests show that it may help slow the growth of breast cancer. This drug has been shown to shrink tumours in animals. CFI-402257 has been studied in a few people and appears well tolerated with little side effects. CFI-402257 seems promising but it is not clear if it can offer better results when given with paclitaxel compared to paclitaxel alone.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Breast Cancer Drug: CFI-402257 Drug: Paclitaxel Phase 1 Phase 2

Detailed Description:

Phase I:

The purpose of the first phase of the study is to find the highest dose of CFI-402257 that can be tolerated without causing very severe side effects when receiving paclitaxel. This is done by starting at a dose lower than the one that is tolerated in patients when given on its own. Participants are given CFI-402257 together with paclitaxel and are watched very closely to see what side effects they have and to make sure the side effects are not severe. If the side effects are not severe, then new participants will be given a higher dose of CFI-402257. Participants joining this study later on will get higher doses of CFI-402257 than participants who join earlier. This will continue until a dose is found that causes severe but temporary side effects. Doses higher than that will not be given.

Phase II:

The purpose of the second phase will be to find out the effect that CFI-402257 has on breast cancer, using doses found to be safe in the first phase of the study, when given with paclitaxel.

Layout table for eligibility information
Ages Eligible for Study:   18 Years and older   (Adult, Older Adult)
Sexes Eligible for Study:   Female
Gender Based Eligibility:   Yes
Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   No

Inclusion Criteria:

  • Patients must have histologically and/or cytologically confirmed diagnosis of breast cancer that is advanced/metastatic/recurrent or unresectable, for which no curative therapy exists, and for which systemic therapy is indicated. Only female patients will be enrolled
  • All patients must have a formalin fixed paraffin embedded tissue block (from primary or metastatic tumour) available and must have provided informed consent for the release of the block. Biopsies are optional but strongly encouraged for patients with accessible disease suitable for biopsy. The timing of tumour biopsies for patients who provide informed consent and are willing is prior to treatment (after enrollment) and again no later than the end of the day following the day 8 paclitaxel infusion. Lesions planned for biopsy may not be the only target lesion.
  • Presence of clinically and/or radiologically documented disease. All radiology studies must be performed within 21 days prior to enrollment (within 28 days if negative). For phase Ib, patients are not required to have measurable disease as defined by RECIST 1.1 but must not have bone-only or marker only disease. For phase II, all patients must have measurable disease as defined by RECIST 1.1. The criteria for defining measurable disease are as follows:

Chest xray ≥ 20mm; CT scan ≥ 10mm (longest diameter); Physical exam ≥10mm; Lymph nodes by CT scan ≥ 15mm (measured in short axis)

  • Patients must be ≥18 years of age.
  • Patients must have an ECOG performance status of 0 or 1.
  • Patients must be able to swallow oral medications
  • Patients must have received at least one non-taxane containing chemotherapy regimen for advanced or metastatic disease unless:

    1. they have relapsed within 6 months of completion of adjuvant/neoadjuvant chemotherapy and the regiment did not contain taxane, or,
    2. they have received taxane and/or anthracycline-containing adjuvant/neoadjuvant chemotherapy 6 or more months prior to relapse or;
    3. they have a documented contraindication to palliative chemotherapy other than weekly paclitaxel.
  • Patients must not be considered appropriate for endocrine therapy and must not have received taxanes in the metastatic setting.
  • Patients may have received other therapies including endocrine therapy, immunotherapy, and/or targeted therapies (including CDK4/6 inhibitors).
