5 WARNINGS AND PRECAUTIONS

  • Hyperglycemia: Evaluate blood glucose levels prior to starting and at regular intervals during treatment. Withhold, reduce dose, or permanently discontinue TRUQAP based on severity. (2.2, 2.4, 5.1)
  • Diarrhea: TRUQAP caused diarrhea in most patients. Advise patients to increase oral fluids, start antidiarrheal treatment, and consult with a healthcare provider if diarrhea occurs while taking TRUQAP. Withhold, reduce dose, or permanently discontinue TRUQAP based on severity. (2.4, 5.2)
  • Cutaneous Adverse Reactions: Monitor for signs and symptoms of cutaneous adverse reactions. Withhold, reduce dose, or permanently discontinue TRUQAP based on severity. (2.4, 5.3)
  • Embryo-Fetal Toxicity: TRUQAP can cause fetal harm. Advise patients of potential risk to a fetus and to use effective contraception. Refer to the Full Prescribing Information of fulvestrant for pregnancy and contraception information. (5.4, 8.1, 8.3)

5.1 Hyperglycemia

Severe hyperglycemia, associated with ketoacidosis, occurred in patients treated with TRUQAP. The safety of TRUQAP has not been established in patients with Type I diabetes or diabetes requiring insulin. Patients with insulin dependent diabetes were excluded from CAPItello-291.

Hyperglycemia occurred in 18% of patients treated with TRUQAP. Grade 3 (insulin therapy initiated; hospitalization indicated) or Grade 4 (life-threatening consequences; urgent intervention indicated) hyperglycemia occurred in 2.8% of patients. Diabetic ketoacidosis occurred in 0.3% of patients and diabetic metabolic decompensation in 0.6% of patients. Dose reduction for hyperglycemia was required in 0.6% of patients and permanent discontinuation was required in 0.6% of patients. The median time to first occurrence of hyperglycemia was 15 days (range: 1 to 367).

In the 65 patients with hyperglycemia, 45% required treatment with anti-hyperglycemic medication (insulin in 15%, and metformin in 29%). Of the 29 patients who required anti-hyperglycemic medication during treatment with TRUQAP, 66% (19/29) remained on these medications at treatment discontinuation or last follow up.

Evaluate fasting blood glucose (FG) and hemoglobin A1C (HbA1c) and optimize blood glucose prior to treatment. Before initiating TRUQAP, inform patients about TRUQAP’s potential to cause hyperglycemia and to immediately contact their healthcare professional if hyperglycemia symptoms occur (e.g., excessive thirst, urinating more often than usual or greater amount of urine than usual, increased appetite with weight loss). Evaluate FG at least every two weeks during the first month and at least once a month starting from the second month, prior to the scheduled dose of TRUQAP. Monitor HbA1c every three months. Monitor FG more frequently during treatment with TRUQAP in patients with a medical history of diabetes mellitus and in patients with risk factors for hyperglycemia such as obesity (BMI ≥ 30), elevated FG of > 160 mg/dL (> 8.9 mmol/L), HbA1c at or above the upper limit of normal, use of concomitant systemic corticosteroids, or intercurrent infections.

If a patient experiences hyperglycemia after initiating treatment with TRUQAP, monitor FG as clinically indicated, and at least twice weekly until FG decreases to normal levels. During treatment with anti-hyperglycemic medication, continue monitoring FG at least once a week for 8 weeks, followed by once every 2 weeks and as clinically indicated. Consider consultation with a healthcare practitioner with expertise in the treatment of hyperglycemia and counsel patients on lifestyle changes.

Withhold, reduce dose, or permanently discontinue TRUQAP based on severity [see Dosage and Administration (2.4)].

5.2 Diarrhea

Severe diarrhea associated with dehydration occurred in patients who received TRUQAP.

Diarrhea occurred in 72% of patients. Grade 3 or 4 diarrhea occurred in 9% of patients. The median time to first occurrence was 8 days (range 1 to 519). In the 257 patients with diarrhea, 59% required anti-diarrheal medications to manage symptoms. Dose reductions were required in 8% of patients, and 2% of patients permanently discontinued TRUQAP due to diarrhea. In patients with Grade ≥ 2 diarrhea (n=93) with at least 1 grade improvement (n=89), median time to improvement from the first event was 4 days (range: 1 to 154).

