A Phase II, Open-label, study in subjects with BRAF V600E-mutated rare cancers with several histologies to investigate the clinical efficacy and safety of the combination therapy of Dabrafenib and Trametinib
The goal of the pre-screening part of this clinical research study is to learn if your tumor tissue has the specific mutation BRAF V600E. Researchers believe that this mutation may be responsible for the growth of cancer cells. If you tumor has this specific mutation, the combination of dabrafenib and trametinib, may help control the disease. Nine (9) different rare cancers have been identified as being possible candidates for the treatment offered in the research study. These cancers are: Anaplastic Thyroid Cancer (ATC) Biliary Tract Cancer (BTC) Gastrointestinal Stromal Tumor (GIST) WHO Grade 1 and Grade 2 Cerebral Glioma WHO Grade 3 and Grade 4 Cerebral Glioma Germ Cell Tumor (GCT) Adenocarcinoma of the Small Intestine (ASI) Hairy Cell Leukemia (HCL) Multiple Myeloma (MM)
Disease Group: Biliary Tract ,Brain,Gastrointestinal,Genitourinary,Leukemia,Myeloma,Sarcoma,Thyroid
Treatment Agent: Dabrafenib,Trametinib
Treatment Location: Both at MDACC & and Other Sites
Primary To determine the overall response rate (ORR) of dabrafenib and trametinib anti-cancer combination therapy in subjects with rare BRAF V600E mutated solid tumors or hematologic malignancies. Secondary To determine the duration of response of dabrafenib in combination with trametinib in subjects with selected rare BRAF-mutated cancers. To determine progression-free survival (PFS) of dabrafenib in combination with trametinib in subjects with selected rare BRAF-mutated cancers. To determine overall survival (OS) of dabrafenib in combination with trametinib in subjects with selected rare BRAF-mutated cancers. To determine the safety of dabrafenib in combination with trametinib in subjects with selected rare BRAF-mutated cancers. Exploratory To identify candidate predictive and prognostic molecular features for each histology to characterize treatment-emergent malignancies and to characterize the mechanisms of underlying adverse events (AEs) of special interest. To investigate the relationship between plasma trametinib, dabrafenib, and dabrafenib metabolite concentrations, changes from baseline in tumor deaxyribonucleic acid (DNA), ribonucleic acid (RNA) or proteins and evaluate pharmacodynamic (PD) response. To evaluate changes from baseline in health-related quality of life (HRQOL) Pharmacogenetics (PGx): To investigate the relationship between genetic variants in host DNA and the pharmacokinetic (PK), safety, tolerability and efficacy of each therapeutic treatment.
