Niraparib and TSR-042 for the Treatment of BRCA-Mutated Unresectable or Metastatic Breast, Pancreas, Ovary, Fallopian Tube, or Primary Peritoneal Cancer
Phase IB Trial of Niraparib and TSR-042 in Patients With BRCA-Mutated Breast, Pancreas or Ovary Cancer
This phase IB trial evaluates the effect of niraparib and TSR-042 in treating patients with BRCA-mutated breast, pancreas, ovary, fallopian tube, or primary peritoneal cancer that cannot be removed by surgery (unresectable) or has spread to other places in the body (metastatic). Niraparib is an inhibitor of PARP, an enzyme that helps repair deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA) when it becomes damaged. Blocking PARP may help keep cancer cells from repairing their damaged DNA, causing them to die. PARP inhibitors are a type of targeted therapy. Immunotherapy with monoclonal antibodies, such as TSR-042, may help the body's immune system attack the cancer, and may interfere with the ability of tumor cells to grow and spread. Giving niraparib and TSR-042 may kill more cancer cells.
OUTLINE: Patients receive niraparib orally (PO) once daily (QD) on days 1-28 of cycle 1. Beginning cycle 2, patients receive niraparib PO QD on days 1-21 and dostarlimab intravenously (IV) on day 1. Treatment repeats every 21 days for 4 cycles in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity. Beginning cycle 6, patients receive niraparib PO QD on days 1-42 and dostarlimab IV on day 1. Cycles repeat every 42 days for up to 24 months in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity. After completion of study treatment, patients are followed up for 30 days, every 6 months for 2 years, and then annually for up to 5 years.

Documented hysterectomy or oophorectomy must be confirmed with medical records of the actual procedure or confirmed by an ultrasound. Tubal ligation must be confirmed with medical records of the actual procedure, otherwise the patient must be willing to use 2 adequate barrier methods throughout the study, starting with the screening visit through 180 days after the last dose of study treatment.
