Study Title Principal Investigator
A Phase 1b Dose Escalation Study of OMP-54F28 in Combination With Nab-Paclitaxel and Gemcitabine in Patients With Previously Untreated Stage IV Pancreatic Cancer
Depending on safety in this study, additional lower or intermediate dose levels may be evaluated. Depending on emerging safety data from the Phase 1a study 54F28-001 with continuing dose escalation, additional higher dose levels of OMP-54F28 may be evaluated in this study. No dose escalation of OMP-54F28 will be allowed within a dose cohort. Once the maximum tolerated dose (MTD) or maximum administered dose (MAD) has been determined, up to 10 patients may be enrolled in the cohort-expansion phase to better characterize the safety, tolerability and PK of OMP-54F28 combined with nab-paclitaxel and gemcitabine. Up to approximately 34 patients may be enrolled into the study.

A Phase II-R and a Phase III Trial Evaluating Both *Erlotinib (PH II-R) and Chemoradiation (PH III) as Adjuvant Treatment For Patients With Resected Head of Pancreas Adenocarcinoma
PRIMARY OBJECTIVES: I. To determine whether the addition of erlotinib (erlotinib hydrochloride) to gemcitabine (gemcitabine hydrochloride) adjuvant chemotherapy shows a signal for improved survival as compared to gemcitabine alone following R0 or R1 resection of head of pancreas adenocarcinoma (including adenocarcinoma of the head, neck, and uncinate process). (Phase II-R) II. To determine whether the use of concurrent fluoropyrimidine and radiotherapy following adjuvant gemcitabine hydrochloride-based chemotherapy further enhances survival for such patients who are without evidence of progressive disease after 5 cycles of gemcitabine based chemotherapy. (Phase III) SECONDARY OBJECTIVES: I. To evaluate disease-free survival of adjuvant chemotherapy followed by radiotherapy and concurrent fluoropyrimidine for patients with resected head of pancreas adenocarcinoma who are disease free after 5 cycles of adjuvant chemotherapy. II. To evaluate disease-free survival of standard adjuvant gemcitabine chemotherapy with and without erlotinib for patients with resected head of pancreas adenocarcinoma. III. To evaluate adverse events with and without erlotinib for patients with resected head of pancreas adenocarcinoma. IV. To evaluate adverse events of adjuvant chemotherapy with or without radiation therapy and concurrent fluoropyrimidine for patients with resected head of pancreas adenocarcinoma who are disease free after adjuvant chemotherapy. V. To evaluate preoperative cross-sectional imaging of the primary head of pancreas adenocarcinoma in order to determine the frequency with which objective criteria of resectability are present. VI. To determine if patients reporting low baseline fatigue, as measured by the Functional Assessment of Chronic Illness Therapy (FACIT)-Fatigue, predicts survival and to explore correlations between baseline fatigue, as measured by Patient-Reported Outcomes Measurement Information System (PROMIS), and survival. OUTLINE: Patients are randomized to 1 of 2 treatment arms. ARM I: Patients receive gemcitabine hydrochloride intravenously (IV) over 30 minutes on days 1, 8, and 15. Treatment repeats every 28 days for 5 courses in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity. ARM II: Patients receive gemcitabine hydrochloride as in arm I and erlotinib hydrochloride orally (PO) once daily on days 1-28. Treatment repeats every 28 days for 5 courses in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity. (NOTE: Phase II-R erlotinib hydrochloride randomization completed, Arm 2 closed to accrual effective 2/19/2014) Patients with no disease progression after treatment in arm I or II are then stratified according to their first randomization treatment arm (arm I vs arm II) and randomized to 1 of 2 additional treatment arms (arm III or IV). ARM III: Patients receive 1 course of the same treatment that they receive in arm I or II. ARM IV: Patients receive 1 course of the same treatment that they receive in arm I or II. Beginning within 7-21 days after completion of chemotherapy, patients undergo radiotherapy (3-dimensional conformal radiotherapy or intensity-modulated radiotherapy) 5 days per week for 5.5 weeks (28 fractions). During radiotherapy, patients receive either capecitabine PO twice daily (BID) 5 days per week or fluorouracil IV continuously for 5.5 weeks or until radiotherapy is completed. After completion of study treatment, patients are followed up periodically.

ARM A: Patients receive recombinant EphB4-HSA fusion protein IV over 1 hour on days 1, 8, 15, and 22 (beginning course 2), paclitaxel albumin-stabilized nanoparticle formulation IV over 30 minutes and gemcitabine hydrochloride IV over 30 minutes on days 1, 8, and 15. Courses repeat every 28 days in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity. ARM B: Patients receive recombinant EphB4-HSA fusion protein IV over 1 hour on days 1, 8, and 15 (beginning course 2) and docetaxel IV over 1 hour on day 1. Courses repeat every 21 days in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity. ARM C: Patients receive recombinant EphB4-HSA fusion protein IV over 1 hour on days 1, 8, and 15 (beginning course 2), cisplatin IV over 120 minutes and gemcitabine hydrochloride IV over 30 minutes on days 1 and 8. Courses repeat every 21 days in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity. In all arms, patients with chemotherapy related toxicity may continue treatment with recombinant EphB4-HSA fusion protein alone. Patients with toxicity related to recombinant EphB4-HSA fusion protein may continue treatment with chemotherapy at the discretion of the investigator. After completion of study treatment, patients are followed up periodically.

Phase Ib Multicenter, Cohort Dose Escalation Trial to Determine the Safety, Tolerance and Preliminary Antineoplastic Activity of Gemcitabine Administered in Combination With Continuous Intravenous Doses of PRI-724, a CBP/ β- Catenin Inhibitor, to Patients With Advanced or Metastatic Pancreatic Adenocarcinoma Eligible for Second-Line Therapy After Failing First-Line Therapy With FOLFIRINOX (or FOLFOX)
PRI-724 is a small molecule antagonist that binds to the co-activator CBP thereby specifically inhibiting the subset of Wnt/β-catenin-driven genes that are up-regulated in cancer cells. PRI-724 is being developed as a potential antineoplastic agent. Purpose: To determine the safety, tolerability, dose-limiting toxicities (DLTs), and maximum tolerated dose (MTD) of sequential escalating doses per cohort of PRI-724 administered in combination with gemcitabine to patients with adenocarcinoma of the pancreas that is locally advanced, metastatic, or otherwise inoperable, who are candidates for second-line therapy after failing first-line therapy with FOLFIRINOX (i.e., folinic acid [leucovorin], fluorouracil, irinotecan, oxaliplatin) - PRI-724: 320, 640, 905 mg/m2/day, continuous intravenous (CIV) infusion over 24 h, daily × 7 days, 1 week on with 1 week recovery × 2 (4 weeks equals 1 cycle) - Gemcitabine: 1000 mg/m2 IV over 30 minutes; 3 weeks on with 1 week recovery (4 weeks equals 1 cycle) Patients with documented, measurable or evaluable adenocarcinoma of the pancreas that is locally advanced, metastatic, or otherwise inoperable, who are candidates for second-line therapy after failing first-line therapy with FOLFIRINOX, will be entered into this phase 1b, multicenter, open-label, non-randomized, dose-escalation per cohort study. The trial is designed to evaluate the safety, tolerability, DLT(s), and MTD of escalating doses of PRI-724, a CBP/ β- catenin inhibitor, when administered in combination with a standard dose of gemcitabine. Correlative studies include characterization of the PK profiles of PRI-724 and gemcitabine, evaluation of the utility of potential PD markers of PRI-724 activity, as well as preliminary assessment of the antineoplastic activity of PRI-724 plus gemcitabine in this patient population.
