Clinical Trials Round-Up: August 2016
by Zara Jethani
We have added two new clinical trials to our roster.
NEW CLINICAL TRIALS
AbbVie / RTOG (NCT 02573324): A Study of ABT-414 in Subjects With Newly Diagnosed Glioblastoma (GBM) With Epidermal Growth Factor Receptor (EGFR) Amplification.
This study seeks to determine whether the addition of ABT-414 to concomitant radiotherapy and temozolomide (TMZ) prolongs progression free survival (PFS) and overall survival (OS) in participants with newly diagnosed glioblastoma (GBM) with epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) amplification.
ABT-414 is an antibody drug conjugate (ADC) designed for the treatment of tumors harboring amplified genomic EGFR. Antibody drug conjugates are a rapidly growing class of cancer drugs that combine the targeting properties of monoclonal antibodies (mAbs) with the anti-tumor effects of potent cytotoxic drugs.

Eli Lilly and Company (NCT 02308020): A Phase 2 Study of Abemaciclib in Patients With Brain Metastases Secondary to Hormone Receptor Positive Breast Cancer, Non-small Cell Lung Cancer, or Melanoma.
This is a multi-center, open-label, Phase 2 trial of abemaciclib in patients with brain metastases secondary to HR+breast cancer, NSCLC, or melanoma. This study will evaluate the safety and efficacy of abemaciclib in patients with HR+metastatic breast cancer, NSCLC, or melanoma and new or not previously irradiated brain lesions as well as previously irradiated progressive brain lesions.
Abemaciclib (LY2835219) is an oral, selective, and potent small molecule inhibitor of cyclin-dependent kinase (CDK) 4 and 6 (CDK4 and CDK6) with acceptable physical characteristics, pharmacokinetic (PK) properties, and safety profile in nonclinical species. Download pdf flyer
