Linked study record
This record is an addendum to the MoST framework (ACTRN12616000908437). The MoST framework protocol consists of 1/molecular screening (genomic analysis to determine whether participants are suitable for a sub-study) and 2/ sub-study design structure (study treatment for specific genomic expression/participant population). Additionally, the sub-study shares the same study objectives and outcomes as the framework. Hence, this is a substudy that linked to ACTRN12616000908437.

Intervention/exposure
Study type
Interventional
Description of intervention(s) / exposure
Participants will receive 2 drugs:
1/ Trastuzumab, that will given to participants via subcutaneous injection by a qualified administrator at 600mg every 3 weeks.
2/ Tucatinib in the format of tablet, will be taken orally by participants at a dose of 300mg twice daily.

The trastuzumab may be withheld, whereas tucatinib dosage may be reduced to 250mg twice daily if participants experience intolerance toxicity. If participants experience further intolerance toxicity, tucatinib dosage may be reduced to 200mg twice daily, and then 150mg twice daily if the tucatinib dosage of 200mg twice daily also leads to intolerance toxicity.
Participants will receive both trastuzumab and tucatinib treatments until disease progression is documented or when the participants experience intolerable toxicity or withdraws for another reason. Participants will be asked to return unused drug and empty drug containers at each return visit. The Pharmacy Department at participating institutions will maintain a record of drugs dispensed for each participant.

Outcomes
Primary outcome [1] 324086 0
The primary end point is disease control defined as: 1. Objective tumour response, based on complete and partial responses using cancer specific response criteria or 2. Time to progressive (TTP) disease exceeds the documented time to progressive disease on the last treatment prior to substudy entry by at least 1.3 times (TTP2/TTP1 > 1.3). Or exceeds 6 months if TTP1 is not evaluable. Where disease evaluation is not based on imaging scans (eg. CT and MRI), biomarker-based or qualitative clinical assessment of response may be included, such as European Leukemia Net (ELN) guidelines for acute myeloid leukemia (AML), Gynecologic Cancer Intergroup (GCIG) and Prostate Cancer Working Group 3 (PCWG3) criteria will be employed. These data will be collected from participant questionnaires, such as quality of life per the QLQ-C30 version 3 or The Brief Pain Inventory, or clinical reports to supplement the primary outcome.
Timepoint [1] 324086 0
CT, MRI or PET (with CT function) scans for disease evaluation will take place every 9 weeks from first dose of study treatment until disease progression. For participants with brain metastases and disease evaluation, MRI scans will take place at every 6 weeks for 12 weeks from treatment initiation. Subsequently, participants will be followed by MRI every 9 weeks until disease progression.
Secondary outcome [1] 383718 0
Overall survival (OS) (death from any cause)
Timepoint [1] 383718 0
For the duration of the study. From the date of registration to date of death from any cause, or the date of last known follow-up alive.
Secondary outcome [2] 383720 0
Overall survival at 12 months
Timepoint [2] 383720 0
At 12 months from participant registration to date of death from any cause (or the date of last known vital status during follow up within 12 months from registration).
Secondary outcome [3] 383722 0
Progression free survival (PFS). PFS is defined as the interval from date of registration to the date of first evidence of disease progression or death from any cause, whichever occurs first. Participants who did not progress or die will be censored on the date of their last clinical assessment or tumour assessment. Disease progression is defined according to RECIST v1.1, RANO guidelines, or disease specific guidelines.
Timepoint [3] 383722 0
CT, MRI or PET (with CT function) scans for disease evaluation will take place every 9 weeks from first dose of study treatment until disease progression. For participants with brain metastases and disease evaluation, MRI scans will take place at every 6 weeks for 12 weeks from treatment initiation. Subsequently, participants will be followed by MRI every 9 weeks until disease progression.
Secondary outcome [4] 383724 0
Progression free survival (PFS) at 6 months. The proportion of participants on study who are alive and progression free at 6 months. The disease progression is defined according to RECIST v1.1, RANO guidelines, or disease specific guidelines.
Timepoint [4] 383724 0
At 6 months post participant registration via CT, MRI or PET (with CT function) scans of disease evaluation.
Secondary outcome [5] 383725 0
Safety and tolerability of treatment (rates of adverse events). All adverse events (AEs), including event grading as per NCI CTCAE criteria, will be captured from the first dose of study treatment until 30 days after cessation of study treatment. Reported AEs (eg. diarrhoea, gastrointestinal disorder) by participants will be documented by study site staff and subsequently transcript onto study electronic data capturing (EDC) system. In order to evaluate the safety and tolerability of the study treatment, the entered AE types, frequency and severity in the EDC will be analysed.
Timepoint [5] 383725 0
Adverse events will be recorded from the first dose of study treatment until 30 days after cessation of study treatment.
Secondary outcome [6] 383726 0
Health related quality of life during treatment. The EORTC QLQ-C30 and The Brief Pain Inventory Forms will be used to evaluate for this outcome.
Timepoint [6] 383726 0
Every 3 weeks from first dose of study treatment until participants stop treatment due to intolerable toxicity or withdraws for another reason apart from disease progression. After treatment discontinuation, the health related quality of life will be assessed at every 9 weeks until disease progression is recorded.

Statistical methods / analysis
A group of 32 patients will be recruited for 2 substudies containing 16 participants each. Participants in group 1 will have tumours harbouring HER2 amplification and participants in group 2 will have tumours with harbouring HER2 mutations.

As described in the framework protocol (ACTRN12616000908437), substudies with greater than or equal to 3 out of 16 responding patients, will in general be sufficiently interesting to investigate further. As a general rule, substudies with less than 3 out of 16 responses will be considered to not support the molecular hypothesis behind the substudy.

If some activity is recognised in a 16 patient substudy cohort but further information is needed to inform development of phase II testing, iterative substudies may be opened to enrich for patients that harbour a specific common biomarker or histologic cancer subtype. Each such iteration would constitute a new substudy for the purposes of this framework.

The sample size and guiding definitions of what constitutes an interesting signal are determined empirically as the investigators considered these numbers of patients as sufficient for signal-seeking purpose.

Summary
Brief summary
This is a substudy of the Cancer Molecular Screening and Therapeutics (MoST) Program, which is registered on ANZCTR with ID ACTRN12616000908437. This substudy will evaluate the activity of combination of tucatinib and trastuzumab in a population of participants with advanced tumours harbouring HER2 amplification or mutations.

Who is it for?
You may be eligible to join the study if you are aged 18 years and older, with pathologically confirmed advanced and/or metastatic solid cancer of any histologic type or an earlier diagnosis of a poor prognosis cancer. Your tumour will need to harbour HER2 amplification or mutations.

Study details:
Participants will receive 2 drugs, trastuzumab and tucatinib. Trastuzumab will given to participants by injection at 600mg every 3 weeks and tucatinib will be taken orally by participants at a dose of 300 mg twice daily. Both trastuzumab and tucatinib will be given to participants continuously as long as they and their doctor agree there is a benefit from treatment. Participants will undergo imaging assessments at 9 weekly intervals from first treatment until progression. For participants with brain metastases, MRI scan will be every 6 weeks up to 12 weeks, followed by every 9 weeks. Safety and tolerability of treatment will be assessed at 3 weekly intervals. Health related quality of life during treatment will be assessed at 3 weekly intervals and then every 9 weeks after end of treatment until progression.
We cannot guarantee that participants will receive any benefits from this study. This study is being carried out to improve the way we treat cancer patients who may have limited treatment options available to them. It is hoped that trastuzumab and tucatinib will be well tolerated and will improve outcomes for future patients, however, there may be no clear benefit from participation in this study.
