Brief Summary:

Regorafenib is an oral medication that can interfere with cancer cell growth and reduce the growth of blood vessels around tumors. This study will help find out if regorafenib is a useful drug for treating patients with adenoid cystic carcinomas. Regorafenib has been approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for use in other cancers, but remains an experimental drug that has not yet been approved for use in adenoid cystic carcinoma.

In this study, the patient will initially be treated with a dose of regorafenib that is lower than what the FDA approved for other cancers in an attempt to decrease the risk of side effects. It is possible that this lower starting dose may not be as effective as the higher FDA approved dose. If the patient does well with the lower dose for at least a month on treatment, the physician may consider increasing the dose to the FDA approved dose.

Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: patients with adenoid cystic carcinoma
This is a single-arm phase II study of patients with progressive, recurrent/metastatic adenoid cystic carcinoma (R/M ACC) treated with regorafenib.
Drug: Regorafenib
All eligible patients will receive a starting regorafenib dose of 120 mg daily taken orally for 3 weeks in a 4-week cycle. Patients for whom regorafenib dose reduction was not performed or required may have their treatment dose increased to the FDA-approved dose of 160 mg daily orally for 3 weeks in a 4-week cycle in cycle #2 or beyond (this is not mandatory). RECIST v1.1 tumor assessments will be made at baseline (CT or MRI) and then approximately every 2 cycles (or every 8 weeks (+/- 1 week)). After 10 months, imaging will be done every 3 cycles (or every 12 weeks (+/- 1 week)). Patients may remain on study until progression of disease or unacceptable toxicity

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. patients alive without disease progression [ Time Frame: 6 months ]
    by RECIST v1.1 criteria

  2. best overall response rate [ Time Frame: 6 months ]
    (BOR = CR+PR) documented by RECIST v1.1 criteria

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Safety [ Time Frame: 1 year ]
    Safety will be assessed in terms of AEs, laboratory data and vital sign data, which will be collected for all patients. Appropriate summaries of these data will be presented. AE will be listed individually per patient according to CTCAE version 4.0, and the number of patients experiencing each AE will be summarized. The safety population will comprise all patients who receive at least one dose of study treatment.

Layout table for eligibility information
Ages Eligible for Study:   18 Years and older   (Adult, Older Adult)
Sexes Eligible for Study:   All
Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   No

Inclusion Criteria:

  • Patients must have pathologically or cytologically confirmed adenoid cystic carcinoma. Cancers arising from non-salivary gland primary sites are allowed.
  • Patients must have recurrent and/or metastatic disease not amenable to potentially curative surgery or radiotherapy.
  • At least 2 weeks must have elapsed since the end of prior systemic treatment (4 weeks for bevacizumab- containing regimens) or radiotherapy with resolution of all treatment-related toxicity to NCI CTCAE Version 4.0 grade ≤1 (or tolerable grade 2) or back to baseline (except for alopecia, lymphopenia, or hypothyroidism). Any number of prior therapies for recurrent/metastatic ACC are allowed.
  • Patients must have RECIST v1.1 measurable disease, defined as at least one lesion that can be accurately measured in at least one dimension (longest diameter to be recorded for nonnodal lesions and short axis for nodal lesions) as ≥ 20 mm with conventional techniques or as ≥ 10 mm with spiral CT scan.
  • Patients must have documentation of a new or progressive lesion on a radiologic imaging study performed within 6 months prior to study enrollment (progression of disease over any interval is allowed) and/or new/worsening disease related symptoms within 6 months prior to study enrollment. Note: This assessment will be performed by the treating investigator. Evidence of progression by RECIST criteria is not required.
  • Patients must have archival tissue from the primary tumor or metastases available for correlative studies. Either a paraffin block or twenty unstained slides are acceptable. If twenty slides are not available, a lesser amount may be acceptable after discussion with the Principal Investigator, Dr. Alan L. Ho.
  • Patients must agree to undergo biopsy of a malignant lesion. Biopsies do not need to be done if either the investigator or person performing the biopsy judges that no tumor is accessible for biopsy or that biopsy poses too great of a risk to the patient. Patients may also be exempt if frozen tumor tissue has been collected within 12 months of study enrollment that the Principal Investigator deems is appropriate/sufficient for analysis on this protocol.
  • Age ≥ 18 years.
  • ECOG performance status ≤ 2 (Karnofsky ≥ 60%,).
  • Life expectancy of at least 12 weeks (3 months) as determined by the investigator.
  • Life expectancy of at least 12 weeks (3 months) as determined by the investigator.
  • Subjects must be able to understand and be willing to sign the written informed consent form. A signed informed consent form must be appropriately obtained prior to the conduct of any trial-specific procedure.
  • Adequate bone marrow, liver and renal function as assessed by the following laboratory requirements:

    • Total bilirubin ≤ 1.5 x the upper limits of normal (ULN) Alanine aminotransferase (ALT) and aspartate amino-transferase (AST) ≤ 2.5 x ULN (≤ 5 x ULN for subjects with liver involvement of their cancer)
    • Alkaline phosphatase limit ≤ 2.5 x ULN (≤ 5 x ULN for subjects with liver involvement of their cancer)
    • Lipase ≤ 1.5 x the ULN
    • Amylase ≤ 1.5 x the ULN Serum creatinine ≤ 1.5 x the ULN or calculated creatinine clearance >60 ml/min
    • Platelet count ≥ 100,000 /mm3, hemoglobin (Hb) ≥ 9 g/dL, absolute neutrophil count (ANC) ≥ 1500/mm3. Blood transfusion to meet the inclusion criteria will not be allowed.
  • Women of childbearing potential must have a negative serum pregnancy test performed within 2 weeks prior to the start of study drug. Post-menopausal women (defined as no menses for at least 1 year) and surgically sterilized women are not required to undergo a pregnancy test.
  • Subjects (men and women) of childbearing potential must agree to use adequate contraception beginning at the signing of the consent form until at least 3 months after the last dose of study drug. The definition of adequate contraception will be based on the judgment of the principal investigator or a designated associate.
  • Subject must be able to swallow and retain oral medication.

Exclusion Criteria:

  • Concurrent anti-cancer therapy (chemotherapy, definitive radiation therapy, surgery, immunotherapy, biologic therapy, or tumor embolization) other than study treatment. Concurrent therapy with bisphosphonates or denosumab for bone metastases is allowed.

Palliative radiation to non-target lesions is also allowed.
