Brief Summary:

AZD8186 is an orally-dosed, selective Phosphatidylinositol 3-kinase (PI3K) β/δ inhibitor that binds to PI3Kβ and PI3Kδ, and inhibits kinase activity and downstream pathways in vitro and in vivo. AZD8186 has shown significant anti-tumor activity in PTEN-deficient preclinical models, including prostate, triple negative breast cancer, squamous lung and germinal center diffuse large B-cell lymphoma models. PTEN deficiency is reported in approximately 20% of patients with gastric cancer and in 35-48% of those with human epidermal growth factor receptor 2(HER2)-positive gastric cancer. To date, there have been no clinical trials with AZD8186 alone or in combination with paclitaxel in advanced gastric cancer. Therefore, it is very important to conduct clinical trials of combination therapy of AZD8186 and paclitaxel in patients with metastatic/recurrent gastric cancer who have failed previous therapy, and to identify the clinical factors and biomarkers that predict effects of the combination therapy.

The purpose of the study is to define the maximal tolerated dose (MTD) and recommended phase 2 dose (RP2D) of paclitaxel and AZD8186 combination therapy in patients with advanced tumors and to evaluate the efficacy of paclitaxel and AZD8186 combination therapy as a second-line therapy in patients with advanced gastric cancer with PTEN aberrations. This study is divided into Phase 1b and Phase 2.

Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: AZD8186 in combination with paclitaxel Drug: AZD8186 in combination with paclitaxel

Phase 1b is planned for a 4-stage dose level and the traditional 3+3 design is applied. The RP2D will be determined based on the MTD and toxicity profiles.

In phase 2 part, RP2D from the phase 1b part will be applied.

  • AZD8186 ( )mg po bid, 5 days on, 2 days off
  • Paclitaxel ( )mg/m² on D1,8,15 every 4 weeks

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Maximal tolerated dose [ Time Frame: 4 weeks ]
  2. Recommended phase 2 dose [ Time Frame: 4 weeks ]
  3. Progression-free survival rate [ Time Frame: 4 months ]

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Dose-limiting toxicity [ Time Frame: 4 weeks ]
    Dose-limiting toxicity (DLT) assessment will be performed during the first cycle in phase 1b part, and is based on NCI-CTCAE (version 4.0).

  2. Overall survival [ Time Frame: 1-year ]
  3. Progression-free survival [ Time Frame: 1-year ]
  4. Objective response rate [ Time Frame: 1-year ]
  5. Adverse event [ Time Frame: 1-year ]

Layout table for eligibility information
Ages Eligible for Study:   19 Years and older   (Adult, Older Adult)
Sexes Eligible for Study:   All
Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   No

Inclusion Criteria:

  1. Have the willingness to sign a written informed consent document prior to any study specific procedures
  2. Age ≥ 19 years of male and female
  3. At each phase of the trial, subjects who meet the following requirements in the appropriate phase will be enrolled.

    A. Phase 1b: Subjects with a histologically confirmed metastatic solid tumor that have progressed after treatment with approved therapies or for which there is no standard effective therapy available.

    B. Phase 2b: Subjects with histologically confirmed locally advanced or metastatic gastric cancer that have progressed after treatment with first-line fluoropyrimidine-based chemotherapy, with PTEN loss by immunohistochemistry (IHC), PTEN gene abnormality (PTEN gene deletion or loss of function mutation) or Phosphatidylinositol-4,5-Bisphosphate 3-Kinase Catalytic Subunit Beta(PIK3CB) gene abnormality (amplification or gain of function mutation) identified by next generation sequencing (NGS). If the subject received adjuvant chemotherapy after curative gastric resection and lymph node dissection, adjuvant chemotherapy is considered to be the first-line palliative chemotherapy if the disease recurred during adjuvant chemotherapy or within 6 months after the completion of adjuvant chemotherapy.

  4. Patients must have measurable disease based on RECIST 1.1 (Phase 2 part only). Measurable disease will not be required for enrollment in the phase1b part. Patients with evaluable lesion only (without measurable lesion) can be enrolled in the phase 1b part.
  5. Eastern Cooperative Oncology Group(ECOG) performance status 0-1
  6. Patients must have adequate organ and marrow function as defined below:

    A. Absolute neutrophil count (ANC) ≥ 1.5 x 109/L, B. Hemoglobin ≥ 9.0 g/dL, C. Platelet ≥ 100 x 109/L, D. Aspartate transaminase(AST) and/or alanine transaminase(ALT) ≤ 3 × upper limit of normal (ULN) [Regardless of the presence of liver metastases, only subjects who have AST/ALT ≤ 3 × ULN can be enrolled in phase 1b part; In phase 2 part, subjects with AST and/or ALT ≤ 5 X ULN can be enrolled if they have liver metastases] E. Total bilirubin: ≤ 1 × ULN; Subjects with a bile duct obstruction will be eligible if they meet the criteria after appropriate bile drainage; Patients with Gilbert syndrome should also be registered after confirming that the total bilirubin level is within the normal range through a follow-up screening test F.
