Summary

This phase II MATCH trial studies how well treatment that is directed by genetic testing works in patients with solid tumors or lymphomas that have progressed following at least one line of standard treatment or for which no agreed upon treatment approach exists. Genetic tests look at the unique genetic material (genes) of patients' tumor cells. Patients with genetic abnormalities (such as mutations, amplifications, or translocations) may benefit more from treatment which targets their tumor's particular genetic abnormality. Identifying these genetic abnormalities first may help doctors plan better treatment for patients with solid tumors, lymphomas, or multiple myeloma.

Description

PRIMARY OBJECTIVE:

I. To evaluate the proportion of patients with objective response (OR) to targeted study agent(s) in patients with advanced refractory cancers/lymphomas/multiple myeloma.

SECONDARY OBJECTIVES:

I. To evaluate the proportion of patients alive and progression free at 6 months of treatment with targeted study agent in patients with advanced refractory cancers/lymphomas/multiple myeloma.

II. To evaluate time until death or disease progression. III. To identify potential predictive biomarkers beyond the genomic alteration by which treatment is assigned or resistance mechanisms using additional genomic, ribonucleic acid (RNA), protein and imaging-based assessment platforms.

IV. To assess whether radiomic phenotypes obtained from pre-treatment imaging and changes from pre- through post-therapy imaging can predict objective response and progression free survival and to evaluate the association between pre-treatment radiomic phenotypes and targeted gene mutation patterns of tumor biopsy specimens.

OUTLINE

STEP 0 (Screening): Patients undergo biopsy along with molecular characterization of the biopsy material for specific, pre-defined mutations, amplifications, or translocations of interest via tumor sequencing and immunohistochemistry. Consenting patients also undergo collection of blood samples for research purposes.

STEPS 1, 3, 5, 7 (Treatment): Patients are assigned to 1 of 38 treatment subprotocols based on molecularly-defined subgroup. (See Arms Section)

STEPS 2, 4, 6 (Screening): Patients experiencing disease progression on the prior Step treatment or who could not tolerate the assigned treatment undergo review of their previous biopsy results to determine if another treatment is available or undergo another biopsy. Patients may have a maximum of 2 screening biopsies and 2 treatments per biopsy.

STEP 8 (Optional Research): Consenting patients undergo end-of-treatment biopsy and collection of blood samples for research purposes.

After completion of study treatment, patients are followed up every 3 months for 2 years and then every 6 months for 1 year.

Patients must have progressed following at least one line of standard systemic therapy and there must not be other approval/standard therapy available that has been shown to prolong overall survival (i.e. in a randomized trial against another standard treatment or by comparison to historical controls); patients who cannot receive other standard therapy that has been shown to prolong overall survival due to medical issues will be eligible, if other eligibility criteria are met; if the patient is currently receiving therapy, the clinician must have assessed that the current therapy is no longer benefitting the patient prior to enrolling on MATCH, regardless of whether it is considered standard OR
effective method(s) of contraception or by abstaining from sexual intercourse
Patients for whose disease no standard treatment exists that has been shown to prolong overall survival
prior to study entry, for the duration of study participation, and for 4
NOTE: No other prior malignancy is allowed except for the following
months after completion of study; should a patient or partner of the patient
Adequately treated basal cell or squamous cell skin cancer
become pregnant or suspect a pregnancy while participating in this study, the
In situ cervical cancer
treating physician should be informed immediately

