IMPARP-HRD: This study is evaluating how effective a combined treatment of two targeted therapies (pamiparib and tislelizumab) is in people with advanced cancers that have molecular profiles consistent with homologous recombination deficiency (HRD)An Open Label, Signal Seeking, Translational, Phase II Trial of Pamiparib in Combination With Tislelizumab in Patients With Advanced Tumours With Homologous Recombination Repair Defects

Clinical summary

Summary

The study will consist of two cohorts, broadly, cohort A - patients without a pathogenic BRCA1 or BRCA2 mutation but with other germline or somatic mutations in other HRD genes; cohort B- patients with a pathogenic BRCA1 or BRCA2. All participants will receive a combined treatment of pamiparib and tislelizumab. Pampiparib will be administered orally, twice daily, at a dose of 40mg. Tislelizumab will be administered intravenously, every 21 days, at a dose of 200mg.

Conditions

This trial is treating patients with advanced cancers with molecular profiles consistent with homologous recombination deficiency (HRD)

    • AST ≤ 3.0 x the ULN, irrespective of the presence or absence of liver metastases
    • Serum bilirubin ≤ 1.5 x ULN (On fractionation ≤ 90% of total bilirubin should be unconjugated.

    Total bilirubin must be <4 x ULN for patients with Gilbert's Syndrome)

    • Serum creatinine ≤ 1.5x ULN or eGFR ≥ 30 mL/min/1.73 m2 by Chronic Kidney Disease Epidemiology Collaboration (CKD-EPI) equation (appendix 5)
    • INR ≤ 1.5x ULN (≤2.5x ULN if on anticoagulants)
  8. Patient has the ability to take oral medications without medical history of malabsorption or other chronic gastrointestinal disease, or other conditions that may harm compliance and/or absorption of the study treatment
  9. WOCBP must agree to use a highly effective method of birth control for the duration of the study and for 6 months after the last dose of study treatment (see Appendix 3), and have a negative serum pregnancy test within 7 days of study registration
  10. Non-sterile males and their female partners must agree to use a highly effective method of birth control for the duration of the study and for 6 months after the last dose of study treatment. Non- sterile males must avoid sperm donation for the duration of the study and for at least 6 months after the last study drug
  11. Female patient must agree not to breastfeed starting at screening and throughout the study period, and for 6 months after the final study drug administration
  12. Patient is willing and able to comply with the protocol for the duration of the study including undergoing biopsies, treatment, and scheduled visits and examination including follow up

Exclusion

  1. One or more of the exclusion criteria as per the TRIAGE Framework protocol applies
  2. Any previous treatment with a PARP inhibitor

    Note: Prior immune checkpoint blockade is permitted provided all the criteria below are met:

    • Patients must not have received the immune checkpoint blockade within 28 days of study registration
    • Patients must not have experienced a toxicity that led to permanent discontinuation of prior immunotherapy
