Brief Title: Paclitaxel Albumin-Stabilized Nanoparticle Formulation and Bevacizumab in Treating Patients With Stage IV Melanoma That Cannot Be Removed by Surgery or Gynecological Cancers

Targeted Complex Therapy for Advanced Melanoma, Gynecologic Cancers, and Other Malignancies: Nab-Paclitaxel (Abraxane)/Bevacizumab Complex (AB-Complex)

INTRODUCTION

  • Org Study ID: MC1371
  • Secondary ID: NCI-2013-01782, MC1371, P30CA015083
  • NTC ID: NCT02020707
  • Sponsor: Mayo Clinic

BRIEF SUMMARY

This phase I trial studies the side effects and best dose of nab-paclitaxel and bevacizumab in treating patients with stage IV melanoma that cannot be removed by surgery (unresectable), cancer of the cervix, endometrium, ovary, fallopian tube or peritoneal cavity. Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as nab-paclitaxel, work in different ways to stop the growth of tumor cells, either by killing the cells, by stopping them from dividing, or by stopping them from spreading. Bevacizumab may stop or slow tumor growth by blocking the growth of new blood vessels necessary for tumor growth. Giving nab paclitaxel and bevacizumab may kill more tumor cells than nab-paclitaxel alone.

DETAILED DESCRIPTION

PRIMARY OBJECTIVES:

I. To determine the maximally tolerated dose (MTD-malignant melanoma [MM]) of Abraxane (nab-paclitaxel)/bevacizumab-complex (AB-complex) among patients with metastatic malignant melanoma.

II. To determine the maximally tolerated dose (MTD-gynecologic [GYN]) of AB-complex among patients with gynecologic cancers.

III. To further assess the safety profile and anti-tumor activity of the recommended phase II dose of AB-complex for patients with previously-treated endometrial cancer IV. To further assess the safety profile and anti-tumor activity of the recommended phase II dose of AB-complex for patients with previously treated ovarian cancer

SECONDARY OBJECTIVES:

I. To gather preliminary data on tumor response rate and progression free survival time of AB-complex among patients with metastatic malignant melanoma.

II. To gather preliminary data on tumor response rate and progression free survival time of AB-complex among patients with gynecologic cancers.

CORRELATIVE OBJECTIVES (DOSE-ESCALATION COHORTS ONLY):

I. Pharmacokinetics of paclitaxel administered in the context of AB-complex. II. Tumor concentrations of paclitaxel 24 hour (h) following AB-complex infusion and correlation with plasma levels.

OUTLINE: This is a dose-escalation study.

Patients receive nab-paclitaxel/bevacizumab-complex intravenously (IV) over 30-60 minutes on days 1, 8, and 15. Cycles repeat every 28 days in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity.

After completion of study treatment, patients are followed up every 6 months for 12 months.