Monitor patients for signs and symptoms of diarrhea. Advise patients to increase oral fluids and start antidiarrheal treatment at the first sign of diarrhea while taking TRUQAP. Withhold, reduce dose, or permanently discontinue TRUQAP based on severity [see Dosage and Administration (2.4)].

5.3 Cutaneous Adverse Reactions

Cutaneous adverse reactions, which can be severe, including erythema multiforme (EM), palmar-plantar erythrodysesthesia, and drug reaction with eosinophilia and systemic symptoms (DRESS), occurred in patients who received TRUQAP.

Cutaneous adverse reactions occurred in 58% of patients. Grade 3 or 4 cutaneous adverse reactions occurred in 17% of patients receiving TRUQAP. EM occurred in 1.7% of patients and DRESS occurred in 0.3% of patients. Dose reduction was required in 7% of patients and 7% of patients permanently discontinued TRUQAP due to cutaneous adverse reactions.

The median time to onset of cutaneous adverse reactions was 13 days (range 1 to 575 days). Among the 204 patients with cutaneous adverse reactions, 44% (90/204) required corticosteroid treatment. Of these, 37% (76/204) were treated with topical corticosteroids and 19% (39/204) with systemic corticosteroids. In patients with Grade ≥ 2 cutaneous adverse reaction (n= 116) with at least 1 grade improvement (n=104), median time to improvement from the first event was 12 days (range 2 to 544).

Monitor patients for signs and symptoms of cutaneous adverse reactions. Early consultation with a dermatologist is recommended. Withhold, reduce dose, or permanently discontinue TRUQAP based on severity [see Dosage and Administration (2.4)].

5.4 Embryo-Fetal Toxicity

Based on findings from animals and mechanism of action, TRUQAP can cause fetal harm when administered to a pregnant woman [see Clinical Pharmacology (12.1)]. In an animal reproduction study, oral administration of capivasertib to pregnant rats during the period of organogenesis caused adverse developmental outcomes, including embryo-fetal mortality, and reduced fetal weights at maternal exposures 0.7 times the human exposure (AUC) at the recommended dosage of 400 mg twice daily.

Advise pregnant women and females of reproductive potential of the potential risk to a fetus. Advise females of reproductive potential to use effective contraception during treatment with TRUQAP and for 1 month after the last dose. Advise male patients with female partners of reproductive potential to use effective contraception during treatment with TRUQAP and for 4 months after the last dose [see Use in Specific Populations (8.1, 8.3)].

TRUQAP is used in combination with fulvestrant. Refer to the Full Prescribing Information of fulvestrant for pregnancy and contraception information.

7 DRUG INTERACTIONS

  • Strong CYP3A Inhibitors: Avoid concomitant use. If concomitant use cannot be avoided, reduce TRUQAP dose. (2.5, 7.1)
  • Moderate CYP3A Inhibitors: Reduce TRUQAP dose. (2.5, 7.1)
  • Strong and Moderate CYP3A Inducers: Avoid concomitant use. (7.1)

7.1 Effects of Other Drugs on TRUQAP

Table 6 describes drug interactions where concomitant use of another drug affects TRUQAP.

Table 6: Drug Interactions with TRUQAP

Strong CYP3A Inhibitors

Clinical Impact

  • Capivasertib is a CYP3A substrate. Strong CYP3A inhibitors increase capivasertib exposure [see Clinical Pharmacology (12.3)], which may increase the risk of TRUQAP adverse reactions.

Prevention or Management

  • Avoid concomitant use with a strong CYP3A inhibitor. If concomitant use cannot be avoided, reduce the dose of TRUQAP and monitor patients for adverse reactions [see Dosage and Administration (2.5) ].

Moderate CYP3A Inhibitors

Clinical Impact

  • Capivasertib is a CYP3A substrate. Moderate CYP3A inhibitors increase capivasertib exposure [see Clinical Pharmacology (12.3)], which may increase the risk of TRUQAP adverse reactions.

Prevention or Management

  • When concomitantly used with moderate CYP3A inhibitor, reduce the dose of TRUQAP and monitor patients for adverse reactions [see Dosage and Administration (2.5) ].

