Brief Summary:
This is a multi-center, open-label, phase Ib/II study of combination therapy with APG-1252 plus paclitaxel in patients with relapsed/refractory small-cell lung cancer(SCLC). The phase Ib portion will be done using time-to-event continual reassessment method (TITE-CRM) methodology to determine the maximum tolerated dose (MTD)/recommended phase 2 dose (RP2D) of APG-1252 with a fixed dose of paclitaxel. The phase II portion will utilize a Simon two-stage design to determine the efficacy of the combination therapy with response rate as the primary endpoint.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Small Cell Lung Cancer Drug: APG-1252 Drug: Paclitaxel Phase 1 Phase 2

Detailed Description:

Upon enrollment, patients will undergo a comprehensive history and physical exam, along with baseline laboratory assessment. Baseline CT imaging will be required within 4 weeks prior to study entry. Archival tissue is mandatory; a fresh biopsy of the primary tumor or a metastatic lesion prior to initiation of therapy is optional and post-treatment tumor biopsy is strongly encouraged.

In the phase Ib portion, eligible patients will receive APG-1252 at the assigned dose-level on days 1, 8 and 15 plus a fixed-dose of paclitaxel 80 mg/m˄2 on days 1 and 8 of a 21-day cycle. There will be three dose-levels of APG-1252 (-1, 80 mg; 1, 160 mg; 2, 240 mg) with the first patient starting at dose-level 1 and subsequent patients at dose-levels determined by the TITE-CRM methodology. There will be no intra-patient dose-escalation. Patients will be continuously assessed for adverse events, including DLTs which are defined in the protocol. Response assessment by CT imaging will occur every 2 cycles and treatment will continue until progression of disease, unacceptable toxicity, patient preference to stop treatment, withdrawal of consent, or administrative discontinuation.

In the phase II portion, eligible patients will receive APG-1252 at the RP2D determined in the phase Ib portion on days 1, 8 and 15 plus paclitaxel 80 mg/m˄2 on days 1 and 8 of a 21-day cycle. Response assessment by CT imaging will occur every 2 cycles and treatment will continue until progression of disease, unacceptable toxicity, patient preference to stop treatment, withdrawal of consent, or administrative discontinuation.

Drug Information available for: Paclitaxel

Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: APG-1252 160 mg
intravenous infusion over 30 minutes on days 1, 8 and 15
Drug: APG-1252
APG-1252 (Ascentage Pharma) is a highly potent Bcl-2 family protein inhibitor with high binding affinity for Bcl-2, Bcl-xL and Bcl-w. APG-1252 possesses strong antitumor activity as a single-agent against tumor cells addicted to Bcl-2/Bcl-xL, and exhibits a much broader antitumor activity when combined with chemotherapeutic agents.

Drug: Paclitaxel
80 mg/m˄2 on days 1 and 8 of a 21-day cycle
Other Name: Abraxane

Experimental: APG-1252 240 mg

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Primary Toxicity Endpoint: dose-limiting toxicity (DLT) [ Time Frame: 21 days ]
    DLT will be will be assessed via CTCAE version 5.0

  2. Preliminary efficacy assessment [ Time Frame: 12 months ]
    Partial or complete response according to RECIST v1.1 criteria measured at anytime with 12 months of start of therapy

  • Eastern Cooperative Oncology Group (ECOG) performance status 0-1

  • Patients with previously treated, clinically controlled brain metastases are allowed. Clinically controlled is defined as surgical excision and/or radiation therapy followed by at least 14 days of stable neurologic function and no evidence of central nervous system (CNS) disease progression as determined by CT or MRI within 14 days prior to study enrollment. Continued use of corticosteroids is permissible.
  • Willingness to use contraception by a method that is deemed effective by the investigator by both males and female patients of child bearing potential and their partners throughout the treatment period and for at least three months following the last dose of study drug (postmenopausal women must have been amenorrheic for at least 12 months to be considered of non-childbearing potential).
  • Able to understand and willing to sign a written informed consent form
  • Able and willing to comply with study procedures and follow-up examination

Exclusion Criteria:

  • Receiving concurrent anti-cancer therapy (chemotherapy, radiation therapy, surgery, immunotherapy, hormonal therapy, targeted therapy, biologic therapy) or any investigational therapy within 14 days prior to the first dose of treatment, with the exception of hormones for hypothyroidism, estrogen replacement therapy (ERT), anti-estrogen analogs, or agonists required to suppress serum testosterone levels
