Abstract Text Purpose: Epithelial ovarian cancer (EOC) is a molecularly diverse disease. MEK inhibition targets tumors harboring MAPK pathway alterations and enhances paclitaxel-induced apoptosis in EOC. This phase Ib study evaluated the MEK inhibitor binimetinib combined with paclitaxel in patients with platinum-resistant EOC.Patients and Methods: Patients received intravenous weekly paclitaxel with oral binimetinib in three different administration schedules. Outcomes were assessed by RECIST and CGIC CA-125 response criteria. Tumor samples were analyzed using next-generation sequencing.Results: Thirty-four patients received ≥1 binimetinib dose. A 30-mg twice-a-day continuous or 45-mg twice-a-day intermittent binimetinib dose was deemed the recommended phase II dose (RP2D) in combination with 80 mg/m2 i.v. weekly paclitaxel. Rate of grade 3/4 adverse events was 65%. The best overall response rate was 18%-one complete (CR) and four partial responses (PR)-among 28 patients with RECIST-measurable disease. Eleven patients achieved stable disease (SD), yielding a clinical benefit rate (CR+PR+SD) of 57%. Response rates, per both RECIST and CA-125 criteria, were highest in the 45-mg twice-a-day continuous cohort and lowest in the 45-mg twice-a-day intermittent cohort. All four evaluable patients with MAPK pathway-altered tumors experienced clinical benefit.Conclusions: The combination of binimetinib and intravenous weekly paclitaxel was tolerable in this patient population. The RP2D of binimetinib in combination with paclitaxel was 30 mg twice a day as a continuous or 45 mg twice a day as an intermittent dose. Although response rates were modest, a higher clinical benefit rate was seen in patients harboring alterations affecting the MAPK pathway. Clin Cancer Res; 24(22); 5525-33. ©2018 AACR.


  • Case insensitive filtering will display rows where any text in any cell matches the filter term
  • Simple literal full or partial string matches
  • Separate multiple filter terms with a spaces, order doesn't matter (a b c and c b a are equivalent )
  • Filtering will only apply to rows that are already loaded on the page, filtering has no impact on query parameters
  • Use quotes to match a longer phrase which contains spaces "mtor c1483f"


  • Generally, the default sort order for tables is set to be first column ascending, however, specific tables may set a different default sort order.
  • Click on any column header arrows to sort by that column
  • Hold down the Shift key and click multiple columns to sort by more than one column, be sure to set ascending or descending order for a given column, before moving on to the next column.

Unknown unknown ovary epithelial cancer not applicable Binimetinib + Paclitaxel Phase Ib/II Actionable In a Phase Ib trial, combination therapy with Taxol (paclitaxel) and Mektovi (binimetinib) was tolerable and resulted in an objective response rate of 18% (5/28, 1 complete response, 4 partial responses) and a clinical benefit rate of 57% (16/28, best overall response of stable disease or better) in patients with platinum resistant/refractory epithelial ovarian cancer, and clinical benefit was observed in all patients with MAPK pathway alterations (n=4) (PMID: 29844129; NCT01649336). 29844129
