Gender Eligibility Description:   Endometrial Cancer
Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   No

Inclusion Criteria:

  • Patients must have signed an approved informed consent and authorization permitting release of personal information.
  • Patient must consent to the collection of archival tumor tissue for biomarker testing. Availability of archival tissue for biomarker testing must be confirmed by the site prior to screening of patient. Suitability of archival tissue that was not FFPE must be discussed with the Principal Investigator. Archival tissue consists of either a minimum of 10 FFPE slides or FFPE tissue block. Patients with no available archival tissue (or if the sample is difficult to obtain) may undergo a tumor biopsy to meet eligibility criteria, as long as the patient consents to this procedure and the biopsy can be obtained with minimal risk and discomfort to the patient.

  • Eastern Cooperative Oncology Group (ECOG) performance status of 0 or 1 AND Karnofsky Performance Status (KPS) ≥ 80
  • Patients must have had at least one but no more than two prior chemotherapeutic regimens for management of endometrial carcinoma (including adjuvant chemotherapy). Initial treatment may include chemotherapy, chemotherapy and radiation therapy, and/or consolidation/maintenance therapy.

    • Chemotherapy administered in conjunction with primary radiation as a radiosensitizer WILL be counted as a systemic chemotherapy regimen.
  • Patients are not required to but may have received a single line of prior hormonal therapy with either an antiestrogen, anti-progesterone (or combination) or an aromatase inhibitor. Patients may not have received more than 1 line of endocrine therapy. This will not count toward prior therapy total.
  • Resolution of adverse effects of recent surgery, radiotherapy, chemotherapy, or hormonal therapy to Grade ≤1 prior to first study treatment with the exception of peripheral neuropathy and alopecia.
  • Postmenopausal status due to either surgical or natural menopause. Post-menopausal status due to surgical/natural menopause requires at least 1 of the following:

    • History of hysterectomy
    • Prior bilateral oophorectomy
    • Age ≥ 60
    • Age ≤ 60 and amenorrheic for at least 12 months (in the absence of chemotherapy, hormonal therapy or ovarian suppression) and FSH and estradiol levels in the postmenopausal range.
    • Have a negative serum pregnancy test at baseline (within 7 days prior to -initiation of treatment) and agree to use medically approved precautions to prevent pregnancy during the study and for 12 weeks following the last dose of Abemaciclib.
  • For patients of childbearing potential, agreement to use two effective forms of contraception (e.g., surgical sterilization, a reliable barrier method, birth control pills, or contraceptive hormone implants) and to continue its use for the duration of the study and for 30 days after the last abemaciclib dose.
  • Patients must agree to pre- and post-treatment tumor biopsies
  • Disease that is measurable as per RECIST v1.1.

    • Tumors within a previously irradiated field wi ll be designated as "nontarget" lesions unless progression is documented, or a biopsy is obtained to confirm persistence of tumor ≥ 90 days following completion of radiation therapy.
  • No active infection requiring antibiotics (with the exception of uncomplicated urinary tract infection). Any hormonal therapy directed at the malignant tumor must be discontinued at least 2 weeks prior to the first study treatment.
  • Patients must meet all the following criteria to be eligible for study entry:

    1. Patients must have recurrent or persistent endometrial carcinoma that is refractory to curative therapy or established treatments.
    2. Histologic confirmation of the original primary tumor is required.
    3. Histologic or cytologic confirmation of the recurrent/progressive disease is desired, but not required.
    4. Patients with the following histologic epithelial cell types are eligible: endometrioid adenocarcinoma, serous adenocarcinoma, undifferentiated carcinoma, de-differentiated, clear cell adenocarcinoma, mixed epithelial carcinoma, adenocarcinoma not otherwise specified (N.O.S.), mucinous adenocarcinoma, squamous cell carcinoma, and transitional cell carcinoma.

      • For mixed epithelial cell type endometrial carcinomas, the endometrioid component should comprise at least 95% of the total tumor and the non-endometrioid component should comprise less than 5% of the total tumor.
    5. Patient must have hormone receptor positive (HR+) endometrial cancer confirmed by MSK pathology:

      • To fulfill the requirement for HR+ disease, tumor must express by immunohistochemistry (IHC), at least 1 of the hormone receptors (estrogen receptor [ER] or progesterone receptor [PgR] as defined in the relevant American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO)/College of American Pathologists (CAP) guidelines (Hammond et al, 2010)

  • Inability to comply with study and follow-up procedures
  • Any other disease, metabolic dysfunction, physical examination finding, or clinical laboratory finding that, in the i nvestigator‟s opinion, gives reasonable suspicion of a disease or condition that contraindicates the use of an investigational drug or that may affect the interpretation of the results or render the patient at high risk from treatment complications
