  Purpose

RATIONALE: Erlotinib hydrochloride may stop the growth of tumor cells by blocking some of the enzymes needed for cell growth. Monoclonal antibodies, such as panitumumab, can block tumor growth in different ways. Some block the ability of tumor cells to grow and spread. Others find tumor cells and help kill them or carry tumor-killing substances to them. Panitumumab may also stop the growth of colorectal cancer by blocking blood flow to the tumor. Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as irinotecan hydrochloride, work in different ways to stop the growth of tumor cells, either by killing the cells or by stopping them from dividing. It is not yet known whether erlotinib hydrochloride given together with panitumumab is more effective with or without irinotecan in treating patients with metastatic colorectal cancer.

PURPOSE: This randomized phase II trial is studying giving erlotinib hydrochloride together with panitumumab to see how well it works with or without irinotecan hydrochloride as second-line therapy in treating patients with metastatic colorectal cancer.

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Determine the tumor response rate [ Time Frame: Every 8 weeks until disease progression ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Tumor response rate will be measured by CT scan of the chest and CT scan or MRI scan of abdomen and pelvis every 8 weeks until disease progression.


Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Determine the time to disease progression [ Time Frame: Every 8 weeks until disease progression ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Time to disease progression will be measured by CT scan of the chest and CT scan or MRI scan of abdomen and pelvis every 8 weeks until disease progression.

  • Determine the time to treatment failure [ Time Frame: From first day of study drug treatment until the date of stopping all study drugs for any reason ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Time to treatment failure will be measured as the time elapsed from the day of first study drug administration to the date a subject stops all study drugs for any reason.

  • Collect data on the toxicity of the combination of study drugs [ Time Frame: Day 1 of every treatment cycle while on study treatment and every 6 weeks while in long term follow-up ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
    Data on the toxicity of the combination of study drugs will be assessed by laboratory blood draws done on day 1 of every treatment cycle while on study treatment and every 6 weeks while in long term follow-up.

Detailed Description:

OBJECTIVES:

Primary

  • Determine the response rate in patients with metastatic colorectal cancer treated with erlotinib hydrochloride and panitumumab with versus without irinotecan hydrochloride as second-line therapy .

Secondary

  • Determine time to disease progression and time to treatment failure in patients treated with these regimens.
  • Determine the safety of these regimens in these patients.
  • Determine the effect of these regimens on downstream targets of EGFR in skin rash associated with pharmacologic EGFR inhibition (exploratory).
  • Determine the association between KRAS mutations and response to EGFR inhibition (exploratory).

OUTLINE: This is a multicenter study. Patients are stratified according to wild-type Kras tumors ( 6/6 UGT1A1 vs 6/7 UGT1A1), and are randomized to 1 of 2 treatment arms. Patients with wild-type Kras tumor 7/7 UGT1A1 receive treatment in arm III.

  • Arm I: Patients receive oral erlotinib hydrochloride once daily on days 1-14, panitumumab IV over 30-90 minutes on day 1, and irinotecan hydrochloride IV over 90 minutes on day 1. Treatment repeats every 2 weeks in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity.
  • Arm II: Patients receive oral erlotinib hydrochloride once daily on days 1-14 and panitumumab IV over 30-90 minutes on day 1. Treatment repeats every 2 weeks in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity. Upon disease progression, patients receive irinotecan hydrochloride as in arm I.
  • Arm III: Patients receive erlotinib hydrochloride and panitumumab as in arm II. Skin biopsies and blood samples may be collected for further analysis.

After completion of study therapy, patients are followed every 6 weeks.
