ABOUT THIS STUDY
1. Written informed consent and HIPAA authorization for release of personal health information. NOTE: HIPAA authorization may be included in the informed consent or obtained separately.
2. Age ≥ 18 years at the time of consent (no upper age limit)
3. Eastern Cooperative Oncology Group (ECOG) Performance Status of ≤ 2 (see Section 10.1 Appendix A)
4. Tumor Eligibility:
1. Dose escalation cohorts: Histologically confirmed advanced solid tumor refractory to standard of care therapy, or for which there is no accepted standard of care
2. Expansion cohort (at RP2D): metastatic pancreatic cancer patients who have received at least one line of therapy in the metastatic setting
5. Measurable or non-measurable (but evaluable) disease according to RECIST v1.1 for dose escalating cohorts; measurable disease as per RECIST v1.1 required for expansion cohort
6. Life expectancy ≥ 12 weeks
7. Recovered from all reversible acute toxic effects of last anti-cancer treatment (other than alopecia) to ≤Grade 1 or baseline. Patients with baseline neuropathy that is ≤ grade 2 are eligible for enrollment.
8. Demonstrate adequate organ function as defined in the table below; all screening labs to be obtained within 28 days prior to day -6 of ulixertinib
Hemoglobin (Hgb) ≥ 9 g/dL Absolute Neutrophil Count (ANC) ≥ 1,500 /mm3 Platelets ≥ 100,000/mm3 Creatinine ≤1.5 x upper limit of normal (ULN) or Calculated creatinine clearance ≥ 60 mL/min using the Cockcroft-Gault formula Bilirubin ≤ 1.5 x ULN Aspartate aminotransferase (AST) and Alanine aminotransferase (ALT) ≤ 2.5 x ULN; if tumor involvement of the liver ≤ 5 x ULN
- Note: Hematology and other lab parameters that are ≤ grade 2 but still meet criteria for study entry are allowed. Furthermore, changes in laboratory parameters during the study should not be considered adverse events unless they meet criteria for dose modification(s) of study medication outlined by the protocol and/or worsen from baseline during therapy.
10. Adequate cardiac function; left ventricular ejection fraction (LVEF) >50% as assessed by ultrasound/echocardiography (ECHO); corrected QT interval (QTc) <470ms
11. Females of childbearing potential must have a negative serum pregnancy test within 3 days prior to day -6 of ulixertinib. NOTE: Females are considered of child bearing potential unless they are surgically sterile (have undergone a hysterectomy, bilateral tubal ligation, or bilateral oophorectomy) or they are naturally postmenopausal for at least 12 consecutive months
12. Females of childbearing potential and males must be willing to abstain from heterosexual activity* or use effective methods of contraception from the time of informed consent until 120 days after treatment discontinuation. Acceptable contraception methods can be comprised of an intrauterine device (IUD), vasectomy of a female subject's male partner, contraceptive rod implanted into the skin, OR use of two of the following: diaphragm with spermicide (cannot be used in conjunction with cervical cap/spermicide), cervical cap with spermicide (nulliparous women only), contraceptive sponge (nulliparous women only), male condom or female condom (cannot be used together), hormonal contraceptive.] *Abstinence is acceptable if this is the usual lifestyle and preferred contraception for the subject.
13. Subject is willing and able to comply with study procedures based on the judgement of the investigator or protocol designee.
14. Willing to provide archival tissue (if available) and consent to mandatory pretreatment and on-treatment biopsy as deemed safe by the treating physician (expansion cohort only) for research purposes only.
1. Pregnant or breastfeeding (NOTE: breast milk cannot be stored for future use while the
mother is being treated on study)
2. Treatment with any cancer-directed therapy (chemotherapy, hormonal therapy, biologic,
radiation or immunotherapy, etc.) or investigational drug within 28 days or 5
half-lives (whichever is shorter) prior to day -6 of ulixertinib
3. A history or current evidence/risk of retinal vein occlusion (RVO) or central serous
4. Major surgery within 28 days prior to day -6 of ulixertinib
5. Not willing to avoid grapefruit, grapefruit juices, grapefruit hybrids, oranges,
pummelos, and exotic citrus fruits from 7 days prior day -6 of ulixertinib and during
the entire study due to potential CYP3A4 interaction with the study medications.
6. Intake of any herbal preparations or medications (including, but not limited to, Saint
John's Wort and ginkgo biloba) and dietary supplements within 7 days prior to day -6
of ulixertinib due to potential CYP3A4 interaction with the study medications
7. Unable or unwilling to discontinue use of any drug known to be a strong inhibitor of
CYP3A4, CYP1A2 or CYP2D6 or strong inducer of CYP3A4 (prohibited inducers and
inhibitors must be discontinued within 2 weeks prior to day -6 of ulixertinib; see
section 10.3 Appendix C)
8. Unable or unwilling to discontinue use of any drug known to be a sensitive CYP3A4
substrate with a narrow therapeutic index; see section 10.3 Appendix C
9. Known metastases of the central nervous system (CNS)
10. Any important medical illness or abnormal laboratory finding that would increase the
risk of participating in the study (based on the investigator's judgment)
11. Psychiatric illness/social situations that would limit compliance with study
12. Has a known additional malignancy that is active and/or progressive requiring
treatment; exceptions include basal cell or squamous cell skin cancer, in situ
cervical or bladder cancer, or other cancer for which the patient has been disease
free for at least five years
13. Impaired GI function or GI disease that may significantly impair absorption (e.g.,
inflammatory bowel disease (IBD), malabsorption syndrome, small bowel resection,
uncontrolled vomiting or diarrhea)
14. Inability to swallow oral medications
