Intervention: Carboplatin (Drug); Dinaciclib (Drug); Laboratory Biomarker Analysis (Other); Pharmacological Study (Other); Veliparib (Drug)

Phase: Phase 1

This phase I trial studies the side effects and the best dose of veliparib and dinaciclib when given together with or without carboplatin in treating patients with solid tumors that have spread to other places in the body and usually cannot be cured or controlled with treatment. Veliparib and dinaciclib may stop the growth of tumor cells by blocking some of the enzymes needed for cell growth. Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as carboplatin, work in different ways to stop the growth of tumor cells, either by killing the cells, by stopping them from dividing, or by stopping them from spreading. Giving veliparib and dinaciclib with or without carboplatin may kill more tumor cells.

Clinical Details

Official title: Phase 1 Trial of ABT-888 and SCH727965 Without or With Carboplatin in Patients With Advanced Solid Tumors

Study design: Endpoint Classification: Safety Study, Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment, Masking: Open Label, Primary Purpose: Treatment

Primary outcome: Recommended phase 2 dose of veliparib/dinaciclib with or without carboplatin determined by dose-limiting toxicities graded according to the National Cancer Institute Common Terminology Criteria for Adverse Events (version 4.0)

Secondary outcome:

Anti-tumor activity of veliparib/dinaciclib with or without carboplatin as assessed by Response Evaluation Criteria in Solid Tumors 1.1

Changes in immunohistochemical or biochemical measurements of cyclin-dependent kinase (cdk), poly (ADP-ribose) polymerase 1 activity

Expression of homologous recombination repair proteins

Level of deoxyribonucleic acid damage in tissue samples

Pharmacokinetic parameters (Cmax, AUC, t1/2) of dinaciclib in the presence of veliparib

Pharmacokinetic parameters (maximum concentration [Cmax], area under the curve [AUC], and half-life [t1/2]) of veliparib in the absence or presence of dinaciclib

Detailed description: PRIMARY OBJECTIVES: I. To evaluate the safety and tolerability of ABT-888 (veliparib) and SCH727965 (dinaciclib) without or with carboplatin in patients with advanced solid tumors. II. To determine the recommended phase 2 dose (RP2D) for ABT-888 in combination with SCH727965 without or with carboplatin, determined by evaluating the feasibility, safety, dose-limiting toxicities, and the maximally tolerated dose(s). SECONDARY OBJECTIVES: I. To confirm the safety of the combination of ABT-888 and SCH727965 without or with carboplatin in patients with known breast cancer (BRCA)1 or BRCA2 germline mutation. II. To characterize the pharmacokinetic parameters of ABT-888 both alone and in combination with SCH727965 without or with carboplatin. III. To assess the pharmacodynamic effects of ABT-888 in combination with SCH727965 without or with carboplatin, both in surrogate tissues and in tumor. IV. To assess preliminary antitumor activity of the ABT-888/SCH727965 and ABT-888/SCH727965/carboplatin combinations in subjects with solid tumors. OUTLINE: This is a dose-escalation study of veliparib and dinaciclib followed by an expanded BRCA-proficient and BRCA-deficient cohort study. PART 1: Patients receive veliparib orally (PO) twice daily (BID) on days 1-28 and dinaciclib intravenously (IV) over 2 hours on days 8 and 22. Courses repeat every 28 days in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity. Once the maximum-tolerated dose (MTD) is determined, part 2 of study is initiated. PART 2: Patients receive veliparib and dinaciclib as patients in Part 1. Patients also receive carboplatin IV over 60 minutes on days 8 and 22. Courses repeat every 28 days in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity. After completion of study treatment, patients are followed up every 3 months.


Minimum age: 18 Years. Maximum age: N/A. Gender(s): Both.
