Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: Dose Escalation Phase (Phase Ib)
This phase will investigate two different dosing schedules of AZD2014: a continuous daily schedule (CC-Schedule) and an intermittent schedule of 2 days on and 5 days off treatment (IC-Schedule). The dose of Selumetinib (AZD6244) will remain unchanged in both schedules. The outcome of this investigation will determine whether an additional schedule of combined intermittent Selumetinib (AZD6244) (3 days on and 4 days off treatment) with intermittent AZD2014 will be considered (II-Schedule). The II-Schedule will be initiated following the completion of the corresponding continuous regimens and will only be investigated if escalation of the AZD2014 dose in the IC-Schedule is not feasible with the corresponding continuous Selumetinib (AZD6244) regimen. Up to three individual dose levels of Selumetinib (AZD6244) might subsequently be explored within the intermittent schedule of Selumetinib (AZD6244).
Drug: AZD2014
AZD2014 is a dual inhibitor of both mTORC1 (rapamycin-sensitive) and mTORC2 (rapamycin insensitive); compared to rapalogues, AZD2014 has a broader range of growth inhibitory activity in preclinical models based on a more profound mTORC1 inhibition and the additional inhibition of mTORC2. AZD2014 is currently in phase 2 studies in renal cell cancers and metastatic breast cancer.

Drug: AZD6244
Selumetinib (AZD6244, ARRY-142886) is an orally available, potent, selective, non-ATP competitive inhibitor of MEK1/MEK2 kinases. Selumetinib has demonstrated clinical efficacy in pre-treated KRAS-mutant NSCLC, leading to a significantly improved progression-free survival in combination with docetaxel compared to docetaxel alone.
Other Name: Selumetinib

Experimental: Dose Expansion Phase (Phase IIa)

Following the definition of the recommended Phase 2 Dose (RP2D), three NSCLC and one TNBC dose expansion cohorts are planned to perform a preliminary assessment of the anti-tumour efficacy in different molecular settings and to further establish the safety profile of the selected RP2D. These cohorts are:

  • Triple-negative breast cancer (TNBC)
  • Squamous cell lung cancers
  • Non-squamous cell lung cancers with KRAS mutations
  • Non-squamous cell lung cancers with wild-type KRAS

    • Grade 4 neutropenia lasting >7days or febrile neutropenia
    • Grade 3 thrombocytopenia with bleeding or grade 4 thrombocytopenia
    • Inability to receive at least 75% of the planned doses due to unresolved toxicity
