Tucidinostat and Fulvestrant in Hormone-receptor Positive Advanced Breast Cancer
The purpose of the study is evaluate the efficacy and safety of tucidinostat in combination with fulvestrant in patients with hormone-receptor positive advanced breast cancer.
|Condition or Disease||Intervention/Treatment||Phase|
Hormone-receptor positive breast cancer is the most common subtype in breast cancer. Tucidinostat is an oral subtype-selective histone deacetylase inhibitor, which showed preliminary signs of encouraging anti-tumour activity in patients with advanced hormone-receptor positive breast cancer in the previous studies. The aim of this study is to evaluate the efficacy and safety of Tucidinostat in combination with fulvestrant in patients with recurrent or metastatic hormone-receptor positive breast cancer.
Arms and Interventions
|Experimental: Tucidinostat + Fulvestrant
Patients receive 30 mg Chidamide twice per week. Fulvestrant 500mg (2 syringes of Fulvestrant 250mg), Fulvestrant 500 mg i.m. every 28 (+/- 3) days plus an additional 500 mg on day 14 (+/-3) of first month only. Courses repeat every 4 weeks in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity.
30 mg, administered orally twice per week (BIW)
Fulvestrant was supplied as a castor oil based solution in clear neutral glass pre-filled syringes. Each syringe will contain 250 mg of fulvestrant in 5 ml.
Primary Outcome Measures
- Progression Free Survival (PFS) [From date of treatment until the date of first documented progression or date of death from any cause, whichever came first, assessed up to 3 years.]
PFS was defined as the time from treatment until objective disease progression according to Response Evaluation Criteria in Solid Tumours version 1.1 (RECIST 1.1), or death by any cause, whichever is first met.
Secondary Outcome Measures
- overall survival (OS) [Time from treatment to death from any cause, assessed up to 3 years.]
Defined as from the date of treatment to date of death, irrespective of cause.
- Objectivel response rate (ORR) [Response is assessed once every 8 weeks, from the day of treatment to the date of first documented progression, assessed up to 3 years.]
Defined as numbers of patients achieved complete response and partial response of treatment.
- Duration of response (DOR) [From the day of treatment to the date of first documented progression, assessed up to 3 years.]
Defined as from the first date when criteria for response is met until the first date when the criteria for progression or death is met.
- 4.Clinical Benefit Rate (CBR) [From the day of treatment to the date of first documented progression, assessed up to 3 years.]
ORR is defined as percentage of participants with Complete Response, Partial Response or Stable Disease≥24 weeks, assessed by the investigators according to the RECIST v1.1.
- Adverse event(AE) [From the day of treatment to the date of first documented progression, assessed up to 3 years.]
