A Phase 1 Dose Escalation Study of VS-5584 Administered in Combination With VS-6063, in Subjects With Relapsed Malignant Mesothelioma

The safety and scientific validity of this study is the responsibility of the study sponsor and investigators. Listing a study does not mean it has been evaluated by the U.S. Federal Government. Read our disclaimer for details. Identifier: NCT02372227
Recruitment Status : Terminated
First Posted : February 26, 2015
Last Update Posted : January 30, 2017

Verastem, Inc.

Brief Summary:
The purpose of this study is to evaluate rising dose levels of VS-5584 administered in combination with a fixed dose of VS-6063 in subjects with relapsed malignant mesothelioma to determine a recommended Phase 2 dose (RP2D) for further development of this combination in this indication.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Relapsed Malignant Mesothelioma Drug: VS-5584 and VS-6063 Phase 1

Detailed Description:

This study is comprised of 2 sequential parts: Part 1 (Dose Escalation of VS-5584) and Part 2 (Expansion). Up to 56 evaluable subjects (i.e., subjects who complete at least 1 cycle [21 days] of therapy) will be enrolled, assuming that:

  • Up to 6 dose levels of VS-5584 are studied in Part 1 (Dose Escalation of VS-5584) in combination with a fixed dose of VS-6063 at 400 mg twice daily (BID) with a maximum of 6 subjects enrolled per VS-5584 dose level, for a total of up to 36 subjects (exclusive of replacement subjects).
  • Up to an additional 20 evaluable subjects may be enrolled in Part 2, the expansion portion of the study. Subjects will be treated with VS-5584 at the RP2D and schedule determined in the dose escalation portion of the study in combination with a fixed dose of VS-6063.

Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: VS-5584 and VS-6063 Drug: VS-5584 and VS-6063
Starting dose of VS-5584 will be 20mg taken once daily, 3x/week of each 21 day cycle. All subjects will also receive 2x/day treatment with 400mg VS-6063 in 21 day cycles. Number of Cycles: until progression or unacceptable toxicity develops.

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Incidence of dose-limiting toxicities (DLTs) [ Time Frame: 6 months ]
    Dose Escalation Phase: Frequency of DLTs at each dose level associated with administration of VS-5584 and VS-6063 in a 21 day cycle

  2. Safety and tolerability of the combination of VS-5584 and VS-6063 [ Time Frame: 16 months ]
    Dose Escalation Phase and Expansion Phase: A composite by dose level to include incidence of AEs, SAEs (overall and severity), laboratory abnormalities, ECGs, vital signs, Karnofsky Performance Status, dose interruptions and dose reductions as a measure of safety and tolerability

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Pharmacokinetics of VS-5584 & VS-6063 maximum observed plasma concentration (Cmax) [ Time Frame: 0-48 hours per patient ]
  2. Pharmacokinetics of VS-5584 & VS-6063 plasma area under the curve from time zero to last quantifiable concentration (AUClast) [ Time Frame: 0-48 hours per patient ]
  3. Pharmacokinetics of VS-5584 & VS-6063 time to reach maximum observed concentration (Tmax) [ Time Frame: 0-48 hours per patient ]
  4. Pharmacokinetics of VS-5584 & VS-6063 area under the curve from time zero to extrapolated infinite time (AUCO-inf) [ Time Frame: 0-48 hours per patient ]
  5. Pharmacokinetics of VS-5584 & VS-6063 apparent oral clearance (CL/F) [ Time Frame: 0-48 hours per patient ]
  6. Pharmacokinetics of VS-5584 & VS-6063 apparent volume of distribution (Vz/F) [ Time Frame: 0-48 hours per patient ]
  7. Pharmacokinetics of VS-5584 & VS-6063 trough plasma concentration [ Time Frame: 0-48 hours per patient ]
