Brief Summary

This is an open label, multi-institutional, single arm study of a phase Ib study, followed by a phase II study of durvalumab with radiation therapy (RT) in patients with urothelial cancer (UC). No randomization or blinding is involved.

Detailed Description


OUTLINE: This is a multi-center study.

The phase Ib study will evaluate the safety of combining durvalumab with RT followed by
adjuvant durvalumab. The phase II study will estimate the Progression Free Survival (PFS) and
Disease Control Rate (DCR) with durvalumab plus RT followed by single agent durvalumab for
patients with UC of bladder.

PHASE Ib INVESTIGATIONAL TREATMENT:

Cohort 1 will consist of up to 6 patients who will receive durvalumab 1500mg 2 doses Q4
weekly with RT to gross disease, 64.8 Gy, 36 fractions on weekdays over about 7 weeks.
Durvalumab will be started on day 1; RT will be started on day 1 or 2.

Three patients will be enrolled initially. If 2 or more patients (out of 3) experience
dose-limiting toxicity (DLT), the combined treatment will be considered unsafe. Otherwise, an
additional 3 patients will be treated at the same dose. If 0 or 1 patient experience DLT, the
dose of durvalumab will be deemed safe for phase 2 part of the study. If, however, 2 or more
patients (out of 6) experience DLT, the combined treatment will be considered unsafe.

Post-concurrent durvalumab and RT, single agent durvalumab will be given1500mg every 4 weeks
(±7 days) for a total period of up to 12 months. Adjuvant durvalumab treatment will be
started 3-4 weeks post completion of durvalumab and RT.

PHASE II INVESTIGATIONAL TREATMENT:

Subjects will receive durvalumab 1500mg 2 doses Q4 weekly with RT to gross disease, 64.8 Gy,
36 fractions on weekdays over about 7 weeks. Durvalumab will start on Day 1. RT to start on
Day 1 or 2.

Post-concurrent durvalumab and RT, single agent durvalumab will be given1500mg every 4 weeks
(±7 days) for a total period of up to 12 months. Adjuvant durvalumab monotherapy will be
started 3-4 weeks post completion of durvalumab and RT.

Life expectancy of >6 months per treating physician.

Adequate organ and marrow function as defined below:

1. Hemoglobin ≥ 9.0 g/dL

2. Absolute neutrophil count (ANC) ≥ 1.5 x 10^9/L (> 1500 per mm^3)

3. Platelet count ≥ 100 x 10^9/L (>100,000 per mm^3)

4. Serum bilirubin ≤ 1.5 x institutional upper limit of normal (ULN). This will not apply
to subjects with confirmed Gilbert's syndrome (persistent or recurrent
hyperbilirubinemia that is predominantly unconjugated in the absence of hemolysis or
hepatic pathology), who will be allowed only in consultation with their physician.

5. AST (SGOT)/ALT (SGPT) ≤ 2.5 x institutional upper limit of normal unless liver
metastases are present, in which case it must be ≤ 5x ULN.

6. Serum creatinine CL>30 mL/min by the Cockcroft-Gault formula (Cockcroft and Gault 1976)
or by 24-hour urine collection for determination of creatinine clearance:

Eligibility

Criteria:
Inclusion Criteria:

Phase Ib subjects must meet the following inclusion criteria:

- Locally advanced urothelial cancer of bladder with any of the following:

1. T3-4, N0-2 M0, OR Tx N1-2 M0 OR T2 N1-2 M0: Treatment naïve, unresectable, OR
medically unfit for surgery, OR cisplatin ineligible. T3 N0 M0 patients can be
included if they are cisplatin ineligible.

2. Patients who have T3-4, N0-2 M0 OR Tx N1-2 M0 OR T2 N1-2 M0 post-neoadjuvant
chemotherapy who become unresectable OR medically unfit for surgery.

Phase II subjects must meet the following inclusion criteria:

- Locally advanced urothelial cancer of bladder with any of the following:

1. T3-4, N0-2 M0 OR Tx N1-2 M0 OR T2 N1-2 M0: Treatment naïve, unresectable, OR
medically unfit for surgery OR cisplatin ineligible. T3 N0 M0 patients can be
included if they are cisplatin ineligible.

2. T3-4, N0-1 M0 OR Tx N1-2 M0 OR T2 N1-2 M0 patients post-neoadjuvant chemotherapy
who become unresectable OR medically unfit for surgery.

- T2, N0, M0 who are ineligible to get cisplatin based chemotherapy.

All subjects:

- Written informed consent and HIPAA authorization for personal health information,
obtained from the subject prior to performing any protocol-related procedures,
including screening evaluations.

- Eastern Cooperative Oncology Group (ECOG) performance status of 0-2.

- Life expectancy of >6 months per treating physician.

- Subjects must have archival tissue available from previous TURBT (preferred) or lymph
node core biopsy within 8 weeks of treatment or be assessed by the treating urologist
to undergo maximal TURBT. The extent of TURBT may vary for each patient and will be
determined by the treating urologist. Further, the treating urologist will decide if
performing the TURBT is clinically appropriate. If the potential subject does not have
tumor amenable to biopsy, there is insufficient tissue for PD-L1 testing or is not
clinically appropriate for TURBT, enrollment must be discussed with the
sponsor-investigator on a case by case basis.

- Histologically proven urothelial carcinoma of bladder with predominant transitional
cell component. Adenocarcinoma, squamous cell differentiation, or other atypical
histology (such as plasmacytoid or sarcomotoid) of the bladder will be allowed on the
study, provided they form <50% of the histology.

- Females of childbearing potential must have a negative urine and serum pregnancy test
within 3 days of study registration.

NOTE: Female subjects are considered of child bearing potential unless they are surgically
sterile (they have undergone a hysterectomy, bilateral tubal ligation, or bilateral
oophorectomy) or they are ≥60 years old and naturally postmenopausal for at least 12
consecutive months.

- Subject is willing and able to comply with the protocol for the duration of the study
including undergoing treatment and scheduled visits and examinations including follow
up.

change in PSA for past 6 months can be included. Patients with a history of
prostate cancer must not have any definitive radiation therapy to prostate area.

2. Adequately treated non-melanoma skin cancer or lentigo maligna without evidence
of disease.

3. Adequately treated carcinoma in situ without evidence of disease e.g., cervical
cancer in situ.

- Receipt of the last dose of anti-cancer therapy (chemotherapy, immunotherapy,
endocrine therapy, targeted therapy, biologic therapy, tumor embolization, monoclonal
antibodies, other investigational agent) within14 days prior to the first dose of
study drug (14 days prior to the first dose of study drug for subjects who have
received prior TKIs [e.g., erlotinib, gefitinib and crizotinib] and within 6 weeks for
nitrosourea or mitomycin C).

- Mean QT interval corrected for heart rate (QTc) ≥470 ms on electrocardiogram (ECG)

with vitiligo, Grave's disease, or psoriasis not requiring systemic treatment (within
the past 2 years) are not excluded. Patients with h/o completely resolved childhood
asthma or atopy will not be excluded. Patients with well-controlled hypothyroidism on
thyroxine replacement will be eligible as well.
