In pretreated patients with advanced renal cell carcinoma, CM082, an oral multikinase inhibitor designed to lower toxicity and enable combination with other therapies, was well tolerated when administered at a dose of 200 mg in combination with everolimus at 5 mg. This phase I clinical research was presented by Xinan Sheng, MD, of Beijing Cancer Hospital, at the 2017 American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO) Annual Meeting (Abstract 4575).

A total of 22 patients were treated at 3 dose levels of CM082—100 mg (n=4), 150 mg (n=3), and 200 mg (n=15)—in combination with everolimus at 5 mg. Dose-limiting toxicity was observed in one patient, and CM082 at 200 mg plus everolimus at 5 mg was chosen as the optimal biologic dose regimen. Partial responses were observed in 36% of patients, and durable stable disease (≥ 24 weeks) or partial response was achieved in 71% of patients.

The most common treatment-related adverse events (all grades) were proteinuria (96%), leukopenia (77%), neutropenia (59%), hypercholesterolemia (64%), anemia (50%), hypertension (46%), increased aspartate aminotransferase (41%), fatigue (45%), diarrhea (32%), hypertriglyceridemia (32%), and thrombocytopenia (20%).

The preliminary efficacy [of CM082 in combination with everolimus] warrants further evaluation, and the follow-up phase II/III study is underway,” the investigators concluded.