Strong and Moderate CYP3A Inducers

Clinical Impact

  • Capivasertib is a CYP3A substrate. Strong and moderate CYP3A inducers decrease capivasertib exposure [see Clinical Pharmacology (12.3)], which may reduce the effectiveness of TRUQAP.

Prevention or Management

  • Avoid concomitant use of TRUQAP with strong or moderate CYP3A inducers.

8 USE IN SPECIFIC POPULATIONS

Lactation: Advise not to breastfeed. (8.2)

8.1 Pregnancy

Risk Summary

TRUQAP is used in combination with fulvestrant. Refer to the Full Prescribing Information of fulvestrant for pregnancy information.

Based on findings in animals and mechanism of action, TRUQAP can cause fetal harm when administered to a pregnant woman [see Clinical Pharmacology (12.1)]. There are no available data on the use of TRUQAP in pregnant women. In an animal reproduction study, oral administration of capivasertib to pregnant rats during the period of organogenesis caused adverse developmental outcomes, including embryo-fetal mortality and reduced fetal weights at maternal exposures 0.7 times the human exposure (AUC) at the recommended dose of 400 mg twice daily (see Data). Advise pregnant women and females of reproductive potential of the potential risk to a fetus.

The background risk of major birth defects and miscarriage for the indicated population is unknown. In the U.S. general population, the estimated background risk of major birth defects is 2% to 4% and of miscarriage is 15% to 20% of clinically recognized pregnancies in the U.S. general population.

Data

Animal Data

In an embryo-fetal development study, pregnant rats received oral doses of capivasertib up to 150 mg/kg/day during the period of organogenesis. Administration of capivasertib resulted in maternal toxicities (reduced body weight gain and food consumption, increased blood glucose) and adverse developmental outcomes, including embryo-fetal deaths (post-implantation loss), reduced fetal weights, and minor fetal visceral variations at a dose of 150 mg/kg/day (0.7 times the human exposure at the recommended dose of 400 mg twice daily based on AUC).

In a pre- and post-natal assessment, pregnant rats received oral doses of capivasertib up to 150 mg/kg/day from gestation day 6 through at least lactation day 6. Administration of 150 mg/kg/day resulted in reduced litter and pup weights.

8.2 Lactation

Risk Summary

TRUQAP is used in combination with fulvestrant. Refer to the Full Prescribing Information of fulvestrant for lactation information.

There are no data on the presence of capivasertib or its metabolites in human milk or their effects on milk production or the breastfed child. Capivasertib was detected in the plasma of suckling rat pups (see Data). Because of the potential for serious adverse reactions in a breastfed child, advise women not to breastfeed during treatment with TRUQAP.

Data

Animal Data

In a pre- and post-natal assessment, when capivasertib was administered to maternal rats during the lactation period, capivasertib was detected in plasma of suckling rat pups on lactation day 7 to 8 [see Use in Specific Populations (8.1)]. Plasma concentrations in pups were up to 0.6% of concentrations in maternal plasma in the 150 mg/kg/day group.

8.3 Females and Males of Reproductive Potential

TRUQAP is used in combination with fulvestrant. Refer to the Full Prescribing Information of fulvestrant for contraception and infertility information.

TRUQAP can cause fetal harm when administered to pregnant women [see Use in Specific Populations (8.1)].

Pregnancy Testing

Verify pregnancy status of females of reproductive potential prior to initiating TRUQAP [see Use in Specific Populations (8.1)].

Contraception

Females

Advise females of reproductive potential to use effective contraception during treatment with TRUQAP and for 1 month after the last dose.

Males

Advise male patients with female partners of reproductive potential to use effective contraception during treatment with TRUQAP and for 4 months after the last dose.

8.4 Pediatric Use

The safety and effectiveness of TRUQAP have not been established in pediatric patients.

8.5 Geriatric Use

Of the 355 patients who received TRUQAP in CAPItello-291, 115 (32%) patients were ≥ 65 years of age and 24 (7%) patients were ≥ 75 years of age. No overall differences in the efficacy of TRUQAP were observed between patients ≥ 65 years of age and younger patients. Analysis of the safety of TRUQAP comparing patients ≥ 65 years of age to younger patients suggest a higher incidence of Grade 3 to 5 adverse reactions (57% versus 36%), dosage reductions (30% versus 15%), dose interruptions (57% versus 30%), and permanent discontinuations (23% versus 8%), respectively.

