Brief Summary:
Protocol YL-13027-001 is a phase I open-label, first in human, dose escalation study to assess the tolerability, pharmacokinetics (PK) and efficacy of YL-13027 in patients with advanced solid tumor.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Advanced Solid Tumor Drug: YL-13027 Phase 1

Detailed Description:

This is a two-part study comprised of a dose escalation part and a dose expansion part.In the dose escalation part single patient cohorts will be dosed until a single related toxicity of Grade ≥ 2 or a Dose Limiting Toxicity (DLT) is observed. If this occurs, the study will switch to a conventional oncology 3+3 design (3 patients per dose cohort, with the potential to add an additional 3 patients if toxicity is observed) and escalation will continue until the maximum tolerated dose (MTD) is reached and a recommended Phase II (RP2D) dose is determined. Once the MTD is established a separate dose expansion part will enroll up total additional 16 patients at the RP2D.

In this clinical trial, YL-13027 is given orally once daily. A treatment cycle is defined as 28 days. YL-13027 was given until disease progression, unacceptable toxicity, or withdrawal from the study. The protocol was initiated with a single-patient cohort, treated with oral YL-13027 60 mg once daily (QD). Subsequent cohorts used a 3+3 design and evaluated doses of 40-320mg QD. Adverse events (AEs) were graded by NCI-CTCAE v5.0. Efficacy was assessed according toRECIST v1.1.

Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: YL-13027

YL-13027 is a selective inhibitor of the beta isoform of transforming growth factor (TGF-β).

YL-13027 for clinical use is presented as a sterile tablets at 10 mg, or 50 mg doses. The drug product is intended for oral administration.Preset cohorts of 3-6 subjects will be enrolled sequentially at doses of 60, 120, 180, 240, 300, and 360 mg/day.

Drug: YL-13027
YL-13027 is a new type of TGF-βselective inhibitor which differs structurally from Galunisertib and its analogs, showing high potency against TGF-β, but with markedly improved selectivity. This higher selectivity for TGF-β may decrease the risk of serious infection seen with Galunisertib and especially with duvelisib due to strong immune suppression.Preclinical evaluation has demonstrated improved efficacy and safety for YL-13027 compared to Galunisertib.

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Dose limited toxicities evaluated with NCI-CTC AE v5.0 [ Time Frame: within 28 days after the first dose ]
    Incidence of dose limited toxicities and associated dose of YL-13027

  2. Adverse events evaluated by NCI CTCAE v5.0 [ Time Frame: from the first dose to within 30 days after the last dose ]
    Incidence of adverse events and associated dose of YL-13027

  3. Plasma concentration of YL-13027 [ Time Frame: within 56 days after the first dose ]
    This composite endpoint will measure the plasma concentration of YL-13027

  4. Objective response rate [ Time Frame: within 30 days after the last dose ]
    the proportion of subjects who have a Complete Response or Partial Response

  5. Disease control rate [ Time Frame: within 30 days after the last dose ]
    the proportion of subjects who have a Complete Response or Partial Response
