Arms and Interventions

Arm Intervention/Treatment
Experimental: ME-401

Drug: ME-401
In the first 2 cycles (1 cycle is 28 days), subjects will be administered 60 mg of ME-401 orally once a day on a continuous schedule (CS). After that, subjects will be administered 60 mg of ME-401 orally once a day for the first 7 days, followed by rest for 21 days on an intermittent schedule (IS).

Outcome Measures

Primary Outcome Measures

  1. Objective response rate (ORR) [Up to approximately 2 years]

    ORR is measured as the proportion of subjects achieving the best response rating of complete response (CR) or partial response (PR) prior to first progressive disease (PD).

Secondary Outcome Measures

  1. Efficacy of ME-401 as assessed by the duration of response (DOR) [Up to approximately 4 years]

  2. Efficacy of ME-401 as assessed by the progression-free survival (PFS) [Up to approximately 4 years]

  3. Efficacy of ME-401 as assessed by CR [Up to approximately 4 years]

  4. Efficacy of ME-401 as assessed by the Time to treatment failure (TTF) [Up to approximately 4 years]

  5. Efficacy of ME-401 as assessed by the objective response rate (ORR) [Up to approximately 4 years]

  6. Safety of ME-401 as assessed by the number of participants with treatment-emergent adverse events (TEAEs) [Up to approximately 4 years]

  7. Safety of ME-401 as assessed by the time to occurrence of adverse event of special interest (AESI) [Up to approximately 4 years]

  8. Plasma concentration level of ME-401 [Up to approximately 4 years]
