Brief Summary:
This phase II trial studies how well pevonedistat alone or in combination with chemotherapy (paclitaxel and carboplatin) works in treating patients with bile duct cancer of the liver. Pevonedistat may stop the growth of tumor cells by blocking some of the enzymes needed for cell growth. Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as paclitaxel and carboplatin, work in different ways to stop the growth of tumor cells, either by killing the cells, by stopping them from dividing, or by stopping them from spreading. This study may help the study doctors find out how well pevonedistat shrinks bile duct cancer of the liver when given alone and when in combination with paclitaxel and carboplatin.

Detailed Description:

PRIMARY OBJECTIVE:

I. To determine the objective response rate of pevonedistat as a single agent and in combination with carboplatin and paclitaxel in patients with unresectable intrahepatic cholangiocarcinoma.

SECONDARY OBJECTIVES:

I. To evaluate the safety profile of pevonedistat alone and in combination with carboplatin and paclitaxel in patients with intrahepatic cholangiocarcinoma.

II. To determine the clinical benefit rate of patients with advanced intrahepatic cholangiocarcinoma (ICC) treated with pevonedistat monotherapy and in combination with carboplatin and paclitaxel.

III. To determine progression-free survival of patients treated with pevonedistat monotherapy and in combination with carboplatin and paclitaxel.

IV. To determine overall survival of patients treated with pevonedistat monotherapy and in combination with carboplatin and paclitaxel.

EXPLORATORY OBJECTIVES:

I. To determine whether overexpression of NEDD8, NAE1, and UBC12 predict response to treatment.

II. To identify the mutation profile of those cholangiocarcinomas with overexpression of the neddylation pathway.

III. To bank specimens for further future investigations.

OUTLINE: Patients are randomized to 1 of 2 arms.

ARM A: Patients receive pevonedistat intravenously (IV) over 60 minutes on days 1, 3, and 5. Cycles repeat every 21 days in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity.

ARM B: Patients receive pevonedistat IV over 1 hour on days 1, 3, and 5, paclitaxel IV over 3 hours on day 1, and carboplatin IV over 15-60 minutes on day 1. Cycles repeat every 21 days in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity. Starting cycle 5, patients may receive pevonedistat monotherapy at the discretion of treating physician.

After completion of study treatment, patients are followed up at 30 days after last dose of study treatment, then every 3 months for the first year and every 6 months for years 2-3.

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Objective response rate [ Time Frame: 3 years ]
    Will assess complete or partial response by Response Evaluation Criteria in Solid Tumors (RECIST) version 1.1.


Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Incidence of adverse events [ Time Frame: Up to 30 days after the last dose of treatment ]
  2. Clinical benefit rate [ Time Frame: 3 years ]
  3. Progression-free survival [ Time Frame: 3 years ]
  4. Overall survival [ Time Frame: 3 years ]

Other Outcome Measures:
  1. Overexpression of NEDD8, NAE1, and UBC12 [ Time Frame: 3 years ]
    Will determine whether overexpression of NEDD8, NAE1, and UBC12 predict response to treatment. Biomarker quantification will be calculated as a continuous variable (mean optical density) and also as ordered categories (ex. 0, 1+, 2+, or 3+). Biomarker quantification will then be correlated with treatment response. Descriptive statistics will primarily be generated to summarize the correlative data. Statistical significance will be determined by students' t-test for normally distributed data. If data distributions are not normal, non-parametric methods will be used (Wilcoxon rank sum test).

  2. Mutation profile of cholangiocarcinomas with overexpression of the neddylation pathway [ Time Frame: 3 years ]
  3. Specimen banking [ Time Frame: 3 years ]
