Abstract Text Preclinical studies have demonstrated synergy between poly(ADP-ribose) polymerase (PARP) and phosphatidylinositol-3-kinase (PI3K)/AKT pathway inhibitors in BRCA1 and BRCA2 (BRCA1/2)-deficient and BRCA1/2-proficient tumors. We conducted an investigator-initiated phase I trial utilizing a prospective intrapatient dose-escalation design to assess two schedules of capivasertib (AKT inhibitor) with olaparib (PARP inhibitor) in 64 patients with advanced solid tumors. Dose expansions enrolled germline BRCA1/2-mutant tumors, or BRCA1/2-wildtype cancers harboring somatic DNA damage response (DDR) or PI3K/AKT pathway alterations. The combination was well-tolerated. Recommended phase 2 doses for the two schedules were: olaparib 300mg BID with either capivasertib 400mg BID 4-days-on, 3-days-off, or capivasertib 640mg BID 2-days-on, 5-days-off. Pharmacokinetics were dose-proportional. Pharmacodynamic studies confirmed pGSK3β suppression, increased pERK and decreased BRCA1 expression. 25 (44.6%) of 56 evaluable patients achieved clinical benefit (RECIST CR/PR or stable disease ≥4 months), including patients with tumors harboring germline BRCA1/2-mutations and BRCA1/2-wildtype cancers with or without DDR and PI3K/AKT pathway alterations.


  • 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.
