Phase 2 Study of Tucatinib vs Placebo in Combination With Capecitabine & Trastuzumab in Patients With Advanced HER2+ Breast Cancer


Brief description of study

To assess the effect of tucatinib vs. placebo in combination with capecitabine and trastuzumab on progression-free survival (PFS) per RECIST 1.1 based on independent central radiology review.

Detailed Study Description

A randomized, international, multi-center, double-blinded study in patients with progressive unresectable locally advanced or metastatic HER2+ breast cancer who have had prior treatment with trastuzumab, pertuzumab and T-DM1. Patients will be randomized in a 2:1 ratio to receive tucatinib or placebo in combination with capecitabine and trastuzumab.

Stratification factors include presence or history of treated or untreated brain metastases (yes/no), Eastern Cooperative Oncology Group Performance Status (ECOG PS) (0 vs. 1), and region of world (US vs Canada vs Rest of World).

No crossover from placebo to tucatinib will be allowed.

Safety assessments will be performed at a minimum of once every three weeks throughout study treatment and 30 days after the last dose of study drugs. Laboratory assessments will be performed locally at sites. Left ventricular ejection fraction will be assessed by MUGA or ECHO at screening and once every 12 weeks thereafter.

Contrast brain MRI will be performed at baseline in all patients. Efficacy assessments (CT of chest, abdomen and pelvis at a minimum) utilize RECIST 1.1 and include patients with evaluable tumors defined as measurable target lesions and non-measurable non-target lesions. RECIST assessment is performed at baseline, every 6 weeks for the first 24 weeks, and then every 9 weeks thereafter. Repeat MRI of the brain will be required on this same schedule only in those patients with brain metastases identified at baseline. All treatment decisions are made based upon investigator assessment. All patients undergo a repeat MRI of the brain within 30 days of the end of treatment unless previously performed at time of disease progression. Patients in both arms of the study will be followed for OS after completion of study treatment.
