Summary

This is an open-label, prospective phase two basket trial assessing the efficacy of ulixertinib in combination with hydroxychloroquine in patients with advanced gastrointestinal malignancies. All patients enrolled must have a mitogen-activated protein kinase (MAPK) activating mutation to be deemed eligible for trial participation. Each disease-based basket will open to enrollment in two-stages. The opening of stage two will be dependent on the observed responses in the patients enrolled in the first stage.

Description

This is an open-label, multicenter, phase II basket study of ulixertinib in combination with hydroxychloroquine in patients with advanced gastrointestinal malignancies harboring rat sarcoma virus (RAS), a member of the rapidly accelerated fibrosarcoma (non-V600 BRAF), extracellular signal-regulated kinase (ERK), or mitogen-activated protein kinase (MEK) mutations. The trial will have five baskets based on disease primary as listed below.

Basket 1: Cholangiocarcinoma including intrahepatic cholangiocarcinoma, perihilar cholangiocarcinoma, or extrahepatic cholangiocarcinoma;

Basket 2: Pancreatic adenocarcinoma;

Basket 3: Colorectal adenocarcinoma;

Basket 4: Esophageal adenocarcinoma, esophageal squamous cell carcinoma, or gastroesophageal junction (GEJ) adenocarcinoma;

Basket 5: Gastric adenocarcinoma.

While the overall trial is a basket design, each basket will operate as a Simon two-stage design and therefore, will open to enrollment in two-stages.

Total enrollment for Stage 1 is targeted at approximately 65 patients with 13 patients per group. Additional patients may be enrolled as appropriate.

Total enrollment for Stage 2 is targeted to approximately 150 patients with up to 30 patients per group. Additional patients may be enrolled as appropriate.

Females
((140-age) × weight [kg] / serum creatinine [mgdL] × 72)×0.85
For female patients: Negative serum pregnancy test within 72 hours prior to first dose
of study drugs for women of childbearing potential. The following definitions apply

who has had menses anytime in the preceding 12 consecutive months)

tube], social/ psychological issues, etc.)
Prior stomach or duodenal resection that in the opinion of the Principal Investigator
and Medical Monitor would affect the breakdown and absorption of the study
medications. A patient with a feeding tube should also be excluded, as ulixertinib
capsules cannot be broken apart

start of treatment
Note: Patients on effective antiretroviral therapy with an undetectable viral load
within 6 months of the anticipated start of treatment are eligible for this trial

history, physical examination, radiographic findings, and tuberculosis (TB) testing in
line with local practice), hepatitis B (known positive HBV surface antigen (HBsAg)
result), or hepatitis C

hepatitis B core antibody [anti-HBc] and absence of HBsAg) are eligible. Patients
positive for hepatitis C (HCV) antibody are eligible only if polymerase chain reaction
is negative for HCV RNA
Medical, psychiatric, cognitive or other conditions that may compromise the patient's