Any other cancer from which the patient has been disease-free for 5 years
Patients must have measurable disease
Patients must meet the criteria below
Tumor tissue for the confirmation of "rare variant" by the MATCH assay is to be submitted, preferably from the same time of collection as that used to determine patient candidacy for treatment arm assignment
Registration to Step 0 must occur after stopping prior systemic anti-cancer therapy. There is no specific duration for which patients must be off treatment prior to registration to Step 0, as long as all eligibility criteria are met
Patients may have received other non-targeted, immunotherapy or targeted treatment between the prior genetic testing at the outside lab and registration to Step 0. The decision to stop such treatment in favor of participation in MATCH, if no further clinical benefit is expected, is per the treating physician's discretion. Documentation of a lack of response to the prior treatment is not required in these cases
Patients with an applicable "rare variant" must be able to meet the eligibility criteria for the appropriate subprotocols within 4 weeks following notification of treatment assignment
Patient meets one of the following criteria
Patient is a candidate for Z1M based on local CLIA assessment of MMRd by immunohistochemistry (IHC) or MSI status by polymerase chain reaction (PCR), adequate tumor tissue is available for submission for mandatory central screening IHC and the patient will be able to meet the eligibility criteria for Z1M within 4 weeks following notification of treatment assignment OR
The sites have received results from one of the designated outside laboratories indicating a "rare variant" that is an actionable Mutation of Interest (aMOI) for specific select subprotocols
NOTE: Other potential aMOIs that would be eligibility criteria for "NON RARE" arms, as determined by the designated laboratories, are not applicable for this process in MATCH
NOTE: Treatment assignment (and the start of the associated deadline for Step 1 registration) may occur shortly after Step 0 registration. Note that certain "rare variant" arms require submission of archival tissue for central IHC testing to determine treatment assignment. For those arms, adequate tissue for the central IHC is required to be available for submission
Patients must be able to swallow tablets or capsules; a patient with any gastrointestinal disease that would impair ability to swallow, retain, or absorb drug is not eligible
Patients who are human immunodeficiency virus (HIV)-positive are eligible if
CD4+ cell count greater or equal to 250 cells/mm^3
NOTE: There is no particular window of time after receiving the sequencing report
If patient is on antiretroviral therapy, there must be minimal interactions or overlapping toxicity of the antiretroviral therapy with the experimental cancer treatment; for experimental cancer therapeutics with CYP3A/4 interactions, protease inhibitor therapy is disallowed; suggested regimens to replace protease inhibitor therapy include dolutegravir given with tenofovir/emtricitabine; raltegravir given with tenofovir and emtricitabine; once daily combinations that use pharmacologic boosters may not be used
notification of potential eligibility from an outside lab in which the patient
No history of non-malignancy acquired immune deficiency syndrome (AIDS)-defining conditions other than historical low CD4+ cell counts
must be registered to Step 0, but treatment slots will be assigned on a first
Probable long-term survival with HIV if cancer were not present
come, first serve basis to those who do register to Step 0, and are not held
for those notified of potential eligibility who do not register to Step 0
NOTE: Prostate cancer patients may continue their luteinizing hormone-releasing hormone (LHRH) agonist
NOTE: For patients entering the study via the original screening process, patients may receive non-protocol treatment after biopsy (if clinically indicated) until they receive notification of results; however, lack of response must be documented prior to registration to Step 1; new non-protocol treatment will NOT be permitted as intervening therapy after registration to Step 0; the only intervening treatment permitted is prior therapy that the patient already received prior to Step 0 registration; the decision to stop the intervening non-protocol treatment will be left up to the treating physician if patient has an aMOI; however, patients will need to be off such therapy for at least 4 weeks before receiving any MATCH protocol treatment
NOTE: For patients entering the study via a designated outside laboratory, no intervening systemic non-protocol treatment is permitted after Step 0 registration; all other eligibility requirements still apply to these patients, including the washouts for prior therapy noted above in this section, the time restrictions outlined, and the eligibility criteria for the intended subprotocol
Patients must have Eastern Cooperative Oncology Group (ECOG) performance status =< 1
and a life expectancy of at least 3 months
Patients must have discontinued steroids >= 1 week prior to registration to Step 0 and remain off steroids thereafter, except as permitted; patients with glioblastoma (GBM) must have been on stable dose of steroids, or be off steroids, for one week prior to registration to treatment (Step 1, 3, 5, 7)
NOTE: The following steroids are permitted (low dose steroid use is defined as prednisone 10 mg daily or less, or bioequivalent dose of other corticosteroid)

