Official Title

Phase I Study of Everolimus (RAD001) in Combination With Lenalidomide in Patients With Advanced Solid Malignancies Enriched for Renal Cell Carcinoma

Brief Summary

      The purpose of this study is to study the combination of two anticancer drugs, everolimus
      (RAD001) and lenalidomide in patients whose cancer is no longer responding to standard
      treatment or patients who are unable to tolerate the standard treatment for their cancer.

Detailed Description

      The purpose of this study is to study the combination of two anticancer drugs, everolimus
      (RAD001) and lenalidomide in patients whose cancer is no longer responding to standard
      treatment or patients who are unable to tolerate the standard treatment for their cancer. The
      investigators seek to establish the safety of taking these two medications together and to
      determine the appropriate doses of the two drugs when given together as well as identify
      potential side effects when the drugs are administered together.

      Another purpose of this study is to find out if the medication works for the patient's kind
      of cancer and side effects of the combination of RAD001 and lenalidomide by looking at the
      patient's response to the treatment. The investigators want to find out what effects, good or
      bad, the drugs have on the patient's cancer.

      This study will also look at specific substances called biomarkers in the patient's blood and
      in the tumor tissue which are involved in the growth of tumor cells and determine if the
      levels of these biomarkers are related to the patient's response to treatment or development
      of side effects.

      An expansion cohort is currently enrolling patients with adenoidcystic carcinoma,
      neuroendocrine and kidney cancer.

          -  Ability to understand and willingness to voluntarily sign an informed consent form.

          -  Histologic or cytologic confirmation of a solid malignancy.

          -  Age ≥ 18 years at the time of signing the informed consent form. Because no dosing or
             adverse event data are currently available on the use of everolimus in combination
             with lenalidomide in patients < 18 years of age, children are excluded from this

          -  Able to adhere to the study visit schedule and other protocol requirements.

          -  Patients must have at least one measurable site of disease according to Response
             Evaluation Criteria in Solid Tumors (RECIST) criteria that has not been previously
             irradiated. If the patient has had previous radiation to the marker lesion(s), there
             must be evidence of progression since the radiation.

          -  Diagnosed with advanced refractory solid malignancies or intolerant of standard
             therapy for the stage of the disease (because there is currently no standard approved
             therapy for adenoidcystic carcinoma, therefore there is no requirement of prior
             therapy for this patient population).

          -  All previous cancer therapy, including radiation, hormonal therapy and surgery, must
             have been discontinued at least 4 weeks prior to treatment in this study. A minimum of
             6 weeks treatment break is required in case of nitrosoureas or mitomycin C.

          -  Eastern Cooperative Oncology Group (ECOG) performance status of 0 - 2 at study entry.

          -  Able to receive prophylactic anticoagulation with aspirin, warfarin or low molecular
             weight heparin when required for lenalidomide administration.

          -  Fasting serum cholesterol ≤ 300 mg/dL OR ≤ 7.75 mmol/L AND fasting triglycerides ≤ 2.5
             x upper limit of normal (ULN). NOTE: In case one or both of these thresholds are
             exceeded, the patient can only be included after initiation of appropriate lipid
             lowering medication.

                  ml/min/m² if elevated creatinine

               -  Total bilirubin < 2.0 mg/dL or < 1.5.0 x ULN for the institution whichever is

               -  Aspartate aminotransferase (AST) (SGOT) and alanine aminotransferase (ALT) (SGPT)
                  < 2.x ULN or < 5 x ULN if hepatic metastases are present.

          -  All study participants must be registered into the mandatory Revlimid Risk Evaluation
             and Mitigation Strategy (REMS®) program, and be willing and able to comply with the
             requirements of the REMS® program.

          -  Females of reproductive potential must adhere to the scheduled pregnancy testing as
             required in the Revlimid REMS® program.

          -  Females of childbearing potential (FCBP) must have a negative serum or urine pregnancy
             test with a sensitivity of at least 50 milli-International Unit (mIU)/mL within 10 -
             14 days prior to and again within 24 hours of prescribing lenalidomide (prescriptions

             heterosexual intercourse or begin TWO acceptable methods of birth control, one highly
             effective method and one additional effective method AT THE SAME TIME, at least 28
             days before she starts taking lenalidomide. FCBP must also agree to ongoing pregnancy
             testing. Men must agree to use a latex condom during sexual contact with a FCBP even
             if they have had a successful vasectomy.

             infection, symptomatic congestive heart failure, unstable angina pectoris, cardiac

             while taking lenalidomide).

          -  Any condition, including the presence of laboratory abnormalities, which places the

          -  Patients known to be positive for HIV or infectious hepatitis, type B or C requiring
             active therapy. Patients on combination antiviral therapy are ineligible because of
             the potential for pharmacokinetic interactions with everolimus and or lenalidomide. In
             addition, these patients are at increased risk of lethal infections when treated with
