A Study to Evaluate the Efficacy and Safety of Pemigatinib Versus Chemotherapy in Unresectable or Metastatic Cholangiocarcinoma
Age: 18 years - 66+
Healthy Subjects: No
Study Phase: Phase 3
Recruitment Status: Recruiting
Start Date: June 03, 2019
End Date: June 28, 2026
- Male and female participants at least 18 years of age at the time of signing the informed consent form (ICF); a legally minor participant from Japan needs written parental consent.
- Histologically or cytologically confirmed cholangiocarcinoma that is previously untreated and considered unresectable and/or metastatic (Stage IV per the American Joint Committee on Cancer (AJCC) Cancer Staging Manual).
- Radiographically measurable or evaluable disease by CT or MRI per RECIST v1.1 criteria.
- Eastern Cooperative Oncology Group performance status 0 to 1.
- Documented FGFR2 rearrangement.
- Willingness to avoid pregnancy or fathering children.
- Received prior anticancer systemic therapy for unresectable and/or metastatic disease (not including adjuvant/neo-adjuvant treatment completed at least 6 months prior to enrollment, and participants that have received treatment for locally advanced disease with trans-arterial chemoembolization or selective internal radiation therapy, if clear evidence of radiological progression is observed before enrollment).
- Child-Pugh B and C.
- Toxicities related to prior therapy(ies) must be Common Terminology Criteria for Adverse Events (CTCAE) v5.0 ≤ Grade 1 at the time of screening.
- Concurrent anticancer therapy, other than the therapies being tested in this study.
- Participant is a candidate for potentially curative surgery.
- Current evidence of clinically significant corneal (including but not limited to bullous/band keratopathy, corneal abrasion, inflammation/ulceration, and keratoconjunctivitis) or retinal disorder (including but not limited to central serous retinopathy, macular/retinal degeneration, diabetic retinopathy, retinal detachment) as confirmed by ophthalmologic examination.
- Radiation therapy administered within 4 weeks of enrollment/randomization/first dose of study treatment.
- Known central nervous system (CNS) metastases or history of uncontrolled seizures.
- Known additional malignancy that is progressing or requires active treatment (exceptions: basal cell carcinoma of the skin, squamous cell carcinoma of the skin, or in situ cervical cancer that has undergone potentially curative therapy).
- Laboratory values at screening outside the protocol-defined range.
- History of calcium and phosphate hemostasis disorder or systemic mineral imbalance with ectopic calcification of soft tissues (exception: commonly observed calcifications in soft tissues, such as the skin, kidney, tendons or vessels due to injury, disease, and aging, in the absence of systemic mineral imbalance).
- Significant gastrointestinal disorders that could interfere with absorption, metabolism, or excretion of pemigatinib.
- Clinically significant or uncontrolled cardiac disease.
- History or presence of an abnormal ECG, which, in the investigator's opinion, is clinically meaningful.
- Chronic or current active infectious disease requiring systemic antibiotics or antifungal or antiviral treatment within 2 weeks prior to enrollment (participants with asymptomatic chronic infections on prophylactic treatment are allowed). Note: HIV-positive participants are allowed if all of the following criteria are met: CD4+ count ≥ 300/µL, undetectable viral load, receiving antiretroviral therapy that does not interact with study drug, and no HIV/AIDS-associated opportunistic infection in the last 12 months.
- Use of any potent CYP3A4 inhibitors or inducers or moderate CYP3A4 inducers within 14 days or 5 half-lives (whichever is longer) before the first dose of study treatment. Note: Moderate CYP3A4 inhibitors are not prohibited
- Known hypersensitivity or severe reaction to pemigatinib, gemcitabine, cisplatin, or their excipients.
- Inadequate recovery from toxicity and/or complications from a major surgery before starting therapy.
