Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: Ficlatuzumab with HiDAC
Ficlatuzumab 20 mg/kg intravenously (IV) on Days 1 and 15 in combination with cytarabine 2 g/m2 IV per day on Days 2 through 7. Up to two additional doses can be administered - on Day 29, or on Days 29 and 43, if prolonged myelosuppression is experienced.
Biological: Ficlatuzumab
Ficlatuzumab is a selective recombinant humanized hepatocyte growth factor (HGF) inhibitory immunoglobulin G subclass 1 monoclonal antibody which blocks the MET tyrosine kinase receptor.
Other Name: AV-299

Drug: Cytarabine
Cytarabine is a chemotherapy agent. Chemotherapy agents are medications that kill cancer cells.
Other Names:
  • Ara-C
  • Arabinosylcytosine

Active Comparator: HiDAC alone
Cytarabine 2 g/m2 IV per day on Days 1 through 6
Drug: Cytarabine
Cytarabine is a chemotherapy agent. Chemotherapy agents are medications that kill cancer cells.
Other Names:
  • Ara-C
  • Arabinosylcytosine

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Overall Response Rate (ORR) [ Time Frame: Approximately 13 months (through study treatment completion) ]
    To estimate the overall response rate (ORR) (complete remission [CR] + CR with incomplete hematologic recovery [CRi]) of ficlatuzumab in combination with high-dose cytarabine (HiDAC) and HiDAC alone in adults with relapsed or refractory acute myeloid leukemia (AML)

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Number of participants with treatment-related adverse events as assessed by CTCAE v5.0 [ Time Frame: Approximately 14 months (through 30 days after the last subject completes treatment) ]
    To evaluate the safety and tolerability of ficlatuzumab when administered with HiDAC and HiDAC alone

  2. Overall Survival (OS) [ Time Frame: For up to one year after the end of study treatment ]
    To estimate the overall survival (OS) rate of ficlatuzumab in combination with HiDAC and HiDAC alone in adults with relapsed or refractory AML

  3. Disease-Free Survival (DFS) [ Time Frame: For up to one year after the end of study treatment ]
    To estimate the disease-free survival (DFS) rate of ficlatuzumab in combination with HiDAC and HiDAC alone in subjects achieving CR

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:

  1. Diagnosis of AML according to the WHO criteria, which defines relapsed or refractory to induction therapy as follows:

    1. First relapse within 12 months after date of first CR or CRi
    2. Persistent AML documented by bone marrow biopsy at least 29 days after Day 1 of the first induction cycle of cytotoxic chemotherapy
    3. Hypercellular bone marrow with greater than 20% cellularity and 10% blasts at least 14 days after the first induction cycle Day 1
  2. Age ≥18 years
  3. Prior induction therapy, consisting of no more than 2 cycles of cytotoxic chemotherapy with at least one of the cycles consisting of anthracycline and cytarabine with reasonable schedule/dose intensity according to the discretion of the Investigator
  4. Histologically confirmed AML by hematopathology review performed within 4 weeks of study entry. Secondary AML due to progression of myelodysplastic syndrome or myeloproliferative neoplasms is acceptable for inclusion.
  5. Prior treatment for myelodysplastic syndrome or myeloproliferative neoplasm with hypomethylating agent or targeted agent is acceptable for inclusion
  6. Ejection fraction ≥40% by echocardiogram or multigated acquisition (MUGA) scan
  7. Cytoreduction therapy with leukapheresis or hydroxyurea is allowed
  8. Eastern Cooperative Oncology Group (ECOG) performance status of 0, 1, or 2
  9. Clinical laboratory values meeting the following criteria before Day 1 (Cycle 1, Day 1):

    1. An estimated glomerular filtration rate of ≥ 60mL/min based on Cockcroft-Gault equation calculated using serum creatinine levels
    2. Total bilirubin ≤2.0 mg/dL (≤3.0 mg/dL for subjects with known Gilbert's syndrome)
    3. Aspartate aminotransferase (AST) or ALT ≤2.5 × ULN, unless thought to be due to AML
    4. Activated partial thromboplastin time ≤1.5 × ULN and prothrombin time/international normalized ratio (PT/INR) ≤1.5 × ULN if not on anticoagulation therapy. Subjects receiving anticoagulation therapy with an agent such as warfarin or low-molecular weight heparin may be allowed to participate with the therapeutic range established before initiation of study treatment.
  10. For female subjects of childbearing potential, documentation of negative serum pregnancy test before randomization
  11. For female subjects of childbearing potential and male subjects whose sexual partners are of childbearing potential, agreement to use an effective method of contraception during the study and for at least 90 days after the last dose of ficlatuzumab. Effective birth control includes (a) intrauterine device plus 1 barrier method; (b) oral, implantable, or injectable contraceptive plus 1 barrier method; or (c) 2 barrier methods. Effective barrier methods are male or female condoms, diaphragms, and spermicides (creams or gels that contain a chemical to kill sperm).

Catheter-related thrombosis is not a cause for exclusion. Diagnosis of deep vein thrombosis or pulmonary embolism is allowed if it occurred >3 months before Day 1 and anticoagulation therapy is completed before Day 1.
  11. Any other medical condition or psychiatric condition that, in the opinion of the Investigator, might interfere with the subject's participation in the trial or interfere with the interpretation of trial results
  12. History of prior/concurrent malignancy whose natural history or ongoing treatment is expected to interfere with the safety or efficacy assessment of the intervention