or better (except alopecia and lymphopenia) by start of treatment
NOTE: Steroids must be completed alongside last dose of chemotherapy
palliative radiation therapy must have been completed at least 2 weeks prior
to start of treatment; the radiotherapy must not be to a lesion that is
included as measurable disease
Platelets >= 100,000/mcL (within 2 weeks prior to screening step registration and within 4 weeks prior to treatment step registration)
Absolute neutrophil count (ANC) >= 1,500/mcL (within 2 weeks prior to screening step registration and within 4 weeks prior to treatment step registration)
NOTE: Patients with documented bone marrow involvement by lymphoma are not required to meet the above hematologic parameters, but must have a platelet count of at least 75,000/mcL and neutrophil count of at least 1,000/mcL
Total bilirubin =< 1.5 x institutional upper limit of normal (ULN) (unless documented Gilbert's syndrome, for which bilirubin =< 3 x institutional ULN is permitted) (within 2 weeks prior to screening step registration and within 4 weeks prior to treatment step registration)
Aspartate aminotransferase (AST) (serum glutamic oxaloacetic transaminase [SGOT])/alanine aminotransferase (ALT) (serum glutamate pyruvate transaminase [SGPT]) =< 2.5 x institutional ULN (up to 5 times ULN in presence of liver metastases) (within 2 weeks prior to screening step registration and within 4 weeks prior to treatment step registration)
Patients with brain metastases or primary brain tumors must have completed treatment

Creatinine clearance >= 45 mL/min/1.73 m^2 for patients with creatinine levels above institutional ULN
Resting corrected QT interval (QTc) =< 480 msec
NOTE: If the first recorded QTc exceeds 480 msec, two additional, consecutive ECGs are required and must result in a mean resting QTc =< 480 msec; it is recommended that there are 10-minute (+/- 5 minutes) breaks between the ECGs
The following only need to be assessed if the mean QTc > 480 msec
Check potassium and magnesium serum levels
Correct any identified hypokalemia and/or hypomagnesemia and may repeat ECG to confirm exclusion of patient due to QTc
For patients with heart rate (HR) 60-100 beats per minute (bpm), no manual read of QTc is required
For patients with baseline HR < 60 or > 100 bpm, manual read of QT by trained personnel is required, with Fridericia correction applied to determine QTc
Patient must not have hypokalemia (value < institutional lower limit of normal)
NOTE: Patient must be taken off prohibited medication prior to registration to the screening step (Step 0, 2, 4, 6) and remain off these medications thereafter, unless permitted on a subprotocol for the management of treatment related toxicity; patient must be off the drug for at least 5 half-lives prior to registration to the treatment step (Step 1, 3, 5, 7); the medication half-life can be found in the package insert for Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved drugs

ELIGIBILITY CRITERIA FOR FIRST TREATMENT (STEP 1)
within 4 weeks prior to treatment step registration)
NOTE: For patients entering step 0 with assay results from outside laboratories, no systemic treatment is allowed after step 0 registration
As MATCH is designed to add additional subprotocols, implement limited expansions of accrual for certain subprotocols, and/or amend existing arm-specific eligibility criteria, some patients entering under the original screening method may be eligible to have their results rerun in MATCHbox, even if they did not match to a treatment initially or did not receive a treatment assignment due to a lack of available assignment slots; patients whose sequence results will be rerun through MATCHbox must also meet the following criteria
Samples must have been collected within 5 months of the activation of the addendum, as there is an additional month needed to get the patients on trial
Patient has not had treatment within the 5 months that resulted in a PR or better after the performance of the screening assessment
Patient must meet eligibility criteria, including performance status 1 or better and life expectancy of at least 3 months
Patients must meet the eligibility requirements with the following exceptions
Patients may have received other non-targeted, immunotherapy or targeted treatment, which could be stopped in favor of returning to MATCH, if no response to the interim treatment has occurred and no further benefit is expected from this interim treatment, per the treating physician's discretion; documentation of a lack of response to the interim treatment is not required in these cases; however, the following restrictions apply
Enrollment onto another investigational therapeutic study is not permitted
Patients must have an electrocardiogram (ECG) within 8 weeks prior to registration to
screening step and must meet the following cardiac criteria
Patient cannot be responding to interim treatment, since the benefit of the MATCH treatment is unknown and may deprive patient of an effective treatment if it were given when a patient is responding to another treatment
ELIGIBILITY CRITERIA FOR SECOND SCREENING (STEP 2)
Patient's disease
No factors that increase the risk of QTc prolongation or risk of arrhythmic
events such as heart failure, congenital long QT syndrome, family history of
long QT syndrome or unexplained sudden death under 40 years of age or any
concomitant medication known to prolong the QT interval
NOTE: Patients meeting these criteria will NOT be biopsied at this time point
instead, their step 0 results will be re-interrogated to determine if another
treatment is available
