A Phase II Study of Enzalutamide (NSC# 766085) for Patients with Androgen Receptor Positive Salivary Cancers

This study will test any good and bad effects of the study drug called enzalutamide. Enzalutamide could shrink the cancer but it could also cause side effects. Researchers hope to learn if the study drug will shrink the cancer by at least 30% compared to its present size, in at least 1 out of 5 patients. Enzalutamide is not FDA approved to treat salivary gland cancer, but it has already been FDA-approved to treat other cancers.

Inclusion Criteria:
* Documentation of Disease - Histologic Documentation: Histologically proven diagnosis of salivary cancer by central pathology review. Receptor status: AR expression detected by immunohistochemistry by central review.
* Disease status - Measurable disease as defined in the protocol. Locally advanced/unresectable (as determined by local surgeon) OR metastatic disease.
* Prior Treatment
- Any number of prior lines of therapy
- No treatment with biologic therapy, immunotherapy, chemotherapy, investigational agent for malignancy, or radiation ≤ 28 days before study registration. No treatment with nitrosourea or mitomycin ≤ 42 days before study registration
- No prior therapy with enzalutamide (previous chemotherapy and/or other AR-targeted approaches is allowed).
* Not pregnant and not nursing, because this study involves an agent that has known genotoxic, mutagenic and teratogenic effects. A female of childbearing potent is a sexually mature female who: 1) has not undergone a hysterectomy or bilateral oophorectomy; or 2) has not been naturally postmenopausal for at least 12 consecutive months (ie, has had menses at any time in the preceding 12 consecutive months). For women of childbearing potential only, a negative pregnancy test done ≤ 5 days prior to registration is required.
* No History of the following:
- prior brain metastases
- leptomeningeal disease
- seizures
- class 3 or 4 congestive heart failure
- uncontrolled hypertension (systolic BP > 170 mmHg or diastolic BP > 105 mmHg)
- major surgery ≤ 4 weeks of registration
* Concomitant medications- Chronic concomitant treatment with strong CYP2C8 inhibitors is not allowed. Patients must discontinue the drug ≥ 14 days prior to registration. Chronic concomitant treatment with strong CYP3A4 inducers is not allowed. Patients must discontinue the drug ≥ 14 days prior to registration.
