Open Actively Recruiting

Study of Alpelisib (BYL719) in Combination With Trastuzumab and Pertuzumab as Maintenance Therapy in Patients With HER2-positive Advanced Breast Cancer With a PIK3CA Mutation

About

Brief Summary

The purpose of this two part multicenter, randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled, Phase III study is to evaluate the efficacy and safety of alpelisib compared to alpelisib matching-placebo in combination with trastuzumab and pertuzumab as maintenance treatment of patients with HER2-positive advanced breast cancer whose tumor harbors a PIK3CA mutation following induction therapy with a taxane in combination with trastuzumab and pertuzumab. Part 1 is the open-label, safety run-in part of the study, designed to confirm the recommended phase 3 dose (RP3D) dose of alpelisib in combination with trastuzumab and pertuzumab. Following Part 1, Part 2 will be initiated, which is the randomized, Phase III part of the study.

Inclusion Criteria:

  • Participant has histologically-confirmed HER2-positive breast cancer that is advanced (loco-regionally not amenable to surgery or is metastatic).
  • Participant has received pre-study induction therapy with up to and including a maximum of 8 cycles of a taxane (docetaxel, paclitaxel, or nab-paclitaxel), plus trastuzumab and pertuzumab. 4 or 5 cycles of induction therapy are permitted if discontinuation of taxane was due to taxane toxicity. Of note, participants enrolled in Part 1 of this study received 4-6 cycles of pre-study induction therapy.
  • Participant has an Eastern Cooperative Oncology Group (ECOG) performance status 0 or 1
  • Participant has adequate bone marrow and organ function
  • Applies only to Part 2: Participant has a PIK3CA mutation(s) present in tumor prior to enrollment, locally confirmed per test listed in protocol or as determined by a Novartis designated central laboratory.

Exclusion Criteria:

  • Participant with inflammatory breast cancer at screening.
  • Participant with evidence of disease progression during the pre-study induction therapy and prior to first dose of alpelisib (or alpelisib/alpelisib matching-placebo for Part 2)
  • Participant with an established diagnosis of diabetes mellitus type I or uncontrolled type II based on fasting plasma glucose (FPG) and HbA1c.
  • Participant has a known history of acute pancreatitis within 1 year of screening or past medical history of chronic pancreatitis
  • Participant has clinically significant, uncontrolled heart disease and/or recent cardiac events
  • Participant has a history of Steven-Johnson Syndrome (SJS), erythema multiforme (EM) or Toxic Epidermal Necrolysis (TEN).
  • Participant has currently documented pneumonitis/interstitial lung disease Other protocol-defined Inclusion/Exclusion may apply.
