This is an open-label, multi-centre, Phase Ib study of AZD1775 designed to assess the safety, tolerability, pharmacokinetics, and anti-tumour activity of AZD1775 monotherapy in patients with advanced solid tumours.

Official Title

A Phase Ib, Open-Label, Multi-Centre Study to Assess the Safety, Tolerability, Pharmacokinetics, and Anti-tumour Activity of AZD1775 Monotherapy in Patients With Advanced Solid Tumours


This study is being conducted in two parts, designated Parts A and B. Part A is a safety lead-in consisting of a cohort of approximately 12 patients with advanced solid tumours.

Part B expansion cohorts will investigate AZD1775 monotherapy in advanced tumour types with molecular biomarkers of interest. The tumour types to be evaluated are: 1) ovarian cancer (BRCA1/2 mutation [PARP-failures]), 2) ovarian cancer (BRCA wild-type) with more than three prior lines of treatment, 3) triple negative breast cancer (TNBC), and 4) small-cell lung cancer (SCLC).

Open to people ages 18-99

  1. Age ≥18
  2. Previous chemotherapy for recurrent or metastatic disease.
  3. Measurable disease is required for Part B expansion cohorts according to RECIST v1.1 criteria.
  4. Radiation therapy completed at least 7 days prior to start of study treatment and patients must have recovered from any acute adverse effects.
  5. ECOG Performance Status (PS) score of 0-1.
  6. Baseline laboratory values as follows:
  7. ANC ≥1500/μL
  8. Hgb ≥9 g/dL
  9. Platelets ≥100,000/μL
  10. ALT and AST ≤3 x ULN or ≤5 x ULN if known hepatic metastases.
  11. Serum bilirubin WNL or ≤1.5 x the ULN in patients with liver metastases; or total bilirubin ≤3.0 x ULN with direct bilirubin WNL in patients with well documented Gilbert's Syndrome.
  12. Serum creatinine ≤1.5 x the ULN and a calculated creatinine clearance (CrCl) ≥45 mL/min by the Cockcroft-Gault method.
  13. Negative serum or urine pregnancy test within 3 days prior to start of study treatment.
  14. Fertile male patients willing to use at least one medically acceptable form of birth control for the duration of the study and for 2 weeks after treatment stops.
  15. Predicted life expectancy ≥12 weeks.

Inclusion Criteria Specific for Part A:

  1. Histologically or cytologically documented, locally advanced or metastatic solid tumour, excluding lymphoma, for which standard therapy does not exist or has proven ineffective or intolerable.
  2. Has agreed to the collection of archival tumour tissue or recent tumour biopsy tissue, it taken for routine clinical purposes at baseline if archival tissue is not available, for molecular biomarker analyses.

Inclusion Criteria Specific for Part B:

  1. Ovarian cancer defined as a histologically confirmed diagnosis of epithelial ovarian, fallopian tube, or primary peritoneal cancer refractory to standard therapies of for which no standard therapy exists. Confirmed BRCA1 or BRCA2 mutation from a prior test. Patient progressed while receiving and/or following treatment with a PARP-inhibitor for advanced disease (recurrent or metastatic.
  2. Ovarian cancer confirmed BRCA wild-type from a prior test.
  3. Triple-negative breast cancer (TNBC) defined as histologically confirmed diagnosis of breast cancer and must have received at least 1 chemotherapy-containing regimen for advanced disease (recurrent or metastatic). Tumour must be triple-negative, defined as minimal or no expression of estrogen and progesterone receptors [<10% of cells positive by immunohistochemistry (IHC)], and minimal or no expression of HER2 (IHC staining 0 or 1+ or FISH-).
  4. Small-cell lung cancer (SCLC) defined as a histologically confirmed diagnosis of SCLC and must have received at least 1 chemotherapy-containing regimen for advanced disease (recurrent or metastatic).

You CAN'T join if...

  10. . Serious active infection, or serious underlying medical condition.
  11. . Presence of other active invasive cancers. 13. Psychological, familial, sociological, or geographical conditions that do not permit compliance with the protocol.
