A Study of BBI608 Administered With Paclitaxel in Adult Patients With Advanced Malignancies
Describes the nature of a clinical study. Types include:
- Observational study — observes people and measures outcomes without affecting results.
- Interventional study (clinical trial) — studies new tests, treatments, drugs, surgical procedures or devices.
- Medical records research — uses historical information collected from medical records of large groups of people to study how diseases progress and which treatments and surgeries work best.
During the early phases (phases 1 and 2), researchers assess safety, side effects, optimal dosages and risks/benefits. In the later phase (phase 3), researchers study whether the treatment works better than the current standard therapy. They also compare the safety of the new treatment with that of current treatments. Phase 3 trials include large numbers of people to make sure that the result is valid. There are also less common very early (phase 0) and later (phase 4) phases. Phase 0 trials are small trials that help researchers decide if a new agent should be tested in a phase 1 trial. Phase 4 trials look at long-term safety and effectiveness, after a new treatment has been approved and is on the market.

About this study
This is an open label, single arm phase 1 dose escalation study and phase 2 study of BBI608 in combination with paclitaxel in patients with advanced malignancies.
Participant eligibility includes age, gender, type and stage of disease, and previous treatments or health concerns. Guidelines differ from study to study, and identify who can or cannot participate. If you need assistance understanding the eligibility criteria, please contact the study team.See eligibility criteria
- Signed written informed consent must be obtained and documented according to International Conference on Harmonization (ICH)- Good Clinical Practice (GCP), the local regulatory requirements, and permission to use private health information in accordance with the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPPA) prior to study-specific screening procedures
- A histologically or cytologically confirmed ovarian, breast, non-small cell lung, melanoma, gastric/GEJ/esophageal or other type of advanced cancer that is metastatic, unresectable, or recurrent and for which weekly paclitaxel is an acceptable therapeutic option.
- Patients with epithelial ovarian, fallopian tube, or primary peritoneal cancer must also meet the following criteria: a. Must be either platinum-resistant or platinum-refractory according to the following definitions:(1)Platinum-resistant: a response to platinum therapy followed by progression within 6 months after completing therapy (2)Platinum-refractory: best response of stable disease or progression during platinum therapy; b. Must have had prior systemic treatment with a taxane; c. Must have received no more than 4 prior systemic cytotoxic regimens
- Patients with melanoma must also meet the following criteria: a. If melanoma is BRAF wild-type or has BRAF mutations that are not amenable to BRAF inhibitor therapy, and the patient is a candidate for immunotherapy, must have received ipilimumab; b. If melanoma is positive for the V600E or V600K BRAF mutation, must have received at least one line of prior therapy with a BRAF-specific inhibitor; either alone or in combination.
- Patients with triple negative breast cancer (estrogen receptor-negative (ER-), progesterone receptor-negative (PR-), and human epidermal growth factor receptor 2-negative (Her2-) must also meet the following criteria: a. Must have received at least one prior chemotherapy regimen for locally advanced or metastatic disease; b. Must have received prior taxane therapy.
- Patients with NSCLC (adenocarcinoma, squamous, or adenosquamous histopathology) must also meet the following criteria: a. Must have disease that is stage IIIB, not curable by surgery or radiotherapy, or stage IV; b. Must have received at least one prior chemotherapy regimen for locally advanced or metastatic disease; c. EGFR-positive or ALK-positive patients must have received at least one line of EGFR-directed or ALK-directed therapy, respectively; d. Must have received prior taxane therapy.
- Patients with adenocarcinoma arising from the esophagus, gastroesophageal junction, or stomach must also meet the following criteria: a. Must have received prior treatment with a platinum/fluoropyrimidine-based therapy with or without an anthracycline in the metastatic setting; or, in the adjuvant setting if recurrence occurred within 6 months of completing systemic adjuvant treatment; b. Patients with HER2 positive tumors must have had prior treatment with a Her2 inhibitor (e.g. trastuzumab or lapatinib); c. Patients who have received prior taxane therapy may be enrolled.

- Anti-cancer chemotherapy, radiotherapy, immunotherapy, or investigational agents within 7 days of first dose provided all treatment-related adverse events have resolved or have been deemed irreversible, with the exception for a single dose radiation up to 8 Gray (equal to 800 RAD) with palliative intent for pain control up to 7 days before beginning the administration of BBI608.
- Surgery within 4 weeks prior to first dose
- Any known symptomatic brain metastases requiring steroids. Patients with treated brain metastases must be stable for 4 weeks after completion of that treatment, with image documentation required. Patients must have no clinical symptoms from brain metastases and must be either off steroids or on a stable dose of steroids for at least 2 weeks prior to protocol enrollment.
