Dasatinib in Patients With Waldenström Macroglobulinemia (WM) Progressing on Ibrutinib DASATINIB

What's the purpose of this trial?

This is Phase I pilot, single center study designed to explore the safety of Dasatinib in symptomatic Waldenström Macroglobulinemia participants who are progressing on ibrutinib therapy with BTK Cys481 or PLCG2 mutations

This trial is currently open and accepting patients.

* Progression of clinically significant disease related symptoms
* Symptomatic disease meeting criteria for treatment using consensus panel criteria from the Second International Workshop on WM \[26\]. One or more of the following:

* Constitutional symptoms
* Progressive or symptomatic lymphadenopathy or splenomegaly
* Hemoglobin \<10 g/dL
* Platelet count \<100 k/uL
* Symptomatic peripheral neuropathy
* Systemic amyloidosis
* Renal insufficiency
* Symptomatic cryoglobulinemia
* Age 18 years or older
* Measurable disease, defined as presence of immunoglobulin M (IgM) paraprotein with a minimum serum IgM level of \> 2 times the upper limit normal.
* ECOG performance status ≤2 (Karnofsky ≥60%, see Appendix A)
* Women of childbearing potential: Females of childbearing potential (FCBP) must agree to use two reliable forms of contraception simultaneously or have or will have complete abstinence from heterosexual intercourse during the following time periods related to this study: 1) while participating in the study; and 2) for at least 28 days after discontinuation from the study. FCBP must be referred to a qualified provider of contraceptive methods if needed.
* Men must agree to use a latex condom during sexual contact with a female of childbearing potential (FCBP) even if they have had a successful vasectomy.
* Participants must have normal organ and marrow function as defined below:

* Absolute neutrophil count ≥500/ uL (Growth factor not permitted)
* Platelets ≥50,000/ uL (Platelet transfusion not permitted)
* Hemoglobin ≥ 7 g/dL (RBC transfusion permitted)
* Total bilirubin ≤ 2 mg/dL

* History clinically significant ventricular arrhythmias such as ventricular tachycardia, ventricular fibrillation, or Torsades de pointes
* Known history of alcohol or drug abuse
* On any active therapy for other malignancies with the exception of topical therapies for basal cell or squamous cell cancers of the skin.
* History of non-compliance to medical regimens.
* Treatment with strong CYP3A4/5 inhibitors or inducers
* Participants who are taking St. Johns Wort. Must discontinue at least 5 days before starting dasatinib.
