Brief Summary:
CONTESSA 2 is a multinational, multicenter, Phase 2 study of tesetaxel in patients with taxane-naïve, HER2 negative, HR positive, locally advanced or metastatic breast cancer (LA/MBC). The primary objective of the study is to establish the efficacy of tesetaxel plus a reduced dose of capecitabine, based on objective response rate (ORR) as assessed by an Independent Radiologic Review Committee (IRC). Approximately 125 patients will be enrolled.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Breast Cancer Drug: Tesetaxel Drug: Capecitabine Phase 2

Detailed Description:
CONTESSA 2 is a multinational, multicenter, Phase 2 study of tesetaxel, an investigational, orally administered taxane, in patients with HER2 negative, HR Positive, LA/MBC not previously treated with a taxane in the neoadjuvant, adjuvant or metastatic setting. This Study complements CONTESSA, a multinational, multicenter, randomized, Phase 3 study in patients with HER2 negative, HR positive LA/MBC previously treated with a taxane in the neoadjuvant or adjuvant setting. In CONTESSA 2, approximately 125 patients will be enrolled to receive tesetaxel at 27 mg/m2 orally once every 21 days on the first day of each 21-day cycle plus capecitabine at 825 mg/m2 orally twice daily (for a total daily dose of 1,650 mg/m2) for 14 days of each 21-day cycle. Patients in the dense pharmacokinetics (PK) cohort will also receive a single dose of capecitabine monotherapy prior to starting the combination regimen. Capecitabine is an oral chemotherapy agent that is considered a standard-of-care treatment in LA/MBC. The primary endpoint is ORR as assessed by an IRC. The secondary efficacy endpoints are duration of response as assessed by the IRC, progression-free survival as assessed by the IRC, disease control rate as assessed by the IRC and overall survival. CONTESSA 2 will also investigate the PK of tesetaxel.
