Résumé :

The prognosis of patients with locally advanced/metastatic uterine (endometrial or cervical) cancer progressing/relapsing after at least one prior systemic treatment remains poor. The development of new innovative anti-tumor drug candidates as single agent or in combination with chemotherapy or check point inhibitors is needed.

NP137 is a first-in-class humanized monoclonal antibody targeting specifically and selectively Netrin-1. By blocking Netrin-1, NP137 is capable of restoring apoptosis in tumor cells in vitro and in vivo, leading to therapeutic activity in various animal cancer models.

Dependence receptors inhibitor such as NP137 might be a novel choice to improve the clinical outcomes of these patients.

The herein proposed study will be a multicenter, open-label, randomized, Phase I/II trial with:

A safety run in part to assess the safety of the therapeutic combinations for the first 6 patients enrolled in each of the therapeutic combinations independently of the tumor type. According to safety rules, these therapeutic combinations will be investigated or not in the Phase II part.

A Phase II part will be then conducted using an adaptive Bayesian approach allowing to quickly stop treatment cohorts without evidence of efficacy and/or select promising treatment cohorts. The Phase II part will be initiated with a preliminary step to assess the clinical activity of the proposed therapeutic combinations in 2 tumor types before proceeding to the activation of extension phase II part of the study. For each cohorts, clinical activity will be assessed through by sequential statistical analysis at specific timepoints.

Critères de population

Sexe : Femme
Age minimum : 18 ans
Critères d’inclusion :
  • Be women ≥ 18 years at time of inform consent signature.
  • Patient with histologically confirmed locally advanced / metastatic endometrial carcinoma (Endometrial sarcoma are excluded) or patient with histologically confirmed locally advanced / metastatic cervix adeno- or epidermoid- carcinoma.
  • Previously treated by at least one line of platinum based chemotherapy, but no more than 3 lines of chemotherapies whatever the nature. If the previous based platinum chemotherapy was given as neoadjuvant or adjuvant chemotherapy for a local disease (stage I or II), inclusion must be performed no more than one year after the end of this chemotherapy, except if an advanced or metastatic relapse has been documented and treated by a systemic anti-cancer agent during this time interval.

In all cases, a minimal wash-out period of 6 months after completion of last chemotherapy with [platinum + paclitaxel] is required prior to entering the study.

Platinum chemotherapy concomitant to RT can not be considered as a line of previous platinum based chemotherapy.

  • For endometrium carcinoma: mutational profile (MSI/MSS status) available before randomization (see St Paul de Vence 2019- ARCAGY - GINECO Group recommendation).
  • Documented disease progression as per RECIST V1.1 after prior systemic chemotherapy regimen and presence of at least one lesion evaluable for response according to RECIST 1.1.
  • Have provided a representative archival tumor sample in formalin-fixed paraffin embedded (FFPE) block (primary tumor or metastasis) or newly obtained core or excisional biopsy of a tumor lesion together with an associated pathology report.

Note: If submitting unstained cut slides, newly cut slides should be submitted to the testing laboratory within 14 days from the date slides are cut (details pertaining to tumor tissue submission can be found in the laboratory manual).

- Optional for patients having consented to tumor biopsies: presence of at least one tumor lesion visible by medical imaging and accessible to repeatable percutaneous sampling that permits core needle biopsy without unacceptable risk of a significant procedural complications, and suitable for retrieval of 4 cores using a 16-gauge diameter needle or larger.

Note: lesions to be biopsied should not be selected as RECIST target lesions. Bone lesions are not adequate lesions for biopsies and lymph nodes lesions should not be considered as prime targets.

  • Life expectancy ≥ 3 months.
  • Eastern Cooperative Oncology GrougGroup performance status (ECOG PS) of 0 to 1.
  • Demonstrate adequate cardiovascular function:

    • QTcF < 470ms
    • Resting BP systolic <160mmHg and diastolic < 100mmHg
    • LVEF > 50% as determined by transthoracic echocardiogram.
  • Demonstrate adequate organ function as defined in protocol, all screening laboratory tests should be performed within 7 days prior C1D1:
  • Women of child-bearing potential must have a negative urine pregnancy test at screening (within 72 hours prior C1D1) and must agree to use 2 effective forms of contraception from the time of the treatment period and of the negative pregnancy test up 6 months after the end of their treatment.
  • Patient should understand, sign, and date the written voluntary informed consent form prior to any protocol-specific procedures.
  • Patient should be able and willing to comply with study visits and procedures as per protocol.
Critères d’exclusion :
  • Patients with progression during previous chemotherapy with [platinum +paclitaxel]
