A Study of Sapanisertib, Combination of Sapanisertib With MLN1117, Paclitaxel and Combination of Sapanisertib With Paclitaxel in Women With Endometrial Cancer

The purpose of this Phase 2, open-label study is to test the safety and efficacy of two investigational agents, MLN0128 and MLN1117, in adult women with advanced endometrial cancer. Efficacy will be compared to the standard treatment, paclitaxel. Patients will be enrolled into one of four treatment arms: paclitaxel alone, paclitaxel with MLN0128, MLN0128 alone, and a combination of MLN0128+ MLN1117. The primary focus will be whether any treatment extends progression free survival over paclitaxel alone.

Stanford is currently not accepting patients for this trial.

Phase 2


Inclusion Criteria:

   1. Histologic or cytologic diagnosis of endometrial carcinoma (including endometrioid,
   serous, mixed adenocarcinoma, clear-cell carcinoma, or carcinosarcoma).

   2. Evidence that the endometrial cancer is advanced, recurrent, or persistent and has
   relapsed or is refractory to curative therapy or established treatments.

   3. At least 1 prior platinum-based chemotherapeutic regimen, but not more than 2 prior
   chemotherapeutic regimens, for management of endometrial carcinoma. Prior treatment
   may include chemotherapy, chemotherapy/radiation therapy, and/or
   consolidation/maintenance therapy. Chemotherapy administered in conjunction with
   primary radiation as a radio-sensitized therapy will be considered a systemic
   chemotherapy regimen.

   4. Measurable disease by Response Evaluation Criteria in Solid Tumors (RECIST) 1.1,
   defined as at least 1 lesion that can be accurately measured in at least 1 dimension
   (longest diameter to be recorded). Each lesion must be greater than or equal to (>=)
   10 millimeter (mm) in long axis when measured by computed tomography (CT), magnetic
   resonance imaging (MRI), or caliper measurement by clinical exam. Lymph nodes must be
   >= 15 mm in short axis when measured by CT or MRI.

   5. Tumor accessible and participant consents to undergo fresh tumor biopsies.

   6. Female participants 18 years or older.

   7. Eastern Cooperative Oncology Group (ECOG) performance status of 0 to 2

   8. Female participants who:

      - Are postmenopausal for at least 1 year before the screening visit, OR

      - Are surgically sterile, OR

      - If they are of childbearing potential, agree to practice 1 highly effective
      method of contraception and 1 additional effective (barrier) method at the same
      time, from the time of signing the informed consent through 90 days (or longer,
      as mandated by local labeling [example, United States Prescribing Information
      (USPI), Summary of Product Characteristics (SmPC), etc.]) after the last dose of
      study drug, OR

      - Agree to practice true abstinence, when this is in line with the preferred and
      usual lifestyle of the participant. (Periodic abstinence [example, calendar,
      ovulation, symptothermal, postovulation methods], withdrawal, spermicides only,
      and lactational amenorrhea are not acceptable methods of contraception. Female
      and male condoms should not be used together.)

   9. Clinical laboratory values as specified below within 4 weeks before the first dose of
   study drug:

      - Bone marrow reserve consistent with absolute neutrophil count (ANC) >= 1500 per
      micro liter (/mcL); platelet count >= 100,000/mcL; hemoglobin A1c (HbA1c) less
      than (<) 6.5 percent (%).

      - Total bilirubin must be less than or equal to (<=) 1.5 * the upper limit of
      normal (ULN).

      - Alanine aminotransferase (ALT) or aspartate aminotransferase (AST) must be <= 2.5
      * the upper limit of the normal range. AST and ALT may be elevated up to 5 times
      the ULN if their elevation can be reasonably ascribed to the presence of
      metastatic disease in liver.

      - Creatinine clearance >= 50 milliliter per minute per 1.73 square meter
      (mL/min/1.73 m^2) based either on Cockcroft-Gault estimate or based on a 12- or
      24-hour urine collection.

      - Fasting serum glucose < 130 milligram per deciliter (mg/dL) and fasting
      triglycerides <= 300 mg/dL.

10. Ability to swallow oral medications, willingness to perform mucositis prophylaxis, and
   suitable venous access for the study-required blood sampling.

11. Voluntary written consent must be given before performance of any study-related
   procedure not part of standard medical care, with the understanding that consent may
   be withdrawn by the participant at any time without prejudice to future medical care.

Exclusion Criteria:

   1. Positive serum pregnancy test during the screening period or a positive urine
   pregnancy test on Day 1 before first dose of study drug. Women who are lactating and
   breastfeeding are not eligible.

   2. Previous treatment with any weekly taxane regimen.

   3. History of severe hypersensitivity reactions to paclitaxel or any of its excipients.
