Everolimus in Treating Patients With Previously Treated Unresectable or Metastatic Esophageal Cancer or Stomach Cancer
A Phase II Study of the mTOR Inhibitor RAD001 in Previously Treated Patients With Unresectable or Metastatic Adenocarcinoma of the Esophagus and Stomach

RATIONALE: Everolimus may stop the growth of tumor cells by blocking some of the enzymes needed for cell growth and by blocking blood flow to the tumor.

PURPOSE: This phase II trial is studying how well everolimus works in treating patients with previously treated unresectable or metastatic esophageal cancer or stomach cancer.

OBJECTIVES:

Primary

  • To determine the overall disease-control rate (complete response, partial response, or stable disease) in patients with previously treated unresectable or metastatic adenocarcinoma of the upper gastrointestinal tract treated with everolimus.

Secondary

  • To determine the safety and toxicity of everolimus in these patients.
  • To determine the efficacy of everolimus, in terms of time to response, duration of response, time to tumor progression, progression-free survival, and overall survival, in these patients.
  • To explore potential correlations between clinical outcome and biomarkers of interest, including S6 protein overexpression and/or other mTOR-related proteins in blood and tumor biopsy samples from these patients.

OUTLINE: This is a multicenter study.

Patients receive oral everolimus once daily on days 1-14. Courses repeat every 14 days in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity.

Blood, serum, and tumor tissue samples are collected for biomarker analysis.

After completion of study treatment, patients are followed up every 3 months for 1 year and then every 6 months thereafter.

  • Fasting serum cholesterol < 300 mg/dL or < 7.75 mmol/L*
  • Fasting triglycerides < 2.5 times ULN*
  • INR ≤ 3.5 (for patients on warfarin)
  • Negative pregnancy test
  • Fertile patients must use effective contraception during and for ≥ 4 months after completion of study treatment (oral, implantable, or injectable contraceptives are not considered effective contraception for this study)

Exclusion Criteria:

  • uncontrolled diabetes mellitus, defined as fasting serum glucose > 1.5 times ULN

  • unstable angina pectoris, symptomatic congestive heart failure, or myocardial infarction within the past 6 months
  • serious uncontrolled cardiac arrhythmia
  • active or uncontrolled infection requiring parenteral antimicrobials
  • known liver disease (e.g., cirrhosis, chronic active hepatitis, or chronic persistent hepatitis)
  • inability to swallow, impaired gastrointestinal (GI) function, or GI disease (e.g., ulcerative colitis, uncontrolled nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, malabsorption syndrome, or small bowel resection) that would significantly alter the absorption of study drugs or preclude the use of oral medications
  • other malignancy within the past 5 years except for nonmelanoma skin cancer or cervical carcinoma in situ
  • known hypersensitivity to everolimus, sirolimus, or temsirolimus or to their excipients
  • other medical conditions that, in the opinion of the investigator, would preclude study participation
  • prior mTOR inhibitors (e.g., rapamycin, CCI-779)
  • concurrent chronic treatment with steroids or another immunosuppressive agent
  • concurrent prophylactic use of hematopoietic growth factors
  • concurrent anticancer agents or therapy (including radiotherapy)
  • other concurrent experimental agents
  • concurrent strong inhibitors or inducers of the isoenzyme CYP3A4
