STAMPEDE Systemic Therapy in Advancing or Metastatic Prostate cancer: Evaluation of Drug Efficacy Charlene Green STAMPEDE Clinical Trial Manager Sponsor number: MRC PR08 ISRCTN number: ISRCTN EUDRACT number: CTA number: /0026/

2 Design rationale STAMPEDE uses multi-arm multi-stage methodology
MAMS design permits rapid comparison and concurrent testing of treatments Currently using 3 investigational drugs Issues in applying multi-arm multi-stage (MAMS)- methodology to a clinical trial in prostate cancer:the MRC STAMPEDE trial. M.Sydes et al., Trials (Open access)

3 Trial Design R A N D O M I S E B C F G Control Arm
Hormone Therapy (HT): According to local practice HT + zoledronic acid: 4mg 3 weekly for 6 cycles and then 4mg 4 weekly for 2 years B HT + docetaxel: 75mg/m2 + Prednisolone bid continuously every 3 weeks for 6 cycles C HT + zoledronic acid + docetaxel: as above HT + celecoxib: Recruitment completed in April 2011 HT + zoledronic acid + celecoxib: Recruitment completed in April 2011 F HT + abiraterone: 1000mg OD (4 tablets) + Prednisolone 5mg OD G

4 Trial Design Stages Stage Outcome Measures Primary Secondary
Pilot Safety Feasibility Activity I-III Failure-free survival Overall survival Toxicity Skeletal-related events Efficacy IV Overall survival Failure-free survival Quality of life

5 Trial Design Update After the last interim analysis at the end of March 2011 the Trial Steering Committee decided to stop recruitment to arms D (HT + Celecoxib) and F (HT + Zoledronic Acid + Celecoxib) due to lack of sufficient activity. Arms A, B, C and E were also reviewed and continue unchanged. Arm G was added to the trial on 15th November 2011


7 Main Inclusion Criteria
Newly diagnosed high risk patients T3/4 N0 M0 with: At least two of:PSA≥40ng/ml or Gleason sum score 8-10 And intention to treat with radical radiotherapy (unless there is a contra-indication; exemption must be sought in advance of consent, after discussion with MRC CTU) Newly diagnosed metastatic or nodal disease Stage Tany N+ M0 or Tany Nany M+ Previously treated relapsing patients with either PSA  4ng/ml and rising with doubling time < 6 months PSA  20ng/ml N+ M+

8 Inclusion/Exclusion Criteria
Histological confirmation of prostate cancer Intention to treat with long term HT WHO PS 0,1 or 2 Adequate cardiovascular history No major dental extractions planned within next 2 years Please see protocol section 4.1 and 4.2 for complete details about inclusion and exclusion

9 Hormone Therapy Before Randomisation
It is preferable that patients are not started on hormones prior to randomisation but if they are then: No more than 12 weeks of LHRH before randomisation Orchidectomy should be performed no more than 12 weeks before randomisation No more than 14 weeks of anti-androgens before randomisation PSA measurement MUST be taken before HT treatment starts!

10 Screening Procedures Patients identified
CT or MRI of pelvis and abdomen Bone Scan Chest X-ray and ECG PSA Test Within 8 Weeks of Randomisation Blood Tests (See protocol section 4.3)


12 Hormone Therapy Three acceptable approaches: Bilateral orchidectomy
Total or subcapsular LHRH analogues Used according to local practice Prophylactic anti-androgens recommended Anti-androgen monotherapy not allowed

13 Zoledronic acid Zoledronic acid 4mg 15min IV infusion
Every 3 weeks for 6 treatments Then every 4 weeks Patients should also receive 500mg calcium oral supplement 400IU vitamin D oral supplement Available as a combination tablet Continues until the soonest of: Maximum of 2 years disease (including PSA) progression

14 Docetaxel Docetaxel 75mg/m2 Day 1 as 1hr IV infusion Max 160mg
repeated every 3 weeks for 6 cycles Patients should also receive Prednisolone 5mg bid daily for 21 days