8.6 Renal Impairment

12 CLINICAL PHARMACOLOGY

12.1 Mechanism of Action

Capivasertib is an inhibitor of all 3 isoforms of serine/threonine kinase AKT (AKT1, AKT2 and AKT3) and inhibits phosphorylation of downstream AKT substrates. AKT activation in tumors is a result of activation of upstream signaling pathways, mutations in AKT1, loss of phosphatase and tensin homolog (PTEN) function and mutations in the catalytic subunit alpha of phosphatidylinositol 3-kinase (PIK3CA).

In vitro, capivasertib reduced growth of breast cancer cell lines including those with relevant PIK3CA or AKT1 mutations or PTEN alteration. In vivo, capivasertib alone and in combination with fulvestrant inhibited tumor growth of mouse xenograft models including estrogen receptor positive breast cancer models with alterations in PIK3CA, AKT1, and PTEN.

12.2 Pharmacodynamics

Exposure-Response Relationships

The exposure-response relationship and time course of pharmacodynamic response for the effectiveness of capivasertib have not been fully characterized. Exposure-response relationships were observed for diarrhea (CTCAE Grade 2 to 4), rash (CTCAE Grade 2 to 4) and hyperglycemia (CTCAE Grades 3 or 4) at doses of 80 to 800 mg (0.2 to 2 times the approved recommended dosage).

Cardiac Electrophysiology

At the recommended TRUQAP dose, a mean increase in the QTc interval > 20 ms was not observed.

12.3 Pharmacokinetics

Capivasertib pharmacokinetic parameters are presented as the mean [%coefficient of variation (%CV)], unless otherwise specified. The capivasertib steady-state AUC is 8,069 h·ng/mL (37%) and Cmax is 1,371 ng/mL (30%). Steady-state concentrations are predicted to be attained on the 3rd and 4th dosing day of each week, starting week 2.

Capivasertib plasma concentrations are approximately 0.5% to 15% of the steady state Cmax during the off-dosing days.

Capivasertib AUC and Cmax are proportional with dose over a range of 80 to 800 mg (0.2 to 2 times the approved recommended dosage).

Absorption

Tmax is approximately 1-2 hours. The absolute bioavailability is 29%.

Effect of Food

No clinically meaningful differences in capivasertib pharmacokinetics were observed following administration of TRUQAP with a high-fat meal (approximately 1,000 kcal; fat 60%) or a low-fat meal (approximately 400 kcal; fat 26%).

Distribution

The steady state oral volume of distribution is 1,847 L (36%). Capivasertib plasma protein binding is 22% and the plasma-to-blood ratio is 0.71.

Elimination

The half-life is 8.3 hours and the steady-state oral clearance is 50 L/h (37% CV). Renal clearance was 21% of total clearance.

Metabolism

Capivasertib is primarily metabolized by CYP3A4 and UGT2B7.

Excretion

Following a single radiolabeled oral dose of 400 mg, the mean total recovery was 45% from urine and 50% from feces.

Specific Populations

No clinically significant differences in capivasertib pharmacokinetics were observed based on race/ethnicity (including White, Asian, Black, American Indian or Alaskan Native, and Native Hawaiian or Other Pacific Islander), sex (88% females), body weight (32 to 150 kg), age (26 to 87 years), mild hepatic impairment (bilirubin ≤ ULN and AST > ULN or bilirubin > 1 to 1.5x ULN), or mild to moderate renal impairment (CLcr 30 to 89 mL/min).

The effect of moderate (bilirubin > 1.5 to 3x ULN and any AST) hepatic impairment is not fully characterized.

TRUQAP has not been studied in patients with severe (bilirubin > 3x ULN and any AST) hepatic impairment or severe renal impairment (CLcr 15 to 29 mL/min).

13 NONCLINICAL TOXICOLOGY

13.1 Carcinogenesis, Mutagenesis, Impairment of Fertility

Carcinogenicity studies have not been conducted with capivasertib.

Capivasertib was genotoxic in the in vivo rat bone marrow micronucleus assay through an aneugenic mechanism. Capivasertib was not mutagenic in vitro in a bacterial reverse mutation (Ames) assay or mouse lymphoma gene mutation assay.

