Abstract Text Investigate the safety and tolerability of AZD5363 and define a recommended dose for evaluation in Japanese patients with advanced solid malignancies.AZD5363 was administered orally as a single dose, and then the dose was escalated to twice daily (bid) in separate continuous (every day) and intermittent (4 days on, 3 days off [4/3] or 2 days on, 5 days off [2/5]) dosing schedules to reach recommended doses defined by dose-limiting toxicity (DLT). Doses for continuous, 4/3, and 2/5 intermittent dosing schedules were 80-400, 360-480, and 640 mg, respectively, and were informed by results from an equivalent study in Caucasian patients.Forty-one patients received AZD5363. DLTs were only experienced with continuous dosing. 97.6 % of patients reported at least one adverse event (AE); most common were diarrhea (78.0 %), hyperglycemia (68.3 %), nausea (56.1 %), and maculopapular rash (56.1 %). Grade ≥3 AEs were reported by 63.4 % of patients. Exposure of AZD5363 was generally dose proportional for both single and multiple doses. Single-dose pharmacokinetics of AZD5363 was generally predictive of multiple-dose pharmacokinetics. Confirmed partial responses were reported by two patients, both of whom were Akt1 (E17K) mutation positive. One patient in the 480 mg bid 4/3 dosing cohort maintained partial response for >2 years.Intermittent dosing of AZD5363 was more tolerable than continuous dosing. 480 mg bid intermittent 4/3 dosing for AZD5363 monotherapy was selected for further investigation. Preliminary evidence of antitumor activity was observed. Akt1 (E17K) is a potent driver mutation that may predict clinical response to AZD5363.


  • 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.

AKT1 E17K Advanced Solid Tumor sensitive Capivasertib Phase I Actionable In a Phase I trial, Capivasertib (AZD5363) demonstrated safety and preliminary antitumor activity in patients with advanced solid tumors, resulted in stable disease in 27% (10/37) of patients and partial response in two patients, both of whom harbored an AKT1 E17K mutation (PMID: 26931343; NCT01353781). 26931343 detail...
