Brief Summary:

This is an open label, randomized, multicenter study evaluating the activity of lasofoxifene relative to fulvestrant for the treatment of pre- and postmenopausal women with locally advanced or metastatic ER+/HER2- breast cancer with an acquired ESR1 mutation and who have disease progression on an aromatase inhibitor (AI) in combination with a cyclin dependent kinase (CDK) 4/6 inhibitor.

The primary objective is to evaluate the progression free survival (PFS) of 5 mg lasofoxifene relative to fulvestrant for the treatment of pre- and postmenopausal women with locally advanced or metastatic estrogen receptor positive (ER+)/human epidermal growth factor 2 negative (HER2-) breast cancer with an estrogen receptor 1 (ESR1) mutation.

The secondary objectives are to evaluate:

  1. Clinical benefit rate (CBR) and Objective Response Rate (ORR)
  2. Duration of response
  3. Time to response
  4. Overall Survival (OS)
  5. Pharmacokinetics of lasofoxifene
  6. Quality of life (QoL): Quality of Life (QoL): vaginal assessment scale (VAS) and vulvar assessment scale (VuAS) questionnaires
  7. Safety of lasofoxifene
  8. Response to various ESR1 mutation (Y537S, Y537C, D538G, E380Q, S463P, V534E, P535H, L536H, L536P, L536R, L536Q, or Y537N).

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Progression-Free Survival (PFS) [ Time Frame: through study completion, an average of 1 year ]
    PFS is defined as the interval from the date of randomization to the earlier date of first documented radiographic progression or death due to any cause

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Clinical Benefit Rate (CBR) [ Time Frame: through study completion, an average of 1 year ]
    CBR is defined as the percentage of all subjects with a complete or partial response; or stable disease for >/=24 weeks.

  2. Objective Response Rate (ORR) [ Time Frame: through study completion, an average of 1 year ]
    ORR is defined as the percentage of subjects with either a complete response (CR) or a partial response (PR) as assessed by the RECIST 1.1 criteria.

  3. Overall Survival (OS) [ Time Frame: through study completion, an average of 1 year ]
    OS is defined as time from randomization to death due to any cause.

  4. Incidence of Adverse Events (AEs) and Serious AEs [ Time Frame: through study completion, an average of 1 year ]
    The type, severity (graded by Common Terminology Criteria for Adverse Events [CTCAE version 5.0]), course, duration, seriousness, and relationship to study treatment will be assess at each visit

Layout table for eligibility information
Ages Eligible for Study:   18 Years and older   (Adult, Older Adult)
Sexes Eligible for Study:   Female
Gender Based Eligibility:   Yes
Gender Eligibility Description:   Pre- and Postmenopausal women
Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   No

Inclusion Criteria:

  1. Pre- or postmenopausal.

    Postmenopausal women are defined as:

    1. ≥60 years of age with no vaginal bleeding over the prior year, or
    2. <60 years with "premature menopause" or "premature ovarian failure" manifest itself with secondary amenorrhea for at least 1 year and follicle stimulating hormone (FSH) and estradiol levels in the postmenopausal range according to institutional standards, or
    3. surgical menopause with bilateral oophorectomy. Note: premenopausal women who meet all of the other entry criteria must be maintained on ovarian suppression (such as Lupron) during the study and subjects counseled to use appropriate contraception to prevent pregnancy.
  2. If possible, a biopsy of metastatic breast cancer tissue will be obtained to provide histological or cytological confirmation of ER+ and HER2- disease as assessed by a local laboratory, according to the American Society of Clinical Oncology/College of American Pathologists (ASCO/CAP) guidelines, using slides, paraffin blocks, or paraffin samples. If a biopsy is not possible, the ER and HER2 status from the tissue obtained at the time of the original diagnosis must confirm that the subject's cancer is ER+ and HER2-.
  3. Locally advanced or metastatic breast cancer with radiological or clinical evidence of progression on an AI in combination with a CDK 4/6 inhibitor for advanced breast cancer with demonstrated prior sensitivity to endocrine therapy (recurrence or progression after at least 12 months of treatment in the metastatic setting).
  4. Locally advanced or metastatic breast cancer with either measurable (according to RECIST 1.1) or non-measurable lesions.
  5. At least one or more of the following point ESR1 mutations as assessed in cell-free circulating tumor DNA (ctDNA) obtained from a blood (plasma) or tissue sample: Y537S, Y537C, D538G, E380Q, S463P, V534E, P535H, L536H, L536P, L536R, L536Q, or Y537N. The ctDNA sample collection must be obtained within 30 days prior to randomization to determine eligibility and baseline. Note: a prior genomic test confirming that the subject has an ESR1 mutation can be used to determine eligibility; however, an ESR1 sample must also be collected within 30 days of randomization.
  6. Subjects who have not received cytotoxic chemotherapy or those who have received one cytotoxic chemotherapy regimen in the neo-adjuvant or adjuvant setting prior to entry into the trial and/or no more than one chemotherapy regimen for metastatic breast cancer. Subjects must be free of all chemotherapy acute toxicity excluding alopecia and Grade II peripheral neuropathy before study entry.
  7. ECOG performance score of 0 or 1.
  8. Adequate organ function as shown by:

    2. platelet count ≤100,000 cells/mm3
    3. hemoglobin >/=9.0 g/dl
    4. ALT and AST levels ≤2.5 upper limit of normal (ULN) or ≤5 in the presence of visceral metastasis
    5. total serum bilirubin ≤1.5 X ULN (≤ 3 X ULN for subjects known to have Gilbert Syndrome)

  2. Presence of brain metastasis.
  3. Lymphangitic carcinomatosis involving the lung.
  4. Impending visceral crisis in need of cytotoxic chemotherapy as assessed by the investigator.
  5. Radiotherapy within 30 days prior to randomization except in case of localized radiotherapy for analgesic purposes or for lytic lesions at risk of fracture, which can then be completed within 7 days prior to randomization. Subjects must have recovered from radiotherapy toxicities prior to randomization.
  6. History of long QTC syndrome or a QTC of >480 ms.
  7. History of a pulmonary embolus (PE) or deep vein thrombosis (DVT) within the last 6 months or any known thrombophilia. Subjects stable on anti-coagulants for maintenance are eligible as long as the DVT and/or PE occurred >6 months prior to enrollment and there is no evidence for active thrombosis. The use of low dose ASA is permitted.
  8. Any significant co-morbidity that would impact the study or the subject's safety.
  9. History of a positive human immunodeficiency virus (HIV), hepatitis B virus (HBV) or hepatitis C virus (HCV) at Screening. Subjects cured of hepatitis C (no viral load) are eligible.
