A Phase 3, Randomized, Double-blind, Multicenter Study of Dostarlimab (TSR-042) Plus Carboplatin-paclitaxel Versus Placebo Plus Carboplatin-paclitaxel in Patients With Recurrent or Primary Advanced Endometrial Cancer (RUBY)


This is a two-part study. Part 1 is to evaluate the efficacy and safety of dostarlimab plus carboplatin-paclitaxel followed by dostarlimab versus placebo plus carboplatin-paclitaxel followed by placebo.  Part 2 is to evaluate the efficacy and safety of dostarlimab plus carboplatin-paclitaxel followed by dostarlimab plus niraparib versus placebo plus carboplatin-paclitaxel followed by placebo in participants with recurrent or primary advanced (Stage III or IV) endometrial cancer. Part 1 has completed enrollment, and part 2 is open for enrollment. Both parts consist of a screening period, Treatment period, an end of treatment (EOT) visit, a safety follow-up visit, and a survival assessment period. In part 2, participants will be randomized 1:2 to receive either carboplatin/paclitaxel/placebo or dostarlimab/carboplatin/paclitaxel followed by dostarlimab/niraparib or placebo iv/oral maintenance.

Core eligibility

Note: This is only a partial list of eligibility criteria.

Accepting patients who meet the following criteria:

Parts 1 and Part 2:

  • Female participant is at least 18 years of age

Lesions that are equivocal or can be representative of post-operative change should be biopsied and confirmed for the presence of tumor; b) Participant has primary stage IIIC1 disease with carcinosarcoma, clear cell, serous, or mixed histology (containing >=10 percent carcinosarcoma, clear cell, or serous histology) regardless of presence of evaluable or measurable disease on imaging; c) Participant has primary stage IIIC2 or stage IV disease regardless of the presence of evaluable or measurable disease; d) Participant has first recurrent disease and is naïve to systemic anticancer therapy; e) Participant has received prior neo-adjuvant/adjuvant systemic anticancer therapy and had a recurrence or PD >=6 months after completing treatment (first recurrence only).
  • Participant has an Eastern Cooperative Oncology Group (ECOG) performance status of 0 or 1.
  • Participant has adequate organ function.

Part 2 only:

  • Participants must have normal blood pressure (BP) or adequately treated and controlled hypertension (systolic BP <=140 millimeter of mercury (mmHg) and diastolic BP <=90 mmHg).
  • Participants must be able to take medication orally, by mouth (PO).

Excluding patients who meet these criteria:

Parts 1 and Part 2:

  • Participant has received neo-adjuvant/adjuvant systemic anticancer therapy for primary Stage III or IV disease and: a) has not had a recurrence or PD prior to first dose on the study OR b) has had a recurrence or PD within 6 months of completing systemic anticancer therapy treatment prior to first dose on the study.
  • Participant has had >1 recurrence of endometrial cancer.
  • Participant has received prior therapy with an anti-programmed cell death protein 1 (anti-PD-1), anti-PD-ligand 1 (anti-PD-L1), or anti-PD-ligand 2 (anti-PD-L2) agent.
  • Participant has received prior anticancer therapy (chemotherapy, targeted therapies, hormonal therapy, radiotherapy, or immunotherapy) within 21 days or <5 times the half-life of the most recent therapy prior to Study Day 1, whichever is shorter.
  • Participant has a concomitant malignancy, or participant has a prior non-endometrial invasive malignancy who has been disease-free for <3 years or who received any active treatment in the last 3 years for that malignancy. Non-melanoma skin cancer is allowed.
  • Participant has known uncontrolled central nervous system metastases, carcinomatosis meningitis, or both.
  • Participant has not recovered (i.e., to Grade <=1 or to Baseline) from cytotoxic therapy induced AEs or has received transfusion of blood products (including platelets or red blood cells) or administration of colony-stimulating factors (including granulocyte colony-stimulating factor [G-CSF], granulocyte macrophage colony-stimulating factor [GM-CSF], or recombinant erythropoietin) within 21 days prior to the first dose of study drug.
  • Participant is considered a poor medical risk due to a serious, uncontrolled medical disorder, nonmalignant systemic disease, or active infection requiring systemic therapy.
  • Participant has received, or is scheduled to receive, a live vaccine within 30 days before first dose of study treatment, during study treatment, and for up to 180 days after receiving the last dose of study treatment.

Part 2 only:

  • Participant has clinically significant cardiovascular disease
  • Participant has any known history or current diagnosis of myelodysplastic syndrome (MDS) or acute myeloid leukemia (AML).
  • Participant is at increased bleeding risk due to concurrent conditions.
  • Participant has participated in Part 1 of this study.
