      Trial Summary

      This is a Phase Ib/II, open-label, multicenter, randomized umbrella study in participants with breast cancer. Cohort 1 will focus on participants with inoperable, locally advanced or metastatic, estrogen receptor (ER)-positive, HER2-negative breast cancer who had disease progression during or following treatment with a cyclin-dependent kinase 4/6 inhibitor (CDK4/6i; e.g., palbociclib, ribociclib, abemaciclib) in the first- or second-line setting. Cohort 2 will focus on inoperable, locally advanced or metastatic, ER-positive, HER2-positive breast cancer with prior disease progression on trastuzumab-and-taxane- and ado-trastuzumab emtansine-based therapies. The study is designed with the flexibility to open new treatment arms as new treatments become available, close existing treatment arms that demonstrate minimal clinical activity or unacceptable toxicity, or modify the patient population. During Stage 1, participants in each cohort will be randomly assigned to treatment arms. Participants in the control or experimental arms who experience disease progression (as determined by the investigator according to RECIST v1.1) or unacceptable toxicity during Stage 1 will be given the option of receiving a different treatment combination during Stage 2, provided they meet eligibility criteria and a treatment arm is open for enrollment. No Stage 2 treatment is currently available.

      How does the Morpheus Breast Cancer clinical trial work? 

      This clinical trial is recruiting people who have a type of disease called breast cancer. In order to take part, patients must have inoperable, locally advanced or metastatic, estrogen receptor (ER)-positive, human epidermal growth factor receptor 2 (HER2)-negative breast cancer.

      The purpose of this clinical trial is to compare the effects, good or bad, of abemaciclib, ipatasertib, inavolisib, ribociclib or everolimus plus giredestrant versus giredestrant alone on patients with ER+, HER2- breast cancer. In this clinical trial, you will get either abemaciclib, ipatasertib, inavolisib, ribociclib or everolimus  plus giredestrant or giredestrant alone. 

      The study is designed with the flexibility to open new treatment arms, as new treatments become available, close existing treatment arms that demonstrate minimal clinical activity or unacceptable toxicity, or modify the patient population.

      If you think this clinical trial may be suitable for you and would like to take part, please talk to your doctor. If your doctor thinks that you might be able to take part in this clinical trial, he/she may refer you to the closest clinical trial doctor. They will give you all the information you need to make your decision about taking part in the clinical trial. You can also find the clinical trial locations on this page. You will have some further tests to make sure you will be able to take the treatments given in this clinical trial. Some of these tests or procedures may be part of your regular medical care. They may be done even if you do not take part in the clinical trial. If you have had some of the tests recently, they may not need to be done again. Before starting the clinical trial, you will be told about any risks and benefits of taking part in the trial. You will also be told what other treatments are available so that you may decide if you still want to take part. While taking part in the clinical trial, both men and women (if you are not currently pregnant but can become pregnant) will need to either not have heterosexual intercourse or take contraceptive medication for safety reasons.

      What treatment will I be given if I join this clinical trial?

      Giredestrant, given as a pill once a day for each 28 day cycle, alone or in combination with any one of the following drugs:

      • Abemaciclib, given as a pill twice a day for each 28 day cycle, or
      • Ipatasertib, given as a pill once a day on days 1-21 for each 28 day cycle, or
      • Inavolisib, given as a pill once a day for each 28 day cycle, or
      • Ribociclib, given as a pill once a day on days 1-21 for each 28 day cycle, or
      • Everolimus, given as a pill once a day for each 28 day cycle

      Each group may open and close for recruitment at different times. Your chances of being placed in any group depends on how many groups are open at a given time, with no more than 35 in 100 chance of being placed in the control group.

      How often will I be seen in follow-up appointments, and for how long? 

      You will be given the clinical trial treatment for as long as it can help you. You are free to stop this treatment at any time. After being given treatment, you will still be seen regularly by the clinical trial doctor every 28 days. Occasionally, clinic visits may occur more frequently. These hospital visits will include checks to see how you are responding to the treatment and any side effects that you may be having. 

      What happens if I am unable to take part in this clinical trial? 

      If this clinical trial is not suitable for you, you will not be able to take part. Your doctor may suggest other clinical trials that you may be able to take part in or other treatments that you can be given. You will not lose access to any of your regular care.