In repeat-dose toxicity studies up to 26 weeks duration in rats and 39 weeks duration in dogs, tubular degeneration in the testes and cellular debris in the epididymides were observed at oral capivasertib doses of 100 mg/kg/day in rats and 15 mg/kg/day in dogs (approximately 1 time the human exposure at the recommended dose of 400 mg twice daily based on AUC). In a male fertility study, capivasertib had no effect on fertility in male rats at oral doses up to 100 mg/kg/day following 10 weeks of treatment. Effects of capivasertib on female fertility have not been studied in animals.

14 CLINICAL STUDIES

The efficacy of TRUQAP with fulvestrant was evaluated in CAPItello-291 (NCT04305496), a randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled, multicenter trial that enrolled 708 adult patients with locally advanced (inoperable) or metastatic HR-positive, HER2-negative (defined as IHC 0 or 1+, or IHC 2+/ISH-) breast cancer of which 289 patients had tumors with eligible PIK3CA/AKT1/PTEN-alterations. Eligible PIK3CA/AKT1 activating mutations or PTEN loss of function alterations were identified in the majority of FFPE tumor specimens using FoundationOne®CDx next-generation sequencing (n=686). All patients were required to have progression on an aromatase inhibitor (AI) based treatment in the metastatic setting or recurrence on or within 12 months of completing (neo)adjuvant treatment with an AI. Patients could have received up to two prior lines of endocrine therapy and up to 1 line of chemotherapy for locally advanced (inoperable) or metastatic disease. Patients were excluded if they had clinically significant abnormalities of glucose metabolism (defined as patients with diabetes mellitus Type 1, Type 2, requiring insulin treatment, or HbA1c ≥8% (63.9 mmol/mol)).

Patients were randomized (1:1) to receive either 400 mg of TRUQAP (n=355) or placebo (n=353), given orally twice daily for 4 days followed by 3 days off treatment each week of 28-day treatment cycle. Fulvestrant 500 mg intramuscular injection was administered on cycle 1 days 1 and 15, and then at day 1 of each subsequent 28-day cycle. Patients were treated until disease progression, or unacceptable toxicity. Randomization was stratified by presence of liver metastases (yes vs. no), prior treatment with CDK4/6 inhibitors (yes vs. no) and geographical region (region 1: US, Canada, Western Europe, Australia, and Israel vs region 2: Latin America, Eastern Europe and Russia vs Region 3: Asia).

The major efficacy outcomes were investigator-assessed progression-free survival (PFS) in the overall population, and in the population of patients whose tumors have PIK3CA/AKT1/PTEN-alterations evaluated according to Response Evaluation Criteria in Solid Tumors (RECIST), version 1.1. Additional efficacy outcome measures were overall survival (OS), investigator assessed objective response rate (ORR) and duration of response (DoR).

A statistically significant difference in PFS was observed in the overall population and the population of patients whose tumors have PIK3CA/AKT1/PTEN-alteration. An exploratory analysis of PFS in the 313 (44%) patients whose tumors did not have a PIK3CA/AKT1/PTEN-alteration showed a HR of 0.79 (95% CI: 0.61, 1.02), indicating that the difference in the overall population was primarily attributed to the results seen in the population of patients whose tumors have PIK3CA/AKT1/PTEN-alteration.

Of the 289 patients whose tumors were PIK3CA/AKT1/PTEN-altered, the median age was 59 years (range 34 to 90); female (99%); White (52%), Asian (29%), Black (1%), American Indian/Alaska Native (0.7%), other races (17%) and 9% were Hispanic/Latino. Eastern Cooperative Oncology Group (ECOG) performance status was 0 (66%) or 1 (34%), and 18% were premenopausal or perimenopausal. Seventy-six percent of patients had an alteration in PIK3CA, 13% had an alteration in AKT1, and 17% had an alteration in PTEN. All patients received prior endocrine-based therapy (100% AI based treatment and 44% received tamoxifen). Seventy-one percent of patients were previously treated with a CDK4/6 inhibitor and 18% received prior chemotherapy for locally advanced (inoperable) or metastatic disease.

Efficacy results for PIK3CA/AKT1/PTEN-altered subgroup are presented in Table 7 and Figure 1. Results from the blinded independent review committee (BICR) assessment were consistent with the investigator assessed PFS results. Overall survival results were immature at the time of the PFS analysis (30% of the patients died).
