Acute Myeloid Leukemia Clinical Trial
Dose Escalation Study of Minnelide in Relapsed or Refractory Acute Myeloid Leukemia
This study is to determine the safety and recommended dosing of Minnelide in Acute Myeloid Leukemia (AML)
This phase 1 dose escalation clinical trial will establish the maximum tolerated dose (MTD) and recommended phase 2 dose (RP2D) of Minnelide as single-agent in relapsed/refractory (R/R) acute myeloid leukemia (AML) patients who are ineligible to receive intensive chemotherapy. The oral formulation of Minnelide will be used. Minnelide is a prodrug of triptolide (a potent heat shock protein (HSP) 70 inhibitor) with promising preclinical activity in AML.
Adults ages 18 years or older.
Participant must have relapsed or refractory acute myeloid leukemia (AML) (excluding acute promyelocytic leukemia).
Relapsed patients must have received at least 1 induction chemotherapy regimen or two cycles of a hypomethylating agent and achieved a Complete Response (CR), followed by relapse of disease.
Refractory patients must have received at least 1 induction chemotherapy regimen or two cycles of hypomethylating agent without achieving a CR.
Eastern Cooperative Oncology Group (ECOG) performance status <2.
Participants must have acceptable organ function.
Be able and willing to adhere to the study visit schedule and other protocol requirements.
Must be able to swallow capsules and have no evidence of GI tract abnormality that would alter the absorption of oral medications.
The effects of Minnelide on the developing human fetus are unknown. For this reason, women of child-bearing potential must have a negative serum or urine pregnancy test within 24 hours prior to beginning study treatment.
Participants of childbearing potential must practice contraception. Females of childbearing potential: Recommendation is for 2 effective contraceptive methods during the study. Male participants with female partners who are of childbearing potential: Recommendation is for male and partner to use at least 2 effective contraceptive methods, as described above, during the study. Should a woman become pregnant or suspect she is pregnant while participating in this study, she should inform her treating physician immediately.
Because there is an unknown but potential risk for adverse events in nursing infants secondary to treatment of the mother with Minnelide, breastfeeding mothers must agree to discontinue nursing if the mother is treated with Minnelide.
Provision of signed and dated informed consent document
