Brief Summary:
This phase I/II trial studies best dose of ipatasertib and how well it works with carboplatin with or without paclitaxel in treating patients with triple negative breast cancer that has spread to other places in the body. Ipatasertib may stop the growth of tumor cells by blocking some of the enzymes needed for cell growth. Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as carboplatin and paclitaxel, work in different ways to stop the growth of tumor cells, either by killing the cells, by stopping them from dividing, or by stopping them from spreading. It is not yet known whether giving ipatasertib and carboplatin with or without paclitaxel will work better in treating patients with triple negative breast cancer.

Detailed Description:

PRIMARY OBJECTIVES:

I. To determine the recommended phase II dose of ipatasertib plus either carboplatin or carboplatin/paclitaxel in patients with metastatic triple negative breast cancer (TNBC). (Phase I) II. To obtain initial evidence of activity by examining progression free survival for each dose regimen. (Phase IB)

SECONDARY OBJECTIVES:

I. To confirm the recommended phase II dose (RPIID) safety in expanded cohort by evaluating toxicities and confirm tolerability of the combinations.

II. To obtain evidence of activity by examining response rate based on Response Evaluation Criteria in Solid Tumors (RECIST) 1.1.

III. To evaluate clinical benefit rate (CBR), event-free survival, time-to-treatment failure and overall survival.

IV. Further describe the cumulative toxicities (Common Terminology Criteria for Adverse Events [CTCAE] 5.0) of the combinations.

V. To evaluate patient?s quality of life (QOL).

EXPLORATORY OBJECTIVES:

I. To evaluate the progression-free survival and overall survival, based on the genomic alterations including PIK3CA/AKT/PTEN alterations and BRCA status.

II. To study the association of TNBC messenger ribonucleic acid (mRNA) expression profiling including Vanderbilt molecular subtype and treatment response.

III. To study the association of stool microbiome, calprotectin with diarrhea. IV. To study peripheral blood circulating tumor deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA). V. To study therapy resistance by analyzing tumor genomics and transcriptome analysis.

OUTLINE: This is a phase I, dose-escalation trial of ipatasertib, followed by a phase II trial. Patients are randomized or assigned to 1 of 2 treatment schedules depending on available slots.

SCHEDULE A: Patients receive ipatasertib orally (PO) once daily (QD) on days 1-28. Patients also receive carboplatin intravenously (IV) over 30 minutes and paclitaxel IV over 60 minutes on days 1, 8, and 15 or days 1 and 15. Cycles repeat every 28 days in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity.

SCHEDULE B: Patients receive ipatasertib PO QD on days 1-28. Patients also receive carboplatin IV over 30 minutes on days 1, 8, and 15 or days 1 and 15. Cycles repeat every 28 days in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity.

After completion of study treatment, patients are followed up every 3 months for 36 months.

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Recommended phase II dose (RP2D) of ipatasertib (Phase I) [ Time Frame: Up to 28 days ]
    Tables will be created to summarize all toxicities and side effects by grade, attribution, dose, course (cycle 1 versus [vs] later cycles), organ and severity. Rates and associated 95% confidence limits will be estimated for dose-limiting toxicities (DLTs) at the RP2D, clinical benefit, response, and PIK3CA mutation rate.

  2. Progression-free survival (PFS) (Phase II) [ Time Frame: Up to 36 months ]
    Kaplan Meier methods will be used to estimate the median and 95% confidence limits.


Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. RP2D safety in expanded cohort [ Time Frame: Up to 28 days ]
    The safety of the RP2D in the expanded cohort will be done by evaluating toxicities and confirming the tolerability of the drug combinations. Tables will be created to summarize all toxicities and side effects by grade, attribution, dose, course (cycle 1 vs later cycles), organ and severity. Rates and associated 95% confidence limits will be estimated for (DLTs at the RP2D, clinical benefit, response, and PIK3CA mutation rate.

  2. Evidence of activity by response rate [ Time Frame: Up to 36 months ]
    Will be assessed by Response Evaluation Criteria in Solid Tumors (RECIST) 1.1.

  3. Clinical benefit rate [ Time Frame: Up to 36 months ]
  4. Event-free survival (EFS) [ Time Frame: Up to 36 months ]
    Kaplan Meier methods will be used to estimate the median and 95% confidence limits.

  5. Time-to-treatment failure (TTF) [ Time Frame: Up to 36 months ]
  6. Overall survival (OS) [ Time Frame: Up to 36 months ]
    Kaplan Meier methods will be used to estimate the median and 95% confidence limits.

  7. Incidence of adverse events [ Time Frame: Up to 36 months ]
    Will be assessed using Common Terminology Criteria for Adverse Events (CTCAE) version 5.0.

  8. Quality of life [ Time Frame: Up to 6 months after radiographic disease progression ]
    Will be assessed using European Organization for Research and Treatment of Cancer Quality of Life Questionnaire-Core 30 (EORTC QLQ-C30) questionnaire.


Other Outcome Measures:
  1. PFS based on genomic alterations [ Time Frame: Up to 36 months ]
    Kaplan Meier methods will be used to estimate the median and 95% confidence limits for PFS, EFS, and OS. Subgroup analysis based on correlative biomarkers per secondary endpoints will also be conducted.

  2. OS based on genomic alterations [ Time Frame: Up to 36 months ]
    Kaplan Meier methods will be used to estimate the median and 95% confidence limits for PFS, EFS, and OS. Subgroup analysis based on correlative biomarkers per secondary endpoints will also be conducted.

  3. Association of triple negative breast cancer (TBNC) messenger ribonucleic acid (RNA) expression profiling [ Time Frame: Up to 36 months ]
    Will include Vanderbilt molecular subtype and treatment response.

  4. Association of stool microbiome, calprotectin with diarrhea [ Time Frame: Up to 36 months ]
    The differences in gut microbiota within and between fecal samples will be compared using alpha and beta diversity metrics based on 16S ribosomal (r)RNA sequencing.

  5. Therapy resistance [ Time Frame: Up to 36 months ]
    Will be studied by analyzing tumor genomics and transcriptome analysis through collection of blood samples and DNA extraction to identify germline and/or somatic mutations that are predictive of response, are associated with progression, acquired resistance susceptibility to developing adverse events or increase knowledge and understanding of disease biology.
