Brief Summary:

The aim of the study is to determine the efficacy of selinexor in adults with TETs determined by overall response rate (RECIST 1.1) in two parallel cohorts of patients with advanced thymomas or thymic carcinomas. The study is an international, multicenter, open label phase II trial using Simons two stage design. The study population is adults with histologically confirmed, advanced, inoperable TETs who are progressing after treatment with least one platinum containing chemotherapy regimen.

This study is comprised of 2 similar phase II tirals, one running in EU (25 patients) and one running in US (25 patients).

There are two study arms:

Arm A: Thymoma

  • Stage 1: 15 patients
  • Stage 2: 10 patients

Arm B: Thymic carcinoma

  • Stage 1: 15 patients
  • Stage 2: 10 patients

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Thymoma Advanced Thymic Epithelial Tumour Drug: Selinexor Phase 2

Inclusion Criteria:

  • Histologically confirmed advanced TET (thymoma or thymic carcinoma)
  • Inoperable per local Investigator (Masaoka Stage III or IV)
  • Progression after treatment with least one platinum containing chemotherapyregimen

  • A 4 weeks interval from any investigational agents or cytotoxic chemotherapy to start of study is required
  • Signed informed consent
  • Adequate bone marrow function and organ function:

    • Hematopoietic function: total white blood cell count (WBC) ≥ 3000/mm³, absolute neutrophil count (ANC) ≥ 1500/mm³, platelet count ≥ 100,000/mm²
    • Hepatic function: bilirubin < 1.5 times the upper limit of normal (ULN), ALT < 2.5 times ULN or ALT < 5.0 times ULN in the presence of liver metastases
    • Creatinine clearance > 30 ml/min according to Cockcroft-Gault
  • Patients of childbearing potential must agree to use adequate birth control during and for 3 months after participation in this study

Exclusion Criteria:

  • No significant medical illness that in the investigator's opinion cannot be adequately controlled with appropriate therapy or would compromise the patient's ability to tolerate this therapy, including

    • Unstable cardiovascular function

    • Markedly decreased visual acuity
    • Active infection requiring intravenous antibiotics
  • Pregnancy or breast-feeding
  • Symptomatic brain metastasis requiring corticosteroids
  • Uncontrolled autoimmune disorders. Patients with autoimmune disorders under control on medication may be included. Patients with pure red cell aplasia may be included if haemoglobin levels are relatively stable on transfusions or medication
  • Any other cancer (excluding radically operated localised squamous skin cancer) with clinical activity within the last 2 years
  • Significantly diseased or obstructed gastrointestinal tract, malabsorption, uncontrolled vomiting or diarrhea or inability to swallow oral medications
  • No dehydration of NCI-CTCAE grade ≥ 1
  • Serious psychiatric or medical conditions that could interfere with treatment.
  • No history of organ allograft
  • No concurrent therapy with approved or investigational anticancer therapeutics
