Brief Summary:
This phase II trial studies whether adding pembrolizumab to olaparib (standard of care) works better than olaparib alone in treating patients with pancreatic cancer with germline BRCA1 or BRCA2 mutations that has spread to other places in the body (metastatic). BRCA1 and BRCA2 are human genes that produce tumor suppressor proteins. These proteins help repair damaged deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA) and, therefore, play a role in ensuring the stability of each cell's genetic material. When either of these genes is mutated, or altered, such that its protein product is not made or does not function correctly, DNA damage may not be repaired properly. As a result, cells are more likely to develop additional genetic alterations that can lead to some types of cancer, including pancreatic cancer. Immunotherapy with monoclonal antibodies, such as pembrolizumab, may help the body's immune system attack the cancer, and may interfere with the ability of tumor cells to grow and spread. Olaparib is an inhibitor of PARP, a protein that helps repair damaged DNA. Blocking PARP may help keep tumor cells from repairing their damaged DNA, causing them to die. PARP inhibitors are a type of targeted therapy. The addition of pembrolizumab to the usual treatment of olaparib may help to shrink tumors in patients with metastatic pancreatic cancer with BRCA1 or BRCA2 mutations.

Detailed Description:

PRIMARY OBJECTIVE:

I. To evaluate the progression free survival (PFS) of advanced pancreatic cancer patients with germline BRCA1 or BRCA2 mutations treated with olaparib + pembrolizumab compared to olaparib alone as maintenance therapy.

SECONDARY OBJECTIVES:

I. To evaluate the safety and tolerability associated with the combination of olaparib + pembrolizumab versus (vs.) olaparib alone as maintenance therapy.

II. To evaluate the overall survival (OS) of patients treated with olaparib + pembrolizumab compared to olaparib alone as maintenance therapy.

III. To evaluate the overall response rate (ORR) by Response Evaluation Criteria in Solid Tumors (RECIST) 1.1, including confirmed and unconfirmed, complete and partial response, of patients treated with olaparib + pembrolizumab compared to olaparib alone, in the subset of patients with measurable disease.

IV. To evaluate the overall response rate (ORR) by immune RECIST, including confirmed and unconfirmed, complete and partial response, of patients treated with olaparib + pembrolizumab compared to olaparib alone, in the subset of patients with measurable disease.

V. To evaluate the duration of response (DoR) by RECIST 1.1 in patients treated with olaparib + pembrolizumab compared to olaparib alone.

BANKING OBJECTIVE:

I. To bank tissue and blood specimens for future correlative studies.

OUTLINE: Patients are randomized to 1 of 2 arms.

ARM A: Patients receive olaparib orally (PO) twice daily (BID) on days 1-21 and pembrolizumab intravenously (IV) over 30 minutes on day 1. Treatment repeats every 21 days for up to 18 cycles in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity. Beginning in cycle 19, patients receive olaparib PO BID on days 1-42 and pembrolizumab IV over 30 minutes on day 1. Cycles repeat every 42 days in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity.

ARM B: Patients receive olaparib PO BID on days 1-21. Cycles repeat every 21 days in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity.

After completion of study treatment, patients are followed for 30 days and every 6 months for 3 years from the date of randomization.

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Progression-free survival (PFS) [ Time Frame: Up to 3 years ]
    Primary analysis of PFS will be conducted in all eligible patients according to the intent-to-treat principle using a log rank test stratified by first line chemotherapy, performance status and disease status after first line platinum-based treatment. Distributions of PFS by treatment arm will be estimated using the method of Kaplan-Meier.


Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Incidence of adverse events [ Time Frame: Up to 3 years ]
    Will utilize the National Cancer Institute Common Terminology Criteria for Adverse Events version 5.0 for toxicity and serious adverse event reporting.

  2. Overall survival [ Time Frame: Up to 3 years ]
    Distributions of overall survival in each arm will be estimated using the method of Kaplan-Meier and compared using the stratified log-rank test.

  3. Overall response rate (ORR) per Response Evaluation Criteria in Solid Tumors (RECIST) [ Time Frame: Up to 3 years ]
    Measured per RECIST 1.1. ORR will be estimated in the subset of patients with measurable disease. Assuming 90% of patients (n=35 per arm) will present with measurable disease, ORR can be estimated to within 18% (95% confidence interval) and will be compared by treatment arm using logistic regression.

  4. ORR per Immune-Modified Response Evaluation Criteria in Solid Tumors (iRECIST) [ Time Frame: Up to 3 years ]
    Measured per iRECIST. ORR will be estimated in the subset of patients with measurable disease. Assuming 90% of patients (n=35 per arm) will present with measurable disease, ORR can be estimated to within 18% (95% confidence interval) and will be compared by treatment arm using logistic regression.

  5. Duration of response (DoR) [ Time Frame: Up to 3 years ]
    Distributions of DoR in each arm will be estimated using the method of Kaplan-Meier and compared using the stratified log-rank test.

Women/men of reproductive potential must have agreed to use an effective contraceptive method for the course of the study through 6 months after the last dose of study medication. A woman is considered to be of "reproductive potential" if she has had menses at any time in the preceding 12 consecutive months. In addition to routine contraceptive methods, "effective contraception" also includes heterosexual celibacy and surgery intended to prevent pregnancy (or with a side-effect of pregnancy prevention) defined as a hysterectomy, bilateral oophorectomy or bilateral tubal ligation. However, if at any point a previously celibate participant chooses to become heterosexually active during the time period for use of contraceptive measures, he/she is responsible for beginning contraceptive measures. Should a woman become pregnant or suspect she is pregnant while she or her partner is participating in this study, she should inform her treating physician immediately
  • Patients must not have a history of (non-infectious) pneumonitis that required steroids or current pneumonitis
  • Patients must not have an active infection requiring systemic therapy
  • Patients must not have active autoimmune disease that has required systemic treatment in past 2 years (i.e., with use of disease modifying agents, corticosteroids or immunosuppressive drugs). Replacement therapy (e.g., thyroxine, insulin, or physiologic corticosteroid replacement therapy for adrenal or pituitary insufficiency, etc.) is not considered a form of systemic treatment
