Study Description

Brief Summary

The main purpose of this first in human study with CC-122 is to assess the safety and action of a new class of experimental drug (Pleiotropic Pathway Modulator) in patients with advanced tumors unresponsive to standard therapies and to determine the appropriate dosing level and regimen for later-stage clinical trials.

Detailed Description

This trial is enrolling additional Multiple Myeloma (MM) subjects in a separate cohort defined as MM-2 to evaluate tolerability, safety and preliminary efficacy of CC-122 formulated capsule alone or in combination with DEX on intermittent dosing schedule (5 of 7 days of the week) in Pomalidomide-naïve subjects. Preliminary efficacy data in Multiple Myeloma subjects, warrants further exploration of CC-122 in MM on intermittent schedules to assess if dose intensity and tolerability can be improved. Initially, patients will be treated with oral CC-122 for one month. During this time, various tests (involving blood and urine collections, ECGs, etc) will be performed. Those whose tumors stabilize or regress may continue receiving treatment for as long as they benefit from CC-122. Different dose levels of CC-122 will be tested in a dose-rising study design.

Arms and Interventions

Experimental: CC-122 MM-2

A new MM cohort (MM-2) will be enrolled in order to evaluate tolerability, safety and preliminary efficacy of the CC-122 formulated capsule given on an intermittent schedule (5/7 days per week) in 2 parallel dose escalation cohorts (MM-2a and MM-2b, respectively) (DEX) in Pomalidomide naïve subjects

Drug: CC-122
CC-122 dose in both arms will increase by 1 mg increments starting with 3 mg 5/7 days using the 3+3 design in dose escalation phase. A dose-level -1, with a starting dose of 2mg, may also be evaluated if the opening dose level is not tolerated. At all dose levels in MM-2b arm, DEX will be combined with CC-122 at a starting dose dependent on the subject's age: for subjects who are ≤ 75 years of age, DEX 40 mg/day will be given on Days 1, 8, 15 and 22 of a 28-day cycle and for subjects who are > 75 years of age, DEX 20 mg/day will be given on Days 1, 8, 15 and 22 of a 28-day cycle. Approximately 33 subjects will be enrolled in the dose escalation phase (15 in each treatment arm). An additional intermittent schedule of 21/28 days may be evaluated per Safety Review Committee (SRC) decision. Following dose escalation, one or two arms will be expanded at or below the MTD in up to 28 subjects (14 subjects in each arm).

Experimental: CC-122- DLBCL-2

A new DLBCL cohort (DLBCL-2) in order to evaluate intermittent schedules of CC-122 (5 continuous days out of 7 days per week [5/7 days] and/or 21 continuous days out of 28 days per cycle [21/28 days]). Doses to be explored include 4 mg and 5 mg on an intermittent schedule using the 3+3 design described in Part A in order to establish an MTD for the intermittent dosing schedules. Following dose escalation, one or more intermittent dosing schedules may be expanded at or below the new intermittent schedule MTD in at least 20 total subjects per dosing schedule.

Drug: CC-122
One or more intermittent schedules of CC-122 either given 5 continuous days out of 7 per week (5/7 days) or 21 continuous days out of 28 days per cycle (21/28 days). Following dose escalation, one or more of these intermittent schedules will be evaluated at a starting dose of 4 mg.

Experimental: CC-122- GBM-2

A new GBM cohort (GBM-2) in order to evaluate doses of CC-122 above the 3 mg QD MTD determined in all comers in Part A. CC-122 dose will increase in 1 mg increments starting with 4 mg daily on a continuous schedule using the 3+3 design described in Part A in order to establish an MTD specific for GBM subjects. Following dose escalation, the cohort will be expanded at or below the new MTD in up to 20 total subjects.

Drug: CC-122
Dose escalation on a continous schedule will be evaluated at a starting dose of 4 mg. Specifically, dose levels with 1 mg increments (eg 4mg, 5mg, 6mg etc.) will be evaluated using a 3+3 design as detailed in Part A of the protocol .

Experimental: Primary Central Nervous System Lymphoma (PCNSL)

During dose expansion of selected intermittent schedules, an additional cohort of up to 10 subjects with PCNSL will also be explored at the same dose and schedule as DLBCL to confirm some safety and preliminary efficacy signal

Drug: CC-122
Up to 10 subjects with relapsed or refractory PCNSL will be enrolled to a PCNSL cohort to evaluate intermittent schedules of CC-122 and to further explore preliminary signals of efficacy and biomarker hypotheses.
