Brief Summary:
This phase II MATCH treatment trial identifies the effects of trametinib and dabrafenib in patients whose cancer has genetic changes called BRAF V600 mutations. Dabrafenib may stop the growth of cancer by blocking BRAF proteins which may be needed for cell growth. Trametinib may stop the growth of cancer cells by blocking MEK proteins which, in addition to BRAF proteins, may also be needed for cell growth. Researchers hope to learn if giving trametinib with dabrafenib will shrink this type of cancer or stop its growth.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Advanced Lymphoma Advanced Malignant Solid Neoplasm Hematopoietic and Lymphoid Cell Neoplasm Refractory Lymphoma Refractory Malignant Solid Neoplasm Refractory Plasma Cell Myeloma Drug: Dabrafenib Mesylate Drug: Trametinib Dimethyl Sulfoxide Phase 2

Detailed Description:

PRIMARY OBJECTIVE:

I. To evaluate the proportion of patients with objective response (OR) to targeted study agent(s) in patients with advanced refractory cancers/lymphomas/multiple myeloma.

SECONDARY OBJECTIVES:

I. To evaluate the proportion of patients alive and progression free at 6 months of treatment with targeted study agent in patients with advanced refractory cancers/lymphomas/multiple myeloma.

II. To evaluate time until death or disease progression. III. To identify potential predictive biomarkers beyond the genomic alteration by which treatment is assigned or resistance mechanisms using additional genomic, ribonucleic acid (RNA), protein and imaging-based assessment platforms.

IV. To assess whether radiomic phenotypes obtained from pre-treatment imaging and changes from pre- through post-therapy imaging can predict objective response and progression free survival and to evaluate the association between pre-treatment radiomic phenotypes and targeted gene mutation patterns of tumor biopsy specimens.

OUTLINE:

Patients receive dabrafenib mesylate orally (PO) twice daily (BID) and trametinib dimethyl sulfoxide PO once daily (QD) on days 1-28. Cycles repeat every 28 days in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity.

After completion of study treatment, patients are followed up every 3 months if less than 2 years from study entry, and then every 6 months for year 3 from study entry.

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Objective response rate (ORR) [ Time Frame: Tumor assessments occurred at baseline, then every 2 cycles for the first 26 cycles and every 3 cycles thereafter until disease progression, up to 3 years post registration ]
    ORR is defined as the percentage of patients whose tumors have a complete or partial response to treatment among eligible and treated patients. Objective response rate is defined consistent with Response Evaluation Criteria in Solid Tumors version 1.1, the Cheson (2014) criteria for lymphoma patients, and the Response Assessment in Neuro-Oncology criteria for glioblastoma patients. For each treatment arm, 90% two-sided binomial exact confidence interval will be calculated for ORR.


Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Overall survival (OS) [ Time Frame: Assessed every 3 months for =< 2 years and every 6 months for year 3 ]
    OS is defined as time from treatment start date to date of death from any cause. Patients alive at the time of analysis are censored at last contact date. OS will be evaluated specifically for each drug (or step) using the Kaplan-Meier method.

  2. Progression free survival (PFS) [ Time Frame: Assessed at baseline, then every 2 cycles for the first 26 cycles and every 3 cycles thereafter until disease progression, up to 3 years post registration ]
    PFS is defined as time from treatment start date to date of progression or death from any cause, whichever occurs first. PFS will be estimated using the Kaplan-Meier method.

Criteria

Inclusion Criteria:

  • Patients must have met applicable eligibility criteria in the Master MATCH Protocol prior to registration to treatment subprotocol
  • Patients must have a BRAF V600E or, V600K, V600R or V600D mutation, or another aberration, as identified via the MATCH Master Protocol
  • Prothrombin time (PT)/International normalized ratio (INR) and partial thromboplastin time (PTT) =< 1.3 x institutional ULN; subjects receiving anticoagulation treatment may be allowed to participate with INR established within the therapeutic range prior to registration to treatment
  • Patients must have an ECHO or a nuclear study (multigated aquisition scan [MUGA] or First Pass) within 4 weeks prior to registration to treatment and must not have a left ventricular ejection fraction (LVEF) < the institutional lower limit of normal (LLN). If the LLN is not defined at a site, the LVEF must be > 50% for the patient to be eligible
  • Patients must have an electrocardiogram (ECG) within 8 weeks prior to treatment assignment and must have NONE of the following cardiac criteria:

    • Clinically important abnormalities in rhythm, conduction or morphology of resting ECG (e.g. complete left bundle branch block, third degree heart block)
    • Treatment-refractory hypertension defined as a blood pressure of systolic > 140 mmHg and/or diastolic > 90 mmHg which cannot be controlled by anti-hypertensive therapy
