Brief Summary:
This is an open-label Phase 1b/2 study in patients with chronic lymphocytic leukemia/small lymphocytic lymphoma (CLL/SLL)or non hodgkin's lymphoma (NHL) who have failed prior standard of care therapies including a BTK inhibitor where one is approved for the indication.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemia Small Lymphocytic Lymphoma Lymphoplasmacytoid Lymphoma Mantle-Cell Lymphoma Waldenstrom Macroglobulinemia Diffuse Large B Cell Lymphoma Follicular Lymphoma Marginal Zone Lymphoma Drug: SNS-062 Phase 1 Phase 2

Detailed Description:
This study includes 2 parts: phase 1 (dose escalation) and phase 2 (cohort expansion) in patients with CLL/SLL or NHL who have failed prior standard of care therapies including a BTK inhibitor where one is approved for the indication. NHL indications include lymphoplasmacytoid lymphoma/Waldenström's macroglobulinemia (LPL/WM), mantle cell lymphoma (MCL), marginal zone lymphoma (MZL), diffuse large B-cell lymphoma of the activated B-cell subtype (DLBCL-ABC), and follicular lymphoma (FL). In Phase 1b, cohorts of 3 to 6 patients are studied at each dose level, starting with 25 mg vecabrutnib BID in oral capsule form. Following identification of the MTD and/or recommended dose, in Phase 2 patients will be enrolled to expansion cohorts to further characterize the clinical activity, safety, and pharmacology of vecabrutinib. Cycle length is 4 weeks.

Study Type : Interventional  (Clinical Trial)
Estimated Enrollment : 124 participants
Intervention Model: Sequential Assignment
Masking: None (Open Label)
Primary Purpose: Treatment
Official Title: A Phase 1b/2 Dose-Escalation and Cohort-Expansion Study of the Noncovalent, Reversible Bruton's Tyrosine Kinase Inhibitor, SNS-062, in Patients With B-Lymphoid Malignancies
Actual Study Start Date : April 28, 2017
Estimated Primary Completion Date : December 31, 2020
Estimated Study Completion Date : June 30, 2021

Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: Dose escalating cohorts of SNS-062
Sequential groups, 25, 50, 100, 200, 300, 400 and 500 mg twice daily to determine maximum tolerated dose and recommended dose (RD) in the treatment of various hematological cancers followed by expansion of the recommended dose cohort in Phase 2 of the study treating hematological cancers.
Drug: SNS-062
SNS-062 will be orally administered twice daily and available in capsules containing either 25 mg or 100 mg of active ingredient.

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Maximum tolerated dose and/or Recommended dose of SNS-062 (Phase 1b) [ Time Frame: Up to approximately 21 months ]
    To determine the Maximum Tolerated Dose (MTD) and/or Recommended Dose (RD)within the tested SNS-062 dose range. The MTD is the highest tested dose level at which ≥6 subjects have been treated and which is associated with a Cycle 1 dose limiting toxicity (DLT) in <33% of the subjects. The RD may be the MTD or may be a lower dose.

  2. Objective Response Rate (ORR) (Phase 2) [ Time Frame: Approximately 24 months ]

    Phase 2 portion of study measuring ORR and corresponding 95% confidence intervals by cohort. ORR will be defined by disease subtype as the proportion of subjects who achieve CLL/SLL: a CR, CRi, or PR.

    MCL: a CR or PR. MZL: a CR or PR. LPL/WM: a CR, VGPR, PR, or MR.

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Safety as assessed through reported AEs, SAEs, DLTs and abnormal lab findings [ Time Frame: Up to approximately 24 months ]
    Type, severity, timing of onset, duration, and relationship to study drug of any TEAEs or abnormalities of laboratory tests, SAEs, DLTs, or AEs leading to study discontinuation.

  2. Characterization of Pharmacokinetics (AUC) [ Time Frame: Up to approximately 24 months ]
    Area Under the Curve (AUC)

  3. Characterization of Pharmacokinetics (Cmax) [ Time Frame: Up to approximately 24 months ]
    Maximum Plasma Concentration (Cmax)
