Acute Myeloid Leukemia Clinical Trial
Safety, Tolerability, and Efficacy of TAK-659 in Adults With Relapsed or Refractory Acute Myelogenous Leukemia (AML)
The purpose of the Phase 1b dose finding phase is to determine the safety, tolerability, and maximum tolerated dose (MTD)/recommended phase 2 dose (RP2D) of TAK-659 in participants with relapsed or refractory AML. The purpose of the Phase 2 expansion phase is to evaluate preliminary efficacy of TAK-659 in relapsed or refractory AML as measured by overall response rate (ORR).
The drug being tested in this study is TAK-659. TAK-659 is being tested to treat people who have relapsed or refractory acute myelogenous leukemia (AML). This study will be conducted in 2 phases. The first phase will determine a safe and well-tolerated dose of TAK-659 to be used in the second phase, and the second phase will look at response to treatment in people who take TAK-659.
The study will enroll approximately 106 participants (approximately 40 in the first phase and 66 in the second phase). There will be two separate cohorts during Phase 2 portion of the study, one for participants with FLT-3 internal tandem duplication (ITD) mutations and the other for FLT-3 wild-type participants.
• TAK-659 60 milligram (mg) tablet starting dose escalated in 20 mg or higher increments to a maximum tolerated dose or RP2D
• TAK-659 tablet at the maximum tolerated dose or RP2D determined in Phase 1b.
All participants will be asked to take their prescribed tablets at the same time each day throughout the study.
This multi-center trial will be conducted in the United States. The overall time to participate in this study is up to 24 months (12 months of treatment and 12 months of follow up) unless the treating physician believes the participant would continue to derive benefit from the study drug.
Male or female participants 18 years or older.
Must have a histopathologically documented diagnosis of primary or secondary AML (excluding acute promyelocytic leukemia), as defined by World Health Organization (WHO) criteria (Jaffe et al, 2001), for whom no standard therapies are anticipated to result in a durable remission according to the clinical judgment of the principal investigator, or who refuses standard therapies (phase 1b and 2).
Participants for the phase 2 portion of the study must, in addition, meet the following:
o Must be refractory to or relapsed after no more than 2 prior chemotherapy regimens. Re-induction with the same regimen or stem cell transplant will not be considered a separate regimen.
Eastern Cooperative Oncology Group performance status of 0 to 1.
Female participants who:
Are postmenopausal for at least 1 year before the screening visit, or
Are surgically sterile, or
If they are of childbearing potential, agree to practice 2 effective methods of contraception, at the same time, from the time of signing the informed consent through 180 days after the last dose of study drug, or
Agree to practice true abstinence, when this is in line with the preferred and usual lifestyle of the participant. (Periodic abstinence [example, calendar, ovulation, symptothermal, postovulation methods], withdrawal, spermicides only, and lactational amenorrhea are not acceptable methods of contraception. Female and male condoms should not be used together).
Male participants, even if surgically sterilized (that is, status postvasectomy), who:
Agree to practice effective barrier contraception during the entire study treatment period and through 180 days after the last dose of study drug, or
Agree to practice true abstinence, when this is in line with the preferred and usual lifestyle of the participant. (Periodic abstinence [example, calendar, ovulation, symptothermal, postovulation methods for the female partner], withdrawal, spermicides only, and lactational amenorrhea are not acceptable methods of contraception. Female and male condoms should not be used together).
Voluntary written consent must be given before performance of any study-related procedure not part of standard medical care, with the understanding that consent may be withdrawn by the participant at any time without prejudice to future medical care.
In the absence of rapid progressive disease, the interval from prior systemic anticancer treatment to time of TAK-659 administration should be at least 2 weeks for cytotoxic agents (other than hydroxyurea), or at least 5 half-lives for noncytotoxic agents, and participants have to have recovered from acute toxicities of these therapies. Participants who are on hydroxyurea may be included in the study and may continue on hydroxyurea for the first 28 days while participating in this study.
Suitable venous access for the study-required blood sampling, including pharmacokinteic (PK) and pharmacodynamic (PD) sampling and blood transfusion support.
Clinical laboratory values as specified in the following:
Total bilirubin must be less than or equal to (<=) 1.5* the upper limit of normal (ULN).
Serum alanine aminotransferase (ALT) and aspartate aminotransferase (AST) must be less than or equal to (<=) 2.5*the ULN.
Lipase <=1.5*ULN and amylase <=1.5*ULN with no clinical symptoms suggestive of pancreatitis or cholecystitis.
Creatinine clearance greater than or equal to (>=) 60 milliliter per minute (mL/min) either as estimated by the Cockcroft-Gault equation or based on urine collection (12 or 24 hours).
Clinically active central nervous system leukemia.
Female participants who are lactating and breastfeeding or have a positive serum pregnancy test during the Screening period or a positive urine pregnancy test on Day 1 before first dose of study drug.
Any serious medical or psychiatric illness, including drug or alcohol abuse that could, in the investigator's opinion, potentially jeopardize the safety of the participant or interfere with the objectives of the study.
Systemic anti-cancer treatment (including investigational agents) <=21 days or <= 5*their half-lives before the first dose of study treatment. (For example, if the 5*the half-life is shorter than 21 days, 5*half-life should be used as the washout period. However, a minimum of 10 days should elapse from prior therapy to initiating protocol therapy).
Persistent clinically significant toxicity from prior chemotherapy that is Grade 2 or higher by the National Cancer Institute Common Terminology Criteria for Adverse Events (NCI CTCAE) (v4.03).
Receipt of hematopoietic stem cell transplant (HSCT) within 60 days of the first dose of TAK-659; clinically significant graft-versus-host disease (GVHD) requiring ongoing immunosuppressive therapy post HSCT at the time of screening (use of topical steroids for ongoing skin GVHD is permitted).

Use or consumption of any of the following substances:
Medications or supplements that are known to be inhibitors of P-glycoprotein (P-gp) or strong inhibitors or inducers of Cytochrome (CY) P3A within 5 times the inhibitor half-life (if a reasonable half-life estimate is known) or within 7 days (if a reasonable half-life estimate is unknown) before the first dose of study drug. In general, the use of these agents is not permitted during the study except for AE management.
Medications or supplements that are known to be strong CYP3A mechanism based inhibitors or strong CYP3A inducers and/or P-gp inducers within 7 days or within 5 times the inhibitor or inducer half-life (whichever is longer) before the first dose of study drug. In general, the use of these agents is not permitted during the study except for AE management.
