Study Details

Study Description

Brief Summary

A study of siremadlin in combination with venetoclax plus azacitidine in adult participants with AML who are ineligible for chemotherapy.

Condition or DiseaseIntervention/TreatmentPhase
Phase 1/Phase 2

Detailed Description

The primary purpose of this study is to assess whether siremadlin in combination with venetoclax plus azacitidine can enhance the clinical response in unfit AML patients without unacceptable levels of treatment-emergent toxicities. The recommended dose of siremadlin in combination with venetoclax plus azacitidine will be determined to be explored further in the expansion phase and the preliminary efficacy in achieving Complete Remission (CR) will be evaluated in participants who responded sub-optimally to first-line venetoclax plus azacitidine treatment.

The study will be conducted in two parts. The primary purpose of Part 1 (Safety Run-in) is to rule out excessive toxicity of siremadlin when administered in combination with venetoclax plus azacitidine while the primary purpose of Part 2 (Expansion) is to evaluate the preliminary efficacy of siremadlin when combined with venetoclax plus azacitidine in the respective patient population.

The study treatment (siremadlin in combination with venetoclax plus azacitidine) will be administered in cycles with a planned duration of 28 days and will continue until the participants experience disease progression/relapse or unacceptable toxicity.

In the Safety run-in part, 9-15 participants will be enrolled in each arms. Approximately 3-6 participants will be enrolled at the starting dose level of siremadlin in combination with venetoclax plus azacitidine in both arms independently. Provided the starting dose level is determined to be safe, approximately 6-9 additional participants will be enrolled at dose level +1. Safety review meetings will take place involving participating investigators and the Sponsor Team to make decisions regarding siremadlin dose and determine the recommended dose for expansion. Approximately 26 patients will be treated at the recommended dose in the expansion part.

    Outcome Measures

    Primary Outcome Measures

    1. Percentage of participants with dose Limiting Toxicities (DLTs) as per investigator assessment reported during the first cycle (separately in Arm 1 & Arm 2) [From Cycle 1 Day 1 to Cycle 1 Day 28 (28 days)]

      Assessment of Dose Limiting Toxicity (DLT); Safety/Tolerability during the first cycle of study treatment

    2. Percentage of participants treated at the recommended dose for expansion, achieving a complete remission (CR) as per investigator assessment (Arm 1 only) [At least 7 cycles (196 days)]

      Assessment of Complete remission (CR) in order to evaluate preliminary efficacy of siremadlin (in combination of venetoclax plus azacitidine) at the determined recommended dose for expansion

    Secondary Outcome Measures

    1. Percentage of participants treated at the recommended dose for expansion, achieving CR as per investigator assessment (Arm 2 only; for Arm 1 assessment of CR is a primary outcome measure)) [up to 3 years]

      Assessment of CR in order to evaluate preliminary efficacy of siremadlin (in combination of venetoclax plus azacitidine) at the determined recommended dose for expansion in participants with newly diagnosed AML having high-risk disease features.

    2. Time of the date of the first documented CR to the date of the first documented relapse or death due to any cause, whichever occurs first (Arm 1 and Arm 2) [up to 3 years]

      Assessment of duration of CR in participants who achieved a CR.

    3. Percentage of participants achieving CR or complete remission with partial hematological recovery (CRh) and percentage of participants achieving CR or complete remission with incomplete hematological recovery (CRi) (Arm 1 and Arm 2) [up to 3 years]

      CRh is defined as CR with partial hematological recovery (i.e. neutrophil >0.5 X109/L and platelet > 50X109/L) and CRi is defined as CR with incomplete hematological recovery (i.e. neutrophil <1.0X109/L and/or platelet <100X109/L)

    4. Time from the date of the first documented CR/CRh and CR/CRi to the date of first documented relapse or death due to any cause, whichever occurs first (Arm 1 and Arm 2) [up to 3 years]

      Assessment of duration of CR/CRh and duration of CR/CRi

    5. The time from start of treatment to death due to any cause (Arm 1 and Arm 2) [up to 3 years]

      PK parameters AUC and concentration vs time profiles of siremadlin, venetoclax and azacitidine. AUC0-t: The area under the concentration vs. time Curve (AUC) from time zero to specified time point.

AUCtau is the AUC to the end of the dosing interval as when possible PK samples will be collected up to 24 h postdose for siremadlin and venetoclax. Steady-state will be assumed on Day 5 (AUCtau, ss) in case of continuous dosing.

    8. PK parameter: Cmax of siremadlin, venetoclax and azacitidine (Arm 1 and Arm 2) [up to 3 years]

      PK parameter Cmax and concentration vs time profiles of siremadlin, venetoclax and azacitidine. Cmax is the maximum (peak) observed plasma, blood, serum or other body fluid drug concentration following drug administration (mass x volume -1)
