Brief Summary:
The outcome of HMA-refractory patients with MDS or AML is dismal with a median survival of 5 months after failure, representing a significant unmet medical need due to the very limited treatment options. In this context, a specific targeting of the leukemic stem cell (LSC) seems a promising option to selectively combat the leukemic progenitor cells. In fact, CD123 is overexpressed in AML and MDS progenitors making it an attractive target for immunotherapy-based approaches. JNJ-56022473 is a promising compound that has been engineered with regard to this strategy and the current phase II trial has the aim to evaluate the overall hematological response rate at 3 months in HMA refractory/relapsed AML and MDS patients.

Study Type : Interventional  (Clinical Trial)
Actual Enrollment : 25 participants
Allocation: N/A
Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment
Masking: None (Open Label)
Primary Purpose: Treatment
Official Title: Single Agent JNJ-56022473 in MDS and AML Patients Failing Hypomethylating Agent Based Therapy
Actual Study Start Date : July 2016
Actual Primary Completion Date : October 2018
Actual Study Completion Date : October 2018

Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: Treatment Arm
JNJ-56022473 will be given intravenously to all subjects at a dose of 9 mg/kg once every 14 days for an initial treatment period of 3 months (6 infusions). Responders will then receive up to 20 additional infusions whereas for non-responders the initial treatment will be followed by a up to 9 months observation period without further JNJ-56022473 treatment. Thus, the individual study duration for a subject will be approx. 1 year. A follow up visit will be performed after 3 months after last study drug administration for all patients to track pregnancy status according to IB.
Drug: JNJ-56022473
JNJ-56022473 will be supplied as a lyophilized product containing 100mg of active pharmaceutical ingredient (50 mg/mL after reconstitution with 2.0 mL sterile water for injection). The JNJ-56022473 dose administered will be dependent upon the subject's weight at baseline. The JNJ-56022473 dose should be adjusted in case the subject's weight changes by > 10%. JNJ- 56022473 will be administered in 250 mL IV infusion over approximately 180 minutes using an infusion pump.
Other Name: CSL362

Procedure: Bone marrow analyses and CBC with differential
Bone marrow analyses and CBC with differential will be performed by a central laboratory. If the marrow cannot be aspirated, a biopsy should be performed.

Other: Flow cytometry analyses
Characterization of LSCs and blasts (including CD123 and CD38 expression) will be performed as study-related analyses in the context of this protocol by central flow cytometry using bone marrow samples.

Other: Central biobanking
Central biobanking of study samples (bone marrow, peripheral blood as well as a buccal swab) will be carried out in Dresden.

Procedure: Histopathology analysis
A bone marrow biopsy is taken whenever it seems necessary to the investigator.

Genetic: Cytogenetic analysis
The cytogenetic analysis with banding analysis (optional FISH) have to be performed at local labs. Therefore 2 - 5 ml of bone marrow will be collected and analysed.

Procedure: Serum chemistry
For serum chemistry 15 ml (2 x 7,5 ml) of peripheral blood have to be collected.

Procedure: Automated CBC
For CBC a minimum of 3 ml of peripheral blood have to be collected.

Procedure: Pregnancy Test
Serum or urine pregnancy testing β-HCG with a sensitivity of at least 25 mIU/mL is to be done not more than 3 days prior to initiation of JNJ-56022473 in female patients with childbearing potential. Furthermore, serum or urine pregnancy testing has to be done after end of treatment (EoT) visit.

Primary Outcome Measures :

  3. Progression-free-survival [ Time Frame: 1 year ]
  4. Overall hematological response rate at 12 months [ Time Frame: 1 year ]
  5. Quality of life EORTC-QLQ30 [ Time Frame: 9 or 15 months ]
    measured by EORTC-QLQ30

  6. Time to treatment failure [ Time Frame: 3 or 12 months ]
  7. Duration of response (best overall response) [ Time Frame: 3 or 12 months ]
