Linsitinib in Treating Patients With Gastrointestinal Stromal Tumors

Not Recruiting

Trial ID: NCT01560260


This phase II trial studies how well linsitinib works in treating younger and adult patients with gastrointestinal stromal tumors. Linsitinib may stop the growth of tumor cells by blocking some of the enzymes needed for cell growth.

Inclusion Criteria:

   - Patients must have histologically confirmed gastrointestinal stromal tumor (GIST) with
   confirmed genotype of wild-type in a Clinical Laboratory Improvement Amendments (CLIA)
   certified laboratory

   - Patients will be stratified into pediatric and adult cohorts; patients in the
   pediatric cohort (age at diagnosis =< 18 years OR diagnosis of Carney Triad or
   Carney-Stratakis Diad (paraganglioma, pulmonary chondroma) must have received at least
   sunitinib and have had progression on or intolerance to progression on therapy;
   patients in the adult cohort (age at diagnosis > 18 years AND no diagnosis of
   diagnosis of Carney Triad or Carney-Stratakis Diad) have had progression on or
   intolerance to imatinib therapy as documented by treating physician

   - Performance status: Eastern Cooperative Oncology Group (ECOG) 0-2

   - Patients must have measurable disease defined as lesions that can be measured in 2
   dimensions by medical imaging techniques such as CT or magnetic resonance imaging
   (MRI); ascites, pleural fluid, and lesions seen on PET scan only are not considered

   - White blood cells count (WBC) >= 2.0 x 10^9/L (being >= 14 days off growth factors) OR

   - Absolute neutrophil count (ANC) >= 1.5 x 10^9/L (being >= 14 days off growth factors)

   - Platelet count >= 75 x 10^9/L

   - Total bilirubin =< 1.5 times the upper limit of normal for age

   - Alanine aminotransferase (ALT)/aspartate aminotransferase (AST) (serum glutamate
   pyruvate transaminase [SGPT]/serum glutamic oxaloacetic transaminase [SGOT]) =< 3 x
   the upper limit of normal (ULN) for the reference lab (=< 5 x the ULN for the
   reference lab in the presence of known hepatic metastasis, adjusted for age)

   - Creatinine clearance > 70 ml/min/1.73m^2 or

   - Serum creatinine < 1.5 x ULN per age and gender

   - QT interval corrected using Frederica formula (QTcF) interval average of < 450 msec at
   baseline using the Frederica formula (QTcF)

   - No concomitant drugs that prolong the QT corrected (QTc) interval

   - No significant cardiac disease

   - Fasting blood glucose < 150 mg/dL at baseline

   - Hemoglobin A1C (HbA1c) < 7% at screening

   - Patients or their legal representative must be able to read, understand and provide
   written informed consent to participate in the trial

   - Women of child-bearing potential and men must agree to use adequate contraception
   (hormonal or barrier method of birth control; abstinence) prior to study entry and for
   the duration of study participation; should a woman become pregnant or suspect she is
   pregnant while she or her partner is participating in this study, she should inform
   her treating physician immediately; women of childbearing potential must provide a
   negative pregnancy test (serum or urine) within 7days prior to registration

   - Patients with diabetes mellitus should have controlled disease on oral medications,
   defined as: no diabetic ketoacidosis (hyperglycemia, ketonuria, pH < 7.3 and
   bicarbonate < 15mEq/L) at the time of enrollment or within 30 days prior to enrollment
   and; no change in oral medications greater than 10% within 30 days prior to enrollment

   - Patient must be able to swallow to participate in the study

   - Signed informed consent

Exclusion Criteria:

   - Time elapsed from previous therapy must be >= 3 weeks except for prior tyrosine kinase
   inhibitor therapy which can be >= 7 days; patients must be recovered from the effects
   of any prior surgery, radiotherapy or systemic therapy

   - Patients who are receiving any other investigational agents or other anti-cancer
   therapies other than those administered in this study during protocol treatment

   - Patients with diabetes mellitus requiring insulin for control of their diabetes

   - Patients with a history of liver cirrhosis

   - Patients with known brain metastases should be excluded from this clinical trial

   - History of allergic reactions attributed to compounds of similar chemical or biologic
   composition to linsitinib (OSI-906)

   - While cytochrome P450 1A2 (CYP1A2) inhibitors/inducers are not specifically excluded,
   investigators should be aware that linsitinib (OSI 906) exposure may be altered by the
   concomitant administration of these drugs

   - While cytochrome P450 2C9 (CYP2C9) substrates are not specifically excluded,
   investigators should be aware that levels of drugs metabolized by CYP2C9 may be
   increased by the concomitant administration of linsitinib (OSI-906); caution should be
   used when administering CYP2C9 substrates to patients who are on study drug

   - Use of the potent CYP1A2 inhibitors ciprofloxacin and fluvoxamine are prohibited;
   other less potent CYP1A2 inhibitors/inducers are not excluded

   - Uncontrolled intercurrent illness including, but not limited to, ongoing or active
   infection, symptomatic congestive heart failure, unstable angina pectoris, cardiac
   arrhythmia, or psychiatric illness/social situations that would limit compliance with
   study requirements

   - Prior treatment with another kinase inhibitor targeting insulin-like growth factor 1
   receptor (IGF-1R) pathway, including monoclonal antibodies targeting IGF-1R

   - Pregnant women are excluded from this study; breastfeeding should be discontinued if
   the mother is treated with linsitinib (OSI-906)

   - Fertile men and women of childbearing potential not employing an effective method of
   birth control throughout the trial and for 3 months after last study drug
   administration in both sexes; women of childbearing potential must have a negative
   pregnancy test (serum or urine) within the 7 days prior to study drug administration

      - NOTE: Women of childbearing potential include both pre-menopausal women and women
      within the first 2 years of the onset of menopause

      - NOTE: Effective methods of birth control includes: surgically sterile, barrier
      device (condom, diaphragm), contraceptive coil, abstinence; oral contraceptive
      pills (OCPs) alone are not considered an effective method

   - Known human immunodeficiency virus (HIV)-positive patients on combination
   antiretroviral therapy are ineligible

   - Use of drugs that have a known risk of causing Torsades de Pointes (TdP) are
   prohibited within 14 days prior to initiation of linsitinib (OSI-906)

   - Patients with a history of solid organ transplant are ineligible
