Summary

To evaluate the efficacy of romiplostim for the treatment of CIT in patients receiving chemotherapy for the treatment of NSCLC, ovarian cancer, or breast cancer measured by the ability to administer on-time, full-dose chemotherapy

Description

This is a phase 3, randomized, placebo-controlled, multicenter, international study for the treatment of CIT in adult subjects receiving chemotherapy for the treatment of NSCLC, ovarian cancer, or breast cancer. Subjects must have a platelet count ≤ 85 x 10^9/L on day 1 of the study. The study will consist of a screening period of up to 4 weeks, a treatment period long enough to allow for assessment of 3 planned cycles of chemotherapy, a follow-up visit, and long-term follow-up (LTFU). Given that subjects are required to have 3 remaining planned cycles of chemotherapy, the chemotherapy cycles may be 3 or 4 weeks in duration, and the investigational product dose adjustment guidelines allow for up to 12 weeks of dosing before a subject is declared a non-responder, the majority of study subjects will receive investigational product for a range of 10-24 weeks.

Eligibility

Yes No Not Sure

Inclusion Criteria

Subject has provided informed consent prior to initiation of any study-specific activities/procedures or subject's legally acceptable representative has provided informed consent prior to any study-specific activities/procedures being initiated when the subject has any kind of condition that, in the opinion of the investigator, may compromise the ability of the subject to give written informed consent
Males or females greater than or equal to 18 years of age at signing of the informed consent
Documented active stage I, II, III or IV locally advanced or metastatic of the following tumor types: NSCLC, breast cancer, or ovarian cancer (includes fallopian tube epithelial carcinomas and peritoneal epithelial carcinoma of unknown primary), or any stage recurrent disease. Patients with documented locally advanced (stage III) NSCLC should not be amenable to definitive treatment with chemoradiation and/or surgery
Subjects must be receiving cancer treatment with 21- or 28-day cycles, using one of the following carboplatinum-based combination chemotherapy regimens: carboplatin/gemcitabine based, carboplatin/pemetrexed based, carboplatin/liposomal doxorubicin based or carboplatin/taxane based (which includes either paclitaxel, nab-paclitaxel, or docetaxel). Use of combination regimens with one of the above carboplatinum-based regimens is permitted with (1) anti-angiogenic agents (such as bevacizumab); (2) targeted therapy (such as anti-epidermal growth factor agents or anti- human epidermal growth factor receptor 2) or (3) immune checkpoint inhibitors. Cycle duration is based on intervals between day 1 of chemotherapy cycles (overlapping with carboplatin intervals) every 21 or 28 days. OR, Subjects must have CIT from a non-protocol chemotherapy regimen, planning to start treatment with one of the above protocol chemotherapy regimens which has been delayed ≥ 1 week due to CIT
Subjects must have a local platelet count ≤ 85 x 109/L on day 1 of the study
Subjects must be at least 21 or 28 days removed from the start of the chemotherapy cycle immediately prior to study day 1 if receiving a 21-day or 28-day cycle chemotherapy regimen, respectively
Subjects must have at least 3 remaining planned cycles of chemotherapy at study enrollment
Eastern Cooperative Oncology Group (ECOG) performance status of 0, 1, or 2

Exclusion Criteria

Acute lymphoblastic leukemia
Acute myeloid leukemia
Any myeloid malignancy
Myelodysplastic syndrome. Baseline bone marrow biopsy is not required to rule out MDS. However, if a bone marrow biopsy and cytogenetics were performed as part of diagnostic or staging work-up, these results will be collected to confirm
Myeloproliferative disease
Multiple myeloma
Within 4 months prior to enrollment, any history of active congestive heart failure (New York Heart Association [NYHA] Class III to IV), symptomatic ischemia, uncontrolled arrhythmias, clinically significant electrocardiogram (ECG) abnormalities, screening ECG with corrected QT (QTc) interval of greater than 470 msec, pericardial disease, or myocardial infarction
Major surgery less than or equal to 28 days or minor surgery less than or equal to 3 days prior to enrollment
New or uncontrolled venous thromboembolism or thrombotic events within 3 months prior to screening. To be eligible, subjects must have received at least 14 days of anticoagulation for a new thrombotic event and considered to be stable and suitable for continued therapeutic anticoagulation during trial participation
History of arterial thrombotic events (eg, myocardial ischemia, transient ischemic attack, or stroke) within 6 months prior to screening
Evidence of active infection within 2 weeks prior to the first dose of study treatment
Known human immunodeficiency virus infection. Subjects without a documented diagnosis in their medical history will require a local laboratory assessment at screening. If local laboratory results are not available use central laboratory results
Known active of chronic hepatitis C or hepatitis B infection. Subjects without a documented diagnosis in their medical history will require a local laboratory assessment at screening. If local laboratory results are not available use central laboratory results. Hepatitis B and C infection is based on the following results
Positive for hepatitis B surface antigen (HBsAg) (indicative of chronic hepatitis B or recent acute hepatitis B)
Negative HBsAg and positive for hepatitis B core antibody: hepatitis B virus DNA by polymerase chain reaction (PCR) is necessary. Detectable hepatitis B virus DNA suggests occult hepatitis B
Positive hepatitis C virus antibody: hepatitis C virus RNA by PCR is necessary. Detectable hepatitis C virus RNA suggests chronic hepatitis C
In addition to the conditions listed in exclusion criteria 201 through 206, secondary malignancy within the past 5 years except
Adequately treated non-melanoma skin cancer or lentigo maligna without evidence of disease
Adequately treated cervical carcinoma in situ without evidence of disease
Adequately treated breast ductal carcinoma in situ without evidence of disease
Prostatic intraepithelial neoplasia without evidence of prostate cancer
Adequately treated urothelial papillary noninvasive carcinoma or carcinoma in situ
Malignancy treated with curative intent and with no known active disease present for greater than or equal to 3 years before enrollment and felt to be at low risk for recurrence by the treating physician (excluding malignancies listed in exclusion criteria 201 - 206)
Any combined modality regimen containing radiation therapy or surgery occurring concomitantly with neo-adjuvant chemotherapy or where radiation therapy is planned before the 3 planned on-study cycles of chemotherapy

ending treatment on another investigational device or drug study(ies). Other
