Brief Summary:
This clinical trial is a Phase 1, open-label, sequential-group, dose-escalation (Part 1) and cohort-expansion study (Part 2) evaluating the safety, pharmacokinetics, pharmacodynamics, and antitumor activity of intravenously (IV) administered CBL0137 in participants with previously treated hematological malignancies.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Hematological Malignancies Drug: CBL0137 Phase 1

Detailed Description:

Part 1 of the study will evaluate the safety and pharmacology of a range of CBL0137 doses administered IV in participants with previously treated lymphomas, including diffuse large B-cell lymphoma (DLBCL), follicular lymphoma (FL), mantle cell lymphoma (MCL), Hodgkin lymphoma (HL), chronic lymphocytic leukemia/small lymphocytic lymphoma (CLL/SLL), or multiple myeloma (MM). Cohorts of 3 to 6 subjects will be sequentially enrolled at progressively higher dose levels of CBL0137 using a standard 3+3 dose-escalation design. An additional 6 participants may be accrued at the maximum tolerated dose (MTD) or at the recommended dose (RD) to confirm CBL0137 safety and pharmacology as a prelude to further clinical evaluation.

Part 2 of the study provides cohort expansion to further explore the safety, pharmacology, and clinical activity of CBL0137 monotherapy in participants with specific previously treated hematological cancers, including DLBCL, FL, MCL, HL, CLL/SLL, acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL), acute myeloid leukemia (AML), and MM. Twelve evaluable participants with each disease type may be enrolled.

Drug: CBL0137
CBL0137 administered IV weekly on Days 1 and 8 of repeated 21 day treatment cycles. Number of Cycles: 2 or until progression or unacceptable toxicity develops
Other Name: Curaxin

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Part 1: Maximum Tolerated Dose (MTD) and Recommended Dose (RD) [ Time Frame: At the end of Cycle 1 (each cycle is 21 days) ]
    MTD is defined as dose level at which ≥6 subjects have been treated and which is associated with a first-cycle dose-limiting toxicity (DLT) in ≤17% of the participants. RD may be the MTD or may be a lower dose within the tolerable dose range. Selection of the RD will be based on consideration of short- and long-term safety information together with available pharmacokinetic, pharmacodynamic, and efficacy data.

  2. Part 2: Overall Response Rate (ORR) [ Time Frame: Through study completion, an average of 1 year ]
    ORR is defined as the proportion of subjects who achieve a complete response (CR), complete response with incomplete blood count recovery (CRi), or partial response (PR) for those with DLBCL, FL, MCL, HL, or CLL/SLL; the proportion of subjects who achieve a CR, CRi, or unconfirmed CR (CRu) for those with ALL; the portion of subjects who achieve a CR or CRi for those with AML; and the proportion of subjects who achieve a stringent CR (sCR), CR, very good PR (VGPR), or PR for those with MM. An ORR of ≥20% is considered the minimum value of potential interest in each of the selected indications.

Layout table for eligibility information
Ages Eligible for Study:   18 Years and older   (Adult, Older Adult)
Sexes Eligible for Study:   All
Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   No

Inclusion Criteria:

  • Presence of an active hematological malignancy:

    • Part 1 (Dose Escalation): Diagnosis of B-cell DLBCL, FL, MCL, HL, CLL/SLL, or MM as documented by medical records.
    • Part 2 (Cohort Expansion): Diagnosis of DLBCL, FL, MCL, HL, CLL/SLL, ALL, MM, or AML as documented in medical records.
  • Requirement for therapy of the hematological malignancy due to disease-related symptoms, lymphadenopathy, organomegaly, extranodal organ involvement, or progressive disease.
  • Hematological malignancy has been previously treated, has relapsed after or progressed during prior therapy, and has limited potential for benefit from currently available therapy, including hematopoietic stem cell transplantation.
  • Presence of measurable disease:

    • For subjects with DLBCL, FL, MCL, HL, or CLL/SLL: presence of radiographically measurable lymphadenopathy or extranodal lymphoid malignancy (defined as the presence of ≥1 lesion that measures ≥2.0 cm in the longest dimension and ≥1.0 cm in the longest perpendicular dimension as assessed by computed tomography).

  • Ongoing risk for bleeding due to active gastrointestinal disease or bleeding diathesis.
  • Evidence of an ongoing systemic bacterial, fungal, or viral infection (including upper respiratory tract infections) at the time of start of study therapy. Note: Subjects with localized fungal infections of skin or nails are eligible.
