Brief Summary:

RATIONALE: Romidepsin and erlotinib hydrochloride may stop the growth of tumor cells by blocking some of the enzymes needed for cell growth.

PURPOSE: This phase I/II trial is studying the side effects and best dose of romidepsin when given together with erlotinib hydrochloride and to see how well they work in treating patients with stage III or stage IV non-small cell lung cancer.


Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Lung Cancer Metastatic Cancer Combination Product: Erlotinib plus Romidepsin (8 mg/m^2) Combination Product: Erlotinib plus Romidepsin (10 mg/m^2) Combination Product: Erlotinib plus Romidepsin (10 mg/m^2) + Antiemetic prophylaxis Combination Product: (Erlotinib plus Romidepsin (8mg/m^2)) + Antiemetic prophylaxis Phase 1

Detailed Description:

OBJECTIVES:

Primary

  • To characterize the toxicity and determine the maximum-tolerated dose (MTD) of erlotinib hydrochloride plus romidepsin. (Phase I)
  • To obtain preliminary data regarding efficacy, including response rate and progression-free survival. (Phase II)

Secondary

  • To characterize the pharmacokinetic profile of romidepsin in combination with erlotinib hydrochloride.
  • To evaluate the impact of erlotinib hydrochloride on the biologic activity of romidepsin by analyzing peripheral blood mononuclear cell (PBMC) histone acetylation status and histone acetylase activity. (Exploratory)
  • To evaluate the effect of romidepsin and erlotinib hydrochloride on components of the EGFR (epidermal growth factor receptor)-signaling pathway in skin biopsies, particularly downstream mediators such as MAPK (mitogen-activated protein kinase). (Exploratory)

OUTLINE: This is a dose-escalation study of romidepsin followed by a phase II study.

Patients receive romidepsin IV on days 1, 8, and 15 and erlotinib hydrochloride orally (PO) once daily beginning on day 3 of course 1 and on days 1-28 of all subsequent courses. Courses repeat every 28 days in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity.

Patients undergo blood sample collection at baseline and periodically during study for pharmacokinetic studies. Additional samples of peripheral blood mononuclear cells and skin biopsies may be also collected for correlative studies.

After completion of study therapy, patients are followed up for 30 days.

PROJECTED ACCRUAL: A total of 39 patients (15 patients for phase I and 24 patients for phase II) will be accrued for this study.

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Number of Participants With Dose Limiting Toxicities and Maximum Tolerated Dose (MTD) [ Time Frame: 12 months ]
    Dose limiting toxicities per Protocol definition using (CTCAE), Version 3.0


Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Area Under the Concentration-time Curve (AUC0 t) of Romidepsin in Combination With Erlotinib [ Time Frame: 0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 6, 8, 12, 24, 48, 72 hours post-dose on Days 1 and 8 ]
    AUC0 t was measured in the time interval from 0 to time (t) when the last blood sample is collected with a concentration above the limit of quantification.

Layout table for eligibility information
Ages Eligible for Study:   18 Years and older   (Adult, Older Adult)
Sexes Eligible for Study:   All
Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   No
Criteria

To be eligible for study participation, patients must fulfill all of the following criteria:

  • Histologically confirmed locally advanced or metastatic (stage IIIB pleural effusion or stage IV) NSCLC;
  • Age ≥ 18 years;
  • Written informed consent;
  • Measurable disease as defined by Response Evaluation Criteria in Solid Tumors (RECIST);
  • ECOG (Eastern Cooperative Oncology Group ) performance status 0 to 1;
  • Serum potassium and magnesium greater than or equal to the lower limit of institutional normal range (electrolyte abnormalities may be corrected with supplementation to meet inclusion criteria);
  • Negative urine or serum pregnancy test on females of childbearing potential;
  • All women of childbearing potential must use an effective barrier method of contraception (an intrauterine contraceptive device [IUCD] or double barrier method using condoms or a diaphragm plus spermicide) during the treatment period and for at least 1 month thereafter. Male patients should use a barrier method of contraception during the treatment period and for at least 1 month thereafter. Hormonal methods of contraception such as the contraceptive pill or patch (particularly those containing ethinyl-estradiol) should be avoided due to a potential drug interaction (see Appendix D).
  • Adequate bone marrow, liver, and renal function as evidenced by
  • Hemoglobin ≥10 g/dL (transfusions and/or erythropoietin-stimulating agents are permitted)
