A Study of BTX-A51 in People With Advanced Solid Tumor or Non-Hodgkin Lymphoma

Overview

This is a multicenter, open label, nonrandomized, sequential dose escalation/cohort expansion, multiple dose study designed to evaluate the safety, toxicity, and PK as well as preliminary efficacy of BTX-A51 in subjects with advanced solid tumors and NHL. The study will be done in two phases, described below. Phase 1a (Dose Escalation Phase): The Phase 1a portion is designed to determine the dose limiting toxicities (DLTs), maximum tolerated dose (MTD), and recommended Phase 2 dose (RP2D) of orally administered BTX-A51. BTX-A51 will be administered once daily on a weekly schedule of 5 days on/2 days off. Dose escalation will proceed according to a modified 3+3 design. Each cycle will consist of 28 days (4 weeks), and the DLT observation period will be the first cycle (i.e., 28 days after initiation of dosing). A DLT may be observed in no more than 0 out of 3 or 1 out of 6 subjects who have completed the DLT observation period before the next cohort initiates accrual. Barring DLT, sequential dose escalation of BTX-A51 is planned with up to a total of 6 dose levels; on the basis of these an MTD will be identified. The MTD is defined as the highest dose level with a subject incidence of DLTs of 0 or 1 out of 6 during the first 28 days of study drug dosing. A minimum of 6 subjects needs to be treated at a dose level before this dose level can be deemed as the MTD. Phase 1b (Cohort Expansion Phase): Dose expansion may begin when the RP2D has been determined. Up to 40 additional subjects will be enrolled to evaluate safety and preliminary efficacy of BTX-A51 in subjects with documented MYC genomic amplified/overexpressed tumors. Dosing in this phase of the study consists of the first cycle of therapy (i.e., 28 days).

Clinical Trial Outcome Measures

Primary Measures

  • Safety and tolerability of BTX-A51
    • Time Frame: From first dose of BTX-A51 through 30 days after the last BTX-A51 treatment (subjects will will be offered continued access to study BTX-A51 until disease progression or unacceptable toxicity)
    • To examine the incidence of clinical and laboratory adverse events after multiple doses of BTX-A51.
  • Defining the maximum tolerated dose (MTD) or recommended Phase 2 dose (RP2D) of BTX-A51
    • Time Frame: At the end of Cycle 1 (each cycle is 28 days)
    • To assess number of patients experiencing dose-limiting toxicities (DLTs)

Secondary Measures

  • Objective response rate (ORR)
    • Time Frame: Up to 2 years after the last treatment or upon death.
    • To evaluate the objective response rate (ORR) as determined by the specific disease response criteria
  • Duration of response (DoR)
    • Time Frame: Up to 2 years after the last treatment or upon death.
    • To evaluate the duration of response (DoR), defined as time from the date of first documentation of response to the date of the first documentation of progressive disease (PD), or death due to any cause
  • Progression free survival (PFS)
    • Time Frame: Up to 2 years after the last treatment or upon death.
