Abstract 1389

Background

Anti-VEGF & anti-DLL4 have both demonstrated single agent activity in ovarian cancer. Navicixizumab is an anti-DLL4/VEGF IgG2 bispecific monoclonal antibody that had a response rate of 25% (3/12) in heavily pretreated ovarian cancer pts who were treated in an earlier single agent phase Ia trial.

Methods

This is an ongoing Phase 1b study of paclitaxel & navicixizumab in platinum resistant ovarian cancer pts who have failed > 2 prior therapies &/or bevacizumab. Paclitaxel 80 mg/m2 is given on Days 1, 8 and 15 & navicixizumab is given on Days 1 & 15 of every 28 day cycle. This study was designed as a dose escalation trial testing navicixizumab doses of 3 or 4 mg/kg followed by an expansion cohort to enroll a total of 30 patients. The expansion cohort was undertaken with 3 mg/kg of navicixizumab as higher doses did not show increased activity, but did result in more pronounced chronic toxicity in the Phase 1a study. A standardized treatment algorithm for hypertension is being employed.

Results

Eighteen pts were treated; 5 are still ongoing. The median number of prior therapies was 4 (range 2-8), all 18 pts had received prior paclitaxel & 13 had received bevacizumab. Eight pts (44%) had a PR, 6 (33%) had SD, 2 (11%) had PD & 2 (11%) were NE. The clinical benefit rate was 78%. Ten of 14 (71%) pts with an elevated CA-125 had a GCIG-defined response. The related AEs (all grades) that occurred in > 15% of the pts were: hypertension (67%), fatigue (44%), diarrhea (44%), headache (22%), neutropenia (17%), GERD (17%) & decrease appetite (17%). Other related AEs of significance were an infusion reaction (6%), Gr2 pulmonary hypertension (6%), Gr 4 thrombocytopenia (6%) & Gr4 GI perforation (6%). Anti-drug antibody occurred in 3 of 16 pts who have been evaluated; drug exposure was impacted in 1 pt.

Conclusions

The efficacy data in these heavily pre-treated platinum resistant ovarian cancer pts are encouraging & enrollment is ongoing. The safety profile appears to be manageable with hypertension being the most common adverse event related to navicixizumab.
