A Study to Compare Elacestrant vs. Standard of Care for the Treatment of Patients with ER+/HER2- Advanced Breast Cancer


About this study

The purpose of this study is to compare the effectiveness and safety of elacestrant to the standard of care (SoC) options of fulvestrant or an aromatase inhibitor (AI) in women and men with breast cancer whose disease has advanced on at least one endocrine therapy including a CDK4/6 inhibitor in combination with fulvestrant or an aromatase inhibitor (AI) .

Participation eligibility

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. There is no guarantee that every individual who qualifies and wants to participate in a trial will be enrolled. Contact the study team to discuss study eligibility and potential participation.

Inclusion Criteria:

  • Subjects with proven diagnosis of adenocarcinoma of the breast with evidence of either locally advanced disease not amenable to resection or radiation therapy with curative intent or metastatic disease not amenable to curative therapy. 
  • Subjects must be appropriate candidates for endocrine monotherapy.
  • Subjects must have measurable disease or bone-only disease.
  • Female or male subjects age ≥ 18 years.
  • Female subjects must be postmenopausal women.
  • Male subjects must not allow pregnancy with their sperm (abstain, do not donate sperm, etc.). 
  • Subjects must have ER+/HER2-tumor status.
  • Subjects must have previously received at least one and no more than two lines of endocrine therapy for advanced/metastatic breast cancer and meet additional previous treatment criteria.
  • Subjects must have received prior treatment with a CDK4/6 inhibitor in combination with either fulvestrant or an aromatase inhibitor (AI) for mBC. 
  • Subjects may have received no more than one line of chemotherapy in the advanced/metastatic setting. 
  • Subjects must have ctDNA ESR1-mut or ESR1-WT status as determined by central testing before subject is randomized.

Exclusion Criteria: 

  • Prior treatment with elacestrant or investigational SERD or ER antagonist (for example, D-0502, GDC-0810, GDC-0927, GDC-9545,G1T-48,  LSZ102, AZD9496, SAR439859, ZN-c5, H3B-6545, bazedoxifene, or lasofoxifene). 
  • Prior anticancer or investigational drug treatment within the following windows:
    • Fulvestrant treatment < 28 days before first dose of study drug.
    • Any endocrine therapy < 14 days before first dose of study drug (with the exception of GnRH agonist therapy in male subjects).
    • Chemotherapy < 21 days before first dose of study drug.
    • Any investigational anti-cancer drug therapy < 28 days or five half-lives (whichever is shorter) before the first dose of study drug. Enrollment of subjects whose most recent therapy was an investigational agent should be discussed with the Sponsor 3. Presence of symptomatic visceral disease as defined in protocol.
    • Bisphosphonates or RANKL inhibitors initiated or dose changed <3 months prior to first dose of study drug
