AZD1775 will be administered orally as a single dose on Day 1 Cycle 0. Following a 5±2 days washout period, AZD1775 (5 doses BID over 2.5 days) will be taken in combination with paclitaxel and carboplatin in each 21-day cycle for 6 cycles. Following 6 cycles of combination treatment, patients may continue on AZD1775 monotherapy (5 doses BID Day 1 to Day 2.5 in each 21-day cycle) at the investigator’s discretion.
AZD1775 is a highly selective, adenosine-triphosphate (ATP) competitive, small-molecule inhibitor of the WEE1 kinase that sensitizes tumour cells to cytotoxic agents and is being developed for the treatment of advanced solid tumours and p53 pathway deficient malignancies. Gemcitabine is a nucleoside analog used as chemotherapy.
Other Name: MK1775
Commercially available paclitaxel will be administered at a dosage of 175 mg/m2 as a 3-hour IV infusion on Cycle Day 1 of a 21-day cycle for 6 cycles.
Paclitaxel is a mitotic inhibitor used in cancer chemotherapy ; it and docetaxel represent the taxane family of drugs.
Following the paclitaxel infusion, carboplatin will be administered at a dose of AUC 5 as an IV infusion on Cycle Day 1 of a 21-day cycle for 6 cycles. According to the Cancer Therapy Evaluation Program Information Letter Regarding the AUC Based Dosing of Carboplatin, the maximum carboplatin dose should not exceed the target AUC (mg*min/mL)*150 mL/min, but it may be less (Ivy et al 2010). For this study, the maximum dose of carboplatin cannot exceed a total dose of 750 mg.
Carboplatin is a chemotherapy drug used against some forms of cancer (mainly ovarian carcinoma, lung, head and neck cancers as well as endometrial, esophageal, bladder, breast and cervical; central nervous system or germ cell tumors; osteogenic sarcoma, and as preparation for a stem cell or bone marrow transplant.).
