This phase I study aimed to determine tolerability and preliminary efficacy of single-agent alpelisib (BYL719) in Japanese patients with advanced solid malignancies. The primary objective of the study was to estimate the maximum tolerated dose (MTD) and/or recommended phase II dose (RP2D) of oral alpelisib in patients with advanced solid tumors who had progressed despite standard therapy. The expansion part included patients with PIK3CA mutation/amplification; safety, preliminary efficacy, pharmacokinetic (PK)/pharmacodynamic profile, and food effect on the PK profile of alpelisib at the MTD/RP2D were determined. Oral alpelisib was given as a single agent on a continuous 28-day treatment cycle once daily. Overall, 33 patients received alpelisib. Dose-limiting toxicities were observed in 2 patients in the escalation part (at 400 mg/day) and 1 patient in the expansion part (at 350 mg/day). The RP2D of alpelisib was determined as 350 mg/day based on overall safety profile in the dose escalation part and previous data from a Western population; the MTD was not determined. The most common all-grade treatment-suspected adverse events were hyperglycemia and maculopapular rash (48.5% each) and diarrhea (45.5%). The PK of alpelisib in the Japanese population was similar to that reported in the Western population. The overall response rate, disease control rate, and median progression-free survival at 350 mg/day were 3%, 57.6%, and 3.4 months, respectively. Alpelisib as single agent showed a favorable safety profile and encouraging preliminary efficacy in Japanese patients with advanced solid tumors.
