A Phase II Single Arm Pilot Study of the Chk1/2 Inhibitor (LY2606368) In BRCA1/2 Mutation Associated Breast or Ovarian Cancer, Triple Negative Breast Cancer, and High Grade Serous Ovarian Cancer

Trial ID # NCT02203513
Phase II
Drug Class Cell Cycle Inhibitors: CHK1/2
Drug Name ACR-368
Alternate Drug Names checkpoint kinase 1 inhibitor LY2606368, LY2606368, Prexasertib
Drugs in Trial ACR-368
Eligible Participant

Recurrent high grade serous ovarian cancer

Patients Enrolled

28 HGS gBRCA WT; median 5 prior therapies; 79% Pt-R/Pt-Rf; 22 HGS gBRCA MUT; median 5 prior therapies

Therapy Setting


Study Design

Open-Label, Non-randomized


CBR, ORR, PFS, evaluated per RECIST


gBRCA1/2; Exploratory: CCNE1, CCNE1 protein


ORR: 29% (8PR, n=28)
PFS: 7.4 months (n=24)
19/24 patients had CCNE1 mRNA upregulation, AMP or CCNE1 protein overexpression; 12/19 had PFS>6 months

Exploratory analysis Pt-R/Pt-Rf:
ORR: 32% (6PR, n=19); CBR: 58% (6PR, 5SD, n=19); PFS: 7.5 months (data extracted from publication)

ORR: 11.1% (1CR, 1PR, n=18)
DCR: 77.8% (1CR, 1PR, 12SD, n=18)

Clinically Significant Adverse Events

Serious AE: grade 3 febrile neutropenia (n=2)
Grade 3-4 AE: neutropenia (transient) (93%), leukopenia (82%), thrombocytopenia (25%), anemia (11%)


Promising activity in heavily pretreated BRCA WT patients and also with CCNE1 alterations, but modest activity in BRCA MUT patients
