Safety, Tolerability and Pharmacokinetics Study of KPG-818 in Hematological Malignancies Subjects KPG-818

What's the purpose of this trial?

This is a Phase 1 study to evaluate the safety, pharmacokinetics(PK), and preliminary clinical activity of KPG-818 as a single agent in adult subjects with selected hematological malignancies, including multiple myeloma (MM), mantle cell lymphoma (MCL), follicular lymphoma (FL), diffuse large B-cell lymphoma (DLBCL), indolent lymphoma, adult T-cell leukemia-lymphoma (ATL), or chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL).

This trial is currently open and accepting patients.

What will happen during the trial?

This study will assist in identifying appropriate, well tolerated doses that can be administered in subsequent studies in subjects with selected hematological malignancies.

You may be able to join this trial if you:

The following criteria is a partial list of reasons why patients may be eligible to participate in this clinical trial. Further evaluation with a medical professional is required.

      • CLL/SLL: at least 2 prior lines of therapy for CLL/SLL and require treatment by 2018 iwCLL criteria.
      • Other indolent NHL: Subjects must have been treated with all standard of care therapies available to the subject which, in the assessment of the investigator, may be beneficial to the subject.
  • Have measurable or assessable disease.
    • For MM:

      • M-protein quantities ≥ 200 mg/24-hour urine collection by urine protein electrophoresis (UPEP or UIFE) or
      • Serum free light chain (FLC) levels > 100 mg/L involved light chain and an abnormal kappa/lambda (κ/λ) ratio in subjects without detectable serum or urine M-protein or
      • For subjects with immunoglobulin (Ig) class A (IgA) myeloma whose disease can only be reliably measured by quantitative Ig measurement, a serum IgA level ≥ 0.50 g/dL.
    • For MCL, DLBCL, ATL, indolent lymphoma, such as FL and CLL/SLL, etc.:
      • At least 1 bidimensionally measurable lesion larger than 1.5 cm in largest dimension by computed tomography (CT), positron emission tomography CT (PET-CT), or magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scan.
  • Meet following laboratory requirements:
    • Absolute neutrophil count ≥ 1.0 × 109/L (Granulocyte-colony stimulating factor [G-CSF] or granulocyte-macrophage colony-stimulating factor [GM-CSF] allowed if received within 2 weeks prior to screening parameter).
    • Hemoglobin > 7.5 g/dL (red blood cell [RBC] transfusion is allowed to meet eligibility if performed more than 7 days prior to screening parameter).
    • Platelet count > 75 000/μL (platelet transfusions are allowed if received more than 2 weeks prior to screening parameter)
    • Corrected serum calcium ≤ 13.5 mg/dL (≤ 3.4 mmol/L).

For subjects with serum creatinine clearance between 50-60 mL/min at screening, serum creatinine clearance levels should be monitored during the study.
  • Eastern Cooperative Oncology Group (ECOG) performance status of 0 to 2. In case of ECOG 2, the Investigator can discuss with Sponsor before making eligibility decision.
  • Males and females of childbearing potential must agree to use at least two methods of contraception, as detailed in Section 6.1.3, during the study treatment and continue until 3 months after the completion of study treatment.
