Study of Docetaxel Combined With Cirmtuzumab in Metastatic Castration Resistant Prostate Cancer
The purpose of this study is to examine the safety and efficacy of cirmtuzumab in combination with standard of care docetaxel in patients with metastatic castration resistant prostate cancer. Docetaxel is a taxane chemotherapy which has been shown to prolong survival in men with castration resistant prostate cancer. Cirmtuzumab is a monoclonal antibody that targets the receptor called ROR1 of the non-canonical Wnt pathway and is suspected to contribute to prostate cancer growth and progression.
|Condition or Disease||Intervention/Treatment||Phase|
This study seeks to targeting the non-canonical Wnt pathway with an antibody against ROR1. ROR1 is an attractive target given its low expression in non-malignant tissues and its role in proliferation and survival in prostate cancer. From preclinical data in a variety of tumor types, blockade of ROR1 inhibits cell growth and cirmtuzumab has shown efficacy in clinical trials with CLL. Preclinical data suggests that ROR1 is upregulated in chemotherapy resistant cells and treatment with cirmtuzumab and a taxane achieved higher cytotoxic response than both agents alone, supporting the use of the combination of cirmtuzumab and a taxane. Based on the biological rationale behind cirmtuzumab and preclinical activity with docetaxel, this is an open label, phase 2 clinical trial to evaluate the safety and efficacy of cirmtuzumab in combination with docetaxel for the treatment of metastatic, castrate resistant prostate adenocarcinoma.
Arms and Interventions
|Experimental: Cirmtuzumab + Docetaxel
There is only one treatment arm on this study. The combination of cirmtuzumab + docetaxel will be administered on one treatment arm. Treatment will cirmtuzumab will be administered initially as a loading dose alone on days 1, 15, and 29 of cycle 1. Following the loading, cirmtuzumab will be given on Day 1 of every 21-day cycle starting on Cycle 2 to up to Cycle 7 corresponding with concurrent docetaxel administration. Following discontinuation or completion of docetaxel, treatment with cirmtuzumab will be continued Day 1 of every 28 cycle until disease progression, toxicity or study withdrawal. Docetaxel will be administered on day 1 of every 21-day cycle starting Cycle 2 for up to 6 cycles.
Cirmtuzumab will be given in combination with docetaxel.
