Study Details

Study Description

Brief Summary

The study trial is a open-label, single-arm, multicenter phase II trial investigating the combined treatment of atezolizumab and derazantinib in patients with advanced intrahepatic cholangiocarcinoma with FGFR2 fusions/rearrangements

Condition or DiseaseIntervention/TreatmentPhase
Phase 2

Detailed Description

The aim of this phase II study is to explore the safety and anti-tumor efficacy of the combination of atezolizumab and derazantinib in patients with advanced intrahepatic cholangiocarcinoma, with ORR as the primary endpoint.

The primary endpoint is the Objective Response Rate (ORR [assessed every 8 weeks (±7 days)]):

Objective response rate (ORR) according to investigator-based RECIST 1.1 assessment, defined as the proportion of allocated subjects with best response of complete or partial response within 9 months after the date of first administration of study treatment.

The secondary endpoints are safety and efficacy and will be evaluated by

  • Incidence, treatment relationship, seriousness, and severity of all AEs, SAEs, AESIs according to CTCAE V5.0

  • ORR@EOT:

Objective response rate (ORR) according to investigator-based RECIST 1.1 assessment, defined as the proportion of allocated subjects with best response of complete or partial response within study treatment.

• PFSR@6, 8 and 10 months: The proportion of patients known to be alive and without confirmed objective disease progression at 6, 8 and 10 months after first administration of study treatment, respectively.

• PFS: Time from first administration of study treatment until the date of first objective disease progression or death.

• OS: Time from first administration of study treatment until death of a patient due to any cause

    1. Negative HIV test.

    2. Negative pregnancy test within 72 h prior to dosing.

    3. Females of childbearing potential must agree to remain abstinent (refrain from heterosexual intercourse) or use contraceptive methods that result in a failure rate of < 1% per year during the treatment period and for at least 5 months or for a period of at least 5 half-lives of the respective drug/IMP (whichever is longer) after the last study treatment. A woman is considered to be of childbearing potential if she is postmenarcheal, has not reached a postmenopausal state (has not had ≥ 12 continuous months of amenorrhea with no identified cause other than menopause), and has not undergone surgical sterilization (removal of ovaries and/or uterus). Examples of contraceptive methods with a failure rate of < 1% per year include bilateral tubal ligation, male sterilization, hormonal implants, established, proper use of combined oral or injected hormonal contraceptives, and certain intrauterine devices. The reliability of sexual abstinence should be evaluated in relation to the duration of the clinical trial and the preferred and usual lifestyle of the patient. Periodic abstinence (e.g., calendar, ovulation, symptothermal, or postovulation methods) and withdrawal are not acceptable methods of contraception.

    4. With female partners of childbearing potential, men must remain abstinent or use a condom plus an additional contraceptive method that together result in a failure rate of 1% per year from screening to 5 months after the last dose of combination therapy or for a period of at least 5 half-lives of the respective drug/IMP after the last dose of combination therapy (whichever is longer). Men must refrain from donating sperm during this same period. Men with a pregnant partner must agree to remain abstinent or to use a condom for the duration of the pregnancy to avoid exposing the embryo.

    5. The patient is willing and able to comply with the protocol for the duration of the study, including hospital visits for treatment and scheduled follow-up visits and examinations.

    6. Must have a life expectancy of at least 12 weeks. *There are no data that indicate special gender distribution. Therefore, patients will be enrolled in the study gender-independently.

    Exclusion Criteria:
    Patients who meet any of the following criteria will be excluded from study entry:
    1. Mixed cholangiocarcinoma and HCC.

    2. Concurrent enrolment in another clinical study, unless it is an observational (non-interventional) study or a study without a medical intervention (specifically the PLATON registry [ClinicalTrials.gov identifier: NCT04484636] is allowed).

    Note: After the Safety Follow-up (28 days post treatment discontinuation) participation in another clinical study is allowed.

    1. Major surgery (as defined by the Investigator) within 4 weeks prior to enrollment into the study; patients must have recovered from effects of any major surgery.

    Note: Local non-major surgery for palliative intent (e.g. surgery of isolated lesions, per-cutaneous biliary drainage or biliary stenting) is acceptable.

    1. Uncontrolled intercurrent illness, including but not limited to, ongoing or active infection, symptomatic congestive heart failure, uncontrolled hypertension, unstable angina pectoris, cardiac arrhythmia, interstitial lung disease, serious active, uncontrolled, gastrointestinal conditions associated with diarrhea, or psychiatric illness/social situations that would limit compliance with study requirement, substantially increase risk of incurring AEs or compromise the ability of the patient to give written informed consent.

    2. Known allergy or hypersensitivity to any of the IMPs or any of the constituents of the product.

    3. Any co-existing medical condition that in the investigator's judgement will substantially increase the risk associated with the patient's participation in the study.

    4. Active or History of autoimmune disease including, but not limited to, myasthenia gravis, myositis, autoimmune hepatitis, systemic lupus erythematosus, rheumatoid arthritis, inflammatory bowel disease, antiphospholipid antibody syndrome, Wegener's granulomatosis, Sjögren's syndrome, Guillain-Barré syndrome, multiple sclerosis, vasculitis, or glomerulonephritis.

    Note: History of autoimmune-related hypothyroidism on a stable dose of thyroid replacement hormone, or controlled Type 1 diabetes mellitus on a stable insulin regimen may be eligible based on consultation with the sponsor.

    • Patients who received acute, low-dose systemic immunosuppressant medication or a one-time pulse dose of systemic immunosuppressant medication (e.g., 48 hours of corticosteroids for a contrast allergy) are eligible for the study.

    • Patients who received mineralocorticoids (e.g., fludrocortisone), corticosteroids for chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) or asthma, or low-dose corticosteroids for orthostatic hypotension or adrenal insufficiency are eligible for the study.

    1. Administration of a live, attenuated vaccine within four weeks or for a period of at least 5 half-lives of the respective drug/IMP (whichever is longer) prior to start of enrollment, or anticipation that such a live attenuated vaccine will be required during the study or within 5 months after the last dose of atezolizumab.
