Phase Ib trial to evaluate safety and anti-tumor activity of the AKT inhibitor, ipatasertib, in combination with endocrine therapy and a CDK4/6 inhibitor for patients with hormone receptor positive (HR+)/HER2 negative metastatic breast cancer (MBC) (TAKTIC).


Abstract No : 1066

Abstract Type : Poster Session (Board #151)

Indication : Her2-Negative Breast Cancer

Intervention : patasertib + endocrine therapy + a CDK4/6 inhibitor

Company : Genentech

Technology : AKT inhibitor


Results:

As of 1/31/ 2020, 25 pts have enrolled, including 12 on Arm C, all of whom received prior CDK4/6i (median no of prior lines = 5.5, range 2-7). Along with fulvestrant, 3 pts received ipat at 200mg + 125mg palbo, 7 pts received 300mg + 125mg palbo, and 2 pts received 400mg + 100mg palbo. To date, 8/12 pts remain on treatment including 2 with partial response, 3 with stable disease, 3 with restaging studies pending and 4 with progressive disease. The triplet combination was well tolerated. Grade 3 toxicities included reduced WBC (8/12), reduced neutrophil count (11/12), reduced lymphocyte count (2/12) and single instances of transaminitis, rash, and reduced platelet count. The only grade 4 toxicity was reduced neutrophil count (4/12). There were no DLTs observed and no discontinuations due to toxicity. Mean steady state pharmacokinetic parameters for ipat were similar to historical data from single agent trials suggesting that combined treatment with palbo + fulvestrant did not affect the pharmacokinetics of ipat. Updated analysis will be presented at the meeting


Conclusion:

The triplet combination of endocrine therapy with CDK 4/6i and AKTi appears to be well tolerated in heavily pre-treated pts, with a subset demonstrating signs of clinical benefit. The trial demonstrates how insights into the molecular mechanisms of CDK4/6i resistance could be leveraged into actionable therapeutic regimens for HR+/ HER2- MBC.


Commentary:

Safety is good but still its too early in the development, Since it is novel class, can emerge as a potential treatment option for HER2- Breast cancer patients.