15 Abiraterone Treatment
Recommended dose is 4 x 250mg tablets as a single daily dose. Taken with low dose prednisone or prednisolone. Recommended dose of steroid is 5mg Taking the tablets with food increases systemic exposure to abiraterone. Abiraterone must not be taken with food. It should be taken at least two hours after eating and no food should be eaten for at least one hour after taking abiraterone. Tablets should be swallowed whole with water. 15

16 Abiraterone - Monitoring
Patients on arm G require additional monitoring. Patients will require 2 weekly U+Es, LFTs and blood pressure measurement for the first 12 weeks In the event of a missed dose of either abiraterone, prednisone or prednisolone, treatment should be resumed the following day with the usual daily dose. Please refer to protocol appendix G

17 Radiotherapy

18 Radiotherapy N0M0 patients: Investigators should give radiotherapy (RT) to patients with N0M0 disease, in accordance with the recent data from the PR07 and SPCG trials If there is an intention to omit radiotherapy in patients with N0M0 disease this must be discussed with the MRC CTU before consent N+M0 patients: the benefit of radiotherapy in this group is at present uncertain. Investigators will be asked to state their intention with regard to planned radiotherapy in this group at randomisation Recommended type, timing and dose in protocol section 6 Intention to use RT stated at randomisation ensure no bias towards particular combinations of systemic therapy with radiotherapy RT given 6 to 9 months after randomisation and after any docetaxel toxicity settled

19 Radiotherapy For patients who receive a primary course of radiotherapy
Radiotherapy form Late radiotherapy toxicity form To be completed at 6, 12, 24 and 36 months after the radiotherapy.


21 Follow-up schedule 6 weekly 0 to 24 weeks 12 weekly up to 2 years
6 monthly up to 5 years Annually thereafter Follow-up dates will be sent to you on a treatment and follow-up schedule each time you randomise a patient. Please complete a follow-up form for each visit

22 Assessment of Treatment Failure - Arms A -E
Treatment should continue until the end of the course or until disease progression, classed as: Biochemical Local Lymph node Distant metastatic Skeletal related event Each type of progression only needs to be reported once. Please complete an ‘additional treatment update form’ if a patient receives additional treatment for a progression that you have already reported. At treatment failure, patients should stop trial treatment. Follow-up schedule continues the same.

23 Assessment of Treatment Failure – Arm G
For M+ patients, treatment should continue until clinical disease progression PSA progression + radiological progression (appearance of new lesions or progression of existing lesions) + clinical progression (defined as new cancer-related symptoms). It is accepted that these flexible criteria for stopping treatment with abiraterone are open to the investigator’s interpretation and discretion. Patients might continue treatment beyond the first progression event. All progressions must be reported as per the other arms.

24 Assessment of Treatment Failure – Arm G
For N0M0 patients or N+M0 patient undergoing radical radiotherapy Treatment duration = 2 years or disease progression as defined for M+ patients, whichever is the sooner. For patients with N+M0 disease not planned for radical radiotherapy, Treatment duration = to continue as for patients with M1 disease until disease progression Please call the trial team if you are unsure about whether a patient should stop taking abiraterone.

25 Defining PSA Nadir & PSA Failure
Lowest reported PSA level Between randomisation and 24 weeks PSA Failure Depends on baseline PSA measurement and PSA nadir 3 possible PSA failure categories, A, B and C

26 PSA Failure Categories

27 Defining PSA Relapse For patients in group A – Failed at time zero
For Patients in group B – Relapse occurs when PSA increases by 50% above nadir For Patients in group C – Relapse occurs when PSA increases by 50% above nadir or goes above 4ng/ml, whichever is greatest PSA progression letters are sent out every 3 months for patients whom we have receive their 24 week follow-up form. Alternatively please check appendix K for details of how to calculate the progression value.
