Brief Title  ICMJE Ribociclib + PDR001 in Breast Cancer and Ovarian Cancer
Official Title  ICMJE A Phase 1 Study of the CDK4/6 Inhibitor Ribociclib (LEE011) in Combination With the PD-1 Inhibitor PDR001 in Patients With Metastatic Hormone Receptor-positive Breast Cancer and Metastatic Ovarian Cancer
Brief Summary

This clinical trial is studying the drug Ribociclib (LEE011) in combination with an immunotherapy drug called PDR001 (a therapy that uses the body's own immune system to control cancer) as a possible treatment for metastatic hormone-receptor-positive (HR+), HER2-negative breast cancer (in combination with fulvestrant) or metastatic epithelial ovarian cancer.

The names of the medications involved in this study are:

  • Ribociclib (LEE011)
  • PDR001
  • Fulvestrant
Detailed Description
  • This research study is a Phase I clinical trial, which tests the safety of an investigational combination of drugs (LEE011 with PDR001), and tries to define the appropriate dose of the above combination of investigational drugs to use for further studies. "Investigational" means that the intervention is being studied.
  • The FDA (the U.S. Food and Drug Administration) has approved LEE011 as a treatment for hormone receptor positive metastatic breast cancer.
  • The FDA has not approved PDR001 as treatment for any type of cancer.
  • The FDA has approved fulvestrant as a treatment for hormone receptor positive metastatic breast cancer.
  • When given separately these medications work in different ways to try and stop cancer cells from growing and spreading.

    • LEE011 is a drug designed to block certain proteins called cyclin-dependent kinases (CDKs) that are required for cells to divide. These proteins may also control the ability of certain cancers to grow.
    • PDR001 is an antibody. Antibodies are proteins usually produced by the body that help protect against foreign matter, such as bacteria and viruses. PDR001 blocks a protein called PD-1 which is present on cells called T-lymphocytes, which are involved in the immune response. PDR001 is being tested to see if it will allow the body's immune system to work against tumor cells. Other studies have shown that blocking PD-1 may result in reduced tumor cell growth in a variety of solid tumors.
    • Fulvestrant is an estrogen receptor antagonist that is indicated for the treatment of postmenopausal women with HR+ MBC.
  • In this research study, the investigators are looking for a safe and tolerable dose of LEE011 that can be given in combination with PDR001 for participants with metastatic hormone-receptor-positive (HR+), HER2-negative breast cancer (in combination with fulvestrant) or metastatic epithelial ovarian cancer.
