Status: Recruiting
Phase: Phase 2
Diagnosis: Breast: Metastatic
NCT ID: NCT01525589 (View complete trial on ClinicalTrials.gov)
DFCI Protocol ID: 12-274


A Clinical Trial of PM01183 in Metastatic Breast Cancer to assess the antitumor activity of PM01183 ,to evaluate whether the presence of a known germline mutation in BRCA 1/2 predicts response to PM01183 in Metastatic Breast Cancer (MBC) patients, to evaluate the safety profile of this PM01183 to analyze the pharmacokinetics (PK) and PK/PD (pharmacokinetic/pharmacodynamic) correlations and to evaluate the pharmacogenomic (PGx) expression profile in tumor samples.

Mild ongoing toxicity is allowed in case of alopecia, skin toxicity, fatigue and/or finger numbness or tumbling. - Patients of child-bearing potential must agree to use a medically approved contraception method until at least six weeks after the last study drug administration. Inclusion criteria - Specifically to be included in Cohort A (otherwise patients might be included in Cohort B): Known deleterious germline mutation of BRCA1/2 (hereditary breast cancer). Exclusion Criteria: - Prior treatment with PM01183 or trabectedin. - Extensive prior RT. - Prior or concurrent malignant disease unless cured for more than five years. - Exceptions are breast cancer in the other breast. - Uncommon or rare subtypes of breast cancer. - Symptomatic or progressive brain metastases. - Bone-limited and exclusively metastases. - Relevant diseases or clinical situations which may increase patient's risk: History of cardiac disease. Moderate breathing difficulties or oxygen requirement Active uncontrolled infection. Unhealed wound or presence of any external drainage. Chronically active viral hepatitis. Immunocompromised patients, including those known to be infected by human immunodeficiency virus (HIV). Known muscular disease or functional alteration - Pregnant or breastfeeding women. - Impending need for immediate RT for symptomatic relief. - Limitation of the patient's ability to comply with the treatment or to follow-up the protocol.
