Brief Summary:
This study is an interventional, prospective, multicentric, single-arm, open label, phase Ib clinical trial. This study will be carried out in patients diagnosed of metastatic or locally advanced unresectable triple negative breast cancer with activation of ERK and/or CDK4/6 in which the following will be assesed: the overall response rate, the aggregation of antitumor effect depending on the different kinome profiles and the safety profile to the combination of palbociclib and binimetinib.

Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: Palbociclib + Binimetinib Drug: Combination, Palbociclib + Binimetinib

Patients will then start treatment with continuous oral binimetinib 45 mg/BID and palbociclib 100 mg daily, 21 days on / 7 days off, until disease progression. Study treatment will continue until disease progression.

If treatment tolerance is good, after a full cycle patients will be allowed to escalate palbociclib to 125 mg, according to the study investigators' decision. Alternatively, patients with non tolerable grade 2 events will resume at 30 mg/BID of binimetinib upon recovery, maintaining palbociclib at 100 mg 21-on/7-off. Depending on the side-effects, in case of clear relationship with palbociclib is established, palbociclib -instead of binimetinib - will be reduced to 75 mg daily.

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Progression Free survival [ Time Frame: 3 months ]
    Time from the date of first dose of study treatment to the date of progression or death (from any cause).

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Overall Response Rate [ Time Frame: 1 year ]
    Percentage of patients that achieve complete response or partial response according to RECIST 1.1 criteria

  2. Incidence of treatment-Emergent Adverse Event [ Time Frame: 1 year ]
    Percentage of patients with each adverse event

  4. Patient must have experienced disease progression to the previous treatment line according to the RECIST 1.1 or iRECIST criteria.
  5. Availability of tumor tissue for ERK and CDK4/6 testing is mandatory prior to study inclusion, preferably obtained after last treatment or the most recent sample as possible (from metastatic site or first diagnosis according to sample availability). If the patient has not a tumor sample available prior to study inclusion, the patient will not be allowed to participate in the study.
