A Phase 1 Study of SY-1365, a Selective CDK7 Inhibitor, in Adult Patients With Advanced Solid Tumors
This study consists of two parts. Part 1 is a dose-escalation/safety evaluation to provisionally identify a dose and regimen of SY-1365 for further evaluation in Part 2. Following the identification of a recommended dose and regimen from Part 1, the study entered Part 2 to further evaluate safety and the antitumor activity of SY-1365 in patients with select solid tumors, and to confirm target engagement and downstream pathway impact in patients with any solid tumor histology.
Following the identification of a recommended dose and regimen from Part 1, the study entered Part 2 to further evaluate safety and the antitumor activity of SY-1365 in patients with select solid tumors, and to confirm target engagement and downstream pathway impact in patients with any solid tumor histology.
Preliminary anti-tumor activity will be evaluated in up to approximately 102 evaluable patients in Part 2, with SY-1365 administered alone, in combination with carboplatin, or in combination with fulvestrant. Part 2 will consist of five cohorts:
- Cohort 1: approximately 24 patients with advanced ovarian cancer with 3+ previous lines of treatment. Monotherapy
- Cohort 2: approximately 24 patients with relapsed ovarian cancer with previous platinum therapy. SY-1365 + Carboplatin
- Cohort 3: approximately 12 patients with clear cell ovarian cancer. Monotherapy
- Cohort 4: approximately 20-30 patients with biopsy-accessible, advanced solid tumors of any histology. Monotherapy.
- Cohort 5: approximately 12 patients with HR+ metastatic breast cancer post CDK4/6 + hormonal therapy treatment. SY-1365 + fulvestrant.
Overall, the study may enroll up to approximately 137 evaluable patients across dose escalation (Part 1) and expansion cohorts (Part 2, Cohorts 1, 2, 3, 4, and 5).
18 Years and up
Accepting Healthy Volunteers?
- 18 years of age or older
- Disease status
- Part 1: any histologically-confirmed metastatic or unresectable solid tumor for which standard curative or palliative measures do not exist or are no longer effective
- Part 2, Cohorts 1 and 2, all patients must have a histologically-confirmed diagnosis of high grade serous ovarian cancer (including fallopian tube cancer and/or primary peritoneal cancer)
- Part 2, Cohort 1, patients must have received ≥ 3 prior treatment regimens for ovarian cancer including a platinum-based regimen. Patients whose ovarian cancer harbors a mutation in breast cancer gene (BRCA), either germline or somatic, must have been previously treated with a poly(ADP ribose) polymerase (PARP) inhibitor, or be considered unwilling or ineligible for treatment with a PARP inhibitor
- Part 2, Cohort 2, patients must have received ≥ 1 prior treatment regimen for ovarian cancer, at least 1 of which is a platinum-based regimen
- Part 2,Cohort 3, all patients must have a histologically-confirmed diagnosis of clear cell ovarian cancer and must have received ≥ 1 prior treatment regimen for clear cell ovarian cancer, at least 1 of which is a platinum-based regimen.
- Part 2, Cohort 4, any histologically-confirmed metastatic or unresectable solid tumor for which standard curative or palliative measures do not exist or are no longer effective. Must have accessible tumor tissue and be willing to undergo tumor tissue sampling (biopsies/aspirates) pre-, during, and post-treatment
- Part 2, Cohort 5, postmenopausal women with hormone receptor (HR)-positive, human epidermal growth factor receptor 2 (HER2)-negative advanced or metastatic breast cancer who have failed prior treatment with a CDK 4/6 inhibitor in combination with a hormonal therapy (i.e. aromatase inhibitors, fulvestrant). Treatment failure is based on development of clinical or documented progression during treatment with a CDK4/6 inhibitor in combination with hormonal therapy after ≥ 6 months of therapy. Progression following discontinuation of CDK4/6 treatment due to safety and/or tolerability is not considered as treatment failure for purposes of inclusion criteria. Documentation of HR-positive and HER2-negative status must be available.
