monarcHER: A Phase 2, Randomized, Multicenter, 3-Arm, Open-Label Study to Compare the Efficacy of Abemaciclib Plus Trastuzumab With or Without Fulvestrant to Standard-of-Care Chemotherapy of Physician's Choice Plus Trastuzumab in Women With HR+, HER2+ Locally Advanced or Metastatic Breast Cancer

The purpose of this study is to evaluate the effectiveness of abemaciclib plus trastuzumab with or without fulvestrant or chemotherapy in women with hormone receptor positive (HR+), human epidermal growth factor receptor 2 positive (HER2+) locally advanced or metastatic breast cancer after prior exposure to at least two HER2-directed therapies for advanced disease.

Inclusion Criteria:

•Diagnosis of HR+, HER2+ breast cancer (BC)
•Unresectable locally advanced recurrent BC or metastatic BC
•Adequate tumor tissue available and collected prior to randomization
•Measurable and/or non-measurable disease according to Response Evaluation Criteria in Solid Tumors (RECIST) version 1.1
•Previously received: at least 2 HER2-directed therapies for advanced disease; participant must have received trastuzumab emtansine (T-DM1) in any disease setting
•Must have received a taxane in any disease setting
•May have received any endocrine therapy (excluding fulvestrant)
•Have postmenopausal status
•Performance status (PS) of 0 to 1 on the Eastern Cooperative Oncology Group scale
•Left ventricular ejection fraction (LVEF) of 50% or higher at baseline
•adequate organ function
•Negative serum pregnancy test at baseline (within 14 days prior to randomization) and agree to use medically approved precautions to prevent pregnancy during the study and for 12 weeks following the last dose of abemaciclib id menopause induced by gonadotropin-releasing hormone (GnRH) agonist or radiation
•Discontinued previous localized radiotherapy for palliative purposes or for lytic lesions at risk of fracture at least 2 weeks prior to randomization and recovered from the acute effects of therapy
•Discontinued all previous therapies for cancer (including chemotherapy, radiotherapy, immunotherapy, and endocrine therapy), except trastuzumab, for at least 21 days for myelosuppressive agents or 14 days for nonmyelosuppressive agents prior to receiving study drug, and recovered from the acute effects of therapy

Exclusion Criteria:

•Have visceral crisis
•Known central nervous system (CNS) metastases that are untreated, symptomatic, or require steroids to control symptoms
•Had major surgery within 14 days prior to randomization
•Received prior treatment with any cyclin-dependent kinase (CDK) 4 and CDK 6 inhibitor
•Received treatment with a drug that has not received regulatory approval for any indication within 14 or 21 days of randomization for a nonmyelosuppressive or myelosuppressive agent, respectively
•Have serious preexisting medical conditions that, in the judgment of the investigator, would preclude participation in this study
•History within the last 6 months of symptomatic congestive heart failure, myocardial infarction, or unstable angina
•History within the last 12 months of any of the following conditions: syncope of cardiovascular etiology, ventricular tachycardia, ventricular •Fibrillation, or sudden cardiac arrest
•History of any other cancer (except non-melanoma skin cancer or carcinoma in-situ of the cervix), unless in complete remission with no therapy for a minimum of 3 years
