Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Determination of the MTD of oral LAM-002A [ Time Frame: 28 days ]
    Dose escalation until determination of dose limiting toxicities

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Peak Plasma Concentration (Cmax) of LAM-002A [ Time Frame: 28 days ]
    Evaluation of LAM-002A and its metabolites in plasma

  • Area under the plasma concentration versus time curve (AUC) of LAM-002A [ Time Frame: 28 days ]
    Evaluation of LAM-002A and its metabolites in plasma

  • Number of participants with treatment-related adverse events as assessed by CTCAE v4.0 [ Time Frame: 1 cycle (28 days) to 6 or more cycles ]
    Identify toxicities

  • Evaluate primary anti-tumor activity [ Time Frame: 1 cycle (28 days) to 6 or more cycles ]
    evaluate the ability of LAM-002A to shrink tumors

Other Outcome Measures:
  • Microscopic changes in the internal structure of tumor cells and white blood cells [ Time Frame: 1 cycle (28 days) to 2 cycles ]
    Determine the effect of LAM-002A on tumor cells and blood samples

  • Evaluation of genetic alterations and expressions in tumor [ Time Frame: 1 cycle (28 Days) to 2 cycles ]
    Determine potential genetic make-up of NHL tumors

  • Evaluation of immune modulatory effects of LAM-002A [ Time Frame: 1 cycle (28 days) to 2 cycles ]
    Determine immune modulation activity of LAM-002A

  • Plasma identification of analytes [ Time Frame: 1 cycle (28 days) ]
    Preliminary assessment of anti-lymphoma activity

Estimated Enrollment: 75
Study Start Date: October 2015
Estimated Study Completion Date: May 2019
Estimated Primary Completion Date: March 2018 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: Single, open label
Single arm, open label. All patients will receive LAM-002A twice daily by mouth until progression or intolerability. Cycles will be 28 days long.
Drug: LAM-002A
25 mg capsules
Other Name: apilimod dimesylate

Detailed Description:

LAM-002A is supplied as 25 mg capsules and will be administered twice daily (BID) by mouth with a cycle length of 28 days. Patients will be advised to take the doses at the same time each day, approximately 12 hours apart on an empty stomach (no food within 2 hours prior to dose, or within 2 hours after dose).

A 3 + 3 design will be utilized to define a maximum tolerated dose (MTD). The MTD is defined as the highest dose at which no more than 1 of 6 patients (i.e., < 33%) experiences a dose-limiting toxicity (DLT) in the dose cohort.

Once the dose and schedule are established, additional patients will be treated to better characterize the safety, tolerability, preliminary anti-tumor activity, PK and pharmacodynamics of the study drug.


Ages Eligible for Study:   18 Years and older   (Adult, Senior)
Sexes Eligible for Study:   All
Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   No

Inclusion Criteria:

  1. Able to understand and comply with the protocol requirements and has signed the informed consent document.
  2. Confirmed diagnosis of B-cell Non-Hodgkin's lymphoma limited to follicular lymphoma (FL), DLBCL, mantle cell lymphoma (MCL), marginal zone lymphoma (MZL) or CLL/SLL that has progressed and for which standard curative measures do not exist or are no longer effective. Prior therapy must have included a rituximab-based regimen.
  3. Patients with DLBCL must have progressed after transplant, or be unwilling, unable or not an appropriate candidate for an autologous stem cell transplant
  4. Eastern Cooperative Oncology Group (ECOG) Performance Status of 2 or less.
  5. Adequate organ and marrow function.
  6. Able to swallow oral capsules without difficulty.

9. Acceptable birth control. 10. Women of childbearing potential (WCBP) must have a negative serum or urine pregnancy test at screening.

Exclusion Criteria:

  1. Patients with central nervous system (CNS) lymphoma are not eligible for the trial unless the disease had been treated and the subject remains without symptoms with no active CNS lymphoma.
  2. Not recovered from toxicity due to all prior therapies.
  3. Other uncontrolled significant illness .
  4. History of malabsorption or other gastrointestinal (GI) disease that may significantly alter the absorption of apilimod
  5. The patient has undergone major surgery within 28 days prior to first dose of study drug.
  6. Past history of tuberculosis (TB) or active infection with TB, human immunodeficiency virus (HIV), hepatitis B or hepatitis C.
  7. The patient is lactating and breast feeding.
  8. Unable or unwilling to abide by the study protocol or cooperate fully with the Investigator or designee.
