Background: Management of CML using tyrosine kinase inhibitors (TKIs) is often constrained by treatment failure, which portends a poor prognosis, particularly among patients who fail second-generation TKIs because of resistance. Treatment failure may be due to therapeutic resistance (whether BCR-ABL1 mutation-dependent or independent), intolerance, and/or suboptimal adherence. The BCR-ABL1T315I (“gatekeeper”) genotype is insensitive to first- and second-generation TKIs, and compound mutations complicate management with all members of the class (including third-generation TKI ponatinib). Olverembatinib (HQP1351) is a novel, potent, orally active BCR-ABL1 TKI with promising activity against CML, including antitumor activity regardless of genotype, and a preliminarily favorable safety profile.
Methods: This open-label bridging trial is evaluating the PK, efficacy, and safety of olverembatinib administered orally every other day (QOD) in adults who have chronic-phase, accelerated-phase, or blast-phase CML (CP-CML, AP-CML, or BP-CML) and Ph⁺ ALL, with or without the T315I mutation, and have experienced resistance to or intolerance (including NCI CTCAE v5.0 grade ≥ 2 adverse events) of at least 3 TKIs. Eligible patients have no residual grade ≥ 2 adverse events (other than alopecia or skin pigmentation change) due to prior treatments, a maximum ECOG performance status of 2, and a minimum life expectancy of 3 months. Study participants are being randomly allocated in a 1:1:1 ratio to 3 dose cohorts: 30, 40, or 50 mg of oral olverembatinib QOD over a cycle length of 28 days, with 10 patients per cohort and randomization stratified according to CML phase (CP-CML, AP-CML, or BP-CML) or Ph⁺ ALL and T315I mutational status. Study endpoints comprise the PK profile of olverembatinib at Cycle 1 Day 1 and Day 27; efficacy endpoints of major cytogenetic and hematologic responses; and safety. The recommended phase 2 dose of olverembatinib will be determined based on a comprehensive assessment of PK, safety, and efficacy data in US and Chinese patients. As of July 14, 2021, 14 of 30 patients have been enrolled. Internal study identifier HQP1351-CU-101. Clinicaltrial.gov identifier: NCT04260022.
