Schéma : Brief Summary

The combination of chemotherapy with PD-1 immune checkpoint blockade agents demonstrated promising results especially in the neo-adjuvant and early metastatic setting in TNBC. However, a substantial proportion of patients do not derive benefit from this approach.
CD73 is an adenosine-generating enzyme overexpressed in several cancers and associated with poor prognosis and reduced anti-tumor immunity in TNBC. Monoclonal antibodies directed against CD73 could help to reprogram the tumor microenvironement by decreasing the adenosine mediated immunosuppression, particularly as a synergistic immunotherapeutic combination with immune checkpoint blockade.
The SYNERGY trial investigates the role of an anti-CD73 (MEDI9447) in a randomized phase II trial evaluating the efficacy and safety of the combination of chemotherapy (paclitaxel + carboplatin) with immunotherapy (durvalumab [anti-PD-L1] +/- MEDI9447 [anti-CD73]) in previously untreated locally recurrent inoperable or metastatic TNBC.
A large translational research program is planned including baseline and dynamic biomarkers

Critères d'inclusion et de non-inclusion
Critères d'inclusion : e of ≥ 18 years
Life expectancy of a least 12 weeks
Body weight above 35kg
The locally recurrent or metastatic relapse must be histologically confirmed TNBC in patients not previously treated with systemic treatment and which cannot be treated with curative intent. Newly diagnosed patients with de-novo metastatic disease are eligible
Estrogen receptor (ER) and progesterone receptor (PR) negativity (< 1% positive staining cells in the invasive tumour) determined locally using IHC per ASCO/CAP criteria58
Human epidermal growth factor receptor 2 (HER2) negativity (negative IHC staining [score 0 or 1] or negative fluorescence in situ hybridization [FISH] based on the ASCO/CAP guidelines and recommendations from 2013) and determined locally59 Note: patients initially diagnosed with hormone receptor-positive and/or HER2-positive breast cancer are eligible if the tumor biopsy obtained from a local recurrence or distant metastasis site confirms the TNBC disease.
Confirmed tumour PD-L1 and CD73 IHC assessment as documented through central testing of a representative tumour tissue specimen for stratification purposes (only for phase II)
Provision of recurrence/metastatic tissue samples (at least 1 FFPE [Formalin-Fixed paraffin-embedded] tumour tissue and 1 frozen core as a priority, if feasible 2 additional fresh tumour tissue cores should be collected too) including those from resections, core-needle biopsies or excisional, incisional, punch, or forceps biopsies. Fine-needle aspiration (FNA) (defined as samples that do not preserve tissue architecture and yield cell suspension and/or smears), brushing, and cell pellets from cytology samples are not acceptable. If the patient has just performed a metastatic lesion biopsy, the patient is eligible only if an archived FFPE tissue sample (or at least 20 unstained slides, freshly cut for the purposes of the study) of the metastatic lesion is available. In this situation only, frozen/fresh cores are not mandatory. In case of a de-novo metastatic disease, a biopsy of the primary lesion is acceptable.
Provision of an archived FFPE diagnostic biopsy or surgical primary tumour sample (or at least 20 unstained slides, freshly cut for the purposes of the study). In case of neoadjuvant treatment (before surgery), the diagnostic biopsy is preferable.
At least 6 months elapsed between the completion of treatment with curative intent (e.g., the date of primary breast tumour surgery or the date of last adjuvant chemotherapy administration, whichever occurred last) and first documented local or distant disease recurrence (NOTE: for de-novo metastatic disease not applicable)
At least one measurable disease based on RECIST v1.1. Tumour lesions in a previously irradiated area are considered measurable, if progression has been demonstrated in such lesions
Adequate organ function:

Absolute neutrophil count (ANC) ≥ 1500/μl (without the addition of growth factors)
Platelets [PLT] ≥ 100000/μl (without the addition of growth factors/prior transfusions)
Hemoglobin (Hb) ≥ 10 g/dl (without the addition of growth factors/prior transfusions)
Creatinine ≤ 1.5 x upper limit of normal (ULN) OR estimated glomerular filtration rate (eGFR) ≥ 60 ml/min as calculated using the method standard for the institution. If eGFR is lower than 60 ml/min, a 24-hour urine creatinine clearance can be performed to rule out an underestimation of the eGFR.
Total serum bilirubin (TBL) ≤ 1.5 x ULN unless the subject has documented Gilbert syndrome in which case up to 3 x ULN is acceptable
Aspartate and alanine aminotransferase (AST/ALT) ≤ 2.5 x ULN unless liver metastases are present, in which case it must be ≤ 5 x ULN
International Normalized Ratio (INR) ≤ 1.5 x ULN unless subject is receiving anticoagulant therapy as long as INR and activated partial thromboplastin time (aPTT) is within therapeutic range of intended use of anticoagulants
Performance status (PS) of 0 or 1 on the ECOG Performance scale
Female subjects of childbearing potential (FSCP) must be willing to use one highly effective method of contraception (detailed at protocol section 6.6.) for the course of the study through 6 months after the last study drug administration. FSCP must have a negative serum pregnancy test done within the 28 days before treatment start. FSCP are those who have not been surgically sterilized or have not been free of menses for at least 1 year.
Absence of any psychological, familial, sociological or geographical condition potentially hampering compliance with the study protocol and follow-up schedule; those conditions should be discussed with the patient before registration in the trial
Absence of any concurrent illness that would preclude the evaluation of safety
