Efficacy of Nilotinib in First or Second Line Treatment of Primary Melanomas Stage III Unresectable Melanomas.
Phase II Multicentric Uncontrolled National Trial Assessing the Efficacy of Nilotinib in First or Second Line Treatment of Primary Melanomas , Stage III Unresectable Melanomas, or Stage IV Melanomas With c-KIT Mutation or Amplification.

NILOMEL is a phase II multicentric uncontrolled open national trial assessing the efficacy of Nilotinib in first or second line treatment of primary melanomas , stage III unresectable melanomas, or Stage IV melanomas with c-KIT mutation or amplification. The primary objective is overall response rate (partial and complete response) according to RECIST 1.1 criteria, assessed using CT-SCAN (stage IV melanoma) or MRI (unresectable melanoma) after 6 months therapy with Nilotinib 800 mg/d. Secondary objectives include:

  • Disease control rate (complete, partial response and stable disease)
  • Metabolic response
  • Tolerance NCI CTCAE Version 3.0
  • Biomarkers associated to response and disease control.

NILOMEL is a phase II multicentric uncontrolled open national trial assessing the efficacy of Nilotinib in first or second line treatment of primary melanomas , stage III unresectable melanomas, or Stage IV melanomas with c-KIT mutation or amplification (in case of c-KIT amplification, no B-RAF nor N-Ras mutation should be detected). The primary objective is overall response rate (partial and complete response) according to RECIST 1.1 criteria, assessed using CT-SCAN (stage IV melanoma) or MRI (unresectable melanoma) after 6 months therapy with Nilotinib 800 mg/d. Secondary objectives include:

  • Disease control rate (complete, partial response and stable disease) according to RECIST
  • Metabolic response rate (TEP-SCAN)
  • Tolerance NCI CTCAE Version 3.0
  • Biomarkers associated to response and disease control (evaluated at M0, M1 and M6). Protein analysis of c-KIT, PI3K, MAPK and STAT signalling pathways as well as PDGFR and Ephrin signalling pathways.

Patients with progressive disease after 3 months therapy will be withdrawn. Patient with stable disease after 3 months will continue Nilotinib until evaluation at 6 months. Patients with stable disease or progressive disease at 6 months will continue Nilotinib until progression.

The trial has been planned using a one-stage design (Fleming TR) . We considered that a response rate under 7.5% would define the null hypothesis of no efficacy . To detect a response rate of 30% or more with power 90% using a one-sided test at the 0.05 level, 25 patients have to be recruited.
