|Masking:||Triple (Participant, Care Provider, Investigator)|
|Official Title:||A Phase 2 Randomized, Double-Blind, Placebo-Controlled, Multicenter Study of VS-6063 in Subjects With Malignant Pleural Mesothelioma|
|Study Start Date :||September 2013|
|Actual Primary Completion Date :||January 2016|
|Actual Study Completion Date :||January 2016|
Active Comparator: defactinib (VS-6063)
2 x 200 mg defactinib (VS-6063) tablets, administered orally, twice daily
Drug: defactinib (VS-6063)
Placebo Comparator: Placebo
2 placebo tablets, administered orally, twice daily
Sugar pill manufactured to mimic defactinib tablet
- Compare the overall survival (OS) in subjects with malignant pleural mesothelioma receiving defactinib (VS-6063) or placebo [ Time Frame: From randomization to end of life, an expected average of 12 months ]The median duration of OS will be estimated based on the 50th percentile of the Kaplan-Meier distribution
- Compare the progression free survival (PFS) in subjects with malignant pleural mesothelioma receiving defactinib (VS-6063) or placebo [ Time Frame: From date of randomization to earliest documented date of progression, an expected average of 4 months ]PFS will be calculated based on the stratified log-rank test, and will use Kaplan-Meier estimation methods for estimation of summary statistics
- To assess Quality of Life (QoL) in subjects treated with defactinib (VS-6063) or placebo using the Lung Cancer Symptom Scale modified for mesothelioma (LCSS-Meso) [ Time Frame: Every 3-4 weeks from baseline through end of treatment, an expected average of 4 months ]QoL will be assessed using the LCSS-Meso. The LCSS-Meso total score will be analyzed through a comparison of median area under the curve (AUC) between the 2 treatment groups using a Wilcoxon test.
- To determine the objective response rate (ORR) in subjects receiving defactinib (VS-6063) or placebo. [ Time Frame: Every 6-8 weeks from baseline through end of treatment, an expected average of 4 months ]ORR is measured as the best overall response assessed by central review using Response Evaluation Criteria In Solid Tumors (RECIST), version 1.1.
- Determine the time to new lesion in subjects receiving defactinib (VS-6063) or placebo [ Time Frame: Every 6-8 weeks from baseline until end of treatment, an expected average of 4 months ]Time to new lesion will be calculated from the date of randomization to the time of CT scan documenting a new lesion or date of other unambiguous indicator of new lesion development.
- Evaluate the relationship of defactinib (VS-6063) pharmacokinetics (PK) and outcome [ Time Frame: Time points at Week 4, Week 7, Week 10 and Week 13 ]PK parameters, including but not limited to plasma concentration, AUC (Area Under Curve) 0-t, Cmax, Tmax, and T1/2, compared with outcome
- Evaluate the population pharmacokinetics of defactinib (VS-6063) in subjects with malignant pleural mesothelioma [ Time Frame: Time points at Week 4, Week 7, Week 10 and Week 13 ]PK parameters, including but not limited to plasma concentration, AUC (Area Under Curve) 0-t, Cmax, Tmax, and T1/2
- Evaluate the safety and tolerability of defactinib (VS-6063) in subjects with malignant pleural mesothelioma [ Time Frame: From start of treatment to end of treatment, an expected average of 4 months ]Adverse events and their frequency, duration and severity, physical examination, laboratory parameters, vital signs and ECG change monitoring as determined based on CTCAE (Common Toxicity Criteria for Adverse Effects) 4.03
- To collect EuroQol 5-Dimensional Health Questionnaire (EQ-5D) for health economics purposes [ Time Frame: Every 3-4 weeks from baseline through end of treatment, an expected average of 4 months ]

|Ages Eligible for Study:||18 Years and older (Adult, Older Adult)|
|Sexes Eligible for Study:||All|
|Accepts Healthy Volunteers:||No|
- 1. Able to understand and give written informed consent and comply with study procedures.
- 2. Histologically proven diagnosis of MPM. All subjects must have biopsy material (archival tissue is acceptable) available for immunohistochemistry determination of Merlin status prior to enrollment.
- 3. Evaluable disease, or measurable disease as assessed by RECIST version 1.1.
- 4. Received only one prior chemotherapy regimen consisting of ≥ 4 cycles of pemetrexed/cisplatin or pemetrexed/carboplatin; subjects must have documentation of an ongoing response (confirmed PR or SD) following completion of this regimen. Subjects changing from cisplatin to carboplatin or vice versa within the same course of treatment because of platinum toxicity will be considered to have had first-line chemotherapy. Note: Subjects may have undergone previous surgical resection of their disease providing it was completed prior to initiation of chemotherapy.
- 5. Received last dose of prior chemotherapy within ≤ 6 weeks of first dose of VS-6063.
- 6. Have completed baseline quality of life evaluation as assessed by LCSS modified for mesothelioma
- 7. Age ≥18 years.
- 8. Life expectancy ≥3 months.
- 9. All prior cytotoxic toxicities must have resolved to grade ≤ 1 prior to randomization.
- 10. Performance status according to the Karnofsky Scale of ≥ 70% (after palliative measures such as pleural drainage).
- 11. Corrected QT interval (QTc) < 470 ms (as calculated by the Fridericia correction formula).
- 12. Adequate bone marrow function (hemoglobin ≥ 9.0 g/dL; platelets ≥ 100 x 109/L; absolute neutrophil count [ANC] ≥ 1.5 x 109/L) without the use of hematopoietic growth factors.
- 13. Adequate renal function (creatinine ≤ 1.5 x ULN [upper limit of normal] or glomerular filtration rate of ≥ 50mL/min).
