  Purpose

This research trial is testing a combination of two experimental drugs, MSC1936369B (Mitogen-activated protein extracellular signal-regulated kinase (MEK) Inhibitor) and SAR245409 (Phosphatidylinositol 3-kinase (Pi3K)/Mammalian Target of Rapamycin (mTOR) inhibitor), in the treatment of locally advanced or metastatic solid tumors. The primary purpose of the study is to determine the maximum tolerated dose of the drug combination.

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Number of subjects with dose limiting toxicities [ Time Frame: 22 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
    This will be used as the primary measure for determining the Maximum Tolerated Dose (MTD) of MSC1936369B and SAR245409 combination therapy.


Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Number of subjects experiencing any treatment-emergent adverse events [ Time Frame: 34 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
  • Pharmacokinetics parameters in plasma: Cmax, tmax, AUC (0-24), AUC (0-tau), AUC (0-infinity), t1/2, CL/f, CLss/f, Vz/f, Vss/f, Racc(AUC), and Racc(Cmax) for MSC1936369B [ Time Frame: 34 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Pharmacokinetics parameters in plasma: Cmax, tmax, AUC (0-24), AUC (0-tau), AUC (0-infinity), t1/2, CL/f, CLss/f, Vz/f, Vss/f, Racc(AUC), and Racc(Cmax) for SAR245409 [ Time Frame: 34 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • pS6 concentrations in Peripheral Blood Mononuclear Cells (PBMCs) [ Time Frame: 34 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Pharmacodynamic marker

  • pERK concentrations in PBMCs [ Time Frame: 34 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Pharmacodynamic marker

  • Number of subjects with complete tumor response, partial tumor response, or stable disease [ Time Frame: Every 6 weeks for 34 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    The number of subjects with a complete response or partial response based on the investigator tumor evaluations performed every 6 weeks in accordance with RECIST v1.1.

Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: MSC1936369B and SAR245409 once daily Drug: MSC1936369B (pimasertib)
MSC1936369B (pimasertib) will be administered orally in successive 21-day cycles. Dose escalation will proceed until Maximum Tolerated Dose (MTD) is reached. Once the MTD is reached, enrollment will begin in four disease-specific expansion cohorts at either the MTD or a lower dose recommended by the Safety Monitoring Committee. The four expansion cohorts will enroll subjects with Breast Cancer, Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer (NSCLC), Melanoma, and Colorectal Cancer.
Other Name: Pimasertib
Drug: SAR245409 (PI3K and mTOR inhibitor)
SAR245409 (PI3K and mTOR inhibitor) will be administered orally in successive 21-day cycles. Dose escalation will proceed until MTD is reached. Once the MTD is reached, enrollment will begin in four disease-specific expansion cohorts at either the MTD or a lower dose recommended by the Safety Monitoring Committee. The four expansion cohorts will enroll subjects with Breast Cancer, NSCLC, Melanoma, and Colorectal Cancer.
Other Name: PI3K and mTOR inhibitor
Experimental: MSC1936369B and SAR245409 twice daily Drug: MSC1936369B (pimasertib)
MSC1936369B (pimasertib) will be administered orally in successive 21-day cycles. Dose escalation will proceed until MTD is reached. The maximum tolerated dose of MSC1936369B (pimasertib) will be combined with a lower dose of SAR245409 (PI3K and mTOR inhibitor).
Other Name: pimasertib
Drug: SAR245409 (PI3K and mTOR inhibitor)
SAR245409 (PI3K and mTOR inhibitor) will be administered orally in successive 21-day cycles. Dose escalation will proceed until MTD is reached. The maximum tolerated dose of SAR245409 (PI3K and mTOR inhibitor) will be combined with a lower dose of MSC1936369B (pimasertib).
Other Name: PI3K and mTOR inhibitor
